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

HisHighlandRose.Kindle&webIain Brodie is a fierce warrior and passionate lover, but to prove he’s responsible enough to follow his ailing father as the clan’s chief, he must give up the lasses and find a bride—quickly. He doesn’t expect to fall for any of the Rose chief’s three daughters, but he can’t get one out of his mind—or heart—even when he discovers she is not who she claims to be.

Skilled rider and archer Annie Rose values her freedom. She doesn’t want to be anyone’s bride, not even deliciously and annoyingly sexy Iain Brodie’s. But her father wants an alliance with Iain’s clan and he’s chosen her to forge it. Unaware she could be sealing the fate she desperately wants to avoid, Annie falls under Iain’s seductive spell at the spring known in old tales as the fairy pool.

But when her father suddenly decides against their match, Annie discovers the love she never expected to find—with Iain. To win her, Iain must risk losing everything he values—the clan he was born to lead and even Annie, the woman he sees for who she truly is—his only love.

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?

New Year’s Resolutions You *Might* Have Kept



OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANow that we’re well into the year, how are you doing with those New Year’s Resolutions? I’ll share some I was sure I would keep…m
aybe. 

Possibly.

Okay, well, they might work for you, if not this year, then next year.

 

Easy:

  1. Don’t make any resolutions. You never keep them anyway, so why are we still talking about this?
  2. Pick one you can finish today. Put a check in the resolutions box. You did it! You kept one!
  3. Pick one you know won’t come up until December, such as finding a holiday gift for weird uncle Al. Then you’ll have 11 months to do it or forget about it, which is nearly as good.

Moderate:

  1. Give up something you like—but not too much—that’s bad for you. Love brownies? Not a good candidate. Only so-so about snickerdoodles? Perfect!401px-Red_wine_and_chocolate_pairing
  2. Give up something for a limited amount of time. I’m not sure I could give up chocolate or caramel for a week, but one day? Maybe. Five minutes? Sure.
  3. Be a better/nicer/more generous/etc., person. Depending on your personality and inclinations, this could be easy or hard or both, so I’m putting it in the middle.

Hard:

  1. Finish that book! You know the one. You’ve been rewriting the first three chapters for the last six years.Computer_keyboard
  2. Fill a 2016 Blessings jar. This one takes a bit of dedication, but the reward at the end of the year is worth it. Every time something wonderful, significant, happy, positive…you get the idea…happens, write it down on a slip of paper and put it in the jar. At the end of the year, read and recall each bright, shining moment—if you remembered to fill the jar throughout the year.
  3. Get organized! Yes, this should be in a category labeled “Impossible” but I refuse to go there, so it goes here. Every year. My best advice? Start small and work up.

I hope your year is going splendidly!

Cheers!
