The_Music_Of_Love_Minerva_Spencer_ebook

Portia Stefani is devastated when she learns her husband of ten years—world-famous pianist, Ivo—is a bigamist. With their academy for young ladies in financial difficulties thanks to his mismanagement, Ivo decides to adopt an alias and leave England to avoid imprisonment. Soon after Ivo leaves Portia learns his ship has gone down at sea.

Stacy Harrington is accustomed to strangers viewing him as a freak and his lying ex-fiancée has convinced him to keep love at a distance. But Stacy will be damned if he allows his albinism to turn him into a hermit or deny him of everything he loves: like playing the piano.

Drowning in debts and forced to close her faltering school, Portia decides to accept a lucrative and remote job offer: falsely using Ivo’s name to get the position.

Stacy is furious at Portia’s duplicity but he cannot resist the fiery woman’s skill on the piano—so he offers her a deal: one month to prove she deserves the position of music tutor. It doesn’t take long before their mutual love of the piano develops into attraction that flares in a night of passion.

When Portia learns she is expecting Stacy’s child, the two decide to marry. Their marriage of necessity is blossoming into a union of love when sinister forces from both their pasts threaten to tear the lovers apart, Stacy and Portia must learn to trust each other if they are going to save not only their marriage—but also their lives.

Book II in The Academy of Love Series:

A Figure of Love

A_Figure_Of_Love_Minerva_Spencer_ebook

Gareth Lockheart is one of the richest men in England, but it will take more than money for the reclusive eccentric to gain entrée into the corridors of power; it will also take a proper country estate and an aristocratic wife with impeccable connections. Gareth is determined to find the right woman the same way he does everything in his life: using logic and mathematics.

Serena Lombard might be the widow of a duke’s son, but she’s always existed on the ton’s fringes. The unconventional French émigré has worked hard to create a secure home for her son and has struggled to establish herself as a respected sculptor and landscape gardener.

Gareth should have known doing business with a woman would be a mistake, especially an unorthodox, opinionated, and far too appealing French widow who manages to destroy his iron-clad ability to concentrate without even trying.

Serena loves the project the wealthy industrialist has hired her to do; it’s too bad the man himself is so remote and unreadable. Not to mention distracting, gorgeous, and utterly captivating.

The only thing the two opposites can agree on is that they should avoid becoming entangled with one another—no matter how difficult that proves to be. But when Serena’s dangerous past catches up with her, it is Gareth she turns to for help and he doesn’t hesitate to give it. But can a man who needs order like other men need air give himself up to the most unpredictable emotion of all: Love?

The cure for a willful wife . . .
 
Drusilla Clare is full of opinions about why a woman shouldn’t marry. But that doesn’t stop the rush of desire she feels each time her best friend’s brother, notorious rake Gabriel Marlington, crosses her path. So imagine her dismay when she finds herself in the clutches of a scoundrel, only to be rescued by Gabriel himself.  And when Gabriel’s heartless—and heart-pounding—proposal comes, it’s enough to make Dru’s formidable resolve crumble . . .
 
. . . is a smitten husband.
 
She’s sharp-tongued, exasperating—and due to one careless moment—about to become his wife. Still, something about Drusilla has Gabriel intrigued. First there’s the delicious flush of her skin every time she delivers a barb—and then the surprisingly sensual feel of her in his arms. Gabriel even finds himself challenged by her unusual philosophies. And when he discovers a clandestine rival for Dru’s affection, his temperature flares even hotter. But the real threat to their happiness is one neither of the newlyweds sees coming. If they’re to save their future—and their very lives—they’ll need to trust in each other and their growing love.
