For the first time in one book, Signet puts together two wonderful stories by Elizabeth Mansfield that are sure to become a keeper for your Regency collection.

In A Splendid Indiscretion, Ada Surringham would not deny, if she could keep her mind on the question long enough, that she is more than somewhat confused. But not too confused to know that she is in love with Ivory Griffith, Viscount Mullineaux, a Corinthian of the highest order, not a hair out of place or a speck of lint to be found on his person. And he is in love with her. That is precisely the problem, for Ada loves him too much to foist her confused self on his perfect personage. What is she to do?

The Grand Passion is the story of Tess and Jeremy. Convinced that she will never find true love, Tess Brownlow decides to settle for an extreme fondness and marry Jeremy Beringer. But when kindhearted Jeremy dies tragically at the hands of a drunken sportsman, Tess vows revenge. She will show Matthew John Lotherwood, Marquis of Bradbourne, what it is like to lose, no matter how handsome he is. When she hatches a scheme to bring him to his knees, little did she anticipate that her plan would work so well, maybe a little too well, for in trapping him, she also traps herself in the drugging blend of love and desire that it seems only Matt can give.

Two well written and unforgettable stories. Ms. Mansfield has truly left her mark for her readers. Nothing Elizabeth Mansfield has ever written should be put into a box to be forgotten, but to be put on display for all to read and enjoy. All of her characters are wonderfully written and very believable. The love stories are full of passion and romance and of course love always conquers all.

A true keeper! Happy reading!!
