Overview

Beautiful Lady Rose, the fiercely independent mistress of Somerford Manor, fears she may lose her home to roving raiders. As a lone woman--in a man's world--asking for help from her Liege Lord, so instead, she reluctantly hires a bold Viking warrior, Gunnar Olafson, and his mercenaries to protect her undefended lands and people. Strong, muscular, and intense Gunnar takes her breath away, but she dares not trust him, especially when she barely trusts herself!

Gunnar is not what he seems. Posing as a hired soldier, he is duty-bound to expose Rose, whose actions have been seen as traitorous. Somerford is to be his reward. Gunnar quickly realizes Rose is the true prize. Now he's trapped between his duty and his desire, revealing his deception to the woman who's stolen his heart.

About the Author

Looking back, I always seemed to be writing something, but the first time I actually thought I might make a career as a writer was when I won the local short story contest.

Suddenly my name was in the newspaper and people had heard of me, and I was actually paid! Probably until then, although I had dreamed of being a writer, I had never expected to make a career from it. I thought writing was a hobby. After the contest win I began to wonder if, maybe, one day I would be able to write and not have to work to support my habit!

As well as writing for Avon in the USA, over the years I have written for Mills & Boon/Harlequin as Deborah Miles. Two of these early books have now been reissued as eBooks (See My Books Page). I also wrote as Lilly Sommers for the Australian market, and these books are being reissued in Germany and Australia under the name Kaye Dobbie.

I currently juggle my writing with sharing an old house and big garden with my husband, as well as far too many animals. Sometimes writing anything is a struggle but I keep trying because I love it.
