"A nonstop action filled thrill ride. Smooth prose, gripping emotion and dynamic characterization distinguish Northcott's debut." (Gerri Russell, author of A Knight to Desire on RENEGADE )

"Nancy Northcott is a new writer to watch. Her characters and their problems ring true, her plot and pacing races along, and her prose sizzles. Her magic system is unique and fresh, and her love scenes are a terrific mix of 'hot' and tender. I loved Renegade, and you will, too!" (New York Times bestselling author, A.C. Crispin, on RENEGADE )

"Paranormal fans will love this sexy, action-packed romance!" (Virginia Kantra, New York Times bestselling author on RENEGADE )

About the Author

Nancy Northcott's childhood ambition was to grow up and become Wonder Woman. Around fourth grade, she realized it was too late to acquire Amazon genes, but she still loved comic books, science fiction, fantasy and YA romance. As a history major at Davidson College, she spent a summer studying Tudor and Stuart England at Oxford University.

Nancy became an attorney but eventually realized her internal super heroine needed more room to play. She left the legal profession to teach at the college level and to write freelance articles and novels, most recently blending her extensive knowledge of fantasy into her own stories. A sucker for fast action and wrenching emotion, Nancy combines the romance and high stakes she loves in her new contemporary mage series.

Married since 1987, she considers herself lucky to have found a man who not only enjoys a good adventure story but doesn't mind carrying home a suitcase full of research books. Nancy and her husband live in North Carolina and have one son, who also likes a good adventure story.

Nancy Northcott is a RWA Golden Heart finalist. Renegade is her debut novel.

Deep in the heart of Georgia, a woman fights against insurmountable odds. As Shire Reeve (sheriff) of the southeastern United States, Valeria Banning is charged with the protection of Mundanes (non-magical humans) in her district yet on this steamy summer night, it's Valeria who needs protection and there's no one in sight to come to her aid. Stuffed into the trunk of a car carrying her deeper into the murky swamp, her Mage powers are blocked by an amulet the ghouls have hung around her neck but she manages to shake it off and send out one last, frantic, magical plea for help, praying with everything in her that someone, somewhere will hear.

Rather than ease readers into her story, Nancy Northcott plunges them straight into the heart of the action from the first page of this extraordinary tale. I was right there with Valeria as she struggles against the evil ghouls determined to drain her of her magic then either kill her or force her to mate to create more ghouls. With Northcott's vivid descriptions and superb writing, I could feel the sheen of perspiration from the dense Georgia humidity, smell the pungent aroma of the dense vegetation of the surrounding swamp, feel the pulse-pounding desperation as Valeria fights for her life, the soul-wrenching sadness as she realizes she has no hope of winning and the stunned realization that her rescue has come at the hands of her enemy - the man whose position as Shire Reeve she now holds - the man who ignites an unwanted flame of desire in her - the traitor she has taken a solemn oath to kill.

A fugitive for the past six years, Griffin Dare has been tried in absentia, found guilty and condemned to death for joining forces with ghouls and murdering Mages.

I came across this debut novel at the recommendation of a friend. I am glad that I listened! The author created an interesting world that you are immediately drawn into. The main characters have sizzling chemistry and a great 'forbidden' romance! The secondary characters were all very likeable and I can't wait to read the second novel in this series. If you like a good fantasy novel, this is definitely for you!

Nancy Northcott's first novel of the Protector Series is fabulous. Renegade, very aptly named, is filled to the brim with action, suspense, and of course, sizzling chemistry between the hero and heroine. Griffin Dare has lived the last 6 years in exile from the mages' Council. The former shire reeve, or sheriff, stumbled upon a dark secret that led to the death of his closest friends, and important members of the council. Valeria Banning finds herself in circumstances that lead her to follow in Griffin's footsteps, and not only as the mage shire reeve.

I've never read a story that focused on ghouls and never read about any ghouls sucking the energy out of a mage while injecting venom. I've always seen them in the shadows of vampires, with very minor and gruesome roles, so I enjoyed seeing a different version. Northcott does an excellent job of introducing me to this paranormal world and I'd love to see more! Her writing is clear and to the point so everything I need to know about Val and Griff's world right now, I'll know before the novel gets into the thick of action. It also seems as though mages and ghouls aren't the only creatures haunting the human world. With the following installments I hope that Northcott will not only continue on with the strenuous ghoul-mage relationship, but touch a bit more on the dark evils that appeared in Renegade.

Renegade kept me on my toes as Griffin worked to bring Valeria over to his side. He believes there's a trader in the Council, but it's hard to convince someone who always plays by the rules. Even if he can't convince Val that he's innocent he still has others to watch out for. Griffin was an admirable character from his honor to his generosity. He cared for the homeless and kept the secrets of those who helped him during his exile.

Valeria Banning is the Sheriff (or shire reeve) of the Mage Council and it is her job to bring in Mage Criminals. She does her job well and holds to honor...until she meets Griffin Dare! Griff is a fugitive on the run for the past 6 years. He has eluded Mage shire reeves for all this time and after an attack he meets the current shire reeve Valeria Banning. Valeria and Griffin meet end up working together to try to prove Griffins innocence and uncover a traitor in the Mage Council. Valeria stuggles with the issues of working with a fugitive and Griffin struggles to protect Valeria whether she wants it or not.

I have to say this book gripped me from the beginning. Normally I am back and forth over simple Mage books. I usually prefer when other supernaturals are mixed in. However, Nancy Northcott managed to make this Mage world an interesting one. There is plenty of action and romance. The action scenes are descriptive enough for you to picture them in your mind while not being too detailed that you end up skipping over them. There is also suspense and mystery. It takes a while to find out who the traitor truly is and to know the full details of Griffin's past. I was happy to find very little mistakes if any in the grammar and spelling. This book was definitely worth the money to purchase and the time to read it. There are not a lot of sex scenes which is nice every once in a while, but the ones that are there are well written and feel natural. Not like the author is trying to use sex words that should not be used. Overall this book was very well written, flowed smooth, and kept me locked in. I definitely recommend this to anyone who likes Mage books, paranormal books, romance books, and even those who like action or suspense books.
