The Convict's Bounty Bride - Lena Dowling With historicals a bit thinner on the ground these days, I find myself trying just about any that come my way in hopes of discovering buried treasure.

The hero, James Hunter, has recently returned from Australia. He served a sentence for a crime he did not commit and in the process, managed to make his fortune. Now he is back in England to secure the hand of his promised bride, despite the taint of conviction that would otherwise make him a less than promising prospect.Lady Thea Willers isn't about to take news of her impending marriage lying down.
