In the hands of New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell, the Scottish Highlands come alive with treachery, intrigue, and unforgettable love. . . Able to ride, wield a sword, and throw a dagger as well as any man, flame-haired Ainslee of Kengarvey is more warrior than lady. Yet even her awesome skill as a horsewoman won't help her outrace the knight who pursues her. An Anglo-Norman who has won favor with the King, Sir Gabel de Amalville must prove his loyalty by crushing the rebellious MacNairn clan. Seizing the youngest daughter of the chief gives him a necessary advantage. But having sequestered Ainslee in his isolated castle keep, he soon finds himself the prisoner of a passion he never could have foreseen. Now, as the shadow of war descends upon the Highlands, Gabel will follow his heart into battle--for the love of the sensual woman who has captured him, mind, body and soul. . . Praise for Hannah Howell and her Highland novels "The pages fly. . .escapades and sizzling love scenes to keep every reader satisfied." --Romantic Times "Few authors portray the Scottish highlands as lovingly or colorfully." --Publishers Weekly "Another classic." --Romantic Times

My Lord's Desire She had sworn never to marry, never to allow any man to claim her or her lands. Yet when dark whispers in castle corridors threw Lady Adelaide into the arms of a valiant knight, the beautiful heiress began to rethink her solemn vow. To ransom his captive brother, Armand de Boisbaston had great need of a wealthy - and willing - wife. Fate sent him Lady Adelaide instead. A woman who claimed she wished to avoid the marriage bed, yet whose lips told a different tale. Now dangerous intrigues have forced them into a match as inescapable as the burgeoning passion that grows between them... The Notorious Knight Far from the intrigues of the king's court, all Lady Gillian desired was to keep her family's estate safe - and to honour her vow never to marry. Then Sir Bayard de Boisbaston arrived at Averette Castle to warn of possible danger and protect all within. Who was this man? No matter that he was surely the handsomest knight in the realm, and made her rethink her steadfast vows. Chivalry demanded Sir Bayard protect Lady Gillian, though he never expected to do battle with the lady herself. Gillian was a woman of fire and spirit who soon had Bayard plotting a conspiracy. One to convince Lady Gillian that a knight of her own was useful, not only on the battlefield - but in the bedroom as well!

Senioritis, acne and rampant hormones have turned the odds against a 17 year-old ever graduating, getting a driver's license, or taking his dream girl to the prom. It does not help that he is "mentored" by an acerbic, off-the-wall driving instructor, is harassed daily by an in-your-face bully, and has accidentally invited not one, but three girls to the prom. His biggest challenge, however, is becoming the courageous person he pretends to be
