Athena Trappes thinks she's in love...until she discovers the scoundrel only wanted her as his bit on the side. Enraged, she does what any spirited Englishwoman would do: set fire to his belongings, incur his dangerous wrath, and flee - immediately. With nowhere else to turn, she seeks freedom in the wilds of Scotland. Highland Laird Symon Grant lost his wife years ago, and it's his duty to find another. Athena is not exactly what the clan has in mind for him, but Symon's heart burns with unexpected passion for the woman who would risk everything to be free.

Elisabel de Carron is a young woman with a massive legacy weighing on her slender shoulders. As heiress to the Earldom of Ayr, she is a cousin to the king through her mother, and the king considers her a most valuable bargaining tool in the politics of Scotland. But Elisabel isn’t a willing pawn for the king - she’s concerned only with saving her family home, Castle Torridon, from the repeated attacks of a former ally. After a particularly nasty siege, Elisabel realizes that they cannot withstand another, and she is forced to summon the most feared mercenary in Scotland, The Red Fury.

I can’t believe how much better the books become, I try not to miss even one of the new books as they come out. I’m a bit disappointed that a good deal of her new books are only ebooks or for kindle or kindle fire. I need the audiobooks as my eyesight is not as good as it use to be.

With no recourse, the Lockharts offer Payton their most valuable commodity: their sister Mared's hand in marriage.

In AD 1282, James de Wolfe, the endearing and gentle brother, is killed in Wales as the Welsh rebel against Henry III...or was he? Five years later, tales of a Welsh warrior known as Blaidd Cryf, or Blayth the Strong, are making way to English ears along the Welsh Marches. A Welsh warrior who can somehow read the minds of the English armies is rising to power among the last princes of Wales. Rumors come from Wales that Blayth the Strong is none other than James de Wolfe.

I was reluctant to buy this book from the summary but decided because I had purchased the other two that I really should finish the series. I am beyond thrilled that I did, this book blew away the other two. It was extremely exciting and steamy. I’m looking forward to a new book from Mary Wine. I have all her others at this point.

I was scared, appalled, on the edge of my seat, happy, thrilled and excited. I cried from terror and from their pain together and cried again from happiness. I loved Jackson’s tenacity and endurance to find his true love and bring her home. Their tenderness toward one another was wonderful. Please don’t miss this whole Drake series, it’s just fabulous
