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.
