Imprisoned within her own room, Cassandra Elliott swallows her fear long enough to plan her escape.  Her half-brother, a Galloway laird, threatens to marry her off to the highest bidder, or see her locked up in an asylum.  A storm, a runaway horse, and a gentleman intent on her rescue challenges her patience, but her cruel half-brother catches her before she can cross the Solway to freedom.

Captain Ross Graham is determined to forget the pain of a lost love by distancing himself from London with his search for his unknown Scottish family.  A storm sends him seeking shelter, but a woman on the run changes his plans.  How can a gentleman escape hanging when he's accused of abduction in a country not his own?

If Cassie and Ross join forces against a tyrant, will they find what they're each seeking, or risk everything for desire?

Cassie is a brave heroine with the perfect amount of sass to keep the Captain on his toes.  Ross, always the gentleman, embraces his humor in dealing with the headstrong Cassie, but will he ever love her?

For those of you who have enjoyed Joanna Maitland's books for as many years as I have, you'll be pleased to know that the BRIDE OF THE SOLWAY is the story of Ross Graham who appeared in MY LADY ANGEL.

This well crafted novel by Joanna Maitland appeals because it's quite easy to visualize crossing Scottish lands as a woman in the early 1800's.  The secondary characters enrich the overall affect of the story, adding a touch of humor in the right places.  Well-paced dialogue amongst lush depiction of the times makes the BRIDE OF THE SOLWAY a most enjoyable way to spend an evening dreaming of far away places.

Be sure to visit Joanna's website for tidbits about the research for the BRIDE OF THE SOLWAY that will delight your historical soul.  Released by Mills and Boon in Aug 2007, this novel is available in North America from Harlequin in September 2010.
