Rescued by the Scot by Laura A. Barnes (VBB, excerpt, and GIVEAWAY) GFT

Rescued for vengeance

Set out to finalize a deal for her brother’s return, Skye MacKinnon instead captures the double agent working alongside her enemy. When she holds her prisoner hostage at her castle, he draws her into an attraction that spirals out of control. After she fights off his spell, she deceives him for her own agenda. As she betrays his trust, she is caught in the web of the evil villain who is terrorizing England. When her prisoner rescues her from the torture, she becomes afraid of her own shadow. As Skye recognizes her love for him, can she overcome her fears, or will she be forever destroyed by the violence of her mission?

Rescued for desire

Chained and left waiting for his own demise, Zane Maxwell is soon rescued by a Scottish goddess. He is enraptured by her charms and drawn under her spell. Her touch and look sink into his soul a connection he cannot resist. While he lures her into his confidence and seduces her into his bed, her only plans are betrayal. When she is captured, he realizes she was only protecting his life. Now he must rescue her and destroy the man who hurt her. Can Zane convince her of his love, or did he miss his chance of a life filled with the woman of his dreams?


Skye ascended the stairs quickly, slipping inside the first room she came upon. The room was an artist’s studio, filled with canvases and paints scattered everywhere. Skye wandered around the room, forgetting the reason she was here as she gazed at the drawings spread around her. They were amazing, such detail made vivid by Zane. After seeing his other two pieces, she understood the passion of his work. A huge canvas rested in the corner, covered with a tarp baring traces of paint. Skye slid the cover aside and saw a painting full of vibrant color, wanting to see the whole picture, she dragged off the tarp. A picture of beauty stood before her, she admired the attention to the detail. Every stroke of the brush captured the love of the subject. The colors only made the painting bolder.

Skye gazed upon herself. Zane captured his love for her in every detail from his heart. He painted her wearing a long green ball gown, covered in diamonds. She was elegant. It was the look in her eyes that drew her attention. They were the look of love and desire, an invitation to her soul. A look only meant for him. He painted her hair unbound, falling around her in waves. Long curls winding themselves down her body, settling near her breasts. There were emeralds and diamonds draped from her neck and hanging from her ears. Skye couldn’t believe it was her in the picture, but he made her believe in him. In them.
