Can a Desert Rose survive a Scottish winter?

The wild Scottish landscape is a far cry from Rose Saintclair’s Saharan oasis, although she’ll endure it for Lord Cameron McRae, the man she married after a whirlwind romance in Algiers. But when stormy weather leads to Rose’s Scotland-bound ship docking on Cape Wrath – the land of Cameron’s enemy, Bruce McGunn – could her new life already be in jeopardy?

Lord McGunn was a fearless soldier, but his experiences have made him as unforgiving as the land he presides over. He knows McRae won’t rest until he owns Wrath, and the man is willing to use brutal tactics. Bruce decides that he’ll play McRae at his own game, take the ship and its precious occupant, and hold them hostage.

Rose is determined to escape, but whilst captured she learns that there’s another side to her new husband – and could her supposedly cold and ruthless kidnapper also be concealing hidden depths?

Linked to Angel of the Lost Treasure and Queen of the Desert. All standalone stories. This is Rose’s story. 

Available as an eBook and audiobook on all platforms. Paperback available from Amazon.

  1. It is a story I thoroughly enjoyed and giggled at throughout. Having got married to Lord McRae, Rose finds herself stranded on a damaged ship on the dreadful Lord McGunn’s land.

    Bruce McGunn embraces this unfortunate incident and decides to use Rose as a bargaining tool to aquire some land. Little does he know about Rose and her being such a determined and cunning lady. She will try anything to escape and return to her new husband.

    She hears many stories along the way about her husband but refuses to believe he has anything to do with them. Rose embarks on many dangerous escapades but Bruce McGunn always manages to find her….

    Marie has created another brilliant historical romance, this time set in dark and broody Scotland. Some wonderful believable characters including Rose Saintclair and Bruce McGunn. Great plot conjuring up just the right amount of jeopardy and danger. A brilliant story from a master storyteller. I look forward to reading more from this author.

    This is the third book I’ve read by this author and I loved it! Action, romance, and mystery all combined into one. The chemistry between Rose and Bruce leaps off the page. I found myself not able to put the book down. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romance!

    I enjoyed this book and am sure most people will as well. The story brings together a shipwrecked girl, a Scottish Laird, a ruthless landlord and Moroccan dancers! I fell in love with the characters and the feisty heroine deserved a happy ending but did she get it? I loved how the author melded all the characters, history and countries together into a thrilling romantic story.

    This is a thrilling read, set amidst the stunning backdrop of the Scottish highlands. Rose has left Algeria as a newly wed. However she is both rescued and kidnapped by her new husband’s enemy Bruce McGunn, who claims that her husband is not the hero that Rose thinks he is. But Bruce is fighting demons of his own. There are twists and turns galore as Rose fights to find out the truth and to determine her own future. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this exciting story and learning about these fascinating characters.

    This a certainly a hefty tome – there is a lot of meat in it – plots within plots, keeping the interest of the reader. It is well written, and really it is a decent read, a worthy successor to the earlier novels in the same family of books by this author, though it can happily stand alone.
