When Amelia Grant’s past catches up with her and threatens to destroy the life she’s built, Nick Riley doesn’t hesitate to protect her.

With just one look Nick completely undoes her. He wanted her surrender and she all but threw it at his feet. She’s revealed her darkest secrets . . . let him into her heart as he drew her deeper into forbidden games of desire . . .

But what happens when Nick’s secrets can destroy the very foundation they’ve build between each other? Will he let Amelia through the barriers of his past? Or will the truth tear them apart? 
Deciding that life had far more to offer than a nine to five job, bickering children and housework of any kind (unless she’s on a deadline when everything is magically spotless), TIFFANY CLARE opened up her laptop to write stories she could get lost in. Tiffany writes sexy historical romances set in the Victorian era. She lives in Toronto with her husband, two kids and two dogs and you can find out more about her and her books at

Teaser #2
She didn’t miss the note of intimacy in his comment. And while his admission and the underlying innuendo should have her running from the house, she found herself intrigued. What in the world was wrong with her? Her imaginings from last night were what was wrong with her. She’d sketched a picture of this man in her mind that was too perfect and without flaws. Everyone had flaws.
She decided right then and there that she couldn’t trust herself in his presence. Her imagination had run wild with this man’s character, and she couldn’t help but paint him as some sort of hero, not only for rescuing her but also for giving her the things she desperately needed right now—a safe place, a job . . . a chance.
With self-preservation finally at the forefront of her thoughts, she managed to take an uneven step away from him. The misstep shot a heavy dose of pain up her leg, and it felt like her stomach was in her throat with the sudden correction in her balance. But Mr. Riley grasped her arm firmly. Instead of toppling back, she was crushed along the length of his body.
With her hands wrapped around his strong forearms, she let him steady her long enough that her head stopped spinning. His thumbs brushed back and forth over the inside of her wrist, letting her focus on the intimacy of his touch instead of the pain radiating from her ankle.
His nearness did strange things to her, things that made her want to step closer instead of away from him, to be touched everywhere as familiarly as he stroked her wrist. She shook her head and dropped her arms to her sides. She needed to get a better grasp on her emotions, her desires.

Cheryl Holt's Lost Lords's Scavenger Hunt ~ Giveaway and Excerpt

I'm getting ready to release my 40th novel!  It's a huge career milestone for me, and I hope all of you will help me celebrate by enjoying my new trilogy, "The Lost Lords of Radcliffe."

The three books are a "real" trilogy, with one story leading into the next and the drama building with each novel.  I'm releasing them over the summer so you'll be able to read the 2nd and 3rd books right away without having to wait months or years to find out what happens.  HEART'S DELIGHT will be here on June 1st.  HEART'S DESIRE is coming on July 1st.  And Book 3, HEART'S DEMAND--my 40th novel!!!--will be here onAugust 1st.  It will be a great summer of sexy, yummy reading.  

The 3 novels will be released as e-books and print books.  The e-version will be available for all e-readers, but the print books will not appear in stores.  They will have to be ordered on-line at Amazon.  The covers are beautiful, the stories breathtaking, heartbreaking, dramatic, and thrilling.  I think it's my best work yet.  

I hope you'll spend the summer--with me!  And my Lost Lords of Radcliffe.  Coming June, July, and August of 2015.

“You have a visitor, Mr. Scott.”

“I asked not to be disturbed. Were you confused by my order? Wasn’t I clear?”

“You were clear, sir, but she insisted on talking to you. She wouldn’t go away.”

“She? It’s a woman?”


“If you couldn’t get rid of a measly woman, what good are you at guarding the door?”

“She’s a wee sprite,” the man responded, “but she seems ferocious. I didn’t think I should rile her.”

“She might bite?”


“Is she pretty?”

There was the most awkward pause as she was thoroughly evaluated.

Maggie could have answered the idiotic question herself. At the moment, she was attired in a drab gray dress, white fabric at the collar and cuffs, and buttoned up from chin to toes as any proper British woman should be. Her hair was pulled into a tight chignon, her gray bonnet shielding the vibrant red color and washing out her features.

She might have been a fussy governess, but in light of the dreary, poverty-filled world in which she existed, she deliberately strove to appear nondescript.

But she had a mirror in her bedchamber, and she could see herself in it. With her auburn hair and merry blue eyes, she was very fetching. She was too thin though, work and worry leaving scant time for leisure pursuits, and there was no overabundance of food at the mission, so her diet was rather sparse. Yet despite being slender, she was femininely curved in all the right spots.

While she wasn’t inclined to vanity, she recognized that she’d be incensed if she was described as plain or ordinary, and she snapped, “Oh, for pity’s sake. Just open the blasted door.”

“I wouldn’t dare to.”

Previously in her life she’d been a courteous young lady of good family and good reputation, but seven years spent interacting with street urchins had toughened her. Having shed many of her prior virtues, she reached for the knob and blustered in without considering whether she should.

“Mr. Scott, I presume?” She’d been prepared to march over in a huff, but she stumbled to a halt.

“Who the hell are you?” he barked.

She stood very still, determined not to exhibit by so much as the flicker of a brow that she was shocked or dismayed. Why, oh why, had she barged in? What was she thinking?
