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...

excerpt

"Come out of hiding, lad. This is stupid. You"ve a FitzHugh sett to don, and a master to serve."

Morgan stuck out her tongue at him.

"Why do you hide, anyway? I"ll not punish ye further. There"s no need."

"I"m na" hiding," she replied finally, from a spot behind him. She noted he didn"t appear surprised to hear her from the new position.

"Yonder woods hold you bound, then?"

"I seek my privy, and he calls it hiding," she remarked to the air as if it were her audience. She knew it not only explained her absence, but her stealth. She watched him assimilate it.

He laughed."You a shy type?"

"At times," she answered. "This being one of them."

"Well, if I was blessed with a thin, bony frame like the good Lord settled on you, I"d be lief to hide it away, too. The lasses must run at the sight of your white arse."

"I would na" know. I"ve na" tested it."

"Find yourself a lass who"s heavy of foot, then. She"ll be easier to catch."

He was laughing at his own joke as he sat to pull his boots off. Morgan turned away. She wasn"t risking exposure again until he was under the water, and she still had a braid to undo and test for damage. She"d seen enough near-naked males anyway, that whatever he could show her wasn"t going to be of any interest, other than sizing up her opponent.

She had the braid undone, had raked out a fistful of shorn hair from the back of her neck, and had it re-braided before she heard his splashing. She looked out. That quick check showed that he"d gone beneath the water. Morgan darted in, grabbed the smaller pile and retreated to the shelter of the trees to done them.

"Where did you learn to toss knives, boy?" he called over his shoulder.

"What learning?" she answered. "I missed."
