Rebellion

Kameron Ballan, heir to the Laird of Ballanclaire, has no respect for his father's titles and treaties. They've gotten him naught but trouble--and a betrothal to a sickly Spanish princess. So when his latest peccadillo gets him transported to America to subdue the restless colonies, he's ready to prove his worth as a man, not a figurehead.

Seduction

Constant Ridgely, seventh daughter of an upright patriot family, discovers Kam beaten senseless by a crowd of colonists. She must hide him or watch him die, but the strange, brawny Scotsman inflames passions she's never guessed at. . .

Deception

Under Constant's ministrations, Kam discovers a lovely, innocent woman whose hands stir his desires. But much is at stake and there is much to lose, and their happiness depends on a risk so great only the truly lost would dare...

 

excerpt

“That was a declination? God help the poor ass you do accept. He’ll need sustenance to survive the betrothal party after being subjected to you.”

Constant attacked the next rope with a vengeance. She had it sawn clear through and pulled from between his legs without a bit of compassion. She slid it roughly against his skin without a twinge of conscience.

“I want you to know I do not appreciate what you say, Kameron. I don’t. I think you’re calling the kettle black. And it isn’t fair. You told me not to accept him unless he made me feel akin to how you do. So, I did that. I checked. And I wasn’t the least bit passionate about it, either.”

“You’re a born...seductress. You ooze passion...with every breath coming from your body. I only wish…it was working.”

“With what?” she asked icily.

“Taking my mind off this God-damned, bloody pain.”

He choked through what could only be a sob, and Constant was instantly at his side, bending over him.

“Kameron?” she whispered.

He didn’t answer. He just shook his head while his entire frame jerked. Constant watched him for a moment, wondering how she could have missed something so innately raw and obvious. She reached for his head and turned him. He didn’t stop her. His face was scrunched into lines of agony, and there were tears streaking down both cheeks.

“Oh, Kameron. I didn’t know. Why didn’t you say something?”

“Because I’m a strictly reared, stubborn, bloodless Highlander, that’s why. We never admit pain. Or injury. Or hurt. We embrace it. So, why doona’ you cease pitying me and finish with the ropes? I already told you, I canna’ leave your loft without the use of at least one leg. Perhaps you could keep up your end of the argument and assist me with it rather than stare at me like I’m a lost yearling pup. Unless you have a better idea?”

Constant sat back and studied him. Then she reached behind her back and started unbuttoning her dress.

 

Reviews Forever Knight

"...Constant and Kameron are feisty and likable characters, and the historical details of colonial life are fascinating..." - Booklist


lasr reviews
4.5 STARS!

"...The culture in the American Colonies and in Scotland comes alive as Jackie Ivie takes her characters on their perilous journey. She creates some antagonists that one can really come to abhor. Conversely, she creates other characters that creep right into the heart. Constant’s little brother Henry leaves a lasting impression and the babies Benjamin and Abigail do their part admirably and help propel the plot along at a fever pitch at times. Moreover, Ms. Ivie weaves in passion, romance, and sizzling sexual moments that help the reader know just how deep and caring a love Constant and Kameron have for each other. This author knows how to rev of the heart rate and also how to make the heart ache for the characters as well as make it soar with joy. Laird of Ballanclaire has some unique twists and turns that kept me totally intrigued. Good reading!" - Reviewed by Camellia for Long And Short Reviews (LASR)
