A Brit on the Side (Castle Calder Book 1) (paid link)
How do you tell your best friend you had the hottest hook-up of your life with her older brother? Short answer? You don’t.
At least that’s my method of (not) dealing with the awkward. Until my bestie invites me to spend the summer in England working at her family’s castle-turned-hotel – where I’m living within kissing distance of her older brother for the entire summer.
Unfortunately Jasper St Julien is as smart and sexy as I remember. And our nights together? Way hotter. Our tryst two years ago didn’t feel like much of a secret. But as Jasper and I grow closer, our “fling” begins feeling more like the kind of thing I’d gush about to my best friend. If I hadn’t been lying to her all along.

But just as escape is within reach, her parents and twelve siblings fall under a strange sleeping sickness, and no one can find a cure.
In the space of a single night, Ekata inherits the title of duke, her brother’s captivating warrior bride, and ever-encroaching challengers from without—and within—her ministry.
