Lady Susan Winslow was outraged to find her father had betrothed her to some old earl. Her parents' marriage was a love match, and she wanted no less for herself.
Lord Grayson Harding had inherited the title since his father and elder brother passed away. His mother was trying to find a wife for him...so he took it into his own hands to find a wife and goes signs a betrothal agreement. When he runs into his old friend, he finds more than friendship. Something odd is going on with her brother and her stepmother raises the hair on the back of his neck.
A wonderful novella. I loved the characters...except for the villain, of course. It has a hint of Christmastide magic, too.
Lord Adam Hunter had come home from the war with his world a different place than he had planned. Anger and betrayal had pushed him to something he shouldn't have done. But that was behind him now. Life finally brightened when someone from his past reminded him of better times.
Colin Nelson, the fifth Earl of Shefford, won a building while gambling. He hoped it would be perfect to open a fencing salon for his brother to run. What he didn't expect was for it to be occupied by a beautiful woman who ran an orphanage. Things didn't quite turn out as Colin expected.

Book 1: Embers of Anger
Wicked Earls' Club - Multi-Author Series
Lord Thomas Bergen belongs to a club of bachelor earls and he's enjoying his single life. That is until a small donkey he names Clarence, changes everything. At first, it's just another widow he plans on wooing. But, something changes this Christmastide season.
Elizabeth Newton may be a widow, but she has three children to look after and isn't going to be some rogues play toy. But she does love the adorable donkey he's brought to add to her menagerie. He's quite the unusual little critter. Too much time around the handsome earl isn't good for her though. He's as...or more...charming than little Clarence.
Loved this story. It's so humorous and Clarence with his antics and little Marie with her childish lisp add so much to the story. Aunt Faith and Aunt Jane are unique in their own ways and put in the same house add even more humor.
