FORBIDDEN LOVE

Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she's been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown's most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal--and a bold rescue--land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.

UNDENIABLE DESIRE

As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he's not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire...and desperate for more. With Davina's secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can't live without.

RAVISHED BY A HIGHLANDER

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The first installment in Quinn's Children of the Mist series deftly combines historical fact and powerful romance. In 1685 Scotland, Lady Davina Montgomery is hiding at St. Christopher's Abbey, hoping no one will discover her true identity. When soldiers attack, highlander Rob MacGregor, heir to a clan chief, risks his life to save Davina from the burning building. She remains both stoic and secretive, but the shared dangers of their journey across Scotland and their burgeoning attraction slowly encourage her to open up. There's much more than just sizzling sensuality: history buffs will love the attention to period detail and cameos by real-life figures, and the protagonists embody compassion, responsibility, and unrelenting, almost self-sacrificial honor. Quinn's seamless prose and passionate storytelling will leave readers hungry for future installments. (May)
