From New York TimesBestselling author Cynthia Wright comes a thrilling new romance of 16th century Scotland!

A PROUD HIGHLANDER
Darkly handsome Ciaran MacLeod revels in his life as a Highland warrior. He spends his days training with his comrades at Duntulm Castle on the far cliffs of the Isle of Skye, and taking his pick of smitten lasses.

However, Ciaran harbors a secret, passed down from his dead mother, that has caused him to become deeply suspicious of love. He’s grateful he doesn’t have to worry about taking a wife, for the castle is efficiently run by Violette, a plain young Frenchwoman who covers her head with a gable hood and reveals nothing of her own past.

SECRETS REVEALED
Violete Pasquiére fled to Scotland to escape a vengeful stepfather. She feels safe on the remote Isle of Skye, disguised in drab clothing and and tending to these strong clan MacLeod men who would be lost without her care. The potent attraction Violette feels for Ciaran MacLeod is just one more secret she keeps.

But a threat to Duntulm Castle changes everything, and Ciaran’s elders propose that he marry Judith MacRae to bring additional lands and warriors to the clan. Rebelling against the efforts to control him, Ciaran proposes to Violette instead, setting in motion a passionate series of events that shake not only their future, but challenge their carefully guarded hearts...

WINNER of ROMANTIC TIMES Award for BEST BRITISH ISLES HISTORICAL ROMANCE!

~ Nathan Raveneau, son of Andre & Devon (Silver Storm) is known as "The Scapegrace" in Regency London for his rakish exploits and devastating good looks. He is also a sea captain with an estate on Barbados. To gain land near his enemy, Xavier Crowe, Raveneau agrees to act as protector to headstrong Adrienne Beauvisage - and keep her chaste until her 21st birthday.

Adrienne is both outraged and intrigued by the man who calls himself Nathan Essex. She knows little of the threats that lurk at the English castle of eccentric Lady Thomasina Harms... or of the daring that Raveneau, in his guise as Nathan Essex, must employ to keep her out of harm's way.

As the powerful attraction between them builds, Nathan is forced to abduct an unwilling Adrienne, boldly spiriting her away to his ship. In a rousing adventure that carries them from Regency England across the sea to magical Barbados, Nathan and Adrienne struggle against a compelling and passionate love while caught in a growing web of danger.

WINNER of the K.I.S.S. HERO AWARD from ROMANTIC TIMES MAGAZINE

~ 1814: Grey St. James, Viscount Altburne, has escaped from Napoleon's prison on the rocky isle of Mont St. Michel. Desperate and dangerous, he is a far cry from the rakish nobleman who broke hearts in Regency London.

In her uncle Nicholai's French chateau, Natalya Beauvisage is writing a novel. At 26, she is beautiful but hardly marriageable, for she is devoted to being an author. However, when a potently attractive stranger appears to hold her at knifepoint, Natalya thrills to a flesh-and-blood man. 

Grey must escape from France and Natalya longs to return to America, so they form an unlikely alliance, traveling together in disguise. Natalya is caught up in a passionate fantasy that surpasses any she could imagine, but Grey's heart is imprisoned by dark secrets that must be uncovered before he can love again...

I have debts to pay and secrets to keep. When someone threatens my life, I crash into him: Jackson Ludlow

The recluse billionaire of New York

Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.


So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money. 


We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding. 

I’m impatient and inexperienced. 


The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets. 

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.

The moment I looked into his eyes, I knew I was in trouble.

The second I heard his name, I knew I should stay away.


Our fathers were mortal enemies—Chicago crime bosses from rival families.


But that didn’t stop Leo Conti from pursuing me.

Being together was dangerous, reckless, and totally hot.

He wanted me. I wanted him.


What could possibly go wrong?
