The Blac k Falcon's Christmas
Her Magic Touch
A Desperate Magic... On Beltane eve, Mary Fallon Delaney steals to a castle ruin where her mother’s allegedly magical brooch has been hidden all these years, waiting for the right moment to summon “Ciaran of the Mist,” a mythical Celtic warrior promised to appear at the hour of Ireland's greatest need. A legend to be sure, but Fallon is willing to try anything to save Ireland from the marauding English. When she waits for the moonlight to work its magic with the brooch, a naked stranger stumbles out of the mist and she stares in disbelief.
A mysterious stranger... As much as he insists he is no Celtic warrior from the fairy realm, this mad Irish beauty insists on calling him Ciaran. He knows nothing of his life before he stumbled out of the mist, his head gashed, and he has no intention of getting swept up in the clash between the Irish and the English. However, when Ciaran encounters the villainous Captain Lionel Redmayne, who is fascinated by Fallon, Ciaran finds himself caught up in Fallon's world of rebellion, wishing he could be the hero she longs for.
A sacrifice foretold... But whatever his identity, Ciaran knows how the story will end. He will walk into the mist alone— unless the passion he finds in Fallon's arms is strong enough to ransom him from the secrets locked in his past. Yet does Fallon have the courage to love an all too flawed mortal when she’s spent a lifetime in love with a dream?
A fairy-kissed Irish healer... Rhiannon Fitzgerald has no memories of her heritage, only her father's claim that fairies bestowed her gift for healing. Traveling the Irish countryside alone, she cares for any wounded creature in her path. When she
stumbles across a half-dead English officer amid the standing stones of Ballyaroon, she senses the turmoil in him—and the danger.
An English rogue beyond hope... Shot in the standing stones above the ruins, Captain Lionel Redmayne expects to wake in hell for his numerous sins. But when he regains consciousness in a gypsy caravan under the care of a winsome Irish woman and her motley pack of animals he is impressed with the devil’s resourcefulness. Dumping the meticulous Captain into such chaos is far more torturous than flames.
A chance at redemption... Rhiannon knows there is no place for a free-spirited gypsy in Redmayne’s rigid military world. Redmayne worries that Rhiannon will pay the ultimate price for his sins when his enemies stalk her for daring to help him. And though he wants nothing more than to allow this Irish beauty to lead him from the dark and twisted maze of secrets that imprison his heart, he fears that the only way to save her is to let her go. Or is it possible that a little chaos is exactly what Lionel Redmayne needs to save him from a cunning foe who stalks him still?

Not only is Sir Aidan Kane not the tender-hearted widower she thought, he is a scoundrel rumored to have murdered the first Lady Kane.
A dedicated bachelor... Aidan Kane loves his daughter, Cassandra, and would do almost anything for her—except give up his rakish ways to become leg-shackled to the overly prim Miss Linton. But his past comes to haunt him when Cass longs for a London Season. He knows she’ll be ostracized for her parents' sins. When he discovers that the very proper Norah Linton is the granddaughter of a famous general, he realizes that her honorable lineage could save Cass from humiliation at the hands of the haute ton. But is that worth putting his head through the matrimonial noose?
A devil’s bargain... They each agree to the marriage—eyes wide open, both knowing it’s not for love. And just as they settle into their fragile world, the rumors surrounding the mysterious death of Aidan’s first wife rear up again. As unknown enemies seek revenge, striking at the heart of everything Aidan holds dear, he and Norah must learn the truth of what really happened before all is lost.
