About the Book
Penelope Beatty made up her mind long ago she would live and die a Scottish warrior not a wife. But when nearly all her clan is killed and she is betrayed, she loathes doing the unthinkable, but must seek the help of an Englishman who owed her father’s his life.
Thomas Godfrey never married, but when a Scottish warrior lass shows up needing his aid, he finds her both annoying and irresistible. But the last thing he wants is to marry a woman who fights alongside him. If he was going to marry—which he isn’t—it would be to a soft, submissive woman. But when the Lady Brithwin meets the Scottish lass, she’s sure she’s found the perfect match for Thomas and nothing is going to stop her from seeing a summer wedding.

6’1” Englishman, Thomas Godfrey is taller than most of the men he commands. And when he is angry his eyes seem more black than their true dark-brown. His black wavy hair and short mustache and beard only add to his stormy look. But anyone who knows Thomas well knows that he will do anything he can to help a friend or someone in trouble. He gladly spent more years than not protecting his lord’s daughter, Brithwin, from the cruel lord himself. But now, with the old lord gone and Brithwin a married woman, Thomas has settled into life at Hawkwood as Master-of-Arms. The position keeps him busy, training knights and protecting Hawkwood and its people. Marriage sounded grand when he was younger, but the right lady never came around. Now as a thirty-five year old knight, Thomas has no desire to marry. He’s too old to change his ways, and too old to train a wife. What are the chances of finding a lady who is kind, gentle, and submissive?
Hailing from Scotland, Penelope Beatty was young when she decided to be the son her father never had. Her 5’10” height and looking the men in the eye has helped her feel equal to the warriors she’s fought with. She worked hard and learned how to shoot a bow and throw a knife. Her father even had a smaller sword made for her. Determined to make her father proud, Penelope practiced every chance she could and honed her skills until she was a better archer than any of her clan and could throw a knife better than most. She was her father’s delight, and they fought alongside one another. He often told her that with her fire-red curly hair and cinnamon-brown eyes, she was a spitting image of her mother. In her heart that was something she loved to hear, but as a warrior she wanted to forget she was a woman—because when she made the decision to be warrior and put on her breeches and tunic, she also made the decision never to marry. What man would want a twenty-five year old woman like her?
