Only for a Knight

A tale of forbidden love, sizzling passion, and all the wonder of the Scottish Highlands. 

It was beyond her control to resist him… 

After ten years of journeying about Scotland, fighting other men’s wars and battling a few demons of his own, roguish knight Sir Robert MacKenzie is finally heading back to Kintail, the vast Highland territory held by his warrior chieftain father, Duncan MacKenzie, the Black Stag of Kintail. Their parting was fraught, clan scandal and tragedy having driven Robert from his home. But past heartaches and angers are now forgotten and Robert wants nothing more than to embrace kith and kin, at last assuming his rightful place as future clan laird. But almost as soon as he crosses onto Kintail land, his homecoming plans are upended by a damsel in great distress…

Lass of the glens Mariana Mackay was on a mission to repay an unpaid debt for her dying mother. Nothing else would have taken her so deep into the heart of Kintail, putting her right in the path of the homebound knight. More than that, an accident along the way lands her in Robert’s arms when he rushes to aid her. As often happens in life and death moments, their passions quickly ignite – but Robert has sworn to accept a bride from a rival clan. Now he must rip open the wounds of the past, risking a feud and perhaps forever alienating himself from his clan – or he can follow his heart and claim the love of a woman who carries dark secrets of her own. As desire consumes them, the star-crossed lovers know that their only chance at happiness could destroy everything else they love.

 Mini – Excerpt


A lass of the glen...
“You know that I am not a lady.” She set her hands on her hips, hoped he couldn’t tell how her pulse raced. “We are worlds apart, the two of us.”

“And if I tell you it matters not a whit to me?” He stepped closer, so dangerously handsome in the soft candlelight.

“You can say what you wish - men always do.” She leaned her hip against the table. Something about his nearness made the floor seem to dip beneath her feet.

“I say my mind, lady.”

She frowned. “If you are not troubled by my low birth, there can only be one reason.”

“And so there is.” He leaned in and kissed her brow. “You enchant me.”
