'The Lion's Embrace' now available for pre-order!

My second historical romance, 'The Lion's Embrace', is now available for pre-order at 20% off from


Arrogant, selfish and dangerous, Lucas Saintclair is everything Harriet Montague dislikes in a man. He is also the best guide in the whole of the Barbary States, the only man who can rescue her archaeologist father from the gang of Tuareg fighters that has kidnapped him. As Harriet embarks on a perilous journey across Algeria with Saintclair and Archibald Drake, her father’s most trusted friend, she discovers a bewitching but brutal land where nothing is what it seems. Who are these men intent on stealing her father’s ransom? What was her father hoping to find in Tuareg queen Tin Hinan’s tomb? Is Lucas Saintclair really as callous as he claims—or is he a man haunted by a past he cannot forgive? Dangerous passions engulf Harriet’s heart in the heat of the Sahara. Secrets of lost treasures, rebel fighters, and a sinister criminal brotherhood threaten her life and the life of the man she loves.

Does forever lie in the lion’s embrace?

How I loved writing that story! I hope you will love reading it too.


  1. Hi Marie,
    Have to say that I have never pre-ordered a book before, but "The Lion's Embrace" has all the elements that I love to read: Archaeology, Sahara Desert, Mystery, and Romance! Don't want to forget so will pre-order! Can't wait to read it.
