Destined to be a Gypsy?
Rosselyn Buchanan grew up in the household at Stewart Glen, two years older than her best friend and mistress, Davina Stewart. The girls were more like sisters and Rosselyn has been there for Davina as a playmate and emotional support. And so watching her dear friend be subjected to the abusive relationship of Davina’s arranged marriage was almost more than she could stand. It’s no wonder Rosselyn plays the matchmaker when Broderick MacDougal comes along. Little did Rosselyn know she would end up being swept of her feet by the charming Spanish Gypsy, Nicabar Mendoza.
Most Popular Quote from Rosselyn Buchanan
“My sweet friend, falling in love is allowing yourself to be vulnerable enough to open your heart. Love is taking risks. If you want the love you have been dreaming of for so long, you must be willing to get hurt.”

Charming Spanish Gypsy
Nicabar has been with the Gypsies most of his life, having joined them when he was a wandering pickpocket in Barcelona. He is a passionate man who is devoted to his band of Gypsies, but has a bit of a wild streak and has never been tied down to any one person. However…Rosselyn – the beautiful Scot lady who caught his eye – is woman whose passion matches his own. She just might be the one to win his wild heart.
Most Popular Quote from Nicabar Mendoza
“The giant dukker is a strange man of dark secrets, not someone you should seek.” With a raised eyebrow, the corner of his mouth turned up in a devilish smile. “But my warnings may not deter a woman such as you, with fire in her eyes and passion in her heart.” He closed the distance. “Pursuing a mysterious stranger may be exactly what you seek.”

Facts About Rosselyn & Nicabar NOT in the Books
Toward the beginning of Midnight Conquest, the Gypsies come to the little village of Stewart Glen and Rosselyn explores the camp and all its festivities with her mistress, Davina. Though hinted at when Davina is older, it’s never shown that during the next few weeks the Gypsies are visiting, Rosselyn and Davina go down several times to the camp to sit with Amice and share tea or break bread together. Even back then, Rosselyn dreamt of being a Gypsy and it was the adventures Amice shared – about the cities to which they traveled across Europe and the people they met – that fueled Rosselyn’s desire to be one of them. Though Rosselyn had thought about running away with them, in the end couldn’t bare to leave knowing she might never see Davina again.
Nicabar was ten years old, a hungry orphan on the streets of Barcelona, when he picked someone’s pocket for the first time. Unfortunately, he was discovered…but not yet caught. The young boy ran for his life, slipping through the vendor carts and passersby in the marketplace. When Nicabar rounded the corner and ducked into an alley, he was sure to escape…but collided with Amice and Monique half-way down the alley. Nicabar felt horrible that he’d knocked down an older woman and, while trying to help her up, the man he’d robbed caught up with him. Monique used her charms to persuade the gentleman into believing the young boy was with them. Amice scolded their new companion while Monique made a promise to meet the man later and to forget about the small pittance of money the boy pilfered. Lucky for Nicabar, the Gypsies were spending their last night in Barcelona They took Nicabar back to their camp where he gorged on a hot meal and their pleasant company. Amice said he could work off the meal if he stayed with them…and could find a home with the Gypsies if he promised to be a hard worker. He would have starved and eventually been hung for stealing if he had not run into Amice and Monique. Nicabar has been with the Gypsies every since.
Broderick MacDougal follows the familiar yearning of his soul to a fierce warrior who is as seductive as a siren at sea - and she is just as deadly. The world of the supernatural opens to Broderick as he not only finds himself in the midst of an ancient war of shapeshifters, but the devious Cordelia Lynn Harley has re-entered his life and has a few of her own surprises.
Born into a hated race of Norse wolf shifters, Celina Hunter knows all too well the dangers of trusting anyone other than her two brothers. And yet the survival of her family hinges on trusting the strangely familiar vampire, a natural enemy of her kind…yet her tribe’s Shaman advisers confirm he is her soul mate. Enemy or not, Celina slips into the spell of Broderick's promises of eternal love, gambling with all she holds dear.
Broderick and Celina are bound by a curse, but having come this far through the centuries, Broderick is not about to risk his chance at having his soul mate for eternity. The price, however, may be more than Celina is willing to pay as there is more at stake than just her immortal soul. Click to Tweet
