As Connie Brockway’s spellbinding Highland trilogy continues, a man with sin in his smile falls for a femme fatale who might be an angel of mercy . . . or death.
Restless, daring, proud, they are the Merricks: Raine, the second son, the reckless one; Ashton, his older brother, the passionate one; and Fia, their sister, the ravishing one. Born of bad blood, they were raised in the Scottish Highlands on lands that belonged to their mother’s kin, the McClairens--until their English father seized the ancestral stronghold for his own. Yet all are destined to find loves as wild and glorious as the isle they call home.
Even for a scoundrel as brash as Raine Merrick, his fate seems impossibly cruel: trapped in a French prison until his father deigns to pay the ransom. After years of waiting, a miracle finally arrives in the form of a striking mystery woman who releases him one moment--and betrays him the next. At least Raine is free to return to McClairen’s Isle and claim its secret treasure. But strange surprises await in the Highlands, where the beautiful traitor is masquerading as an honored guest . . . and tempting Raine with all the lust in his wicked soul.
Connie Brockway’s novel of unexpected love begins with a series of letters between a world-weary adventurer and the beautiful suffragette whose passion calls him home.
“Dear Mr. Thorne, For the next five years, I will profitably manage this estate. I will deliver to you an allowance and I will prove that women are just as capable as men.” Lillian Bede is shocked when she is tapped to run the affairs of an exquisite country manor. But she accepts the challenge, taking the opportunity to put her politics into practice. There’s only one snag: Lily’s ward, the infuriating, incorrigible globe-trotter Avery Thorne.
“My Dear Miss Bede, Forgive me if I fail to shudder. Pray, do whatever you bloody well want, can, or must.” Avery’s inheritance is on hiatus after his uncle dies--and his childhood home is in the hands of some domineering usurper. But when he finally returns, Avery finds that his antagonist is not at all what he expected. In fact, Lily Bede is stunning, exotic, provocative--and impossible to resist.

In Connie Brockway’s mesmerizing tale of romance and adventure, a notorious treasure hunter realizes that the greatest jewel of all is the woman before his eyes.
Kidnapped, drugged, and about to be sold to the highest bidder, Desdemona Carlisle is having a hell of a time maintaining her English pride. Then she sees the man in black, galloping through the Egyptian desert on a pure white steed. Desdemona could not have conjured a more dashing savior in her wildest fantasies. But an unlikelier hero would be impossible to find: Harry Braxton is a rogue, a scoundrel, and a born opportunist--who has already broken Desdemona’s heart once before.
As brilliant as she is beautiful, Desdemona still hasn’t learned how to stay out of trouble--which suits Harry just fine. Running from a painful past, and rumored to be involved in nefarious endeavors, Harry will never be a proper match for Desdemona. But when she catches the eye of his cousin, the irritatingly honorable Lord Blake Ravenscroft, Harry vows to claim his one true desire, once and for all.

Still, she swore she’d make it out someday…
Twenty years later, she’s on the cusp of real stardom. She’s about to leave for New York to be crowned queen of daytime TV when Fawn Creek asks her to be grand marshal of the town’s sesquicentennial.
