Proud Highlander Ciaran MacLeod is falling in love…with the plain lass he wed for convenience. But when the honor of his clan is at stake, will he put her aside for another?


Book Summary:

From New York Times Bestselling author Cynthia Wright comes a thrilling new romance of 16th century Scotland!
Darkly handsome Ciaran MacLeod revels in his life as a Highland warrior. He spends his days training with his comrades at Duntulm Castle on the far cliffs of the Isle of Skye, and by night he takes his pick of smitten lasses.
However, Ciaran harbors a family secret that makes him deeply suspicious of love. He’s grateful he doesn’t have to worry about taking a wife, for the castle is efficiently run by Violette, a plain young Frenchwoman who hides under a dowdy gable hood and reveals nothing of her own past.
Violette Pasquiére fled to Scotland to escape a vengeful stepfather. On the remote Isle of Skye, she feels safe, tending to the strong Clan MacLeod men who would be lost without her care. The potent attraction Violette feels for Ciaran MacLeod is just one more secret she keeps.
But a threat to Duntulm Castle changes everything, and Ciaran’s elders pressure him to make a marriage alliance that will benefit the clan. Rebelling against their efforts to control him, Ciaran impulsively proposes to Violette instead, setting in motion a passionate series of events that shake not only their future, but challenge their carefully guarded hearts…

“Cynthia Wright magically intertwines passion and history!” ~ RT Book Reviews


Sent to Little Bighorn by President Grant to keep an eye on hot-headed General Custer, Fox Matthews will have to live with a decision that left him alive after the rest of Custer’s men were killed by Sioux warriors. Struggling with survivor’s guilt, Fox takes refuge in a place where he’s a stranger – the raucous gold town of Deadwood, located deep in the Black Hills, sacred land to the same Sioux Indians who decimated Custer’s troops.


Madeleine Avery, raised to be a lady in Philadelphia, is appalled when she arrives in unrefined Deadwood with her family. Slowly she learns to bend, coaxed out of her shell by a powerful attraction to Fox and a journey into the world of the Sioux Indians.

IN A RENEGADE’S EMBRACE is an unforgettable tale of cultures colliding and the passionate, tender journey of Fox and Maddie as they discover the secrets of their own hearts.


1. BRIGHTER THAN GOLD (Jack & Katie)
3. THE DUKE & THE COWGIRL (Geoff & Shelby)

Author’s Note:

Maddie’s grandmother, Susan Hampshire O’Hara, is the daughter of Lion & Meagan from TOUCH THE SUN. She also appears in HER DANGEROUS VISCOUNT as a young woman.
IN A RENEGADE’S EMBRACE was originally published by Ballantine Books as FIREBLOSSOM.

“Looking for a hero to sweep you off your feet? Look no further…” ~ Kathe Robin, ROMANTIC TIMES MAGAZINE


“Wright weaves history and fiction together skillfully. Maddie is a proper lady who must learn to unbend. Fox is the presidential adviser who’s undercover and left with survivor’s guilt after he survives the Battle of Little Bighorn. Like ‘Dances With Wolves,’ IN A RENEGADE’S EMBRACE paints the Sioux as an idyllic people faced with the end of life as they know it. Wright creates sympathetic Indian characters and populates Deadwood with an array of real-life eccentrics. IN A RENEGADE’S EMBRACE again shows why Wright is one of the country’s most popular romance novelists.” ~ THE SIOUX FALLS ARGUS LEADER
