Foreword from RUTHLESS, a Work In Progress

I almost never share my unedited work, but in this time where people are at home and possibly feeling a little out of sorts, I thought you might be interested to see what I’m working on. RUTHLESS is the first romance novel in a new series that will progress through the rise of Robert the Bruce.

“Enya assessed him like a woman would a piece of fine cloth. "Rugged land for a rugged man.”
Amy Jarecki, The Highland Henchman

“The softness of her touch, the emerald eyes gazing into his when they held hands and circled, attacked his defenses and flung them aside as if he were a helpless lad. If she'd come at him with a dagger, he might have let her stab him in the heart.”
Amy Jarecki, The Highland Henchman

“I would like to know the given name of the woman who can kiss me so passionately she makes me want to climb to the roof tops and roar.”
Amy Jarecki, Return of the Highland Laird

“With a resounding bang, the door burst open. A crazed man gaped at her with piercing and anguished blue eyes. Grunting, he staggered inside and collapsed face first to the floor.

Max launched into a cacophony of barking, racing around the man as if the spaniel had made a conquest.

A cold wind chilled the cottage while Jane tried to steady the poker with both hands and point it at the burly form. He didn't move.

Max whimpered and licked the man's face. Then the dog curled up beside him.

Jane gaped. "Merciful father.”
Amy Jarecki, Return of the Highland Laird

“Another sharp pang stabbed him in the ribs and made him jolt with a grunt.

"Are you in pain?"

Alex smirked. 'I've been bludgeoned within an inch of me life, ye expecting me to jump up and dance a jig?”
