These books were previously released as individual titles in the Morna’s Legacy Series.

A Conall Christmas:

It’s Yuletide at Conall Castle

Adelle, a former socialite and serial dater, finds that her current age seems much older in the seventeenth century than it did in the twenty-first. She resigns herself to the fact that she will remain single for the rest of her days—at least until an unexpected visitor arrives at the castle.

Hew has spent the last twenty years all alone. When a winter storm causes him to seek shelter, he meets the first lass since his beloved Mae to make his heart flutter once again. Will he be able to release himself from his grief to allow another love into his life? 

A McMillan Christmas:

A Time For Second Chances

When the worst Christmas snowstorm of the century hits the Scottish Highlands, Harper knows she must seek shelter and is left with no choice but to take refuge in the one place she swore to never return—McMillan Castle—the home of the only man to ever break her heart. 

Christmas only reminds Kamden of all he’s lost. As he settles in for yet another holiday spent alone, he is stunned when his ex-girlfriend breaks into his home to escape the snow. Just as they begin to get reacquainted, Morna’s meddling magic sends them back in time, and both are forced to reconsider what they thought they knew about the other. 

Morna’s Magic & Mistletoe:

Kenna accompanies Cooper hundreds of years into the future for a week of Christmas celebrations with the old witch, Morna, but unexpected guests upend all of their holiday plans.

When Malcolm bumps into old friends, he meets the first woman in years to stir something long neglected inside his heart. Time together ignites their passion for one another, but the undeniable truth that they live worlds apart threatens their bond. Will their new love for one another be enough to convince him to leave the life he’s always known?

Her late father has angered the Clothmaker’s Guild and now Muriel and her brother have been excommunicated from the guild and also left with a debt to the baron that he insists Muriel repays.

She can either give the baron her deceased mother’s wedding ring – the only memory of her parents she has left – or she can live with him at his manor house and be his Personal Clothier to pay back the debt.

But sinister secrets from their childhood are also revealed, threatening their future. Can Fox conquer the dark mystery of the past and truly become the champion of his lady’s heart?

MY REVIEW of

The Saxon Bride

SYNOPSIS:

Amazon #1 Best Selling Historical Romance

The Norman Conquest Series

Rowena Godwinson, a Saxon princess, refuses to go willingly into a forced marriage to one of King William’s most favored knights but her struggle against enemy occupation fades away in the pleasurable arms of her Norman husband. Will he bring her people to their knees in his attempt to please his liege lord? Or can she win him over to the Saxon’s side even while one of her own plots to overthrow the bastard king?John of Normandy is a soldier made for battle, ingrained with chivalry and a deep sense of loyalty to his mentor and king. Serving his liege is reward enough. Neither a title nor a child bride will entice him to become an indolent lord. A chance encounter with an alluring beauty, however, releases all his pent up desires and unspoken needs. His young bride has become a passionate woman, tempting him beyond his endurance. Can he win her over before she learns the truth of her father’s death?

MY THOUGHTS:

I read “The Irish Warrior” first. It’s characterized as a long novella so I thought I’d try a new author to me by starting out with a shorter read. I loved it and so when the author offered widgets of “The Saxon Bride” and “The Gentle Knight” I immediately accepted her offer. 
All of these books are quite easily read as standalone stories. There are some of the same characters in these books.
This one is the story of John and Rowena.
John, a Norman warrior, is one of King William’s most loyal Knights. As a reward John is given a wife along with lands. Neither wants this marriage. A few years later, John is sent “home” to ensure the loyalty of the Saxons to King William.
John doesn’t even recognize the wife he took as a mere child years before.
There are factions that do not acknowledge William as ruler to the Saxons and trouble ensues.
The relationship between John and Rowena is hard pressed due to misunderstandings as well as John’s duties, which pull him away from hearth and home. Mistrust abounds between the two and so a slow burn begins.
There is romance, action, suspense, and skullduggery to be found within these pages.
I recommend the “Norman Conqueror” series to anyone who loves Medieval romance.
I would give this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.0 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy at times seems more like it is forced rather than consensual.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book by invitation from the author via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
