Some like it dangerous . . .
Highland beauty Catriona Kincaid cares nothing for propriety—or even her own safety—when she storms the grounds of Newgate Prison. Determined to return to Scotland and restore her clan's honor, she seeks the help of Sir Simon Wescott, a disgraced nobleman and notorious rogue. She is prepared to offer him both wealth and freedom, but she never dreams the wicked rake will be bold enough to demand a far more sensual prize.
Some like it seductive . . .
Simon is shocked to discover the tomboy he met long ago has blossomed into a headstrong temptress. Although he's sworn off his dreams of becoming a hero, he can't resist playing knight errant to Catriona's damsel in distress. Both adventure and peril await them at her Highland home, where they will risk their lives to vanquish her enemies . . . and risk their hearts to discover a passion beyond their wildest dreams.
In veteran author Medeiros's wickedly clever latest, set in 1805, Catriona Kincaid is a lovely Scotswoman exiled in England after her parents' deaths for "the Scottish Cause." When her uncle tries to marry her off to protect her from further persecution by the British, she talks roguish Sir Simon Wescott into a devil's deal: marry her and take half her copious dowry in exchange for guiding her to Scotland to find her brother, Connor. Simon accepts, under the stipulation that he can take her, too. Love soon strikes them, but his determined avoidance of heroics and her desire to lead her kinsmen against the English lead to serious complications. Wit, charm and bravery abound as the two try to find their way back to one another. (July)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
