Still mourning her mother’s death, Kimberly Richards is incensed by the determination of her father, the Earl of Amburough, to marry her off as quickly as possible – just to please the jealous lover he plans to wed. And since Kimberly harbours a deep-seated dislike of gold-diggers and the whole distasteful state of affairs, the feisty young heiress already despises the worthy suiter she encounters at Sherring Cross Estate: Lachlan MacGregor, the dashing, newly improvished Laird of Clan MacGregor.
A tryst with the handsome, haughty Lachlan seems dubious at best, especially since the rogue has designs on the married Duchess of Wrothston. But strange turns and outrageous circumstances promise to lead a woefully mismatched pair to a wildly unexpected destination- where a hard, resisting heart can open to the true glories of love.
Prim and beautiful professor Roseleen White clutches her new prized possession – a thousand-year-old Scandinavian sword. And suddenly, a dream stands before her – a magnificent Viking warrior sworn to satisfy Roseleen’s every desire.
Accursed for untold centuries, mighty Thorn is now enslaved to a woman. Yet it is Roseleen who is the true prisoner, held willing captive by a handsome barbarian who sweeps her back to the ancient past on a journey of sensual discovery.
But only by banishing him from her life forever can Roseleen free Thorn from immortality’s chains – forcing her to make a devastating choice that will either imperil their future or preserve a love more powerful than time.
