Leigh D’Ansey believes in the power of love. In her sexy Contemporary and Historical romantic fiction, Leigh creates emotional stories with heroes and heroines who are authentic, passionate and flawed. 

“I love Leigh D’ansey’s lively style of writing. She has created a delightful novel with strong characters. The dialogue and vivid descriptions race off the page, telling the story, pulling the reader into the world of these times, edging ever closer to a very satisfactory ending. A grand read and I highly recommend it.” – Deryn Pittar – five star review.

“Unputdownable.  Loved it, all the characters truly come to life, some of them likeable, some not so much, all believable.  Austen with steamy bits. A great read. Can’t wait for book 3.” – Victoria Mousley

“Supporting – or thwarting – the rocky path to true love is a wonderful cast of secondary characters who all add richness and detail to the story. The tension builds, and just as this reader was in despair that the star-crossed lovers would never find their happy-ever-after, the clever author provided an ending well worth waiting for.  Highly recommended as a sexy read.” – Cherie le Clare

Hardened by the ravages of war, Northbridge seeks a wife who will provide him with an heir but make no demands on his emotions. The scandalously experienced Vanessa, neither clinging nor innocent, seems the perfect choice. But Northbridge isn’t prepared for her reluctance to accept him, nor his own fierce reaction to her beauty. To fulfil his desires, he is prepared to be ruthless, but can he bend Vanessa to his will? Or has the Duke met his match?!

Finding his hot new colleague sprawled half-naked across his desk on a hot summer’s night when all he craves is peace and solitude is not something he bargained for.

But Nathan and Kate are irresistibly drawn to each other. Can they mend old wounds? Can they overcome the barriers that keep them apart, learn to trust each other, and forge a whole new relationship?
