Scotland is everything they say it is–and more.  Beautiful, mystical, historical, sunny, misty, fortified, spirited…I could go on, but for once, I’d rather show you!

Have you dreamed of being on the water? Or of what might be in it?

Lochs Lomond, Lochy and Ness

Might you fancy a Wee Dram?


Or care to try your hand at hunting with a hawk, or owl, or eagle?


Have you touched a Standing Stone or seen a Fairy Ring?

At Clava Cairns

Or visited a Castle or Manor House?

Stirling, Cawdor, Blair, Edinburgh, and St.Andrews Castles, Holyrood Palace, Culloden and Cameron Houses

Seen the heather in bloom in the Highlands, or visited breathtaking gardens?


If my pictures make you long to be in Scotland, go!  It’s not too late to enjoy more of the 2014 Year of Homecoming events.  Or wait for next spring.  Whenever you visit, you’ll have a wonderful time!

September is for…SCOTLAND!

image002This 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!
