Louise is an average 16 year old girl. Well, almost. She eats a lot, sleeps a lot and has sarcasm listed as her second language. She is also a lover of chicken kievs, but that's beside the point. There's just one thing that set's her apart from others. Issues. Lots and lots of issues. Oh, and a stalker who claims he's going to teach her how to love herself.
Sweet sixteen, huh? Where did that phrase ever come from.

All of London is ablaze with rumors about the identity of Lady Scandal, a female brazen—and desperate—enough to advertise for a husband. But for Juliet, the young and surprisingly innocent widow, it’s her last option if she wants to avoid another marriage not of her choosing. Her prickly, pig-headed father has threatened to marry her off once again but this time Juliet is not without resources. She hopes the unentailed lands she possesses are enough to “bribe” some rich man to swoop in and save her from another unwanted union. And she has fingers and toes crossed she can find a potential bridegroom who will make her insides melt. Zeus Tanner, a self-made man from humble origins, has one driving goal—to reclaim his stolen birthright. When the scandalous advertisement catches his eye, Zeus believes he’s found the key to realizing his dream. But after surpassing the arduous task of obtaining an audience with the infamous Lady Scandal—who’s hidden herself behind a screen without explanation!—Zeus never imagined he’d be asked such a strange assortment of questions, given a test of manners over an atrocious scone, and ordered to disrobe and show her his chest—and “male parts”.
Zeus heartily refuses to comply with this last outrageous request. Un, he ponders out loud, the intriguing female is willing to trade her stockings and stays for the privilege… *MAD*WARNING* This Regency-era tale features flying slippers and stockings, a soaring silk neckcloth and silky undergarments, an unplanned eruption of epic proportions, and innocent licks that soon turn lust into love!

When Barry’s latest client demands that he find her father missing in the Amazon jungle, Barry has no idea he is about to risk his life searching for a lost tribe, a city of gold and a mystery older than time.

The area where Professor Clinden has disappeared is remote and largely unexplored. The fact that Laney insists on accompanying Barry and his colleague, Dr Elgar Finch, means extra responsibility on a trip already fraught with a fair amount of danger.

What he doesn’t expect from his client is duplicity. Searching for a famous naturalist who disappeared while investigating the Diamond-Toe frog is one thing, but finding yourself following the footsteps of many dead men before you on the trail of one of the world’s oldest mysteries, is another.
