A passion that burns away centuries of hate... The Georgian Rebel Series, Book 1 Stranded in the heart of England after Bonnie Prince Charlie's hasty retreat, highlander Fraser Lachlan has sworn to stay by his injured friend's side. But when a kindly English family takes Jack in to be cared for by the governess and healer at their Derbyshire estate, Fraser can only watch helplessly. It's just a matter of time before Jack is turned over to the Crown as a traitor, but Fraser's attempt to rescue his friend is met with the blunt end of a candlestick. Martha Wantage wears every reason she hates the Scots on her body-in the scars from a violent, fiery attack that killed her family. Now she has not only one unconscious Jacobite rebel at her mercy, but two. And she can't resist cursing her enemy with the "kiss of hate." That kiss unleashes a storm of passion that rages quickly out of control. But with the legacy of Martha's scars weighing heavy on her mind, and Fraser's duty calling him to battle at Culloden, it may be too late to explore whether theirs is a desire born of hate...or love. Warning: Contains a very sexy, masterful highlander and a demure, but defiant, governess who discovers the hard-very hard-way exactly what a Scotsman keeps under his kilt.

"Say naught. Else you shall be next." These are the words that leave a six-year-old Highland lass without a voice, and without memory of that terrible day her family's caravan was overtaken and her parents were slain. Now, thirteen years later, fresh from the nunnery where she was taken after the attack, Highland Lady, Morgana Cambel, harbors only one wish: To have one night of ecstasy with the man of her dreams--her worldly, beautiful cousin's sometime lover--Robert MacVie. So, when she is offered such a chance--a secret switch--she determines to take it. Highland Laird, Robert MacVie, desperately plots to ensnare his heiress lover into marriage in order to gain her dowry and pay his King the debt his late father owed, thus saving his clan from division and ruin. But a last minute switch changes the course of his life--and his heart--forever. When their passionate interlude is discovered by her unctuous, devious uncle, nothing will do but that Robert wed the impoverished Morgana instead. At first, they both resist. He, for the sake of his clan. She, for the sake of her unrequited love. But they quickly discover that resistance is futile. And a boon by the King soon lessens Robert's debt. Now, as their desire for each other grows, as Morgana's voice begins to return only in song, as their hearts bond, a legacy of jealousy and greed entraps Morgana in a furious death plot--and only her warrior-knight husband can save her!

Angeline Fortin explores the world of the MacKintosh clan, in this much-requested prequel to her Questions for a Highlander series. Captain Richard MacKintosh returned from Egypt wounded, not only in body but also in spirit, after making a daring getaway from the rebel band that held him and his military unit captive for months. However, though he had escaped, his brother, Vincent; friend, Jason; and the rest of his unit had been retaken. Forced back to England to recover, Richard is determined to use that time to force the government to garner their forces to search all of Egypt if necessary for his brothers-at arms still lost in the desert. He wanted – no, needed! – to spend each waking moment finding the help he needed and nothing was going to make him lose focus on that goal. That was until he ran into an angelic face from his past. One Lady Abygail Merrill. Abby had once been a brash, bossy tomboy who trailed along after him as a child. He had treated her as a friend, as yet another younger brother, but the lovely sophisticated woman he found in her place stirred anything but brotherly feelings. Richard finds in Abby a welcome haven against the storm of disappointment raging around him. A sympathetic ear and a comforting embrace. It becomes too easy to lose himself in her welcoming arms. But like him, Abby has her own demons to overcome before she can be free to love him.

However, Richard’s return has roused in Abby possibilities she thought long dead. All the hopes and fantasies that she’d held for most of her life are suddenly alive once more with promise. Richard genuine admiration recalls Abby to the girl she was once was and guides her back to the woman she was meant to be. Abby would do anything for the man she has long loved and knows that if she wants a life of her dreams with Richard, she must first help free him from the past. But once he is free to love her, will there be a future left for them to share?
