High on the craggy cliffs of the medieval Dunnottar Castle live those who train predators to obey their commands. Falconers like Rabbie Graham have tamed the wild peregrine falcons to hunt for decades, but the hunter becomes the prey when the enemy arrives at the gate.
Catriona Dunn is the baker's daughter, just one of many people who come and go in the castle. When the dashing figure of the falconer and his majestic bird catch her eye, she is intrigued. A chance encounter brings them together one night, changing their lives forever.
United by a cause, the falconers of Dunnottar must fight to survive an invasion of their home and save the ancient regalia of the Scottish kings from the hands of their enemy.
About the Author
Diane Wylie is an identical twin, born in Philadelphia. She lives in Maryland now and is a hard-working, dog-and-family-loving, award-winning, Amazon best-selling author. Diane has been writing fiction since 2005, and her books fall into multiple genres including: ***Scottish Historical Romances: Diane's latest interests have moved to earlier time periods. She loves to research new eras and has embarked on a new series. It will consist of a series of novellas published for ebook and print. Book One: BESIEGED, Book Two: HUNTED, and Book Three: REDEEMED have now been released. You can get all three in one ebook bundle called THE SCOTTISH FALCONERS. Who doesn't love Scottish historicals? **Historical Romances: Since watching Gone With the Wind as a child, I have also had an avid interest in the American Civil War. This interest comes to bear in my acclaimed historical romance novels, "SECRETS AND SACIFICES," "JENNY'S PASSION," and "LILA'S VOW," along with short story, "A Soldier to Love." "ADAM'S TREASURE", also features some figures from history--Pinkerton agents. "DAUGHTERS OF THE CIVIL WAR" is a new book bundle containing two of my Civil War romances. People have been snatching up this deal by the hundreds! **Fantasy/Paranormal Romances: A hot, new magical series has now become a reality for me. Each magician gets his power for magic from a different amulet. But his power comes with a price...immortality. Is this a curse or a blessing? Starting with "PRELUDE TO MAGIC", you'll find the introduction to the Mark of the Magician Book One: "MOONLIGHT AND ILLUSIONS". This is now followed by Book Two: "MAGIC OF THE PENTACLE", which was a quarterfinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Book Three: "MAGIC AT THE ROXY" was recently released to complete the series. **Romantic Suspense: A recent addition to my group of books is "OUTLAW LOVER", a romantic suspense that draws on my experience growing up as part of an autoracing family. ************** About Diane: I work full time as a technical writer/editor and hope to retire one day and write novels full time. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in biology/animal science. (I had hoped to be a veterinarian, but that didn't work out.) I live in Maryland with my husband (a former racecar driver), son, and two little Welsh corgis, Dixie and Yoshi. I am also happy to live relatively close to my daughter, son-in-law, and two cute-as-a-button grandchildren. I am a very lucky person to have this life, and I am grateful beyond words for my loving family. Thanks for taking the time to visit this page. I hope you like these books and will tell your friends about them. For more information, check out www.dianewylie.com. You can follow me on Facebook and Twitter too.
