WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE HUNTER:
"Formulating a lyrical style, sterling character development, and a palpable sense of time and place, Byrne pens another fascinating romance that delves deeply into the darker and decadent side of Victorian London. A stellar addition to a truly mesmerizing series that highlights dangerous heroes who flout the law and the women who love them." ~ Library Journal
"A deeply satisfying story of passion and mutual rescue." ~ Publisher's Weekly
"THE HUNTER is a story with dastardly villains, delicious anti-heroes, and a romance for the ages. This is a must- read for historical romance fans." ~ Fresh Fiction Review
"Byrne enthralls readers with another adventurous romance. The rapid pacing is matched by the heated sexual tension, leaving readers breathless and craving more of Byrne’s emotional, powerful, impossible-to-put-down love stories. ~ Romantic Times Book Review.
They're rebels, scoundrels, and blackguards--dark, dashing men on the wrong side of the law. But for the women who love them, a hint of danger only makes the heart beat faster...
A scandalous proposal...
Christopher Argent lives in the shadows as the empire's most elite assassin. Emotion is something he tossed away years ago, making him one of the most clear-eyed, cold-hearted, wealthiest, and therefore untouchable men in London. But when his latest target turns out to be London's own darling, Millicent LeCour, Christopher's whole world is turned upside down. Overwhelmed by her stunning combination of seduction and innocence, Christopher cannot complete the mission. She has made him feel again. Now, he will do anything to save her life, even if it means risking his own...
A perilous passion...
When Millie learns what Christopher was hired to do, she is torn between the fear in her heart and the fire in her soul. Putting herself in this notorious hunter's arms may be her only path to safety--even if doing so could be the deadliest mistake she's ever made. But how can she resist him? As the heat between her and Christopher burns out of control, danger lurks in the shadows. Is their desire worth the risk? Only the enemy knows what fate has in store...

Can the fiercest master of battle conquer a woman’s heart?
They call him the Demon Highlander. The fearsome Lieutenant Colonel Liam MacKenzie is known for his superhuman strength, towering presence, and fiery passion in the heat of battle. As Laird to the MacKenzie clan, the undefeated Marquess has vanquished his foes with all rage and wrath of his barbaric Highland ancestors. But when an English governess arrives to care for his children, the master of war finds himself up against his greatest opponent. . . in the game of love.
Defying all expectations, Miss Philomena is no plain-faced spinster but a ravishing beauty with voluptuous curves and haughty full lips that rattle the Laird to his core. Unintimidated by her master’s raw masculinity and savage ways, the headstrong lass manages to tame not only his wild children but the beast in his soul. With each passing day, Liam grows fonder of Miss Mena--and more suspicious. What secret is she hiding behind those emerald eyes? What darkness brought her to his keep? And how can he conquer this magnificent woman’s heart . . . without surrendering his own?

The Victorian Rebels Series
They're rebels, scoundrels, and blackguards--dark, dashing men on the wrong side of the law. But for the women who love them, a hint of danger only makes the heart beat faster…
Dorian Blackwell, the Blackheart of Ben More, is a ruthless villain. Scarred and hard-hearted, Dorian is one of London's wealthiest, most influential men who will stop at nothing to wreak vengeance on those who've wronged him…and will fight to the death to seize what he wants. The lovely, still innocent widow Farah Leigh Mackenzie is no exception--and soon Dorian whisks the beautiful lass away to his sanctuary in the wild Highlands…
But Farah is no one's puppet. She possesses a powerful secret--one that threatens her very life. When being held captive by Dorian proves to be the only way to keep Farah safe from those who would see her dead, Dorian makes Farah a scandalous proposition: marry him for protection in exchange for using her secret to help him exact revenge on his enemies. But what the Blackheart of Ben More never could have imagined is that Farah has terms of her own, igniting a tempestuous desire that consumes them both. Could it be that the woman he captured is the only one who can touch the black heart he'd long thought dead??

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE HIGHWAYMAN
"A passionate, lyrical romance that takes your breath away. From the first page, you'll fall in love." ~ -- Elizabeth Boyle, New York Times Bestselling Author
4 1/2 STAR From the first page, the depth of emotion and sexual tension is perfectly matched by the strong characters and superb plotting. This marriage-of-convenience love story proves why Byrne is a force in the genre. --RT Magazine
A sensual, soul-searing story readers won’t want to see end. Fortunately, this is the first in a new linked series featuring men who live by their wits and the canny women who are strong and fearless enough to teach them to love. Brilliantly done. Byrne --Library Journal
The romance is raw, edgy, and explosive. --Publisher’s Weekly
If you're anything like me, the best night is one spent in a book with a brawny Highlander, a mysterious Londoner, or a hot-headed Irishman. My books span the spectrum of romantic fiction from sweeping historical, to paranormal, to suspense. Though I will always promise my reader one thing, memorable and sexy heroes who are guaranteed to heat your blood before they steal your heart. Lose yourself in the enchanted Isles. You never know who, or what, will find you...
