THE SEDUCTION OF MISS AMELIA BELL
Quinn captures the aura of the Highlands and its people as well. Her portrayal of the Scots and English’s conflict and contentious history is so well told that readers will feel they are a part of the events. Honorable, smart, dedicated characters fill the pages of this memorable tale as much as the sexual tension and nonstop action.
Edmund MacGregor loves Scotland and will do anything to protect it from being ruled by England. In an attempt to stop the passage of a dire law in Parliament, Edmund plans to kidnap Amelia Bell, whose father and betrothed’s signatures are required to pass it. Amelia is only interested in meeting her true love and not in forming political alliances. But both come to pass when Edmund abducts her. Their unexpected passion completely changes their lives — but will it change Edmund’s allegiances? (FOREVER, Apr., 416 pp., $8.00)
