New Release! Heart of Stone

IMG_2782Heart of Stone is out! 

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?

A New Chapter!

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.

AmazonEncore helps readers discover extraordinary, previously-published, overlooked books from emerging authors.

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.

Highland Talents on TV!

In case you missed it, my books were recently featured on San Antonio Living along with books by fellow San Antonio Romance Authors members.  Like you, the hostess, Shelly Miles, is quite taken with my covers!  And former SARA president Patricia Walters-Fisher did a wonderful job introducing all the books.

HIGHLAND TROTH’s WorldWide Release Day!

I’m so excited! Today is worldwide release day for HIGHLAND TROTH, the third full-length book and fourth title in my Scottish historical paranormal Highland Talents series. If you love men in kilts, romance, and the Highlands of Scotland, you’ll love this book!  

Jamie Lathan’s story is one my readers have been asking for since the first Highland Talents book, HIGHLAND HEALER, came out a little over two years ago. Writing HIGHLAND TROTH took a while—I wanted to create a memorable love match for Jamie. That meant nothing could come easily for him or for Caitrin. They had years to pine for each other, but trouble really started when they finally reunited.

I think you’ll enjoy their journey.
