When an affair with a student leaves him jobless, shunned by friends, and ridiculed by his ex-wife, he retreats to his daughter Lucy's smallholding.

Tess schmiegt sich an ihren muskulösen Retter und genießt seine Nähe: Alexander Tempest, Viscount Weybourn, trägt sie durch die vereisten Straßen zum Arzt. Ein Zusammenstoß mit ihm hat ihr einen verstauchten Knöchel beschert. Doch zum Weihnachtfest beschert der adelige Herzensbrecher der schönen Bürgerlichen noch etwas anderes: eine Anstellung in seinem eleganten Stadthaus als Haushälterin - und verboten sinnliche Küsse unterm Mistelzweig!

"In this sequel to the popular Cooking with Fernet Branca, Gerald Samper is back on his Tuscan hilltop and busily musing on the absurdities of modern life. His entertaining asides - on everything from publishing to penile implants, celebrity sportswomen to Australian media moguls - and his eccentric recipes form the comic heart of this literary romp. Marta, Gerald's nemesis in Cooking with Fernet Branca, is back, along with her penchant for the eponymous potent liquor and her talent for shattering Gerald's evening idylls. But she's not alone: Amazing Disgrace touts a cavalcade of memorable characters, including a foul-mouthed, one-armed yachtswoman, and sees Gerald jettisoned from his Tuscan hideaway into the trendy haunts of his native London."--BOOK JACKET.

The daughters of a god find themselves having to meet an obligation they didn’t count on. They have been pledged to marry the Princes of Hell. Hell hath no fury like a goddess forced to marry a prince of the Underworld. The Kingdoms of Hell Saga is just starting. Imagine this, you’re the daughter of Alric, a god who quite unwisely lost a battle to the King of the Underworld. Now, the terms of agreement that your father has to yield to so that he isn’t banished forever is to give your hand in marriage to one of the sons of the Underworld. This is Gabriella’s fate. A bastard son of the King of the Underworld, Holden’s been made a Prince of the Underworld. He’s only interested in the hellhounds he’s charged with caring for.

His father has betrothed him to the daughter of Alric, the god who started the war between gods. As if that wasn’t bad enough, his hellhounds are dying. They are
