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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The third in the MacIain saga is a powerful story filled with deceit, danger, and passion; everything that makes a page-turner. Set against the backdrop of England and America during the American Civil War, Ranney’s story explores different aspects of the war than usually portrayed. The idea of a Northern abolitionist living in the South piques readers’ curiosity, and Ranney doesn’t disappoint in giving her fans a memorable read.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “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.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A great swashbuckling read. The complex political issues of the time give the plot momentum and the characters much room for growth, and the prose is fluid and well-paced.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Kate Reading does a fine job with the accents, enabling the listener to discern the characters easily, especially the Scottish ones.”

About the Author

Karen Ranney wanted to be a writer from the time she was five years old and filled her Big Chief tablet with stories. Later years spent in Japan, Paris, and Italy further fueled her imagination. Now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she prefers to keep her adventures between the covers of her books.
