 Scandalous Christmas Encounters Volume 1

By Victoria Vale


You are cordially invited to a house party at Hexthorne Manor, the country estate of the Duke and Duchess of Avonleah. While gathering to celebrate Christmas with the duke and duchess, the members of the ton will indulge in their most wicked desires. Witness the scandalous Christmas encounters of the lords and ladies of London, as they escape to the country for a bit of revelry, a dash of indulgence, and a healthy dose of scandal.

Part One: A Christmas Masquerade
At a ball hosted during their Christmas house party, the Duke and Duchess of Avonleah sneak away for a bit of privacy. With social obligations and motherhood stretching Margaret Rycroft thin, her husband hopes that a night away from it all will be just the thing she needs. Little do they know, some of their guests have similar plans, or that their garden maze will be transformed into a hotbed of debauchery by their houseguests.

Part Two: A Christmas Most Scandalous
Quite some time has passed since Sheridan Cranfield, Viscount of Perth, has shared a woman with his wife. Yet, he senses that Cecily has become possessed with the desire to seduce a widow of the ton—a woman rumored to enjoy the pursuits of both men and women. Joining their efforts at the Christmas fete, the viscount and his wife set out to claim the widow for a night of passion.

Part Three: A Gift for Penelope
Lady Penelope Ingham is loath to have to attend the duke and duchess’ Christmas house party alone. However, with both her husbands seeing to their duties—one as an ensign at the War Office, the other attending the family estates and lands—she is left with no choice. Despite missing Colin and Edmond dearly, she throws herself into enjoying her time at Hexthorne Manor. Unbeknownst to her, someone at the ball has plans of their own for her… a temptation much too scandalous to resist.

As Christmas approaches, and the snow falls deep, Lady Ophelia's life is in danger.

A malevolent force stalks the ancient corridors of Castle Kintochlochie, in its remote Highland glen.

Is the castle really haunted?

Someone, or something, is determined to derail Ophelia's love affair with Hamish, so ruggedly handsome, yet wildly unsuitable.

She must call upon her wits — not just to discover the culprit... but, perhaps, to escape murder.

Head to the Scottish Highlands for this delightful 1920s romp, filled with humour and romance, and a page-turning mystery to solve.

'Highland Christmas' is the second in Emmanuelle de Maupassant's 'Highland' series, set between WW1 and WW2

A rakehell prince …
Third son of the king of Cardenas, Prince Damien Rothchester is known for his drinking, gambling, and whoring. Knowing he will never inherit the throne, he goes about life feeling purposeless. But when he steps into a glittering ballroom on the night of his twenty-fifth birthday, the roguish young prince’s life will be forever changed.

When Esmeralda Amador steps into the king’s ballroom to perform for the prince’s twenty-fifth birthday, every eye in the room is upon her. One pair of eyes intrigues her most of all … those of Prince Damien, seeming to stare straight through to her soul.

The two know nothing can ever come of their attraction; he is a prince, and she a Gypsy dancer. Yet, neither can seem to resist the passion that sparks when they are together, or the unmistakable call of destiny forcing their lives onto the same path.

However, love is not the only thing destiny has in store …
With a deadly plot against the royal family surrounding him in danger and intrigue, Damien will face a decision he never thought he would have to make. Will he step up to claim a responsibility that should never have fallen to the third son? Or will he abandon it to risk all for love?
