Flames of Winter
#1 Flames of Winter
In this Regency romance by USA Today bestselling author BREE WOLF, a young miss succeeds in escaping an unwanted marriage, only to end up finding love.
A kidnapped young miss.
A protective Scotsman.
And a cabin in the woods in the deep of winter.
England 1804: SARAH MORTENSEN, daughter to BARON HARTMORE, is desperate…desperate to escape yet another horrible match her parents arranged for her. Once, she saw it as her duty to save her family from ruin, to sacrifice herself in order to repay her father’s gambling debts.
But enough is enough.
Determined to escape her latest fiancé, Sarah places her trust in the Dowager Countess of Whickerton, known far and wide as Grandma Edie. After all, no one is as shrewd as the dowager countess…or as daring. Her plan is outrageous. Her intentions, however, are pure.
And so, Sarah agrees…to a feigned kidnapping…hoping to win her freedom.
KEIR MACKINNEAR, second son to the chief of CLAN MACKINNEAR in the Scottish Highlands, questions his own sanity when he finds himself kidnapping a shy, wide-eyed English lass from her London home in the middle of the night. He ought never have gone along with the Dowager Countess of Whickerton’s ludicrous plan! Yet here they are, hiding out in a cabin in the woods in the middle of winter!
Only the two of them!
Not counting two horses, an old goat, a handful of chickens and a haughty feline by the name of Loki.
What could go wrong?
After all, the dowager countess is not known to be wrong. Ever.
Yet what slips Keir’s mind is that Grandma Edie loves nothing more than to play matchmaker. And while she is certainly determined to save Sarah from her vile fiancé, she might just have an ulterior motive.
Why not hit two birds with one stone?
