A Question of Love (Questions For A Highlander Book 1)

Romance / Literature & Fiction

The Earl of Shaftesbury's countess must be refined. Cultured. Perfect. It was a lesson that proper Evelyn Ashley-Cooper had learned flawlessly over six oppressive years of marriage. Even when widowhood freed her from the prison her life had become, Eve still floundered under the veneer of perfection that her domineering husband demanded, unable to unleash the lively girl she once was from the confines of her prim exterior.But when her long-lost first love Francis MacKintosh, Earl Glenrothes reappears in her life, Eve is tempted by the desire to escape her proper façade and the longing to truly live once again. Discovering that enticement alone cannot overrule years of tyranny, Eve struggles between her old self and the new, between yearning to be with him and a determination never to put herself under the thumb of another man–even one she discovers she still loves as much as her Glenrothes.Since meeting a vivacious, young Eve many years before, Francis MacKintosh has become a man embittered by life, by a wife who has made him a cuckold to the whole of Scotland and by a humiliating divorce that has rained scandal down upon the heads of himself and his family for years. Never had he thought that he would find Eve, his Eden, once again or that he would dare push aside his disdain of the fairer sex, to trust and love once more. But for Eve, for the love and happiness he is suddenly certain they can find only in each other, he finds himself willing to take a chance.If only he might convince his true love to do the same!Francis' seduction and ability to blend her proper side with the spirited Eve of years past lure the countess back to him but just when happiness seems but a step away, their mutual pasts will come crashing down around them attempting to tear them apart and Eve and Francis will have to risk their lives for a future together.The question remains, will their rediscovered love be enough to conquer all?

A Question for Harry

A Question for Harry

Romance / Literature & Fiction

There was just something about Harry… In this spicy, humorous addition to the Questions for a Highlander series, Angeline Fortin continues the adventures of the MacKintosh clan with the tale of how Harry met Fiona… And broke her heart. They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but Fiona MacKintosh was more inclined to believe that after a long, furious journey through hell, no scorned woman was apt to be inclined to love and entrust her heart to a man so easily again. Especially not to the same man! Lord Harrison Brudenall, Marquis of Aylesbury, isn’t a man to let what he wants slip through his fingers, however, and what Harry wants is Fiona as his wife. Two years past, friendship and respect for the MacKintosh brothers compelled him to discourage the infatuation and flirtation of their only sister even if he denied himself in the process, but the years since have changed Harry. The joy and humor once readily found in his life has become conspicuously absent but Harry doesn’t realize just how lacking they had been until he met Fiona MacKintosh once more. Unconventional, daring and achingly beautiful, she reminds Harry of everything his life has been missing and what it was like to truly feel alive. Now, he means to have the temperamental Highland lass for his own whether the whole of the MacKintosh clan – Fiona included – approves or not. And she does not! Fiona is determined to find a man and marriage meant for her convenience and the handsome, charismatic, heartbreaking marquis, Harry Brudenall, is not on her list. But when danger looms unexpectedly, and it is her life rather than her heart that is in peril, Fiona soon realizes that there is only one man she wants to turn to for protection. One man who will prove his love … and without question, give his life for her.

Taken: A Laird for All Time Novel (Volume 2)

Angeline Fortin

Romance / Literature & Fiction

Second chances are only helpful if you recognize them for what they are. Celebrated actress Scarlett Thomas never wanted fame -- that was her parent’s dream. Now she’s ready to make big changes, but she could never have imagined how big those changes might turn out to be. Returning to the medieval Dunskirk Castle, where she filmed The Puppet War trilogy, she encounters Donell, an old Scotsman who directs her to an ancient claymore that sends Scarlett slipping back 500 years – to a time when her modern struggles are dwarfed by a far more dangerous conflict brewing between Scotland and England. Scottish Border lord, James Hepburn, Laird of Achenmeade, is a man at loose ends. The illegitimate son the King’s Lord High Chamberlain, he has no place in his father’s home and no freedom to forge a future of his own. With war against England looming once again on Scotland’s horizon, James must not only fight for his country, but also do battle with his growing attraction for a slender, sassy lass who tempts him to defy his sire and his King. As the days pass, bringing them closer to war and to each other, Scarlett and James discover that their differences are not so profound as their similarities and that the 16th century and the 21st century do not diverge so much in what truly matters most. The connection between them continues to grow, but when they are presented with the opportunity to live their lives freely, as they choose, will they seize their second chance before the Battle of Flodden separates them forever? Before it’s too late, will Scarlett realize how lucky she was to be taken by a Laird? **
