Will Fleeing the Scottish Highlands Only Leave Her in More Danger? Lady Rowena Kinnaird may be the heiress to a Highland earldom, but she’s never felt good enough–not for her father, not for the man she thought she’d marry, not for God. But after a shocking attack, she’s willing to be forever an outcast if it means escaping those threatening her life. Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has never been one to shy away from manor-born ladies, yet the last thing he needs is the distraction of the newly introduced Lady Rowena. He has enough on his plate having recently come into possession of a rare treasure for which many would kill, yet those around him seem intent on pairing him with this desperate but beguiling girl. Rowena is reluctant to marry this notorious flirt. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in some kind of questionable business with a stolen treasure, she fears she’ll end up in more danger than she fled.
Meet the Author:
Roseanna M. White pens her novels beneath her Betsy Ross flag, with her Jane Austen action figure watching over her. When not writing fiction, she’s homeschooling her two children, editing and designing, and pretending her house will clean itself. Roseanna is the author of nine novels, ranging from biblical fiction to American-set romances to her new British series. Roseanna lives with her family in West Virginia.
This is the first novel by Roseanna M. White that I have read but let me tell you I was not disappointed. I had a hard time trying to put this novel down after I finished the first chapter. Although, this is the second book in this series I never felt as if I was missing anything. In fact this novel made me want to go back and read the first book. This novel is the perfect blend of truth, romance, mystery and suspense. The truth theme in this book reminds us that God is sovereign and God is good; that He is with us even in the times that seem dark, and He is working things together for our good. The characters were all fantastic and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I whole heartedly recommend this book to all my fellow book lovers out there.
I received this book free from the publisher through the Bethany House bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
