Her Forbidden Highlander Husband v8Found wandering on MacKinlay lands when he was a young boy, Liam was given a
home and a name by the MacKinlay laird. He was grateful, yet, he never quite felt
like he belonged. Instead, he longed to one day have a family of his own. And he’d
hoped to start that family with Evelyn Stewart.
Having met her years ago under dire
circumstances, he hadn’t forgotten the strong woman he’d escorted back to her family’s
lands. When her father rejects his offer for her a third time, Liam has no choice but to
return to his clan empty-handed and empty-hearted.
Evelyn made a mistake years ago and paid for it dearly. During her time in captivity,
she’d wished only to be returned to her loving father. But the kind man she’d known
changed into a bitter laird who has barely looked at her the last four years. Now, he plans to marry her off to a man she’s never met to a clan she knows nothing about. She hoped never to be forced to marry, but now that it seems inevitable, the best she can hope for is to pick a man she knows to be kind. Liam MacKinlay was a friend years ago. During her darkest days when she’d thought she might fall apart, he was there to help hold her together.
Running away to marry him seems like her best option at the time, and Liam is willing to
face whatever comes next to have her as his wife. But every decision has repercussions
and every marriage faces challenges.
They can only hope their marriage doesn’t end in war for their clans.

Raven Rock

Sequel to Outer Banks


Can love survive as society collapses?

Corey McAllister lived through the first alien attack fourteen years ago. Plagued by nightmares of the giant Bugs that had infected him and made him a Haunt, he’s still leery of the government that detained him for his own protection.

Now, fully human with a PhD behind his name, he’s ready to embrace his future in aerospace engineering. But when the abandoned and forgotten alien beacons in our atmosphere send out a signal that causes a response from the former Haunts, Corey’s plans are delayed. He’s instead recruited to help find a way to stop the Bugs from returning to Earth.

Kitriona Vanetti was spared during the last attack when the Bugs passed her over to take her younger sister. Kit’s interest in insects came from a desire to be prepared for another invasion.

The entomologist has been enlisted to join Corey’s team. However, it’s clear her skills as a “bug doctor” will only be needed in a worst-case scenario.

Their attraction grows into a something stronger as they work to find a way to save the world. Another detainment for the Haunts is enacted. This time a secret, underground military installation in Raven Rock Mountain will keep the Haunts safe from any more alien signals as well as the hate groups lurking outside the gates.

Corey has been down this road before. The pressure is on to stop the Bugs from returning before society decides to go with Plan B and destroy the Haunts once and for all. As Corey gets closer to Kit, he discovers the women he loves could be an even bigger threat to humanity than the Bugs.
