<b>An Amazon #1 Bestseller in Medieval Romance!</b><br /><br /><i>Read the Epic novel that started it all....</i><br /><br /><br />1231 A.D. - After a nasty skirmish along the England/Scotland border at Bog Wood, a badly wounded knight has crawled off to die. <br /><br />As women from the Clan Scott fan out across the battlefield to collect the spoils of war, one woman breaks off from the pack. She is sickened by the tradition of stealing valuables off the dead and runs off to hide. In her hiding place, however, lingers the badly wounded knight. <br /><br />The young woman is frightened at first but she tends the knight and saves his life. Little does the Lady Jordan Scott know that she has just saved the life of the dreaded English knight known to her people as The Wolf…. <br /><br />Several months later, peace is proposed along the border. An English groom is offered to a Scots bride. The Lady Jordan Scott is that bride and her groom is the aged and powerful Earl of Teviot, John de Longley. When Lord de Longley sends his mighty and hated army to collect his new bride, the captain of the army personally retrieves Lady Jordan. When Jordan looks upon the fearsome English knight, she realizes there is something oddly familiar about his voice. When the man finally reveals himself, she sees that it is none other than the man whose life she saved, Sir William de Wolfe, the Scourge of the Scots.<br /><br />William has never forgotten about his Scots angel. As he escorts her back to Northwood Castle to wed his liege, each passing minute sees him fall more hopelessly in love with her. Jordan comes to know the man beyond The Wolf of legend, and so the love story begins.<br /><br />Join William and Jordan in a tale of true and utter devotion, of a love that bleeds beyond the boundaries of Scots and English, and where loyalty, friendship, and family bind them all together in this uncertain and political world. These are the dark days of dark times, but in the midst of a treacherous world of secrets and hatred, William and Jordan share a love that is only dreamt of.<br /><br /><br /><b>The de Wolfe Pack Series is Le Veque's flagship Medieval series with 14 novels.

From the award-winning author of HOUSE OF SILENCE... CAULDSTANE - a gothic novel in the romantic suspense tradition of Daphne du Maurier and Mary Stewart.<br /><br />~~~<br /><br />When ghostwriter Jenny Ryan is summoned to the Scottish Highlands by Sholto MacNab – retired adventurer and Laird of Cauldstane Castle – she’s prepared for travellers’ tales, but not the MacNabs’ violent and tragic history. <br /><br />Lust, betrayal and murder have blighted family fortunes for generations, together with an ancient curse. As members of the family confide their sins and their secrets, Jenny learns why Cauldstane’s uncertain future divides father and sons.<br /> <br />But someone resents Jenny’s presence. Someone thinks she’s getting too close to Alec MacNab – swordsmith, widower and heir to Cauldstane. Someone will stop at nothing until Jenny has been driven away. Or driven mad. <br /><br />“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Especially a dead woman. <br /><br />~~~<br /><br />Reviews for CAULDSTANE...<br /><br />"Absolutely modern and gloriously gothic... There's a remote and decrepit Scottish castle, (with a curse attached, of course), a wicked stepmother, a feisty but emotionally vulnerable heroine, more handsome men than you can shake a sword at, and a very dangerous ghost."<br />KATHLEEN JONES, author of Margaret Forster: A Life in Books<br /><br />"The castle is a character in its own right, as evocative as Manderley, and a perfect setting for this gothic tale of love and the struggle between good and evil."<br />I PREFER READING book blog.<br /><br />~~~<br /><br />Praise for Linda Gillard's other novels...<br /><br />"The emotional power in these novels makes this reviewer reflect on how Charlotte and Emily Bronte might have written if they were living and writing now." <br />NORTHWORDS NOW<br /><br />"STAR GAZING was a joy to read from the first page to the last... Romantic and quirky and beautifully written." <br />www.lovereading.co.uk<br /><br />"HOUSE OF SILENCE is one of those books you'll put everything else on hold for." <br />CORNFLOWER BOOKS blog<br /><br />EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY - "A love story filled with passion and paint-stripping honesty." <br />HIGHLANDS & ISLANDS ARTS JOURNAL
