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

It is now officially summer...yay! I know there are quite a few students that are very happy now that classes have ended (Congratulations!) and likely a few parents out there who are probably wishing it was still the beginning of June because now you have to come up with something to entertain the kids with. (Perhaps I'm biased, but plopping a good book down in front of them can go a long way...it always worked on me! LOL)

This book was a lot of fun to write. I loved Saidh's character because even though she'd never had relations with a man she wasn't shy, nor did she feel any shame once they did get involved, which was quite rare especially for a lady in that day and age. And I also loved Greer, her suitor, because he didn't take advantage of her even though it would have been so easy to do so. He respected her for who she was, a lady with a LOT of spirit and personality.

Cover Reveal: The Highlander Takes A Bride, book #3 in latest Scottish Highlander series being released on July 28th. (Love this cover!)

As for my upcoming releases...

The Highlander Takes A Bride, the 3rd book in my latest Scottish Highlander series, is coming out July 28th, 2015. This book is about Saidh Buchanan, who was one of the ladies that showed up at Castle Sinclair as a potential bride for Cam (Too bad Cam was already married to Jo!). But no matter as she and Jo became good friends. Saidh is a lady like no other you've encountered... She's bold yet innocent, knows how to wield a sword and can drink any man or woman under the table. Also her suitor, Greer, is quite a standup guy. They really are perfect for one another.

And after that is book #4 in the 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 courage in that story even with her tendency to swoon.

Bricker's story, About A Vampire, is scheduled to come out on September 29th. 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 in his story...show your mettle man!

I've just finished both of the Notte twins' stories. And many have asked if they will get their own stories or not...yes, they are both getting their own stories! Dante's story is called The Runaway Vampire and at this point it is scheduled to come out in early 2016. Tomasso's story I JUST finished and handed in so although I'm certain it will come out in 2016, I couldn't tell you when. Terri says both are action packed and she loves the fact that both of the twins start out buck naked in their stories...Again I am NOT to blame for this little tidbit, the boys just ran off naked as the day they were born. (I just try to keep up with my characters and write it down as fast as I can!)

So now that I have your imaginations working overtime, I will leave you with this thought...What do you get when an RV collides with Dante Notte? (A squashed Dante, of course, and a great story! LOL)

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.
