But justice is in his blood.
In fact, even after rubbing a blackened brooch and being sent back to eighteenth century England, one of the first things he witnesses is a pickpocket in the crowd. A beautiful pickpocket who will lead him on a journey where he will find himself again—in the eyes of a thief.
Lady Charlotte Whimsey, daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Croydon has been picking pockets since she was twelve. She’s good at it. She’s not about to let the fact that her estranged father is a judge stop her, or that he hires the handsome, dark-haired stranger who shows up at the door to keep law and order in Croydon, and also to keep her under control. After a failed attempt at out-witting the new lawman, she finds herself in his care—and it isn’t so bad. She expects to fight with him. She doesn’t expect to fall in love with his rare smiles and his tender gaze. He’s menacing, rough, and gritty, and he makes her forget everyone else.
But the closer she grows to the detective, the closer he grows to discovering how deeply she’s involved with the elite thieves known as The Horsemen, guilty of murder.
Will this man of honor ever look at her as anything but a criminal when the truth becomes known? Will Charlotte give up everything for him? Can Michael give up the only woman his heart will ever love? And when the dust all clears what will he do when he learns he’s the son of a king?

RAVISHED BY A HIGHLANDER
A Scottish warrior and a Norman maiden clash in this stunning epic!
Cainnech (Cain) MacPherson’s hatred for the English was born when he was a lad of seven, the day they raided his village and killed his family. They took everything from him without mercy and tossed him onto the battlefield, where the memory of love faded to dust and left nothing in its wake but violence.
Now, as Robert the Bruce’s most formidable, most lethal warrior, he wreaks havoc on his enemy, taking land by force and without mercy. But when he raids a small castle in Northumberland, he faces his greatest opponent yet—a bold, beautiful Norman lass who will see him dead at any cost rather than give up her home…even if it means tearing open his armored heart and stirring the ashes that remain.
Aleysia d’Argentan will do anything to keep the hated Scots out of her castle and away from her villagers. She has prepared for this day for the last four years, building traps in the forest, poisoning the grain, and hiding daggers wherever she could use them to kill her enemy. But she isn’t prepared for the brawny, brooding Highland warlord who invades her life—and her heart. He is an infuriating, irresistible opponent with a curious touch, a smoldering kiss, and a reluctant smile that begins to shine on her alone.
Can the ashes of his heart be stirred into flame by his enemy?

Their leader is a tall, broad, golden warrior who vows to protect her, and does. He is a savage and she does everything to resist him. But how does one resist a man with a kitten cuddled in the crook of his neck? No matter what he has trained to be, he is patient and gentle with her. He begins to get into her blood, her bones. When he kisses her, slowly, passionately, eager for more, he makes her question her future vows.
But Silene’s heart is forbidden. If she lets Captain MacPherson have it, her uncle will lose the church’s support and they likely won’t live a day before he has them hunted down and possibly killed.
How much will Galeren and Silene risk for love?
