Lady Rowena Kinnaird may be the heiress to a Highland earldom, but she has never felt good enough—not for her father, not for the man she thought she’d marry, not for God. But after a shocking attack, she’s willing to be forever an outcast if it means escaping Loch Morar and the men who have jeopardized her life.

Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has suddenly found himself in possession of a rare treasure his enemies are prepared to kill for. While Brice has never been one to shy away from manor-born ladies, the last thing he needs is the distraction of his neighbor, Lady Rowena, who finds herself in a desperate situation. But when the moody Earl of Lochabar tries to trap Brice into marrying Rowena, Brice finds he’s not as opposed to the idea as he expected to be.

Rowena wanted to escape the Highlands, but she’s reluctant to resort to marrying a notorious flirt just to gain his English home. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in some kind of questionable business with a stolen treasure, she ’fears she’s about to end up directly in the path of everything she was trying to avoid.
 (less)Gosh! what an amazing read! I'm completely blown away by this story! Roseanna did a wonderful job in writing this book. I love how shade her characters grow and mature. with the way they interact with each other especially Rowena

I loved watching Rowena grow out of her shell and learning to walk with Lord! Rowena has had a hard life, until she met Brice. 
Brice is my hero for that reason! He too has changed a lot since The Lost Heiress. His love for the Lord shows in everything he does. I think we can learn a lot from Brice. 
I love the way he wants to protect Rowena from harm. He'd be an awesome father!
Ella is as flighty as they come! She's an awesome person as well. She is the one who refriended Rowena and made her feel like one of the family. 
I don't think I could live that lifestyle. I would definitely feel out of place especially of I couldn't be myself as God intended me to be.
Society can be cruel to those who don't live up to their standards. 
I believe that Rowena is right on certain things like the Fire Eyes. Only greed can cause evil and harm others. Ppl bring that on themselves. 
Only if we believe in God and trust His ways will true light show through.
Thank you Roseanna for anther wonderful story. 
I received a copy of this book from Roseanna in exchange for am honest review
