Tagline: A murder, a mix-up, and a midnight missive make for one unforgettable Highland romance…

Blurb:

When a fiery, red-haired Englishwoman falls for the laird’s charming, off-limits son, their passion ignites a fire that threatens to engulf the clan.

Ronan Calder, eldest son of Clan Calder’s laird, is going to stay as far away from marriage as he can get. After losing his mother and beloved sister during childbirth, Ronan knows there is no way he could ever inflict such a fate upon any woman. Things get a little complicated when he meets the enchanting new scholar and mistakes her for his future bride. 

Adelina Matheson has every intention of becoming the first female scholar at Oxford, and the quick wit to prove it. The only thing she’s missing is permission to attend lectures. When the masters challenge Adelina to serve as advisor to a Highland laird in exchange for entry, she is left with little choice. She agrees to the challenge – surely she can manage such a simple task to prove herself.

Except that once Adelina arrives at Calder Keep, she realizes that nothing about her task is simple. She must battle her alarming attraction to the laird’s handsome son while enduring the laird’s beastly temper. The only other Englishwoman is also her competition for Ronan’s affection, and the entire clan is under threat of attack at the upcoming Samhain celebration. Can Ronan and Adelina put aside their personal troubles and save Clan Calder, or will they doom the entire clan?

EXCERPT:

She pressed herself so tightly against him that he could feel every curve of her, awakening a need he had long sought to avoid. He teased her lips apart with his tongue, greedily tasting her until she let out a sultry sigh. Ronan pushed the kiss deeper and deeper until it threatened to rob him of all sense.

Reluctantly, he finally pulled away, her fingers still laced in the hair at the nape of his neck. Those lips of hers were bright pink now, swollen and full after such a thorough kissing. He couldn’t fathom what he ought to say next, nor could he afford to contemplate what such a moment might mean over the coming days.

Her bright blue eyes, clouded with a desire to match his own, searched his face. She looked far too sad for a lass who was in the arms of a man.

TAGLINE: Duty is the essence of manhood.

BLURB:

Allys Stone would risk repute as a ruined woman to gain control of her life. Thorin Svenson would battle the most skilled knights in the realm to win her. Theirs is a love story of fairy tales and wild passion, a battle of wills as well as brawn.

Allys wants to choose her own husband, one who loves life and laughter as much as she does. One who considers her a partner instead of a possession. She has never had any choice but to live by her father’s decisions, and now he’s offering her as grand prize in a tournament.

Thorin must win the hand of a nobleman’s daughter to regain the wealth and position of his family. Consumed by guilt, he will risk his very life to win. Not even her attempts to sabotage his victory will get in his way.

EXCERPT:

Fanny waited until Paul had seated himself, then spread a cloth for herself along the perimeter of the glade and stretched out, prepared for a long wait.

Allys offered Paul a sample of one dish after another in an attempt to cool his affections. He prattled on and on, and after a while Allys let her mind wander freely, in search of Thorin Svenson.

She thought of that first night. She thought of it more and more of late. He had been gentle, even before he realized she was a maid. Despite her ignorance, she recognized his raging passion simmering beneath the surface. She had no doubt that the lovemaking they shared was a mere sampling of the pleasure he could deliver. She ached in her core at the thought of swiving him in earnest, of him pounding into her with gusto.

After a night of passion with her betrothed, Sir Geoffrey Longford, Lady Alyse de Courcy is eagerly looking forward to her wedding. But when Geoffrey is forced to marry another, a heartbroken and possibly pregnant Alyse finds herself in her own private hell. She must either gamble with her reputation or marry someone she does not love.

A reputed connoisseur of women, Thomas, Lord Braeton, has dallied with many ladies of King Edward’s court, although he has favored none. However, as Geoffrey’s best friend, Thomas has sworn to serve and protect Alyse, an oath now sorely tested when he agrees to marry her—in name only—to guard her reputation. Yet, as they grow closer, and Thomas discovers Alyse’s sweet but spirited nature, he comes to desire a marriage in truth. 

Can he overcome her memory of Geoffrey, or is Thomas doomed to burn with passion for a woman he can never possess?

EXCERPT:

She closed her eyes, willing herself to submit to this bombardment of her senses. Best to feel rather than think for thinking could do naught but lead to disaster.

When Thomas reached her shoulder, he lifted his head to speak gently in her ear, his voice low and alluring. “Sweet Alyse, shall we seal our betrothal with a kiss?”

She squeezed her eyes shut and gave a bare nod. The tender caresses and his beguiling tone were attentions she could cope with. A kiss, however…
