Adrian

by Heather Grothaus

In the medieval Holy Land, four brave Crusaders fight tyranny and betrayal. They are the Brotherhood of Fallen Angels--and one by one, they may discover that love is the greatest adventure of all... From palaces and cathedrals to fortresses, Adrian Hailsworth's engineering genius is evident across the land--including the castle of Chastellet. But a bloody siege has left the stronghold, and Adrian, in ruins. Now a wanted man, he is forced into hiding at The Brotherhood of Fallen Angels Abbey, his brilliant mind plagued with nightmares, his spirit broken--until Father Victor presents him with a fiery redhead in need of help only Adrian can give... Maisie Lindsay is the lady-in-waiting to the Queen of Wyldonna, a small kingdom off the Scottish coast that is being blackmailed--by none other than the Brotherhood's most treacherous enemy. The only chance of saving Wyldonna lies in unearthing its vast fortune, hidden within a labyrinth of deadly traps and secret passages. The challenge enlivens Adrian--as does the passion Maisie ignites. But she is far more than she appears, and the truth may force Adrian to sacrifice his heart's longing to save her, before it's too late for them all...

The Champion

by Heather Grothaus

England 1076. An era of kings and their loyal knights, of grand castles and courts, and of passions too bold to be denied. Brought to life with power and grace, this is the story of a nobleman in need of a wife. . . and the woman who offers him the love of a lifetime. Nicholas FitzTodd, Baron of Crane, has little interest in marriage--the privileges of rank are too many and too pleasurable. But when the bride he finally chooses refuses him, he takes out his frustration in wine and women. Simone DuRoche is but another lovely temptation, until a moment of indiscretion results in a hasty wedding. Nick is furious--Simone may be beautiful, but she is nearly penniless and rumored to be mad. . . Simone hardly expects her reluctant husband to believe that her young brothers ghost has followed her to England--or that she suspects his death was murder. Marriage to the fierce, guarded Nicholas is difficult enough. But when she learns the truth behind her brothers death, a dangerous family secret threatens the fragile peace she and Nicholas have achieved, and she must risk everything she holds dear to prove that her love is worth fighting for. . . "A spirited tale rich in intrigue, betrayal, ancient magic, and a love destined to overcome all odds. " --Hannah Howell, New York Times bestselling author, on The Warrior
