Gwyneth Carswell, an English lady banished by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands, wants nothing more than to take her young son away from the violence of two fighting clans--her own distant kin, the MacIrwins, and their enemies, the MacGraths. She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he’s left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family?

Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected. With the arrival of a powerful man from her past, a horrible decision confronts her--give up her son or the man she loves.

Describe My Fierce Highlander in three words.

Emotional. Intense. Romantic. Action packed. (Oops that's four.)

When and why did you begin writing?

I began writing when I was about eleven, but then I skipped a few years and started writing again after college. Why? When I was a kid my imagination always took over. Once I started reading romance as an adult, I thought why not create my own hot heroes and fantasy world? So I did. I love happily ever afters and intensely romantic and emotional stories. I love sexy alpha males, especially ones who wear kilts and carry swords. I'm a nut about Scotland so it was a perfect fit for me to write Highland romance stories.

How much time do you take to finish a book?

It depends on the length, complexity, amount of research necessary and how cooperative my characters are. It can take from three to nine months on a full length novel like My Fierce Highlander or My Wild Highlander.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

My favorite author is Laura Kinsale. Her writing is so beautiful, lyrical, evocative and emotional that I find it spellbinding. I can't stop reading. She's such an artist.

What are some other jobs/careers you had before becoming an author?

I was a counselor (my background is psychology.)

Can you share a little of your current/upcoming work with us?

I'm working on another Highlander novel, this one about Dirk. Those who have read My Wild Highlander will remember him as the friend of the hero. Dirk is a mysterious sort of hot hero who doesn't trust easily. In this story you will find out what happened to him when he was younger that caused this distrust.

Can you tell us about My Wild Highlander, the second book in the series?

Lady Angelique Drummagan, a half-Scottish, half-French countess, has suffered much pain and betrayal in her past. She wants nothing to do with the sensual Scottish warrior that the king has ordered her to marry because the rogue could never be a faithful husband, but she has little choice in the matter. Dangerous, greedy enemies threaten her from all sides and she’s in dire need of his protection. Sir Lachlan MacGrath, known as Seducer of the Highlands, possesses a charming wickedness and canny wit which has earned him much popularity. After the king decrees that he wed the fiery hellion, Lachlan discovers there is one woman who can resist him—Angelique. Can he break through her icy fa├žade and melt her heart, or will the dark secrets lurking in her past not only cost them their future together, but their very lives?
