The Worth Saga Box Set 1: In the West This is the first half of Courtney Milan’s Worth Saga—the half set in the West. Five books and novellas, plus one short story, together comprising 300,000 words. Once Upon a Marquess The last man Judith Worth wants to see again is Christian Trent, the Marquess of Ashford—the man who spent summers at her family home, who kissed her one magical night…and then heartlessly destroyed her family. But when a tricky business matter arises, he’s the only one she can ask for help… Her Every Wish Daisy’s father is dead, her mother is in ill health, and her available funds have dwindled to a memory. When the local parish announces a Christmas charity bequest to help young people start a trade, it’s her last chance. When her old sweetheart offers to help her win, she’s desperate enough to risk the one thing she hasn’t yet lost: her heart. Bank Notes Theresa Worth tries to be a lady, with little success. After the Wedding Camilla Worth has always dreamed of getting married, but a marriage where a pistol substitutes for "I do" is not the relationship she hoped for. Her unwilling groom insists they need to seek an annulment… and Camilla agrees. At first. But as she gets to know Adrian Hunter, she starts hoping for more… The Pursuit Of… The first time Henry and John meet at the Battle of Yorktown, they try to kill each other. The second time they meet? Henry offers to accompany John on a five-hundred mile journey for reasons that could best be described as a transparent pack of lies. But somewhere on the long road, they find a truth larger than the two of them… Mrs. Martin’s Incomparable Adventure Mrs. Bertrice Martin—a widow, some seventy-three years young—has kept her youthful-ish appearance with the most powerful of home remedies: daily doses of spite, regular baths in man-tears, and refusing to give so much as a single damn about her Terrible Nephew. All she needs is a little push—in the form of the sixty-nine year old Miss Violetta Beauchamps, and before she knows it, they’re planning a little mayhem…

The only thing more inconvenient than Camilla’s marriage at gunpoint is falling in love with her unwilling groom... Adrian Hunter, the son of a duke’s daughter and a black abolitionist, is determined to do whatever his family needs—even posing as a valet to gather information. But his mission spirals out of control when he’s accused of dastardly intentions and is forced to marry a woman he’s barely had time to flirt with. Camilla Worth has always dreamed of getting married, but a marriage where a pistol substitutes for “I do” is not the relationship she hoped for. Her unwilling groom insists they need to seek an annulment, and she’s not cruel enough to ruin a man’s life just because she yearns for one person to care about her. As Camilla and Adrian work to prove their marriage wasn’t consensual, they become first allies, then friends. But the closer they grow, the more Camilla’s heart aches. If they consummate the marriage, he’ll be stuck with her forever. The only way to show that she cares is to make sure he can walk away for good… After the Wedding is the second full-length book in the Worth Saga. It is preceded by Once upon a Marquess, the first full-length book. The series books stand alone, but those who wish to read in order may want to start there. Also available in the series are Her Every Wish, a side-novella, and The Pursuit Of..., which is something of a prequel.

Potomac Turning is the story of four young individuals who discover themselves as they mature from the shared childhood of three of them in San Antonio, Texas, and as the fourth joins during their university days in Washington DC. These two men and two women, who come from different social and racial backgrounds, find their lives to become forever linked until the present day. Two other young individuals mould into the story as it progresses to Calcutta in the last phase. There are overtures even to Latin America. There is sexual discovery and experimentation as well as unrequited love. Descriptions of a Catholic school in Texas are poignant and reminiscent of possibilities. Georgetown in Washington DC, which serves as the backdrop as the students mature to young adults, is described with intimacy and familiarity. The passages about Calcutta, where the story moves rapidly towards finality, are extremely well-written and convey the flavor of that city and its people and the times. This is a highly recommended read for lovers of romance in exotic venues (Laurent Oliver, reviewer, Washington DC).
