About this ebook

An English Patriot… 
British general's daughter, Rachel de Lacy, is betrothed to Sir Dunstan Wells, the hero of Culloden Moor, a man determined to crush the highlanders forever. When she is kidnapped at an officer's ball by her fiancé's nemesis—a fierce raider known as the Glen Lyon—she discovers the outlaw is none other than the branded coward Gavin Carstares, Earl of Glenlyon.  

A Rebel Lord…  
Haunted by the savagery of war, Gavin intends to use Rachel de Lacy as a bargaining chip to gain freedom and passage to France for the widows and orphans he’s rescued from Sir Dunstan’s vengeful sword. 

A Price too High… 
As passion flames between captor and hostage, Rachel discovers a new meaning for the word courage, and Gavin is faced with an impossible choice. Can he return the woman he loves to his brutal enemy, even if that is the ransom he must pay to win his orphans their freedom?

2. ANGEL'S FALL (Adam and Juliet)

The Soulful Artist

I loved this book! Miraculously, an epic love blooms between the two protagonists, Gavin Glen Lyons (I fell in love with him too) and Rachel his counterpart. The realities of war are highlighted; the horror and the scars that mark a man not just his body, but his soul as well. You will question your own definition of what a true hero is. Really well written, strong characters and a forever love, what's not to love about this story!

A rare book, indeed! A wounded hero, a strong heroine, impossible choices to be made, unavoidable dangers to endure, and every page demanding to be turned! An absolute delight for those who love historical romance.
