A Reckless Redemption, Spies and Lovers Book 3
On the eve of her wedding to man she detests, Brynmore McCann plots to escape the match by ruining herself, but the local lads leave her wholly uninspired. Nearly giving up her plan, she spots Maxwell Drake home after nearly a decade. Although he’d been in love with her sister, Bryn had always considered him hers. She can’t think of anyone she’d rather have bed her for the first time. But, she never intends for him to discover her identity.
Upon coming home, Maxwell, the unacknowledged by-blow of a local nobleman, discovers his father may have left him an inheritance, and the fairy-lass he spent an incredibly satisfying night with was not the village whore, but the high-born sister of his first love. Wrestling with resentment over her deception, he insists Brynmore travel with him to Edinburgh until they know if she is with child— and if she is, she’ll marry him whether she wants to or not.
Complicating matters is the man (or men) out to kill them. As the list of suspects grows longer and his worry deepens, Maxwell falls further and further under Brynmore’s gentle spell even though removing the armor from his heart terrifies him more than the peril that threatens them from every angle.
Warning: Contains a broody Scotsman with a tin heart, a fiery-haired lass who knows what she wants, and a night of passion neither can forget…
