"... a suspenseful tale of love and romance, a future-age saga, a sort of science-fiction Gone With The Wind.” ~ Novelspot

 


The Rebel Lord

Lord Lachlan de Douglas, a noble warrior lord, is heir to a Clan of Ancient Earth.  Bold, rebellious, possessing strength and passion, he defends his clan from annihilation against a wretched war of masked vengeance and treacherous shadows.  Until one day, a sudden horror alters his being, condemning him to a world of private anguish and torment.

Kimberly Kinsale, a diplomat's daughter, is a rare beauty motivated by honesty and integrity.  Serving as a lieutenant in an elite combat fighter group aboard a war ship, she governs her life by the intrigue and lies of her commanding officer.  A moment of lunacy and folly, a secret revealed, and Kimberly stumbles upon an unspeakable deception.  

Now she must decide.  Maintain her loyalty, or betray her clan and ship for a Douglas enemy lord who can prove the truth - never knowing the battle for justice would take her through Lachlan's nightmare, a rage so deep, a suffering grounded in shame and pride, even when peace shone in sight.  

For theirs is an unexpected passion, born in the fires of a shared need and desperate struggle.  And as time slowly runs out - even an exquisite love may not be enough for salvation.  To save Lachlan, Kimberly will fight the sinister legacy of the matrix robots and trust the handsome enemy lord with her life, her heart and her very soul. 


The Rebel Lord

Excerpt

Slow . . . gray . . . painful . . .

Lachlan became aware of his surroundings . . . humming echoes, metal smells, and things that did not belong.

He was on a moving ship.

He lay naked beneath a blue blanket.  He recalled vivid dreams of a green-eyed monster woman sitting on him and stabbing him with . . . with pointed fingers.

Gritting his teeth with stubborn determination, he pushed up on his arms and took in his surroundings.  He was in a small room with pale walls and two dim amber lights in the ceiling.  He glanced left and frowned.  A young woman slept in a chair near the bed.  He did not recognize her.  As if sensing his perusal, long dark lashes lifted, and a pair of lovely green eyes settled on him.

Old 2004 Book

Some of you may remember the series' limited run with a Canadian publisher who went out of business.  To ward off any confusion with the new release, I posted the old 2004 cover at left. Used copies of this book can still be found on some websites.  

The new DARKSCAPE: The Rebel Lord from  Medallion Press is a completely rewritten book and is available on line and in bookstores.
