A man in the shadows
Some say he is dangerous. Others say he is mad. None of them knows the truth about Marshall Ross, the Devil of Ambrose. He shuns proper society, sworn to let no one discover his terrible secret. Including the beautiful woman he has chosen to be his wife.
A fallen woman
Only desperation could bring Davina McLaren to the legendary Edinburgh castle to become the bride of a man she has never met. Plagued by scandal, left with no choices, she has made her bargain with the devil. And now she must share his bed.
A fire unlike any they’ve ever known
From the moment they meet, Davina and Marshall are rocked by an unexpected desire that leaves them only yearning for more. But the pleasures of the marriage bed cannot protect them from the sins of the past. With an enemy of Marshall’s drawing ever closer and everything they now cherish most at stake, he and Davina must fight to protect the passion they cannot deny.
Davina McLaren has had a really bad year. Curiosity about sex got the best of her and she had a tryst with someone. Unfortunately they got caught and she’s been shunned by polite society in Edinburgh for the year. Her aunt, her guardian, makes a marriage contract to someone Davina has never met. She’s not please with the match but what can she do.
…she acquiesced to her aunt’s various instructions to straighten her bonnet, don her gloves, pull down her skirt, and not fuss when Nora dusted off her shoes.
The chair was getting reupholstered and its limbs polished, the better to show itself to advantage. Perhaps she should also get her cushions restuffed.
