Can love really conquer all? Escaping her cruel father’s home had been difficult, but not as difficult as evading her feelings for Adam, her rescuer and the powerful Earl of Landry. Corrie disagrees with him on his political views, but cannot help melting in his arms. Their marriage is passionate, although Adam’s dreadful nightmares are a barrier she cannot breach. But when danger strikes Corrie and her sister Sarah, Adam is the one she turns to. Adam is frantic to save the woman he has come to love. But is their love strong enough to make him finally reveal his guilty secrets?
“Beside my desire to wed you, it is really the perfect solution for you. No one can touch you or force you in any way if you are the Marchioness of Beaufort. I had hoped to court you properly, but that also is unimportant now. I will get a special license and we will be wed tomorrow. Your father will not be able to figure out where you are in time to stop us.”
Corry’s face was a delight to see. Her expression changed from sheer incredulity, to a dawning of belief in his sincerity, to the realization that this would indeed offer her safety.
“Your sister of course will life with us, under my special protection. I’m sure I can get the Regent to appoint me her guardian. I think my name should be enough to withstand any attempts of your father to get he back. If not we will all go traveling until she reached her majority.’
Still Corry said not a word, although he could tell her mind was working furiously.
“You cannot love me,” she finally said flatly.
Adam smile faintly, his mouth quivering. Trust her bright mind to turn to the most important thing to some females.
Reading is still one of my favorite activities, although I often have to push it aside to make room for my even stronger love of writing. My journalism degree wasn't much use to me until recently. Marriage and raising two children pleasantly got in the way. After twenty years of being a real estate broker and with the kids raised I could finally devote my time to writing, my first love.
Few things in my life have been so satisfying, especially when all my books have a happy ending. Wonderful to make that happen. It only gets more interesting when a secondary character demands his very own book. Sometimes a new character is so noisy I just have to give in. Shouting inside my head can get my attention, believe me, and those guys are usually fun to write about.
