About the Author
An award winning author, Debra's ongoing romance with wild and remote locales began at an early age and is reflected in her books. Born and raised in California, and drawn to the rugged Sierra Nevada mountain range like a fish to water, Debra was an accomplished outdoorswoman by the time she finished high school.
After earning a degree in geology, Debra went to work for British Petroleum as an exploration geologist, working in Alaska on arctic drilling projects. She loved the adventure, the travel, and the thrill of discovering oil. She kept journals during her years as a geologist and always knew that someday she'd write about her experiences.
Debra's life changed dramatically after she returned to school to earn her Master's Degree in Business Administration. She didn't return to geology or the oil industry, choosing instead to return to California and settle a stone's throw from her first love, the rugged mountains of the Sierra Nevada.
There she met her husband James, a native of Scotland, and adopted their dog, Seamus, a 160 lb. mastiff. Both provide inspiration for her writing. Together, the threesome spends weekends camping, fishing, hiking, and skiing.
Debra began her writing career in 1997 and, after winning the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart award in 1998, sold her first book to Harlequin in early 1999. In what is fast becoming a trademark of her writing, Debra loves nothing better than to strand her heroes and heroines in rugged, often dangerous settings, then let nature take its course!
Debra invites you to write to her in care of Harlequin Readers Service, P.O. Box 1325, Buffalo, NY 14269.

Set in the year 1206. Scottish Laird George Grant was the sole survivor of a shipwreck. He had been en route to Wick to marry the woman King William demanded. However, he woke to find himself on Fair Isle among Vikings.
Ulrika's brother was imprisoned in the dank caves at Dunnet Head. To pay for his release, Rika needed her dowry. To get her dowry from her hated sire, she need a temporary husband. With no way to get off the island, Grant had no choice but to agree.
***** Rika is much like an Amazon or Valkyrie. I admired her feisty spirit! Well written, fast paced, and caught my attention on the first page! Highly recommended reading! *****
