Every man in England wanted her...
She was called “the Crimson Lady.” But Fiona Byrne wants no part of the notorious life she was compelled to lead, adopting instead the disguise of a simple seamstress. Then she is discovered by Braedan de Cantor, a desperate and daring stranger who threatens to expose her. Never has there been one so dangerous to the peaceful life she’d fought to achieve. But the greatest peril of all lies deep in her heart.One man would have her...
Robbed of his good name and fortune, and cast among England’s criminals, he sought the legendary lady outlaw to save his sister. But the many tales of her extraordinary beauty and cunning did not do the Crimson Lady justice, and Braedan soon finds himself falling under her enchantment, even as he forces Fiona to re-enter the dark world she dreads. And though danger beyond reasoning awaits them, he will let no harm befall the passionate, incomparable woman who now so completely captivates his heart and his soul...and offers them both a future more magnificent than either dared to imagine.

As the sixth of seven girls in a family of readers, Mary's early life was filled with activity, excitement-and books. Drawn by the intense emotions and happy-ever-after endings penned by her favorite authors, Mary decided that she, too, wanted to write stories that might wEND
their way into readers' hearts.However, it wasn't until she finished her undergraduate degree in Russian and English and her master's degree in English Literature that she was able to seriously pursue her lifelong dream.Now married to her college sweetheart and the mother of two girls of her own, Mary teaches high school English in upstate New York -- and feels fortunate to also have the chance to weave her romantic tales, creating worlds where justice always prevails and where love does indeed conquer all. From Booklist:
Brandan de Cantor is frantic with worry. While he was away fighting in the Crusades, his nefarious uncle sold his beloved younger sister, Elizabeth, into prostitution, and now Brandan must find her. But as a knight of the realm and the son of a noble justice, he has no idea where to look. Desperate, he enlists the reluctant help of the notorious prostitute known as "The Crimson Lady," Giselle de Coeur. Giselle, going by the name of Fiona Byrne, is now a respectable owner of an embroidery shop, and although she might be Brandan's only hope, she has no desire to return to the sadistic man who bought her from her mother and who it took her years to escape. McCall's winning and romantic tale of an honorable knight who becomes an outlaw to attain justice and a virtuous courtesan who risks her freedom for a girl she's never met will appeal to fans of medieval romances with strong heroines, such as those by Haywood Smith and Jude Deveraux. Shelley Mosley
