SHE THOUGHT HE WAS A RECKLESS ROGUE
When widowed Elizabeth, Countess of Ravenwold, is finally freed from her drunken husband’s abuse, she sings a song of praise, only to realize Lord Creighton has eavesdropped and overheard her. The last man on earth she wants to see again is the arrogant ladies’ man from Prince Charles’s entourage. Then the intrigue of a dying monarchy forces the two to marry and return to England to help Prince Kames escape to insure the Stuart Dynasty.
A love born upon the anvil of God is forged amid rebellion, danger, sickness, and pain.
Adventure, accurate history, humor, romance, and redemption make this a brisk, engrossing read.
