One of the things I love about Collette’s writing is her total immersion into the period. Some authors tip toe around the historical elements, peppering their writing with just enough to be accurate for the critics. Collette, on the other hand, writes as if she lived it. Everything from the setting details to the smallest phrase a secondary character might say is spot-on and makes the reading experience spectacular.
If you’ve just found Collette Cameron, you’re just in time. Triumph and Treasure is the first in a brand new 6-book series called Highland Heather Romancing a Scot.
Angelina Ellsworth follows her heart, only to be jilted by a bigamist and sent away from Boston, MA to live with her aunt and uncle in England. Hiding away in the country, pretending to be widowed to excuse her pregnancy, she tries to keep scandal away from her loving family. No more romance – never marry again – one by one Angelina makes herself a set of rules to live by. But when her hero literally arrives on horseback to help her down from the tree she’s climbed, saving her from a raging bull, what’s a girl to do but fall in love with her knight?
When the Marquis of Bretheridge returns to his family estate, desperation sets in at the ruin his father left behind. The last thing he needs, while taking care of his sick mother, is an arranged marriage, to a woman he’s never met, that’s carrying another man’s child. But sometimes fate has plans we don’t understand, but have to trust, to find happiness.
You’ll have to read the book to know how all this, plus a triple rainbow and turtle-doves, all fit together. Triumph and Treasure will have you hooked! And while you’re waiting for book #2 in the series to come out in 2015, you can go back and read her original trilogy.
Triumph and Treasure gets 5 Red Pumps!
A disillusioned Scottish gentlewoman.
Angelina Ellsworth once believed in love—before she discovered her husband of mere hours was a slave-trader and already married. To avoid the scandal and disgrace, she escapes to the estate of her aunt and uncle, the Duke and Duchess of Waterford. When Angelina learns she is with child, she vows she’ll never trust a man again.
A privileged English lord.
Flynn, Earl of Luxmoore, led an enchanted life until his father committed suicide after losing everything to Waterford in a wager. Stripped of all but his title, Flynn is thrust into the role of marquis as well as provider for his disabled sister and invalid mother. Unable to pay his father’s astronomical gambling loss, Flynn must choose between social or financial ruin.
When the duke suggests he’ll forgive the debt if Flynn marries his niece, Flynn accepts the duke’s proposal. Reluctant to wed a stranger, but willing to do anything to protect her babe and escape the clutches of the madman who still pursues her, Angelina agrees to the union.
Can the earl and his Scottish lass find happiness and love in a marriage neither wanted, or is the chasm between them insurmountable?
