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

Previously Published in the anthology, Kissing the Highlander, Heart of Stone is a Highland Talents prequel. In it, you’ll get a glimpse of young Donal MacNabb. You’ll see him as man to be reckoned with in Highland Healer. Better yet, he gets his own romance and adventure in Highland Seer.
My Highland Talents stories are set in the years following what has been called the worst defeat Scotland suffered at the hands of the English. Despite having established diplomatic relations with England and having married Henry VIII’s sister, Margaret Tudor, James IV was forced to honor the Auld Alliance when France went to war with England. He died in battle at Flodden Field in 1513 along with most of his nobles, clan chiefs and their heirs. For years, Scotland was ruled by Regents and fell into chaos.
Heart of Stone takes place in happier times, 11 years before that tragedy. A patron of education and the arts, James IV was Scotland’s Renaissance king. In 1496, he made education compulsory for the upper classes, which leads Donal’s older brother, Gavan MacNabb to St. Andrews and beyond, before his journey home in Heart of Stone.
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?

I’ve just entered a new chapter in my publishing career! Amazon Publishing bought the rights to Highland Healer and Highland Seer from The Wild Rose Press, and will release them on 31 March under Amazon Publishing’s AmazonEncore imprint. Prior to that date, they are available for preorder.
I’m thrilled to be under contract with this publishing powerhouse. This will mean some changes, of course–good ones. Along with Amazon’s promotional reach, the most visible change is that my first two books are now sporting fabulous new covers!
Available in print and on Kindle exclusively from Amazon, Highland Healer and Highland Seer have not been modified in any way other than the new covers. The audiobook versions are still available from Amazon, Audible.com and Tantor.
I’m thrilled to join Amazon Publishing’s exclusive family of authors. And I’m eternally grateful to The Wild Rose Press, not only for making this new arrangement possible, but for buying Highland Healer three years ago, launching my career as a debut published author. I look forward to continuing my long and successful association with The Wild Rose Press, and to my new relationship with Amazon Publishing.
I’m now a hybrid, multi-published, multi-publisher author. Wow.
