The Highland Countess

(1981)
(The seventh book in the Royal Ambition series)
A novel by

 
 
Morag Fleming, the Countess of Murr, had been bride to the most lecherous lord in Scotland - yet the ravishingly lovely girl had never been touched. So it was that Morag had never borne a child - yet as a young widow, she arrived in London with a fine son in tow. Her background had left her ignorant of the follies and fopperies of fashion - yet soon all of society was at her feet. Most incredible of all, she knew so little about the ways and wiles of love - yet set her heart upon none other than the devastatingly handsome, charming, and wealthy Lord Toby Freemantle, who could have any woman he wanted, and was clearly not interested in her.

ABOUT THE SERIES


What could be more engaging than the women who rise from the commoner classes and minor nobility to triumph in the unforgiving society of Regency Period London. Read about women who have lost their fortunes, country girls at their first season, and new wives who can't resist temptation in the nine titles of the Changing Fortunes Collection.
