"From the drawing rooms of Regency London to the wilds of Scotland, Adrienne Basso spins a tempestuous tale of secrets, surprises, and breathtaking passion...She Ran From A Broken Heart... A pillar of decorum and decency, Harriet Sainthill suddenly finds herself the object of scandal when her cad of a fiance jilts her. Ever practical, she accepts a position as a governess to a wealthy Scottish merchant, determined to escape London and the gossip of the ton. Her hopes for a quiet new life are dashed when she arrives at the dark, desolate castle in the wilds of Scotland and meets her mysterious new employer--a darkly handsome man Harriet finds both intimidating and intriguing......Straight Into The Arms Of Love Powerful, implacable and infuriatingly secretive, "Mr. Wainwright" is no Scottish merchant, but rather a runaway English lord. Once a rake who savored the indolent life of a reckless nobleman, Nathaniel Bennett must now protect three orphaned children and his own legacy from a conniving relative. And while the distraction of a sharp-tongued governess is the last thing he needs, he can think of little else but sweeping her into his arms...and off to his bed. As danger and deceit ally them in a perilous adventure, Harriet will soon uncover Nathaniel's deepest secrets--and her own deepest desires."The sensuously detailed love scenes, undercurrent of danger and polished writing fuel Basso's latest historical Regency, which will draw fans of Amanda Quick and Nicole Jordan."--Booklist on To Protect An Heiress."-- Provided by publisher.
