Out Now: Lady With The Devil’s Scar

My new medieval set in Scotland is called Lady With The Devil’s Scar.

I love this book. The heroine is a woman who has been a pawn of the changing tides of politics and land ownership and the hero is a commander of the armies of kings.

I loved Isobel...her toughness, her vulnerability, her leadership, her isolation and her motivation to save her people and her Keep from harm.

I have put an excerpt on my website of their first kiss, harsh, raw, brutal and uncompromising. I hope you like it.

About Me
