Historical favorite Laura London back after 20 years!

From the author of the beloved romance classic The Windflower comes four novels available for the first time as an e-book this April:

Laura London is the pen name for the husband and wife writing team Tom and Sharon Curtis, authors of the bestseller The Windflower.

“The nice thing about historical fiction is that it exists outside of present time and in an unchanging past,” Tom told RT in their April issue, and we highly agree! I’ve included widgets for three of the four novels below as well as descriptions. Fans of London will rejoice as they reread their favorites after years of being out of print, and newcomers will fall in love with London’s enchanting writing.


A Heart Too Proud
https://s3.amazonaws.com/netgalley-covers/cover45000-small.png
Country bred and city green, Elizabeth Cordell lives a quiet life with her sisters in a humble cottage in Kent. But upon the death of their kindly guardian, the orphaned girl discovers that her happy home is now the property of a surprising new owner: the notorious Lord Nicholas Dearborne.

Devilishly rich, diabolically handsome-and rumored to be a despicable cad-Dearborne arrives in a grand carriage with a wicked woman and a wanton smirk. Elizabeth can't help but be flattered by Dearborne's bold flirtations, and can't refuse his offer to stay as a companion to his young ward. But how long can she resist his masterful seductions-when she craves his kiss as much as he craves hers?

The Bad Baron's Daughter
https://s3.amazonaws.com/netgalley-covers/cover42961-small.png
As the daughter of a blacklisted gambler, Katie Kendricks has few options in life but to work in a back-alley gin shop like the Merry Maidenhead. But when the most refined and dashing man she has ever seen-hellion Lord Linden-defends Katie's honor from a drunken brute, her life takes a surprising turn . . . 

Concerned for her safety, the handsome Lord Linden vows to take Katie under his wing and teach her the ways of the world. He will educate her on the duties of a proper duchess-and train her in the skills of a celebrated courtesan. But in transforming this simple duckling into a glorious swan, Linden unwittingly ignites a change in his own hardened heart. By some miracle, this innocent waif soon turns into the most desirable woman he has ever known. And now it is he who must be saved . . . by the unexpected pleasures of love.

Moonlight Mist
https://s3.amazonaws.com/netgalley-covers/cover42959-small.png
Known as the "naughtier twin" of Downpatrick Hall, Miss Lynden is far more brash and adventurous than her sister Lorraine. After flying a kite into a tree and climbing out onto a branch, she is saved from a terrible fall by Lord Justin Melbrooke, who pulls her through his open window . . . and into his bedroom.

It's all quite innocent, of course. But when an unannounced visitor walks in-and sees Lord Justin untangling Lynden's skirt-there is only one way to salvage her reputation: marriage. In a whirlwind ceremony, Lynden finds herself exchanging vows with one of England's most sought-after bachelors. Neither one is truly ready to settle down, but their heated words soon turn to heated kisses, and their marriage of convenience may just turn out to be the match of a lifetime.

Gypsy Heiress
https://s3.amazonaws.com/netgalley-covers/cover42958-small.png
A resourceful young gypsy living by her wits, Liza knows what proper-bred Englishmen think about women of her kind. So when she's caught trespassing on the estate of the esteemed Earl of Brockhaven, she expects no mercy. Fortunately for her, the master of the house-the impossibly handsome Lord Stewart-finds the lovely Liza to be utterly enchanting, a wild gypsy rose just waiting to be plucked . . .

Stewart soon learns that there's more to this girl than meets the eye. No ordinary vagabond, Liza displays a fierce intelligence that sets his heart on fire-and she wears a mysterious medallion that arouses his curiosity. An old family heirloom, it is Liza's only link to a long-lost fortune. But the poor girl can't even think about money-when she would gladly trade it all for one reckless night in Stewart's arms.

Love's a Stage
Love's a Stage
From the moment she arrives in the big city, Miss Frances Atherton finds herself in the most treacherous of scenarios-until a golden-haired stranger comes to her rescue. The dashing Mr. David is as handsome and heroic as any leading man in a play. He is also, she learns, one of the most notorious rakes in London. A rake with a secret as shocking and dramatic as her own . . . 

Frances is a country parson's daughter pretending to be an actress. Her plan is to unmask the infamous Blue Specter, a smuggler who framed her father and hides among the actors, thieves, and ne'er-do-wells of Drury Lane. The plot thickens when David is revealed to be Lord Landry-the most renowned playwright of the day. If all the world's a stage, Frances and David are just the players to expose the Specter's crimes. But how long can they hide their growing attraction . . . when their hearts and their lives are in very real danger?

I've read A Heart Too Proud, Love's a Stage, and Gypsy Heiress and liked them all. This tag-team plots brilliant characters, plot, and writes sexual tension very well. ^_^ Hope you check these out!
