A Marriage of Convenience...

Gaunt and wearing an eye patch, Major Ian Cameron returns to India after being freed from horrendous captivity in Central Asia. Thoughts of his beautiful fiancée helped him survive his imprisonment, but much can happen when a man has supposedly been dead for two years, and his return brings him face to face with how much he has lost.

An unexpected inheritance gives him the opportunity to return home to Scotland and begin a new life. First, though, he must fulfill the dying wish of the Russian officer who had shared his captivity by delivering the colonel's journal to his niece, Larissa Alexandrovna Karelian.

The daughter of tempestuous Russian aristocrats, Laura Stephenson loved her quiet English stepfather and was happy to follow him to India as companion and hostess. His death leaves her adrift--until a handsome, haunted Scot appears to deliver her uncle's journal.

Startled to find a grown woman rather than a little girl, Ian quickly realizes that Laura is uniquely qualified to be his wife in an unconventional marriage. She accepts his offer and together they begin the long journey home to Britain with a side trip to the mountains to retrieve the belongings her uncle left with a friendly maharajah. In the process, they are swept into an adventure that threatens the future of India, and brings them together with a love and passion that is more than either of them had dared dream of.

Meet the Author

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. Her entire romance writing career is an accidental byproduct of buying a computer for other purposes.

Her novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy. Winner of numerous writing awards, including two RITAs and two Romantic Times Career Achievement awards, she had many books listed among the top romances of the year by Library Journal and Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association. She also writes young adult historical fantasy as M. J. Putney.

Her favorite reading is great stories, but in a pinch she’ll settle for the backs of cereal boxes. She’s delighted that e-publishing can now make available books that have been out of print.

Great end to a good trilogy. Would have liked to have seen more of the characters from the other novels but I would still recommend this for fans of the genre.

After reading the first two in this series and loving the first one and thinking the second one was just way too much action/danger, I was glad to see this book was great! I loved the characters and the story. Great book!

I think this is a book worth reading.It was a romance that was different from any i´ve ever read before because the characters relathionship is based on friendship at the begining and its not really sexual.They marry out of convinience and the books got a quirk to it that makes it different from others.
