The Highlander’s Inconvenient Bride is Shortlisted!!

I’m thrilled to announce that my ‘A Highland Feuding’ story – THE HIGHLANDER’S INCONVENIENT BRIDE – is shortlisted for the Liberta Shorter Novel category of the Romantic Novelists Association (UK)’s Romance of the Year award!!

The winners will be announced on Monday, March 7th from London! Wish me luck!

Tempted by Her Viking Enemy is a Winner!

I’m so excited to announce that my book, TEMPTED BY HER VIKING ENEMY, won the Best Historical Romance category in the New Jersey Romance Writers’ Golden Leaf contest!

Part of the 5-book Sons of Sigurd series, TEMPTED tells the story of Sigurd’s eldest son who seeks out the truth of his father’s murder and his family’s destruction. Following clues discovered by his brothers, Brand Sigurdsson travels to Caithness (northeastern Scotland) to find the one behind the traitorous plot — and finds redemption and resolution. . . and love there.

Each story in the series stand alone but you’ll want to read all of them – by Michelle Willingham, Harper St. George, Michelle Styles, Jenni Fletcher and moi! It was an amazing experience collaborating with those talented authors and I’m glad I got the chance to work with them.

You can find links to all of them here.

This is at a special price through October – along with some of my favorite authors’ spooky historical romances – Go here to find them all!
