Man Seeking Woman. One Woman. There's only ever been her.

30 – 35

Within 50 miles of:
Ben More Castle, Isle of Mull, Scotland. Or London, I care not.

Hair Color:

Eye Color:
Black. Though the right one has been injured in a knife fight and is an ice blue. I'll wear an eye-patch so as not to scare others... More than usual, anyway.

What is your body type:
Let's just say, strong enough to kill you.

What is your relationship status:
I don’t have relationships other than business.

What are your political views?:
Politicians are easily bought, though I do fight for prison reform.

What is your education level?:
The brutal streets of the East End provided me all the education I needed to survive.

What is your occupation?:
Officially? That is no business of yours. Unofficially? King of the London Underworld.

Salary Range:
I have more money than the Queen.

Where did you grow up?:
Newgate Prison, London, England.

How often do you drink?:
As often as I like.

Who are a few of your friends?:
A man like me has enemies and allies. Though, I do have a handful of people who owe me fealty.
~ Christopher Argent is the highest paid assassin in the empire. We protected each other as boys in Newgate prison. I can trust him so long as our interests align.
~ Murdoch, my steward, is another man I protected in prison. He is a loyal Scotsman who committed no crime but love.
~ Walters, No one can remember his name, not even himself. It was beat out of him in Newgate by the guards.

Who are your enemies?:
Anyone who is in my way.

Describe your perfect match:
She has ringlets so astonishingly blonde they appear silvery-white, soft gray eyes and a kind smile. A divot in her chin that she taps when she's postulating. The face of an angel and the body of a temptress. Some may say it's impossible, but only she will do. Like I said, It's only ever been her.

About Kerrigan Byrne

Kerrigan has done many things to pay the bills, from law enforcement to belly dance instructor. Now she's finally able to have the career she'd decided upon at thirteen when she announced to her very skeptical family that she was going to "grow up to be a romance novelist." Whether she's writing about Celtic Druids, Victorian bad boys, or brash Irish FBI Agents, Kerrigan uses her borderline-obsessive passion for history, her extensive Celtic ancestry, and her love of Shakespeare in almost every story.

She lives at the base of the Rocky Mountains with her handsome husband and three lovely teenage girls, but dreams of settling on the Pacific Coast.

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, in the stunning debut historical romance THE HIGHWAYMAN by Kerrigan Byrne.


Dorian Blackwell, the Blackheart of Ben More, is a ruthless villain. Scarred and hard- hearted, Dorian is one of Victorian 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?
