In Ireland to film a documentary for a big time network in the States, reporter Madalyn FitzGerald of Irish decent, becomes enthralled in the history of Fore Abbey. The small Chapel that sits on the hill opposite the site of the Benedictine Priory, calls to her to the point that she thinks she’s going crazy.
In her dreams she feels his touch and when she’s close to the Chapel, she hears his voice. She hears the clatter of hooves off in the distance, but when she looks there’s nothing there. Her nose twitches with unfamiliar scents.
The more obsessed she becomes with the Chapel, the stronger she feels like she’s being watched.
Raoul Keir is a traitor to the Crown and has spent long cold months fighting against what he believes in. With soldiers on his tail, sent by Henry VIII to capture him, he takes refuge in Fore Abbey with the Benedictine monks—hiding in plain sight—becoming one of them.
Three months later, in the middle of a stormy night, something sends him to the small Chapel...and that’s where he finds a young woman lying in the entrance. She's soaked to the skin in clothing he's never seen before.
As he cradles her in his arms, her eyelids flutter open, taking his breath at the dazzling green eyes staring back at him. He whispers, "Who are you?" She looks around the dark chapel, almost fearful, as lightening and thunder clatters above, lighting the night sky. Her whispered, "Madalyn FitzGerald," is said with confusion clouding her gaze.
The year is 1535.
When my childhood friend, Cora, dared me to write a sexy novel about a martial arts fighter, I agreed, albeit under the influence of alcohol. It was something for me—something different and exciting.
It was supposed to be research, pure and simple. But then I met him—a six-foot-six mountain of a man with no name. The way his muscles flexed and rippled when he trained made my belly quiver. The way his dark hair flopped over his forehead made me want to brush it back from his strong face. His nose had been broken, but it made no difference, he was still a handsome man. He had eyes dark as the night that would land on me the minute I entered his gym…Every…Time.
He was their star fighter, the one that brought in the big money. At first I feared him because of his size and the way he would look at me. But then I discovered that I was his biggest distraction, and no matter what my head told me, my heart told me to fight for the man who didn’t know how to live outside of the cage.
