Summary

After a shocking attack, Rowena Kinnaird is desperate to escape her family and her ex-fiancé. She finds an unexpected protector in the Duke of Nottingham, but will she ever be able to trust him - let alone fall in love - when his custody of the Fire Eyes jewels endangers her once more?

A riveting Edwardian series set among Britain's high society, Lady Rowena Kinnaird may be the heiress to a Highland earldom, but she has never felt good enough - not for her father, not for the man she thought she'd marry, not for God. But after a shocking attack, she's willing to be forever an outcast if it means escaping Loch Morar.

Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has found himself in possession of a rare treasure his enemies are prepared to kill for. While Brice has never been one to shy away from manor-born ladies, the last thing he needs is the distraction of Lady Rowena, who finds herself in a desperate situation. But when Rowena's father tries to trap Brice into marrying his daughter, Brice makes a surprising decision.

Rowena wanted to escape the Highlands, but she's reluctant to marry a notorious flirt. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in questionable business with a stolen treasure, she fears she's about to end up directly in the path of everything she was trying to avoid.

Amazingly, even BETTER!

BRAVO! MAGNIFICENT, Even Better than the first of the trilogy. Stand-alone but the depth of knowing the first, as goid as it was, made this one all the more enriched and left me eager to start the third! :) Wonderful!

Just as good as book one. 💓

After listening to book one in this series and liking it I knew I had to give book two a listen. I like this series because each book is a complete story with no cliffhangers and they are clean reads. Like book one, this book has delightful characters with mystery and romance. It does have some of the same characters as book one but you definitely could start with book two of this series and you wouldn't be lost. The characters are Christians so if you don't enjoy books of faith you might want to skip this series. But I recommend this to everyone.

Loved the narration! She is a delight to listen to.😉

Excellent!

Narrator brilliantly brings life to this well written story! Loved the characters, the faith portrayed, and seeing the rare depth of character that caused two strangers to fight for what is right... to fight for love.

Wonderful historical fiction mystery and romance

I enjoyed the first book in the series and this continuation of the story with more focus on certain characters from the first book was fabulous. Brice has become The Duke of Nottingham and is in Scotland with his family when he becomes acquainted with Lady Rowena Kinnaird. Rowena is in a difficult situation and Brice, always the gentleman steps in to do what he thinks is right. Katherine Pratt always cunning does not stop her treachery and new predators and secrets come to light. I look forward to the next book!

One of tne best books I've gotten on Audible!<br />

This is the second book I've read/listened too by Roseanna M White, and I have loved both of them. i love that she includes fairh and prayer as a main stay of the main characters. The narration was awesome and believable accents. There are lessons to glean from the characters practical faith and God's presence in our lives if we listen to His voice. I highly recommend this book.

Love this series!!!

Beautiful story of love filled with grace. There may be those who find stories that have almost "too good to be true" love too fluffy, but I find it an inspiration to attempt to love that way.

Excellent Tale in the Series

Roseanna White continues to offer exciting and entertaining stories as she continues her epic about rare diamonds, greed, and intrigue, only this time she includes the highlands of Scotland. I thoroughly enjoy her writing and Ms Pearce continues to bring the story to life. Good combination and a must for romance readers.
