Love Regency Romance? #HistRom

Happy July! Hope you're having a wonderful summer so far. I’m super excited to share today’s release, Never Second Guess a Lord, book one in my brand-new Second-time Brides series. For those of you who enjoy steamy Regency Romance, I hope you’ll give it a go. Such fun characters!

Finally free of a cruel and loveless marriage, wealthy widower Lady Prudence Barrington is determined to make her own way without remarrying. What she does not expect upon arriving at her sister’s castle in Scotland is crossing paths with a duke whose name she once slandered for his flirtatious ways. Or that her sister intends to make a match of them. 

When Jacob, the Duke of Argyll, learns coldhearted Lady Barrington will be visiting MacLauchlin Castle, he is eager to confront her and perhaps make amends. Forgive the rumors she once spread about him. Help her find her way free of whom she became when married to her late husband, then move on. Or so he thinks until he discovers an interesting, passionate woman underneath her uppity façade. 

Friendship eventually turns to scandalous desire, but nothing is as easy as it seems. Not when Prudence refuses marriage but succumbs to love for the first time. A love that is soon threatened when Jacob keeps something from her that could very well end all they find together.

Ruled by the gods of old, Viking dragon king Ulrik Sigdir knows the only way to avoid war is to ensure his longtime barbarian rival receives his prize.

Sweeping Celtic Romance. #mustread


It’s that time! A Celtic Longing, book three in my new MacLomain Series: Irish Roots, is now available. This one had a few surprises I didn’t see coming. Love that! If you haven’t had a chance to check out this series yet, I recommend starting with book one, A Celtic Memory, or The Unknown Kings, a free prelude that follows the heroes. 


About the Book 

What happens when the man you’re determined to hate is the only man you ever truly loved? 

Shannon has long dreaded her destiny to help a medieval Irish king save his country. Moreover, the risk of falling in love again. So when she ends up at her new home in New Hampshire under the watchful eye of Liam, King of Meath, a medieval king who traveled through time to protect her, she chooses to dislike him from the onset. Avoid him even though she’s drawn to him. Especially when she’s plagued with an unexplainable longing and regret that makes no sense. Feelings she suspects have to do with him and a connection they have yet to remember. 

King Liam will keep Shannon safe from the enemy if it’s the last thing he does. Nothing more. He’s not one to desire one lass when he can enjoy many. Yet there’s something about her. A draw he cannot ignore. A pull that only grows stronger when she’s stricken with a longing only he can free her from when they travel back in time together. 

Thrust on a magical journey rife with revelations, Liam and Shannon discover more than they bargained for. Heartbreaking truths from the distant past that will change everything. An enemy who influenced their lives in unforeseen ways. Will they be able to overcome the odds and make things right again? Or will their nemesis remain one step ahead of them and the fate of Ireland doomed?

Magic in Medieval Ireland. #amreading

It’s that time! The second book in The MacLomain Series: Irish Roots has arrived. I loved writing Declán and Riona’s story, A Celtic Secret. Lots of romance, intrigue, and action!

About the Book

What happens when you fall for not one enemy but two? 

Riona has long known she’s destined to help a medieval Irish king save his country. What she does not anticipate is being torn between two enemy kings. Moreover, that when she travels back in time, she will end up in the rival Kingdom of Munster, at the whims of both men. Warrior kings determined to make her theirs even if it means sharing. 

King Declán of Leinster has but one goal. Not to share Riona but to discover the secret she keeps from him so he can figure out his next step. Or so he thinks until she joins him on enemy land and chooses to stay rather than flee. Until he realizes her adventuresome, curious nature will land her in the last position she expects. Queen of Munster and enemy to her sisters. 

Determined to free her from a prison of her own making, Declán steals her away, only for them to wind up on a magical journey born of a secret he never saw coming. One fraught with not just forbidden passion but a prophecy that seems impossible to fulfill. Worse still, a wicked love triangle that cannot be avoided. One that could very well mean war and Ireland’s ruin. 


“RUN,” HE ROARED. “Come to me before ‘tis too late!”

As always, she wore a long blue dress and ran into a dimly lit forest before a large set of castle doors appeared. Beckoned her. Called to her every bit as much as the man without a face. The stranger who had haunted her day after day. Year after year. Sometimes she loved him. Sometimes she hated him.

But she always needed to get to him.

The door.

What lay beyond.

She reached for one of the large handles. Tried to wrap her hand around it but somehow never got close enough. No matter how hard she tried, the door seemed further and further away.

Until it didn’t. 

A warm glowing light sparked to life inside, and she, at long last, clasped the cool handle and opened the door only to stop short. She didn’t stand at the threshold of a castle but at the edge of a cliff, looking down on a cave entrance. Her heart lurched into her throat at the dizzying drop.

The warm light faded.

Darkness fell.

“Hurry.” His voice sounded so sinister now it sent chills down her spine. “Come outside now!”

However frightened, she felt compelled to listen.

Go to him.

Be with him.

So she stepped over the edge of the cliff only to jolt awake when someone yanked her back.

A Hauntingly Good Time! #HistoricalRomance

Happy ‘almost’ All Hallows’ Eve! I’m thrilled to share that my new release Harrowing Hall is now available in fabulous multi-author collection A Midnight Requiem. Harrowing Hall follows Blake and Maude, who helped bring together the couple in To Tame the Lyon (The Lyon’s Den series). Since then, I’ve been dying to tell their love story. 

I haven’t had this much fun writing a tale in a while. What a pair! Blake’s a Scottish viscount, and Maude’s a commoner, but they didn’t let status stand in their way. In fact, they didn’t let much stand in their way of falling in love and figuring out the mystery of Harrowing Hall, a notoriously haunted hallway in MacLauchlin Castle. 

About Harrowing Hall

From the moment Maude arrives at her beloved Lord MacLauchlin’s castle, odd things begin to happen. Haunting bagpipes play that only she hears. A hallway calls to her. An old portrait seems familiar. She even feels an unexplainable sense of belonging. One that cannot be explained until the midnight hour of All Saints’ Eve when she and her love discover something unbelievable. A shocking secret about Harrowing Hall that will change everything. Will it be for the better, though? Or are some truths best left alone?

About A Midnight Requiem

When doors creak in darkened chambers and eerie sounds echo through the corridors. When the distant sounds of church bells signal the midnight hour — that is the time when spirits dwell, singing their spectral requiem for lost loves and beckoning the living with ghostly fingers… join us, join us….

Welcome to A Midnight Requiem: The Ghostly Hour! 

Love haunted houses, ghostly graveyards, and spooky fun? Sixteen of your favorite historical romance authors have come together to bring you a collection of ghastly delight and spectral passion. Enjoy haunting love stories that will have you reading them again… and again.

Love Time Travel Fantasy Romance? #mustread

It’s official! The first book in my new MacLomain Series: Irish Roots has finally arrived! I loved spending time with Cian and Madison and hope you do too. Their story definitely threw some twists at me I didn't see coming.


She forgot something important. He knows what it is...


The moment Madison arrives at the old Colonial in New Hampshire, she knows her past and future are about to merge. The demons she runs from are drawing closer. Yet thanks to a home with an ancient oak tree and a Stonehenge nearby, she might, at last, find sanctuary. Perhaps even clarity about an elusive memory that’s haunted her for as long as she can remember. Or so she thinks until a handsome Irishman shows up at her door and reveals things she could never have anticipated.  

When Cian, Gaelic King of the Connacht, hears Madison’s calls across time, he has no choice but to go to her. After all, he carries the memory she long forgot. One that begins what will eventually be considered folklore if all goes as it should. A memory foreseen by the gods of old that needs to play out if Ireland is to remain intact for generations to come. Even if it means sacrificing Madison for the greater good. Something he thinks will be easy until he meets her and realizes his heart will not be so easily swayed to do what’s right for his country.


Thrust together on a passionate, magical adventure that brings the reader back to a time when the five original Celtic tribes ruled Ireland, expect twists and turns. Joy and heartache. Good versus evil. More than ever, though, expect great love and loss. Endings, new beginnings, and a new take on what really happened over a thousand years ago on the Emerald Isle. More importantly…how it ensured Scotland’s MacLomain Clan would continue on.

Love Fairytale Retellings? #UrbanFantasy #PNR

Hello, all! Fun news. My brand new story Loki’s Heart is now available in Limited Time Edition Once Upon an Ever After. A spin-off from my Viking Ancestors: Forged in Fire series, Loki’s Heart features (you guessed it) the Norse god Loki and the feisty fire demon seer who stole his heart. Here’s what you can expect from this twisted fairytale retelling…


The last thing Revna expects is to fall for a deity like Loki. Or that she will end up keeping half his heart safe from the evil Queen Yrsa, a succubus intent on using his divine energy to become the most powerful seer of them all. 

Determined to end their enemy before it’s too late, Revna and Loki embark on a journey with seven dwarf seers, only to discover the real reason behind their attraction to one another. A passionate draw that might be Revna’s last hope when she’s thrust into a deep, dark sleep before their nemesis is defeated.
