Want to win one of five copies of Margaret Mallory's KNIGHT OF DESIRE? Read on!

by Margaret Mallory


His surcoat still bloody from battle, William FitzAlan comes to claim the strategic borderlands granted to him by the king. One last prize awaits him at the castle gates: the lovely Lady Catherine Rayburn.


Catherine risked everything to spy for the crown. Her reward? Her lands are declared forfeit and she is given this choice: marry FitzAlan or be taken to the Tower. Catherine agrees to give her handsome new husband her body, but she’s keeping secrets and dares not give him her heart. As passion ignites and danger closes in, Catherine and William must learn to trust in each other to save their marriage, their land, and their very lives.

Want to hear my thoughts? Take a look at my review of KNIGHT OF DESIRE.

I like most romances but for the past 6 months I would say I am really loving paranormal romances - I just discovered them thanks to the True Blood series on HBO.
