In the rugged Scottish Highlands, a mighty clansman weds a headstrong heiress against her will-and discovers a fiery passion he-ll risk his life to protect-

A Man Of Power
Payton Dunn-Fadden is the King-s Champion, notorious for his ability to fight any man and win. With steely eyes and a deeply-muscled physique, his powers of seduction are just as legendary. But Payton has a dark secret known only to his wife-and it-s a secret she may not keep-

A Woman Of Will
Known as White Satin, Dallis Caruth is infuriated by her forced marriage to Payton. The brute is far below her station-which makes her attraction to him utterly maddening. Now Dallis is determined to tame the fearsome laird-and win her freedom in the bargain...

A Dangerous Desire
As Payton and Dallis spar with one another, their desire ignites into fiery lovemaking. But danger is closer than either realizes. For the king has plans for the couple-plans that may unravel Payton-s secret-and cost them both their lives.

A drunken, out-of-control foray sets events in motion that change lives—lives ruled by extreme rage and love. A Knight and White Satin is a high-tension, adrenaline-pumping story with love scenes that leave one breathless.

Dallis Caruth knows what to expect from clan raids, her family has long adhered to the harsh beliefs. She hates being on the losing side. She knows she lacks the physical to stop Payton Dunn-Fadden’s assault, but she knows she has wits, cunning and determination that can help set her world back in order in time.

The cunning, conniving King James has a hold on the mighty Payton Dunn-Fadden and keeps him fighting to replenish to the royal coffers. Payton is “The King’s Champion”. He is adored and welcomed with open-arms by many, especially women. He hates it all. He want to return to is own keep with his honor guard to build a solid life away from court. However, he had not reckoned with the maneuvering of the woman he had forced to marry him nor had he reckoned with the love that could destroy him like no foe had ever done.

The selfish misuse of royal power, the undercurrent of secret machinations, the cruel Scotland winters, and the steadfast loyalty and love in A Knight and White Satin make it an exciting read that immerses the reader in some hair-raising fights and out-of-this-world lovemaking.

Jackie Ivie captures the attention with the first sentence and holds it until the last word in A Knight and White Satin.
