I've not been back since I moved to France nearly three years ago, so having guests on my blog who write about them helps a little... In my view, you can never have enough of the Highlands, and therefore I'm thrilled to welcome historical romance author Emily Royal to My Place. I have downloaded her debut novel, Sins of the Sire, and I can't wait to get reading.  Over to Emily... ~~~ Living in Scotland I’m fortunate enough to be surrounded by stunning landscapes.

The Highland Chronicles are taking off!

It’s March. The sun is shining and daffodils are coming out of hiding (unless you have a husband who mows them down in his attempt at tidying the garden...), and where am I taking you? To the wild, windswept Scottish Highlands!  Sunday, 3rd March sees the release of A Highland Captive , the second tale in my Highland Chronicles series of standalone novels.  Like Highland Arms , A Highland Captive is a fast-paced historical adventure romance. But instead of the Jacobite rebellion setting, this second instalment is set in medieval Scotland during the Wars of Independence in the late 13th century.   Island of Eorsa So, to celebrate the upcoming release of the second tale, Highland Arms is free on Amazon for three days!  And if you like what you read, feel free to download A Highland Captive , too. It’s currently on pre-order at the reduced price of 99p / 99c , but not for long after release! So allow me to take you to the beautiful Scottish Highlands & Islands.
