Add To

The Earl
Garrick Helmsley, an earl in both England and Scotland, returns from the Crusades to find his Scottish inheritance challenged by his uncle. Forced to secure his claim in Linkirk, he agrees to marry the daughter of a powerful border lord. But no sooner does he agree to the arrangement than he meets Lady Emma Waryn—the impulsive and irresistible sister-in-law of his old friend, the Countess of Kenshire. Before he knows it, he finds himself escorting Lady Emma to Scotland. The more time he spends with her, the more he wishes to end his betrothal, but the situation in Scotland only becomes more heated.

The Lady
Lady Emma loves her elder brothers, but their protectiveness frequently drives her to the brink of madness. The last thing she wants is more of the same in a husband, so she has pledged never to marry a powerful, domineering man. Yet the Earl of Clave is both of those things—and he immediately stirs her passion. Garrick might not be the husband she thought she needed, but she soon realizes he’s the only one she wants.

Garrick’s unwanted betrothal stands between them, but breaking it may well cause a war. Will love find a way to bring the earl and his lady together?


Sir Garrick Helmsley,  Earl of Clave is on his way to his lands in Scotland to see his mother.  She has been trying to persuade him to marry since he came back from the war in Acre. She has a bride in mind whose father is one of the most powerful clan chiefs in the area. 
His uncle thinks the Scottish property and title should belong to him instead. 
Lady Emma Waryn is living with her brother and his wife.  While she loves them, she also doesn't like being always told what she can and can't do.  Her brother is just as over protective as their father was.  She wants adventure.  A trip to see a friend who is expecting a baby is the ideal opportunity. 
A lively trip through the exciting borderlands between England and Scotland.  Our hero has a very difficult decision to make, that choice might start a war or bring peace.  Our heroine is a very determined young lady who goes after what she wants. 
Good fun,  with great characters. 
A good adventure.  I loved it. 

A former English teacher, Cecelia combines two of her passions, romance novels and the middle ages, in debut novel The Thief’s Countess. Combining alpha male types and strong female heroines, Cecelia transports readers to an admittedly romanticized time of knights and castles.

After reading Johanna Lindsey and Judith McNaught, she started a manuscript twenty years ago when medieval romance was at its height of mainstream popularity. Picking it back up in 2015 when vampires and highlanders reigned supreme, Cecelia stuck to the genre she loved and brought medieval England back to life.

She lives in Northeast, Pennsylvania with her husband and two young children where she can be found either planning a Disney trip, watching period dramas or convincing her children to watch Star Wars. She is firmly House Stark and Gryffindor.
