A Dark Christmas Knight
She healed his wounds from an assassin’s arrow. Can she also heal his heart?
(Note: This book was previously titled His Christmas Angel in the Yuletide Kisses anthology)
Laird Dougal de Giffard knows that no woman will have him. As the son of the infamous Wizard of Yester, rumors of black magic and necromancy have dogged his steps since he was a child. In a time when superstitions have deep roots, even strong men avoid him.
Ambushed and left for dead just days before Christmas, he’s rescued by the feisty daughter of his neighbor. Slaine de Morham shows no fear of him, even when she learns his name. As enticing as she is, Dougal has no intention of subjecting her to a life of censure. That is, until the man chosen to be her husband arrives. A man with three very young, very dead wives. Seeing the terror in Slaine's eyes affects Dougal on an unexpected level, and he does something he never intended to do - take a wife.
With new enemies and an assassin drawing near, Dougal will do everything in his power to protect Slaine. Because now that she's his, he intends to keep her, even if he must do the one thing he swore he never would... follow in his father’s footsteps.
