Three beautiful agents for the crown, three prime suspects, and one sinister plot to destroy a fledgling kingdom... Meet the Queen's Angels!When Robert the Bruce's queen formed the Angels, an elite group of spies masquerading as her ladies-in-waiting, she probably didn't imagine they'd be called on to save her life. But that's what happens when Queen Elizabeth is entertaining the Fraser delegation.Luckily, her lady Courtney is deadly with a bow, and recognizes the assassin. Court's history with the band of thieves and murderers who raised her means she has a very different skill set than most women in the queen's retinue, and she's not afraid to employ it. But she is used to working alone, and the idea of being saddled with an unwanted partner--particularly when that man is gorgeous, dangerous, and a prime suspect--is galling.Ross Fraser, the queen's longtime bodyguard, can't believe one of his kinsmen could be involved in this treacherous plot. He'll do everything in his power to prove his clan is innocent of treason, even if it means partnering with a testy and deadly thief-turned-spy... One who holds his heart after that single night they spent together years ago.Ross must choose between his loyalty to his laird and his loyalty to his heart, as Court's reuniting with her "family" makes her question everything she thought she understood. When metal hits meat, can this unlikely duo learn to trust each other, or will the plot to bring down the Scottish monarchy succeed? Warning: Contains a [email protected] heroine, an adorable sheepdog with more hair than sense, and some super-steamy scenes.

If you love Maya Banks, Monica McCarty, and Sabrina Jeffries, don’t miss Jennifer Haymore’s steamy Highland Knights novels! The series begins with the tale of two estranged lovers who are reunited on one of history’s most notorious battlefields. Lady Claire Campbell last saw her husband four years ago. They had a terrible fight, and Claire lashed out in ways she now regrets. Ever since, the memory of his rugged face and piercing blue eyes has never been far from her mind. When Claire receives word that he’s on the Continent, fighting on behalf of the British Crown, she knows she must go to Waterloo to find him—the horrors of the battlefield be damned—and apologize before it’s too late, or she will never forgive herself. A fierce warrior and natural-born leader, Robert Campbell doesn’t shrink from danger. Bayonets and cannon shot scarcely raise his pulse. Yet his courage fails him after one glimpse of his beautiful English wife. Even the savage blow to the head he has received is nothing compared to the gouge she made in his soul. As Claire nurses him back to health, Rob finds he’s never wanted her more. But he cannot risk another heartbreak—no matter how tempting it is to give in to desire. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Nineteenth-century highland Madagascar was a place inhabited by the dead as much as the living. Ghosts, ancestors and the possessed were important historical actors alongside local kings and queens, soldiers, traders and missionaries. This book considers the challenges that such actors pose for historical accounts of the past and for thinking about questions of presence and representation. How were the dead made present, and how were they recognized or not? In attending to these multifarious encounters of the nineteenth century, how might we reflect on the ways in which our own history-writing makes the dead present? To tackle these questions, Zoë Crossland tells an anthropological history of highland Madagascar from a perspective rooted in archaeology and Peircean semiotics, as well as in landscape study, oral history and textual sources.
... which have become a touchstone in recent moves to problematize the progressivist delineations of many historical accounts.29 Inspired by Klee's Angelus Novus, Benjamin describes the angel of history staring back on the wreckage of ...
