Bestselling romance author Bertrtice Small begins a sexy historical series, the Border Chronicles, with this story of love, loss, and triumph over hard times.
Set in the borderlands between England and Scotland, A Dangerous Love tells the story of Adair Radcliffe, illegitimate daughter of King Edward by the countess of Stanton. Adair, a spirited beauty, is faced with loss at an early age when both her parents are murdered by Lancastrians. Later, she is betrothed to a young husband she refuses to acknowledge or bed; after his death, she achieves some measure of happiness with her second husband. Betrayed by her half sister, Adair finds herself a widow again with her family estate in ruins and is sold by kidnappers at the Michaelmas fair. The lucky bidder? Scottish laird Conal Bruce, who first sees her as a promising wench and housekeeper, then falls hard. He wants to marry her, but this time she's holding out for love. Small delivers a wonderful romance, replete with historical detail and those slow seductions her fans relish. Ginger Curwen
