A For Love Novel - 5
When the Marquess of Scarborough brings his family to visit America, US Marshal Jack Dawson is tasked to be their escort as they travel across the country. He had been a guest of the Marquess' the year before when he'd gone to London to help Scotland Yard stop the Lady Ripper Killer. He had flirted shamelessly with the young and snobbish Kirsty Pruitt and would now be spending the entire summer at close quarters with her as they toured the country.
Though the marshal had kissed her senseless a few times now, Kirsty is offended by his uncivilized nature and impropriety. He openly flirts with her, stealing kisses in ways no English gentleman would dare try. Even though he is quite handsome, in her eyes, he is horribly unpolished, and she spends every moment she can becoming a pest to him.
While touring Yellowstone National Park, Kirsty heads off on her own and Jack is forced to chase after her. They become lost in Yellowstone’s vast wilderness and Kirsty's pride is replaced with fear. Though Jack finds it amusing that she has learned a lesson in humility, he doesn't want to admit that he's scared too.
As they fight to survive, Jack’s uncivilized nature becomes the key to saving them, and Kirsty is shamed of her earlier opinion of him. She quickly has to adapt to survive one of the wildest places in America, while becoming what she once despised in Jack.
They survive the perils of the wild, Wyoming wilderness and manage to reunite with Kirsty's family, though their feelings for each other have drastically changed.
Though the marquess wants to take his family home to England before anymore calamities can occur, Kirsty doesn't want to return to her old life, and Jack isn't sure if he wants to see her leave.
A For Love Novel - 6
Samuel Lone Hawk first saw Trinity Pruitt two years ago, when her family was touring the United States. Trinity was a quiet, but observant girl, and he found himself constantly watching her and enjoying the blush that spread across her pale cheeks when she noticed.
Trinity, having just been introduced to society a few years prior, was still quite shy, and on her second trip to the United States, was determined to let the Americans' pluck rub off on her. One of the Indian affairs agents helping her brother-in-law secure peace in the west, happened to be Samuel Hawk, who she’d met on her first trip to the country. Samuel wasn’t like most of the Americans she’d met, but quiet and watchful, with skin the color of honey and black hair that fell over shockingly blue eyes that always seemed to watch her.
Samuel was pleased to see that the young debutante he’d first met two years prior had blossomed into a beautiful young woman. Though still quiet, she was confident, prone to smile, and Samuel felt a growing attraction to the English lady that had returned to America.
When an Indian raid results in Trinity’s capture, Samuel is the only one who can gain her release, and he’s determined to see her safe, even if it costs him his life.
Modesty Pruitt has always been one to enjoy a good story, and be part of one herself. It was only natural that she began to write the stories she'd seen, in hopes she'd be able to one day publish them.
But the world still thinks a woman's place is at home, raising children. Every publishing house she's been to has scoffed at the thought of a woman author and nearly laughed her from the building. So, she decides to take fate into her own hands.
Michael Fairchild worked hard to become the top editor and owner of the biggest publishing company in London. He's had to be cynical and cunning to fend off every other company fighting to see his empire go under. So, when a young woman comes to him with a series of romance novels, written by her brother, Michael is ready to see the girl to the curb. Romance isn't real, it certainly wouldn’t sell any books, and he'd be dammed if he'd see his company turn into the laughingstock of London.
But after the young woman leaves in tears, Michael sits down to read the manuscript that she left, and is surprised to find it well-written and entertaining, despite being a love story. Michael hunts down the young woman, and must use her to get her brother to sign with his company. Michael meets with the brother only once, and is shocked at how much the siblings resemble each other. The young author is quite shy and insists on his sister taking care of the details. Michael is hesitant; Modesty's beauty and charm is quite a distraction, but has to agree with the author’s demands, in order to publish.
The book is a major success and Michael throws a surprise party in celebration, but when the author arrives and is recognized by society as Modesty, in disguise, the truth is revealed that she, in fact, has no brother, and it was really she that had written the manuscript.
Though romance was budding between them, the stunning revelations threaten to tear them apart. The book, however, is so successful, that Michael is forced to once again hunt down Modesty and convince her to publish the next book. Is the manuscript the only thing Michael is interested in, or is he searching for his own tale of love?
