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 ~

 Highlander’s Claim, The Matheson Warriors #2

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.

New Release from Joanne Wadsworth – HIGHLANDER’S SHIFTER!

 

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.”

Come and be Seduced by a Highlander.

Highlander’s Seduction- Release Day

I’m so excited for the release of Highlander’s Seduction, and to finally bring you Kirk’s story. This is also available for Kindle Unlimited readers, as is the entire Matheson Brothers series. She’s an elusive fae princess, and he’s a warrior who won’t rest until he makes her his. Expect fierce warriors, mischievous fae, and sexy shifters. (All books in the series are stand-alone, although I do highly recommend you start with book one. That way you won’t miss out on any of the Matheson Brothers’ fun.)

HIGHLANDER’S SEDUCTION ~ Bringing soul bound mates together across time is Cherub’s duty. She’s a fae princess, and the last person she expects to meet is her very own soul mate, or to tangle with a warrior who won’t rest until he makes her his.

Buy HIGHLANDER’S SEDUCTION at: Amazon Kindle

There can be only one…for both of them.

Three identical brothers known as the ‘power of three’ are on a quest to find their mates after being sent back in time to the year 1210 when their Highlander shifter clan first began. Nothing will deter them, not when they must save their future line from extinction.

Cherub, the faerie king’s daughter is one of the few who holds the ability to open a portal and travel through time. As a time-walker, she’s responsible for ensuring those of her fae-blooded kind living on Earth find their soul bound match, no matter what time they might live in. The last thing she expects though is for her shifter mate to travel into the past and begin closing in on her. Her destiny is set, to aid others in finding their chosen ones, not in becoming the very one she hunts.

Highland warrior shifter Kirk Matheson won’t rest until he finds the one woman who is meant to be his. Only when he discovers his mate has no wish to give up her duty in aiding her kind, does he decide the hunter must now become the hunted.

Determined in his mission to capture his elusive imp, he must find a way for them to be together…to bind the mischievous Fae Angel of Love to his side and ensure she accepts her greatest destiny, that of being his one and all.

 

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Cherub?” Kirk swept his hands through the air as he searched for her along the beach. “Where are you?”

“I’m right here.” She twirled around again, cloaked and unseen to his eyes. “I love this place.”

“As soon as I stumbled upon it, I felt as if I’d come home. There’s a secluded bay very similar to this one at Loch Shin, a place I’m often drawn to, and a place that’s only a few hours’ drive from my home at Ivanson Castle.” He glanced at the sand she’d kicked up then followed her movement and caught her in his arms. His hands slid underneath the flapping sides of her cloak and around her back. Caressing her, he swept down her sides and over her waist. A grin lifted his lips. “You’re wearing a silk gown. What color?”

“The gown is white, as is my cape. ’Tis one of my favorite colors. Have you truly been drawn to Loch Shin?” She raised her hands to the glittering jewel of the darkened sky above and leaned back, allowing him to take her full weight as she did.

“During these past five years my search for you has only ever led me in and around that area, more times than not to a place called Angel Bay along the loch’s shores. Is that place special to you at all?”

“Oh my.” The home she’d built and considered a base rested high on the cliffs overlooking Angel Bay.

“Is that an aye?” He sank to the sand and took her with him as he laid down.

“I—I—” Speaking a mistruth to him tore at her. Instead, she tucked one errant lock of his hair behind his ear and said, “I enjoy visiting Angel Bay, just as I enjoy visiting this place. Both bring me comfort, as well as allow me to walk the shoreline in complete seclusion.”

“Hmm, why do I feel as if you’re not quite telling me the whole truth?” He removed his sword belt, set it beside him then with his warm hands on her hips, brought her back against him. Gently, he smoothed one hand along her outer thigh then tucked her top leg snugly between his leather-clad legs, their bodies in complete alignment from head to toe. She wasn’t surprised by his move, or his need to hold her close. Those who were soul bound required touch on a deeper level to most. He skimmed up her arm and swept one finger along her gown’s low-cut neckline. “Can you explain a little more?”

“Nay, I dinnae wish to encourage your pursuit and explaining more will do so.”

“Ha.” He chuckled. “You’re my mate, the one woman I will always pursue, and there is nothing you can say or do to cease that encouragement.”

12 Highlander's_Passion_#2There can be only one…for both of them.

Sent back in time to the year 1210 when their Highlander shifter clan first began, three identical brothers known as the ‘power of three’ must find their mates if they wish to save their future line from extinction.

Fae-blooded Arabel holds the deadly and rare fire-wielder skill, an ability that flares beyond her control when her shifter mate travels to the past and begins closing in on her. Unable to allow an intimacy with him for fear she’ll bring about his death, she enlists the aid of one of her fae kind to compel him, so that no matter how many times they might meet, each instance will be as if the first and all other times forgotten.

Highland warrior shifter Finlay Matheson is on a mission to find his mate and each time he meets Arabel, he falls inescapably in love. If only he didn’t keep forgetting her each time they parted ways. Determined and unwavering in his mission, when he is called to save Arabel’s village from being destroyed by her enemy, he races to aid and protect her.

Battling both love and land, Finlay must find a way for them to be together…and without perishing when they do.

 

Highlander's PassionTeaser1

Exclusive Excerpt:

Finlay wiped his blade clean, sheathed it at his wrist then tucked his traveling bag out of the way next to her trunk under the window.

Before the glass, she combed her hair and secured her pale locks at each side with a silver pin. Done, she set it down and faced him. “Are you ready to break your fast, Finlay?”

“Always. I’m hungry this morning, and for far more than breakfast.” He caught her around the waist and drew her closer. “I have a proposition.”

“That sounds dangerous.” She seized his biceps and held on. “We really need to cease touching.”

“Allow me one kiss before we leave. I’ve yet to taste your lips and I fear I’ll be overcome with the desire to do so and at the worst possible time.” He was quite serious. “I’ve been searching for you for the longest time and I can’t seem to hold back any of my desires, which are growing rapidly the more time we spend together. It’s also best we test your limits well away from your kin.”

“That is a terrible proposition.” Yet a glimmer of hope flared in her eyes. She wanted his kiss, and with a little nudge, he might be able to claim one from her.

“We’ll take things slowly. I promise you I will. This time I’ll be far more careful.” He caressed her sides, roamed down and scooped her bottom. Lifted higher, he pressed his hips against hers. “Say, aye.”

“You are one very pushy bear.”

“Is that an aye?”

“One kiss, then you shall see we are a terrible match and hopefully head straight for the hills.”

“Perfect.” He’d take her agreement for a kiss no matter how it was offered. Gently, he carried her to the bed and laid her across the soft brown fur bedcovering then nudged her knees apart and with his legs between hers, sank down on top of her. “I will never desire any other than you.”

“Must we lie down for this kiss?” She wriggled underneath him, her breath catching.

“Aye, that would be my preference.”

“I feel too hot.” She closed her eyes. “And there are butterflies taking flight in my belly. Can we hurry and be done with this?”

“We can, the moment you look at me.”

She opened her eyes and frowned. “You are completely relentless.”

“Because losing you is something I’ll never survive, not now that I’ve finally found you.” He lowered his head a touch and completed the trap. “After this kiss, I want the right to sleep in your bed, each and every night.”

“You are beyond relentless.”

“If you need me to taper my needs back, just ask.”

“As if you’d listen.” She rolled her eyes and he chuckled.

“You are already coming to know me so well.” Slowly he brushed his mouth over hers, her lips so achingly soft as he joined them together. Playfully, he nipped her lower lip, sucked it into his mouth then licked her tongue. Desire swarmed his senses and as her breasts swelled under his chest, a raw and primal sensation speared through him. He rubbed his body against hers, until his scent surrounded her and hers enveloped him.

“I cannae believe we’re kissing.” Her breath whispered softly across his lips in a teasing caress he hungered for more of. “A little more, Finlay, please.”

Steamy Hot Highlanders. New Release!

Highlander’s Desire – Release Day

Hello everyone, I have another hot Highlander release for you. Highlander’s Desire is book one in my new historical Scottish time travel series called The Matheson Brothers. Expect fierce warriors, mischievous fae, and sexy shifters.

Julie – Reviewer: “This is going to be one exciting series. This story is full of mystery and hot romance.”

HIGHLANDER’S DESIRE
To fulfill the prophecy handed down by her fae ancestor, Isla must first rely on the one man she’s been running from. He is her warrior shifter mate, and he won’t rest until he finds her.

Buy HIGHLANDER’S DESIRE at: Amazon Kindle

11 Highlander's_Desire_#1There can be only one…for both of them.

In the twelfth century, a man named Gilleoin was gifted with the ability to shift into a bear. His clan was called Matheson, and when he mated with a woman carrying faerie blood, they created a line shrouded in secrecy, yet still, far into the future, whispers would abound…

For five long years, Isla Matheson has run from the one man her fae ancestor prophesized would be hers, but now her time for running is done. Her shifter mate is closing in and when he captures her and takes her home to his clan, she can no longer deny either of them. She chooses to merge with him in all ways, and in doing so sets a twelfth century prophecy in motion, one that sends her hurtling back through time to when their clan first began.

Highland warrior shifter Iain Matheson has fallen under his mate’s spell. She’s the one woman he would die to protect, and when a portal opens and takes her from him, he dives in after her. He’ll never allow her to escape him, not even when he becomes embroiled in one of the greatest feuds raging at that time.

Now they have a mission, to save their future line from extinction, to give hope to their people, both in the future and the past.

Highlander's Desire Teaser1

Exclusive Excerpt:

His chosen one looked ahead along the trail and shivered as the breeze picked up. The wind blew her glossy brown locks about her bare shoulders and caused goose-bumps to rise on her arms.

“Here, allow me warm you up.” Iain shrugged his jacket off and held it up for Isla to slip her arms into. She didn’t hesitate to accept his offering. She pushed her hands into the long sleeves of soft black leather and pulled the front edges of his jacket together, covering the white tank top she wore over her jeans.

“Thank you. I wasn’t expecting to go for such a long jaunt this deep into the forest.” She lifted the collar over her nose and breathed deep. “Mmm, you smell good.”

His bear had him leaning in. He buried his nose in her hair, dragged in her sweet vanilla scent. It swirled around and intoxicated him, made him want to pick her up and sling her back over his shoulder all over again. Instead, he gently rubbed her arms then zipped his jacket up and enclosed her completely within its warmth. “Feeling a little less frustrated now?”

“A touch less.” She slanted her head, her gaze questioning. “I have no intention of leaving my clan, even though you’ve found me.”

“Is that why you’ve run from me all these years?”

“My clan’s numbers are dwindling. There are far fewer mated pairs than ever before and when I discovered you weren’t from my clan, I’d never felt such sorrow. I’ve let them down.”

“So by running, you decided our fate before you’d even given me a chance to prove myself.” He stroked a finger under her chin and his bear rumbled in delight at the sheer softness of her skin—so creamy and smooth. “I would never keep you from your kin, Isla, nor do I ever intend to in the future. There must be give and take between mates, and more so between you and I since we come from separate clans.”

“You’re serious?” Her tone held disbelief. “You won’t insist I leave my people to join with you?” She inched closer, touching the tips of her boots to his. Those long legs of hers, encased in dark blue denim, showcased every delectable curve from her pert bottom to her knee-high leather boots that hugged her slim calves.

“That’s right.”

“Then I’m free to go?”

“You’re free to leave whenever you wish, but if you go, then I go with you.”
