Summary

A young mother’s troubled past catches up to her—and sets her heart aflame—in this spellbinding western romance set in California’s untamed past.  Sierra Nevada, 1867. Susannah Walker has fled to Angel’s Valley with her three-year-old son, seeking safety and a place to start over—a place where no one knows her name or who she used to be. But she never dreamed the past would come looking for her . . .   Bounty hunter Nathan Wolfe was hired to find Susannah and take her home to stand trial for her crimes. Carrying his own regrets in his heart, Nathan is committed to fulfilling the job. But as he gets to know Susannah, he begins to wonder if she’s truly the criminal he’s been told she is. In order to get to the bottom of the mystery he’ll have to gain her trust, which is the one thing Susannah does not give away easily . . .   “Jane Bonander reaches to her readers’ hearts.” —RT Book Reviews

    Returning to his family estate after a long absence in India serving under the much-loved and now-deceased Viceroy, Michael, the handsome Earl of Rayburne, is appalled to find that his estate and the local village have gone to rack and ruin.
    It seems that his uncle to whom he had entrusted them has embezzled everything that the Earl owns, including the contents of Rayburne Castle and has decamped with his loot to America.
    Penniless and unable to pay the estate's workers and pensioners, who are on the verge of starvation, he has no choice but to throw himself on the mercy of Lord Frazer, the owner of the neighbouring estate and his family's bitter enemy in an age-old land dispute over a wood. 
    To the Earl's astonishment the hateful Lord Frazer offers him not a loan but a gift, amounting to fifty thousand ponds, in order to combine their two estates. 
    But there is one other condition. The Earl must marry Lord Frazer's young daughter, Ansella, whom he has never even met.
    Although now he can begin to rescue the estate and its people from ruin, the Earl is in despair, certain that Lord Frazer's daughter will be an ugly harridan who can never become the beloved 'Lady in the Castle' like his late and much-loved mother.
    But everything changes when he finally sees his bride after their Marriage Service.
    She is beautiful! 
    Her face is heart-shaped and her hair is pale gold like the sun at dawn – little wonder that soon the young Earl of Rayburne realises that he is falling in love.

    "I have the privilege of being half-Scottish and for me Scotland is the most romantic country in the world.
    I admit to a number of Scottish admirers and indeed I married two Scotsmen.
    But for me nothing can compete with Scotland's rugged sweeping mountains, cascading waterfalls, the skirl of the bagpipes and the swirl of the kilt.
    Dream Castles and tall handsome Highlanders.
    Romance Heaven for the heart."
