"Charming early eighteenth century romantic fantasy"
In 1728 Kate MacCarran like all the women of her clan,
enjoys special fairy-like powers. Her particular skill is
the ability to control men like a mythological siren.
Currently, the Jacobyte supporter uses her gift to obtain
information from English officers earning her the
reputation as "Katie Hell".
Fellow Scot, but British soldier Alec Frasier captures
Kate. He plans to take her to Edinburgh, but must somehow
avoid the spell that she casts on males to do her bidding.
To her shock Kate feels Alec has cast a spell on her
because she finds for the first time in her life she wants
a man. Even more stunning is his ability to not succumb to
her enchanting charm. As they travel together towards
Edinburgh, both struggle to keep their growing feelings and
needs for the other in line as neither wants to fall in
love with the enemy.
KEEPING KATE is a charming early eighteenth century
romantic fantasy starring two likable protagonists
struggling between their cause and their awareness of the
other. Kiss Me Kate is a fabulous siren, who seems to have
met her match or at least her soulmate in Alec who wants
her more than anything he ever desired in his life, but
tries to hide these gut level needs. Sarah Gabriel provides
a delightful historical treat for sub-genre fans.
