Welcome back! Today I have a snippet from an exciting new release from Cathy and DD MacRae, The Prince's Highland Bride. It's part of their Hardy Heroines Series. Check this out:
Free of court intrigue, Phillipe seeks a new start in life. Falling in love was not in his plans. Until he met Maggie MacLaren.
Sounds great! And I'm continuing my excerpt from Eyes of the Seer where things are heating up between Astrid and Marcán on Cathy's Blog.
The youngest, her pale gold hair floating about her shoulders, silken strands slipping free from two long braids, tucked a hand in Maggie’s and leaned close.
Maggie tilted her head to the child.
“Narfi caught a mouse,” the little girl whispered, brown eyes wide. She slipped a thumb into her mouth.
“A mouse? Whatever for?”
“To feed yer falcon!” The lad propped his fists on his hips. “Svala doesnae like mice.”

Phillipe de Poitiers, a prince of Antioch, finds himself a breath away from wrongful execution. Risking everything, he leaves behind his crown, his family, his country—and a body sworn to be his by the Bishop, himself.
Free of court intrigue and drawn to Scotland by memories of a woman who once possessed his heart, Phillipe sells his sword to pay for his travels and accepts the task of guarding the daughter of Laird MacLaren.
When Maggie MacLaren’s abusive marriage fails, she wants nothing more than to retire to her childhood home on the banks of Loch Lomond. Trouble follows her, putting her clan in danger, and she travels to the Isle of Hola, placing her safety in the hands of a mysterious mercenary with a haunted smile and a kind heart.
As Maggie and Phillipe struggle with their pasts, love blooms. But when a pirate’s treasure offers a seductive lure, will it free them—or prove the downfall of all they hold dear?
