Highlander #Giveaway Hop


If you are here for the Fall into Romance blog hop, click here , but I hope you'll check out the Highlander Giveaway Hop too.

As many of you know, I love Scotland and Scottish things. I enjoy reading and writing Scottish inspired tales. And if there is a paranormal or fantasy element included, all the better. So, for the Highlander Giveaway Hop, I'm featuring the first two books in the Highland Gardens series.

The Scottish Highlands—a place where faeries and brownies and other fae creatures dance through time. On occasion, so do mere mortals.


Just Beyond the Garden Gate - Book 1

and Barnes&Noble.
Determined to regain her royal status, a banished faerie princess accepts a challenge from the High-Queen of the Fae to unite an unlikely couple while the clan brownie attempts to thwart her.

Passion ignites when a faerie-shove propels burned-out business consultant Laurie Bernard through the garden gate, back through time, and into the embrace of Patrick MacLachlan. The arrogant clan chief doesn’t know what to make of the lass in his arms, especially when he recognizes the brooch she wears as the one his stepmother wore when she and his father disappeared.

With the fae interfering at every opportunity, the couple must learn to trust one another while they battle an enemy clan, expose a traitor within their midst and discover the true fate of the missing parents. Can they learn the most important truth—love transcends time?


Just Once in a Verra Blue Moon - Book 2

E-book:

and Barnes&Noble.

Trade Paperback:

What happens when a twenty-first century business executive is expected to fulfill a prophecy given at the birth of a sixteenth-century seer? Of course, he must raise his sword in her defense.

Believing women only want him for his wealth, Finn MacIntyre doesn't trust any woman to love him. When, during Scottish Highland games, faerie magic sends him back in time to avenge the brutal abduction of his time-traveling cousin, he learns he's the subject of a fae prophecy.

Elspeth MacLachlan, the beloved clan seer, is betrothed to a man she dislikes and dreams of the man prophesized at her birth, only to find him in the most unexpected place—facedown in the mud.

With the help of fae allies, they must overcome the treachery set to destroy them to claim a love that transcends time.

  3. I would love to experience Europe most likely but I guess it would have to be around Jane Austen era. But even then it would be difficult to be a woman with a strong mind.

    1. Interesting, Daniel. I've not thought about Egypt in a while, but I'd love to hear more about the history. I did a report on the area when in grade school. I think I should take another look. Thanks for the reminder.

  17. If you could travel back in time to any place, to where and to what year would you go? Hmmm good question would deff be before the 13th Century. Now that I know I am part Welsh I think I would visit there. Learn as much as I could from my family.

    1. That sounds good, Kimi! I'd also like to visit current day Wales. :)

  18. I Would travel to 1744 Scotland right before Culloden and would have a long talk with Bonnie Prince Charlie to talk some sense into that Stewart and hopefully change the course of history. It's a nice fantasy anyhow to think I could help the slaughter of all so many and as it makes me sad to even think of it as that ended all the clans and if you get me talking about clearances I will cry. It is the time I would go to to see if I have to power to reverse history, I am a big fan of Scottish historical romance, my clan is MacRae its seat is Eilean Donan Castle though they had no chief and fought under MacKensie colors. Of course I would love to meet my Scottish ancestors as well!

  21. I would like to travel back to Victorian Scotland and Britain; during the mid-1800's. To see the countryside of both countries before modern roads and buildings and to see the inventions that we take for granted today first come into existence. Also be able to chat with Jane Austen and other classic authors.
