Searching for a ring finding a family!
Penniless Mary Rennie knows she's lucky to have a home with relatives in Edinburgh, but she does crave more excitement in her life. So when her cousin's ring is lost in one of several fruitcakes heading around the country as gifts, Mary seizes the chance for adventure.
When widowed captain Ross Rennie and his son meet Mary in a coaching inn, they take her under their wing. After years of battling Napoleon, Ross's soul is war weary, but Mary's warmth and humor touch him deep inside. Soon, he's in the most heart-stopping situation of his lifeconsidering a wedding-ring quest of his own!

About the Author
I started writing Regencies because of interest in the Napoleonic Wars. I like writing about warfare at sea and ordinary people of the British Isles, rather than lords and ladies. In my spare time I like to read British crime fiction and history, particularly the U.S. Indian Wars. I currently live in Utah. I'm a former park ranger, and double Rita Award and Spur Award winner. I have five interesting children and four grands. Favorite authors include Robert Crais and Richard Woodman.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Love the way these characters develop, both well drawn. War's impact on their lives and their very real reactions to events help build the reader's belief in their romance and pull for them both. Love the other books in Carla's Harlequin series from this period, like Marrying the Royal Marine.
