About the Author
Born in Wilmington Delaware, and raised mostly in Baton Rouge Louisiana and Baytown Texas, I had a southern childhood of climbing trees that were always either full of spanish moss or pecans. But what I liked most was reading. Books were always magical to me. When I was six, I made a little booth with a card table, like a lemonade-stand. But instead of drinks, I sold books I created. I wrote them in pencil on ruled paper, drew the illustrations and cover art with crayons and stapled them together. I started out a 5¢ a book, but it was only when I lowered the price down to free a little boy in my class came by on his bicycle and took them all.
From that day on, I never stopped writing for fun, but I veered off from professional writing due to the responsibilities and time restraints of a single mom. That was until I was introduced through books, to the woman who became my favorite historical character, Boudica. The Celtic Warrior Queen made me start writing professionally. I love history and in reading a book about the dark ages, I came across the rebel queen. She inspired me so much, I started jotting down notes, but they were fiction, visions of me involved in the Boudica revolt. Before I knew it, I had accidentally written a rough draft for a novel. And I've been writing books on purpose ever since. Drawing on my love of a happy ending I have currently penned over 30 published romance books under my name, Cornelia Amiri, and my pen name of Maeve Alpin.

By: Cornelia Amiri
Motivated by revenge, a Pict Princess has come to kill the Scottish King, Kenneth McAlpin.
Bethoc believes her father and betrothed were murdered in McAlpin's treason, but she's unaware of what really happened that day. None the less, she sets out to avenge their deaths.
She didn't intend to get caught.
Instead of having her executed as was his right, the Scots King gives Bethoc to his cousin Malcolm as a reward for his loyal service.
Bethoc is determined not to marry any Scot, even if Malcolm is ruggedly handsome. She accepts her fate resigning herself to the fact that her only other option is death.
Is marrying a Scot, a fate worth than death?
But Malcolm has other plans. Skilled with a bow and sword, Malcolm deduces that Bethoc would be a help to him when he takes the `Stone of Destiny' to Scone- the home of the Picts.
So they handfast.
Malcolm tells Bethoc not to fret because as soon as the year is over, he will be leaving Scone going back to `the world with no men and no women,' and she will be returned to her own people, free to wed whomever she chooses. But, Malcolm can't help admiring the fiery Princess, and she seems to be accepting him as well.
Their friendship turns to love. But it can never be - a secret- one that could destroy any bonds they may form, looms between them.
Can they overcome this obstacle? Because no Viking Warrior, or a calling to the sea could destroy their love.
Or could it?
You'll have to read to find out!
Ms. Amiri pens a story of true love, and the sacrifices people are willing to make to keep it!
I give this story *** stars!!!!
