In a novel that sizzles with passionate intrigue and breathtaking romance, Marsha Canham whisks the reader back to war-torn Scotland as a legendary warrior fights for the two things most precious to any man: his country and the woman he loves.
She was born an Englishwoman, but he made her a Scot, pledged to fight for her beloved husband--even against the country of her birth.
Catherine Ashbrooke Cameron had committed the unpardonable sin of falling in love with her husband--a Scottish spy she married in her English home. Now, as she raced to the Highlands, the innocent English beauty would learn the passions of war--and the price of love . . . .
Alexander Cameron was a man with a price on his head and enemies to burn. Love had made the legendary warrior vulnerable. Now he must protect Catherine from the dangers that threatened them both. He had claimed her, touched her, loved her, and she vowed nothing would ever separate them again, even as he rode into a battle that would forever change the course of Scotland's history.
About the Author
She was inspired to write The Blood of Roses and its prequel, The Pride of Lions, by an inexplicable and intense fascination with eighteenth-century Scottish history. Among the many intriguing coincidences that occurred during the three years it took to write the two novels was the fact that the Battle of Culloden was fought on April 16, 1746, negotiations for The Pride of Lions were begun by her publisher on April 16, 1985, and the final words of The Blood of Roses were written on April 16, 1988. Neither of the latter two events was planned. They were brought to the author's attention by a third party.
Her next historical romance, Pale Moon Rider, will be available from Dell in December.
