Nothing but time on her hands...

   An awkward first date with a quantum physicist ends not with a goodnight kiss but a science experiment gone wrong that send them both hurling back in time.  Stranded in the past with only a fading hope that she’ll ever make it home, Kate takes a job as a maid to pass the time and ends up with more than she bargained for. 

   Brandon Ryder, the Earl of Harrowby, is a far cry from any man the 21st century had ever produced.  He’s commanding, austere, aristocratic, true, but he’s also smart, caring, funny and … magnificent.  To Kate, who’d never imagined all those qualities could exist in a single man, his appeal is undeniable. Irresistible.

Nothing but time can tear them apart

   Brand has spent a lifetime bound by the rules of Society and one of those rules is that a gentleman doesn’t trifle with the help.  However, Kate Kallastad is no ordinary employee. 

   His lovely new maid challenges him at every turn, astounding him with her forthright manner, plain speech and by her astonishing audacity to treat him not as an Earl of the realm... but as a mere mortal man. 

   Tragedy forces Kate to make a decision that impacts both of their lives. When the time comes for Brand to make a choice of his own, where will time and love lead him?

She might have loved Vin, but he had never loved her back.


Vin is a man tormented by the past and, with little hope that her dreams of true love will be fulfilled, Moira instead offers him the friendship he so desperately needs as he integrates himself back into a normal life.


He thought he’d never truly live again…


After years as a prisoner of war, Vin MacKintosh returns with a scarred and battered soul. Beset by guilt and nightmares from his years of torture and torment, he must readapt to a world where everyone he knew is a different person and the world a vastly different place. While everyone else seems to constantly compare him to the man he was, he cannot help but turn to the one person who gives him encouragement and motivation to move on.


As his best friend, Jason MacKenzie’s, younger sister, Vin has known Moira her entire life, her letters during the war provided him comfort and understanding. True friendship. Now that he is back, he needs those things more than ever. However, Vin finds he cannot continue to look at Moira merely as a friend and little sister any longer. He cannot help but see her as a woman…and one too desirable to resist.


Moira makes him feel alive again, but he knows it cannot last. While lust can do nothing but ruin the friendship he desperately needs, Vin knows that the truth about her brother’s death would destroy Moira’s affectionate for him forever. Plagued by his guilt, he pushes her away when he needs her most.


What will he do when he realizes that what he feels is more than merely a question of lust?

He planned to get rich the old-fashioned way...

When he stumbles upon Kitty Hayes, he’s certain he’s found the perfect wife. She’s full of a fire and spirit that challenges him. She’s also a wealthy heiress. But Kitty is a married woman! Can he wait it out until she finds her 

freedom?

To her surprise, he’s not at all what she expected but rather a caring and affectionate man. But Kitty knows a scoundrel man like Jack will never realize the man he could be—the loving husband she’d always hoped for and the father her daughter needs. A man she can trust.


  That doesn’t mean she can’t want something more from him, so Kitty negotiates a deal with Jack. The money he needs to save his earldom if he becomes her lover in return. It’s a 

bargain that gives Jack everything he needs, but he soon discovers that it doesn’t give what he truly wants.

"Diana Cosby is superbly talented." —Cathy Maxwell, New York Times bestselling author

Bound by honor to save a country they love...

The bastard daughter of the French king, Marie Alesia Serouge has just one chance at freedom when she escapes her captor in the Scottish highlands. A mere pawn in a scheme to destroy relations between France and Scotland, Marie must reach her father and reveal the Englishman’s treacherous plot. But she can’t abandon the wounded warrior she stumbles upon—and she can’t deny that his fierce masculinity, Scottish or not, stirs something wild inside her.

Colyne MacKerran is on a mission for his king, and he’s well aware that spies are lying in wait for him everywhere. Wounded en route, he escapes his attackers and is aided by an alluring Frenchwoman...whose explanation for her presence in the Highlands rings false. Even if she saved his life, he cannot trust her with his secrets. But he won’t leave her to the mercy of brigands, either—and as they race for the coast, he can’t help but wonder if her kiss is as passionate as she is.

With nothing in common but their honor, Colyne and Marie face a dangerous journey to safety through the untamed Scottish landscape—and their own reckless hearts...

Praise for the novels of Diana Cosby

"Cosby gives you it all—passion, danger, lush history and a touch of magic. Excellent reading." —Hannah Howell, New York Times bestselling author

"A sexy new voice in historical romance. Scottish historicals have a bright new star (in Diana Cosby)."—Sandra Hill, USA Today bestselling author

"Diana Cosby writes wonderful historical romance!"—Susan King
Surely, she’d gone completely mad. Claire Manning can’t imagine what she was thinking when she decided to help the escapee from her company’s lab but after seeing him caged like an animal, her humanitarian compulsion cannot be overridden – even by the arrogant, scowling eighteenth-century Highlander Hugh Urquhart turns out to be.
His entire life has been taken away from him and Claire understands the pain and torment of loss. She understands the desperation she sees in his eyes and is prepared to do whatever it takes to secure Hugh’s freedom and future. What she isn’t prepared for is the ruggedly handsome Scot she finds under the layers of grime and blood caked on him. Nor is she prepared to feel so much more than mere compassion for his suffering.
Not once in Hugh’s entire life has he been taken for a savage or been argued with and commanded about like a lackey as often as he had by his savior from imprisonment.
It was he who commanded.
He who men yielded to.
However, for this woman who had saved his life, Hugh is willing to concede that he doesn’t know everything, that he might need some small amount of help in navigating his way through the alien world he has been unwillingly dragged into. With inexplicable trust, Hugh hands over the reins of his future to Claire – or Sorcha as they would have called her in his world. A woman unlike any he has ever met. A woman of intelligence, wit, courage and startling passion buried deep beneath her bonny exterior.
On the run, Claire and Hugh hide away from the agents pursuing them but cannot hide from the undeniable desire that ensnares them and both must face their pasts, the loss and heartache that plagues them if they hope to discover that there is a true time and place for every Highland laird.
From the author of My Highland Bride—hailed by Sandy Blair as “an entertaining time-travel story packed with spice, humor, fantasy, and nonstop adventure”—comes a sensual novel featuring a wolf-shifting chieftain who travels centuries to modern-day Scotland to tame his one and only.
 
Cursed to live forever with neither wife nor child, Ronan Sutherland has watched all he cherishes turn to dust—more than once. For hundreds of years, he’s been trapped behind the mists of Loch Ness, hoping to identify the one woman who is prophesied to break the spell. Now, at last, the fates have aligned, and he’s being sent into the future to fetch her. After a single glimpse, Ronan knows he’s been waiting all his life for this passionate woman.
 
Unlike her time-traveling sisters, Mairi Sinclair is perfectly content to remain in the present. As a hospital nurse in Edinburgh, she cherishes the opportunity to put her gift of healing powers to good use. But everything changes the morning a mysterious wolf darts in front of her car. Touching the wounded creature’s tawny coat, a tingle surges through her. Yet when she returns with aid, Mairi is shocked to find instead a man with broad shoulders and fire in his eyes—a man who tempts her to unleash the animal within.
