Raine: The Reckless One...there was sin in his smile and wildness in his soul....

Raine Merrick's wild, reckless spirit had earned him time in a French prison. When a mysterious beauty gains his freedom only to betray him, Raine Merrick sets out for his father's castle on McClairen's Isle, seeking the treasure hidden within. But strange surprises await him in the Highlands. He never expected to find his deceitful angel masquerading as an honored guest. Or to want her with all the searing passion in his sinner's soul.

Watch for the crowning volume in the spellbinding McClairen's Isle trilogy, The Ravishing One, coming soon. And don't miss the first book in the trilogy, The Passionate One, available from Dell.

About the Author

While on a tour of Scotland in 1997, Connie Brockway fell in love. With the country. Since she was traveling with her husband, David, at the time, this was a good thing. She fell in love with clear, cold lochs and pine-cloaked mountains, red stag and single malt whisky, and most of all the proud and sometimes tragic history of this wonderfully evocative country. Once home, she found it impossible to do anything but write a romance set there. So she began what ended up being The Passionate One, the first novel in the McClairen's Isle series, using as its backdrop the majestic north coast of Scotland. She hopes she can bring to her readers some of the Highland magic she so enjoyed.

Also the author of My Dearest Enemy, which won the Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award, All Through the Night, As You Desire, and A Dangerous Man, Connie Brockway loves to hear from readers.
