My trembling should have made it obvious.
But he had to twist my bliss into something humiliating.
Stoking the fire inside me even more.
Melting away anything that was left of Liane.
Leaving only my need. My insatiable appetite.
He’s taken my innocence
And teased it, taunted it, caged it.
Taken it to the depths of pain.
And heights of pleasure.
Until he owns every secret inch of me.
Owned is a darker, OMYW romance novella with steamy scenes and a very happy HEA.

Although ‘The McCabe Books 1-6’ are stand-alone stories, I highly recommend reading book 5 “A Man of Honor” before reading book 6 “Her Brave Knight”. The stories in these two books complete one long tale. Many of the characters in this book have been introduced earlier in books 1-5.
Alastair McCabe is happy to finally be on his way back to Gleann after months of being away. He’s enjoying the journey until he comes across Mairi, a young, pregnant woman, as she is being robbed, and quickly puts an end to the crime. He doesn’t know what it is about this woman, but he feels an incredible need to protect her and the bairn she carries. After burying her dead husband, he takes her home to Gleann where he can keep her safe, first through marriage, and then over his knee to keep her from doing anything dangerous.
Mairi’s only memories are from the last five years, and they haven’t been particularly happy ones. First, the Murray’s find her injured next to a river, and take her home. Once they realize her memory is gone, they use her and sell her into marriage to an older man. Now, for some reason, an English Lord is trying to kidnap her. If only she could remember who she is and where she came from.
The McCabe’s protect their own, and Alastair’s new wife is no exception. They’ll stand together as they figure out what happened to Mairi and who she really is, and most importantly, why Lord Thompson is so determined to take her.
Although this is a stand-alone novel, many of the characters were introduced to the series in The McCabe’s Books 1-4.
Flora Munro had a crush on Ham McCabe for what seemed to be her whole life until she got tired of him avoiding her all the time. She finally realized what a shallow person he really was, he didn’t like the fact that she wore men’s clothes, didn’t obsess about her appearance and didn’t really try to impress people. Either they liked her for who she was, or they didn’t, Flora didn’t put on airs for anyone.
