To Love a Highland Rogue

Heart of a Scot Series, Book 1

A lively writing style and detailed story lines are the mark of this truly excellent writer.~Kathryn LeVeque-USA Today Bestselling Author

She’s determined to end her betrothal, but he must make her his at all cost.

A Scottish lass determined to end her betrothal.

As an infant, Mayra Findlay’s hand was pledged in marriage. So closely has her virtue been guarded, she’s never been permitted a beau—has never even flirted with a man. However, after a chance encounter with a dashing rogue who sets her pulse and imagination cavorting, Mayra initiates a scheme that’s sure to force her affianced to call off their union.

The laird who must make her his at all cost.

Until Logan Rutherford, Laird of Lockelieth Keep, inherited a near bankrupt estate, he had no intention of wedding the lass he was betrothed to as a wee lad. Now he needs Mayra’s remaining dowry to save his beloved Lockelieth. However, before they exchange vows, he’s determined to know just what type of woman he’s reluctantly taking to wife. So he assumes his cousin’s identity; a decision that soon has him snared in a tangled web of deceit.

Caution: This historical romance contains one rakish fiery-haired Scot accustomed to getting his own way, a lass who’s fed-up with men dictating her life, and stubborn gelding with a superior attitude.

Besides, his family has already selected his perfect duchess: a poised, polished, exquisite blueblood.

But one enchanted night…
A chance encounter reunites Jules and Jemmah, resulting in a passionate interlude neither can forget. Jules realizes he wants more—much more—than Jemmah’s sweet kisses or her warming his bed.

Brette: Intentions Gone Astray

Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper, Book 3

How many times should a man propose before finally giving up?

He thought his adventures were over.

A rogue reluctantly turned rector, Alexander Hawksworth, prefers soirées to sermons and parties to prayers. Though impoverished, he seizes every opportunity to escape parish duties, preferring to hob nob with London’s finest–especially after the precocious and petite Brette Culpepper arrives in Town. When he unexpectedly inherits an earldom, he’s determined to make her his countess. Until he’s accused of murdering the previous earl.

Then she burst headlong into his life.

New to Society, Brette adores the whirlwind social scene, the stream of invitations, the slightly-sensual verbal sparring with the devilishly attractive, much too witty, and oh, so unsuitable Mr. Hawksworth. But her fairytale existence crashes to a halt when rumors circulate she’s a peer’s illegitimate granddaughter, and a newly appointed guardian emerges, intent on forcing her to wed an elderly degenerate.

Time is against them as Alex struggles to clear his name and deliver the woman he loves from an unthinkable fate.

Caution: This book contains a rector too sexy for his own good, a match-making, meddling miss who finds herself in one conundrum after another, an endearing portly Welsh Corgi, and a troupe of well-meaning, interfering cousins and sisters

Scandal’s Splendor

Highland Heather Romancing a Scot Series, Book 4

She can see the future. Dare she tell what she knows?

A determined Scottish lady
Seonaid Ferguson, a lady of Craiglocky Keep, is through with the London Marriage Mart. After learning she has the second sight, the haut ton attempts to exploit her abilities. Even though it means she condemns herself to spinsterhood, Seonaid sets a desperate course to rid herself of her gift turned curse. As she rushes home from England, a snowstorm strands her in a crowded inn with the last man she ever wished to see again. A handsome French baron who once thought her a courtesan. And just her misfortune, only he stands between her and certain harm.

A desperate French nobleman
Jacques, Monsieur le baron de Devaux-Rousset, ventures to Scotland to oversee his new investment; a silver mine near Craiglocky. Only a handsome profit will save his family’s destitute estate in France. But when the mine is beset with one problem after another, Jacques must instead search for an heiress to wed. He certainly should not be falling in love with the lovely, spirited sister of Laird Ewan MacTavish, a lass whose dowry is insufficient to restore his ancestral home. Nor should he consider, even for a moment, her risqué, but tempting scheme to rid her of the second sight.

A danger most dire
Matters are torn from their hands when a dangerous adversary vows to expose Seonaid as a witch, just as Jacques’s problems at the mine escalate into deadly violence. Is it by chance, or a dark design, that both of them are beset at once …? Dare Jacques and Seonaid throw caution aside and forge a future together?

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]Her Scandalous Wish

A Waltz with a Rogue Novella, #3


A marriage offer obligated by duty; an acceptance, compelled by desperation.

Scarred from a fire, at two-and-twenty, Philomena Pomfrett is resigned to spinsterhood. But to ease her dying brother’s fretting, she reluctantly agrees to attend a London Season to acquire a husband. If she fails, when he dies, with no family and no money, her future is perilous. Betrayed once, Philomena entertains no notions of a love-match.

Newly titled, Bradford, Viscount Kingsley, returns to England after a three-year absence. When he stumbles upon Philomena hiding in a secluded arbor during a ball, believing she died in a fire he doesn’t recognize his first love. Yet something about her enthralls him, and he steals a moonlit kiss. Caught in the act by Philomena’s brother, Bradford is issued an ultimatum—a duel or marry Philomena.

Bradford offers marriage, but Philomena rejects his half-hearted proposal, convinced he’d grow to despise her. Then her brother collapses, and she’s faced with marrying a man who deserted her once already.

Caution: This Regency historical romance contains a jaded lord whom the ladies adore, a scarred spinster, willing to sacrifice everything for her dying brother, a feisty, portly cat, and an audacious aunt who say precisely what she thinks.

Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper Book 2

Night Owl Reviews Top Pick

Is his protecting his honor more important than winning her heart?

Intrepid and outspoken…

Dragged to London for a Season, Blythe Culpepper is dismayed to learn her guardian has enlisted the devilishly attractive Lord Leventhorpe–the one man she detests–to assist with her Come Out. Since their first encounter, hostile looks and cutting retorts have abounded whenever they meet. Still, she cannot deny the way her body reacts when he’s near. So perhaps it’s no surprise that upon overhearing another woman scheming to entrap Tristan into marriage, Blythe risks all to warn him.

Haunted by childhood trauma…

Tristan, the austere and controlled Marquis of Leventhorpe, usually avoids social gatherings. So why, against his better judgement, does he agree to aid his closest friend in presenting the Culpeppers to the ton? Might it be because one particular Culpepper stirs more than his interest? Blythe taxes him to his limits with her sharp wit and even sharper tongue. Yet, he cannot deny the beauty fascinates him.

However, when a past enemy comes calling, using Blythe to settle old scores, Tristan must decide if protecting his reviewertoppick2trrtoppickshonor is more important than winning the heart of the woman he has come to love.

Caution: This book contains a nobleman with a dark past, a strong-minded miss who is willing to cause a scandal if it means she can leave London, a spoiled, aging Welsh Corgi with digestive disruptions that can clear a room, and an entourage of goodhearted sisters and cousins whose antics land them in conundrum after conundrum.

Virtue and Valor

Book Two in the Highland Heather Romancing a Scot Series

2016 RONE Nominee

Can love unite a reluctant earl and a disenchanted beauty?

Bartholomew Yancy never expected to inherit an English earldom and had no intention of marrying. Now, the Earl of Ramsbury and last in his line, he’s obligated to resign his position as England’s War Secretary, find a wife, and produce an heir. Only one woman holds the least appeal: Isobel Ferguson, an exquisite Scotswoman. Brought to560e6012b01e1 Scotland to mediate between feuding clans, he doggedly woos her.

Disillusioned with men pursuing her for her attractiveness, rather than her unusual intellect, Isobel has all but abandoned any hope of finding a husband in the Highlands. Not only does she believe Yancy no different than her other suitors, he’s a notorious rake. She’s been told he’s practically betrothed. Therefore, his interest in her cannot possibly be honorable, and so she shuns his attentions.

When Isobel is mistakenly abducted by a band of rogue Scots, Yancy risks his life to rescues her. To salvage her compromised reputation, her brother and father insist she marry him. Yancy readily agrees, but Isobel—knowing full well she’s fated for spinsterhood by refusing his offer— won’t be coerced into marriage.

Can a beautiful spinster trust love again? Especially if the same man asks?

Olivia Kingsley didn’t expect to fall in love and receive a secret marriage proposal two weeks into her first Season. However, one dance with Allen Wimpleton and her fate is sealed. Or so she thinks until her eccentric and ailing father announces he’s moving the family to the Caribbean for a year. Distraught at her leaving, and unaware of her father’s ill health, Allen demands she choose—him or her father.

Heartbroken at Allen’s callousness, but thankful he’s revealed his true nature before she married him, Olivia turns her back on their love. The year becomes three, enough time for her broken heart to heal, and after her father dies, Olivia returns to England. Coming face to face with an embittered Allen, she realizes she never purged him from her heart, and once again the flames of passion ignite. But is it too late for their love?

Caution: This humorous historical Regency romance contains a dashing, pessimistic rogue, a strong-minded heroine with a temperament as fiery as her red hair, an audacious aunt who says precisely what she thinks, and an uppity villainness who gets her comeuppance at last.

To avoid the scandal and disgrace, she escapes to the estate of her aunt and uncle, the Duke and Duchess of Waterford. When Angelina learns she is with child, she vows she’ll never trust a man again.

A privileged English lord.
Flynn, Earl of Luxmoore, led an enchanted life until his father committed suicide after losing everything to Waterford in a wager. Stripped of all but his title, Flynn is thrust into the role of marquis as well as provider for his disabled sister and invalid mother. Unable to pay his father’s astronomical gambling loss, Flynn must choose between social or financial ruin.

When the duke suggests he’ll forgive the debt if Flynn marries his niece, Flynn accepts the duke’s proposal. Reluctant to wed a stranger, but willing to do anything to protect her babe and escape the clutches of the madman who still pursues her, Angelina agrees to the union.

Can the earl and his Scottish lass find happiness and love in a marriage neither wanted, or is the chasm between them insurmountable?

The Earl’s Enticement

2015 RONE Finalist

Golden Aspen Historical Category Finalist

Amazon Kindle Bestseller

Would you seek revenge against the woman who falsely imprisoned you?

Adaira Ferguson is a fiery, unconventional Scots. Though gently-born and the sister of a viscount who’s also a laird, she wears breeches, swears, raises horses, and at almost twenty, has no more desire to marry than she does to follow society’s dictates of appropriate behavior. She trusts no man with the secret she desperately protects.

Abused as a child, Roark Marquardt, The Earl of Clarendon, is haunted by the scars on his back and his father’s cruelty. That, along with his brother’s traitorous activities and his dead wife’s infidelities, has turned Roark into a man who rigidly adheres to propriety, holding himself and those around him to the highest decorum standards. Betrayed once, he’s guarded and leery of all women.

Mistaking Roark for his brother, a known spy, Adaira locks him in her keep’s dungeon. Infuriated he’s been imprisoned, Roark vows vengeance. Once she realizes her error and releases him, he sets about transforming Adaira from an ill-mannered hoyden to a lady of refinement. He succeeds only to discover, he prefers the free-spirited Scottish lass who first captured his heart.

Amazon Kindle Bestseller

Knowing they’d hate you, would you deceive the person you love to protect them?

Heiress, Yvette Stapleton, finds herself married to a man she met once, two years ago—only she never said, “I do!”

Yvette returns to England, desperate to find security and peace after her parent’s deaths and her stepbrother, Colin’s, attempted rape. Leery of fortune-hunters, she would rather remain unwed than risk being trapped in a loveless marriage.

Yet even in England, safety eludes her, for Colin has followed her. Ewan McTavish rescues her on London’s docks, and though she doesn’t at first remember him, she’s often dreamt of him. With reservations she accepts his offer to take her to Craiglocky for protection.

During their journey, a storm forces them to seek shelter in an unsavory inn. Yvette is in danger of being ravished until Ewan exploits his knowledge of Scottish Canon Law to declare her his wife—without a ceremony. Already half in love with Ewan, she agrees to the subterfuge, thinking his declaration is only a ruse to protect her. She is infuriated and broken-hearted when she discovers she is legally wed, believing he’s tricked her into marriage for her wealth.

Though it’s been two years since the Napoleonic Wars ended, Ewan McTavish, Viscount Sethwick and Laird of Craiglocky, is still seeking the traitor in England’s War Office. He’s determined to catch the mastermind who has eluded him for six years.

He is equally determined to protect the woman he can’t forget; the woman he fell in love with when they met at her cousin’s wedding. Sent to escort Yvette to her cousin’s, he doesn’t tell her that her stepbrother is a known spy, or that Ewan has unwittingly drawn her into deadly international espionage.

Ewan doesn’t regret claiming her as his bride in an irregular Scottish marriage, because since her return to England, he’s wanted to make her his own. Though he performs the duties required of his English title, his true passion lies with his Scottish clan. He’s ready to settle down and take his place as Laird of Craiglocky with his reluctant bride.
