When Katherine Welles saves the life of a highwayman, she realizes he may be the only avenue of escape from a betrothal to her villainous neighbor. But traveling under the protection of a dashing outlaw--who won't ask directions--is anything but safe. Especially when his searing hot kisses awaken a yearning for something Katherine never knew she wanted.
Nicholas Montford, the exiled Earl of Ashton, returns to England determined to reclaim his family lands. As a highwayman called the Raven, he takes revenge upon the Puritans who thrived while his family suffered. But when he kidnaps heiress Katherine Welles, thoughts of revenge take second place to kissing her soft lips and teasing the mistrust from her eyes. Can he find redemption in the arms of the woman he plans to betray?
Good love story!
This story could have had a little more intrigue in the plot. I found myself putting it down and not hurrying to pick it back up, but I did finish it finally. But it was a nice love story.
A great read!
Tired of books with defiant heroines
I loved the plot line I had read before downloading this book..however I'm deeply disappointed in the mentality of the heroine..I understand the story takes place in the time of the puritans yet I think not all women would have been so oblivious to a man's affection..for once, I would like the leading lady to actually be interested in the main guy rather than have a cold woman courted by a man who deserves better
