A royal plot leaves an innocent woman in the crosshairs of a vicious witch hunt at the court of King James.
"Passion, intrigue, a falsely accused witch and a tormented mercenary hero...Theresa Meyers is a fresh and welcome new voice in romantic fiction! Immensely satisfying." —New York Times bestselling author Brenda Joyce
Twice a widow and now suspected of witchcraft, Sorcha MacIver must find a man who can overcome the curse that haunts her, or burn at the stake at the hands of her own clan.
Mercenary Ian Hunter thought marrying her would be easy money and a way to escape Scotland, and his treacherous brother who stole his first bride. But neither could foresee Sorcha being a pawn in a deadly play for Scotland's throne by King James' cousin, where witch hunts are merely the opening gambit, and a trial judged by the king himself heralds a bloody end.
For fans of The CW's Reign, the intrigue continues at the court of the son of Mary Queen of Scots.
...an exciting tale in which treachery and intrigue abound. In this time of witches, mercenaries and political agendas, Meyers has created great characters and set them into motion in a fantastic plot.

To say I lead a double life is putting it mildly. Everything about me could be a contradiction. City girl and country girl: I was the city girl who grew up in a small town, literally. We moved from San Jose, California, where my biggest kick was shopping with my friends and ice-skating at the indoor rink when I was 13, to a 75-acre sheep ranch on the edge of the small town of Sutherlin, Oregon, which had a smaller population for the entire town than the congregation at my church in the Bay area. My high school graduating class was under 100 people.
The writer who was journalist, publicist and novelist: I never intended to either write books or be in public relations, they both sort of happen as an extension of my love of writing. My experience in the publishing industry is varied. I started out writing on the school newspaper in junior high, more as a dare by my boyfriend when I wanted to prove that anything he could do, I could do just as well. From the moment I saw my first article in print, I was hooked. My first short story, “My Mother Unusual in a Normal Sort of Way” was published by Merlin’s Pen in 1987. I wrote for the paper all through high school and into college. Then I worked at a daily newspaper where I became the “messenger of death” from the day editor to the night editor . . .and I was too afraid that the cliché kill the messenger might turn into a reality, so I quit, got married to my high school sweetheart at 19 and started college, focusing on mass communications. I began dabbling with a story in my head, but even after paying for a Writers Digest Course, didn’t manage to finish it and stuck it away. I started work in public relations for a big corporation and then for the largest agency in Arizona. Meanwhile the writing bug wouldn’t shut up.
A dear friend, (Cherry Adair, love her books) asked me to do some publicity work on her upcoming book and I agreed – but told her, I don’t publicize books. From that one incident, a new business was created. It morphed into Blue Moon Communications, a public relations firm focused on promoting fiction authors, which is best know for getting their clients selected as two of the seven picks of the Kelly Ripa Book Club on LIVE! With Regis and Kelly. (You can find me at my day job at www.bluemooncommunications.com.) Now I work two jobs, publicity and writing the books, well, three if you count being a mom.
