The Reckless One

The Reckless One

SYNOPSIS

Raine: The Reckless One...there was sin in his smile and wildness in his soul....

Raine Merrick's wild, reckless spirit had earned him time in a French prison. When a mysterious beauty gains his freedom only to betray him, Raine Merrick sets out for his father's castle on McClairen's Isle, seeking the treasure hidden within. But strange surprises await him in the Highlands. He never expected to find his deceitful angel masquerading as an honored guest. Or to want her with all the searing passion in his sinner's soul


Raine Merrick is rotting in a French prison when a mysterious woman comes to his aid. Raine soon learns that he is nothing but a pawn in her game and when he finally sees her again she is in his fathers house, Wantons Blush, where it appears she is trying to become the next lady of the manor.

Favor McClairen has been waiting for the time when she can reclaim her clans honor. As one of the few survivors of a massacre, it is up to her to marry Lord Carr and destroy the demons that have haunted her since childhood.

But meeting Raine changes everything. There is no denying the attraction between them, nor the fact that they both want the same thing: Carrs destruction. But the web that was spun long ago and the web of deception they have woven in the present places them in danger and allows passion to flourish.
