Hidden secrets could tear them apart as fast as their passion drove them together On the Moray coast in Scotland… Ethne’s genuine and caring nature makes her invaluable to her brother as his son’s caretaker, but he and his wife treat her as little more than their servant. When she learns their tribal leader would use her chaste status for his own purposes, Ethne plans to escape and reluctantly accepts the help of Lachlann—a handsome pilgrim she only just met at the local faire. Despite her independent spirit, Ethne feels drawn to Lachlann. Her instincts say his intentions are honorable, but can she trust him with her heart? Raised by his godfather with few clues to his family’s past, Lachlann values his freedom and the brotherhood of his highlander kin. Disguised as a pilgrim on a mission for the priory, he encounters Ethne, a warm, intelligent maiden whose courage in the face of a loveless marriage awakens an intense need to protect her. Unfortunately, Ethne is one of the very people he must deceive to explore the cave system containing clues to the lost treasure he seeks. But he cannot abandon her to an uncertain fate—or deny the simmering tension between them. With religious prejudice running high and both of them facing tests of loyalty, Lachlann and Ethne may realize the only way to fight for their futures is to surrender... to each other.

Their agenda, was to genetically engineer perfect Aryan children. These children were to be the new master race, once Hitler had cleared all undesirable elements (Jews, Gypsies, and everyone else the Nazi's felt had no right to live) out of Europe. Within a year the first Lebensborn institution was built and the program was underway. "A Flicker Of Light" The year is 1943.... The forests of Munich are crawling with danger under the rule of "The Third Reich," but in order to save the life of her unborn child Petra Jorgenson must escape from the home for the Lebensborn.

And even through there were those who would try to destroy it, true love would prevail. Here, in this lost land ruled by ...

When he returns, two adults who have barely met, and don’t even recognize each other must build a marriage. Can these two strong and determined personalities learn to overcome the resentments of the past, and convert the misunderstandings of the present into a passionate love affair on which they can build a life? If you love a sweet romance with no sex, this version is definitely for you! If you like sex with your romance, please buy "A Duchess Enraged", the "After Dark" (sexy) version of the same story. The novel is based on actual history, that of the Earl of March and Lady Sarah Cadogan. The historical details can be found in my blog at AHeyerLove.com. The Earl of Cadogan did marry his daughter, Lady Sarah Cadogan, to the Duke of Richmond’s son, the Earl of March, sight unseen as a way of settling an enormous gambling debt he owed the Duke. They were married the day after the agreement was made, and the infuriated Earl of March departed on his Grand Tour immediately thereafter, not to return for four years.
