    A vengeful Scottish warrior holds a young English widow captive in this novel from the New York Times–bestselling author and “incredible storyteller” (Los Angeles Daily News)   Like the rest of Scotland, Langley Castle is ravaged by both the deadly plague and the ongoing war between Robert the Bruce and England’s King Edward I. After her husband, Afton, Lord of Langley, succumbs to the black death, Igrainia flees, hoping to return to her native England. But Afton served the English king and held numerous hostages in the castle, including the wife and daughter of Scottish warrior Eric Graham.   Before she can reach safety, Graham captures Igrainia. He forces her to return to Langley Castle, only to discover that his wife and daughter have already fallen victim to the plague. At first, Graham treats Igrainia as a mere political pawn, a pretty prize to dangle in front of King Edward. But when the English ruler refuses to trade Igrainia for the wife of Scotland’s ruler Robert the Bruce, Graham forces Igrainia to marry him.   What Graham never expects is the desire his strong-willed bride stirs in his soul. And when Igrainia discovers the true heart of the fearsome knight, her life—and loyalties—will never be the same . . .  New York Times–bestselling author Heather Graham whisks readers away to fourteenth-century Scotland for an adventure and love story they will never forget.

    Long a master of the historical and the heartfelt, Jane Bonander pens a sweeping Scottish romance, perfect for readers of Mary Balogh.
    "Jane Bonander reaches out to her readers' hearts." —RT Book Reviews
    As Fletcher MacNeil sat in a jail cell, the last thing he expected was a Scottish solicitor bearing news of an inheritance. Fletcher, half Comanche and half Scottish, is the only surviving heir to Castle Sheiling and a fortune beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he must escape his current predicament and travel across the ocean—to a world of loyal clans and kinsmen where Fletcher’s very appearance marks him as outsider.
    Rosalyn Geddes, housekeeper of Sheiling, is relieved to hear that the new earl of Kintyre has been located in America. But the last thing she expected was the mysterious, darkly handsome man who appears on the castle doorstep. Rosalyn cannot believe he is a MacNeil, let alone the new earl. But there’s something about this man—a power and magnetism that draws her in.
    Fletcher learns that his inheritance comes with a caveat—he must produce an heir within one year’s time or the fortune goes to a rogue cousin of the late earl. A marriage of convenience is proposed, and Roz reluctantly agrees. What begins as purely a business transaction blossoms into something more. Roz begins to feel herself open up to the possibility of love, but the question of whether Fletcher will leave her once he’s met the terms of the will continues to loom over their relationship. Can they overcome Roz’s tragic past and Fletcher’s uncertain future?

    When librarian Poe Markham takes the job at Thornchapel, she only wants two things: to stay away from Thornchapel's tortured owner, Auden Guest, and to find out what happened to her mother twelve years ago. It should be easy enough--keep her head down while she works in the house's crumbling private library and while she hunts down any information as to why this remote manor tucked into the fog-shrouded moors would be the last place her mother was seen alive. But Thornchapel has other plans for her...As Poe begins uncovering the house's secrets, both new and old, she's also pulled into the seductive, elegant world of Auden and his friends--and drawn to Auden's worst enemy, the beautiful and brooding St. Sebastian. And as Thornchapel slowly tightens its coil of truths and lies around them, Poe, Auden and St. Sebastian start unravelling into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Together, they awaken a fate that will either anoint them or leave them in ashes...From the author of the USA Today bestselling New Camelot series comes an original fairy tale full of ancient mysteries, lantern-lit rituals, jealousy, money, murder, sacred torment, and obsessions that last for lifetimes...***A Lesson in Thorns is the first of four books in the Thornchapel series.***
