But one man who hasn’t changed a bit after his time on the continent is her betrothed’s boorish brother… Lieutenant Tristan Avery would like to pound some sense, or perhaps honor, into his older brother. Why the cad treats Phoebe so callously, Tristan can’t understand. But what he truly can’t understand is why he suddenly seems drawn to the chit as they’ve never been fond of each other. When the truth of Tristan's feelings for Phoebe become clear, his own honor is put to the test and all of his plans for the future are turned upside down.

Manolo the Latin lover has kissed goodbye to his last-unnamed-British housewife. Now he is in a prison cell in Palma, Mallorca, claiming to have been the top of the pop-into-bed favorite with more than 100 women holiday makers in the past three years. Some were German, some Scandinavian, but the great majority were British. And all were aged 40 or over, on holiday without their menfolk. In a good season, the handsome, 30 year old Spaniard reckoned to be able to woo and win them at the rate of five a week. The trouble was, according to police, that on his way out of their holiday hotel bedrooms, Manolo often stopped to take a little souvenir-like jewelry or a purseful of pesetas. He usually got away with it, because by that time the ladies were blissfully asleep. He is caught finally by a furious blonde, who finds his identity card has slipped out of his pocket onto the bedroom floor.

This is the first comprehensive and fully documented study of the Empress Matilda to be published in English. Much of the serious work on her life and historical importance has never been translated from German, and almost all has concentrated on the years of her struggle with Stephen for the English crown. This book examines her career as a whole, including the years as consort of the Emperor Henry V and as regent in Normandy for her son Henry II. It illustrates the problems of female succession in the early twelfth century, and gives a balanced assessment of Matilda's character and achievements in the context of her own times.
