A beautiful castaway finds safety in the arms of a Scottish Highlander in this historical romance by the New York Times bestselling author.
Scotland, 1480. Once, Arianna Murray Lucette believed she'd met the man she could always rely on. But when her husband brought her home to France, she discovered how wrong she was. Now she is fleeing for her life, and when dangerous enemies attack a ship bound for her only refuge, she believes all hope is lost. Then she awakens on Scotland's shore to a pair of the most entrancing blue eyes she has ever seen.
When Sir Brian MacFingal first spots the sun-streaked beauty on the beach, he mistakes her for dead. Soon, however, he discovers a woman full of life and vitality. But though he knows he is fit to defend her life—even at risk of losing his own—he must ask himself whether a raw warrior such as he could ever be worthy of her love.
Arianna Murray left Scotland to marry a Frenchman in what seemed to be an advantageous match. Then he revealed that his supposed mistress was his first wife and their two young sons are his heirs. When he dies, Arianna flees France with the boys, dodging the bigamist's brother, who wants to kill the children and gain the family fortune. Returning to Scotland, she accepts Sir Brian MacFingal's offer to help, and soon they fall in love. Howell is a master at painting the Highlands in its stark beauty, and the race to safety is exhilarating. The love scenes between Brian and Arianna are both passionate and tender as Brian helps her recover from her husband's abuse. Fans will enjoy cameos from Fiona and Ewan (Highland Warrior) and Jolene and Sigimor (Highland Conqueror) as they help Arianna reach safety, and look forward to the next Murray historical.
You can't go wrong with one of Howell's books for a historical romance.
