Description

Catastrophe changes Margaret Ogilvie's life when her three older brothers drown. She undertakes a perilous journey across the Scottish Highlands seeking the protection of the man she was betrothed to as a child; a nobleman she hasn't seen for eight years. Shocked to discover his role in the assassination of a king has implicated her in his plot to take the throne, she finds herself in dire need of a champion. Rheade Robertson is duty bound to aid his older brother, the clan chieftain, in his sworn quest to capture the assassins of King James Stewart. Protecting Margaret from persecution will mean defying his brother. Can he bring the murderers to justice and save an innocent woman from the executioner's axe? Or will family rivalry and a vengeful queen destroy his hopes for a future with the courageous lass he loves?show more

About Anna Markland

I was born and brought up in England, but I've lived most of my life in Canada. I was an elementary school teacher for 25 years, a job I loved. After that I worked with my husband in the management of his businesses. He's a born entrepreneur who likes to boast he's never had a job! My final "career" was as Director of Administration of a global disaster relief organization. I then embarked on writing a romance, something I'd always wanted to do. I chose the medieval period because it's my favorite to read. I have a keen interest in genealogy. This hobby has had a tremendous influence on my stories. My medieval romances are tales of family honor, ancestry, and roots. As an amateur genealogist, I cherished a dream of tracing my own English roots back to the Norman Conquest-most likely impossible since I am not descended from nobility! So I made up a family and my stories follow its members through successive generations. I want readers to feel happy that the heroes and heroines have found their soul mates and that the power of love has overcome every obstacle. For me, novels are an experience of another world and time. I lose myself in the characters' lives, always knowing they will triumph in the end and find love. One of the things I enjoy most about writing historical romance is the in-depth research necessary to provide readers with an authentic medieval experience. I love ferreting out bits of historical trivia I never knew! I based the plot of my first novel, Conquering Passion, on a bizarre incident that actually happened to a Norman noblewoman. I hope you come to know and love my cast of characters as much as I do.show more
