He saw her and knew he had to wed her...
She saw him and knew she never could.



James Menzies was known as the Marbhaiche , the most feared warrior in the Highlands- and he'd just discovered he had a sister, Maddie. While visiting and getting to know her, he met Katie, Maddie's sister by marriage.

And just as he never knew he wanted a sister until he met Maddie, James never knew he wanted to marry until he saw Katie.


Katie Ramsay had had a difficult year. Surviving a violent assault perpetrated by Maddie's brothers, Katie was learning how to live her life without the security she once knew. The veil of innocence was brutally lifted from her, leaving her empty and scared. All of her dreams, all of her heart's desires, would never be realized.

Who would love her after her assault?
She was not the same woman she used to be.
She felt broken.

Until she met James.

When she first set her eyes on him, her heart fluttered and her soul warmed...until she remembered that she was not worthy of a man like him.

But James didn't see her as she saw herself.

Slowly, the man who never knew he needed love, fell in love with a woman who never believed she could be loved.

Not everyone shared the joy of their blossoming romance. A pact entered into before James was born, would force the Highlands to divide and cause...

A Highland war.

When the rival laird kidnaps Katie, could James save her from the madman who wanted the pact enforced, and would kill her to achieve that?

Or would the love he just found with Katie be ruthlessly taken from him and then be forced to marry another?


The Highlander Who Loved Me is a spin-off novel readers voted for, that follows The Highlander Who Saved Me . Both novels are stand-alone, however, it's strongly recommended that The Highlander Who Saved Me be read first.

Please note, The Highlander Who Loved Me is a full-length novel at nearly 60,000 words (ends at 69%). The page count estimated by Amazon includes excerpts of my three other novels. Thus, not all of the pages in the page count, are for this full-length novel.


Advisory:

This book is not intended for readers under 18 years of age. This book is a bit more violent than my others. Additionally, this novel deals with a sensitive subject matter- sexual assault. While rape is mentioned, there are no active scenes of the act. The subject matter is discussed, and the heroine experiences brief flashbacks, but they are not descriptive.

Connor Ramsay is out for blood. Revenge is ripe on his tongue, and he means to have it. His younger sister was raped by an English bastard, and he was going to make him pay even if it meant he had to execute his vengeance on the miscreant's younger, innocent sister. An eye for an eye was the way he saw it.

Madeleine Wynton lived her life simply. She had her father and three older brothers, whom she loved dearly. Her life was calm, and while it may seem boring to others, it satisfied her and gave her purpose. She aspired to enter the abbey where she would further serve others. A life of service would surely save her and her mother’s souls from purgatory, wouldn’t it? That was the plan, that is, until she was kidnapped for ransom. Luck wasn't always on her side, but fortunately for her that day, it was. A rather large, intimidating, and surly Highlander came to her rescue. He took her back to the Highlands, promising to send word to her father that she was safe and ready to return home. The more time she spent with Connor and his family, though, the more she began to question everything she always held as truth.

Connor was going to make the English reprobates pay, and not even those wide innocent eyes resting above that sharp tongue of Maddie's, was going to make him abandon his intentions. He was not only sending word to Maddie’s father in the form of a ransom, but he also intended to seduce the Englishwoman into his bed. The revenge would taste sweeter if she willingly gave herself to him. Regrettably, Connor didn’t anticipate falling for Maddie’s stubbornness, wit, or charm. It was a dilemma further complicated by his need to keep her safe from one man who wanted to kidnap Maddie for ransom, and another who bought her from her father. Connor needed to keep his secret if he wanted to spend his life with Maddie. Secrets have a way of coming to light no matter how hard you try to keep them in the dark, and his will have everyone questioning the life they thought they knew.

Can the love Connor and Maddie nurtured on a net of lies survive the fall when the deceit unravels, or will their love be a casualty of vengeance?

The Highlander Who Saved Me is a stand-alone historical romance novel that will have you holding on through twists and turns. Don’t forget to look for The Highlander Who Loved Me, released December 1, 2017, to read about Katie and James! It’s on sale now on Amazon and available on Kindle Unlimited!

As the sole survivor of her cousin's thirst for power and vengeance, Andie McBride must seek the aid of an ally in her fight to regain control of her clan. On his deathbed, her father appointed her laird, and with that came the responsibility of freeing her clan from Alistair's cruelty. In her fervor to escape her cousin, who is hell-bent on marrying her to solidify his control of the clan, Andie stumbles upon Riley, a boy he kidnapped. As happenstance would have it, Riley’s father was one of her clan's allies. While her father told her not to go to him, Andie decides to return his son and gain his help.

Gavin Maitland is a cynic as much as he is a bastard, and he's furious that his son was kidnapped. Hardened by the betrayal of his dead wife, and haunted by curses and prophesies, Gavin doesn't trust anyone, much less women. When he sees Andie approach with his son, he mistakenly believes she kidnapped him. Even after he learns she played no part in his son’s kidnapping or the machinations against his clan, he cannot fully trust her. Gavin agrees, however, to help her fight for her clan, but only after he finishes aiding his other allies.

As one catastrophe after another befalls, delaying aid to the McBrides, Andie and Gavin find themselves in a whirlwind attraction and affair that blossoms into love. Their journey to be with one another is wrought with deception, mistrust, and uncertainty, and when they are at last together, the Curse of the Dark Wolf threatens to take Gavin’s newfound happiness and Andie’s life. Even if Andie survives the curse, regaining control of her clan and escaping Alistair may cost her more than she thought she’d ever have to sacrifice.

To Have and To Trust is a historical romance novel with paranormal elements, set in the beautiful Scottish Highlands.

“It has always, only, ever been you.” - Cameron

Cameron MacPherson was the most powerful and loyal laird in all of Scotland. For his loyalty, Alexander II wanted to bestow the honor of an English bride, and arranged a marriage with the daughter of one of the most powerful families in England. She was also the daughter of the Baron who'd murdered his father. Much to Cameron's surprise, however, his betrothed was not unfamiliar to him.

Abigail Haynsworth was nothing more than chattel for barter at her father's whims. Her first marriage ended on her wedding day when her husband plotted to kill her. In the midst of the planned attack, a Scottish warrior saved her from certain death. The trauma of that night broke her mind, and she remained oblivious to life until the day she wed Cameron.

Cameron was taken aback that his bride was not of sound mind. When the marriage ceremony was performed and Abby's eyes met his, his world stilled. To his surprise, standing before him was the woman he'd rescued several years earlier, who had since occupied a permanent place in his thoughts. While her mind was unsound, and her voice mute, Abby uttered her first word in six years that day.

"Cameron."

Their marriage may have started as an unwanted nuisance, but as Abby's mind awakened from its trauma-induced sleep, love began to blossom between the unlikely couple. Unfortunately, intending to protect his most valued laird, Alexander placed a condition upon the marriage: a child must be conceived before a year's time or the marriage would be annulled.

And so the story of Cameron and Abby unfolds with abounding uncertainties. The desire for a child and Cameron's lust for vengeance suspend over the couple like a cloud to the sunrays of their happiness. As their love grows and flourishes, so do the dangers to their marriage and to themselves. It is not only a question of whether their marriage will survive, but whether they themselves will live through the perils ahead.

Forget Me Not, My Scottish Love, is an 85,000 word stand alone novel, part of the Heart of a Highlander Collection. It is a complete novel without any cliffhangers.
