Historical Romance

Scottish Highlands – 1814

Half-sisters Pamela and Sophie need a man, a Scotsman who is none too bright, to pose as the duke’s heir who records say died over thirty years ago. Pamela and Sophie were born back stage, their mother an actress, but now the theatre is gone and they have nowhere to go and little money. The theatre burned to the ground and their mother with it. Sophie, the beauty of the family, has been offered carte blanche from a viscount, but Pamela is determined to keep her sister from that fate. If they could only collect the reward for finding the lost duke! Pamela’s fondest dream is to protect her sister and find her mother’s killer.

Luck is on their side when Pamela and Sophie’s coach is stopped by a highwayman. Connor Kincaid is enthralled by the spirited Pamela and she with him, the perfect candidate to be a duke. Pamela pulls out her tiny pistol and ties Connor’s hands, telling him to take them to some place where they can talk. He takes her to a moldering castle in the mist inhabited by several pistol-toting Scotsmen. Connor has already escaped the hangman’s noose once. Will he want to take a chance and risk his life to become a duke?

This book has it all: sensual tension, a sexy romance, and adventure, with some funny situations and sparkling dialogue. The hero and heroine are both likeable; Pamela is feisty and smart, but not too smart for the handsome hero, Connor. Of course, events could never happen as depicted, but it all makes for a fun and romantic tale. The story has good pacing, and Connor’s friend, Brodie, will have readers laughing at his antics.

SOME LIKE IT WILD is a story that readers won’t want to miss.
