I got an exciting email a few months back inviting me, as a long-time customer of Woman Within plus sized clothing, to participate in their ‘real women’ campaign! Their plan is to feature women who actually wear their clothing and that is me! I posted informal photos on my Facebook page when the photo shoot happened in February and I have to say it was so much fun and such a fun day being treated like a VIP.
The #EveryBodyIsBeautiful campaign went live today! I hope you’ll stop over and take a look at the other talented and wonderful women who are featured – and thanks to Woman Within for such an opportunity!
Historical romances set in the Scottish Highlands are favorites of readers (and of mine!) so I’ve teamed up with FIVE other bestselling, award-winning authors to start the Highland Dream Weavers. As our logo say – we are the weavers of dreams, purveyors of stories and lovers of the Highlands! I’m thrilled to be in this group along with Amy Jarecki, Tarah Scott, Carmen Caine, Sue-Ellen Welfonder and Violetta Rand, all very talented authors and nice people, too.
We’ll be posting previews of upcoming books, sharing stories of travels to Scotland, revealing covers, and chatting about all things Scottish and Highlands so I hope you’ll check out our new website and join our Facebook group. If you visit and LIKE our group, you’re in the running for one of two gift cards (a $30 and a $60) to the retailer of your choice.
So, come on over, share some photos of Highlanders or Scotland, ask questions or chat about Scottish romances…we’d love to see you there!
So, I’ll be having 2 books released within weeks of each other and I wanted to share the Harlequin Historical cover with you all — yes, it’s on my FB page but here it is for you all!!

Three Timeless Loves: A Scottish Time Travel Romance Boxed Set
Available for a limited time and for 99¢ (US)!
From sweet to sizzling, these three Scottish time travel romances celebrate the magic of love that transcends time.
THE LAST HIGHLANDER
by Claire Delacroix (originally published under the pseudonym Claire Cross)
Scotland, 1314: After the Scots reclaim Edinburgh Castle, Alasdair MacAuley only wants to celebrate. But the revels are interrupted by an old crone who claims the castle’s true owner is the legendary witch Morgaine le Fee. Dared by his fellow warriors to go meet the witch, Alasdair heads down a flight of stairs — and tumbles right into another century…
Scotland, 1998: American Morgan Lafayette is in Scotland to enjoy the history, not to ogle men in kilts. So when she stumbles upon a brawny man in a kilt, she is less than enthralled. She is certain he’s drunk for he claims Morgan is a powerful sorceress who has brought him to her magical kingdom! Despite her reluctance, she is intensely drawn to this handsome Highlander and the mystery surrounding him, a mystery that has the power to alter history—and her heart—forever…
“A delight! The taste…will linger on your tongue!”—The Toronto Star
HIGHLAND BOUND TRILOGY–BEHIND THE PLAID
by Eliza Knight
He dominated her mind. She possessed his soul.
Emma Gordon escapes from a troubling marriage in which she’s completely lost sight of who she is. Desperate for independence, she leaves her husband while on a trip in the Scottish Highlands. Only thing is, she ends up hurled back in time to the 16th Century Castle Gealach and headlong into the arms of the handsome, intimidating Laird Logan Grant. Thrust into a world filled with treachery, danger and intensity she must summon the courage to find her way.
Logan is tormented by a dark past and harbors a secret that could tear his country apart. He’s consumed with the need for control which wars with his longing for harmony. Unable to resist Emma’s beauty and spirit and the calm that she invokes, Logan confesses he desires her–but only on his terms. He promises erotic encounters that will change them both forever, and quench their overwhelming desire.
Despite her own reservations, Emma longs to get close to the mysterious laird, even while she is desperate to return to her own era. She agrees to Logan’s proposal to satisfy her curiosity, but in the end embarks on a daring, passionate affair that rocks her to the very core. Secrets are uncovered, souls bared, spirits transformed. Neither of them can hide behind the plaid.
This is the first book in the Highland Bound Trilogy and is intended for mature audiences only.
“Wickedly sinful, arousingly erotic, and delightfully delicious Logan is the stuff that naughty Highlander dreams are made of.” ~Night Owl Romance Top Pick
A LOVE THROUGH TIME ~ Book 1 of the MacKendimen Trilogy
by Terri Brisbin
An archway in time…
A man in search of his future in the past…
A woman who holds the key…
Maggie Hobbs has had enough of controlling men in her life. Breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, she heads to Scotland for her summer vacation, hoping to put it all behind her—though she never dreams how far behind her it will go! During a stop at a clan ceilidh, Maggie meets the man who should be heir to the Clan MacKendimen—one whose father turned his back on his heritage for a new life in America. And then Fate steps in to throw her back to a time when men controlled everything!
Alex MacKendimen returns to his father’s lands and discovers a life that could have been his. With the emptiness of his life staring back at him, he wished for another chance to find happiness and finds himself catapulted to the past – as he and a beautiful stranger face dangers together in medieval Scotland.
Thrown together by Fate, Maggie and Alex face their greatest fears and struggle to find a way home while falling in love. Will they make it out of the past or be forced to survive far way from everyone and all they know?
“Alex and Maggie, both exceptionally well-drawn adult characters, make this appealing adventure special.” — Publishers Weekly
