She's an English lady who knows her duty to the Crown. He's a disreputable, dishonorable and 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 Irish barony for England with audacity and sheer will for seven years, bending to no man. But when the worst of the Irish warlords breaches the impenetrable castle walls through trickery, he threatens her personal wall of cool reserve as well.
Aodh Mac Con the most formidable man she's ever met, but the deeper danger of this Irish scoundrel is that only Aodh can see—and appreciate—the deepest, most hidden parts of her. Only Aodh can unleash her secret passions.
Can she stand firm, or will she fall too–straight into his arms?
NOT WHAT HE EXPECTS…
Aodh Mac Con, The Hound, is through serving the English Crown and waiting to be granted the barony he sees as his birthright. After taking control of the remote castle with his bold men, he turns his attention on Katarina, intending to conquer the cool, reserved chatelaine as he's done everything else in his life: by making her bend to his irresistible will.
Can he conquer her in time, before the armies of England come marching, or will the fire that fuels her defiance put everything he's fought for in peril?
