His hostage...

In 1758 the Pennsylvania frontier is wild, primitive and dangerous, where safety
often lies at the end of a gun. Mara Dupre's life crumbles when a French and
Indian war party attacks her cabin, kills her husband, and takes her captive.
Marching through the wilderness strengthens her resolve to flee, but she doesn't
count on her captor teaching her the meaning of courage and the tempting call of

Her destiny...

French lieutenant Jacques Corbeau's desire for his captive threatens what little
honor he has left. But when Mara desperately offers herself to him in exchange for
her freedom, he finds the strength to refuse and reclaims his lost self-respect. As
the shadows of his past catch up to him, Jacques realizes that Mara, despite the
odds, is the one true key to reclaiming his soul and banishing his past misdeeds forever.

Editorial Reviews

Romantic Times - Deborah Brent
4 ½ stars and Top Pick "...their journey quickly becomes more than just escape. It is a time of discovery, love, healing, growth, forgiveness and sacrifice for the greater good. Though this is not a favorite time period of mine, I was captivated and read Ms McLaughlin's tale in one sitting. The characters are believable and well drawn, the research is impeccable and the description of the pristine wilderness breathtaking."
Romance Reviews Today - Jani Brooks
"Reminiscent of THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS but with an even more personal touch, ROGUE'S HOSTAGE is a must read book for lovers of adventure and romance."
Scribes World - Melissa Curran
4 1/2 Stars! "A wonderful story. It was obviously well researched as well. I fell in love with the characters and struggled along with them as they sought to understand their feelings for each other. I would highly recommend picking this book up. You won't regret it."
