I’m feeling a little sentimental today.
My first novel, Highland Solution was first released almost four years ago, on September 3, 2013. It was the story that had been swirling in my imagination for years. Many of the characters had existed for over thirty years before I found the time and courage to write them into a story and send it out into the world. And at the risk of sounding crazy they felt, and still do feel, very real to me. Katherine had the traits I value most in a person, kindness, compassion, generosity, tolerance and an incredible capacity to love. And while I love all of the heroines I have created, she is, and I think will always be, my favorite.
Benedict MacIan, who you will meet in The Choice is a direct descendant of Katherine and Niall.
Within weeks Highland Solution became the #1 bestseller on Amazon in medieval and Scottish historical romance. After its re-release in June of 2014, with the aid of BookBub, it became the #1 bestselling historical romance on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Almost immediately I started receiving requests for stories about swoon-worthy secondary characters, Tadhg Matheson and Fingal MacIan. But many readers also wanted to know what happened to Tomas, the seven-year-old orphan Katherine brought with her to Duncurra and adopted. Well it has taken a few years for him to grow up. We saw a glimpse of him as a fourteen-year-old in the epilogue for Highland Intrigue but it is finally time for you to meet the man he has become. Tomas’s story, Highland Redemption, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.
And for those of you who hated that fact that Ambrose Ruthven got away with buying Katherine’s inheritance, you might enjoy knowing that karma has him in her cross-hairs.
