ONE NIGHT IN SCOTLAND
Genre: Historical Romance, Scotland
Known for her quick-moving, humorous and poignant stories, Hawkins begins the Hurst Amulet series with a keeper. Readers will be delighted by the perfect pacing, the humorous dialogue and the sizzling sensual romance.
Highly respected Egyptologist Michael Hurst is being held captive by an Egyptian. The ransom: an ancient artifact believed to have been stolen generations ago. With her other brother gone, the very “modern” Mary Hurst must retrieve the artifact from Michael’s friend Angus Hay, Earl of Errol, who is examining it.
Mary is met with suspicion and subterfuge when she arrives at the castle Angus calls home and is essentially held prisoner in a gilded suite until his arrival. As her determination, creativity and persona impress Angus, she is drawn to him despite his arrogance and stubbornness. Sparks fly. The tumultuous climax proves to be the greatest surprise and gift to them both. (POCKET STAR, Dec., 340 pp., $7.99)
