“A stimulating and emotionally driven romance of mistrust, anger, pain and we see the healing power of love and redemption. A SEXY PAGE TURNER!!” —Addicted to Romance

A Highlander is always worth waiting for . . .

Scottish Highlands, 1329. Sir James McKenna, second son of the powerful McKenna Chief, knows he has found his destiny when he falls in love with sweet Lady Davina Armstrong, niece of the Armstrong Chief. Orphaned in childhood, Davina has always felt like an outsider, and with James finally feels that she belongs. But their plans for a happy future are shattered after a brutal attack by a band of rogues. Horrified, Davina's overprotective family quickly shelters her from everyone—including James . . .

Five years later, James is a changed man. His fighting skills sharpened to perfection, he is hardened by the war and destruction he's endured as a Scottish knight—and by the loss of Davina. Weary, he returns home—and is shocked to find Davina there. Is it too late for them to start anew, or will the past dare to lay claim to their future once more?

From Regency London to the wilds of Scotland, the bestselling author spins a tempestuous tale of secrets, surprises, and breathtaking passion.

She ran from a broken heart . . .

A pillar of decorum and decency, Harriet Sainthill suddenly finds herself the object of scandal when her cad of a fiancé jilts her. Ever practical, she accepts a position as a governess to a wealthy Scottish merchant, determined to escape London and the gossip of the ton. Her hopes for a quiet new life are dashed when she arrives at the dark, desolate castle in the wilds of Scotland and meets her mysterious new employer—a darkly handsome man Harriet finds both intimidating and intriguing . . .

. . . Straight into the arms of love

Powerful, implacable and infuriatingly secretive, “Mr. Wainwright” is no Scottish merchant, but rather a runaway English lord. Once a rake who savored the indolent life of a reckless nobleman, Nathaniel Bennett must now protect three orphaned children and his own legacy from a conniving relative. And while the distraction of a sharp-tongued governess is the last thing he needs, he can think of little else but sweeping her into his arms . . . and off to his bed.

As danger and deceit ally them in a perilous adventure, Harriet will soon uncover Nathaniel's deepest secrets—and her own deepest desires.

“The sensuously detailed love scenes, undercurrent of danger and polished writing . . . will draw fans of Amanda Quick and Nicole Jordan.” —Booklist on To Protect An Heiress
