I’m taking part in Authors Helping Houston. During this event, proceeds from sales of HIS HIGHLAND HEART (His Highland Heart Series Book 1) will go to San Antonio Pets Alive! SAPA! has taken in hundreds of homeless animals saved from the Houston floods and found foster homes to care for them until they can be placed in a new forever home.
From SAPA!’s website: So far, SAPA! has been involved in 4 journeys to areas hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey to provide relief to exhausted animal welfare workers and the animals who have been suffering. Trips to these areas haven’t been without difficulties, as SAPA! staff has encountered fuel shortages and roads blocked by high water. However, many more animals still need to be saved from the flood zones, and entire pet shelters are still at risk..The animals in Houston have found themselves out of options, just like the animals we save from the euthanasia kennels. We will be continuing our San Antonio operations as usual, but we are glad to be able to help Houston’s most vulnerable animal populations. Those who want to help have several options, including donating, fostering, volunteering, or bringing supplies.”

“What happens when three sister gang up on their father to get what they want?”
Iain Brodie is a fierce warrior and passionate lover, but to prove he’s responsible enough to follow his ailing father as the clan’s chief, he must give up the lasses and find a bride—quickly. He doesn’t expect to fall for any of the Rose chief’s three daughters, but he can’t get one out of his mind—or heart—even when he discovers she is not who she claims to be.
Skilled rider and archer Annie Rose values her freedom. She doesn’t want to be anyone’s bride, not even deliciously and annoyingly sexy Iain Brodie’s. But her father wants an alliance with Iain’s clan and he’s chosen her to forge it. Unaware she could be sealing the fate she desperately wants to avoid, Annie falls under Iain’s seductive spell at the spring known in old tales as the fairy pool.
But when her father suddenly decides against their match, Annie discovers the love she never expected to find—with Iain. To win her, Iain must risk losing everything he values—the clan he was born to lead and even Annie, the woman he sees for who she truly is—his only love.
