I want ye with a ferocity that frightens me.

Abandoned as a wee bairn and lovingly raised by the Keiths, Matilda has spent her entire life pondering her identity. When the truth proves more sinister than expected, she is desperate to hide her shameful secret despite the missives that continue to arrive, threatening both Matilda and her kin. Even death is preferable to losing the trust of those she loves, for surely, the Keiths and Irvines will disown her if they discover their enemy’s blood runs through her veins.

Preferring the life of a traveling knight, Reginald Irvine lives for the moment, never focusing on tomorrow. When ordered to discover the contents of Matilda’s mysterious missives, Reginald relishes the task. He will charm the truth out of the lovely lass, then be off on his next journey. But when Matilda pushes him away and finds herself in danger, Reginald determines to protect her at all costs, even if the cost is losing his life… or his heart.

Tired of the threats, Matilda takes matters into her own hands, and Reginald gladly follows. If their plan succeeds, they will save hundreds of lives. If they fail, they have more to lose than just their heads.

But, when tempers flare, desires are spoken, and attraction turns to passion, the enemy on their heels is no longer the only threat to life as they know it. 


Matilda has been brought up by the Keith clan after being dumped on their doorstep as a baby.  They always treated her like one of the family but she preferred to work as a maid and constant companion to Elizabeth.  Now however somebody has been telling her who she really is and that terrifies her.
Reginald Irving is a Knight of Scotland.  He is a warrior who spends most of his time traveling or in battle.  It's obvious to his brother,  the Laird and to him that secrets are being kept.  Those can bring danger to the clan,  so it's time to uncover them.  
This historical romance is full of danger and intrigue.  It's hard for our characters to know who to trust. You will easily fall in love with the complicated family dynamics.  Our heroine is extremely brave and she needs to be.  Our hero thought he had his whole life planned out,  but was in for a huge awakening.  
You could read this book on it's own but it's part of a series that is best read in order.  
I loved it.


Mia is a full time wife and mother of two rowdy boys, residing in the SF Bay Area. As a child, she often wrote stories about fantastic places or magical things, always preferring to live in a world where the line between reality and fantasy didn't exist.

In High school she entered writing contests and had some stories published in small newspapers or school magazines. As life continued, so did her love of writing. So one day, she decided to end her cake decorating business, pull out her laptop and fulfill her dream of writing and publishing novels. And she did.

When Mia isn't writing books or chasing her sweaty children around a park, she loves to drink coffee by the gallon, get lost in a good book, hike with her family and drink really big margaritas with her friends! Her happy place is the Renaissance Faire, where you can find her at the joust, rooting for the shirtless highlander in a kilt
