About the Book
Will Fleeing the Scottish Highlands Only Leave Her in More Danger?
Lady Rowena Kinnaird may be the heiress to a Highland earldom, but she’s 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 those threatening her life.
Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has never been one to shy away from manor-born ladies, yet the last thing he needs is the distraction of the newly introduced Lady Rowena. He has enough on his plate having recently come into possession of a rare treasure for which many would kill, yet those around him seem intent on pairing him with this desperate but beguiling girl.
Rowena is reluctant to marry this notorious flirt. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in some kind of questionable business with a stolen treasure, she fears she’ll end up in more danger than she fled.
About the Author
Roseanna M. White pens her novels beneath her Betsy Ross flag, with her Jane Austen action figure watching over her. When not writing fiction, she’s homeschooling her two children, editing and designing, and pretending her house will clean itself. The Reluctant Duchess is Roseanna’s eleventh published book. Her novels range from biblical fiction to American-set romances to her new British series. She lives with her family in West Virginia.
Author Roseanna M. White’s novel A Reluctant Duchess, is a novel readers will not soon forget. From page one, Roseanna enraptures readers and takes them to the world of Lady Rowena Kinaird, heiress to a Highland earldom. Men have never treated her the best, including her father and the man she thought she would marry and would take her away from her abusive father. After being attacked by her former love, Lady Rowena is even less confident in herself than ever before. But Brice Myerston, Duke of Nottingham, comes to her rescue. Even going so far as to marry her when she is placed in grave danger. Will a love like no other blossom between these unlikely couple, or will secrets of questionable business with a stolen treasure be their undoing. Roseanna’s characters will steal your heart away as you fall in love with them, as well as the wonderful and engaging historical romance. I would recommend this novel to fans of Downton Abbey.
