Summoned by the King to guard his son, Sir Ivor "Hawk" Mackintosh now has two royals to protect. This daring, willful woman has invaded Hawk's every thought, and laid siege to his heart. Soon the solitary soldier is yearning for a life with Marsi at his side and in his bed. But as their passion grows, so too does the danger surrounding them.

The Sinner by Margaret Mallory
Four fearless warriors return to the Highlands to claim their lands and legacies. But all their trials on the battlefield can't prepare them for their greatest challenges yet: winning the hearts of four willful Scottish beauties.
Alex MacDonald is knownn for his skill as a warrior, his prowess with women, and his vow to never take a wife. But now his chieftain has asked him to make the ultimate sacrifice: wed Glynis MacNeil, a lass famed throughout the Highlands for her exquisite beauty -- and defiant ways.
Familiar with heartbreak and betrayal, Glynis refuses to fall for another handsome scoundrel. Yet when Alex's past sins force their unlikely union, Glynis gives in to temptation and becomes his wife. Will their newfound passion be strong enough to fight the enemy that threatens their home, their clan, and their very lives?
While Highland Hero mixes high politics and the struggle for the Scottish crown, The Sinner focuses on the two romantic leads.
Alex is forced to ally himself with a powerful family to protect his clan. Glynis's family is pressuring her to do the same. But Glynis is young and high spirited and determined to marry for love. So, she plays tricks to discourage her suitors, tries her best to avoid Alex.
Alex is attracted to Glynis's spirit, humor and beauty. It is clear from the start that Alex and Glynis are destined for each other. The obstacles, uncertainty and misunderstandings only add to the fun of their love story. Margaret Mallory gives us another fun escape in The Sinner.
