The reissue of What She Wants and the audiobook edition of The Rescue, Lynsay's story from My Immortal Highlander, are both out now wherever books are sold!
What She Wants is one of the only stories of mine that involves a “witch”. The witch (or hag as the men like to refer to her), Eada, is like a mother to Willa, a young “peasant” woman who, for reasons unbeknownst to Hugh, has been hidden away in a cottage and taken care of by his uncle most of her life.
Hugh Dulonget (or nodcock as Eada likes to refer to him) just inherited the castle and his earldom from his now deceased uncle. However, he can’t help but refuse the final thing his uncle bequeathed him, the peasant girl’s hand in marriage. It doesn’t take Hugh long to learn though that if he wants the money needed to take care of his new castle, he’ll have to marry the girl because his uncle’s wealth is tied to Willa...
Now Hugh will have to try to change Willa’s mind about him because at this point she thinks Eada was right, the man is a nodcock. Good luck wooing her over now Lord Hugh!
As many of you know, Lynsay just had a birthday. What many of you don't know is she got a new puppy! A Great Pyrenese puppy named Drina, short for Alexandrina, and she's gonna be BIG! (Below is a pic of the new cutie on the left.)
The next book will be another Argeneau called Mile High With A Vampire, which will come out on September 28th. This story is about Abigail’s friend Jet Lassiter (who you met in Immortal Nights) and Pet’s sister, Quinn Peters, who you met in The Trouble With Vampires.
This is Argeneau Book #33 and starts with a deadly plane crash that leaves Jet, Quinn and five seriously injured immortals stranded, miles from anywhere.
Anyone want to guess what happens when an entourage of immortals wake up after being severely injured, and you're the only blood source within miles? Good luck, Jet!
And the next book coming out January is the 10th story in the Highland Brides series called Highland Wolf. The Highland Wolf is about Ross and Annabel's nephew, Bryson MacDonald, whom everyone thought was dead. In this story Lady Claray MacFarlane is just a pawn in a plan to get a hold of her family's land and title. Her greedy uncle intended to force her to marry her awful neighbor, Maldouen MacNaughton. Luckily, she's snatched away before the nightmarish nuptials could take place. She has no idea why her kidnapper, the infamous Highland Wolf, came for her. The mercenary's courage and prowess in battle are known throughout the Highlands, and with his handsome face and black-as-sin hair, he’s as intelligent and deadly as the wolf he was named for…
What I'm working on...
I recently handed in the next Highland Brides story (book #11) after the Highland Wolf. This story is about Claray MacFarlane’s sister, Allisaid. The MacFarlanes are under threat from their neighbor, Maldouen MacNaughton, who will do just about anything to get his hands on MacFarlane land. Although the sisters were all told to stay within the keep’s walls for protection, Allissaid ventures out and is taken by the MacNaughton men. While still unconscious, Maldouen has a priest marry them but luckily Allissaid finds a way to escape before he can consummate the marriage…
The Campbells have had nothing but grief from the MacNaughtons. This business of Maldouen trying to force the eldest MacFarlane daughter into marriage and the frequent thieving raids from Campbell land under the pretense of looking for his “lost bride” are just a couple of examples of what the man had got up to. Calan, Laird of the Campbells, knew there’d be more raids but he never thought the MacNaughtons would stoop so low as to actually steal the clothes off his back, until they did. Calan actually saw the naked lad who ran up and made off with his kilt… Only the lad turns out to be a naked lass. And she’s married. And now Calan can’t stop thinking about her.
And right now I’m working on the next Argeneau, book #34. I’m still in the middle of writing so I can’t say too much about it other than it’s about two popular characters in the series that readers have been asking after for quite some time.
