Staying Home

During this time of Covid, I am staying home as much as possible. Trips to the grocery store and post office have become my “getting out.” My husband and I masked up and went to Walmart to buy my latest book. It was a bit unnerving, but it was a thrill to see Highland Conquest on the shelves!

Stay safe, everyone! Heather

A New Highland Romance Series!

The first book in my new Highland Roses School series, A ROSE IN THE HIGHLANDS, released on September, 24 2018! Readers and I celebrated with a fabulous Release Tea Party with nine other authors. We even had a surprise visit from Queen Catherine de Braganza, the Portuguese princess who married English King Charles II in the mid 1600’s and brought tea to England.

Queen Catherine will appear in Book #2, A PROTECTOR IN THE HIGHLANDS (previously titled A Rose with Thorns), which will be released in December 2018, in time for a mini-vacation to the rolling Highland hills during the hectic holiday season.

I’m very excited about this series, because it ultimately has to do with empowering women in a time when they had very little power.

At the Highland Roses School, in the politically rebellious 1680s, ladies learn the crucial skills of reading, writing, pouring a proper tea and killing an attacker with a hair spike in ten seconds. At a time when ladies have few rights, Evelyn and Scarlet Worthington, along with the brawny Highlanders who fall in love with them, run a school for ladies to teach them all the skills needed to stay elegant, educated and alive.

Untamed Hearts

A Highland Hearts long novella that follows TANGLED HEARTS – released 4/21/14!

Will Wyatt has always played the part of pirate, but now he’s a fish out of water in the Highlands of Scotland. With a bounty on his head, he’s laying low by helping his sister and a troop of abandoned children journey to a new home. He didn’t count on a spunky Highland lass stealing his breath after he steals a kiss.

Jonet Montgomery has longed for a chivalrous knight her whole young life. Instead she found herself wed to a cheating scoundrel and left a widow. Giving up on love, Jonet turned to helping the orphaned children of her clan, but when a lusty, silver-tongued rogue opens a crack in Jonet’s routine life, she’s tempted by his offer to taste adventure of the most pleasurable kind.

Will’s heart of gold shines through despite his infamous past, making Jonet risk her reputation once again. But can she possibly be enough woman to keep this sexy pirate from straying? With her past embarrassment haunting her, she risks more than just her reputation this time. She risks her heart.
