As they set about the enjoyable task of ruining her reputation, Hawk and Mirabelle soon learn that rebellion never tasted so sweet.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
03/24/2014
Excessively lush writing and an overabundance of one-sentence paragraphs mar the first in Welfonder’s Scandalous Scots medieval romance series. Lady Mirabelle MacLaren is desperate to avoid marriage to Sir John Sinclair, a two-faced suitor. She proposes that Sorley the Hawk, a bastard warrior known to dislike Sinclair, ruin her in order to scare him off. Neither Sorley nor Mirabelle realizes that the other remembers their attraction-filled first meeting more than a dozen years earlier, which ended badly. Their plan of public disgrace forms the main story line, which improves once the lewdness turns to love. A secondary plot involves Sorley’s antipathy toward his heretofore unknown natural father, and a plan to meet the man after Sorley completes a mission as part of the King’s mysterious Fenris Guards; the long-winded setup leads to a meager payoff.

Meet the Author

Sue-Ellen Welfonder is a Scotophile whose burning wish to make frequent trips to the land of her dreams led her to a twenty-year career with the airlines.

Now a full-time writer, she's quick to admit that she much prefers wielding a pen to pushing tea and coffee. She makes annual visits to Scotland, insisting they are a necessity, as each trip gives her inspiration for new books.

Proud of her own Hebridean ancestry, she belongs to two clan societies: the MacFie Clan Society and the Clan MacAlpine Society. In addition to Scotland, her greatest passions are medieval history, the paranormal, and dogs. She never watches television, loves haggis, and writes at a 450-year-old desk that once stood in a Bavarian castle.

Sue-Ellen is married and currently resides with her husband and Jack Russell terrier in Florida.
