“The Marquess’s Scottish Bride” is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of “Emerald” by Lauren Royal.
From a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

England and Scotland, 1667

Jason Chase, the Marquess of Cainewood, doesn’t know the first thing about hunting outlaws, but he won’t let that stop him from bringing a murderer to justice. Disguised as a commoner, he takes to the road, where he crosses paths with a hapless Scottish lad—who turns out to be a lovely Scottish lass, and none other than the renowned bounty hunter Emerald MacCallum. Realizing they're after the same man and fearing Emerald may be in over her head, Jason resolves to keep her close…

But all Caithren Leslie wants is to be as far away from her new “protector” as possible. No matter how many times she informs him she’s just an ordinary country girl traveling to see her brother—and definitely not some Emerald woman pursuing a dangerous outlaw—the pigheaded Englishman will not see sense. The road is perilous, but accepting Jason’s protection may mean jeopardizing her urgent mission. Not to mention her sanity, her personal property, and worst of all, her heart.

PLEASE NOTE: This book is the SWEET & CLEAN version of “Emerald” by Lauren Royal. If you’d prefer to read the original book, which includes steamy love scenes and stronger language, look for “Emerald.”
