Highlander’s Claim, The Matheson Warriors #2

Ebook: Amazon | Nook | iBooks | Kobo | Google Play

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, 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.


Wishing you all a wonderful week. Stay safe.

Happy Reading.

Hello, hello!

Billionaire Bodyguard Fling is here, the third book in my Billionaire Bodyguards series. Are you feeling in the mood for a friends-to-lovers story?

Bodyguard Brigs has been demanding I let you all meet Samantha, the girl he once kissed six years ago, but then stepped away from. Now these two friends are back together in the beautiful Fijian Islands for some mystery, suspense, and a whole lot of loving.

He will sacrifice anything to protect her.

As the daughter of a prominent New Zealand judge, Samantha Knight finds herself being stalked by the very man who has been acquitted of murder in one of her father’s cases. When she escapes to the Fijian Islands in the South Pacific for seclusion, her bodyguard makes chase after her when he learns her stalker is in pursuit.

Brigs Brigstone has never let any client down, or allowed the innocent he protects to be harmed, yet protecting Samantha will be a mission all unto itself. Letting his guard down around her isn’t easy, yet he’s known her his entire life and the spark which has always existed between them is about to burst into flame.

Can he locate her stalker, and all while keeping her out of the enemy’s claws?

Content Note: Short story of 18,000 words, with a sexy bodyguard and a hot heat level. (Standalone novella.)

Exclusive Excerpt:

“I shouldn’t have kissed you just now.” Brigs pushed a firm hand through his hair and eyed Samantha. She was toppling his barriers one by one, barriers he’d spent six years erecting between them. Six years. One provocative kiss, and in all this time, he’d never once stopped wanting her. “My work is dangerous, and I’m often away on location with clients.”

“I’m aware of how seriously you take your job, and I love that you do.” She swished closer, her long brown hair swaying so damn enticingly about her hips, and those denim cutoffs of hers showing off two beautiful lean legs. Cutoffs that were also far too short. Yeah, if she bent over in them, he’d be able to make out the lower curves of her ass.

Nope, no thinking about her very fine ass. He frowned, forced his mind back on the right track. “That means I have no time for a relationship, not with any woman, not even with you, Sammy.”

“You could make time if you wanted to, but I’m not asking for a lifetime commitment. All I’m asking for is that you join me in my bedroom. Maybe if we slept together this once”—she raised one sassy brow, her voice all sultry and hot—“we might be able to release this simmering tension between us. We could enjoy a short fling as such. What do you say?”

New Release from Joanne Wadsworth – HIGHLANDER’S SHIFTER!




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.

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.”

His clan’s future depends upon it.

Fiona had never seen Coll so stripped down and very naked before.

Back a step, she inched until she hit her back on the corner bedpost. She cast her gaze down his impressively built body once more, his muscles all sleek and hard and—she cleared her throat. “So, I see you’re a big man, ah, everywhere.

“Aye, I’m most definitely dreaming, because that is exactly what I would have wanted you to say when you first looked upon me.” The gold flecks flickered brighter in his stunning brown eyes and with one finger crooked, he motioned for her to come back to him. “Dinnae be afraid of me, my fiery empath.”

“I’ve never been afraid of you, but then I’ve never quite seen you like this afore.” Return she would though. She inched forward, until the tips of her toes touched the tips of his bare toes, then she tipped her chin up and looked him in the eyes. “You appeared to be enjoying your bath, while you spoke my name.”

“Aye, I always do speak of you when I bathe and dream like this.” He wrapped his hands around her waist, dipped her back off her feet and touched his mouth to hers. He kissed her, so whisper-soft, as if he wished to savor the taste of her then with a low growl, he deepened their kiss, his tongue sliding over hers in a kiss that completely scattered all her thoughts.

Naught had ever felt so right.

Coll was kissing her, for the first time, and he was completely naked too.
