The White Witch
As Lady Siena stands on a platform waiting to die, she realizes that she has been doomed from the day she was born. She doesn’t believe she is worth anything, much less love. Her own people believe she is cursed. Siena’s only true blessing is the gift of sight.
The Devil’s Laird
Roderick, Warlord of Kirkurd, is driven by revenge and guilt. When his holding was attacked, his wife ravished and slain, and his son missing, the goodness within Roderick died. He is now known as the Devil’s Laird.
The Meeting . . .
Roderick saves Siena from the hangman’s noose and takes her back to his castle. Siena sees a lonely, haunted man who needs her. But no matter how hard she tries, she cannot completely break down the barrier Roderick has constructed around his heart, nor shake the curse of bad luck that his people believe she carries. Only the Holy Grail can prove if she is good or evil.
When Siena sacrifices herself to free Roderick’s son, Roderick realizes that he has lost his chance to love again. Now he will move heaven and earth to find her before it is too late.
Beautifully Written, Wonderfully Told
Brenda Jernigan’s “ The Devil's Laird “ is a compelling story that grabs your attention from the start. This is a new author to me and I’ll definitely be reading more of her work.
I loved the characters! Laird Roderick Scott is a hero that quickens your heart. He swoops in and saves the heroine from the hangman’s noose at the very last minute. He’s so kind and caring to Siena. Confused by his feelings for her, thinking he’d lost all ability to love after the ravage and murder of his wife by Siena’s brother whom she killed and his hope of finding his missing son, Roderick finds himself falling in love with Siena. Siena was brutally abused by her brother and she killed him in self defense.
This is story is magical not only in Siena’s abilities but in the authors magical story telling. With a compelling plot, fascinating characters, beautiful dialogue and great world building she takes you on a journey to the past holding you spellbound and mystified. This is a story of unconditional, selfless love and a passion that knows no bounds.
Thank you so much Ms. Jernigan for simply exquisite tale of love and all its magic.
"Outstanding! Jernigan delights with her special brand of romance and adventure, this time adding the danger and excitement of medieval Scotland, along with just enough magic to thrill fans of the genre. The Devil's Laird is a keeper."
