The Ravishing One

The Ravishing One

SYNOPSIS

She is the toast of London society. But Fia Merrick gives her heart to no one, for love is a weakness she cannot afford. Once she would have given her soul to Thomas McClairen, until he shattered her innocent dreams. Now he is back, a convict returned to England in disguise to abduct Fia to Scotland, to McClairen's Isle. There, as Fia seeks her revenge in seduction, a passion is ignited that defies the past and cannot be denied...

People never knew if Fia Merrick was born bad or turned bad by her ruthless father. But there was never a doubt that she was a woman to be reckoned with.

At an early age, Fia learned to guard her thoughts and heart, fearful others would perceive her as weak—something she could never be. Only once did she want to give her love, but Thomas McClairen broke her dreams and left her heart hardened.

Now, Thomas returns for Fia, to abduct her from England and bring her home to Scotland. Using all of her seductive wiles, Fia plans to ruin Thomas, but the old passion reignites and she is torn between memories of the past, her cold-hearted fathers teachings and her desire for love.

Fia will learn the power of love as an old secret reveals the truth of her past, bringing this trilogy to a full circle in the last, and perhaps best, of the McClairens Isle trilogy.
