Summary

Wanted: Dead or alive. (Alive preferred, just sayin’.) 
When US Marshal Sam Dunaway comes to Kenton Valley, Texas, to prepare for a murder trial, the last person he expects to run into is his late wife Celine. The same woman who ran off with his life savings and supposedly died in a boardinghouse fire. 
Plain Jane seamstress Selma Nelson is surely a dead ringer for Celine. Rest assured, the demure dressmaker has a secret or three. Is there a chance Sam will understand if and when she comes clean with the truth? More likely, he’ll likely lock her away forever. 
What a dilemma. Either Sam sets aside his principles and arrests her or lose the love of his life. One thing for certain, he can’t deny the resurgence of passion that’s fanning the smoldering embers of their former love into a roaring inferno.

All she knows is that it is the place where she was born and where her father, the late Lord Rosscullen, died. She knows when he died and where, but how is a complete mystery. To Rosaleena amazement the subject is never discussed in Sir Uriel’s household – indeed, it is a matter that is actively avoided by everyone and no one will tell her the truth of what happened. Now, on the eve of her twenty-first birthday, Rosaleena is about to meet the man who will bring her face to face with her unknown past – the enigmatic and mysterious Colonel Joyce. When Rosaleena invites the Colonel to her birthday ball at Sir Uriel’s London house and he graciously accepts much to the strangely virulent disapproval of Sir Uriel, she sets in motion a sequence of events that will turn her life upside down. Journeying from fashionable London Society to the rugged mountains of a remote part of Ireland, Rosaleena will discover not only that true love never does run smooth but that it is by its nature never tame. After many twists and turns and disappointments, she gradually discovers the horrifying truth about her father’s death and how eventually she finds her heart’s desire is all told in this intriguing tale by BARBARA CARTLAND

    Raised by her aunt and uncle, the sanctimonious Duke and Duchess of Berkhamsted, the golden-haired and beautiful Alida Shenley lives in the shadow of the ‘shame’ that her late and much-loved father brought upon the family by marrying for love – and because her mother was a ballerina. 
    Being on the stage was tantamount to prostitution in Alida’s Guardians’ eyes and they inflict terrible punishments and humiliation upon her for what they see as her parent’s appalling sins.
    Even worse than her uncle’s savage whippings is the fact that he forbids her ever to marry as the carries the ‘bad blood’ of her mother.
    But hope eventually stirs in her heart when she is asked to accompany her cousin Mary on a voyage to Russia to meet the handsome young Prince Vorontski, whom Mary is to marry even though she flirts outrageously with the sinister Count Ivan, who is on the Steamer escorting them to St. Petersburg. 
    In Russia Alida’s dreams of happiness are dashed as she falls hopelessly in love with Prince. 
    Worse still she finds that Mary has conspired with Count Ivan for her to marry his father, a Russian General as despicable and brutal as her uncle. 
    But just as she despairs of ever finding love with the Prince, Fate intervenes amid a life or death confrontation with a murderous pack of wolves in the Russian snow and her life is changed forever.
