Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Scotland was forever in conflicts with the English in the 17th century. Charles II was about to be crowned Scotland’s king. Those who believed in him took up the sword to destroy those who coveted the rule of the northern country. Mercenaries roamed the borders to eliminate those who wished to control their country.

A new warrior has joined Ronan Carlisle’s Scottish mercenary forces. An accomplished archer, he admires the skills employed during battle. However, there are a few issues. First, the archer is a woman in a man’s war. Second, she has an attitude! Ronan is put off by the woman but requires reinforcements to hold off the English at Scotland’s borders. However, his patience wanes when he must daily deal with the holier-than-thou attitude. Time improves the relationship, but when they mount up to defend their country, he must remember it is a seasoned warrior at his side and ignore the personal quips which deters any thoughts of her becoming more to him than merely a skilled archer.

Alana Greame watched as the English troops destroyed her family and childhood home. Left with no one else to turn to, she hones her talents as an archer and joins Scotland’s army to ride with her half brother and then joins the mercenaries. Perhaps for self-preservation, she becomes hardened to the bloody battlefield. Every arrow sinking into the enemy is some gratification for what had been done to her family.

This historical romance’s story line is approximately 52,280 words. Some adult content; violence.

After 20 years in the corporate world and 25 more in the classroom, I retired from public life. I've set aside writing education curriculum and newspaper feature stories and have begun editing the stacks of drafts composed through the years. There was previously little time to follow through and market the manuscripts over and again. Once I had time on my hands, there were no excuses to not follow my life-long dream of becoming a published author. E-book and POD publishing has made that possible.Personally, I am a widow of many years and have been blessed with two children, grown and gone, and two grandchildren who will soon be fully grown. Although there have been other states of residence, I am a native Texan and have always returned to my roots. Travels include most of the U.S., Mexico, Hawaii, The Bahamas, England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, where I envisioned my first historical romance novel, Shadows o'er Killarney.I hope you enjoy my work. If so, please take a moment to pen a review on my book's page. It would be appreciated.
