Excerpt
He was a hard-looking man. Enormous and bulky, he reminded her of a bull. His upper body was thick with muscle and riddled with vicious scars. But none so nasty as the one on his face. The skin around it was so tight and puckered, it pulled at the corner of his eye, giving him the appearance of a monster right out of a child’s nightmare. Wulf said he was gentle, but he certainly did not look it.
He looked like the demon his kind were reputed to be.
Catch next week’s final installment at Bambi’s blog. Be sure to comment for a chance to win an e-copy of Bron.
Blurb
After escaping the brutal tyrant who holds her under his boot, Leda’s newfound hope is shattered to discover her safe-haven to be nothing more than a den of brutal Norsemen, intent on conquering all of Francia and claiming its riches for their own. When she is offered as a bed slave to the fiercest Viking of them all, she despairs to realize freedom comes at a price.
Brondulf Adilson has struck terror into his enemies for as long as he can remember, to include the women who share his bed. Shunned for his frightful appearance, he doesn’t expect compliance from his new thrall and is resigned to forcing her to his will.
But the beauty he finds himself saddle with turns out to be anything but meek and compliant.

Impossibility…

Fiona’s heart pounded rapidly, fearing it would burst. “So you claim to be the Black Dragon. And your name is Alastair.”

He slowly placed his hands on his hips. “Aye. Have ye heard of another?”

“And your last…I mean your surname, it is MacKay?” Oh God, please don’t say it.

Goosebumps broke out on Fiona’s body. “Impossible.”

Aye.” His voice turning deadly.

“Then you are also one of the Dragon Knights.”

Excerpt:
An unexpected warmth tingled through her veins—here was a friend.
The warmth gave way to a chill.
A friend who could spoil everything.
Another thought made her hesitate. Before her lay a powerful man. But even she, living quietly at Stonehill, knew Henry of Chauvere’s story. He’d been struck down defending King Richard from attack following the king’s release from captivity three years earlier. Since then, he struggled to recover from those near-fatal wounds. According to tales she’d heard, he still could scarcely lift his sword arm.
The knight eyeing her through narrowed lids appeared far from feeble.

His eager blue eyes stared at her, as if caught in a pleasant dream. Katja’s stomach twisted in a way she’d not experienced before. Heat scorched its way from her head to her shoulders, tingling along her breasts and descending lower. She didn’t recognize or understand the strange awareness. Her breathing picked up its pace as her heart beat tripled. How could one look from a man inspire such a reaction?

Excerpt

The menacing declaration, delivered in a low, controlled manner, made her gasp. The image flashing through her mind caused it to reel. She slapped the man’s face so hard, his beard burned the palm of her hand.

Aednat froze, horrified at her own reaction.
 Striking a man was no small offense, and if this man was a ri, the consequences would be serious. His eyes widened right before he caught her arm and yanked her close.

Don’t forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a signed copy of Curse of the Healer!
Back Cover Copy:
After the death of Brian Boru in 1014, a legend arose of a healer so great she could raise a man from the dead, with a power so strong it could make any warrior the next high king of √Čire...and to steal it away from her, he need only possess her. 

Fated to be a healer…

Aednat has spent her entire life training to be the great healer, knowing she must remain alone. When she meets Diarmuid, the intense attraction she feels toward him shakes her resolve to believe in such a legend. If she gives in to the passion he ignites in her, can she settle for being less?

Destined to be his…

Diarmuid of Clonascra is renowned for his bravery in battle. Only one thing daunts him: the prospect of taking a wife. The safest course would be to keep his distance from Aednat, the bold, headstrong healer who's far too tempting for his peace of mind. But his overking orders him to protect her from a group of craven warriors intent on kidnapping her to steal her power.

What starts as duty for Diarmuid quickly transforms into something more. Aednat's power might be at risk, but so is his closed-off heart.
