Leap Year–Good or Bad?

“Leap year comes one in four, and February has one day more!” What if you were born on that one day, and only got to really officially celebrate it one day out of every four? Otherwise, you would be caught up in the world in between. The world of the fae! Finishing up The Viking’s Highland Lass then working on Golden Fae next!

I don’t usually post twice in a day unless I make a mistake and prepost two blogs for the same day, or unless something really crucial comes up.

In this case, I forgot it was Leap Year, so I thought it would be fun to mention it! Do you ever do anything special for Leap Year? Or is it just an extra day of work? Since I’m always on deadline, it’s a great way to have another day to write. 🙂

Turning a Photo into Inspiration

lake view in Scotland 002 (640x417)I love taking photos of anything and everything and some of my fans kept saying I needed to frame them. Well, at the old house, I had no space for one more picture of anything. But at the new house, lots of wall space. So…this was one of my most favorite photos of Scotland. Though I have tons. I want to do one of Eilean Donan. But I loved the flowers, trees, the hills and loch. And down below, you can even see the roof of a cottage that adds more character to the photo.

I’ve always wanted to live on the water. I love the water. But I also love trees and hills and flowers. What could be better than being able to glance over from my desk and see the beauty of Scotland whenever I’m writing? It looks like a window to the great outdoors–my personal outdoors. It just needs a castle off in the distance.

Don’t you love it? Do you have a picture that inspires you?

The Viking’s Highland Lass

160f3-theviking27shighlandlass28533x80029Book 7 in the series!

Gunnolf was left for dead when he was young as he went on one of his kin’s raids, but finds his way to the Highlands and a home with the MacNeill Clan. The clan’s seer warns him he must rescue a woman in need, only he rescues the wrong woman. Yet, Brina is in need. Her father, wounded in battle by Gunnolf’s own kind, must oust the tyrant who has taken his place if he is to rule. Yet he needs Gunnolf’s help, but Gunnolf learns Brina’s father had killed Gunnolf’s brother.

Brina is torn between hating the Viking who has rescued her, and knowing that his kin had killed her grandfather in an age old tale of fighting between their people, and loving the man who took her under his protection, and the wolf cub she insisted on rescuing.

Now, Gunnolf must make a choice: wed the lass as her father has insisted and restore her father’s position as chief of his clan when he’s not sure her father is trustworthy, hoping he can obtain a peace between his people and hers, or leave well enough alone and stay with the MacNeill Clan, his family for the past ten years. The problem is one sweet Highland lass that makes him want a woman—this woman—to warm his bed and have his bairns and to protect and cherish, when having a wife was the furthest notion from his mind…until one prediction changed his whole life.

***

I promised this book a while back, fully intended to have it done by December, but hadn’t planned to buy a house and put a house up for sale, which meant all kinds of work and turmoil and work, and then I had contracted three new books, and the one was due March 1st, and that HAD to be written.

Soooo, my priority was to finish writing The Viking’s Highland Lass, which was already over halfway written as soon as Loving the Silver Wolf was finished. Next is The Golden Fae, also promised. 🙂

And then, I think I have to get back to writing another wolf book after that.

So for now, preorders are up at:

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Vikings-Highland-Lass-Highlanders-Book-ebook/dp/B01C9JCKCA

Kobo: https://store.kobobooks.com/en-us/ebook/the-viking-s-highland-lass

I will have it at the other sites as soon as I can. And it will also be in print.

Back to the book because I love Gunnolf and hope that my readers will love him just as much in a tale of his own!

Have a great day!

Do They Not Remember…

That I once protected them as they protected me? Where are those who gave me life and I gave them a way to live now that I need their loving hands to take care of me once again?

Do the buildings that now house them stand the ravages of time like I have done? Do not leave me to ruin, I beseech you.

Oh, Captain, Oh, Captain, Where Art Thou?

another old boat (640x427)

I watch and I wait and I know you’ll return. Because you once loved me as much as I loved carrying you across the sea.

May your journeys always be seaworthy!

Is it Fixable?

Old boat, tide out (640x427)I look at these two boats, well, three, if you count the dinghy. But they’re like manuscripts, or art, photos, architecture. Some are salvageable. Some…well, maybe not.

These were near one of the castle ruins on the Isle of Skye while the tide was out. Do you think the sunken boat will ride the waves again?

Have a super day!!!
