Une lady en haillons - Julie Garwood

Par jujube le 11-10-2010 Editer
jujube
Sidéré, Harrison MacDonald contemple la jeune fille qui se tient devant lui. Seigneur, c'est le sosie parfait de Lady Agatha ! La même beauté ensorcelante : de hautes pommettes, des yeux d'un bleu tirant sur le violet, de souples cheveux blonds qui ruissellent sur ses épaules... Quoique la courbure des lèvres soit plus sensuelle encore... L'avocat jubile : il vient de retrouver la fille de Lord et Lady Elliott, dans ce village perdu du Montana ! Pour s'assurer de l'identité de cette ravissante personne, Harrison a recours à une ruse. Il feint d'être un " pied-tendre ", risque sa vie dans une bagarre de saloon et... ça marche ! Mary-Rose prend sous sa protection ce cow-boy maladroit mais au charme incontestable. Voici bientôt Harrison installé dans le ranch des Clayborne. Mais la belle a quatre frères, qui ne semblent guère disposés à laisser un intrus s'ingérer dans la famille. Manifestement, les Clayborne dissimulent un secret...

Description en VO :

No one ever knew what kind of strays, from animals to weary travelers, Mary Rose Clayborne would bring home next.

Sometimes her four brothers? runaway slave Adam, ax-pickpocket Douglas, gunslinger Cole, and con man Travis -- wondered whether her boarding school education did a lick of good now that their beautiful, impulsive little sister was back in Blue Belle, Montana.

Of course, everyone in town knew better than to mess with the Claybornes. The brothers, four of the toughest hombres in the West, had once been a mismatched gang of street urchins. But they had found an abandoned baby girl in a New York City alley, named her Mary Rose, headed West, and raised her to be a lady. Through the years the Claybornes had become a family, held together by loyalty and love if not by blood -- when they suddenly faced the crisis that could tear them apart.

That crisis came to town with Lord Harrison Stanford MacDonald. In his fine clothes, he looked every inch a dude. Mary Rose figured that if she didn't interfere, this handsome Englishman would get himself killed, so she took him home to the Clayborne ranch to ask her brothers to turn him into a cowboy. She didn't suspect MacDonald was a chameleon, not the greenhorn he appeared to be. He'd prove fast with a gun, quick with his fists, and capable of commanding the Claybornes's respect -- if not their trust. He'd also soon be desperately in love with Mary Rose. She returned his affection blissfully and wholeheartedly...until MacDonald revealed a secret that challenged everything she believed about her love, herself, and her life.

Now Mary Rose's search for identity and meaning would begin, sending her to England, to the family she lost long ago. Her soul hungered for the freedom of the American West, but she was being drawn away from all she cared about by the need to know her past...and by her uncertain but still potent love for MacDonald. Torn between conflicting loyalties, Mary Rose wasn't sure who she really was, or where she belonged...questions that could only be answered if she listened to the truth within her heart.

1879. In Blue Belle, Montana, everyone knew better than to mess with the Claybornes. The brothers had once been a mismatched gang of street urchins -- until they found an abandoned baby girl in a New York city alley, named her Mary Rose, and headed west to raise her to be a lady. They became a family -- held together by loyalty and love if not by blood -- when suddenly they faced a crisis that threatened to tear them apart....

Trouble came to town with one Lord Harrison Stanford MacDonald. Armed with a swagger and six-shooter, he cut a striking figure -- but it soon became apparent to Mary Rose that he was too much of a gentleman to make it in her rough-and-tumble town. She asked her brothers to teach him the basics of frontier survival, which he acquired with ease. And soon he possessed a deep and desperate love for Mary Rose. She returned his affection wholeheartedly... until MacDonald revealed a secret that challenged everything she believed about herself, her life, and her newfound love. Now her search for identity and meaning would begin, raising questions that could only be answered if she listened to the truth within her heart....
