Description
A rogue nobleman, a rescued lady, and revenge undone by romance all play a part in New York Times bestselling author Joan Johnston's irresistible novel of best-laid plots, delicious deception, and unexpected passion. Two years have passed since Josie Wentworth was bought from the Sioux for a gold watch and whisked back to England by Marcus Wharton, the Duke of Blackthorne. When Marcus breaks his promise to return Josie to America, she ends up as a maid in the home of his charming but neglected nephews. Once Josie's long-lost family finds her, however, the suddenly wealthy heiress sets out to save the two boys from their indifferent uncle--and teach the duke a lesson in honor. Learning that Marcus is seeking a rich American bride to save his estate, Josie plots to catch his eye--certain he'll never recognize the beauty she's become as the ragged captive he rescued. But Josie doesn't wager on her marital charade taking a tender turn, as the nobleman she's despised for years proves to be a very different man than she's imagined. And there's no denying his passionate caresses, as she falls deeper under the spell of a husband determined to claim her heart. Praise for Blackthorne's Bride "[Joan] Johnston's gloriously dramatic twelfth Bitter Creek novel, the fourth installment in her Mail Order Bride subseries, whisks readers across the Atlantic. . . . [This] page-turner is replete with romantic angst, sizzling sex, and the promise of an enduring love." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Second chances, marriage of convenience, revenge, reconnection, and redemption . . . Blackthorne's Bride is another winner from Joan Johnston that gives readers a delicious story of love, laughter, forgiveness, and family." --Smexy Books " Blackthorne's Bride is a sweeping tale that takes you from the Wild West . . . to Regency England. [It's] a feisty and surprisingly enticing romance that takes you on an adventure through the city streets of London and the countryside." --Addicted to Romance "Riveting . . . Johnston excels at descriptions, peppered with period details that make this book a picturesque reading experience." --Buried Under Romance The passionate Westerns in Joan Johnston's Bitter Creek series can be enjoyed together or separately, in any order: TEXAS BRIDE * WYOMING BRIDE * MONTANA BRIDE * SINFUL * SHAMELESS * BLACKTHORNE'S BRIDE * SULLIVAN'S PROMISE
