A riveting tale of family, love, and betrayal.
Left jilted at the altar by his bride, Rory MacLeod, the Duke of Skye and chief of the MacLeod clan finds himself becoming the subject of unsavory gossip.
Marriage to a respectable young lady of impeccable breeding is the only way Rory can hope to silence the gossips.
Licking his wounds, he returns to London for the upcoming session of Parliament and Season. He brings with him his sister Lily. It will be her first season and one which Rory intends to find a bride of his own. He doesn't have to look far.
Victoria, the Duke of Hargrove's daughter, catches more than his eye the moment he meets her. She is everything his duchess needs to be. She is smart, beautiful and devoted to Rory. Not even his darkest secret can sway her.
The bliss of married life is ripped apart by betrayal of the worst kind. His sister is kidnapped and forced into a marriage with only one purpose. Money. Even worse is who is behind it all.
With his own reputation and that of his family and clan at stake, Rory must carefully negotiate his sister's return without the world finding out about his secret. Not only could it bring shame to everyone he holds dear, it would mean his ruination and worse.

Rory slowly and thoroughly made love to her. It was an act of love. His undying love for her.
Afterwards they held on to each other in a contented silence. After a while, her breathing became even. He peered down to find her sound asleep. His own eyes heavy from their lovemaking and his admission to her, he fell asleep holding her.
Some time later, he awoke. He could tell by the light coming into the cottage it was late afternoon. Soon it would be dark. He kissed her on the forehead to wake her.
"The rain seems to be letting up," she said as she stretched like a cat in his arms.
"We'll wait a while longer. Just to be sure. I wouldn't want you to get sick from riding in the rain," he said.
"No, we don't. We can use the time by you letting me ride you astride."
He tried to look shocked. "Where did you learn such?"
"You'd be surprised," she replied as he withdrew from her body.
He pretended to let her take charge and lay on his back. He watched her as she straddled his hips and impaled herself on his cock. Her eyes never left his. He pushed himself further inside before lifting her hips up slowly then slamming her down on him. She began to do it on her own. His hands found her breasts, and he sat up to suckle her.
"You like that, my love?"
He wasn't going to last long this time, and he pressed her tightly against him until he held her down as he came once again.
"Hell, lass. What are you doing to me? I've never loved a woman this many times in such a short period of time."
"You feel so good. We finish, and I want more of you."
"As do I."
"Rory?" she whispered in his ear. "I love you."
"I love you as well, Victoria. I'll be honest; it came as a surprise, but I think I began falling in love the moment you agreed to marry me."
"You accepted me for the man I am. Despite everything."
"You're a good man, Rory MacLeod," she whispered. "And a damn fine lover."
"I find I want you all the time, lass. I walk around with almost a continual cock stand."
"Maybe we can steal away for more afternoons like this."
He nodded. "We'll make sure we do."

I've always been a creative individual. Writing is just a facet of that creativity...
My careers in public relations in and around the entertainment industry, photography, editing, artist management, modeling and special event planning all elevated my passion for writing, not to mention gave me a treasure trove for story lines.
I write women's fiction; contemporary romance (as Jamie Salisbury) and historical romance (as JR Salisbury) which is ever evolving. I am fortunate enough that writing (and marketing of said product(s)) is my full-time job, although I always have one or two other projects going at the same time.
I now live in a suburb of Atlanta. Some of my other interests include photography, equestrianism, reading, and of course, travel.
I sincerely hope my writing will entertain, enlighten, and inspire others to pick up the pen and pursue their own dreams. I love to be contacted by readers, writers, and history buffs.
