perf5.000x8.000.inddPreorder Now—Releases October 19th!

Widow Lara MacLaren hungers for the hunky architect she hires to restore her derelict Scottish manor, but is she ready for a relationship…and is Ian ready for her twins?

Ian Paterson is eager to awaken Lara’s passionate side. Yet, if he reveals his ancestral claim to her estate, he risks losing her and his job. His clan’s history, lost over the years, may be hidden in the walls—along with a ghost waiting for the laird’s return.

When they uncover a room full of Jacobite treasure, proof of his ancestry, Ian realizes he’s out of time. If the ghost is real, it could expose his secret and destroy his romance with Lara. Ian must convince her she and her twins are the future he truly wants.

“It’s an absolutely heart-warming story rich with love of family, of memories, of new beginnings, and the fidelity of one most unusual ghost. It’s a delight.” Chassie West, Edgar- and Anthony-nominated author of mystery and suspense

Bound home after two years away, Gavan MacNabb comes across a lass and her deerhound in a moonlit circle of standing stones. Little does he know that the garland of bluebells she weaves and the spell she sings will change the course of his life.

Marsali Murray doesn’t really believe the old wives’ tale that making a chain of bluebells by the standing stones under a waxing moon will bring true love, but she’s desperate to try anything to escape the boring, everlasting sameness of her life. Anything except marrying a man her father chooses for her. When her deerhound, Corrie, insists on following Gavan, Marsali decides that’s the excuse she needs to have the adventure she craves. She’ll go where he goes, whether he is the man promised by her spell—or not.

Gavan has already seen much of the world denied to Marsali. He’s ready to settle down. She is eager to spread her wings. Can they find what they need with each other?

Take a Hawaiian Holiday With Sweetie Pie!

CandyHeartsJust in time for Valentine’s Day 2016!  Enjoy Sweetie Pie, my new contemporary fantasy novella—with plenty of Candy Hearts romance.

 

perf5.000x8.000.indd

You’re going to love Sweetie Pie! It’s different in several ways from my historical Highland Talents series. For one thing, it has contemporary sensibilities—in other words, it’s a bit spicier. And to give you a much-needed break from mid-winter, it’s set in beautiful, balmy, sunny Hawaii.

But to keep the connection you and I love to all things Scottish, the heroine, Makenna, is from Scotland. Her name sounds Scottish, but it’s more than it appears to be. It’s also a Hawaiian name, which makes it a perfect blend to reflect her heritage—a Scottish father and Hawaiian mother.

And Makenna’s Valentine, Tom, the surfer? Well, he’s more than he appears to be, too.

I hope you’ll enjoy a holiday from 16th century Scotland to visit present-day Kailua-Kona with me. 

Makenna Stewart flees Scotland for the Big Island of Hawaii intent on making real a cherished dream—a bakery of her own. Hard work and long hours leave Makenna craving some fun in her life. Her best customer, Greek-god sexy surfer Tom may be just what she needs, but she suspects there’s more to him than board shorts and a devastating smile.

Retired professional surfer and real-estate multi-millionaire Tom Bensford, is there when she opens every morning, but he’s not craving her Morning Glory muffins. Fascinated by the dark-haired, blue-eyed wahine with the creamy Celtic skin and devastating Scottish accent, he’s never met a woman like her. Too bad he’s about to destroy her dreams.

To him, it’s just business. To her, it’s the kind of betrayal she fled Scotland to escape. Can the island magic in Makenna’s heritage save her dream and their romance, or will his secret tear them apart?
