Jo Beverley Synopses: In The Demon’s Bride by Jo Beverley, Rachel Proudfoot has enough trouble resisting the temptation of rakish Lord Morden without supernatural intervention. When she plays the traditional role of the Demon’s Bride at a Walpurgis Night festival, however, a mighty earth spirit attempts to unite them in passion in order to return to the world.

Dare to Kiss is a standalone novella by Jo Beverley. In 1765 a desperate mother accepts shelter with a stranger for herself and her children, but at what cost? England in the Georgian age was not kind to the poor. When Lily Gifford finds herself homeless in the countryside on a bitter November evening has no choice but to accept shelter from a passing stranger. But when she and her children arrive at Brooks Hall, the house is cold and neglected, and their host abandons them to his handful of resentful servants. When Lily learns Sir Benjamin Brook’s secret, she sees hope for herself and her family, if only she dare risk all to grasp it. The novella is connected to the author’s Malloren series.
