Laird of the Mist (MacGregors, #1) by Paula Quinn
Laird of the Mist, by Paula Quinn
PROTECTING HER WAS HIS PASSION


High-born though she is, Kate Campbell isn't afraid to draw her sword. When raiders strike, she rushes into the fray...and is lucky when a mysterious Highlander shields her from a deadly blow. Swept onto his stallion, she soon discovers that her rescuer is her clan's most hated enemy: Callum MacGregor, the man they call The Devil. Yet she cannot ignore his achingly tender touch or the way his fiery gaze leaves her breathless.


POSSESSING HER WOULD BE HIS PLEASURE


Callum MacGregor has taken many Campbell lives, but he's never saved one--until now. Mesmerized by this spirited lass, he wants her by his side, even if it means holding her for ransom. As his fingers graze her sumptuous curves and tangle in her unruly tresses, Callum realizes Kate Campbell is his most dangerous foe of all. For he can't make love to her without betraying his kinsmen and his honor...and surrendering his heart forever.

The Taming (Peregrine, #1) by Jude Deveraux
The Taming, by Jude Deveraux
England's most valiant knights paid court to wealthy Liana Neville, but only the infamous warrior Rogan Peregrine made no secret of his powerful desires. His very caress melted Liana into liquid fire, and she vowed to capture this manificent, wild man. Boldly the delicate beauty gave him her hand -- and Britain's richest dower. Yet he was bound to a bitter feud: for love betrayed, brothers killed, and ancestral land usurped. In Rogan's war-ravaged castle, Liana would lay her tender seige...to redeem his embattled spirit and win his untamed heart!

Hidden Fires by Sandra Brown
Hidden Fires, by Sandra Brown
In a Texas of cattle and railroads, family dynasties and ambitious schemers, Sandra Brown's classic historical romance brings readers a riveting story...

The moment preacher's daughter Lauren Holbrook walked into the Texas mansion, she suspected she had been tricked. Instead of becoming wealthy Olivia Lockett's secretary, the matriarch presented her with a scandalous offer: to marry, in name only, the Lockett dynasty's heir -- playboy rebel Jared Lockett. Lauren could not know Olivia's real motive, but she was achingly aware of her feelings for Jared. Now, in spite of terrible risks, she had to trust her reckless husband -- and fight to make their marriage as strong as her love.

“I am a cold hearted, ruthless bastard who sees what he wants and takes it. Is that not so?" He stepped closer to her, too close. His voice, no longer tender, was like the growl of a hungry wolf. "You think I don't want you." He ran his fingers over the pulse beat of her throat..."But I do.”

Cheers, Mary


Mary E Paula,
Thanks for friending me. I enjoy your writing and have read all of your books. Can't wait until Children of the Mist #4, Colin's story comes out. My eyes still get misty when I re-read Mairi's epligoue! sniff

Am I the only fan of epilogues??


Milton Esitubi Mary Anita And The Second Liberation In Kenya Consider reading this interesting book full of African passion and flavour, culture, social life and politics.

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Paul. You seem like an interesting person, as well as quite the prolific author, so feel free to tell me more about yourself. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
