(2015)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Three tales; three beautiful, brave heroines caught up in the dangerous political intrigues of powerful and ruthless men. Set during the turbulent times of Scotland (and Russia) from the 16th to 18th centuries, these passionate women must fight for their very survival as well as for love. Fast-paced stories of desire, betrayal and unshakable love.
THE JACOBITE LASS: Scotland, 1740's: growing up on a remote Scottish island, beautiful and free-spirited Flora MacDonald is in love with childhood sweetheart, elusive Jacobite, Neil, yet increasingly drawn to passionate and handsome Allan. But tragedy strikes and the fate of a fugitive prince is in her hands. Will she risk everything for the sake of those she loves?
Deeply emotional and uplifting, THE JACOBITE LASS is set in the turbulent times of 18th century Scotland and is based on the true story of Scottish heroine, Flora MacDonald and Bonnie Prince Charlie.
THE BELTANE FIRES: Chief's daughter, the fiery Mairi Lismore is in love with Douglas Roskill, heir to Duntorin Castle, but they are wrenched apart by the zealous witch-hunts of Zechariah Black and the jealousy of her step-sister. Sent to the Royal Court of James VI in Edinburgh, Mairi discovers that its gaiety and glitter hide dark treachery and the ruthless ambition of Robert Boswell who determines to have her for himself at any cost. With treason, betrayal and revenge thwarting Mairi and Douglas's attempts to be reunited, this is a gripping historical love story which moves from the embattled fringes of the Scottish Highlands to the dangers and intrigues of 16th century Edinburgh.
HIGHLANDER IN MUSCOVY: 1700s: Beautiful and impulsive Katherine Putulo, daughter to a Scots doctor, has been raised in the foreign quarter of Muscovy (Moscow) among European emigres. On her sister's wedding day, Katherine recklessly disguises herself as a Russian maid servant and slips away to the forbidden part of the city to join in the revelry of Tsar Peter's victorious returning army, dancing the night away with the native Russians. There she captures the interest of hardened mercenary and handsome Scottish Highlander, Major Alexander Ballantyne, one of the Tsar's bravest officers who has caused a scandal by taking a Russian princess as his mistress.
Smothering her attraction to Alexander, Katherine finds herself the target of unwanted attention from selfish and scheming, Hector Maitland, her noble godfather's nephew. Under the veneer of refined society in the foreign enclave lies tension and betrayal; a shocking murder leads to Alexander's arrest and Katherine is forced to make the hazardous journey to Scotland - the desolate and beautiful land of her father though a foreign country to her. Yet it is not the safe haven for which she longs. Who can she trust and will she ever see Alexander alive again?
From the glittering Russian court of Peter the Great to the wild Scottish Highlands, HIGHLANDER IN MUSCOVY is a fast-paced tale of ambition, betrayal and unbreakable bonds of love.
