Overview

New York Times bestselling author Karen Ranney returns with the third heart-stirring novel in her latest series, a tale of deceit, desperate measures, and delirious desire

Rose MacIain is a beautiful woman with a secret. Desperate and at her wits' end, she crafts a fake identity for herself, one that Duncan MacIain will be unable to resist. But she doesn't realize that posing as the widow of the handsome Scotsman's cousin is more dangerous than she knew. And when a simmering attraction rises up between them, she begins to regret the whole charade.

Duncan is determined to resist the tempting Rose, no matter how much he admires her arresting beauty and headstrong spirit. When he agrees to accompany her on her quest, their desire for each other only burns hotter. The journey tests his resolve as their close quarters fuel the fire that crackles between them.

When the truth comes to light, these two stubborn people must put away their pride and along the way discover that their dreams of love are all they need.

Ranney concludes her American Civil War trilogy (after Scotsman in My Dreams) with the Scottish branch of the MacIains family inserting itself into the Confederate cause in order to support Rose, who they think is the wife of their American cousin, Bruce MacIain. In actuality, Rose is Bruces New Yorkraised, abolition-minded sister-in-law. She dodges the Charleston blockade and travels to Glasgow in order to offer mill owner Duncan MacIain the opportunity to purchase 1,000 bales of South Carolina cotton with gold. Despite having been abused for helping several slaves escape, Rose is determined to go back in order to rescue her sister, her niece, and the remaining slaves from starvation. Duncan is reluctant to allow Rose to place herself in danger, but he recognizes that her determination will not allow her to stay in Scotland or even in Nassau, where their relationship deepens as the danger increases. Ranney sensitively writes about a sad and ugly period of American history, and her thoughtful, multidimensional depiction of the enslaved characters avoids stereotypes and whitewashing the past. (Feb.)
