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.
To celebrate HIGHLAND TROTH’s release, I’m having a Worldwide Release Day party today on Facebook from 9 am to 9 pm CST. Please drop by and say hello! My wonderful guest authors will bring lots of games, contests and prizes. You just never know what might happen—you might even win a $100 gift card!
I’ll see you there!
You can get HIGHLAND TROTH (Highland Talents Book 3) at the following booksellers. Don’t see your favorite bookseller listed yet? Check their website for late arrivals!

Visitors to Scotland have a saying: “A B C.” It stands for “another bloomin’ castle” or “another bloody castle”, depending on your preference, as in “here we are, visiting another…”. You get the idea. I’m sure the same holds true for the rest of Great Britain, France, and many other places. Nonetheless, those castles are fascinating places to visit and included on tours for many reasons. They’re picturesque, they are remnants of a past about which we’ve forgotten much. They’re often architectural marvels. And they’re romantic.
On my recent trip to Scotland, I did the ABC tour, which also included some gorgeous stately homes, as well. Take a look!
Cameron House on the shores of Loch Lomond
Cawdor Castle and lovely gardens
Culloden House and incredible walled garden
Blair Castle and not a Blair in sight (save me) – it’s the seat of the Murrays
Holyroodhouse Palace Royal Residence and ruined Abbey
St. Andrews ruined castle by the sea
Now that you’ve seen these, where would you like to go on your own ABC tour?
Have you read the award-winning second book in my Highland Talents series, HIGHLAND SEER? If not, now is a perfect time to get it for yourself and all your friends! The Amazon #1 Medieval Historical Romance bestseller is on sale for 99 cents.

This month, I’m finally making that dream trip to Scotland. I can’t wait!
In the meantime, I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite fellow Scottish historical romance authors to provide a virtual tour of some of their favorite places in Scotland, especially those they’ve used in their books. If you’re dreaming of your own Highland adventure and looking for ideas, you can read more at the USAToday HEA blog here and here!
And if you can’t make the trip anytime soon, don’t despair. Until you can, our books will transport you to the hills, lochs and glens. Oh, and might find a few men in kilts on the pages, too!
