With This Kiss – Kerrigan Byrne

There was magic in the air, yet few could see it. To the mortal eye there was nothing but a brash, bullying Scottish storm that blew like the Devil’s breath from the gray swirling waters of the Sound of Mull. Lightning splintered the midnight sky, and thunder bellowed. Rain poured down from the heavens, and […]

The Earl of Christmas Past – Kerrigan Byrne

FATE HAD BEEN Vanessa Latimer’s foe since she could remember. She was the most unlucky, ungainly person of her acquaintance, and had resigned herself to an early death. However, she always imagined said death would be glorious, as well. Or at least memorable. Something like tripping and accidentally sacrificing herself to a volcano in the […]

The Devil in Her Bed – Kerrigan Byrne

Pippa Hargrave was about to have her heart broken. When she heard the Cavendish twins were turned out of the schoolroom so early on this particular afternoon, she tore through the Mont Claire estate knowing they’d spill out onto the lawn and head for their hedge maze. Her father, Charles Hargrave, looked up from the […]

Seducing a Stranger – Kerrigan Byrne

The devil’s breath was a persistent cold prickle on Cutter Morley’s neck. He’d awoken with a start in the wee hours of the morning, propped up against the doorway to St. Dismas where he’d taken refuge. Vicar Applewhite had fallen ill, and so the rectory was locked against vagrants today. More’s the pity. He’d not […]

Dancing With Danger – Kerrigan Byrne

A n incomparable idiot. It was the only description for the man blocking Mercy Goode from the murder scene she’d discovered her own self. And yet he had the audacity to sneer down at her in that condescending way menial men did when granted a little bit of authority. His shiny badge declared him Constable […]

Courting Trouble – Kerrigan Byrne

A s Honoria’s blood pooled onto the dock from the bullet wound, she felt oddly relieved. She was ready to die. Marriage to William Mosby, the Viscount Woodhaven, had first stripped her of any innocence she’d had left. Then of her joy. Her confidence. And finally, her decency. To slake her unceasing misery—or perhaps in […]

All Scot and Bothered – Kerrigan Byrne

According to Cecelia Teague’s calculations, she approached the close of her second day in captivity. She couldn’t remember the last time her father had locked her in the cellar’s green room for so long. Perhaps he’d finally gone mad. Would he ever unlock that door again? Would the world forget she ever existed? The questions […]

The Hunter – Kerrigan Byrne

This was nothing short of torture. Christopher Argent’s muscles shook with uncontrollable strain. Sweat mingled with the freezing rain and made infuriating trails of moisture, mirroring the sensation of small vermin crawling down his twitching flesh. He’d have given his soul to scratch them away. Teeth clenched until his jaw ached, Christopher dared not show […]

The Highwayman – Kerrigan Byrne

Blood ran down Dougan Mackenzie’s forearms as he crouched against the ancient stone wall separating the grounds of Applecross Orphanage from the wild mountains beyond. None of the other children ventured here. The wall protected the stooped and faded headstones that rose from thick carpets of moss and heather fed by the bones of the […]

The Duke – Kerrigan Byrne

Imogen Pritchard shuddered as the fine hairs on her body prickled with alarm. The usually oppressive atmosphere of the Bare Kitten Gin and Dance Hall turned electric with danger, charging every nerve in her body with the awareness of an advancing predator. After placing her armful of empty ale and gin glasses on the sideboard, […]

The Highlander – Kerrigan Byrne

Something has to be done, Liam Mackenzie decided as he stared down at his gruesome discovery. About the evil man who ruled the Mackenzie of Wester Ross with sadistic whims and cold terror. About the hollow-eyed woman who’d replaced Liam’s own wretched mother, haunting the halls of Ravencroft Keep like a thin, tormented specter of […]

The Business of Blood – Kerrigan Byrne

The arrangement of Frank Sawyer’s corpse was queer enough to lend me pause. He hung upside down in the common room, suspended from the rafter by one foot, the other bent behind him, his spindly legs forming a strange triangle. I’d seen too many bodies to recall the exact number but, in my experience, those […]

Legendary Lovers – Kerrigan Byrne

I want his death to be quick and painless. He’s my brother, after all.” Rory MacKay didn’t meet Connor’s eyes as he said this. Instead, he tracked the armored coach trundling along the river Tay where the water ran into the loch, which boasted the same name. Connor knew it was around noon, though storm […]
