Book II of The Ladies of Lore Series
When poisonings are an everyday occurrence, healer Rosalyn Macpherson must be ready with an antidote. Unless it’s for the English Lord who means to claim her clan’s Highland castle.
What’s in a name? Everything, for Lord Lachlan de Leverton, a charismatic English aristocrat. He’ll break the law to sever his ties to his notorious family. But first, he must secure the deed to Fyvie Castle before the feisty Scottish lass wins it.
Because of their conflicting claims, Rosalyn and Lachlan are ordered to appear in Edinburgh’s royal court, and in an unusual twist of fate, they are assigned as guardians, rather than prisoners, to a caravan carrying the Golden Rose, a papal gift for the King of Scots.
When the royal decree becomes a forced union between the two, it’s not the remedy Rosalyn had hoped for, but by now she doesn’t hate this Englishman quite as much.
Before the knot is tied, the Rose is stolen and Lachlan’s suspected of the crime. Rosalyn then faces the hardest decision yet. Must she sacrifice her precious Philosophers Stone or the land she loves, or both, to save him?
Book III of The Ladies of Lore Series
A lifesaving antidote grows as a rare rose on an isle full of faerie lore. Healer Ursula Fraser won’t risk delivering her best friend’s twins without it, but first she’ll need a guide and a miracle.
Both come in the form of battle-scarred laird Alasdair MacLeod, a Highlander who seeks to avenge his father’s death and claim the title, Lord of the Isles. He requires an heir, not a wife. But when he offers her his guidance, he also offers her his bed and a bargain.
Insulted, but fearless, Ursula expects she’ll triumph without sacrifice until Alasdair takes a potion of accidental attraction and she’s certain he’s confusing love with infatuation. Even when he risks all to save her from the murderous MacDonalds, is her price is too high for him to pay?
Will this Highlander who harbors a family secret keep her from returning to Fyvie Castle in time for the twins delivery? Or will a faerie prophecy filled with magic and a roll of the dice settle all the scores?
The answers lie in The Secret of Skye Isle.
Born in Norway, and globetrotting at a young age, Marisa had glimpses into the history that shaped the world. Castles, manor homes, battlefields, artifacts, and more, were accessible to her growing up as she traveled Europe and Scandinavia.
It’s no wonder the stories she created for her school papers, and now as an adult historical romance author, are filled with real history and saga. As she continues her travels to exotic locals, her curious nature and love of romance allows her to create stories that carry the reader back in time. When you are immersed in one of her books, you can almost feel, taste and touch where the stories take place.
When she’s not crafting a manuscript, Marisa stays busy in her ‘day job’ working on product branding and social media. An award-winning producer/director/marketer, she lives in Southern Ohio with James, her first love and knight in shining armor.
