Miriam Drori - Neither Here Nor There - Release Tour

Today, I welcome a relatively new Crooked Cat author: Miriam Drori ! Miriam, originally from England, now lives in Jerusalem. Her romantic novel, Neither Here Nor There , is now available. Over to Miriam...

I'm reading it at the moment and love it! :-) I had the pleasure of meeting Kate (or rather Debbie, her real-life alter ego) when she visited Edinburgh last year, and we had a blast! I must make my way over to her in Newfoundland one day... So, folks, without further ado, please check out her novels and dive into 14th century Scotland. You won't regret it! ~~~ Blurb: Nessia Stephenson's world was safe until a threat from a neighbouring clan forces her to accept a betrothal to a man whose family can offer her the protection she needs. The real threat lies in her intense attraction to the man who arranged the match—the clan's chief and her intended’s brother, Fergus MacKay. When powerful warlord Fergus MacKay arrange
