Lachlan Sinclair cannot escape his accursed heritage in his Highlands homeland. Somewhat resigned to the fate that destroyed his ancestors, he is prepared to live his life without an heir, without a wife―without love. But when he meets the woman of his dreams in the flesh, the bewitching lass makes him want to throw away his cursed, restrained existence…and unleash the highlander within…

Lana Dounreay has only seen the Duke of Caithness in her dreams as a wild, rugged man, while in reality, his life has been cramped by curses and cravats. He may have forgone his kilt and lost his brogue, but Lana knows that the heart of a true Scotsman beats within his broad, muscular chest. But what plans does the mysterious, passionate Lachlan have in mind for her―and can she convince him that love is stronger than all else?


Lachlan threw back his covers and set his feet on the floor. He had to wait until he stopped shaking to stand, and even then his legs were limp. When he could, he stumbled to the wardrobe and found a pair of breeches and a simple shirt. After a fright like this, he needed to walk, to clear his mind, his soul, of the terror.

He didn’t wake Dougal. He never did. It was unfair to ask his cousin to bear the onus of his curse. Lachlan made his way through the deserted halls of Lochlannach Castle, down the grand staircase, and headed for the terrace that overlooked the crashing sea below. There was a moon tonight. The view of Dunnet Bay would calm his soul. And if it did not, there was always the option of stepping over the edge and into oblivion.

But as he emerged into the cool velvet night, it wasn’t oblivion that awaited him.

It was Lana Dounreay.

She sat on the seawall staring out at his coveted view, dressed in a diaphanous froth that had to be her nightdress. Her hair, turned silver by the night, hung down over her shoulders, glimmering in the moonlight.

His heart pattered, but for a very different reason.

She was so lovely, so serene, it made his breath catch.

He came to stand beside her without a word, tucking his hands in his pockets and staring at the sea. She glanced up at him, but without surprise, as though she had expected him. Together they gazed out at the dark ripples of the water, the shards of light dancing over the surface of the blackness.

A gentle breeze wafted by, bringing with it her scent. It made him dizzy.

Ah, how he wished . . .

He wished he were another man. A man not cursed. A man not haunted. A man not doomed to an early death.

A man who could have kissed her once.

How magnificent would that have been?

He must have sighed because she put her hand on his arm. It was warm. Soft. Alluring.

“Can you no’ sleep?” she asked in a soothing timbre.

He glanced at her and his gaze was snared. Her eyes were so wide, so blue, so deep. He wanted to drown in them. “No. I . . . had a visitor.”

Her brow rumpled. “A visitor?”

“Yes.” He turned back to the sea. Though he was loath to discuss this with anyone, lest they think him mad, he knew she would understand. “My father.”

“Ah. I see. Does he visit you often?”

Lachlan snorted a laugh but it was really not one. “Too often.”

Lana tipped her head to the side. “You . . . doona enjoy his visits?”

“I do not. They are . . . terrifying.”

Why this puzzled her was a mystery. Ghosts were terrifying.

“Can you describe the visit?”

Something in her tone caught his attention. He sat beside her on the wall, listening to the waves crash below. It took a while for him to collect his thoughts, but she waited. “He is always dour. Pained. There is wailing and—”


“Yes. But it is the chains that are the most perturbing.”

Lana blinked. “Chains?”

“Yes. He’s draped in them. Bound by them. It is his eternal torment. Because of the curse.”

“How odd. None of the ghosts I know wear chains.”

“They are probably not cursed.”

“Probably not.” Her lips quirked as she murmured, “As there are no such things as curses.”

His heart lurched. Would that that were true. He studied her face. Beautiful as it was, that hint of amusement pricked at him. “Do you find this funny?”

“Nae. No’ a bit of it.” She patted his hand. Her heat lingered. “’Tis just . . . odd.”

“What is odd?” Was he really asking? This whole conversation was odd.

“Odd that your ghost wears chains. Chains are verra . . . of this earth, after all.”

“He’s being punished. They are probably metaphorical.”

“Most likely.”

As they turned back to the vista before them, Lachlan reflected that this was, indeed, a surreal conversation to be having. But then, with someone like Lana, it made sense.

“Your mother doesna wear chains.”

His belly roiled at the thought. “I am . . . gratified to hear it.”

“She seems quite at peace.”

“Good to know.”

“Except that she worries about you.”

“Will you tell her I’m fine?”

“I canna.”

He gaped at her.

She lifted a shoulder. “I willna lie to her. Besides, she knows you’re no’ a happy man.”

A happy man? Was there such a thing?

“I am a cursed man.”


“I am.” He didn’t know why he smiled. His lips just wanted to move that way.

What was it about this woman, this sprite, that made the shadows waft away? Made all his dark ruminations evaporate like mists in the sunlight? Made him smile after the horrific encounter he’d just had?

Ah, but it didn’t seem so horrific. Not now. Not with her by his side.

Lana shot him a glance that warmed his heart. “She thought you looked verra fine tonight at dinner.”

“Ah. The kilt.”

“Aye.” Her lashes fluttered. “I thought you looked verra fine as well.”

Now, that stirred something in him. Something illicit and naughty. “Did you?”


“Was I manly?” He was teasing, perhaps, but when she flicked a glance at him, with that expression—one of hunger and admiration and . . . heat—all his playfulness withered, scorched by the blazing flare of his lust.

There was something about the cloak of night, the refreshing scent of the sea, the fragrance of her perfume, the way her hair riffled in the breeze. Or maybe it was his churning need to wipe the memory of his father’s visit from his mind, or the suddenly clawing desire to be a man he could never be . . . but Lachlan had to kiss her. Everything in him ached for it.

And so he did.

Though it was foolish and injudicious and wildly inappropriate of him, he did.

  1. Now that is a hard question to answer. I like all your books, no matter what the genre. All depends on the mood. This week it has been hot seals type stuff, but next week it could be historical. I read it all. So, what ever you write works for me.

  2. I have been following you for awhile and haven’t read a book yet, but you are next for me and I’m excited!!

  3. i love this series just ordered suzana and the scot. hav emany of sabrina’s books. loved everyone of them. i would recommend anyone to read her books/ love it all!!!!!

  4. I’m in love…with your books!! I wish reading books by my favorite authors all day was a paid job!! I’d be so rich if I were paid for every book I read!!

  5. I have not read any of your books as of yet, but I do plan on reading them, since I have checked out most of the book blurbs, and they sound so good!

  6. Anything! I’m an equal opportunity kind of gal. I like to switch things up all the time; I get bored otherwise. Right now I’m reading some sci-fi, tomorrow it might be historical romance, and next week it might be a cozy mystery.

    • I love that Cynthia! I like to bounce around too!

      Incidentally, I have a sci fi coming out in 2017 under the pen name Sam York! Think: Guardians of the Galaxy meet the Godfather on a Prison Moon where the aliens want to eat you. 😀

  7. Another giveaway I could not enter on rafflecopter!! Links don’t work when touched. Nothing. Tried on both my kindle and phone. Won’t bother with rafflecopter again.
    Sorry Sabrina

  8. haha You write ’em and I’ll read them. No matter what they are. I do have that soft spot for historicals though. But you already know all that. Just keep doing what you’re doing. 😉

  9. Haven’t read a Highlander book in awhile 😀 Must add these and did to all my amazon wishlists 🙂 Haven’t had a lot of time to read but sometimes I get burned out on my fav genre and Highlander/Historicals are the ones I read to pull me out of that funk 😉

  10. Sabrina,

    Honestly anything you want to write would be just perfectly fine with me because they are all awesome 🙂

  11. Thank you for this chance.
    I’m still pretty new but I look forward to getting to know you and your books better.

  12. I cannot wait to read this or any of your books! Do you ever have sales on your books? I am disabled and would love to read them but… being disabled at 43 really is difficult financial!

  13. I love your books. I r really like historians but I am trying your westerners too.I read wicked enchanment and was so blown away had not read that good of book in a long-time Kudos to you,Sabrina York.

  14. I am glad for the giveaway would enjoy anything you would see fit to award me.Lana and the Larid has been pre ordered since I fell rest heard of it weeks ago.I am not much for tiaras.unappreciated your giveaways.would love to win.

  15. Always Love the Seals! But I must say there’s something about a Highlander that warms the soul. You write it, I’ll read it. Thank You for your great books and your giveaways.

  16. I love the way you write and would love to see if you could do anything YA (contemporary) – full of angst 🙂

  17. From what I read of the blurb’s each will be a fine read. I haven’t read any of Ms. York’s yet but they are on wish list now. I love reading about highlanders and they’re highlands. Thx for this great giveaway.

  18. I would love to read this series!!! Love the premise, you truly are a talented writer just this bit above has me hooked…. if I had the money I would most certainly have all of your books!

  19. I love the Seals most but I’m really looking forward to the sci-fi one. Love those, there are never enough of them. On a side note, the links don’t work on my Kindle. I’ve already either ordered the books or added them to my wishlist but I’m afraid I won’t get credit since I couldn’t use the links.

  20. Honestly, time travel sometimes makes my head hurt, so it can’t be too complex. But, if written right and laid out well, I can deal.

    My tastes vary according to my mood, but I always enjoy a dash of humor along with some suspense or drama, no matter what the genre.

  21. I have loved every single one of the three books! I loved Hannah and her perfect lady behavior then how bold and brave Susanna was and her little daughter is so so precocious, and such a brat! Then we have poor Lana who hears and speaks with ghosts! I just love all of these books and will reread them often! I love to re read my favorite books and I was hooked once I read Hannah!Thanks for this awesome contest, but especially thank you for all the books you write that are so varied and so wonderful!

  22. I Would love to see more historical fiction! Actually I love cowboys too, and then there are some wonderful Seals, and just regular contemporary second chance would be nice also!

  23. Hoping against all hope, I’m going to get back into reading again. Too much life has been happening. Really want to get started on these books!

  24. I haven’t read any of your books, but I can’t wait to start your Untamed Highlanders series! They sound great!

  25. I haven’t read a story of a girl disguised as a young man story in some time. I think it really works as a historical, because of the restrictions around women during that period.

    • I kind of have a thing for that trope, Sue. I’ve used it in more than one book, but I justify it by having my heroines meet and commiserate on how much more fun it was as a boy Such as where Fia from Tarnished Honor has tea with Brittania from Call of the Wild Wind (Ever My Love Collection).
