WARRIOR TOO ELUSIVE TO CAPTURE
is a Scottish Laird who lives in a world of Druid magic and ancient
customs, hand fasted to the sister of his rival clan, MacDougall.
Alasdair thought he was doing the right thing trying to bring peace
to the region. But he is murdered on the eve of his wedding. Not
willing to accept his death, his mother, a Druid priestess, performs
a geas to keep him alive. But something went awry because, as the
last word of the geas was spoken, Alasdair is trapped in time where
he wanders the earth for centuries. The only one who can bring him
back home is his betrothed. He has given up on ever finding her until
she walks into his office in twentieth century Manhattan.
WOMAN TOO STRONG WILLED TO TAME
Coira Ainsley is a happy-go-lucky
young woman living in twenty-first century Manhattan. Her job as a
travel agent takes her all over. She loves the work she does and is
excellent at it. That is until she follows her client into his office
and finds herself in the fourteenth century at Inveraray Keep in the
Highlands of Scotland. At first, Coira thinks a prank is being played
on her until she sees the giant, wearing nothing but a kilt and a
studded leather strap across his massive chest approach her. Not one
given to swooning, Coira finds herself welcoming the darkness that
come over her as she loses consciousness, without learning that the
naked giant is her betrothed from another time… another place. Will
she give in and accept what has been pre-destined or will she fight
to get back to the life she knows and loves?
alongside his two brothers, Garvin Campbell of Clan Campbell is
content to remain in the shadows. After all, he’s lived most of his
adult life as a Knight Templar, and that requires him being in the
shadows, not seen or heard. “Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed
Nomini tuo da gloriam; (Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto
thy Name, give glory).” That was the rule of the Templars until
they were forced to disband at the request of King Philip IV "the
Fair" of France.
of the Order's members in France were arrested and tortured. However,
Scotland did not get involved in the arrests and prosecution of the
Knights. There was no recognized king of the Scots, and with the
Bruce having already been excommunicated, the Roman church had little
say in Scottish politics, so Garvin returned to his clan to use his

Helen is thinking about is falling in love with a Campbell, and a
Knight Templar at that. She is aware the Templar Knight has taken a
vow of abstinence, so when Garvin Campbell comes to her clan to
deliver the decree from Robert the Bruce, Helen is unprepared for the
connection she immediately feels for the knight. She dismisses it as
butterflies at meeting a knight, but fate has other plans for her and
Garvin, as he becomes her reason for living and he forgoes his
training of remaining in the shadows as he surrenders to love.
Something in his stance
must have alerted her to the trouble she could be in, and she opened
her mouth. Garvin didn’t know what she intended to do. He covered
her mouth with his in a kiss that was as hungry as it was desperate.
After a good minute, he withdrew his lips and stared into her eyes.
He wasn’t surprised to see her staring back at him, her beautiful
blue eyes as round as saucers. He had frightened her.

For long minutes, Garvin
fought the sexual hunger her closeness provoked. The strength of his
reaction left him speechless. She was so beautiful, so reckless, her
passionate spirit cried out to him.
Not wanting her to fear
him, he moved away. She remained standing in the same spot a good
minute before she ran to her horse and mounted with one leap. She
took off with the same reckless abandonment she had displayed when
she had arrived. The fates help me, he wanted her so
badly it almost brought him to his knees.
