Guardian of the Isles

Enchanted by the Highlander:

He meant to rescue the beauty, instead she saved him.

Stolen by the fairies as an infant and finally returned to the human realm by his clan, Keiran MacLeod has cultivated a wall of aloofness about himself. To hide his differences from years in a magical realm, he focuses his attention on managing his brother, the laird’s, many estates. But when he risks his life to save the alluring Rosalyn de Clare from an attack by the English and heals her with magic, the temptress destroys his ability to remain detached from society and romantic entanglements.

Reluctantly traveling to Scotland to force-marry an ambitious English nobleman determined to occupy the Scottish Highlands, Rosalyn de Clare, is injured in a battle. Rescued by a handsome Highland warrior, Rosalyn now has a new fear—losing her heart. Keiran is unlike any man she’s ever met, and his sorrow and loneliness call to her to heart.

Keiran fears bringing Rosalyn to Dunvegan Castle. Their countries are on the verge of war, but a mock marriage may be the only path to ensure her safety as enemies gather close.

A Little Highland Magic:

To have a future, she must face her past…

Half human, half fairy, Aria traveled to the human realm seeking safety with her family, the powerful MacLeods where she is welcomed and accepted as a warrior. But Aria fears her happiness will be short lived if they discover her inadvertent role in their beloved mother’s death and the kidnapping of their infant brother, Kieran, by the cruel fairy king. Aria longs to right the wrong by rescuing Kieren but traveling to the fairy realm is dangerous and potentially a betrayal, for she must use the legendary Fairy Flag and its one last miracle to barter Kieran’s release. 

Graeme Duff and his ancestors have served as flag bearer and protectors of Clan MacLeod for centuries. It’s his duty to guard the Fairy Flag, and when the beautiful, fierce, and intriguing Aria proposes using the flag to negotiate Kieran’s freedom, Graeme suspects treachery. He determines to accompany her, vowing to ignore the passion she evokes.

Can two independent warriors learn to trust? Or are they risking the destruction of everything they know and love?

To Claim His Highlander’s Bride:

Destiny claims they are mortal enemies, but their hearts say otherwise.

When Rowena MacLeod falls in love with the son of her family’s greatest enemy, her laird brother refuses to grant her hand in marriage until Marcus MacDonald can provide for his sister. Marcus, now penniless after being disowned by his clan, sets sail to seek his fortune as a privateer. Rowena waits faithfully for her beloved, but on the day Marcus returns, she’s kidnapped by a vengeful MacDonald.

Marcus lost many men while seeking his fortune, and he’s determined to make amends by sharing his wealth with their families. Believing he can now no longer marry, Marcus refuses to pay Rowena’s ransom, instead offering to take his cousin to Uamh Oir, the Cave of Gold, and relinquish any treasure found. When Rowena escapes, she insists Marcus marry her and take her aboard his ship. With their plunder, she’ll make a new life for herself far from him and her family—provided they don’t consummate their marriage.

As danger surrounds Marcus and Rowena, can they resist the love and desire that’ve been tangled up in family duty and betrayal?

As Elizabeth tries to sort out her feeling for her enemy, danger and treachery loom when her clansmen accuse Lachlan of sorcery. In a time when witches are hunted with fanatical zeal, Elizabeth must choose between forgiveness and love, or a chance at revenge at the end of the hangman’s noose.
