As one of England's most capable mercenaries, Emma Astyn can charm an enemy and brandish a knife with unmatched finesse. Assigned to befriend Dubh Duer, an infamous Scottish rebel, she assumes the guise of innocent damsel Christina Moffat to intercept the writ he’s carrying to a traitorous bishop. But as she gains the dark hero’s confidence and realizes they share a tattered past, compassion—and passion—distract her from the task at hand…


His legendary slaying of English knights has won him the name Dubh Duer, but Sir Patrik Cleary MacGruder is driven by duty and honor, not heroics. Rescuing Christina from the clutches of several such knights is a matter of obligation for the Scot. But there's something alluring about her fiery spirit, even if he has misgivings about her tragic history. Together, they'll endure a perilous journey of love and betrayal, and a harrowing fight for their lives…

I’m excited to share a Five Star Review for His Destiny!
“The latest Diana Cosby "His" medieval romance is an exciting tale of late thirteenth century war torn Scotland” - harstan

"Every once in a while a story comes along that makes me run the full gamut of emotions. His Destiny by Diana Cosby is one of them. This amazing story is the fourth in the MacGruder series and yes I will say it, my favorite. It is a story of danger, deception and redemption all wound into one turbulent ride." - Kimberly, Book Obsessed Chicks

Guilt edged through Emma that in the end, she would betray Patrik.  She shoved the emotion aside.  A year had passed since King Balliol had abdicated his throne at Brechin and resigned his Kingdom of Scotland to King Edward.  Regardless of any Scot’s wishes, the English king ruled their land.  It was the rebel’s decision to continue this fruitless rebellion, not her guilt to bear.

If Patrik hated her when he learned her true identity, so be it.  By then she would be gone, her mission long since completed.  Nor would he ever find a Scottish woman named Cristina Moffat.

A shout echoed in the distance.

Patrik whirled, caught her hand and hauled her beneath the dense underbrush.  “Stay!” he hissed.  Keeping his body close to the ground, he inched up the embankment to the edge of the trail where they’d walked moments before.  After a quick scan, he jumped to his feet and used a branch to erase any sign of their passage.  Tossing the limb, he hurried beneath the shield of leaves, covered her body with his.

“Say naught,” he whispered.

As if with his body flush against hers it was possible to think?  She scoured their surroundings for any sign of movement, tried to ignore the hard length of him, the feel of his entire body wrapped above hers.

And failed.

Wind rattled leaves overhead.  A raven flitted in the tree above then flew away.

Footsteps sounded nearby.

A stick cracked - closer this time, followed by a muttered curse.

Patrik’s calloused hand covered hers with surprising gentleness.

She stared at the tangle of scars battering his skin, the muscled hand atop hers.  She should pull away, not feed this delusion of his protecting her.  Instead, Emma savored his touch, his protectiveness in a world that offered none.
