I've known Christine for a while, both as author and as publisher. I can certainly recommend her books, they're great reads.
Here's an excerpt from the novel:
In a dark corner in the Stony Brook Tavern, Whipple slumped a bit farther in his chair and pulled the hood on his dark gray cloak until the fabric fell just past his eyebrows. His eyes searched, seeking out every person who entered the room.
Edinburgh was a cesspool of information. He'd learned she was accused of treason and that someone had told tales of potions and herbal lore. He'd learned enough to make him shiver in his boots as well as fear for Keely's life.
Nothing would stop the King.
Whipple's worst fears had been confirmed. That bastard, Ian MacPherson, had been sent by King James to bring Keely to judgment. His fists tightened against his thighs, yet he held his volatile emotions in check. How long could he continue this strange masquerade?
How long could he protect his charge?
The stake had already been built. The pyre ready. The people chanting for the witch to burn. And there were trumped up murder charges.
Chills as well as sweat slithered down his spine. He wasn't ready to return to Keely's village or tell her the truth he just discovered. He wanted to learn how deep Ian's loyalty to James ran. Ian was brother to the MacPherson, a formidable man. Yet rumor had it that Hawke MacPherson handed over his wife's estate in England to Ian. Living on English soil could be a blessing for Keely, but only if Ian fell in love and if he could keep her from practicing her art.
English soil could bring safe sanctuary to Keely.
Once again his body trembled. Terror ran swift and deep within.
