Charmed and Dangerous Mission Impossible Series
Historical Romantic Suspense at its Best
Running Wild

When Cassandra Sheridan agreed to an arranged marriage to the Earl of Hampstead, she never
dreamed the cad wouldn't even bother to appear for their betrothal ball. It seems her intended cares
more for gallivanting than meeting his bride to be! So Cassie decides to enjoy an adventure of her
own and sets off across Scotland ... and meets a dashing stranger who has elevated dueling and
deception to an art form.

A dedicated spy on a mission, the Earl of Hamptsead has more on his mind than a silly party. Now
fate has thrown him together with a vivacious lady whom he must protect from harm, and whose
sensuous beauty is proving most distracting. Worse still, Devlyn is horrified to discover she's the
very woman he's engaged to marry!

With their lives and reputations in equal peril, do they dare surrender to their irresistible desires?

Succumbing to Sin...

Bethany Munro was once madly in love with dashing Ian Rockwell. Then Ian left on a
mission for the crown, and Bethany was forced to put her heart aside...until one
glittering night when she spies him across a crowded ballroom, and the feelings she
once felt come rushing back. But she has her secrets...

...and so does he. Sir Ian Rockwell has led a dangerous life and is now a suspect in a
crime he did not commit. He never imagined the naive girl he knew so long ago could
be the beauty standing before him now or that she could help prove his innocence.
But in a world of glamour and intrigue where nothing is as it seems, their perilous
game of seduction soon turns into a night of sin, a night where they both discover the
only thing more dangerous than passion is falling love.
