Paperback: Amazon | B&N

He seeks the one his heart desires…

Ailith, the granddaughter of the King of the Fae, travels through time when needed to aid her half-blooded Earthbound kind. Her ability allows her to see visions of war and destruction before it unfolds, and now death is coming for one of the fae warriors she is called to protect, except to save him, she must first discover exactly who he is, and which time he might come from.

Warrior shifter Hunter Matheson is intrigued by Ailith when she arrives through a portal into his twenty-first century time from the year 1211. A feud rages over eight-hundred years in the past between his fae-blooded shifter clan and their neighboring enemy, and now he’s driven in his desires for her, would give his life to protect hers. His fierce need for her strikes him deep within. He’s certain she’s the woman who holds the other half of his soul and now there’s nothing he won’t do to remain right by her side, no matter what war she seeks to halt, or if he’s the very warrior she must save from certain death.

Can Ailith keep Hunter safe, or will he perish exactly as she’s foreseen?


Hi everyone, Highlander’s Claim is here. I’m going to drop a tasty excerpt below. I absolutely loved writing this book, and I can’t wait for you to all meet Cherub’s nieces. Ailith is one of them, and she features in this book, and wow, she leads Hunter on a merry chase during the forging of their mated bond. Expect, action, adventure, battles, and fierce love.


EXCERT:

Ailith squeezed her hands into fists and tried not to open the door and bound back out. She both wanted to be with Hunter, and didn’t. His safety was only assured if she set these rising emotions for him aside and returned to the past. She couldn’t take him with her, and he wasn’t permitted to follow. That was the only option moving forward, until she no longer saw a vision of him perishing.

The cracking of bones echoed under the door then the heavy thump and scratch of paws resounded. Shifters could be incredibly territorial and if they were mated, he would be even more territorial due to their bond. Somehow, he’d already tracked her down. Drat it all. She jiggled from foot to foot, so unsure as to what to do. Let Hunter come in and spell him to forget her again? Or ignore him?

More thumping and scratching, a bear’s muzzle pressed to the gap under the doorway and a snort and growl rumbling through. Ugh, he wasn’t leaving, not until she’d dealt with him again. Heart squeezing in on itself, she opened her door and leaned against the doorjamb, then tried her best to assert as much authority into her voice as she could. “What do you want?”

A big bear prowled back and forth, Hunter’s clothing scattered across the floor of the passageway. He’d shifted in a hurry, and boy, did she have her work cut out for her with him. His bear’s golden shifter eyes drilled into hers, his beast holding a stunning brown pelt with white-tipped paws.

He rumbled another grizzly growl, then padded past her into her chamber before turning around in a slow circle in the middle of the room at the end of her four-poster bed. He sat on his rump on the white rug, his front legs straight and ears alert as he observed her like one did when examining a bug under a microscope. Aye, and she was currently the bug.

Hi everyone, I’ve had some fun putting together these two Limited Edition Boxed Sets, just for you. These are some of my favorite stories boxed into two scrumptious collections, which I hope you’ll love too. Don’t miss out on grabbing your copies today, because they’re only available for a short time.

On the writing front, I’ve had my head down and fingers flying. Highlander’s Claim will be here July 25th and is currently available for pre-order. While The Duke’s Bride, my first Regency Romance, is coming October 24th (not yet on pre-order.) I had so much fun writing about the Duke of Ashten and his runaway bride. I actually had no idea how much I’d love dipping into England 1810. The research involved in writing this book was intense, about three weeks long, but so incredibly enjoyable. I may also have driven my hubby and kids slightly insane over that time while I recounted all I’d learnt. They should be right up to speed now though on almost every facet of the Napoleonic Wars. Haha. And if not, I’ll get them there in no time.

Here are the pre-order links again for Highlander’s Claim if you’d like them ~

Can Ailith keep Hunter safe, or will he perish exactly as she’s foreseen?


Hi everyone, I had such a blast writing Highlander’s Claim and getting to know Hunter and Ailith. Ailith is actually Cherub’s niece, one of the full-blooded fae from beyond the veil, and in this story more of the faerie realm comes to light. You’ll also get to meet Ailith’s sisters too, both of whom have their own story in the next two books in this series. Cherub and Kirk sure have their work cut out for them watching over these three cheeky lasses. Excitingly, Isla also features in Highlander’s Claim as well, and she’s getting very close to the end of her pregnancy. I can’t wait for her twin sons (holding the seer ability) to be born. Isla and Iain have actually asked me (well, demanded) I write their story about their travels to Stirling Castle far in the past, as well as the coming birth of their babies, so that will be happening since they won’t let me be. 🙂

In other exciting news, I’ve also written my first Regency Romance in the last couple of months, and plotted out a further three Regency novels in this new series titled REGENCY BRIDES. The first book, The Duke’s Bride, will release October 24th, 2017. Here’s a sneak peek at the cover, just for you. No pre-order links yet, but they’ll be up late July.

HIGHLANDER’S SHIFTER is HERE!

 

20-highlanders_shifter_1He seeks the one his heart desires…

With their fae-blooded clan teetering on the verge of extinction, Jamie Matheson finds himself battling a deep attraction to one of the few remaining unmated women within his clan, a woman he’s not permitted to touch unless a soul bond forms between them. Like his fellow clansmen, he must ensure her protection, even if that means from himself.

Annabella wishes to forge a mated bond with only one man, yet when Jamie treks deep into the Highlands in order to put some distance between them, she soon discovers not all is as it seems, not when her very spirit calls out to Jamie’s from across the ages. It appears they’ve both lived in two separate times, here in the future and far in the past, and now if they ever wish to complete the bond and come together as one, they must first right the wrongs of their deadly past. It’s time to return to when they first discovered their mated bond began, the year 1211.

Come and immerse yourself in this riveting historical time travel romance, one which crosses the centuries and brings together lost souls.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

Jamie slid one arm around Bella’s waist and tipped her back against the warm black metal of his SUV door before muttering, “This is a dangerous mission, with not only two rogue bears on the loose but me as well, and I’m one damn hungry unmated male after a bond. Don’t take my warning lightly, Annabella.”

“Bella. And I’m well aware you’re one damn hungry male.” She ran her hands up over his large biceps and curled her fingers around them. “Clearly you need to stake your claim while we’re here. I understand why with two possible rogues so near, so whatever you need to do to calm your bear, then do it. Stake whatever claim you wish. Cover me in your scent, and if that’s not enough, I give you permission to kiss me.”

“I want to do more than saturate you in my scent.” He nuzzled her neck, scraped his teeth back and forth across her pounding pulse point and sent all her thoughts scattering as he did. “I’m ravenous, have been walking an incredibly tight line around you of late.”

“And I trust you to keep walking along that tight line and not to deviate from it.” Certainly no man had ever made her feel so safe and secure as Jamie did, no matter the current frustration rising within him and leaking past his guards. “I wouldn’t mind if you took me up on my offer though. Smother me in your scent and kiss me.”

She’d been dreaming of how he’d kiss her, how he’d touch his lips to hers and share the same breath as her. His gaze narrowed and that delicious rumble vibrated again in his chest and rose upward. It left his throat in a snarly rasp and she couldn’t help but tighten her grip on his arms. “I dare you to kiss me, Jamie.”

“Careful, Bella. You’re treading into dangerous territory.”

“And you’re not treading into it quite fast enough.”

HIGHLANDER’S SWORD

There can be only one…for both of them.

Year 1210, Scottish Highlands.

Annella, the fae-blooded daughter of a warrior, holds the spirit-walker ability. With her fae skill, she has only one goal, to find the man who captured her father and brother and seek retribution. The last thing she expects though is to connect within her dreams with an infuriatingly rugged Highlander of shifter blood who lives over eight-hundred years in the future. Her destiny is set, to free her nearest and dearest, not to lure the warrior from the future back into her time.

Highland warrior shifter Alec Matheson meets the most intriguing lass who visits him in his dreams, a woman who also poses the greatest challenge. His soul bound mate has come to him during her greatest time of need, and now he must travel back through time to aid her. His lithe, golden-haired enchantress wears lad’s clothing and is swift with the sword and trained in all manner of warfare. She is also nothing like he expects, yet everything he has ever desired.

Determined to bind his mysterious chosen one to him, he must first make certain they both survive her perilous mission. Seeking retribution could ensure their death, or unite their spirited souls. Let the battle for love begin.
