If You Like Sydney Jane Baily Books, You’ll Love…

Sydney Jane Baily Synopses: Lord Despair by Sydney Jane Baily is the first book in the Beastly Lords series. Lord Simon Devere returns from the Burmese War, haunted by traumatic memories that blur the lines between reality and dreams. Trapped in his own mind, he struggles to accept his safety back in England. Meanwhile, Jenny Blackwood, facing financial challenges after her father’s death, takes on the role of a male bookkeeper to support her family.

As Jenny delves into her bookkeeping duties, she discovers a mysterious decline in the estate’s funds. Undeterred, she ventures into Lord Simon’s darkened room, unraveling a dangerous web of secrets. The greatest threat, however, may not be the peril they face together but Lord Despair himself.

An Improper Situation is book 1 in the Defiant Hearts series by Sydney Jane Baily. Reed Malloy travels over two thousand miles to a dusty Colorado town in search of Charlotte Sanborn. However, Charlotte, a fiercely independent woman, refuses to raise her orphan cousins, much to Reed’s disbelief. Despite Charlotte’s determination to avoid further heartache, a yearning for something more is awakened within her.

As one letter changes everything, Charlotte finds herself entering Reed’s world of Boston high society. However, hidden malice lurks in the mansions and ballrooms of Beacon Hill, and with passions ablaze, Reed and Charlotte must confront sinister forces and scorned women to escape an Improper Situation.

Clarity by Sydney Jane Baily is the first book in the Diamonds of the First Water series. Lady Clarity Diamond, a fun-loving earl’s daughter, is determined to find a husband among her suitors during the social season. However, her childhood friend, Lord Alex Hollidge, is a titled stick in the mud. Having shouldered responsibilities from a young age after being orphaned, Alex is focused on finding a suitable wife, but Clarity’s frivolity doesn’t fit the bill.

Amidst everyone advising them to stay apart and their own prior commitments, will the smoldering desire between Alex and Clarity be extinguished before it can blossom into love?

Last Dance in London is the first book in Sydney Jane Baily’s Rakes on the Run series. Jasper Ashton, the Earl of Marshfield, known for his rakish ways and commitment to staying single, finds his plans disrupted when Julia Sudbury, an impossibly desirable and clever woman, unexpectedly appears in his bedroom. Julia, adept at slipping into nobility’s private chambers, has a penchant for acquiring spare pieces of jewelry to help the city’s poor.

As Julia’s actions tarnish Jasper’s reputation and subject him to ruthless gossip, he decides to go on the run to escape the consequences. The tables turn, leaving the once confident rake to question who will ultimately tame whom in this unexpected romantic entanglement.
