Victoria Morrow’s unforgettable romances have received
glowing praise for their sensuality, their flowing emotion
and warm wit. Now she enchants readers with a tale of
love and abandon on the American frontier, in her newest,
most luscious novel . . .
When Lady Elizabeth Ashton stepped down from her
stagecoach in Bannock Montana, her flaming rich red hair
and sapphire blue cloak were as out of place as a rare blossom
in the middle of dusty Main Street. Born with a noble English
name but left near-penniless as an orphan, she was
determined to regain her squandered inheritance the Red
Swan ranch, the daring venture of her eccentric grandparents.
But America’s untamed West was worlds apart from England's
Ashton Manor and from the wealthy Lord she’d reluctantly
arranged to marry ...
To the surprise of Beau Shannon, the devilishly handsome
new owner of the Red Swan, the elegant foreigner had also
left behind her delicate pride; she was willing'to pay an
outrageous price to win back part of her family's fortune!
Rugged but gentle-hearted, Beau gave in to Elizabeth's sweetly
willful desire. Together they joined in a partnership that
promised a deeper passion $151; a passion suddenly challenged
before they could claim a glorious future! from the publisher
Finding herself penniless, Lady Elizabeth Anne Ashton has no choice
but to leave England and travel to her grandparents' Montana ranch,
She is infuriated to learn her grandfather has lost his valuable holdings
to the notorious scoundrel, Beau Shannon. From the first moment in
the saloon when Elizabeth confronts Beau, insulting his integrity and his
intelligence, these adversaries are on a collision course.
Beau offers to let Elizabeth win back half the ranch in a game of strip
poker (oh, what a delightful game it is!). When she is down to the bare
essentials, Beau lets Elizabeth win.
Before the Civil War, Red Swan had belonged to Beau's family. It was
stolen by an unscrupulous banker. Elizabeth's eccentric grandparents are
happy to see the property back in Beau's possession.
Beau radiates sexual magnetism which Elizabeth refuses to acknowledge. She
Prefers to think she is having a bout of malaria instead of falling in love. But
as Beau attempts to teach her about ranching, she gets a few lessons in love.
Tempers are at an all-time high at the town's Fourth of July picnic when
Elizabeth fights over Beau and then goes to get her man and create some
fireworks of her their own.
Afterwards Elizabeth and Beau stalk each other like wounded beasts. Much
as she desires Beau, Lady Elizabeth Anne Ashton cannot marry a man as
wicked as Beau, and he will not settle for less.
Angel in My Arms has something for everyone: wonderfully diverse
characters, Indian lore, several secondary romances, and a hefty dash of
humor a hard-to-beat combination and a surefire winner for Victoria

1851 The United States of America was less than a century old, a raw nation of hungry

realize the goal of government by and for the people, the best hope for the future lay
in the seemingly impossible dream of a transcontinental railway.

the wilderness an avenging angel bent on justice. God might show mercy, but Jesse

Dory had begged to accompany her father on his trip west with the railroad. Never had
she imagined she'd be abducted, rescued by a wild man, forced to trek into the Sangre de
Christo Mountains and claimed in a primitive mating ceremony. When her longtime fiancé
finally showed up to whisk her home, Katherine was too bewildered to object, but would
she ever forget Jesse McCallum or the starlit night when her young body first knew his \

Victoria Morrow's THE EAGLE AND THE DOVE is a thrilling romance that takes the reader from the rough reality of the Old West to a more sophisticated way of life
back in the East. It is a colorful love story, in which two wonderful characters find love, but differences threaten to keep them apart. Thrilling action, exciting
surprises and a story filled with heart, made THE EAGLE AND THE DOVE a story that I just could not put down.
From the very beginning, the action is breathtaking. It quickly captured my attention as Jessie, the handsome hero, rescues the beautiful captive from the evil
men that kidnapped her. This is just the first of many breathtaking moments that I found throughout the book. Again and again, Jessie is forced to stand up against
overwhelming odds. Here is a wonderful character that lives by a code of honor and will fight for his beliefs. Jessie is a hero with a perfect blend of strength
and charm, making him someone that you want to love.
Together, Jessie and Katherine are fantastic characters that share a fiery passion. The problem is that they are from two very different cultures and obstacles
stand in their way to happiness. Throughout their struggles to decide what to do, these character touch the heart of the reader. In the end, it is a story that
makes you believe that true love can overcome all problems.
Victoria Morrow's THE EAGLE AND THE DOVE is a story that I will keep to read again and again. I look forward to other books from this author.
