Set against the turbulent backdrop of fourteenth-century Scotland, Lady of the Knight tells the breathtaking tale of a brave lass left on her own and surrounded by treachery....
Her Honor Demanded Vengeance
When her family is destroyed by clan Fitzhugh, Morganna KilCreggar vows revenge.
Tall and lean, she disguises herself as a lad--and hones her skills with deadly weapons. A man who brazenly takes what he wants, Alexander FitzHugh makes the boy "Morgan" his squire. The striking and brutally strong warrior never imagines what his servant is hiding. Yet FitzHugh cannot deny that he is strangely drawn to the lad in his charge, and he intends to find out why.
His Heart Demanded Surrender
With each day that passes, the bold knight peels away more of Morgan's defenses, until he finally reveals her most precious secret. Suddenly vulnerable to an unbidden desire, Morgan strays from her purpose...to Alex's bed, where she discovers sensual pleasures she never imagined. Now, in the battle between vengeance and passion, the more powerful will emerge victorious, bringing together two hearts, two clans, two soul...

"Author Jackie Ivie has produced a keeper in her debut novel, Lady of the
Knight. Fast-paced action pairs with a superbly rendered 14th Century
setting and a cast of characters that will make readers cry for more. The
chemistry between the two main characters is undeniable, the romance intense
and sweetly secret, the plot well wrought and energetic.--Janean Nusz, Word Museum

"This is a very exciting novel set in the wilds of Scotland in the early 1300s. Jackie Ivie has woven a beautiful tale of forbidden love and revenge.
Morgan is a strong and beautiful woman who has no idea just how wonderful she
is. Zander is a bit hard headed and blind at times, but he sees Morgan for the
beautiful woman she is, inside and out. But how can their love make it when his
family destroyed hers?
Lady of the Knight is an excellent novel that you don"t want to
miss—it's one you will want to read again and again.
