“Schooling the Viscount is a charming, sexy romp through the English countryside. Readers will fall in love with the little town of Puddling-on-the-Wold. I did!” —Vanessa Kelly, USA Today bestselling author Welcome to Puddling‑on‑the‑Wold, where the sons and daughters of Victorian nobility come for a little rest, recuperation, and “rehab,” in this brand-new series of rebellious romance from Maggie Robinson. After a harrowing tour of duty abroad, Captain Lord Henry Challoner fought to keep his memories at bay with two of his preferred vices: liquor and ladies. But the gin did more harm than good—as did Henry’s romantic entanglements, since he was supposed to be finding a suitable bride. Next stop: The tiny village of Gloucestershire, where Henry can finally sober up without distraction or temptation. Or so he thinks… A simple country schoolteacher, Rachel Everett was never meant to cross paths with a gentleman such as Henry. What could such a worldly man ever see in her? As it turns out, everything. Beautiful, fiercely intelligent Rachel is Henry’s dream woman—and wife. Such a match would be scandalous for his family of course, and Rachel has no business meddling with a resident at the famed, rather draconian, Puddling Rehabilitation Foundation. All the better, for two lost souls with nothing to lose—and oh so very much to gain. Praise for Maggie Robinson’s Lady Anne’s Lover “Robinson never fails to provide plenty of brio, banter, and interpersonal heat…Fans of humorous historicals will enjoy this delightful romp.” —Publishers Weekly “A charming, fun Regency romp that combines an innovative, compelling plot with characters that jump off the page and a hot, captivating romance that will tug at heartstrings.” —Kirkus Reviews “Lively repartee and steamy sensuality, yet maintains the mystery to the very end.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

This is the story of generations of parents, Britain's richest and grandest, who believed that being miserable at school was necessary to make a good and successful citizen. Childish suffering was a price they accepted for the preservation of their class, and their entitlement. The children who were moulded by this misery and abuse went on - as they still do - to run Britain's public institutions and private companies. Confronting the truth of his own schooldays and the crimes he witnessed, Alex Renton has revealed a much bigger story. It is of a profound malaise in the British elite, shown up by tolerance of the abuse of its own children that amounts to collusion. This culture and its traditions, and the hypocrisy, cronyism and conspiracy that underpin them, are key to any explanation of the scandals over sexual abuse, violence and cover-up in child care institutions that are now shocking the nation. As Renton shows, complicity in this is the bleak secret at the heart of today's British elite.

A kiss is just a kiss ... or is it? Having just inherited a viscountcy, George Bennett-Jones knows he must find a bride, preferably the daughter of an aristocrat; his mistress insists on it. Through a series of lessons, she instructs George on the finer points of meeting and pleasing a woman. When George spies Lady Elizabeth Carlington dancing with the Earl of Trenton, it's love at first sight. But the auburn-haired beauty is quite sure the earl will offer for her hand, and she has every intention of accepting; even if his kiss has left her feeling as if she was kissed by her best friend's dog! When Elizabeth mentions the unfortunate kiss during the ball's supper, George implies there is an art to kissing, innocently offering to replace her poor first impression with a proper kiss. Intrigued, and unaware that George is a viscount and a secret patron of her charity, Elizabeth accepts his offer at the next ball. George is more than happy to accommodate her. His kiss has the daughter of a marquess so stunned, so amazed and so aroused, she requests that he demonstrate the pleasures that can be had in a marriage bed. Knowing he has only one night to court the woman who has captured his heart, George sets out to prove himself while promising he will leave her virtue intact. Will the evening of pleasure he has planned for Elizabeth convince her to accept his hand in marriage? Or simply leave her with a vivid memory of what she will be missing should she accept the earl's marriage proposal? The lessons of a mistress prove invaluable in The Kiss of a Viscount .
