Highlander’s Claim, The Matheson Warriors #2

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.

NEW RELEASE – Billionaire Bodyguard Fling, a HOT Friends-to-Lovers Romance.

 

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.)

 

Available at: Amazon USA | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Also available at: Nook | iBooks | Kobo


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?”

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.”

As the Laird of Carron Castle, Coll MacKenzie has agreed to wed the daughter of his clan’s allied chief in order to strengthen their bonds, only when he returns home after months away, it’s to discover a woman ensconced within his household who could so easily shatter all his well devised plans. Fae-blooded Fiona is the only woman who’s ever challenged him in ways that spoke to his very heart, and even though she holds the other half of his soul, he must still turn her away. His clan’s future depends upon it.

Fiona has always been drawn to Coll’s strength and courage, has always held the secret of his fae blood close to her heart, but now she’s discovered they’re soul bound, she has no intention of allowing him to turn her away. It’s time to enforce the mated hunt, a chase all her fae kind long to begin.

Theirs is a battle of the very heart and soul, of desire flaring fierce and strong, and of a hunt across the beautiful wilds of Scotland during a time of war.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

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.

17 Highlander's_Bride_#1One soul bound mate…one quest to find her.

Year 1210, Scottish Highlands.

Kidnapped as a wee lass by a fierce Highland chief, Kyla MacKenzie has been raised for the past twenty years as the chief’s foster daughter, the ruthless chief a man who threatened to kill her parents should she ever speak the truth about her abduction. The chief covets her fae blood and when she’s asked to tend to a captured enemy warrior and discovers they hold a soul bond, all her secrets could be exposed and her parents’ lives endangered.

Warrior Ronan Matheson discovers his chosen one is the foster daughter of his clan’s greatest enemy, a lass he’s been searching for his entire life, although when his fellow warriors come to his rescue and he escapes from within the enemy’s walls, he must then turn around and find a way to get back in, and all without his actual identity being discovered. It’s time to bind his chosen one to him, and for her to learn all about her true clan.

Theirs is a battle of lost love, of passion flaring hot and strong, and of a journey to bridge the gap between two warring clans.

Highlander's Bride Graphic 2

 

Exclusive Excerpt:

For the past month since Ronan’s escape from Carron Castle’s dungeons all he’d wished to do was heal then ensure an adequate disguise so he might return to Kyla without anyone discovering his true identity. He longed to see the fiery spark in her blue eyes. She was spectacular, mesmerizing, a true Scottish lass with the fire of the fae in her blood. Aye, no more would he allow his mate to deny their bond.

Along the trail, he snuck then halted as up ahead splashing trickled toward him.

With nary a noise, he stepped out from amongst the thick trees encircling a clearing. Sunshine rippled across the glistening surface of a perfectly round pool holding his enticing siren within.

Scooping water at her sides, Kyla floated on her back, her waist-length locks splaying out like a lily pad of golden-red, her dainty face upturned and eyes closed. The water swelled around her, cascaded over her bare legs and belly. Her full breasts rose above the surface and—hell. He hadn’t expected to find her without a stitch of clothing on.

He should turn away, give her the privacy she desired, only doing so right now was impossible. Her lips, softly parted, drew his gaze even though every curved inch of her remained on glorious display. His chosen one had been raised far away from her true clan, and now his battle to capture and contain his fiery mate had begun, a battle he’d never walk away from.

Today, she’d learn that the fae never gave up on one of their own.

He lowered his satchel to the ground, toed off his boots and unbelted his sword. ’Twas time for his mate to see he was back and wasn’t leaving without her, not one more time. At the edge of the pool, he planted his hands on his hips, determination spurring him on. “Kyla.”

Water splashed and his enticing siren gasped and dunked under the surface. She came back up spluttering, her beautiful blue eyes alight. “Coll? What are you—” She scrubbed her knuckles into her eyes then blinked. “Nay, you’re no’ Coll. Who are you?”

“Rand MacKenzie, my lady, at your service.”

For readers who love Scottish Highlanders, kisses and faerie legends, HIGHLANDER’S KISS is the first book in the tantalizing Clan Matheson series. Tavish is a fierce warrior protector and Julia is his soul bound mate, and when these two come together, adventure and passion erupts.

Also available at: Nook, ibooks, Kobo

Paperback: Amazon

14 Highlander's_Kiss_#1There can be only one…for both of them.

Fae-blooded Julia holds the ability to read another’s aura and determine their true intent. Her skill has only ever aided her in life, until the day when their neighboring enemy clan arrive to discuss a marriage of alliance between her and their chief’s son. She misjudges their enemy’s intent and all goes horribly wrong. Her parents are captured and imprisoned and now she must find a way to free them. Only now standing in her path is a fiercely protective warrior who has traveled from the future into the past, a man who insists they are soul bound, and a man whose aura shows no sign of such a bond. She is wary, yet still, she can’t deny how much he stirs her deep within.

Highland warrior shifter Tavish Matheson has traveled through time to find the woman his soul demands is his, yet convincing her will be a mission all unto itself. When Julia is kidnapped by the enemy while on a mission to save her parents, he sets out in fierce pursuit. All he desires is to keep her close, rescue her parents, and most of all, to offer her his love.

He’s a warrior who will not be denied. She’s a lass devoted to her kin.

Highlander's Kiss teaser 2

Exclusive Excerpt:

“I’m sorry, but Cherub’s here to collect me and I must go.” Julia wrapped one hand around Tavish’s forearm and the blue haze of frustration in his aura receded. “You must believe me when I say we’re no’ mated.”

“A mated male knows when he meets his chosen one.” A look of longing flashed across his face as he lifted a lock of her hair and curled it around his finger. “Your hair is so soft and silky, and you look beautiful in your gown.”

“And you are a charmer with your touching words.” She let go of him and walked from the bathroom, through his chamber and out his open bedroom door. The passageway, lit with bright overhead lighting led toward a stairwell at the far end. She strode along the burgundy and blue runner as Tavish jogged in beside her.

“Julia, I don’t need the full moon to guide me to my chosen one, not when being near you tells me all I need to know. I’ve also no idea why our auras aren’t tugging toward each other’s as you’ve said, but that matters little to me.” He lifted a challenging brow. “Do you not feel anything toward me?”

“I dinnae have the right to speak of it if I do.” He was taken, and she would never come between a soul bound pair.

“That’s not what I asked.” He caught her hand, slowed her step then pressed her back against the wall. Head dipped, he touched his nose to hers, and murmured, “My desire for you is growing, in leaps and bounds. All I want to do is hold you, kiss you, to discover everything there is to learn about you.”

“The only thing you need to learn is that I’m not yours.” She fluttered a hand over her racing heartbeat. Those words sounded wrong even as she uttered them and they clashed inside her, made her cringe. “Let me go, Tavish.”

“That is still the wrong answer.” Smoothly, he slid his hand under her hair and palmed the bare skin of her nape, his gaze moving over the sensitive area where her shoulder and neck met. He rubbed one thumb over the spot. “I want to bite you, to mark you as mine, just as those mated pairs in my clan do.”

“’Tis an anomaly for sure.” She touched his neck in return, right over his thumping pulse point.

“It’s no anomaly, but the early stages of the bond taking form.” He eased closer, brushed his nose through her hair and nuzzled her neck. “Since the moment we met, I’ve struggled to let you out of my sight. When you walked into the bathroom and away from me, all I wanted to do was tear that door down so we were no longer separated. Now I’m about to take you downstairs to Cherub and Kirk when it’s the last thing I want to do. You are mine.”
