Mary Wine




Mary Wine has written over twenty novels that take her readers from the pages of history to the far reaches of space. Recent winner of a 2008 EPPIE Award for erotic western romance, her book LET ME LOVE YOU was quoted “Not to be missed…” by Lora Leigh, New York Times best-selling author.

When she’s not abusing a laptop, she spends time with her sewing machines…all of them! Making historical garments is her second passion. From corsets and knickers to court dresses of Elizabeth I, the most expensive clothes she owns are hundreds of years out of date. She’s also an active student of martial arts, having earned the rank of second degree black belt.

Mary Wine isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but they do have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from their feed.

“That will solve nothing, my lord.” His wife strode into the kitchen, stiff pride shining in her eyes. “I told you to keep her in hand.” Brodick glared at his cousin, wondering just when his life had turned inside out. Druce scowled at the sweet smile Brodrick’s wife cast toward him. He lifted his finger and pointed at her. “She bit me.”
Mary Wine, In Bed With A Stranger

“Come with me, sweet lass, and I'll make good on me promise to chase ye through the woods like a highlander." Broen spoke in a rich timbre laced with good humor. " Ye there...Lads, be sporting now and let me ravish this charming creature the way only a Scotsman can!”

“If you are wise, you will never forget that your heart is yours alone. It can be the greatest gift, but never can it be commanded.”

Highlander's Bride (Heart of the Highlander, #1) by Deborah Gafford
Highlander's Bride, by Deborah Gafford
Romance author Deborah Gafford’s Heart of the Highlander Series begins with this high-action historical romance. Alexander MacGregor returns home, disillusioned and weary after his service to his king. But his hardest battle of all may be with his own family. As next in line to become laird, his father gives him an ultimatum; wed a mysterious lass within five days or forfeit his birthright.

When Katherine Gordon is brought to the MacGregor stronghold and presented to a gruff, moody Highlander, whom she is told she must marry, she wants none of him. Vowing not to let his intelligence and handsome looks sway her wounded heart, she seeks to escape before she is forced to learn the treachery of a man's passion. But escape can lead to capture by a new enemy. And capture can mean death.

Highlander’s Bride is the first book in this captivating historical romance series. Set in 1502, in the highlands of Scotland, this beautiful love story transcends time and continents, bringing readers to a past when love, passion and romance blend with duty, valor, and honor.

Caine's Reckoning (Hell's Eight, #1) by Sarah McCarty
Caine's Reckoning, by Sarah McCarty (erotica)
he Hell's Eight is the only family he's ever needed, until he meets the only woman he's ever wanted...

Caine Allen is a hardened Texas Ranger, definitely not the marrying kind. But when he rescues a kidnapped woman and returns her to town, the preacher calls in a favor. One Caine's honor won't let him refuse. From the moment he beds Desi, Caine knows turmoil will follow. Desi might have the face of a temptress, but she also has a will of iron and while she needs his protection, she's determined that no man will control her again. They establish an uneasy bond, but it isn't enough for Caine. He wants all Desi has to offer. He wants her screams, her moans, her demands...everything. Yet there's still a bounty on Desi's head, and keeping her sexually satisfied is proving easier than keeping her alive.

Runaway (Florida Civil War, #1) by Heather Graham
"I accepted you as payment on a gambling table, because you're incredibly beautiful, and I want you for the same reason."

His smoldering gaze claimed her long before a poker hand made her his. Tara Brent knew she could never escape this dark and brooding stranger who promised her safety, with a price: marriage and life together in the lush, lethal wilderness of Florida. She didn't even know his name, only the promise of passion, and refuge in his arms.

Jarrett McKenzie swept his ravishing bride away from New Orleans to his remote Florida plantation, determined to uncover the desperate secret from which she ran. He couldn't tell her of his own Seminole roots—or open her guarded heart—until his former commander, President Andrew Jackson, declared war on the Indians, and a powerful enemy from Tara's past found his way to their door.

The Whip by Karen Kondazian
The Whip, by Karen Kondazian
Inspired by the true story of a woman, Charlotte "Charley" Parkhurst (1812-1879) who lived most of her extraordinary life as a man in the old west.

As a young woman in Rhode Island, she fell in love with a runaway slave and had his child. The destruction of her family drove her west to California, dressed as a man, to track the killer.

Charley became a renowned stagecoach driver for Wells Fargo. She killed a famous outlaw, had a secret love affair, and lived with a housekeeper who, unaware of her true sex, fell in love with her.
Charley was the first woman to vote in America (as a man). Her grave lies in Watsonville, California.
