A Lady of Distinction

Morgan Beauchamp doesn’t have much use for Regency society. He’d rather be digging in the Egyptian desert for the artifacts he sells to wealthy collectors. But his latest shipment goes wrong when he’s forced to work with Egyptologist Lady Juliet Cavendish. And then strange happenings begin afflicting the household...

Lady Juliet dismisses rumors that Beauchamp unleashed an ancient curse and roused the mummy’s wrath. She’s more concerned with the explorer’s ability to unleash her own dormant passions, rousing her from her scholarly existence to long for a life of adventure far from her father's townhouse.

"A bit of THE MUMMY and a lot of Indiana Jones merge in this entertaining nonstop read... Simmons creates engaging characters and spices up her romance with plenty of action and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat." – Romantic Times

The Devil's Lady

Bid by King Edward to marry one of his knights, Aisley de Laci hopes to avoid the altar by choosing Baron Montmorency. 'Tis a union she is certain none will endorse, especially the baron, who is rumored to practice the dark arts from his isolated keep.

Renowned in battle, the Red Knight has secluded himself at Dunmurrow for reasons of his own. And he does not want a wife, no matter how wealthy and beautiful she might be. But even he cannot defy the king's order, and what comes to him, he takes—and holds.

Although Aisley refuses to believe the tales that make Montmorency more myth than mortal, she begins to wonder whether he does possess mysterious powers. How else to explain her own growing feelings for her husband, a man so shrouded in shadow she has never seen his face?

Was she under a spell or truly the Devil’s Lady?

It Had to Be You

What if Cinderella didn’t want to go to the ball?

Wedding planner Paige Porter doesn't believe in fairy tales. She's seen too many bridezillas, randy grooms, and short-lived marriages. But would-be fairy godmother Beatrice Maitland has other ideas. Her grandson Siegfried is one of the city's most eligible bachelors—if anyone could drag him away from his computer lab.

As CEO of The Maitland Company and the latest in a family of inventors, Siegfried might forget to eat or sleep, but he can't forget Paige Porter. He might even have to put aside his all-consuming research for a new venture: Project Paige.

Because when he saw her he knew: It Had to Be You.

“Unique and romantic, It Had To Be You by Deborah Simmons will capture you and delight you from page one until the last line.” - Singletitles
