BRIDE OF A WICKED SCOTSMAN
With a hero who's not so much wicked as delicious, James merges the aura of an ancient legend into a wondrous love story. The magic is truly in her storytelling and the depth of emotion
and sensuality she brings to each
A long time ago, the ancient relic known as the Circle of Light brought prosperity to the Clan O'Donnell. Then it was stolen by the pirate McBride and hard times fell. It's up to Lady Maura O'Donnell to uphold her father's wish by reclaiming the circle and saving her clan.
When Alec McBride, the Duke of Gleneden, a descendant of the McBride arrives in town, Maura is determined to speak to him, but being compromised and having to wed the man was not her plan. Now she's caught in wedlock with her enemy, but is the sexy, charming, mysterious duke her rival for the relic, or could he become her partner and make all her dreams of love come true?
