Fleeing for her life, Morgana Fitzgerald is caught and nearly raped by British soldier James Kelly and his band of rogues when she is rescued by Hugh O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone. Hugh was waiting for James just over the bridge where his uncle, the revered chief of Clan O'Neill, had been murdered by James 15 years ago. When the last redcoat is either dead or captured, James is escorted to the O'Neill stronghold to await trial, while Hugh sees to the feisty Lady Morgana. The Fitzgeralds and O'Neills have long been mortal enemies and Morgana prays he does not know her identity. Hugh has spent the last 15 years in Elizabeth's court as an honored hostage in an effort to quell the O'Neills. He does not care that she is a Fitzgerald, and one of the richest women in Britain. Morgana has been in hiding for the past four years, for should her name be known her life could be forfeit. Despite her attempts to flee, Hugh cannot bear to part with Morgana. He will risk life and limb to have her by his side and see that her name is cleared. LORD OF THE ISLE is a fast paced, adventurous tale that will bring a smile of pleasure (the ghost adds a touch of humor) to readers' lips.
