Lady Evelyn Montgomery, only daughter of the Baron of Rayne, detests the thought of marriage and vows to never allow a man to control her. To escape the constraints of propriety, she steals away from the safety of the keep and stumbles across a plot designed to ignite tension between England and Scotland. When a mysterious hooded man steps in to save her, she must decide if he is friend or foe, and if he truly means to aid her despite his charm and the burgeoning attraction between them.
Hiding beneath his black cowl and blending into the night, Gabriel, a Shadow Guardian, is bound by honor and duty to protect the Baron's daughter at any cost. But Lady Evelyn is far from the delicate flower he anticipated. When he confronts her with his admiration, she remains steadfast in her determination that no man will possess her. He must convince her love can be more than possession before the traitor tears them apart and he loses her forever.

About the Author
Stick her in the middle of a chaotic home with two children, a hyperactive dog, and a camouflage wearing husband, and she can cook and clean with the best of them. But when the sun goes down and the children are nestled in bed fast asleep, she tucks away her pots and broom and like Cinderella she transforms. Her characters creep forth from the dark recesses of her mind taking their places in the castles and forests built from her words. No simpering heroines linger there with forlorn gazes turned to the horizon, waiting for their Prince Charming. They straighten their spine, arming themselves with blade and bow, prepared to do their part in defense of their honor and destiny. She breathes life into the women she believes our ancestors to be, showing how they lived and loved with passion and grace. Never bored by the tales still left to tell, she battles the ever sarcastic muse in her quest for romance.
