Il segreto dell’amore: (Ribelli e Libertini, volume 3)

Boxwood Manor Books

Quando lady Isabella Trevarre posò per la prima volta lo sguardo su Gabriel St. Briac, disse alla sua migliore amica: “Quello è l’uomo che sposerò!” Ora adulta, Izzie ha scambiato i propri sogni di ragazza con la vita indipendente di un’artista, ma non ha mai davvero dimenticato l’affascinante francese che aveva conquistato il suo giovane cuore. Quando questi fa la sua ricomparsa in Cornovaglia, tra i due germoglia il seme del desiderio…

Mentre l’esercito di Napoleone saccheggia preziose opere d’arte per tutta l’Europa, l’inestimabile dipinto di Leonardo da Vinci appartenente a Gabriel St. Briac svanisce dal suo nascondiglio. Deciso a recuperare il prezioso cimelio di famiglia, Gabriel fa rotta verso il caos della Francia in guerra… e si ritrova con Izzie sulla sua nave. Pur temendo per la sicurezza della giovane, le concede di assisterlo nella sua missione. Ma Izzie cova un segreto oscuro… un segreto che potrebbe distruggere la fragile fiducia che intercorre tra loro. Quando il pericolo li metterà alla prova, riusciranno queste due anime solitarie a trovare il coraggio di rischiare tutto per amore?

From New York TimesBestselling author Cynthia Wright comes a thrilling new romance of 16th century Scotland!

Darkly handsome Ciaran MacLeod revels in his life as a Highland warrior. He spends his days training with his comrades at Duntulm Castle on the far cliffs of the Isle of Skye, and taking his pick of smitten lasses.

However, Ciaran harbors a secret, passed down from his dead mother, that has caused him to become deeply suspicious of love. He’s grateful he doesn’t have to worry about taking a wife, for the castle is efficiently run by Violette, a plain young Frenchwoman who covers her head with a gable hood and reveals nothing of her own past.

Violete Pasquiére fled to Scotland to escape a vengeful stepfather. She feels safe on the remote Isle of Skye, disguised in drab clothing and and tending to these strong clan MacLeod men who would be lost without her care. The potent attraction Violette feels for Ciaran MacLeod is just one more secret she keeps.

But a threat to Duntulm Castle changes everything, and Ciaran’s elders propose that he marry Judith MacRae to bring additional lands and warriors to the clan. Rebelling against the efforts to control him, Ciaran proposes to Violette instead, setting in motion a passionate series of events that shake not only their future, but challenge their carefully guarded hearts...

“Cynthia Wright magically entwines passion and history!” ~ RT Book Reviews


~ Nathan Raveneau, son of Andre & Devon (Silver Storm) is known as "The Scapegrace" in Regency London for his rakish exploits and devastating good looks. He is also a sea captain with an estate on Barbados. To gain land near his enemy, Xavier Crowe, Raveneau agrees to act as protector to headstrong Adrienne Beauvisage - and keep her chaste until her 21st birthday.

Adrienne is both outraged and intrigued by the man who calls himself Nathan Essex. She knows little of the threats that lurk at the English castle of eccentric Lady Thomasina Harms... or of the daring that Raveneau, in his guise as Nathan Essex, must employ to keep her out of harm's way.

As the powerful attraction between them builds, Nathan is forced to abduct an unwilling Adrienne, boldly spiriting her away to his ship. In a rousing adventure that carries them from Regency England across the sea to magical Barbados, Nathan and Adrienne struggle against a compelling and passionate love while caught in a growing web of danger.
