“Diana Cosby is superbly talented.”
—Cathy Maxwell, New York Times bestselling author
 
In battle-torn Scotland, a castle’s mistress awaits her groom, a warrior she has never met . . .
 
Lady Gwendolyn Murphy’s fiancé has finally arrived at Latharn Castle, but she expects no joy in their introduction. Gwendolyn is well aware of Bróccín MacRaith’s cold reputation. Yet from first glance, she is drawn to the intimidating stranger. Impossible! How could she be dazzled by such a callous man?
 
Little does she know, Bróccín is dead. The man Gwendolyn believes to be her intended is actually Sir Aiden MacConnell, a member of the Knights Templar and her enemy, masquerading as the earl to gain access to the castle. His soul is dedicated to God and war; he has no time for luxuries of the flesh. But Gwendolyn’s intoxicating beauty, intellect, and fortitude lures him to want the forbidden.
 
With the wedding date quickly approaching and the future of Scotland at stake, Aiden gathers critical intelligence and steels himself for his departure, vowing to avoid an illicit liaison. But a twist of fate forces him to choose—move forward with a life built on a lie, or risk everything for the heart of one woman?

Book 5
AN IMPULSIVE ACT. . .

Lady Rois Drummond is fiercely devoted to her widowed father, the respected Scottish Earl of Brom. So when she believes he is about to be exposed as a traitor to England, she must think quickly. Desperate, Rois makes a shocking claim against the suspected accuser, Sir Griffin Westcott. But her impetuous lie leaves her in an outrageous circumstance: hastily married to the enemy. Yet Griffin is far from the man Rois thinks he is—and much closer to the man of her dreams. . .

AN IRRESISTIBLE OUTCOME. . .

Griffin may be an Englishman, but in truth he leads a clandestine life as a spy for Scotland. Refusing to endanger any woman, he has endured the loneliness of his mission. But Rois's absurd charge has suddenly changed all that. Now, with his cover in jeopardy, Griffin must find a way to keep his secret while keeping his distance from his spirited and tempting new wife—a task that proves more difficult than he ever imagined. . .

"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…

Together of the first time, Diana Cosby's MacGruder Brothers series!

His Captive

Alexander just wants to avenge his father's murder, not to become entangled with the enemy. But his desire to keep Lady Nichola, his English captive, with him, in his home--in his bed--unwittingly makes her a target for zealous Scottish rebels.

Nichola is trapped--by her powerful attraction to a man whose touch shakes her to the core. Unwilling and unable to resist each other, can Nichola and Alexander save a love that has enslaved them both?

His Woman

Isabel Adair is the last woman Duncan MacGruder wants to see again, much less save. Three years ago, Isabel broke their engagement to become the Earl of Frasyer's mistress, shattering Duncan's heart. But with a promise to Isabel's dying brother, he is compelled to rescue her.

Isabel betrayed the man she loved to save her father, but every moment she spends with Duncan reminds her how much she sacrificed. Though he despises her, Duncan cannot withstand the desire that has grown wilder with time. Now, the two wary lovers must confront both the enemies hunting them, and the secret legacy that threatens their very lives...

His Conquest

Linet Dancort will not be sold. But that's essentially what her brother intends to do--trade her like so much chattel. Seizing any opportunity to escape her fate, Linet escapes with a rebel prisoner trapped in her brother's dungeon.

Seathan MacGruder is surprised when a beautiful Englishwoman creeps to his cell and offers him his freedom in exchange for safe passage to the Highlands. The only thing more dangerous than the journey through Scotland is the desire that smolders between these two fugitives...

His Destiny

Emma Astyn, an English mercenary, can charm an enemy and brandish a knife like no other. Charged with befriending an infamous Scottish rebel, she assumes the guise of innocent damsel Christina Moffat to spy on him. But as she gains the dark hero's confidence, she realizes they share a tattered past, which distracts her from the task at hand. . .

Sir Patrik Cleary MacGruder is driven by duty and honor, not heroics. Rescuing Christina is a just matter of obligation for the Scot. But there's something alluring about her fiery spirit, even if he has misgivings. Together, they'll endure a perilous journey of love and betrayal...

His Seduction

When Lady Rois Drummond believes her father, the Scottish Earl of Brom, is about to be exposed as a traitor to England, she must think quickly.
