An Irresistible Shadow by Kirsten S. Blacketer
Lady Evelyn Montgomery, only daughter of the Baron of Rayne, detests
the thought of marriage. She will never allow a man to control her.
Crushed by the constraints of propriety, she steals away from the safety
of the keep and stumbles onto a plot designed to stir up trouble between
England and Scotland. When a mysterious hooded man saves her, she
fights her attraction to him as they join forces to hunt down a traitor and
save her father. But can she save her heart?
Gabriel is a Shadow Guardian. Hiding beneath his black cowl and
blending into the night, he is sworn to protect the Baron's daughter. The spirited Lady Evelyn is far from
the delicate flower he anticipated. She makes herself crystal clear, no man will possess her. Can he
prove to her that love can be more than just possession? Or will the traitor they seek tear them apart
~About the Author~
Stick her in the middle of a chaotic home with two children, a hyperactive dog, and a camouflage
wearing husband, and she can cook and clean with the best of them. But when the sun goes down and
the children are nestled in bed fast asleep, she tucks away her pots and broom and like Cinderella
Her characters creep forth from the dark recesses of her mind taking their places in the castles and
forests built from her words. No simpering heroines linger there with forlorn gazes turned to the horizon,
waiting for their Prince Charming. They straighten their spine, arming themselves with blade and bow,
prepared to do their part in defense of their honor and destiny. She breathes life into the women she
believes our ancestors to be, showing how they lived and loved with passion and grace.
Never bored by the tales still left to tell, she battles the ever sarcastic muse in her quest for romance.
