I wanted to share with my valued readers and followers of my blog, that on Oct 15th Soul Mate Publishing will release my next novel, HER HIGHLANDER’S PROMISE. The finishing touches are being put on the book and we have a wonderful cover, designed by the talented Christy Caughie, which I am anxiously waiting the official go-ahead to share. The book will also be available for pre-order and I will let you know when that happens.

Set in the Scottish Highlands, 1320, this  sweet, but sensual tale  revolves around, Laurel MacClay’s, coming of age, the wonders of first love, and the fulfilment of her father’s deathbed decree, that she become lairdess of her beloved Highland clan. But her guardians–her father’s cousin and his vindictive, power-hungry wife– have other plans, ones that include a betrothal to their arrogant,  spineless, self-centred son and a devious plot that puts Laurel’s life in jeopardy.

In this Cinderella-type romance, Laurel endures  hardship and a strict upbringing,  bidding her time until her eighteenth birthday, the day she will assume her birthright and is no longer  forced to answer to her guardians. She prays for the return of Blair Cameron, a dashing young man who captured her heart when they met at her father’s funeral and  promised to marry her.   Determined to remain in control of the clan, her cousin Murray ignores the fact that his wife, Deirdre, dabbles in witchcraft,  has never shown Laurel any compassion, and punishes  who those  who defy her or tries to intervene.

When Laurel’s betrothal to her cousin Allan is announced and she refuses to marry him, Deirdre, locks her in her chamber and unleashes a plot that will ensure her demands are met and her current  position as chatelaine will not be threatened.

Can love conquer all or will evil triumph? Can Blair not only help Laurel expose Deidre’s malicious intent, but also prove she was responsible for the mysterious and untimely deaths of Laurel’s  parents? Can he gather the proof he needs and return in time to stop the wedding and save Laurel’s life?  Those questions will be answered, along with some interesting and unexpected twist in the plot when Her Highlander’s Promise is released.

About B.J. Scott

With a passion for history and romance, I always have several exciting works in progress. Each manuscript offers a blend of passion, adventure and where appropriate, a dab of comic relief. Carefully researched historical facts are woven into the storyline, providing a backdrop from which steamy romance, gripping plots and vivid characters—dashing alpha heroes and resourceful, beguiling heroines you can’t help but admire—spring to life. I also write contemporary, paranormal, time travel and romantic suspense. After several years in the nursing and child and youth work fields, I met and married my knight in shinning armor and he whisked me away to his castle by the sea. Actually, it is a century old home in a small town in SW Ontario, Canada, on the shore of Lake Erie, where we reside with our four dogs and a cat. While born in Canada, my ancestors were from Scotland, Ireland and England. Perhaps the reason for my fascination with anything Celtic. In the fourth grade, I discovered the work of C.S Lewis, and was hooked on books. While I dabbled in writing for many years, I began to pursue my writing dream in earnest when I completed the first book in my Fraser Brother Trilogy, Highland Legacy. Like all authors the road to publication was not smooth and there is always something new to learn. When I got my first contract, I was thrilled and grateful to my husband, family and friends for their support. One book spawned three and the Trilogy was born. Thanks to the readers. Without you there would be no need for authors or new books. When I am not writing, working at my childcare job or on my small business making had braided Celtic jewelry, Beaded book thongs and assorted other swag and gift idea, you will find me reading, camping or antique hunting. I am a PAN member of Romance Writers of America, World Romance Writers, Celtic Heart Romance Writers, Savvy Authors and several writer critique groups. I am also a proud member of the Clan Scott Society
