I love to read books, edit books for authors, and participate in the wonderful blog tours for smaller authors who are still working on getting into the mainstream! I also tutor S Korean students online while being a single mom to my 12 year old daughter with Williams syndrome :) Perfect life!

the fourth MacLeod son, Donnan MacLeod does not have to take on the
responsibilities his older siblings do. He is free to keep his
business private. As a privateer he sails the channel looking for
smugglers. Very elite smugglers.
not until he returns to Skye for his mother's birthday when Donnan
begins to lose control of his life. And it's all because of a woman,
the one woman he's loved since childhood. The woman he desires above
all others - that is should he ever think of taking a wife.

to find out what it is Donnan is hiding. Never before had they kept
things from each other, but Rosalind is convinced he's keeping
something huge from her.

away in the back of Donnan's coach, Rosalind changes their lives
forever. The adventure begins...
what in the name of God have you done?” he asked. “What are you
doing in the back of my carriage?” Rosalind
squared her shoulders, trying not to think what a miserable picture
she must look. She summoned the lie she had concocted for just this

the castle alone."
brows drew together. He surveyed her from top to bottom, taking in
every inch of her seedy appearance, shaking his head. “Come
into the inn with me, Rose. We can speak inside. After you've bathed,
of course." He smirked at her, extending his arm. Rosalind
took her time bathing. She knew Donnan was angry with her stealing
away. She had to make him understand. Finally,
she finished and rejoined him in the sitting room of the suite he'd
gotten them. A mouthwatering meal graced a table. Her stomach
reminded her she hadn't eaten since she was on Skye. "Come
and join me," he said as he rose from a chair he sat in. "Thank

He was not happy. His face told her so. He
sat across from her, his eyes intently watching her. "Rose, do
you realize what you've done by stowing away in my carriage?" "Of

would you have me do, Donnan? Sit and wait on you for another year?
I'm sure when the time came, you would have an excuse not to come
back and accept your duties." "That
is exactly what you were suppose to do, Rose! You were suppose to
wait for a year," he bellowed. "I would never purposely
disobey anything Rory orders of me. Never. He is not only my brother,
he's my clan leader. When the year was up, I would have come back for
you, Rose. Now you've changed all that. Now we must marry." She
said nothing for a moment. She speared a piece of chicken and ate it.
If Donnan wasn't so angry with her, she could sit right here and
enjoy this plain feast. "Why can't I simply spend the year with
you? I can help you, I'm sure. After that, we can return to Skye and
marry just like Rory wishes." "Surely
you jest. I cannot have you live with me and follow me around for a
year like some tap room wench. You're a lady, Rose. Your reputation
would be ruined. No, we'll do the proper thing and marry at Gretna
