Tomorrow, 4th July 2014, HER VENGEFUL SCOT, the second book in my Highland Warrior Chronicles, hits the cyber shelves. Of all the books I’ve written, this is one of my favourites. I always love a tortured hero and Cameron MacNeil has a bleak past with only one goal in mind: to avenge the death of his beloved younger sister.
The heroine Elise is a Pictish princess and a priestess of Bride, a powerful triple goddess. But at the time of this book, in AD 843, the old ways are being slowly but surely eroded as a new God emerges.
I love myths and legends and the Goddess culture, and in the Highland Warrior Chronicles I’ve mixed all these elements together. Not only was this time a bubbling cauldron of change in faith and religions, it was also a turbulent period of history for the wild and beautiful land we now know as Scotland.
As Cam and Elise battle to overcome the prejudices of their heritages and the machinations of the Scots king, they discover their gods are not so very different, and the most powerful force of all is love.
To avenge his sister’s honor, he must destroy the woman he wants most in the world…
Ordered to remain in Pictland, Cameron MacNeil fights the lust that consumes him whenever he encounters the aloof princess, Elise. Not only is she a cursed Pict, she belongs to the man he has vowed vengeance upon.
Despite her reputation, Elise has no interest in men until she meets Cameron. Lacking the famed Scots charm, his blunt ways enchant her and he ignites a passion she long thought dead. When she is freed from her difficult marriage, Elise places her trust in the tough Scot warrior who has stolen her heart.
Bound by blood oaths, the only way Cam can protect Elise from political schemes is to make her his bride. When Elise discovers the truth, she fears everything she knew about her husband was a lie. All she can do is trust her goddess was right and Cameron is her one true love.
