Marjorie Jones has been writing since she formed her first coherent sentence. She fell in love with characters like Peter, Susan, Edmond and Lucy of The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis (she planned to marry Prince Caspian before she met her real hero) and never looked back.

Discovering romance novels at the tender age of 16, she penned her first complete novel at the age of 19. Her works encompass historical, contemporary and paranormal romance.

Married to Keith for nearly 17 years, she is the mother of three children. Her eldest son currently serves in the United States Navy, while her two daughters attend Junior High and High School.

An ancestral sword has been stolen…

The Jewel

Following the ensuing battle with the Earl of Ravenstone’s forces, Meghan Douglas tends to the wounds of her father’s men, the Laird of Clan Douglas. Among the fallen, she finds a sorely wounded English knight. Though he is an enemy, Meghan takes pity on the handsome, burly stranger, and has him taken to a chamber. There, once he has been securely bound to her father’s bed, she attempts to save his life, attending to the most intimate details of his care.

The Sword

When Devlin Barnett regains consciousness at last, it is only to find himself tied to a bed, being cared for by a beautiful young woman. Not just any young woman, however, but the daughter of his treacherous foster brother, the Laird of the keep, for whom he is now being held as ransom. To make matters worse, he finds his traitorous, vulnerable body responding to Meghan’s tender ministrations in a most alarming, and conspicuous, manner.

Meghan cannot deny the powerful attraction she feels for the captive in her bed … the captive who so stubbornly refuses to give up his name. She knows only that he is one of the Earl of Ravenstone’s knights.

Devlin finally manages to escape, both his imprisonment and the danger to his heart. He has not gone far, however, when he realizes he is being followed. His emotions are in peril once again, for the lovely Meghan insists he take her to Ravenstone’s castle that she might plead for her father’s release.
