  • Paperback
  • £7.99

An erotic tale for fans of the Fifty Shades trilogy.

You've devoured Fifty Shades . . . Now wrap yourself up in Wild Silk.

Merran Faulkner inherits her eccentric uncle's fortune, but there's one condition: as a world-famous explorer, it was his dying wish that she should travel to South America to search for a lost Inca treasure. Certainly not something the sheltered heiress had in mind for her next vacation.

But as Merran treks her way through the jungle, her uncle's artefact isn't her only new discovery. Meeting the mysterious Don Miguel, Merran's Amazonian adventure becomes so much more than her uncle's will ever entailed. And as Merran gets to know Don, with his temptingly exotic ways, suddenly the wild side she's tried so desperately hard to hide wants to come out and play . . .

Clara Hayward revels in her position as headmistress of the most prestigious ladies' finishing school in England. But when her parents die-- leaving their import company on the edge of bankruptcy-- the school becomes Clara's only hope of rescuing her family from financial ruin. Armed with her wits and her substantial connections, Clara expands the school's curriculum to incorporate an exclusive summer itinerary-- an enterprise that caters only to the wealthiest members of the ton. It is a clever solution that might just work,as long as Clara remains strictly professional with the handsome Duke of Holloway.August Faulkner was never supposed to be a duke. As the youngest son of the 12th Duke of Holloway, he spent many years cultivating his reputation as a playboy before unexpectedly inheriting the title. It's a lifestyle that provides a convenient cover for his true passion--seeking out companies on the brink of financial disaster and swallowing them for profit. And there are rumors that the once-prosperous import company held by Lancelot Hayward may be ripe for taking. Which is why he's agreed to chaperone his younger sister on her summer school adventure--it's the perfect opportunity to investigate the Hayward family. Except nothing could have prepared him for Clara Hayward. Charmed by her humor and cleverness, August finds himself spending more and more time with her, and he quickly realizes it's not just her family business he wants...

From her mile-long legs to her razor-sharp wit, Maisa Bradley is like nothing Coot Lake, Minnesota, has ever seen . . . and she's about to take Sam on the ride of his life.

Sam's dazzling blue eyes beg her to reveal all her secrets, but how much should she tell? Getting snowed in with the sexiest cop in the frozen north may not be the worst way to decide . . .'Hoyt's writing is almost too good to be true' Lisa Kleypas
