The Tempting of Thomas Carrick

The Tempting of Thomas Carrick

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens returns to Scotland, where destiny and passion intertwine...

Thomas Carrick is determined to make his own life in the bustling port city of Glasgow, far from the demands of the Carrick clan, eventually with an appropriate wife on his arm. But disturbing events on his family's estate force Thomas to return to the Scottish countryside—where he is forced to ask for help from the last woman he wants to face. Thomas has never forgotten Lucilla Cynster and the connection that seethes between them, but to marry Lucilla would mean embracing a life he's adamant is not for him.

Strong-willed and passionate, Lucilla knows Thomas is hers—her fated lover, husband, protector, mate. He is the only man for her, just as she is his one true love. How can he ignore a bond stronger than reason and choose a different path? She's determined to fight for their future, and while she cannot command him, she has enticements of her own to wield when it comes to tempting Thomas Carrick.

    After the teaser that Laurens gave us in in the holiday novella she released in December 2014, I was definitely ready for Lucilla and Thomas's story. I was not disappointed! I love how it started out ...
