Christmas is Coming...

The Christmas season is now in full swing in our home! I love Christmas and feel like it’s never too early to begin preparations. My lovely graphic designer made a beautiful new header / cover photo for me -- I hope you like it!

I would have loved to have written a Christmas book for you, but it wasn’t in the cards this year, as most of my books are set in Scotland where, interestingly, Christmas only became a holiday in 1958, ending an over 400-year ban.

The season was celebrated as the Yule in Scotland until the Scottish Reformation of 1560. Once Scotland split from the Catholic Church, feast days and church holidays were less likely to be celebrated, and Christmas was eventually banned. An Act of Scottish Parliament in 1640 officially abolished the Yule season, which was enforced by law.

Instead, the Scottish celebrated Hogmany, a time to celebrate new life. The McDougall family recognizes the holiday in my book, Promises of Sunlight. Hogmany remains a significant celebration in Scotland, however Christmas traditions have also returned.

For those of you who prefer sweet and wholesome / clean romance, I have exciting news for you! I have listened to the comments and emails from you, and beginning next month, I will be re-releasing clean versions of my books. I will begin with “Hearts of Starlight,” the first in the McDougalls series. It will have a new title and a new series name, but I will be sure to note in the description which book it is, so that you don’t read the same book twice.

I am looking for people who would like to receive advance review copies of the sweet and wholesome versions. If you are interested, please let me know by replying to this email.

And for those of you who like a bit of steam, not to worry, I will continue writing those versions as well!

Follow Bryan back to the Time of the Highlander!

I am so excited to share with you the third and final story in the Love for All Times trilogy, To the Time of the Highlander. I hope you find it a fun, romantic, satisfying conclusion to the series. Although, never say never -- many of many advanced reader team have told me they would love more, so perhaps another in this series will be forthcoming.

I will be honest -- it seemed like Bryan and Sorcha wrote this story themselves, straying from my original plotline, but ending up in the best place possible.  

The book is only $0.99, and always free with Kindle Unlimited!

Enjoy :)

Love always,
