Summary

In nineteenth-century France, a young woman is caught in a treacherous web of spies, intrigue, and dangerous romance.   During the final years of the Napoleonic Wars, desolate Emily Micklen has few options after her loving fiancé, Jack, dies in battle. With child, she is sure to face ruinous scandal, rejection from her Puritanical father, and absolute poverty should she be cast out. Her only escape is to accept the proposal of a scarred and taciturn soldier.   Emily is Major Angus McCartney’s chance for escape as well—from the loneliness and haunting grief over the sins of his past and the tragic death of his mistress. Then, as Napoleon cuts a swath across Europe, Angus is sent to France to snare a notorious female French spy. But neither he nor Emily is prepared for where the mission will lead them—straight into a trap of family betrayals and deadly secrets. Now, in a time of war, Emily and Angus will discover that their hard-won love could be the only thing that can save them.

    “Sophie Love's ability to impart magic to her readers is exquisitely wrought in powerfully evocative phrases and descriptions….[This is] the perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”
    --Midwest Book Review (Diane Donovan re: For Now and Forever)
     
    “A very well written novel, describing the struggle of a woman to find her true identity. The author did an amazing job with the creation of the characters and her description of the environment. The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”
    --Books and Movies Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re: For Now and Forever)
    
    LOVE LIKE THIS (The Romance Chronicles—Book #1) is the debut of a new romance series by #1 bestselling author Sophie Love.
    
    Keira Swanson, 28, lands her dream job at Viatorum, a slick magazine in New York City, as an aspiring travel writer. But their culture is brutal, her boss is a monster, and she doesn’t know if she can last for long.
    
    That changes when Keira, by a fluke, is handed a coveted assignment and given her big chance: to travel to Ireland for 30 days, witness the legendary Lisdoonvarna festival of love, and to debunk the myth that true love exists. Keira, cynical herself and in a rocky place with her long-term boyfriend, is all too happy to oblige.
    
    But when Keira falls in love with Ireland and meets her Irish tour guide, who just may be the man of her dreams, she is no longer sure of anything.
    
    A whirlwind romantic comedy that is as profound as it is funny, LOVE LIKE THIS is book #1 in the debut of a dazzling new romance series that will make you laugh, cry, and will keep you turning pages late into the night—and will make you fall in love with romance all over again.

    USA Today bestselling author Gayle Callen creates an unforgettable story of mistaken identity and irresistible attraction in this first in a wonderfully engaging series set in the Scottish Highlands. 
    Shaken from sleep during the night and bundled off to the Highlands by a burly Scot, Riona is at first terrified, then livid. Hugh McCallum insists they were promised to each other as children to ensure peace between their clans. The stubborn laird refuses to believe he's kidnapped the wrong Catriona Duff. Instead, he embarks on a campaign of slow-burning seduction. 
    At first, Hugh cares only what their marriage can do for his people. Now he's starting to crave Riona for her own sake, but her true identity jeopardizes his clan's contract. And unless she chooses to risk all to be his bride, he'll lose the only thing he prizes more than the lands he's fought so hard to save—the passionate marriage they could have together.
