Blurb:

Her hero. Her savior.  And her undoing. Rourke Quinn found her on the storm-tossed shores of  Cape Breton. The woman in his arms was unconscious and bleeding. And Rourke knew her. Annie MacIntosh was the  town outcast—a wild thing. And as untamed and beautiful  as the Atlantic itself. This storm was just the thing to keep  Rourke as close to her as he dared….

Annie grew up fiercely independent. She was a survivor, needing no one and nothing. She cut herself off from the town and society, relying only on her raw need for survival. But Rourke unleashes a hunger she never knew existed. This man—this stranger—satiates an appetite she hardly dared imagine. It’s more exiting and more turbulent than that storm that rages outside. And Rourke has only one chance with the wild girl he can’t live without…before losing her to a world he can never be part of…

Dear Reader,

One of my favorite things about writing books for Harlequin is the opportunity to explore interesting new places.  When I decided to do this latest quartet of Mighty Quinn books, I was excited to have the chance to choose four very different settings, in various parts of the world.  Of course, the final book had to be set in Ireland, but for this book, I played with the settings of Central America and Africa before deciding on the island of Cape Breton in Canada.

With its vibrant Celtic culture and old lighthouses, I knew right away that this was the perfect place for a Qunn to fall in love – with the countryside and the heroine!

So, for all my Canadian fans, this one’s for you.  I hope I’ve represented this beautiful corner of your country well.  I think it’s the perfect place for Rourke and Annie to find their happy ending.

Enjoy!

Kate Hoffmann
