Four romances of immigrant women finding love in America.
Hid Scottish War Bride
As a motorcycle dispatch rider in London during World War II, Maggie Cameron faced her share of dangerous situations. Yet none filled her with as much dread as the thought of moving to America to join her G.I. husband, John MacPhee, after having been separated for six months. Except for the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, everything in Lilac is different from her beloved Scotland. How long before John discovers his Scottish bride is completely unsuited for life as a banker’s wife?
Life in the orderly MacPhee household has been completely upended since John’s return from the war. His father’s sudden injury puts John in charge at work and at home, leaving little time for battle scars to heal. Will Maggie forgive him for dragging her away from the country she loves and into his chaotic life?

She doesn’t count on the handsome Englishman turned American who is determined to make sure she stays out of Five Points. How can Aileen find the man who did her family wrong if she has a constant watchdog?
Samuel Westfield felt an immediate attraction for the feisty Irish woman and will do anything to keep her safe, even if it means giving her a job and room and board. When Aileen goes against the help he’s offered and finds her life threatened, Sam gives up his most precious possession to save her.
Can these two see that love is the most priceless possession?
