Today I welcome my good friend Lane McFarland with the latest of her wonderful Scotland-based novels, A KING'S ENEMIES, Book Two in the Turnberry Legacy Series. You won't be able to resist enigmatic and intriguing Drake or brave and determined Katherine. Here's Katherine's fascinated first glimpse of Drake.
Leaning back in his chair, he drank from a tankard and observed the celebration. At first glance, he appeared somewhat detached, but then he perused the loathsome players of the court. Humph. He was anything but uninterested. He focused on the evil doers, absorbing everything, yet he showed little to no reaction upon his stony face.
Unlike the others, he wore his dark, curly hair cropped short. Black whiskers covered his cheeks and chin. He was a bit too far away to make out the color of his eyes. Would they be warm brown or piercing blue? With thoughts of gazing into those eyes, a strange ripple ran through her and intensified as she perused his wide chest and broad shoulders.
Their eyes locked. Captivated, she couldn’t look away. A slight smile played on his full mouth. Good heavens. He’d caught her admiring him, an Englishman, no less.

Tormented by King Edward’s brutality against Scottish sympathizers, Drake Fletcher vows revenge, but only a madman single-handedly attacks the Crown. Instead, he enters the royal court as a spy to aid Robert the Bruce’s rise to power and place a formidable leader on Scotland’s throne.
Scottish lass Katherine Mackenzie Armstrong targets three of King Edward’s officers who brutally raped and murdered her mother. Disguised as one of Queen Margaret’s attendants, she sets a course to destroy the men.
The acts of treason both Drake and Katherine commit are punishable by death in The Tower of London but their determination pushes dangerous limits. Considered enemies, they use each other to gain vital information. Neither expect their overwhelming attraction to one another, the staggering emotions stirred. But the closer they become, the more they jeopardize their pledges of vengeance.
Will the weight of retaliation crush them, see them beheaded? Or will Katherine and Drake form an alliance and learn to live and love again?
