Genre: Historical Romance
Series: The Shadow Lairds
This banter-laden, historical mash-up of Dirty Harry in a kilt with Mr. and Mrs. Smith proves kilts have never been more fun!
AILSA CONNERY has waited three long years to finally escape her enslavement at Stirling Castle and reunite with her clan. But all her carefully laid plans are completely destroyed by the arrival of the fierce, Highland warrior known as Dubh Mahoun, the Black Devil, who has plans of his own.
KALLUM MACNEILL’s fearsome reputation has long allowed him to keep hidden his secret double life of freeing enslaved captives across the land. Only, it works against him when he inadvertently kidnaps a servant lass he assumed had gone astray from the group he’d come to free. When he discovers she has plans to head in the opposite direction, he can’t leave her to travel alone . . . or risk her exposing his true identity. Escorting a lone woman should be easy, if only the beauty didn’t oppose him at every turn.
As they make their way to the Highlands—one feisty hellion fighting the strong, prideful devil—their heated sparring leads to heat of a totally different kind. But the perils Kallum must face to get Ailsa home, safely and untouched, are nowhere near as dangerous as what lies in wait for them . . . .

Series: Lawless (Book 1)
Proper eastern lady MARY CATHERINE TEMPLETON is on the verge of being destitute when she learns she’s inherited a saloon out west. Armed with her recent bachelor’s degree, she spends her last dollars on a train ticket to the plains of Kansas rather than resort to marriage and a man for support. She’s determined to make a success of the rundown liquor joint, even after her innocent sensibilities are shocked to discover its other sinful commodity.
All burnt-out bounty hunter BLAAZE LASSITER wants is to retire in a quiet, uneventful town, catch up on his reading, and try a little whittling. He thought he’d found the perfect place to abandon his live-by-the-gun ways, but ever since that she-devil changed the rules for the upstairs amenities in her establishment, the frustrated men of Lawless have started a ruckus worthy of the town’s name but detrimental to his peaceful existence.
When the backlash against Mary Catherine becomes life-threatening, Blaaze feels duty-bound to strap on his guns again to protect the woman who’s got his blood riled in more ways than one. But once he puts down this insurrection, he’s gonna take up a new leisure activity—one that involves giving the prissy college graduate a whole different kind of education.

The only female supervisor in the Midwest sports medicine practice serving Shave’s team, Vanessa’s not about to let the brash football legend destroy her promotion chances by sabotaging his own recovery. A former athlete herself, she’s intentionally chosen to forego marriage and family to pursue the highest sports medicine position in the career of her dreams. So she’s not opposed to exploiting Shave’s competitive nature to get him to follow her program. Vanessa may get more than she bargained for, however. Intrigued by the confirmed bachelorette, Shave’s issuing a challenge of his own. Now that she’s got him back on his game, the next pass he’s making is aimed straight for her heart.
