Dark romance in medieval Wales and England. A secret baby in the 17th century Scottish highlands. Christmas in 16th century Denmark. In an unusual development, the RONE candidates in historical romance are slender for the periods pre-dating regency romance resulting in this wide ranging set of finalists.
The son of The Dark Lord joins forces with the Executioner Knights to bring you the Medieval Romance you’ve been waiting for. It’s a no-holds barred, dark and passionate romance where the rules don’t apply.
Prepare to enter the Darkness…
Coleby de Velt is the firstborn son of the notorious Dark Lord, Ajax de Velt. He grew up idolizing his father—and knowing all about his history—and he has his father’s dark streak. That makes him a perfect agent for William Marshal and the Executioner Knights. As William Marshal himself says—’Tis better to be at the Devil’s right hand than in his path…’ And Coleby is definitely the Devil.
He’s the spawn of The Dark Lord and everything that goes with it.
When Coleby falls for an unusual woman, it’s with his whole heart. He doesn’t know how to do anything half-measure—and he doesn’t know how to protect himself. Lady Corisande “Cori” de Bourges, an accomplished woman of considerable talent, has bewitched him and for a sweet moment in time, Coleby experiences something he’s never known before—a blooming love and a calm to his restless soul he can’t begin to describe. He believes he has finally found happiness. Perhaps the darkness has finally met with the light.
Until the Scots attack and Cori is captured.
Unfortunately for the Scots, The Dark Spawn is unleashed. Coleby will stop at nothing to rescue his beloved Cori, but when he finally regains her with surprising ease, a horrible truth is revealed.
All is not as it seems.
Can Coleby forgive the unforgivable? Or will The Dark Spawn’s heart turn cold?
Note: This is a dark romance with elements of Medieval brutality, as is expected in the Battle Lords of de Velt series. There is an unconventional love story with unconventional elements, but as always, a satisfying HEA.)
While searching for his son, he finds something he never expected: a woman to love.
If only she didn’t hate him…
Clan MacCoinnich is the only family Magnus de Gray has ever known. But when a message catches up with him five years too late, he discovers he has more family than he thought. He has a son. But the dear lady who gave him this gift died while bringing the wee one into the world. Magnus isn’t about to abandon his child—not the way his father abandoned him. He’s determined to find the boy and bring him home to Clan MacCoinnich.
Brenna Maxwell loved her sister Bree with all her heart, but if she could reach beyond the grave, she would shake her until her teeth rattled. All Brenna ever wanted was to be a healer and even convinced her cruel father to let her leave the keep for training. She returned to find her unmarried sister pregnant and both of them banished from the clan. While on the run, her sister died bringing the babe into the world, leaving Brenna with the precious child to love and protect.
She spent years hating this man she had never met. The selfish womanizer responsible for her sister’s death and more pain and suffering than she could bear to think about. But then he saved her life. And he’s kind. And it turns out he’s not a womanizer at all, but a quiet warrior who struggles to say what he really means. He’s just a man who wants to take care of his son and make up for the past.
How can she hate a man like that? A man determined to make her love him?

Let the good times roll!
That’s Ava Martin’s retirement plan at least, until gray aliens abduct her from the middle of the Nevada desert. In her hair rollers no less! Talk about a rude awakening for this UFO skeptic. And her sexy, winged rescuer is no help either; he’s more concerned about obeying orders. Seems like there’s only one way for her to get home—hijack his ship.
All in the line of duty.
The grays have been a burr in Captain Sovah Raptorclaw’s wing throughout his law-enforcement career, and now they have absconded with half his crew. If only the crazy stopped there. The stunning female he has rescued is from a planet he has never heard of, and she has him breaking every rule to keep her in his life.
Together, Ava and Sovah must make a daring rescue, return a cow (and other Earthlings) home, and end the grays’ reign of terror. But, can they do it all without losing each other in the process?
Welcome to the Silverstar Mates series, featuring intergalactic love matches for those over fifty.
