Can the heat of passion burn too bright?
In the six months since the Jacobites met defeat at Culloden, the English have ruthlessly routed the remaining rebels. Now Sir Edwin Roxburgh rides to claim Cameron House, his reward for his loyalty to the king.
His welcome comes at the point of a sword. It’s only after a fierce fight that Edwin discovers that underneath the banned tartan, the “boy” he’s just wounded is none other than the lady of the house.
If the crown thinks Lady Iona Cameron will allow an English soldier to turn her out of her own home, the crown is sadly mistaken. She never thought her desperate attempt to defy authority would send her to a traitor’s death—unless she agrees to marry Roxburgh.
Edwin quickly realizes he has his hands full trying to control the fiery, rebellious widow—and trying to control his own desire to fill his arms with her beautiful body. But he has a dark past that makes love not only impossible, but dangerous—especially if Iona manages to slip past his guard.
About the Author
I am an avid reader, reading anything from Jane Austen to Stephen King and everything in between. I have written stories ever since I could hold a pencil and I still have a copy of the medieval romance I wrote, longhand and in felt tip pen, when I was 14.
I write in a variety of genre, including paranormal romance, romantic suspense and historical romance.
I love writing gothic romances...love stories with a dash of horror and a creepily ever after. These stories are heavily tinged with the supernatural and laced with spine-tingling moments, featuring haunted characters tormented by dark secrets.
I also enjoy the occasional foray into the realms of horror writing.
I live in England and love to travel to European cities which are steeped in history and romance. Venice, Dubrovnik and Vienna are among my favourites. I am a teacher, married to a lovely man and mum to two grown up children.

This is book 2 in the Georgian Rebel series. On his way to claim his prize for his loyalty to the English crown, Sir Edwin Roxburgh is attacked by a lone bandit. He soon learns that his attacker is none other than the widow of the former owner of his new home. With her rebellious nature, they soon find themselves married to save both of their necks from the chopping block. Lady Iona Cameron will not lose her home to an English soldier without a fight. When she finds herself attracted to her new husband, she tries her best to ignore the pull she feels for him. But as they spend more tome together, she finds that she doesn't want to ignore her feelings any longer. Can this unlikely duo find an everlasting love with everything working against them. I LOVED THIS STORY!! I truly didn't want it to end. Iona was a spirited heroine that was not going to let some Englishman come in and take over her home without putting up the fight of her life. She was covertly fighting for her fellow Scotsman and she wasn't going to let an interloper get in her way. Of course, she didn't count on her attraction to Edwin. Of course, you can't blame the girl as Edwin is a man that any woman could fall for. Edwin...sigh. Can I bring him home with me? Definitely on the top of my list of book boyfriends. He had that right combination of rugged masculinity and sensitivity that would make any red-blooded woman swoon!! I read book 1 in the series, A Kiss for a Highlander, right before this one and it was just as good as this one. I could not find anywhere that the series was continuing, but the book ended in a way that made me believe that it would. I'm hoping for at least two more stories from characters that were introduced in books 1 and 2 of the series. If you have not read this series, go get it now!!!
