Her Trusted Highlander
Book 1 of The Mackalls of Dunnet Head
 

Katriona Hughes has no idea how she’s managed to find herself in 16th century Scotland, but she’s beginning to think the gigantic emerald gem she picked up on an archeological site may have had something to do with it.  Wanting nothing more than to return to her own time, Kat is betrayed by the first person she meets and forced into a marriage with a loathsome stranger. Now running for her life, Kat meets the one man who deserves her trust, but can she give it to him.


Nick Mackall is happy to finally be back in his beloved Scotland after accidentally being transported to twenty first century San Francisco and spending the last two years of his life there.  His home and family are calling to him, but things are not about to go smoothly for the handsome highlander as he meets a young woman fleeing her husband and an old foe returns from the dead.  Two things are certain - he must gain the woman’s trust in order to save her and he must stop his foe from unleashing the power of an imprisoned sorcerer

 
Her Noble Highlander
Book 2 of The Mackalls of Dunnet Head
 

Two marriageable sisters, one Highland Laird.  What could possibly go wrong?

 

Isla and Merry Mackall are of marriageable age and Laird Aleck Sinclair is interested, but which sister is most suited to becoming Lady Sinclair? Isla is a warrior at heart and has no wish to be a wife.  Merry is her exact opposite, everything a Highland laird like Aleck Sinclair could ask for.  The sisters each believe the other should be the one to marry Laird Sinclair and while Aleck’s physical attraction is to Isla, he sees Merry’s sweet and nurturing demeanor to be more fitting for a wife.  His decision is complicated by the mysterious appearance of a bairn from the future who appears courtesy of Edna Campbell and Anania, the Elven Queen. The child must be protected at any cost.  Nurturing instincts, which she was sure she didn’t possess, arise in Isla as she vows to protect the child with her life if necessary.  Aleck, intent on finding the bairns Ma, clashes with Isla who has grown attached to the little one.

 

Protecting the child and returning her to the future will complicate matters as they fight a man who seeks vengeance against Edna and wants the child for his own evil purpose.  A lot is riding on this, including the future of the Sinclair name.

Her Mysterious Highlander
Book 3 of The Mackalls of Dunnet Head

An outsider in two worlds, Taegen Boideach has learned to navigate through life by hiding his true identity.  Although his mother is queen of the elves, he is also half human and as such has been banished from their world to live a solitary life among people who would reject him if they knew his true identity.

 

Merry has lived a privileged life as a Mackall, where she's been protected and sheltered from the outside world.  She's beginning to feel the need to spread her wings.  Her attraction to the mysterious Taegen is the first step in Merry's determining her own path, but he's resistant and she doesn't understand why.  New to love and its complications, Merry refuses to give up on him even as they approach imminent danger. 

 

On a quest to save Scotland, Merry and Taegen are in the eye of the storm as they work together to destroy the Twin Sword and its maker, an evil sorcerer. Will they be successful in their quest? With the help of their elf and human companions it's possible only if they can all learn to trust and accept each other, but old prejudices and preconceived notions may stand in the way of their success.
