The Scottish Bride

Susan here, with a look at my upcoming book, The Scottish Bride, now available on preorder for a June 4 release (just a couple of weeks away!). I’d love to share something about the story and historical background with you. This is a totally NEW novel, never before published! (My previous backlist books, related to these new stories but all independent reads, are recently available as the Celtic Hearts series.)

The Scottish Bride is Book One in my “Highland Secrets” trilogy. Book Two, The Forest Bride, is in editorial production (whew!), and Book Three, The Guardian’s Bride, is in the messy-but-promising writing stage. Scroll down for a sneak peek at their gorgeous covers too. I’ll post more info about those over the summer!

Secrets and heartfelt romance in medieval Scotland . . .
Three sisters of Clan Keith inherit gifts from their kinsman, the soothsayer Thomas the Rhymer, and must protect his legend and legacy—but each sister encounters a Scottish warrior intent on taking the treasure and thwarting the game.

When Lady Tamsin Keith escapes a castle tower to avoid marriage, she literally falls into the arms of a mysterious Scottish knight—Sir William Seton, sent by King Edward I to demand Thomas the Rhymer’s book of prophecies, said to be in the girl’s possession. Discovering that beautiful Tamsin is a gifted seer, Liam soon learns she is a tad too truthful, exceedingly stubborn, and has lost the Rhymer’s book. . .

But Liam’s forfeited lands and title, his wolfhounds, and his very life depend on bringing those prophecies to the king. Yet Tamsin refuses to trust the knight even as he thrills her lonely heart, even as they travel together to find the missing tome. Liam has a secret plan for that bothersome book—but never counted on falling for the lady’s headstrong allure. They must find the missing prophecies or answer to the king—but when a powerful foe threatens to tear down all they cherish, the only thing worth finding is love . . .
