Description

"Maxwell mixes humor with meticulous characterization to create memorable stories." -Publishers Weekly With Lyon's Bride, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cathy Maxwell kicks off a wonderful historical romance series, The Chattan Curse-concerning a generational bane that ominously portends, "When a Chattan male falls in love, strike his heart with fire from above." In this sensational marriage of convenience tale with a delightful twist, the so-called "Lord Lyon" is the latest family member cursed to eschew love or die. So he seeks a bride he does not love, only to be smitten by an English duke's headstrong daughter, who compels him to dangerously tempt fate. Lyon's Bride is the kind of lush and sensuous love story that will appeal not only to RITA Award nominee Cathy Maxwell's legion of fans, but to the many devoted readers of Christina Dodd and Victoria Alexander as well.show more

Enter beautiful Thea Martin--a duke's headstrong, errant daughter and society's most brilliant matchmaker. Years ago, she and Lyon were inseparable, until he disappeared from her life without a word. Now she is charged with finding Lyon's bride--a woman he cannot love for a man Thea could love too well.show more
