Description The Heretic Queen:
Nefertari, niece of the famed heretic queen Nefertiti, becomes part of the court of Pharaoh Seti I after her family is deposed, and she befriends Ramesses II, the young crown prince. When Ramesses is made co-monarch, he weds Iset, the granddaughter of a harem girl backed by Seti's conniving sister, Henuttawy, the priestess of Isis.
As Nefertari's position in the court becomes tenuous, she realizes that she, too, wants to marry Ramesses and enlists the help of Seti's other sister, Woserit.
But when Nefertari succeeds in wedding Ramesses, power struggles and court intrigues threaten her security, and it is questionable whether the Egyptian people will accept a heretic descendant as their ruler or if civil war will erupt.
I won this at http://nosuchthingas2manybooks.blogspot.com/. Thank you Blanche for hosting this wonderful contest! And a big thank you to Sue-Ellen for sending me TWO books! I can’t wait to start reading the books you have send, and also thank you for signing them!
Description A Highlander’s Temptation:
Darroc MacConacher spends sleepless nights dreaming of a raven-haired beauty who makes him ache with desire. Then his dream comes true: the lady with her lush curves and fair skin appears shipwrecked on his shores. Darroc is immediately drawn to her strength and beauty, and from the moment she lays eyes on this powerful, broad-shouldered warrior, Lady Arabella MacKenzie knows she'll never want another man.
But theirs is a forbidden love.
The MacKenzies drove the MacConachers from their lands and destroyed their honor. Now, Darroc can use this sapphire-eyed seductress to shatter his foes. Yet how can he deny the passion that burns between him and Arabella, and ruin the one woman who touches his very soul?
Description Devil in a Kilt:
Duncan MacKenzie, a 14th century knight, is forced to marry to ease tensions between his clan and the MacDonnells. He chooses Linnet MacDonnell, a plain-looking girl, who is also a renowned seer. Duncan believes she can explain the truth behind his tormented past. In Duncan, Linnet sees the spitting image of the dark knight of her most frightening girlhood visions ... a man who will make her long for the pure, fierce love that she has always resisted and -- even with her seer's gift -- never knew she craved.
