Mary Brendan was born in North London, the third daughter in a family of six children; four girls and two boys. She was educated at the local grammar school and started work for an international oil company, firstly as a clerk and later as a personnel secretary. Always a keen reader of historical romance novels, she decided to try her hand at writing a Regency novel during my youngest son's afternoon naps. What started as a lazy lunchtime indulgence, sandwich in one hand, notepad in the other, soon developed into a highly enjoyable part-time occupation. She was delighted when her first work was accepted for publication in the United States in 1986. She now lives in a village in Suffolk, and when not at her word processor creating a hunky hero and feisty heroine to spark against one another, likes to relaxe by browsing junk shops for curios and antiques, or by visiting the local Tandoori for a prawn dansak and a glass or two of red wine.
Beholden to an irresistible rogue... When her half-sister goes missing, respectable Faye Shawcross is at her wits end! Convinced her impulsive younger sister has got herself mired in potential scandal, Faye is unsure where to turn to for help - certainly not her upstanding fiance! The last person she expects to come to her rescue is the very man she's condemned a rogue, Ryan Kavanagh, the dis-honourable, and disconcertingly alluring viscount! The magnetic Irishman knows he raises Faye's passions, however reluctantly. He can nip her impending family scandal in the bud, for a price - he wants Faye as his mistress...
WHERE WAS THE TENDER MAN SHE KNEW BEFORE?Mrs. Victoria Hart, recently widowed, suddenly found herself impoverished. Her only hope of financial aid was David, Viscount Courtenay-the man who'd loved and cherished her before abandoning her seven years previously.Suggesting a marriage of convenience, Victoria was horrified when David offered a different bargain instead-be his mistress!
AN INDECENT PROPOSAL!Miss Rebecca Nash had found refuge and a kind landlord in Robin, Lord Rumsden. She'd needed both five years ago, when she'd lost her parents and fiance, and her brother Simon had disappeared with her dowry. Now, suddenly, Robin was dead, and his heir, Luke Trelawney, intended to wind matters up quickly before he returned to Cornwall.At his first sight of Rebecca, he changed his mind. Mistakenly believing Rebecca to have been Robin's mistress, he saw no reason she could not be his, as well. But Rebecca had other ideas!
She could flee...Miss Emma Worthington knew that at twenty-seven she was on the shelf, but even that could not persuade her to marry an appalling roue to save her father from debt. The only escape was to run away to Bath. It seemed the worst of bad luck that Richard Du Quesne should be there, showing every sign of wanting to save her from herself. Was there nowhere she could hide from the man known as the Silver Squire-and did she really want to?
