New York Times bestselling author Karen Ranney returns with the third heart-stirring novel in her latest series, a tale of deceit, desperate measures, and delirious desire

Rose MacIain is a beautiful woman with a secret. Desperate and at her wits' end, she crafts a fake identity for herself, one that Duncan MacIain will be unable to resist. But she doesn't realize that posing as the widow of the handsome Scotsman's cousin is more dangerous than she knew. And when a simmering attraction rises up between them, she begins to regret the whole charade.

Duncan is determined to resist the tempting Rose, no matter how much he admires her arresting beauty and headstrong spirit. When he agrees to accompany her on her quest, their desire for each other only burns hotter. The journey tests his resolve as their close quarters fuel the fire that crackles between them.

When the truth comes to light, these two stubborn people must put away their pride and along the way discover that their dreams of love are all they need.

 Rose is a young woman of incredible strength. At a time when the country was tearing itself apart, she moves from New York to South Carolina after her sister marries a southern gentleman. Unable to bear the common, everyday practices of slavery and the master of the plantation, she rebels in every way possible, paying the price, physically and emotionally. When her brother-in-law joins the southern army, she and her sister are left alone to run the plantation.
Duncan MacLain is a Scottish mill owner. When a young woman from southern America lands on his doorstep with an intriguing but dangerous offer, he accepts the challenge in an effort to save his mill and the hundreds of employees depending on him for jobs.
As the story unfolds, he learns of the horrors of the south committed everyday in the name of business.
This book was amazing. Dealing with such sensitive issues couldn't have been easy, but the author did a wonderful job.  It gave us both POVs which I like, and didn't confuse the reader.
On a less serious note, the author did a good job of maintaining tension and keeping the reader interested.
I would highly recommend the author to anyone who enjoys historical romance.
I give it four stars

USA Today and New York Times bestselling author, Karen Ranney began writing when she was five. Her first published work was The Maple Leaf, read over the school intercom when she was in the first grade. In addition to wanting to be a violinist (her parents had a special violin crafted for her when she was seven), she wanted to be a lawyer, a teacher, and, most of all, a writer. Though the violin was discarded early, she still admits to a fascination with the law, and she volunteers as a teacher whenever needed. Writing, however, has remained the overwhelming love of her life.
