With a heavy heart, spirited but low-born Susanna Guthrie agrees to honor the deathbed request of the wealthy young woman who rescued her from a life of poverty. Masquerading as her benefactress, Susanna travels to the Virginia colony to take the dying heiress’ place as head of the sprawling tobacco plantation Briarwood…and to “marry wisely.”

Once, she would have welcomed the attentions of handsome Adam Thornton. But now, consorting with a “hired hand” is unthinkable—though the raw, sensual power of the rugged plantation manager leaves Susanna breathless. Driven by a desire for vengeance, Adam is ruthlessly determined to win both Briarwood and its beautiful new mistress—only to be undone by a soul inflamed with passion…and a heart ennobled by love.

"Defiant Impostor is entertaining, evocative, and powerful. Miriam Minger creates moods and characters you will remember long after you close the book." - Romantic Times

“Miriam Minger is a master storyteller who illustrates the full gamut of emotions felt by her characters. Emotions so strong that you are pulled into the pages and into their lives.” – Inside Romance

DANGEROUS MASQUERADE COLLECTION - Enjoy three of award-winning author Miriam Minger's historical romances in one dangerously exciting boxed set: The Brigand Bride, The Temptress Bride, and The Impostor Bride! 


“Five stars . . . should be at the top of your shopping list! Miriam Minger is a fifty-carat jewel.” – Affaire de Coeur

THE BRIGAND BRIDE - When Maddie Fraser’s father was killed fighting for Bonnie Prince Charles, she swore to avenge his death. Hooded and disguised, she led a series of daring raids against the forces of the Crown—vowing to love no man until the English invaders were driven from her beloved Scottish Highlands.

Captain Garrett Marshall was entrusted with the capture of the mysterious brigand called “Black Jack.” But the azure-eyed beauty hidden beneath the bandit’s manly garb tested Garrett’s loyalty to his King. Inflamed by a desire he could not ignore, the handsome officer would wed his bewitching enemy to save her from the gallows. But first he’d have to quell her hatred…and conquer her heart.

**Romance Writers of America RITA Award finalist for Best Historical Romance**

THE TEMPTRESS BRIDE - Kassandra whirled to face the arrogant military man she’d hoped never to see again, remembering all too clearly his kisses that lingered like molten honey on her lips. To admit it was her innocence he’d stolen in a moment of blazing passion would ruin her father’s diplomatic career and forever destroy her reputation.

Stefan nearly shouted in triumph. He’d searched throughout Vienna for the beguiling tavern wench who had aroused him past endurance, and here she stood like a shimmering goddess...no tavern wench but a lady of the Imperial court. He must have her--he would have her!—if only to safeguard her honor by making her his wife.

THE IMPOSTOR BRIDE - With a heavy heart, spirited but low-born Susanna Guthrie agrees to honor the deathbed request of the wealthy young woman who rescued her from a life of poverty. Masquerading as her benefactress, Susanna travels to the Virginia colonies to take the dying heiress’ place as head of the sprawling tobacco plantation Briarwood…and to “marry wisely.”

Once, she would have welcomed the attentions of handsome Adam Thornton. But now, consorting with a “hired hand” is unthinkable—though the raw, sensual power of the rugged plantation manager leaves Susanna breathless. Driven by a desire for vengeance, Adam is ruthlessly determined to win both Briarwood and its beautiful new mistress—only to be undone by a soul inflamed with passion…and a heart ennobled by love.
