'The Pride Of Lions'
by Marsha Canham
My Thoughts: I wanted to stray away from the usual suspects for this week's Recommendation. I dummy-proof searched "Best Historical Romance Novels", and came up with lists and web pages filled with wonderfully titles yet to be discovered by me. "The Pride Of Lions" was among the ranks and I just HAD to explore. On it's amazon listing, there were lots of positive feedback and wonderful 5 star reviews. The synopsis had me at go and the except was truly enjoyable. Having never read a Marsha Canham novel, I can't attest to her writing style, but reviewers far and wide have good things to say about this book."They were torn between pride and passion. . .
It was a boastful wager, a bold flirtation meant to win a proposal from the most eligible officer in His Majesty's Royal Dragoons. How was the spoiled and pampered Catherine Augustine Ashbrooke to know the handsome stranger with the brooding midnight eyes would see through her plot and make her the pawn in a dangerous game of his own?
United by a reckless game of chance. . .
Alexander Cameron may have won the highborn English beauty in a duel, but not even the lure of long-forgotten desires could keep him from his meeting with destiny. He had no choice but to carry his reluctant bride off to the Highlands, to a world of ancient blood feuds and a brewing rebellion-a world where fiery passion and breathtaking courage would prove that even legendary warriors could lose their hearts."Source[Read an excerpt: here]
