Lynsay's Note - to view online, select this link

Some of you may have noticed that I've had a Scottish theme going on the last week or so... well it continues and with good reason because the third book in my latest Highlander series, The Highlander Takes A Bride, is now out on the bookstore shelves! Woohoo! And a double Woohoo!!  Cause I had a blast writing Saidh's story. Really, she was sooooo much fun. I'm always sorry to see a story end, but with Saidh's, I actually dragged it past my deadline just because I didn't want to let them go. 

Anyway, here's the scoop, The Highlander Takes A Bride is about Saidh Buchanan, a lady like no other you've encountered...she's bold yet innocent, curses like a sailor, knows how to weild a sword and can drink any man or woman under the table. So...I put her together with Greer MacDonnell, a very Alpha warrior who finds his hands full when he inherits MacDonnell and then finds Lady Saidh as one of his first guests. There is a mystery involved. It seems there is a question as to whether the previous laird might have been murdered. And then some pretty suspicious "accidents" start happening around Saidh. But, together, Saidh and Greer will sort it all out in the end...and they have a blast doing it! Well, or I had a blast while they were doing. LOL.

"Do ye like to dance?" he asked suddenly.
"Nay," she said succinctly, but wondered why he'd ask such a fool question.
"Do ye sing like a canary?"
"A canary with a broken neck," she responded.
"Can ye sew a stitch?"
"I sewed me brother up once, but then I was the one who cut him while we were practicing so it seemed only fair," she informed him with a wolfish smile.

On that note, I'd like to point out that there will be exclusive excerpts, reviews and even a giveaway associated with this virtual book tour! (The grand prize is a stole of either the Buchanan or MacDonnell clan!)

I decided to post all three books in my latest Scottish Highlander series. It's interesting to see the change in styles from book #1, An English Bride, up to book #3, The Highlander Takes A Bride. It's almost as if there was a different Art Director creating each of these covers. Which cover do you like best? If you want to tell me your preference you can let me know by email, Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter! :-)

Cover Poll: Which book in Lynsay's latest Scottish Highlander series is your favorite? Book #1 - An English Bride in Scotland, or book #2 - To Marry A Scottish Laird, or book #3 - The Highlander Takes A Bride, being released on July 28th. (Love this cover!)

As for my upcoming books...

Book #4 in the Highlander series, which is about Murine Carmichael who was also one of the ladies that showed up at Castle Sinclair as a potential bride for Cam but she was the one who kept fainting throughout Jo's book, To Marry A Scottish Laird. She also became good friends with Jo and Saidh and revealed her mettle in that story even with her tendency to swoon.

Bricker's story, About A Vampire, is book # 22 in the Argeneau series is scheduled to come out on September 29th...less than two months! The rogue hunter boys will definitely have their fun with Bricker. So that and the fact that his life mate is already married and incredibly stubborn to boot will mean poor Bricker may have to undergo a trial by fire here...show your mettle man!

Dante Notte's book, Runaway Vampire, is book #23 in my Argeneau series and is tentatively scheduled to come out February 23rd, 2016. And book #24, Tomasso Notte's story, will be coming out after that, although I don't have a release date for it yet. And, Yes, I have received a LOT of emails asking me when the Notte twins stories will be done so this should make many of you happy. I know I'm very happy about it, especially since both stories start with such a stark (naked) bang! <WG>

I hope you're enjoying your summer now that the weather has turned HOT! I am, but in small doses and then I escape back into my air conditioned office again.

Take care!

The Highlander Takes A Bride Book #3 in the Scottish Highlander series...

Sword fighting, swearing, and riding astride come naturally to Saidh Buchanan. Simpering and holding her tongue—definitely not. Raised alongside seven boisterous brothers, Saidh has little interest in saddling herself with a husband…until she glimpses the new Laird MacDonnell bathing naked in the loch. Though she’s far from a proper lady, the brawny Highlander makes Saidh feel every inch a woman.

She has an angel’s looks, a warrior’s temper, and seeks out his kisses with wanton eagerness. Little wonder that Greer is intrigued by his comely guest. When reckless desire overtakes them, he’s more than willing to make an honest woman of her. But Saidh is the target of a hidden enemy, and Greer faces the battle of his life…to safeguard the woman he wants above all others.

The Loving Daylights Who doesn't love a good spy...

This James Bond-esc cover is perfect forThe Loving Daylights, a spy novel spoofing the infamous series but with a female lead of course! 

Jane Spyrus is a gadget geek who's much more like a Q than a James Bond.  But of course this isn't a serious mystery with cool lead but a humorous adventure with a charmingly quirky leading lady, her wickedly funny sidekick grandmother with her ever-present yappy lapdog.  And of course we can't forget the handsome and often bemused hero that really has no choice but to follow these ladies into trouble.

Sweet Revenge A scottish historical like no other ...

This is the second book I ever wrote, but the fourth historical of mine published. When I started Sweet Revenge I wanted it to take place in the feuding Scottish Highlands, cause there's nothing sexier than a Scot to me. I also wanted to write a story with a strong female friendship in it. Frankly, female friends rock, especially when times get tough. Fortunately for me, the hero and heroine came walking into my head fully formed. The hero is this mountain of a Scot, a strong and brave warrior who proves himself to be surprisingly considerate in private. As for the heroine, while she's sweet, intelligent and bold, the first impression she makes isn't that great. Okay, basically, the Scots think she's batty. You shouldn't be surprised to hear, then, that I had a blast writing this one.

To Marry A Scottish Laird is book #2 in An English Bride in Scotland series.
