They are the King's Hunters, tasked with keeping His Majesty's peace in the Highlands, bringing evil-doers to justice on their travels. The helmets they wear not only obscure their features and assure anonymity, they mark the men as Not To Be Trifled With. But Barclay, Payton, Craig and Drummond are about to be trifled with in a big way, when their missions pit them against heroines strong enough to stand up to them!
Kilty As Sin
He’s a rake, a rogue, and a charmer…until one mission changes it all.
As one of the King’s Hunters—an elite group of Highland lawmen charged with keeping the peace—Barclay is used to lasses throwing themselves at him, despite the helmet he wears on all missions. He doesn’t mind the attention in the least…until he’s assigned to track down the runaway daughter of one of His Majesty’s supporters, and meets a woman who shouldn't be charmed.
Lady Grace MacDonald is determined not to marry the man her father has chosen for her. She may look fragile and sweet, but she has reserves of strength Barclay is about to discover. Right after he pulls her out of the bog she’s landed in. Nay, not a metaphor; an actual bog has just stolen her left shoe!
Grace might be livid the mysterious, helmed Hunter is planning to return her home, but she still has a few more days to savor her freedom…and Barclay is just the one to teach her about the world. The problem? For the first time ever, Barclay is uncertain he should be seducing a lady like her! But why, even when he’s dragging her back to marry another man, does she make him feel like a hero?
Warning: Utterly ridiculous! Another fun start to a spicy, laugh-out-loud medieval series from USA Today Bestseller Caroline Lee!
Well, are they married, or aren't they? And does it matter?
When Payton MacIntyre, quiet King’s Hunter, is sent to an Abbey to challenge the bandits threatening the land, he doesn’t expect to ride away with a wife. In fact, he’s still not convinced he’s actually married to the intriguing Flora, but that’s what he tells his family to escape their seasonal nagging-him-about-marriage session. But what will this new wife of his think when he finally removes his helmet and exposes his hideously scarred visage?
Desperate to escape the cruel Abbot and find her missing younger brother, Flora goes along with the phony marriage…she just doesn’t expect the Hunter to treat her so kindly. He might be reluctant to show his face, but his soft words—and softer touches—leave her breathless. And when he defends her to his family while searching for her brother, Flora falls even more in love.
But Yule is approaching, and Flora’s growing contentment is threatened by an old danger. Is her acceptance of Payton—and his belief in her love—enough to clear this threat from the Highlands, or will the new year bring a truth which will destroy them?
Kilty By Association
Craig Oliphant is known for his brawn, not his brains, but he is proud of who he is and what he’s accomplished. After years working the blacksmithy, he’s passed the test to become a trusted member of the King’s Hunters, and now he’s been assigned a mission which can bring him cartloads of glory.
Or drive him mad—one of the two.
Lady Elspeth Sinclair is in dire need of a bodyguard; not for her, but for her twelve-year-old son and the other four children as well. Her husband’s death left her son not just the next Laird Sinclair, but also the Earl of Dungotit…and someone wants him dead. The huge Hunter assigned to her family might be able to keep them safe, but no one warned her that after years of horror, Craig might be the one to rekindle surprising feelings. But should a widow engage in such goings-on with her bodyguard, especially since they come from such different worlds?
Warning: So many shenanigans! Get ready for some super-hot, laugh-out-loud adventures in this third addition to the Kilty Pleasures series!
