Description from

The secrets behind the wedding veil  For penniless widow Ainsley McBrayne, marriage is the only solution. She’s vulnerable yet fiercely independent, so shackling herself to another man seems horrifying! Until handsome stranger Innes Drummond tempts Ainsley to become his temporary wife.  Once married, Ainsley hardly recognizes the rugged Highlander Innes transforms into! He sets her long-dormant pulse racing, and she’s soon craving the enticing delights of their marriage bed. She has until Hogmanay to show Innes that their fake marriage could be for real…


Ainsley and Innes meet on a day that is upsetting to both of them and they go together for a coffee with some added encouragement of a dram or two of Scotch courage. As they discuss their individual problems they come up with a solution for both of them. They will have a short term marriage of convenience that should solve all problems. But falling in love wasn’t in the original agreement.

Ms. Kaye has woven disappointment, honor, lust, tradition, secrets and love into a top notch story. We admire Ainsley as she grows into the woman she wants to become and Innes as he finally realizes what is truly important.

This is my first discovery of a Marguerite Kaye novel. I will definitely be going back for more. I seem to be on a roll lately of finding new-to-me authors who are terrific. Yay!

  1. Dot, I only recently discovered Marguerite Kaye’s books through my friend Wendy Loveridge. I can also recommend NEVER FORGET ME, a series of three connected stories set during the World War 1. I have a number of books to read from her back list which Wendy has kindly loaned me.
