Description

  • A Romance Writers of America RITA finalist for best Long Historical Romance
  • Broken Dreams and Second Chances...

    Honed by danger and haunted by the past, Lord Michael Kenyon finds it easy to risk his life for his country's sake. But in the shadow of Waterloo, he faces a far more dangerous threat—the loss of his heart to the beautiful battlefield nurse who saves his life, yet can never be his.

    Called a saint for her virtue and selfless courage, only Catherine Melbourne knows the tragic flaw at the core of her spirit. In Michael Kenyon, she sees the strength and kindness she craves, yet for honor's sake she must conceal her love and send him away. Even when freed from her empty marriage, she conceals the truth because of the bleak knowledge that she can never again be any man's wife.

    Then fate offers Catherine a fortune, a title, a heritage for her daughter—if Michael will impersonate her husband on a visit to a wild Cornish island. Reluctantly he agrees to the masquerade. But what begins as a simple journey leads them into a shattering vortex of danger and betrayal—and a fiercely passionate love that can no longer be denied.

    PRAISE FOR SHATTERED RAINBOWS:

    "An extraordinary reading experience. Darkly erotic and sizzling with sensuality, this love story dazzles the senses and steals your heart away. Romance just doesn't get any better than this." —Melinda Helfer, Romantic Times, 4.5 GOLD rating

    "Rarely have I read a book about two such wonderful characters...Catherine is a beautiful, intelligent woman with integrity and Michael a noble, moral hero...Although many historical romances have used the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars and the Battle of Waterloo, Putney's description of the actual battle is electrifying...Books of quality such as Shattered Rainbows can only raise the standard for all romance novels. This is one of the best books of this year or any year." —Dede Anderson, TheRomanceReader.com

    "Ms. Putney makes me proud to be a romance reader. She writes beautiful stories about mature people with complicated lives and emotions that draw you in and will not let you go." —Lenore Howard, Old Book Barn Gazette
