I have a love for history and have been an avid reader from a young age. As a child I would spend hours lying in the grass, absorbed in the tales and characters of a story. After many years of reading the books penned by others, I finally decided to write my own.
When I am not writing, I enjoy traveling and cooking. One of my favorite places to visit is the United Kingdom. The landscape and the castles are simply majestic and each has a rich history that inspires the imagination. Aside from writing, a large portion of my day is spent teaching biology classes at a local college as I hold both a masters and doctorate degree in biological science. I am passionate about education and getting students interested in science. I am a true southern girl, raised in Florida and currently live in Tallahassee with my family.
The pagan Vikings pillage the shores of Anglo-Saxon England, striking fear in the hearts of the people. Fighting alongside the men, Finna Vidisdóttir is all too happy to participate in their destruction, until a near-fatal defeat lands her in the hands of the enemy.
Ealdorman Colby de Beaufou is the man responsible for her downfall. Shocked to find a woman on the battlefield, he holds Finna captive while he barters with her people. Though she is a sworn enemy, Colby cannot deny his growing desire for the headstrong prisoner.
Finna intends to hate him, but finds Colby far more honorable and handsome than she ever expected . . .
A deep, heated passion ignites between them, testing the bounds of their loyalty and love. Will Finna surrender her heart or remain true to her blood ties?
