Vexing the Highlander is Out!

If you have already bought the anthology, Enchanting the Highlander, then this novella was in it. But if you haven’t, the novella is now available on its own. 🙂

 

Lady Aila MacIntosh hopes she doesn’t regret the king’s marital choices for her and her sister. Until one braw Highlander bumps into her at the king’s gathering. He’s as taken with her as she is with him, until she learns he is but a commoner, when she is a lady. The king would never make a match between them. Alban of the Clan Daziel meets a beautiful woman at the king’s court, only she is a lady and out of his reach. When the lady and he meet under awkward circumstances, they chance to overhear a plot to assassinate the king. Their lives spiral out of control and losing his heart to Aila is only one of his pressing concerns. Protecting her from those who wish the king dead—his greatest.

Yesterday, my neighbor, who loves historical romance, asked when I was going to be writing my next Highland book. This will be it. I just love this cover. 🙂 It’ll be next year. I have to finish Loving the White Bear this year and work on the next wolf story after that. 🙂 ❤
myhighlander_mediumI just need to get Between a Wolf and a Hard Place edits back to the publisher, and get back to writing on Loving the White Bear. Because of edits, I missed my word count. 😦
Tomorrow, I’ll share some Christmas stories, some by me, and some by other authors. Though I didn’t get a lot of takers. Holidays are a hard time to keep up with everything! 🙂
Have a wonderful day!

Puffins–Fun with Photos

The puffins were swimming up above, but the fun was the family in a bubble looking up at them as if they were in the water. The puffin below had his beak against the glass and was as fascinated with me as I was with him. 🙂

I’m over halfway done with Loving the White Bear!

Have a great day!

Double Cougar Trouble is Out!

double-cougar-trouble-with-pine-tree-final-900

Trouble doesn’t always come in twos.

Jack Barrington still has an army obligation that takes him away from the woman who had enchanted him when they were both in college, but Dottie Hamilton refuses to marry a man in the military because of the problem of raising cougar shifter cubs in foreign lands and the worry he may be killed while overseas like her cousin was, leaving a wife and three little ones behind. When Jack returns home to see his family and Dottie’s only living relative, her aunt, she convinces Dottie to bring her twins home to see her—and to see him. Jack has two-and-a-half weeks to convince Dottie to wait for him while he finishes his last three months on active duty. And learns the truth. Dottie’s twins are his own flesh and blood.

Dottie has made a lot of mistakes in her life, including providing a father for her children by marrying a man, who turns out to be an arms’ dealer. When Jack returns to her after finishing his army obligation, he’s determined to prove he’s the mate she needs in her life, and he has every intention of being the father to his four-year-old twins. Now the criminal deeds of Dottie’s dead ex-husband have come back to haunt her. And she and Jack and their cougar friends will have to band together to stop the arms’ dealers before they destroy what the cougars hold dear.

Close-ups of Christmas Decorations

the-world-in-an-ornament-534x800I don’t know if I have any great reflective balls, but I don’t think so. They make for a fun kind of photo.

Okay, I’m off to write. I’m nearly ready to publish Double Cougar Trouble. Loving the White Bear is over halfway done, and I’ve got to work on Between a Wolf and a Hard Place!

That’s my fun.

Hope you are finding some fun too!

Playing Around with Low Light Indoor Shots

Unfortunately, the focus on the middle picture was more on her bed than her.mishka-body-table-and-fireplace-534x800I wanted to capture the fireplace and my son’s dog, Mishka, in the low light of the living room. The blinds were open, but it’s still not really light, in fact, it was pouring rain all day, and there is no overhead light in the living room. So that was it. I got down low on the floor to take the first two shots. I wanted to get to her eye level.

In the first two shots her bed was farther away from the fireplace so the background had a nice creamy bokeh. In the last picture, I had moved her bed closer to the fireplace and so you see both more clearly.

She was very good. If I’d gotten on the floor with my dogs, they would have been all over me. Actually, she did join me too and I was playing with her, then trying to get her back in her bed to take a couple of more shots.

Now I wish I had a fireplace too. 🙂  It was one thing I really wished I’d had when I bought the house.. But I love so much about the house I bought it anyway. Even though we don’t have long winters, we do have winter and they’re so nice to have.

Have a great one! I’m off to write. 🙂

Cold, Cold, Cold
