The Border Chronicles

A Dangerous Love

A Dangerous Love/Book 1
Penguin Group (USA)

Adair Radcliffe was a king's brat; a bastard born to King Edward IV and Jane, the countess of Stanton. Orphaned by England's War of the Roses, and betrayed by her half-sister, Elizabeth of York, Adair is taken from her home in northern England during a border raid, and sold into servitude to Conal Bruce, the laird of Cleit. The laird seeks a housekeeper, and a bedmate -- but instead he finds that beneath the girl's dirty, disheveled appearance is a proud and spirited beauty who refuses to be tamed. It is she who will teach the stubborn Scot that love recognizes neither borders nor rank. And Adair will learn at long last that home is where her heart rests, and not in the past.

A Dangerous Love

And Ellen MacArthur, a highland heiress, who flees to King James IV for protection when her grandfather is murdered by greedy relatives. When Duncan needs a favor of the king he finds himself repaying his debt by taking a wife he neither wants nor desires.
