In the ancient halls of Strathnaver Castle, a Scottish Highlander named Colin McKelvey harbors a powerful secret, one that could shatter the very foundation of his identity. Once known for his unwavering loyalty and noble character, Colin's world is about to be torn apart by a revelation that will leave him questioning everything he thought he knew.

As fate weaves its intricate tapestry, a series of gripping events unfolds. A relentless plague sweeps through the land, threatening to consume all in its path. Amidst the chaos and despair, Colin's heart, once warm and compassionate, turns cold and distant. He becomes a man on a desperate mission, rejecting the only family he has ever known and setting forth on a path of defiance and rebellion.

But destiny has more in store for him. In the midst of darkness, a mysterious and beguiling lass named Brooke appears, wielding an enigmatic power that can both heal and destroy. With an aura of allure and danger, she holds the key to Colin's salvation or downfall.

As the embers of Colin's past burn, a rival clan emerges, demanding Brooke's life as their prize. Bound by honor and torn by conflicting loyalties, Colin finds himself entangled in a life-altering choice. What sacrifices must he make to protect the captivating stranger who has ignited something long-lost within him? A lass whose fate hangs precariously in the balance, destined either to meet her doom at the stake or to be loved by a Highlander.

Chapter 1



LEANOR LIFTED HER long skirt and moved the toe of her brand-new boot toward the steaming manure. And giggled.

“El! Don’t you dare,” her companion called after her.

Eleanor smiled slyly at the young maid, her best and only friend, Hannah, who’d been her constant shadow for as long as she could remember. “Lady Beth will have these thrown away if they stink and I want her to throw them away. They hurt my feet. I wish I could wear my old ones.” She crinkled her nose. “And the boy’s clothes, too. I hate dresses.”

Hannah nodded in agreement. “Yes, it was easier pretending to be boys than ladies. We fought like the Chaddertons and got as dirty as the Miller twins.”

“I know.” Eleanor held her toe over the fresh horse dropping a moment more,

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.
