Award-winning author Patricia Potter sweeps readers to an ancestral estate in Scotland where a lady’s heart is reawakened by the surprising arrival of a rugged American lawman
After hunting down outlaws during America’s Civil War, marshal Ben Masters faces a new challenge. His promise to a dying woman has made him the guardian of Sarah Ann Hamilton, an orphaned little girl who must be returned to the Scottish estate she has inherited. But at Calholm, Ben encounters a clan divided by greed and ambition. Only Sarah Ann stands between the coveted Scottish keep and those next in line to inherit. One of them is the child’s beautiful aunt.
Five years ago, Lisbeth Hamilton came to Calholm as a young bride. When her husband died, she found a new passion: establishing a world-renowned stable and breeding a champion steed to rival any in the British Isles. Now the entire family’s fate rests with the rugged American who has upended their world . . . and who arouses strong emotions in Lisbeth. With deadly intrigue swirling around Calholm and Ben Masters laying claim to her heart, she realizes how far she’ll go to protect the child they have both come to love and the passion they were meant to share.
The Marshal and the Heiress is the 1st book in the American/Scottish Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
