In the fifth Royal Spyness Mystery, Lady Georgiana Rannoch discovers that being a minor royal has its privileges when she visits the glamorous—and dangerous—French Riviera… London, 1933. Her Majesty the Queen is sending Georgie off to Nice with a secret assignment—to recover her priceless, stolen snuff box from the disreputable Sir Toby Groper. Her Majesty’s trust is an honor, but an even greater honor is bestowed upon Georgie in Nice when none other than Coco Chanel asks her to model the latest fashions. Unfortunately, things go disastrously wrong on the catwalk and before Georgie can snatch the snuff box, someone’s life is snuffed out in a very dastardly way. With a murderer on the loose—and Georgie's beau Darcy seen in the company of another woman—how’s a girl to find any time to go to the casino?

He can't help but imagine teaching her the wicked ways of passion...and how her innocence might soothe his torment. When his dark past is inevitably revealed, though, the truth might destroy them both. In the season of love and goodwill, does he dare hope for a miracle?
At Spicetopia, naughty and nice can be two sides of the same coin. Especially during the holidays. Micah Greene didn't know what to expect when he was asked to officiate a wedding at a theme park catering to "grown-ups." He'd worked so hard to keep himself on the straight and narrow after he saw what promiscuity and debauchery had done to his brothers. He would somehow resist the seductress event planner he had to work with...no matter how hard he was...ahem...IT was. Surely he could control his naughty thoughts around her. It was just one week, right? Natalie Roux joined the Spicetopia staff as the official event planner, and her first big event was the owner’s wedding. She wanted to make a good first impression, but the minister they brought in to officiate the ceremony was a sugarplum she wouldn’t mind sinking her teeth into. She needed to keep her hands (and mouth) to herself if she was going to pull off the holiday wedding of the century! She could be nice and not let herself get into trouble. It was just one week...right? Naughty & Nice is Book 4 in the Spicetopia series.
