I ran across something about members of a family in Virginia, and how one of them had been a Scottish baronet even though he never left the United States. Intrigued, I wondered what would have happened if an American had been made a baronet, especially right after the Civil War. What would have happened if he’d visited Scotland? The answer was Montgomery Fairfax.
Veronica was still reeling from a loss of her own, and forced to be the poor relation in her cousins’ home. The idea of being rescued by Montgomery was the dream of a lifetime.
Take a woman who is ecstatic to be trapped into marriage and a man who wanted anything but, and sparks are bound to fly!
Here’s the blurb:
Veronica MacLeod knows nothing about the man who appears from nowhere to prevent her from committing the most foolish and desperate act of her life. Recently named Lord Fairfax of Doncaster Hall, the breathtaking, secretive stranger agrees to perform the one act of kindness that can rescue the Scottish beauty from scandal and disgrace–by taking Veronica as his bride.
Journeying with Montgomery Fairfax to his magnificent estate in the Highlands, Veronica knows deep in her heart that this is a man she can truly love–a noble soul, a caring and passionate lover whose touch awakens feelings she’s never before known. Yet there are ghosts in Montgomery’s past that haunt him still. Unless Veronica can somehow unlock the enigma that is her new husband, their powerful passion could be undone by the sins and sorrows of yesterday.
