Our SPOTLIGHT is on Author Nicole North and LAIRD OF DARKNESS..*Contest*


Half-Fae Laird Duncan MacDougall is cursed. His nights are haunted by Otherworld creatures sent to kill him. The only way to stop them is to possess the magic bow currently in the hands of his enemy half-brother, Kinnon MacClaren. In desperation, Duncan plans to take MacClaren's bride-to-be hostage and exchange her for the bow.

Lady Alana Forbes has never met her intended, but she hopes he is handsome-and a good lover, for Alana is no innocent virgin. On her way to Castle Claren, Alana and her escorts are intercepted, and she is kidnapped by a man with extraordinary abilities-and every attribute she longs for in a mate.

Duncan didn't expect the woman he thought of as a mere pawn would be so beautiful, and so arousing. Alana is drawn to him as well-but Duncan still needs the bow, and Alana is betrothed to another. How far will Alana go to save the life of the man she's come to love?

I just got a Kindle and the first story I bought was Laird of Darkness. I will fess up and say that Nicole has been my teacher through several online classes so I already knew how awesome she is. I have not been disappointed in reading this story - am on Chapter six and, well, my one word description is that it makes me tingly all over just reading about these great characters. :)

Hi Nicole,

I love paranormal romances, and is there anything sexier than a highlander?! Just got thru reading the chapter one excerpt on your website, and what an introduction, loved it.

Paisley, huge thanks!! I consider it a major honor that you bought my book first on your new Kindle! I love your description of the book making you tingly! ;) Woohoo! Hope you continue to enjoy it. Hugs!! I'm working on the sequel, by the way. That's why I left sort of a cliffhanger at the end.

Can I say how much I love that the heroine isn't a virgin? I think it makes her so much more interesting and believable a character. I think Laird of Darkness sounds amazing!
