A Lady Looking for Sin
Once London’s reigning debutante, Lady Beatrice Wodehouse is poised for a life of happiness when an accident shatters her dreams. Renamed Lady Beastly by vicious gossips, she flees loss and betrayal, escaping to the countryside. There, she finds solace in anonymity and discovers new purpose, turning her estate into a haven for society’s outcasts. Yet a shard of her old dream remains: she yearns for a taste of forbidden passion… 

A Gentleman in Search of Redemption
Once London’s most feckless rake, Wickham Murray has fought to redeem his honor and prove that he is more than a shallow Adonis. Now a railway industrialist, he’s as renowned for his prowess in the boardroom as in the bedchamber. His latest venture will be the greatest success of his career: the only obstacle is a stubborn country spinster who refuses to sell him her land. On his way to negotiate with her, he stops at a masquerade, where an encounter with a masked lady changes everything he thought he knew about desire…

Their Timeless Tale
Negotiations go from heated to scorching as Bea and Wick discover that they are not only opponents in business but lovers bonded by a night of ecstasy that neither can forget. As they wrestle with all-consuming passion and blossoming love, they must also contend with deadly attacks from a mysterious foe. In order to survive, they will have to unravel dark secrets…and trust the truth of their own hearts.

“The writing (as always) was absolutely wonderful and held me captivated from beginning to end. The emotion flowed off the pages and it felt like I was right there with the characters. Absolutely mesmerizing. Beatrice and Wick were perfect for each other and had sizzling hot chemistry and I couldn’t get enough of it!”

– Candace, Goodreads, 5 stars

“Wick and Bea bring out the best in each other and I love how their relationship progressed in an organic way. Their love story is both incredibly steamy and heartfelt (the best of both worlds!). And when I say steamy, I mean S T E A M Y. I really enjoyed the mystery arc, which actually took a surprising turn that I didn’t see coming. Unlike most historical romances that I read this year, Callaway crafts an interesting and engaging mystery that actually holds my interest.”

– Romance Library

“Had to get the fire hose out – hot, hot, hot. Normally I never use hot as a description for a book, but believe me, this one is definitely high octane. You get all the feels in all the right places when reading a Grace Callaway book. A twist on Beauty and the Beast that is fun, flirty, fabulous, and fantastic. You might remember Wickham as Richard’s brother from the Heart of Enquiry series in a not so favorable light, but in this story he is delicious, dirty-talking, and deadly gorgeous. He is also so very kind and loving and really humble in his own way. Beatrice is a woman hardened by her circumstances. She was once an incomparable but because of her selfless act, she becomes Lady Beastly to those she formerly perceived as friends. We can ask ourselves why this happens but it happens for a reason. She becomes a better person not relying on her looks but rather her compassion. The love affair between Wick and Bea is beautiful (and scorching). I loved this story and all of its intricacies of how beauty is perceived.

– Angela, Goodreads

“I absolutely adored Wickham and Beatrice’s story!! The connection they had was there from the start even though they were adversaries. I loved watching them work through all their obstacles and how they helped each other overcome their past.”

– Amy, Goodreads, 5 stars

“Brilliant addictive reading.”

– Maggie, Goodreads, 5 stars

“THE DUKE REDEMPTION is well written, engaging, romantic, and very, very steamy. I totally enjoyed seeing the passion turn to love. Bea and Wick each brought something the other needed – he felt his worth and honor again, and she felt beautiful and desirable. They treated each other as equals, and I believe their future will continue to be filled with joy and passion.”
