Description

In The Highlander, a stunning, gorgeous Victorian romance from Kerrigan Byrne, can the fiercest master of battle conquer a woman's heart?
They call him the Demon Highlander. The fearsome Lieutenant Colonel Liam MacKenzie is known for his superhuman strength, towering presence, and fiery passion in the heat of battle. As Laird to the MacKenzie clan, the undefeated Marquess has vanquished his foes with all rage and wrath of his barbaric Highland ancestors. But when an English governess arrives to care for his children, the master of war finds himself up against his greatest opponent. . . in the game of love.
Defying all expectations, Miss Philomena is no plain-faced spinster but a ravishing beauty with voluptuous curves and haughty full lips that rattle the Laird to his core. Unintimidated by her master's raw masculinity and savage ways, the headstrong lass manages to tame not only his wild children but the beast in his soul. With each passing day, Liam grows fonder of Miss Mena—and more suspicious. What secret is she hiding behind those emerald eyes? What darkness brought her to his keep? And how can he conquer this magnificent woman's heart . . . without surrendering his own?
"Romantic, lush, and suspenseful." —Suzanne Enoch on The Highwayman

      • bioText:

        Kerrigan Byrne has done many things to pay the bills, from law enforcement to belly dance instructor. Now she's finally able to have the career she'd decided upon at thirteen when she announced to her very skeptical family that she was going to "grow up to be a romance novelist." Whether she's writing about Celtic Druids, Victorian bad boys, or brash Irish FBI Agents, Kerrigan uses her borderline-obsessive passion for history, her extensive Celtic ancestry, and her love of Shakespeare in almost every story.
        Kerrigan lives with her husband on the coast of Washington State's Olympic Peninsula in a Victorian-era town almost frozen in time. When she's not writing, you might find her on the beach with her dogs, lounging at a local vineyard or brewery, or buying things she doesn't need at antique stores.
        Her novels with St. Martin's Press include the Victorian Rebels series (starting with The Highwayman) and Devil You Know series (which begins with How To Love A Duke in Ten Days).

        August 10, 2015
        Byrne’s gritty first Victorian Rebels novel doesn’t flinch from Victorian London’s darker side. When Farah Mackenzie is unexpectedly abducted, the last thing she expects is a second chance at love—especially with Dorian Blackwell, a shadowy figure in London’s criminal underground. Dorian learned harsh lessons of survival from his youth in Newgate Prison alongside Farah’s childhood sweetheart, Dougan. He knows all of Farah’s secrets, even her true identity as an heiress, and he offers her the opportunity to reclaim her inheritance and to avenge Dougan’s death. But all Farah wants is a child of her own. The romance is raw, edgy, and explosive. There are no flowers, soft words of poetry, or gentle strains of music. Farah alternates between fascination with and hatred for Dorian, simultaneously drawn to his ugly past and repelled by the violence and anger surrounding him. Dorian cannot deny Farah anything, but he also resorts to cruelty to keep her at a distance. Gradually they grow closer; Dorian offers her protection and all the resources at his disposal, and Farah reminds him of the softer, kinder, gentler side of human nature. Theirs is not a pretty tale, but the path they take through adversity makes the triumph of love deeply satisfying. Agent: Christine Witthohn, Book Cents Literary Agency.

        Starred review from August 1, 2016

        Statuesque, titian-haired Philomena Lockhart is nothing like the staid, elderly governess Laird Liam MacKenzie, Marquess Ravencroft, was hoping for--and he's not happy about it. For one thing, she's far too young to deal with two teenagers; for another, she's much too lovely and enticing for his peace of mind--she doesn't even have the sense to be afraid of him, the Demon Highlander. But Liam's children need help, and Mena is determined to stay, especially as the remote Highland keep is her only sanctuary from a man determined to destroy her--her husband. Engaging children, a fascinating, colorful supporting cast, and an eerie mystery keep the story moving in the right direction. VERDICT A fiercely protective, emotionally damaged hero and a heroine living in fear for her life find strength and healing in an intense story rife with chilling evil, brutal violence, and heart-melting sensuality that has issues of trust and honesty at its core. Another hit from the phenomenal Byrne (The Hunter); she lives at the base of the Rockies.
