Woo-hoo! New Historical Scottish Romance!



I'm proud to announce the start of a new genre series: LOVED BY A HIGHLANDER. Book 1 is THE HIGHLANDER'S SECRET PRINCESS, releasing this March. Here's the blurb off Amazon:

Scottish pride, persuasion, and passion - this is Highland romance at its breathtaking best.

Young and gutsy, Eleanor has been raised as a stable hand at Ingledew castle, unaware of her royal ancestry and the dangerous plans the Lord of Ingledew has for her. Her biggest desire is to find her mother who disappeared into Scotland when she was three. When Eleanor is sent to Scotland to be transformed into a princess and forced to wed King George, she takes advantage of an opportunity to escape, disguising herself as a boy.

In the Highlands of Scotland lives Keir McKelvey, betrothed against his wishes to the haughty daughter of Bram MacLeod. Keir is deep into the political plan to dethrone King George when he meets Eleanor. Her convincing impersonation of an English lad fools him and he compels her—thinking she’s a he—back into the center of the murderous royal plot.

Eleanor falls in love with the Highlander, but revealing her sex and her true identity could thwart everyone’s plans. Escaping again to search for her mother will cost her the crown, but staying might lead to her execution. And either choice bears the risk of never seeing the Highlander again.

★★★★★ Everything you want in a romance you can't put down.

★★★★★ Great characters and an awesome plot.

★★★★★ If you love romance with a touch of heat, this is for you. Love, danger, and excitement on every page.

SUMMER SCHOOL, book 5 in the Second Chance Teacher Romance series


SUMMER SCHOOL by Marlisa Kriscott (my pen name for Christian romance) 

Terrence Fuller is the guy with the good heart, but no clue how to act around women.

You’ve seen him flirt with Sonia and Melanie and every other single teacher at Central High. Well, almost everyone. He’s never given a second thought to the happy-go-lucky Andrea Riley, who seems more like a little sister to him.

Andrea has watched match after match being made between teachers at Central. She’s even had her own little romance with a long-term substitute teacher, but now he’s ghosting her. With so few teachers working the summer school schedule, Terrence is her only choice for someone to complain to about her disappearing love life.

Just when the light bulb goes off for Terrence and he sees Andrea’s positive traits, competition arrives. And then things get complicated.

Book 5 in the Second Chance Teacher Romance series is another sweet, clean small town romance you're going to love.

★★★★★ This clean Christian romance is on kindle unlimited too. Heart-warming and well-written.

★★★★★ Can you have a second first impression? Yes. I wasn't impressed with Terrence in earlier books, but he's my new favorite character now. He shows you how to fail at flirting and still win the girl.

★★★★★ It happened one summer ... at summer school. Who would have thought a contemporary romance set in a high school could be so entertaining?

SCHOOL'S OUT - book 4 in the Second Chance Teacher Romance series



The cool teacher, you know the one, teen girls love him, the guys want to be him, and women would lie down in his path if he’d look their way: that’s Josh Teague.

He teaches science at Central High and no one would expect him to notice, let alone be drawn to drab, frumpy Sarah Wheeling, substitute teacher.

But he is.
