An undeniable love. An impossible choice.

The Earl
Garrick Helmsley, an earl in both England and Scotland, returns from the Crusades to find his Scottish inheritance challenged by his uncle. Forced to secure his claim in Linkirk, he agrees to marry the daughter of a powerful border lord. But no sooner does he agree to the arrangement than he meets Lady Emma Waryn—the impulsive and irresistible sister-in-law of his old friend, the Countess of Kenshire. Before he knows it, he finds himself escorting Lady Emma to Scotland. The more time he spends with her, the more he wishes to end his betrothal, but the situation in Scotland only becomes more heated.

The Lady
Lady Emma loves her elder brothers, but their protectiveness frequently drives her to the brink of madness. The last thing she wants is more of the same in a husband, so she has pledged never to marry a powerful, domineering man. Yet the Earl of Clave is both of those things—and he immediately stirs her passion. Garrick might not be the husband she thought she needed, but she soon realizes he’s the only one she wants.

Garrick’s unwanted betrothal stands between them, but breaking it may well cause a war. Will love find a way to bring the earl and his lady together? The Earl’s Entanglement is the fifth book in a historical romance series set in 13th century Northumbria along the Anglo-Scottish border. If you like strong female heroines, alpha male heroes, and sizzling romance, you’ll love the fifth installment of the Border Series.

*The Earl’s Entanglement can be read as a stand-alone novel.

A dangerous mission. A deadly conspiracy. A daring love.

Jerome Munro has been battling a shameful truth all his life—he is the son of a traitor. So when Robert the Bruce orders him to deliver a bold declaration asserting Scotland’s independence, Jerome knows it’s his best chance to prove his allegiance. When he travels to the Borderlands to gather support for the King, he finds himself entranced by a copper-haired English lass whose determination to serve the Bruce kindles an unexpected attraction. Fearing his desire for Elaine will disrupt his assignment, Jerome fights against the heat between them, but when fate throws them together on a dangerous mission, he must choose between love and loyalty.

Elaine longs for much more than the sheltered life of an English lady.

As the threat spirals out of control, can they unravel the mystery and protect their growing love?
