Overview

2013 Bronze Medal Winner - Global eBook Award - Historical Romance

The year is 1173. A remote fief in Northern England has suddenly been invaded by the Scots. Lord Duncan's lands are being pillaged and burned, and his only son is abducted by a ruthless band of Scottish knights. He leaves his castle to secure his son's release, leaving his strong-willed daughter Katriona behind. In his absence, a force of knights under the authority of Sir Morgan, known as the king's lion, seizes the castle, and are mistaken for the invading Scottish.

Feisty Katriona fights a battle of wills with Sir Morgan, the commander of the knights who have invaded her castle home. Held by his vows to the king, he can tell no one except Lord Duncan the nature of his mission. Intrigued by the unorthodox Katriona, Sir Morgan maps out strategies to capture her heart, yet she does not conform to any of his carefully laid plans, defying him at every turn. Believing him to be the enemy, she seems unable to truly love him.

When the murderous band of Scottish knights returns, accompanied by Katriona's brother, they descend upon the castle with claims that her father betrothed her to one of them, the vicious Bhaltair. Sir Morgan makes plans to defend Katriona and the castle, culminating in a dramatic battle that pits him against Bhaltair. Although Sir Morgan's battle with the Scots may yet be won, his battle for Katriona's love is another story.

Meet the Author

Lynne Marie grew up in South Carolina and has lived and worked in the coastal region with her husband for over 30 years. She started writing in the mid-1990s and states that she was inspired to write these novels. And while, at most times, inspiration is a small tickle in the back of your conscious or unconscious mind as you go about your daily life, hers was not like that at all. It was a wake you up from a vivid dream in the middle of the night demand. Lynne said, "I ask you-how do you say NO to that?" So came into being the opening scene of Lion's Lair. But with no formal training in creative writing and a family to raise, the learning curve and the uncounted hours of research took years. She soon discovered that she loved what she refers to as "spike history"-a brief time span, usually five years or less, in a very localized setting.
In Lynne's spare time, she enjoys working on large and small projects in a type of faux stained glass. She also loves to cook, especially Southern comfort foods, and has recently started collecting orchids. Some bloom, some haven't yet, but they all like the muggy summer heat a lot more than she does!

    I will admit, I was at first disappointed that Lynne Marie's new

    I will admit, I was at first disappointed that Lynne Marie's new book was not a sequel to The Seahawk's Sanctuary. I LOVE that novel! But when she released a very short sneak peek of Lion's Lair, I was intrigued. It sounded promising and I love the medieval period... Then mix in a knight who speaks with a Scottish brogue, so much the better! Well, I was NOT disappointed!!! Katriona is a real spite-fire and Sir Morgan is the perfect match for her. The passion as it builds between them will keep the reader turning the pages.

    I also liked the way Lynne Marie introduced the main characters' horses and a dog - they were more like pets. I've been around dogs all of my life, and I immediately fell in love with the wolfhound, Goliath...And, as in her last novel, there's enough history woven into the storyline to get a real taste of the time period.

    I highly recommend this this new novel as a MUST READ for everyone. I can't wait to see what she's going to write about next.
