Summary:

Introduction to the set

With the Queen due for her annual visit to Balmoral Castle, Constable Aidan Williamson has been transformed overnight into an undercover detective for Police Scotland. He’s managed to emerge from his first case (Where There’s Smoke) with only a bullet wound and a few other scars no one can see. He’s also become deeply attracted to Kenneth Logan, an enigmatic hermit who chooses a stone tent and hard floor over a comfy flat with a soft bed. His second case (Deep Fury) takes him once more to a property owned by Her Majesty—but this time another monarch takes top billing. A very old secret hidden by Queen Victoria has become a cause for murder. At her famous Widow’s House on a lake in the Highlands…and in his own private life with a hot Scot named Logan…there’s a smoldering deep fury at work, and Aidan’s determined to get to the bottom of it. In Spilled Passion, a hidden crime has been uncovered in the same place the royal party is set to visit soon. Aidan, rookie dick, is struggling to confront his demons—and his angels too. Who’s the killer? A pillar of the local church…a couple of horny adolescents…a protective kinsman of the dead man’s wife…or the sweet widow herself? This time around, the edges are blurred more than ever in a mystery and a buried secret that spill all the way into serious romance.

Summary: Past crimes, present danger With a new Police Scotland job, a new-ancient home, a loving pet, and a fresh outlook, Rory and Alex are almost ready for their marriage—as soon as bonnie Scotland can figure out how to do it. Working on the restoration of an old Jacobite tower house, they find evidence of a serious crime. But with no handy forensics lab on the wind-swept heathland, they don’t know whether it happened recently, or a hundred years ago. For his part, Alex’s new duties also mean a new identity, as he follows the trail of drugs and dirty cops. Former playboy Rory is anything but a detective. But with Alex tied up in his current job, he finds himself chasing down clues to a mystery lurking in Brash Tower itself.  Their independent investigations uncover some startling secrets—and a source of immediate peril—as Brash Tower becomes once again a fortress against brutal enemies. Will Rory and Alex ever tie that infernal knot—or will the high moor become once again a desolate reminder of what might have been?

Summary: A twist of fate changed both their destinies. The wyrbears, once a long-lived species, were being lost to the forest in their prime. A people borne of a curse, their abilities not a gift but something wrongly taken, they nonetheless live in harmony with their animal spirits. But over time the curse they lived under changed, mutated, and now what once was a refuge from the world when they became too weary is culling mathan in their prime. Ewen mhic Friscalach, the leader of his peoples, lost his father too early and is now a widower with four children. The vow he made as a youth to break the curse afflicting wyrbears has been buried by grief and responsibility. Roi mhic Alric, a priest of Cerridwen and seer, watched his fellow priests slaughtered and his temple desecrated. The only thing that kept him going the last three horror-filled years was the vision Cerridwen had granted him of his emancipation. If freedom came at the cost of his life, well, he was more than ready for the Otherworld. A fated meeting upon a bloody field of battle. A wrong done long ago. Their choices could save a people… or send them into extinction. Either way, their love will be legend.
