Scorching hot historical romance
She's an English lady who knows her duty to the Crown. He's a disreputable, dishonorable, sinfully handsome Irish warlord. When honor and passion collide, who will win their test of wills?
NOT WHAT SHE WANTS…
Katarina of Rardove has safeguarded the remote Irish barony for the queen of England with audacity and sheer will for years, bending to no man. But when the worst of the Irish warlords breaches the castle walls through trickery, Katarina faces the deepest danger of her life. Not only is Aodh Mac Con the most formidable man she’s ever met, he's the only one who can see—and appreciate—the deepest, most hidden parts of her. Only this Irish scoundrel can unleash her secret passions.
NOT WHAT HE EXPECTS…
Warrior and rebel Aodh Mac Con, The Hound, leads his bold men on an outrageous mission to commandeer the windswept Irish castle he sees as his birthright. Coldly satisfied at their success, he turns his attention on Katarina, intending to conquer the reserved chatelaine as he’s done everything else in his life: by making her bend to his irresistible will. He never expects to have the dormant fires of his ice-cold heart stoked by this defiant slip of a woman.
...EXACTLY WHAT THEY NEED
Their battle of wills—and the bedroom—fuel a passion that leaves them both scorched and stunned, forcing them to rethink every lesson ever learned about loyalty and love. Can Aodh win her heart before the English armies come marching, or will the fire that fuels her defiance destroy everything he’s ever fought for?
