The long awaited book 5 in the best selling Dark Gardens series by Meara Platt has arrived!!
The Stone of Draloch has prophesied a great war within the five underworld realms, pitting the Dragon Lords against each other. Dragon Lord Mordain must choose which side to take, that of the powerful High King Brihann who has now raised an army of the darkest forces ever to exist, or that of Dragon Lord Bloodaxe and his brother, Saron, the Duke of Draloch, who are the two black dragons desperately fighting to save their world and those of man and Fae. The pull toward darkness is strong in Mordain, for he is the son of the Fallen Angel. But there is a mysterious mortal girl who has entered his life, and the tug of love is perhaps stronger than any dark force in existence. But who is Aideen Pengalon, this girl whose name means little fire? Will she be the one to destroy him or is she destined to be his salvation?
Aideen Pengalon grew up in a Yorkshire orphanage and has no idea who she is or where she belongs, but it cannot possibly be in the arms of Lucien Mordain, a dragon shifter duke of the underworld who claims she is an angel and has powers greater than his own. The Stone of Draloch has shown her the future and in it she is killing Lucien. How can this be? Her heart cries out for him, the mighty red dragon who rules one of the five underworld realms. He calls her little fire and insists he will never harm her because she is his dragon mate and their souls are bound to each other.
But how can he ignore what the Stone of Draloch has shown them? Will her love for Lucien be enough to change the course of his dark destiny?

Miss Agnes Bottombrook accepted long ago that she would never marry. Not even when she was still young did gentlemen see anything in her that would appeal to them. Now, at nine-and-twenty years of age, all hope is lost and Agnes is on the shelf for good.
Or isn’t she?
Out of nowhere, the rakishly handsome—and young, mind you!—Lord Wentford asks Agnes for a dance, shocking not only Agnes but all of London society, most of all, his own mother. Certain that his intentions are far from honorable, Agnes tries her utmost to rebuff the young lord and reveal him as a scoundrel, only seeking her attention to win a bet or wager of some kind.
Unfortunately, Lord Wentford cannot be rebuffed, no matter how hard Agnes tries, forcing her to contemplate the possibility—remote as it might be—that he might truly…care for her.
Or doesn’t he?
Without her consent, Agnes finds herself swept off her feet by her most unexpected suitor, doubting her own sanity when desires she thought she had long since abandoned resurface. But will she dare believe him?
Would she be a fool to do so…or rather not to do so?

Kitty Dell is an intellectual and has made certain scientific discoveries she takes a great amount of pride in. For now, though, she must put her books aside, as she is on her way to London for her launch season. She is doubtful that she will meet a gentleman who will appreciate her mind, but secretly hopeful of it. She has at least the benefit of being introduced to various members of the esteemed Royal Society, and one particular gentleman-member does seem to hold a high regard for her intellect.
If Giles Dermot, Marquess of Grayson, had ever heard of the Royal Society, he just as quickly forgot it. He hasn’t forgotten Miss Dell, however. He met the lady at Newmarket and was instantly charmed. He realizes she considers herself bookish, but certainly she will throw over her learned pursuits when the balls and parties commence. As for himself, though he has never aspired to dry scholarship, he does not think a life well-lived without poetry and Shakespeare. In society, he is regarded as the dandiest of the dandies, an unrepentant bachelor, and a shameless flirt. Mamas are well-advised to steer their daughters elsewhere.
As Kitty navigates the unfamiliar waters of the season, the Royal Society is threatened with a ruinous mystery. Somebody is set on destroying it and everybody is searching for clues. Including Lord Grayson, as how else is he to win Miss Dell’s scholarly heart?
Never were two people less suited. Unless one considers that the gentleman might learn to spend less time on his neckcloth and the lady might learn to spend less time buried in a book.

A chance meeting at dawn on Hogmanay brings a tall, dark, and handsome man into Lady Calliope’s life. Will he bring good fortune and the promise of love, or disaster?
Viscount William Chattsworth is envious of his cousin, the duke. The duke’s good fortune and lofty position in society has been well-earned. The viscount’s circumstances have been drastically reduced after his father, the earl, mysteriously disappears. Thinking to make the most of the distant familial connection, he seeks an audience with the duke. The audience does not go as planned, and the half-truths he tells the duke are exposed as angry words are exchanged.
Lady Calliope Harrington has been enjoying an extended stay at Wyndmere Hall with the duke’s sister, Lady Phoebe, and their good friend, Lady Aurelia Coddington, as she prepares to marry the duke’s brother. Distracted by the raised voices coming out of the duke’s upstairs study, she pauses at the top of the stairs to listen.
The viscount storms out of the study and barrels into Lady Calliope, catching her before she falls headlong down the staircase. Breathless from having the wind knocked out of her, Calliope cannot speak, only cling to her rescuer’s arms.
The duke rushes out of his study and sees Lady Calliope in the viscount’s arms, the butler and housekeeper at the bottom of the stairs staring at the couple, and immediately demands his cousin marry Calliope to save her reputation.
The viscount is saddled with a bride-to-be, who has no fortune or family to speak of, and is on shaky terms with his benefactor, the duke. Calliope is about to marry a man who is blinded by envy and desperately in search of an heiress, while she has nothing to offer him.
Living apart, the viscount in London at the behest of the duke, and Calliope at Chattsworth Manor, the couple slowly realize the instant attraction they had felt on Hogmanay has only grown stronger, while Calliope’s frustration over their hasty marriage to protect her name, and the viscount’s need to marry an heiress, lessen over time.
Will the viscount let go of the crippling envy that keeps him from seeing the inner strength beneath Calliope’s quiet beauty and come to love her? Will Calliope learn to trust the viscount and finally find her true place in life—at the viscount’s side?

Miss Sophia Upchurch is not having a good day. Her employer is dead, she’s been robbed, she’s now stranded in a strange city and the handsome man she’d met on the stage, the man she’d flirted with, is no longer simply Mr. Henry Meredith, a possible suitor. He turns out to be Lord Henry Meredith, Viscount Marchwood, and so far above her reach there can’t possibly be any hope even as he heroically secured a position for her as companion to his cousin. But that position is beset with complications and Sophie fears the young woman’s life is in danger.
When Sophie informs Henry of her suspicions, he’s dubious at best. But the more he looks into the matter the more convinced he becomes that she is correct. And that means not only is his cousin in danger but so is a woman he is coming to care for very deeply…possibly even a woman he loves.
Can they get to the bottom of it before his cousin succumbs to the plot? And assuming they survive to have a future, can he convince Sophie to share it with him?
