Julianne MacLean

When a Stranger Loves Me

Book #3 in The Pembroke Palace Series
Release date: February 2009

From bestselling author Julianne MacLean comes a grand historical romance series set in the lavish palace of an English duke, where duty and desire collide.

I saved his life, and I had much to demand in return…

When a stranger washes ashore with no memory of his life or where he came from, Lady Chelsea believes her prayers have been answered. She need no longer fear poverty and heartbreak. To secure her family’s estate, all she needs is a child. Handsome and clearly noble-born, the mysterious stranger is perfect. She must simply visit his bedchamber and seduce him.

Chelsea expects him to be a skillful, generous lover, but once in his arms, she is overcome by something far more powerful than mere passion. Before long, she realizes she has fallen hopelessly, desperately in love.

Lady Chelsea’s plan has gone shockingly awry, and when his family arrives unexpectedly to claim him, she must ask herself if she is willing to do whatever it takes to cling to a happiness she never believed possible…and to make this stranger love her.
