Feisty Maggie MacBede will never marry a warrior. Och no! With eight strapping brothers and a warrior of a Da, she has had enough of holding her own against headstrong men. She’ll not risk her heart to the sword. Give her a poet, a bard, any man but a fighting man, and she will find her match.
Talorc the Bold, the Laird MacKay, has no care for Maggie’s foolishness. When he heard the MacBede battle cry, “For Our Maggie!” and witnessed the impossible victory it spurred, he set out to marry her for the clan. Then he felt her in his arms and knew he would marry her for himself and the grand power of their mating.
The clan intercedes, the two are Handfasted, married for a year and a day, as an enemy lurks deep in the belly of the clan. By winning his bride’s love, Talorc may just lose her life.

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
If you want to be a writer read first, study your favorites, learn why they compel you to tell stories. Then start writing and don’t stop. Don’t be afraid of critiques and don’t dismiss them out of hand. Face them with curiosity. Play with suggestions to see if they are helpful then use what you will, discarding the rest. Follow your instincts and have fun. If you aren’t having fun the reader will know it.
An Accidental Writer ~
Writing was a tool, not a toy, until a stay in a haunted hotel. Howling wind and creaking floors sent me to a bookcase full of dog eared romances. Sleeplessness turned to fascination. Hooked I read old romances, new romances, both sexy and sweet, until my own tales begged to be written.
I now live in Wyoming with my family. Despite frequent travels I am, at heart, a homebody believing the mind is the most fascinating playground of all.What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Something about the loyalties of Scottish clans, the strength and tenacity to survive in a harsh rugged climate and, of course, those kilts earned a kind of respect. Then I learned about Handfasting and couldn’t help but toy with ‘what ifs’ the way someone else would play with a rubik cube.
