She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he’s left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family?
Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected.

Lady Angelique Drummagan, a half-Scottish, half-French countess, has suffered much pain and betrayal in her past.

Dangerous, greedy enemies threaten her from all sides and she’s in dire need of his protection.
Sir Lachlan MacGrath, known as Seducer of the Highlands, possesses a charming wickedness and canny wit which has earned him much popularity.

Battle-hardened warrior Dirk MacLerie isn’t who everyone thinks he is. He’s Dirk MacKay, heir apparent to the MacKay chiefdom and Dunnakeil Castle on the far north coast of Scotland.

Lady Isobel MacKenzie is a beautiful young widow betrothed to yet another Highland chief by her brother’s order. But when her future brother-in-law accosts her and threatens to kill her, she is forced to flee into a Highland snowstorm. When she runs into a rugged and imposing man she thought dead, she wonders if he will turn her over to her enemy or take her to safety.
Dirk remembers the enchanting, dark-eyed Isobel from when he was a lad, but now she is bound to another man by legal contract—an important detail she would prefer to forget.

Though she fears she is endangering Keegan’s life, Seona cannot resist his seductive charm or his spellbinding kisses. Keegan sets fire to the memories of her sad past and shows her what it means to truly live. But her father has other plans. He’s arranged for her to marry a wealthy Lowland laird. Is Keegan daring enough to steal her away? Or will the vindictive Haldane snatch her first?

1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
First, thanks so much for inviting me to visit with you today! I love reading, and as a child, I found the escape into books a magical experience. The Bear in the Boat was one of the first books I read. LOL I loved that little book. It had all kinds of animal characters. I just Googled it and apparently it is rare now. It costs $60 on Amazon. I’m pretty sure I still have my copy.
2. What are you reading right now?
My own books. I’m reading the proof copies of the print books for My Daring Highlander and My Notorious Highlander, checking for any final errors. I know some people find this a chore but I actually enjoy it. Sometimes I get nostalgic for my characters and miss them, so it’s nice to visit them again. 🙂
3. How does your garden grow?
I love growing a garden! But I don’t get as much time to garden now because I try to spend as much time as possible writing. I love growing all sorts of flowers and vegetables.
4. What is the last thing you Googled?
The Bear in the Boat. 🙂 Before that it was the Clocky alarm clock. I didn’t even know these things existed until a friend of mine mentioned she had one. If I had a hard time getting up in the morning I’d buy one, but fortunately that isn’t a problem I have.
5. What makes you cringe?
Movies that are too violent and gory. Just not my thing. Of course, since I write Scottish historical romance, my books require battle scenes and some violence, but I don’t take it to extremes.
