Author: Kris Kennedy

I used to work in an office. I used to write a lot of reports. I used to have a lot of clients. I also used to cut out early whenever I could, to write down the stories that kept coming to me. I’d been known to turn the car around mid-commute, to hurry home and write down the idea that just occurred to me, before it disappeared into the mists again.

Now I write big, sweeping, super sexy romantic adventures full time. Well, part time. Whenever I’m not mom-ing. Which is an adventure all its own…

I write stories set in the wild and windswept middle ages. Hard heroes. Smart heroines. Big adventures. Mayhem. Villains. Grand love stories. Loads of sexytimes.

First he loved her. Then he abandoned her. Now he’s the only one who can save her.

A dashing con man on a mission of revenge…

Irishman Kier once served as the ‘Piper,’ enticing wealthy, unscrupulous men into dealings with other wealthy, unscrupulous men. It was a lucrative way of life for a man without a conscience, and he was very, very good.

But now, he’s on a mission of revenge, and the men who once betrayed him are about to pay. He’s planned for everything, from how he’ll lure them in, to how he’ll hammer the last nail into their coffins. He’s planned for everything. Except the one woman who can bring the whole thing crashing down around him.

A woman in peril with secrets to protect…

Sophia Darnly, daughter of the hanged Judge Darnly, is stunned by the sudden re-appearance of the outlaw lover who abandoned her years ago. And furious. And desperate. Hunted by dangerous men who want the fabled Darnly ledger and all its damning details about the wealthiest men in England, Sophia has no choice but to do the most dangerous thing of all: turn to Kier to save her.

A game that could get them both killed

Time has not erased Sophia from Kier’s heart, nor tamed her fiery spirit. But Kier is on a mission of revenge, and can’t allow even the woman he once loved to stop him.

When Sophia inserts herself into Kier’s schemes, he has no choice but to join forces. Posing as a wealthy shipping widow and her agent, the duo set a trap for their targets, but the coals of their rekindled passion burn hotter than either of them could have imagined. And when they discover they, too, are the targets of a deadly deception, the fate of their love, and of England itself, lies in the balance.

USA TODAY bestselling author Kris Kennedy spins a thrilling tale of medieval outlawry, scorching hot passion, and a warrior's redemption.

Outlawed and on the run, Irish knight Tadhg has a single mission: escape with the legendary dagger of King Richard before a brutal nobleman hunts him down. Trapped and almost cornered, his plan is simple: plant his contraband on the innocent woman with the long hair and complicated eyes. Then abduct her. Then use her as camouflage to escape. Igniting a raging passion is not part of the plan. Neither is falling in love.

Magdalena knows she should be terrified, but all she feels is excitement as this mysterious stranger drags her deeper into his perilous mission--and grand adventure.

Swept into a thrilling chase across France and England, their passion burns hot, forging a connection that melts the icy wall around Tadhg's war-torn heart. In the end, when the hunters close in, he's going to have to choose which matters more: his mission or the brave, passionate woman who's stolen his heart.
