After the crowning of Robert the Bruce, Sir James Douglas is sent to the Scottish borders to wreak havoc on those loyal to Edward of England. But his plans go wildly astray when Lady Ailish Maxwell’s brother is captured by her traitorous uncle. James has every intention of finding the lad but when Her Ladyship announces she’s joining the quest, he’s not about to let her go, no matter how beautiful her crystal eyes, or convincing her silver tongue.
And Ailish will not sit idle while her brother, the true heir to the Maxwell dynasty, is taken deeper into the enemy’s lair. After putting forth every ounce of reasoning she can muster, Sir James agrees to allow her to pose as his wife. But what she doesn’t count on is falling in love with the braw Highlander. And as they ride farther into enemy lands, they cannot ignore the intensity of the passion simmering between them—though it could very well destroy everything they have worked so hard to preserve.More info →
When Angus Og MacDonald, Lord of Islay agrees to harbor Robert the Bruce from the clutches of King Edward, he becomes an outlaw of the English crown. They sail to Ireland, seeking support from kin but are forced to flee for their lives. As Angus escapes, it is not a man he finds hidden in his birlinn. A wee wisp of a lass attacks like a screaming banshee with a battle axe in her hands. Then the wrath of God erupts in a violent storm, smashing the boat to smithereens. Now, Angus fights for survival, hell bent on saving them both.
Anya O’Cahan awakes half drowned in a tiny chapel on a deserted isle with none other than Fairhair, the man with the devil’s heart, the vile brother of the beast who killed her Da. Terrified out of her wits, she does everything in her power to escape the Highlander’s clutches. But Anya’s attempts are thwarted by the cunning, far too beautiful lord. Worse, Angus takes her before the King of Scots who seizes her as a political prisoner and thrusts her into the care of none other than Fairhair himself. Will this union of two hated rivals plagued by unwanted and uncanny attraction erupt in passion or war?More info →

Shivering, Emma scooted closer to Ciar. “Do you think ghosts live here?”
“Nay.” He snorted. “If they did they’ve been supplanted by the pigeons.”
She laughed at his humor as she felt his nearness, felt the warmth radiating off him. Would it be too audacious if she mentioned their kiss? Could she ask him if he enjoyed it?
What if he did not?
What if he didn’t even remember kissing her?
Goodness, she could be ruined merely by her thoughts.
But aren’t I already ruined?
After all, she’d ridden to Fort William with a lad she barely knew. She’d broken into a government fort and freed an important prisoner. And now she was in hiding with that very man. A braw, handsome, loving Highlander.
She’d been ever so fond of Ciar all her life. “Since I am ruined,” she blurted. “I’m happy it is with you.”
“I beg your pardon?” he asked as if she’d uttered a blasphemy.
“You cannot think for one minute Robert will be able to arrange my marriage after all I’ve done in the past two days.”
“If any man utters a word about ruination, he will face me.”
“No one need speak it. ’Tis a fact.” Emma almost smiled. What did it matter if she was ruined? She’d already known her destiny was to live out her days at Glenmoriston. In fact, this adventure was the most exciting time of her life. It might be the only exciting thing that would ever happen to her.
She tilted her face toward the sound of his voice. “I want…” Her stomach squeezed. What if he refuses?
“What do you want, lass?” he asked, his voice low, soothing, making her feel as if she could say anything to him.
Just out with it!
Her tongue tapped her upper lip as her skin tingled, especially her breasts. They felt as if they craved some forbidden desire smoldering deep inside. “Will you kiss me again?”More info →
