  While England and Scotland pause their war under a temporary truce agreement, Kenneth Sutherland is using this time to prove himself worthy of becoming a member of Bruce’s infamous phantom warriors, the Highland Guards. Mary of Mar was so disillusioned by her first husband that she has no desire to ever look for love or be married again and works really hard to appear unattractive. However, Kenneth sees beneath the drab and is captivated. I loved this story, with its messy romance, convoluted politics and taut, suspenseful action. Kenneth is extremely handsome and arrogant about his charm while Mary wants no part of him or any man. Even though she looks like a nun, Mary is smart and spirited, creating a challenge for the […]

  Welcome to The Book Nympho, Jess! We’re looking forward to learning more about you and your books, especially the Mistress Matchmaker series. Let’s begin by exploring more about you.

Jonetta: Did you always know you wanted to be a writer? Many authors talk about having these stories that […]
