THE HIGHLANDER’S LOVING HEART
Release – Winter 2023
Cillian Pherson is the Duke of Blackridge and chieftain to the legendary Pherson Clan, one of Scotland’s oldest, and fiercest. A strong leader with an honest warrior’s loving heart, Cillian prefers settling clan wars and making sure Scotland maintains independence to sitting in the Grand Hall, listening to his father regale old stories. Cillian also has no thoughts of settling down to beget heirs, as his father constantly reminds him he must, until the night he gets a glimpse of his future.
Upon returning home after months away serving his king, Cillian brings back good news about the war, along with unpleasant news about his future. After an argument with his father, Cillian storms out of the castle and takes to the mountainous paths of his Scottish lands, only to witness a ship crashing against the rocks below the cliffs.
Lady Aoife Bohannon knows there is more to this world than can be found within the walls of her castle, high atop the rocky cliffs on Beannacht Isle. Aoife loves nothing more than to ride through the fields toward the busy ports to watch her clan’s merchant ships sail in and out. Aoife longs to go on a grand adventure, sailing the seas on her own ship, but at her mother’s insistence, Aoife agrees to hold court to a would-be suitor and stay away from the ports!
But even with Aoife’s best intentions to help her good friend, Aoife finds the call of adventure too hard to resist. She soon finds out that adventure is closer than she thinks, and right where she never would have thought she wanted to be.
Now, Cillian must find a treasure that is missing from the wreckage—one the crew claims is the most-valued jewel aboard, and one he only caught a glimpse of.
REDEMPTION FOR THE COWBOY
Release – Summer 2023
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law. —Galatians 3:13
Remington Haylord is a preacher’s son. Remington was raised with a respect and love of the Word of God and a love of taking care of animals. Instead of running with his biker buddies down in Texas, Remington ran with the horses. Although Remington has not always led his life according to the Word, he knows that not every walk with Christ is an easy one, and yet, he feels a preacher’s life is not for him. Now, after a few years in the corporate arena, he’s found a peaceful life at the Sawyer Ranch.
While standing at the head of a church, officiating his best-friend’s wedding, Remington looks down the aisle and is both shocked and amazed. The hardened heart of this cowboy is softened because walking down the aisle as the maid of honor, in a vision of pastel-yellow, is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen.
Phoebe Washington has never been to Montana, and if it wasn’t for her best friend’s wedding, she wouldn’t be there now. As soon as she rides beneath the Sawyer Ranch sign, she’s ready to turn around and board the first plane back to her concrete-jungle home—downtown Chicago—with her favorite tea shop on the corner and the courtroom drama she hates. Phoebe can handle her own in the courtroom. Fighting is one of the things she does best, but Phoebe doesn’t need to fight her way to the glass table. Phoebe makes her own table.
Despite any first impressions, Phoebe has a change of heart about staying on in Montana when she sees the big, handsome cowboy standing next to her best friend’s soon-to-be husband. It looks like she’ll be staying in Montana for a while! He’s quiet, withdrawn, and yes, he’s grumpy. Yet on the rare occasions when he does smile, his face lights up like the big Montana sky. But to Phoebe’s chagrin, he avoids her whenever she gets within a few feet of him. How can she make Remington see that here, with him, is where he wants her to be—and where she needs to be?
