Publisher's 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.

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.😉

starts off strong and continues throughout

The first book was slow and hard to follow but this second one is very good at capturing your attention and keeping it throughout the book. great book!

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.

WW2 series was much better, IMO

This book had a lot of potential. I just don't care for cheap tricks like jewel theives, kidnappings, etc. If you like that sort of thing then you might enjoy this more than I did.

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!
