Passion Destroys Marriage of Convenience in The Irish Rogue by Judith French
-- Baltimore, Maryland, 1820 --
To save her reputation and avoid her father's ill-will, heiress Annie Davis needs to catch a husband quickly--and she's willing to pay. So when a handsome stranger rescues her from a throng of street punks, she convinces him to exchange his name in marriage for the promise of her wealth.
Michael O'Ryan came to America to escape the war in Ireland and a hangman's noose. A marriage of convenience to the daughter of a prosperous Maryland plantation owner seems like a serendipitous chance to change his situation. Until his spirited bride unwittingly uncovers his dangerous past and the undiscovered passion in his heart.
Publisher's Note: No one brings unlikely strangers together, and sparks the past alive like Judith French. Fans of Elizabeth Keysian, Erica Ridley, Emilia Ferguson and Elliee Atkinson as well as readers of early American romance will enjoy The Irish Rogue.
"A heartwarming romance brimming over with marvelous characters who prove opposites attract and trouble can bring people together." ~Kathe Robin, Romantic Times
