A Man who would be Laird

Angus MacAnalen fully expects to succeed his dead brother as Laird. But on the day of the Clan Council’’s vote, a new lass steals his breath and his heart, making him question the ambition that drives him. When he begins to suspect she has a hidden talent that could help his clan, he must overcome the painful disappointment of the past before it costs him the future he desires.

A Lass in Exile

Because of her strange ability, Shona’’s village banished her to live with a distant uncle after her parents died. When she catches the eye of the prospective laird of her new home, she fears the clan’’s scrutiny may cause her to be expelled again, or worse. But Angus seems determined to win her heart, and Shona can’’t help wanting to give it to him, despite the risks.

A Love Lifted out of the Ruins

Broken promises and broken dreams litter their pasts, and their present. Can they build a future from the ruins?

Still Looking for a Present?

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.

Celebrate Read a Romance Month in August!

August is Read A Romance Month! Now that’s an event worth celebrating–and I’m late to the party.  Well, I’ve been a bit busy, in revisions on one book, finishing another, plotting another, and…where has this month gone?  

To give you some ideas for your next favorite romance full of men in kilts, I’ve partnered with some fellow Scottish Historical Romance authors to bring you some of their favorite locations in Scotland, many of which they’ve used in their books.  You can find Part 1 of the article on HEAUSAToday!  There will be more next Monday, as well, so if you, like me, are watching Outlander and are yearning for a trip to the Highlands, or if making that trip has always been on your bucket list, you’ll want to check that out!

And while you’re at it, look for these books at your favorite bookstore!

You might find a new favorite book, or new favorite author–after me, of course!  Enjoy!

Highland Healer

Willa Blair

He needs her for his clan. He wants her for himself. Can he have both?

Toran Lathan never expected to become Laird, and never expected to meet a woman like Aileanna Shaw. Her healing ability is just what his people need, but Toran cannot resist her beauty. Yet will loving him destroy her ability to heal?

Aileanna Shaw has a healing touch–and a special talent she must keep secret. Stolen from her home by a marauding army, she’s kidnapped again by the Highland Laird she heals. Is she a prize of war, or the prize of his heart?

While Toran battles the invading lowland army, he also battles his desire for Aileanna. And Aileanna must decide if she can trust her secrets to this fierce warrior who needs her talent, but wants her love.

Beyond a Highland Whisper

Maeve Greyson

The last time Latharn MacKay walked among his kinsman was in Scotland of 1410. Sensuous and charismatic, all the women wanted him, but none could capture his heart. Latharn’s charm became his curse when a dark sorceress didn’t take rejection well. She snared his soul into a crystal globe until the one woman destined to be his love whispered his release. Now all Latharn has to do is find her and guide her to him without speaking a word.

One of the youngest archeologists in St. Louis of 2010, Nessa credits one thing for this achievement: the recurring dream of a heart-stopping Highlander since the summer she turned eighteen years old. Little does she know, he’s not some fantasy cooked up by her subconscious. He’s a trapped soul determined for Nessa to end his six centuries in hell. Can love prevail over the dark magic of a woman scorned?

Into The Scottish Mist

Beth Anne Miller

Abby Sanders returns to her beloved Scotland after a long absence, seeking peace after a terrible tragedy. A chance detour reunites her with Ian Mackenzie, the love she left behind four years ago. Their attempt to rekindle their romance along the shore of Loch Ness is cut short when Abby vanishes.

After a desperate search for the woman he’s spent four years trying to forget, Ian is forced to believe the unbelievable: he must travel through the mists of time to find Abby. But finding her is just the beginning. Trapped four hundred years in the past, Abby and Ian must find a way to end a bitter clan feud or sacrifice their return to the present and their future together.

Immortal Justice

Faith V. Smith

Over a millennium ago, Highlander Darach MacRath was murdered. Resurrected by the Archangel Michael to fight demons as an Immortal Executioner, Darach now opposes all evil in the mortal world. His life is solitary—but when he rescues a young woman who not only sees demons but battles them herself, he is captivated by her courage and beauty.

Abigail Dupree is not looking for love. But when a tall, dark demon fighter with a sexy brogue intervenes in her hunt, she’s fascinated. She should run away—but then his gentle yet sizzling touch ensnares her heart.

When a demon from Darach’s past sets his sights on Abby, Darach will do anything to protect her—but for Abby, losing him would be worse than death. Together they must fight the demons of past and present, and the possibility that evil could destroy them both, before they find the gift of love.
