Historical romance
                                     When the Marquess Returns

A Marquess in Waiting and the Cursed Heiress…
The ton is abuzz and mamas are lining up their daughters;
identical twins Maximus and Lucius St. Albans are making their
entry into society. But they’re not just eligible―they’re the missing
grandsons of the Duke of Warrington, stolen as infants.
However, Maximus doesn’t relish the battle with his cocky,
reprobate brother to be the next Marquess.  And he has no time for
the simpering misses now vying for his attention. Only Miss Sabina
Teverton has his interest.
She was resigned to life as a spinster but from the moment Sabina
meets Lord Maximus, her heart is torn. She dreams of a match with
him―but how can that be when she’s been branded as
cursed…and she knows secrets of that night long ago when
Maximus and his twin were snatched from their cradles?
