As promised, here are some more of my pictures! What do you think?
If you’re not on Facebook, then you didn’t see the pictures I posted from my recent trip to Hawaii. If you did, I hope you enjoyed your mental vacation. Here are a few more to keep you in that ‘aloha’ mood! These are a mix of Kauai and Maui.

This week’s Thursday Thirteen is all about a beautiful Texas day. We do have a few, when the temperature is perfect, the breeze light, and the sky a cloudless blue bowl overhead. To put you in the mood, here’s a quote from The Bard (the English one, not the Scot).
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
It’s not quite summer here yet, thank goodness. But it is a perfect early May day. Now to the list:
Cloudless blue sky – low humidity
Wildflowers in bloom – the bluebonnets are nearly done, but they’ve been replaced by a riot of other colors
Hummingbirds at the feeder – several at a time, male and female, mostly blackchins.
Songbirds chirping in the trees – all sorts of wrens, finches, plus the occasional cardinal and western blue jay, which are not melodious, but are colorful
Perfect silence of anything man-made – no car motors, lawnmowers, airplanes, leaf blowers, or anything else Cat dozing in a sunny spot on the patio
A comfy seat to watch the cat, the birds and the breeze
The final version of Highland Seer‘s cover just arrived today. I couldn’t wait to show it off. The cover artist, Tina Lynn Stout, captured Donal’s intensity perfectly in this image. I hope you like it as much as I do!
Donal MacNabb is loyal to his adopted Lathan clan, yet he resents being a pawn in their treaty negotiations with the struggling MacKyries. The MacKyrie clan needs his skills as an arms master, but its Laird is bartering for more than Donal is prepared to give.
Ellie MacKyrie knows the Lathan treaty will help protect her clan from the neighbor determined to seize her holdings any way he can—including forcing her into marriage. But she has another reason to want the Lathan alliance. She has Seen the stubborn Donal MacNabb reaching for her in her dreams.
While Donal fights to save a clan in trouble, his desire for the MacKyrie Seer wars with his obligation to his Laird. Before she is forced into a marriage that will destroy her clan, Ellie must find the heart behind Donal’s gruff exterior and convince him he is the man of her dreams.
Highland Seer will be available later this year from all the same retailers where you can now get Highland Healer: The Wild Rose Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, and others! Watch this space for updates on availability!
