A storm is brewing in the Highlands, and there is new Highland Romance coming your way soon! It’s getting closer to the release date of Highland Storm, Book 1 in my new Highland Chronicles Series. The book releases on Sept. 19th, which is less than 2 weeks away.
If you’ve been following some of my series, you will realize that the heroes in this 4 book collection are all sons of some of my past heroes.
The next three books in the series are about the sons of those crazy Highlanders from my MadMan MacKeefe Series. Ethan (Book 2) is the superstitious but very handsome son of Onyx. Book 3 will feature the sword-wielding Logan, son of Aidan. And the last book of the series highlights Caleb, son of Ian. Caleb is the smallest of the men but turning out to be my favorite because I assure you he will bring a smile to your face. (These books are stand-alones and can be read without knowledge of the previous books about the mens’ fathers.)
Have you pre-ordered Highland Storm yet? It is only 99 cents but this is a special price that will only last until a few days after release before the price goes up to $3.99. Don’t take a chance of missing this great deal. Preorder it today and it’ll be delivered right to your e-reader on release day for a nice surprise.

I’ve been busy in my writing hammock, finishing up another book right now called Keeper of the Flame. You’ll see the sorcerer, Orrick in Highland Storm, and I’m sure you remember him from Lord of the Blade and several of my other stories. Well, he is getting his own book and what a book it is! I’ll be telling you more about that soon as well as showing you the awesome cover, but for now, take advantage of the special price on Highland Storm and pre-order your copy while you still can!
Lord Corbett Blake is determined to bring honor back to his family name. King Edward III has told him he needs to marry, or lose his lands and title. Corbett’s late father made the mistake of marrying a commoner, and because of this, it is up to Corbett to make things right.
Now he searches for the perfect lady, but his reputation proceeds him. Three times he has lost future brides to death before they ever reached the altar. Some say he is the messenger of death himself, with his pet raven perched upon his shoulder. But now, he searches for the troubled girl with the green eyes, who calls out to him for help every night in his sleep.
Devon has been raised in secret, hidden inside the walls of the monastery for the last eighteen years. Now, the black-hearted Lord of Steepleton has discovered her. She is excited at first when she hears he will be bringing her to the castle, that is, until she realizes he wants her to be nothing more than his servant.
Deception and secrets are many within the walls of Blake Castle, but they can’t hold a candle to the passion that stirs between Corbett and his servant, Devon – a woman who can destroy everything he is, with the power of just one kiss.
