Daughter of the Rainbow
Shy but lovely Lady Iris Longleigh cares little about her upcoming debut into society. She has no interest in husband hunting and wishes only to spend her time painting at Bellevue Hall. Her mother, the ever-scheming duchess, Lady Flora, has other plans. She engages a young man of the nobility, Lord Valls, to paint her daughter's portrait to promote her eligibility. The two artists are made for each other. However, Lord Valls has a secret he cannot reveal that prevents their marriage. After displaying a scandalous painting of Iris, Valls is offered a choice by the duke--marry his daughter or die!

Daughter of the Rainbow
The Perfect Daughter
Lady Thalia Longleigh knows she is considered perfection personified. Unfortunately, the only man who intrigues her is the scar-faced Earl of Danelagh. He finds perfection oh so boring, or that is what he claims. Thalia’s brother warned him never to allow his imperious sister to get the upper hand, though Danelagh is immensely attracted to her and in need of a bride. With the help of her mother, Thalia seeks to capture the Earl’s attention—literally. Breaking all the rules of propriety to seduce him unleashes Thalia’s sensuality and breaks Danelagh’s icy exterior. But once she masters him, Thalia decides she might value another year of freedom from marriage—preferably in decadent Italy. Can Danelagh save her from her own recklessness and convince her of his love?
