Myth and marriage

Romance readers love a marriage of convenience, and an ancient Irish myth is the motivation for the wedding in Bride of a Wicked Scotsman by Samantha James. Lady Maura O'Donnell pledges to restore the fortunes of her family and her people by recovering the fabled Circle of Light, which was stolen two centuries before by a pirate known as the Black Scotsman. She'll do anything to get it back—even tricking the pirate's descendant, Alec McBride, Duke of Gleneden, into bed and then into saying "I do." The Irish lady travels with her groom to his home in Scotland, hoping to find the relic. Instead, she finds herself falling for the dashing Alec. Even while the duke curses himself for wedding a woman he's sure is after his money, he's still attracted to his lovely bride. As he comes to know Maura, Alec is no longer certain she's so mercenary—he's just certain that he'll do anything to bring their growing passion to fruition. A story of hot passion and cursed pasts, of tragic deaths and unexpected happiness, this is a historical romance to savor.
