The Mercenary's Bride

Book 1, The Brides of Inverfyre

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Robbed of his possessions, wounded and left for dead, Quentin de Montgomerie has lost everything except his love for Mhairi, the daughter of the Hawk of Inverfyre—and he knows who is to blame for his fate. He vows to return to Inverfyre and take his vengeance from the Hawk, but arrives to discover that the fierce maiden in possession of his heart has blossomed into a beauty, and that her kiss has the power to give him hope for the future again. Can Quentin prove himself to the Hawk and win Mhairi—or will she spurn him for being less than once he was?
The Mercenary's Bride is a Christmas Scottish medieval romance novella which was originally published in the Christmas 2017 anthology The Nutcracker Reimagined.

Customer Reviews

Beautifully written standalone novella

Former Captain of the Guard Quentin was summarily dismissed from his post and driven from the gates of Inverfyre when he defied the Hawk's order to stop teaching his daughter Mhairi combat. It is now several years later and Quentin has had some difficult experiences, having been robbed, beaten and left for dead. As damaged as he now believes himself to be, still he returns to Inverfyre and Mhairi, the woman he loves, to keep a long ago promise, maybe even to prove himself worthy of her love. When the rival MacLarens threaten Inverfyre, Quentin does what he does best and devises a strategy to save The Hawk, Mhairi, and all of Inverfyre. Though the characters here will be familiar to readers of Ms. Delacroix's Rogues of Ravensmuir series, this lovely, beautifully written novella is a standalone with its own HEA. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
