A USA Today Bestseller! "... lively plot, engaging characters and heated love scenes make this a page-turner."—RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars In order to save her family, Emma Chadwick must find employment at an infamous gambling hell where she will learn there is pleasure to be found in falling—and sometimes being a little bad can feel so very good. Emma Chadwick always assumed she'd live and die the daughter of a gentleman. But when her father's death reveals a world of staggering debt and dangerous moneylenders, she must risk her good name and put her talent for mathematics to use, taking a position as bookkeeper at London's most notorious gambling hell. Surrounded by vice and corruption on all sides, it is imperative the ton never discovers Emma's shameful secret or her reputation—and her life—will be ruined. But Roderick Bentley, the hell's sinfully wealthy owner, awakens a hunger Emma cannot deny. Drawn deep into an underworld of high stakes gambling and reckless overindulgence, she soon discovers that to win the love of a ruthless scoundrel, she will have to play the game...and give in to the pleasure of falling from grace. "You should not have kissed me," she replied breathlessly. "I do a lot of things I shouldn't. It does not mean I won't do them again."

"Bold and sexy."—Booklist When her family is unable to pay its debts, Lily Chadwick is stolen from her debut and dragged into the seedy underbelly of London's pleasure district. There she'll discover the dark thrill of falling from grace and into the arms of a devilishly handsome earl. Lily Chadwick has spent her life playing the respectable debutante. But when an unscrupulous moneylender snatches her off the street and puts her up for auction at a pleasure house, she finds herself in the possession of a man who fills her with breathless terror and impossible yearning. Though the Earl of Harte claimed Lily with the highest bid, he hides a painful secret—one that has kept him from knowing the pleasure of a lover's touch. Even the barest brush of skin brings him physical pain, and he's spent his life keeping the world at arm's length. But there's something about Lily that maddens him, bewitches him, compels him...and drives him toward the one woman brave and kind enough to heal his troubled heart. "Are you afraid?" "Yes," she replied in a soft voice. "But I love the way you frighten me."

She's a liar. She's a con. She's a thief. And God help him, but he'll do anything to keep her safe. Beautiful and conniving, maddening and brilliant, Esther is everything private detective Samuel Brass shouldn't want. Esther knows she's put herself in terrible danger, but nothing will stop her from making amends-not her family's enemies, not old fears, and certainly not the domineering, interfering, and undeniably handsome former officer of the Scotland Yard. Yet whenever he's near, Samuel makes her long for a life that can never be hers...and wish she were worthy of being saved. Second in an exciting late Victorian romance series from a RITA Award nominee!

Losing none of her witty dialogue or clever plotting, she pulls readers this way and that as the story swiftly turns from suspense to romance and back again."-RT Book Reviews on A Talent for Trickery

Berlin 1942: Die Verhaftung durch die Gestapo steht unmittelbar bevor. Die junge Marie Jalowicz will leben und taucht unter. Über 50 Jahre danach erzählt Marie Jalowicz Simon erstmals ihre ganze Geschichte. 77 Tonbänder entstehen – sie sind die Grundlage dieses einzigartigen Zeitdokuments. Offen und schonungslos schildert Marie Jalowicz, was es heißt, sich Tag für Tag im nationalsozialistischen Berlin durchzuschlagen: Sie braucht falsche Papiere, sichere Verstecke und sie braucht Menschen, die ihr helfen. Vergeblich versucht sie, durch eine Scheinheirat mit einem Chinesen zu entkommen oder über Bulgarien nach Palästina zu fliehen. Sie findet Unterschlupf im Artistenmilieu und lebt mit einem holländischen Fremdarbeiter zusammen. Immer wieder retten sie ihr ungewöhnlicher Mut und ihre Schlagfertigkeit – der authentische Bericht einer außergewöhnlichen jungen Frau, deren unbedingter Lebenswille sich durch nichts brechen ließ. Mit einem Nachwort von Hermann Simon, Sohn von Marie Jalowicz Simon, Historiker und Direktor der Stiftung Neue Synagoge Berlin – Centrum Judaicum.
