Download and read online Schooling the Viscount in PDF and EPUB “Schooling the Viscount is a charming, sexy romp through the English countryside. Readers will fall in love with the little town of Puddling-on-the-Wold. I did!” —Vanessa Kelly, USA Today bestselling author Welcome to Puddling‑on‑the‑Wold, where the sons and daughters of Victorian nobility come for a little rest, recuperation, and “rehab,” in this brand-new series of rebellious romance from Maggie Robinson. After a harrowing tour of duty abroad, Captain Lord Henry Challoner fought to keep his memories at bay with two of his preferred vices: liquor and ladies. But the gin did more harm than good—as did Henry’s romantic entanglements, since he was supposed to be finding a suitable bride. Next stop: The tiny village of Gloucestershire, where Henry can finally sober up without distraction or temptation. Or so he thinks… A simple country schoolteacher, Rachel Everett was never meant to cross paths with a gentleman such as Henry. What could such a worldly man ever see in her? As it turns out, everything. Beautiful, fiercely intelligent Rachel is Henry’s dream woman—and wife. Such a match would be scandalous for his family of course, and Rachel has no business meddling with a resident at the famed, rather draconian, Puddling Rehabilitation Foundation. All the better, for two lost souls with nothing to lose—and oh so very much to gain. Praise for Maggie Robinson’s Lady Anne’s Lover “Robinson never fails to provide plenty of brio, banter, and interpersonal heat…Fans of humorous historicals will enjoy this delightful romp.” —Publishers Weekly “A charming, fun Regency romp that combines an innovative, compelling plot with characters that jump off the page and a hot, captivating romance that will tug at heartstrings.” —Kirkus Reviews “Lively repartee and steamy sensuality, yet maintains the mystery to the very end.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

Download and read online Stiff Upper Lip in PDF and EPUB This is the story of generations of parents, Britain's richest and grandest, who believed that being miserable at school was necessary to make a good and successful citizen. Childish suffering was a price they accepted for the preservation of their class, and their entitlement. The children who were moulded by this misery and abuse went on - as they still do - to run Britain's public institutions and private companies. Confronting the truth of his own schooldays and the crimes he witnessed, Alex Renton has revealed a much bigger story. It is of a profound malaise in the British elite, shown up by tolerance of the abuse of its own children that amounts to collusion. This culture and its traditions, and the hypocrisy, cronyism and conspiracy that underpin them, are key to any explanation of the scandals over sexual abuse, violence and cover-up in child care institutions that are now shocking the nation. As Renton shows, complicity in this is the bleak secret at the heart of today's British elite.

Having long ago given up on the dream of him, she married another. Years later, she is a young, lonely widow who does not fit in with the ton. When Lucien’s family enlists her aid to reunite father and son, she leaps at the opportunity to not only aid her former friend, but to also escape London.

Yet Eloise is determined to win Lucien’s love once and for all...if only Lucien can set aside the pain of his past and risk all on a lady's heart. (less)
Download and read online The Kiss of a Viscount in PDF and EPUB A kiss is just a kiss ... or is it? George Bennett-Jones has just inherited his uncle's viscountcy. His politically astute mistress, Josephine, insists he must find a bride. Through a series of lessons, she instructs George on the finer points of meeting and courting a woman of the "ton" - and she has one in mind for him. George spies Lady Elizabeth Carlington dancing with the Earl of Trenton and it's love at first sight. But the auburn-haired beauty is quite sure the earl will offer for her hand, and she has every intention of accepting; even if his kiss has left her feeling as if she was kissed by her best friend's dog When Elizabeth mentions her horrible first kiss during the ball's supper, George implies there is an art to kissing, innocently offering to replace her poor first impression with a proper kiss. Intrigued, and unaware that George is a titled gentleman, Elizabeth accepts his offer at the next ball. George's stunning kiss has the emboldened daughter of a marquess asking for more, but will George do whatever Elizabeth asks of him? Knowing she will probably accept the earl's marriage proposal despite his efforts to prove his love for her? When George has only one evening to court Elizabeth, the lessons of a mistress prove invaluable in "The Kiss of a Viscount."

Download and read online Mail Men in PDF and EPUB "A wonderfully gossipy history" Sunday Times "Riotously Entertaining" New Statesman Perhaps because of the power and fear that the Daily Mail commands, this is the very first book to provide an unauthorized account of the newspaper with more global readers than any other. With a gripping personality-led narrative, informed by well-placed sources, Mail Men investigates the secret behind the Mail's extraordinary longevity and commercial success, from its first edition on 4 May 1896, to its global MailOnline website today. But, it also examines the controversies that have beset the paper - from its owner's flirtation with fascism in the 1930s to its fractious relationship with liberals, celebrities and politicians today. Like being a fly on the wall at one of the most influential offices in the land, Mail Men is the unofficial story of an institution that has become the self-proclaimed voice of middle England, and the adversary of liberals everywhere. Journalist Adrian Addison gives us a revealing insight into the colourful cast of senior 'Mail-Men' (yes, nearly all men) who have moulded the paper through the decades - from Alfred C. Harmsworth, the Mail's founder and first owner to Paul Dacre the awkward reporter who has become one of the most feared, hated, secretive, and respected editors in Britain. An absorbing history of one of the most divisive yet successful newspapers in print today, this is an essential read if you wish to understand modern Britain.
