A Woman With A Secret

An Unlikely Love
Fate designs an improbable match, and a battle of wills ensues. As Amalie struggles to protect her identity, Thayne finds himself fighting for an unexpected love--and a passion neither can refuse. . .
"Sizzling sexual tension and great repartee."--Romantic Times on Knight Everlasting
"Filled with magic and a love so deep it takes my breath away." --Romance Reader at Heart on Once Upon a Knight
Amalie Ellincourt, an earl's daughter, is deep in denial about the reality of life for women in 1689, but she gets a rude awakening in this haphazard romance. Amalie flees London to escape an unpleasant betrothal, only to trip and fall right into a Scottish feud. Thayne MacGowan is trying to save a pregnant woman from her abusive husband; when she dies giving birth, he kidnaps Amalie, who poses as his wife and the mother of the child. Completely na ve, Amalie has no idea that masquerading as Thayne's wife means she'd actually be married to him under Scottish law. She may be beautiful, but her na vet gets tiresome pretty quickly, as does the frequency with which men threaten to rape and beat her. It's clear why she would fall in love with a chivalrous man like Thayne, but not why he would care for a spoiled young woman who fights him every step of the way.
A Perfect Read
Truly a real highland story. I would read it again, just amazing.
