The Marquis' Tenacious Wife
(The third book in the Love's Second Chance series)
A novel by

When Henrietta is married off to Connor Brunwood, Marquis of Rodridge, she’s determined to hate the Scotsman. Can she learn to look past her assumptions and find love?An exciting Scottish Regency romance by a USA Today bestselling author.

Scotland 1805: On his way to claim his late father’s title, highland chief CONNOR BRUNWOOD, stumbles upon an English lass in a deserted clearing. She’s dressed like a man, in shirt and breeches, her blond tresses hidden under a large hat and a foil in her hand, as she practises the art of sword-fighting.

Awed by the sight of her spirited, blue eyes, and graceful, yet alluring movements, Connor calls her bluff, vowing that he will make her his wife.

However, that is easier said than done.

Weary of men and their intentions, HENRIETTA TURNER lives and plays by her own rules alone. So far she’s thwarted every marriage proposal to come her way - though gentlemen aren’t exactly beating down her door. Her scowl and outright manner have sent even the most steadfast of them running for the hills.
Good riddance, for Henrietta is hell-bent on remaining unwed.

However, her plans come to an abrupt halt when a devilishly disarming highlander discovers her secret hideout. Undeterred by her rejection, Connor goes over her head to her uncle and secures her hand in marriage.

Outraged, Henrietta is determined not to bend her head to this savage brute from the north, whose crooked smile and knowing eyes make her pulse race in a most disturbing and highly inconvenient way. Still, the walls she’s built around her heart begin to crumble as she struggles to resist his keen wit and gentle strength.

Sensing her wounded heart, Connor is resolved to break through her defences, and soon Henrietta will find herself swept off her feet by her dangerously attractive husband and the kind heart he offers her in exchange for her own.
