Training men to be ruthless soldiers is a skill at which Highlander Teàrlach MacGregor excels. After he rescues a ward of the king, the beautiful Lady Madeline Crawford, the fierce warrior begins to yearn for a cottage of his own in the Highlands, with the sweet, delicate Madeline as the mother of his bairns.

Madeline begins to see a side of Teàrlach that nobody else does. The strong, silent Highlander takes her to her first fair, teaches her to read, and bestows upon her a passionate kiss—her very first. But Madeline is informed that she is betrothed to another with the blessing of the king, making her and Teàrlach’s love forbidden.

Teàrlach vows to make Madeline his, even if that means defying the king.

Each book in the Ladies of Scotland series is a STANDALONE story that can be enjoyed out of order.

A Welsh Chieftain’s Daughter, An English Warlord, And A Love That Defies Their World

› › ›

It is the year 1277, and the fiercely brave Enith ab Owen must leave Wales and all she loves to go to King Edward of England as guarantee to the peace of her father’s clans. There, she meets the warlord Hugh fitz Alan, Edward’s mighty right hand man and close friend, a man determined to subdue the fiery Welsh beauty. But Enith has bathed, shrouded and buried five beloved brothers brought home from battle and, however strongly the handsome, war scarred English lord draws her, she is determined to never do so again. Yet beneath her defiance rages a fierce desire for Hugh, and she breathes a sigh of both relief and regret when she is returned to her beloved father and clan. Then Wales rises once again, and the tide of battle delivers her to Hugh’s bed, but he cannot hold her.

Magnificently matched in passion, they are sundered by loyalty, Hugh to the royal cause, Enith to her beloved father and clansmen. Bitterness and violence rise between them and not until they each are brought to their knees by grievous loss will they be free to turn to each other in love’s proud and triumphant surrender.

A Tale of Thorns and Honey is a well researched and extraordinary saga of love and war set within the turbulent conflicts of Celtic Wales and feudal England, a saga that is mirrored in the story of the two passionate, willful people trapped within them. Kate O’Donnell brings thirteenth century provocatively alive in an intensely moving, luminous love story that will sweep you into the tumultuous history of the era and the lives of a multitude of diverse and intriguing characters you will never forget.

A gripping tale you don’t want to miss!
