Felicia Campbell is to be married in a fortnight to a brutal man who is three times her age. She has no choice but to flee, but Felicia’s bad luck turns worse, when during her escape, she is abducted by her clan’s worst enemy. Felicia must now pretend that she has no memory of who she is or ignite a war that could destroy all of those she loves and those she hates.

Rory Maclean returns from sea at the request of his clan. His older brother has disappeared, and the clan lacks leadership. He had escaped to the sea many years ago to get away from the legacy of hatred and bloodshed. But, with his clan in peril, he has returned hoping to make peace between the Mclean's and Campbell’s. His men, on the other hand, believing that he needs to produce an heir to safeguard the clan, steal him a bride; a spirited, beautiful lass who ignites a passion and reawakens a need in him that he may not be able to control. But you see, Rory is fighting another enemy other than the Campbells. A curse overshadows his world, and after marrying and burying two brides, does he dare take a chance on love and risk the life of another lass?

Rory and Felicia are a perfect pair. They compliment each other very well. He is stubborn; she is single minded. He will never marry; she wants love and children someday. He wants her gone. She wants to stay, but fears for his safety if she does. This is a wonderful romance. The sexual tension between Rory and Felicia simply enflame the pages. Both are afraid to act on their desires, but for different reasons. Rory doesn’t want the curse to strike again. Felicia doesn’t want Rory to find out who she really is because he will never love her if he knows her true identity.

Ms. Potter is a wonderful storyteller. Her stories really hit home with love, romance and adventure. The secondary characters of the story bring it full circle with loveable characters who will warm your heart as well as make you cry at times. Beloved Impostor is a perfect book to curl up with on a cold fall evening. Happy reading!
