USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Authors

Four bestselling Scottish romance authors take you on an epic journey through the heart of Scotland…

From within the soul of a special stone, the embodiment of the heart of Scotland, a protector is selected. A woman with a pure heart and the ferocity of a warrior is called to the fairy pools on the Isle of Skye upon the death of the previous protector. However, nature has a way of balancing itself, and so with each call to a Protector comes the call of an evil force, set on using the stone for their own purpose. These are the stories of the Protectors of the Heart of Scotland, the stone they seek to keep safe and the love that strengthens and emboldens them.

Cassandra by Madeline Martin – Together their power is brilliant. But when destiny rivals the safety of family and the whole of Scotland hangs in the balance, can their love survive the required sacrifice?

“Well written tragedy that is told from the perspective of someone who was there. The only ones who really know what it was like.” -Tom T.

“They’re all right here … gone. Every one of them pulverized into dust. When those towers came crashing down, it was like they were all caught in a giant food processor.”

On September 11 2001 the world stopped.

An attack on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center in New York on a serene September morning changed the course of world history.

The final death toll from the iconic twin towers reached 2,606.

Thousands were never found, as retired New York police officer Tony Zeoli’s harrowing eye-witness account, about the search-and-recovery effort, so graphically records.

Tony was a founding member of a group of retired police officers who became known as Recovery Team Romeo – a dozen men who spent nearly nine months searching for bodies at Ground Zero and refusing to be paid for it.

These men instantly came out of retirement, made their different ways to the site and worked as an independent recovery team.

They have become a Police Department legend.

But such personal sacrifice – such heroism – exacted a terrible price on these individuals whose lives could never be the same after they passed through the ‘gates of hell’ and descended into that awful pit to recover the dead.

Rising From The Ashes is a powerful and compelling account of the aftermath of 9/11.

In a feel-good romance that will steal your heart, a charming small town brings together two people who could each use a fresh start—and it’s all thanks to a little pillowtalk.

Kennedy Walters used to be lucky in love—until tragedy struck. Now she’s come to the lakeside town of Lyra Valley to finally put the past behind her. But while Kennedy’s staying at a local B&B, she is shocked to find herself undeniably drawn to a sweet-talking hometown heartthrob. Kennedy isn’t sure if she’s ready to move on—and yet one look in Aaron Sheppard’s eyes makes her wish he’d make his move.

Aaron returned to Lyra Valley because he was fed up with the big city and everything he was missing: beautiful, down-to-earth girls like Kennedy. Turns out Aaron has more in common with Kennedy than he realized, and suddenly he wonders if he should give her a little space. But after a power outage strands them together, their innocent flirtation turns to intimate conversation. And over the course of a night that neither will ever forget, Aaron and Kennedy learn just how compatible they could be—if only they’d let themselves fall into each other’s arms.
