New York Times bestselling author Bertrice Small writes exciting love stories that introduce readers to magnificent historic locales and memorable characters. In her newest book, Besieged, she continues her thrilling 17th century saga, Skye's Legacy, with the moving tale of Jasmine's younger daughter, a courageous beauty determined to follow her heart. . ..

Besieged

Nearly a spinster at twenty, Fortune Lindley is leaving Scotland to return to her birthplace at Maguire's Ford, a vast Ulster estate that she will inherit only if she marries an Irish Protestant. To that end, Fortune has agreed to consider a match with the Protestant aristocrat William Devers, a man suited to her wealth and status.

Besieged

But it is the rebellious and disinherited Catholic elder brother, Kiernan Devers, who steals her heart, driving William to a black and murderous fury. While Fortune and Kiernan's forbidden ecstasy explodes, jealousy and intolerance lead to an unthinkable tragedy--and a destiny that will test Fortune's will to survive in a struggle to claim a land, a legacy, and the only love she'll have. . .

Bertrice Small is the author of over twenty-four novels of historical romance. She is a New York Times bestseller, and the recipient of numerous awards. In keeping with her profession, Bertrice Small lives in the oldest English-speaking town in the state of New York, which was founded in 1640. Her light-filled studio is filled with the paintings of her favorite cover artist, Elaine Duillo; a large library; but no computer as she works on an IBM Quietwriter 7, and her long-time assistant, Judy Walker, types the final draft. Because she believes in happy endings, Bertrice Small has been married to the same man, her hero, George, for thirty-six years. They have a son, Thomas, a lovely daughter-in-law, Megan, and two adorable grandchildren, Chandler David and Cora Alexandra. Long-time readers will be happy to know that Nicki the Cockatiel flourishes, along with his cat housemates, Pookie, the long-haired griege and white, and Honeybun, the petite orange with the cream-colored paws.
