Nothing is more powerful than love…not even death.

Arthur Preston, the next Earl of Blackborn, has always known his grandfather was eccentric, but this latest revelation from the man who raised him borders on the insane. If not for the solicitor verifying the terms of his parents’ will, he’d think it another of dear old granddad’s pranks.

Arthur must seek the help of the Guardian of Midnight Manor in finding a wife, or he will never come into the full of his inheritance. But there’s a slight problem. The Guardian of Midnight Manor is a ghostly dog rumored to haunt the burned-out remains of the original family seat that is now turned into a farmstead.

Jennet Ross, her decrepit grandfather, and meddling auntie are seeking a fresh start as tenant farmers in England. They lost their tenancy in Scotland, evicted by the rude landowner when Jennet spurned the man’s unwanted advances by breaking his nose with a spade. They’re thankful Lord Blackborn agreed to lease to them, even if the place is rumored to be haunted. Besides, the only dog Jennet has seen since they moved in is the sweet stray she feeds each day.

According to legend, the Guardian of Midnight Manor finds true love for the heirs of the Blackborn line. Arthur thinks it a myth. Granddad knows better. Never underestimate the power of love—even when it comes from beyond the grave.

A Scot to Love and Protect
Once Upon a Scot – Book 3

Her arrow hit his shoulder. Her beauty caught his eye. But then there was the kiss…

Commander Valan MacDougall and his men are sent to end an extended attack on Caerlaverock Castle, the stronghold of Clan Maxwell. The warriors fully expect the reportedly aged widow of the keep to swoon with relief when they arrive. The English have plagued the fortress and surrounding village for weeks. The warriors from Argyll mean to end the siege in a day or less. In fact, they’re placing bets on just how long it will take. After all, they are the invincible Gallóglaigh, and the English are…the English.

However, they discover that Lady Elspet Maxwell is not aged at all. She is a widow, but far from old. And the woman fights as fiercely as any man. The only thing surpassing her warring prowess is her incredible beauty. A beauty capable of bringing men to their knees. Valan regrets his order that Maxwell women are not to be touched by the mercenaries. Of course, he’s broken orders before and intends to do so again with the Lady Elspet—if she will allow.

Enemies outside the castle walls. Unknown enemies within. Meddling matchmakers too powerful to ignore. And the matter of Elspet making amends for shooting Valan not once, but twice. The atonement he requires from her? Just a kiss. What harm could come from one little kiss?

Book 4 up for preorder at just 99¢

He might take her prisoner...

...but she’ll take his heart.  


Lyla knows she needs something—she just doesn’t know what.

Lyla Smythe is restless with that same uncomfortable edginess that always hits before a major life shakeup. She just needs to stay busy and ignore the feeling. Maybe it’s because her annoying sister moved in. They’ve always been opposites in every way. But at least they share a love of the stars.

Armed with homemade wine, they hike to Arthur’s Seat and watch a meteor shower. But the wine must be tainted. One minute, they’re retching under the stars, the next, it’s morning, and Edinburgh has somehow turned into a tiny hamlet. Before Lyla can sort it all out, riders approach. The leader, a fiercely handsome man, sets her sixth sense buzzing. 

Grant knows what he needs—but he’s afraid to repeat the past.

After his uncle’s execution, Chieftain Grant Reddoch trusts very few. When he comes upon two strangely dressed women who seem addled, he’s certain they are spies. Best take them prisoner. Keep allies close. Keep those you don’t trust closer. The one called Lyla unnerves him. She clouds his judgement with the endearing friendliness of an irresistible puppy. 

With growing political unrest, the last thing he needs is distractions. But the more he’s around Lyla, the more he needs her. And so, they wed. Then she tells him of her past and forces him to realize his error. He needs a wife and mother to his bairns. Not a woman suffering from lunacy. He locks her away for her own safety. Like he should have done with his first wife before she hanged herself.

Lyla knows she can make Grant happy and be a good mother to his children—if only he will let her. One way or another, she will capture her Highland keeper and love him until he has no choice but to accept time travel and love her as fiercely as she loves him.


Looking for a sigh-worthy page turner to make you laugh, cry, and stay up entirely too late to find out what happens? Then this Scottish historical time travel romance by USA TODAY bestselling author Maeve Greyson is the one for you. An Alpha male Highlander, a feisty modern-day woman, and a love that ignores the boundaries of time. Escape to the Highlands. Leave reality behind!

Eternity's Mark - A Fantasy Romance


Eternity’s Mark – A Fantasy Romance


Destiny’s call isn’t always gentle. Sometimes it bellows like a beast.


The sacred blood of the last remaining Draecna Guardian flows through Hannah MacPherson’s veins. She just doesn’t know it, and even if she did, she wouldn’t believe it. She believes in reality. Nothing else. Widowed by the Iraq war, she’s now the best and only veterinarian in the tiny town of Jasper Mills, and she’s made it painfully clear to any man foolish enough to try that she is not available and never will be. All she wants is a quiet life in the country taking care of her four-legged patients, and she’ll do whatever it takes to preserve that life—including ignoring scammy emails and letters about an inheritance in Scotland.

Then Taggart de Gaelson shows up, claiming to know more about her than she ever fathomed. As Hannah’s ordained Protector, he intends to retrieve her and enlighten her about her divine calling. The balance of the Continuum depends on the sacred Draecna who maintain the strength of the portals. Only Hannah’s touch can release this era’s hatchlings from their eggs—the hatchlings destined to take the place of the elderly Draecna guarding the portals.

Sworn to protect Hannah from all others who lust for control of the creatures, Taggart must win her trust. But as he battles at her side, she stirs a longing he must never pursue. A Protector is forbidden to love a Guardian—to do so risks everything and no one can protect his precious Hannah as well as he can.

As the 2011 winner of RT Magazine’s Writing with the Stars contest, this romantic fantasy of dragon-like creatures, shifters, forbidden love, and worlds that exist beyond magical portals will make you laugh, cry, and stay up entirely too late to find out what happens. Escape to Taroc Na Mor and Erastaed with Hannah and Taggart and leave reality behind!

Previously published in 2012, this revised edition with its fresh new cover contains additional scenes never before published.

A Scot to Have and to Hold
Once Upon a Scot – Book Two


Sometimes the best revenge is to thrive…

When Ross MacDougall, fearless warrior, frequenter of brothels, and seducer of other men’s wives, receives word that the Lord of Argyll wishes to reward him for their latest campaign, he’s skeptical. His liege’s gifts are often dubious blessings. Oftentimes, more like curses. Turns out he’s right to be leery. The reward is an Irish lass who looks like a grubby boy meant to work in the stables. And she's not intended to be Ross’s slave. She’s meant to be his wife.

Men turn away from Elise O’Cleirigh because of the accursed red stain on her right cheek. Her father called it the devil’s mark. Her mother promised it meant nothing. All Elise knows is that it’s brought her nothing but suffering. This arrogant Scot looks to be no different from the others, and that’s fine by her. She escaped her first ruthless husband. She’ll flee this one as well. But this Highlander turns out to be sly. He fights with weapons she’s ill-equipped to counter: kindness, respect, and a gentleness that makes her heart hurt. The man even apologizes when he behaves like a selfish goat. He makes her want to be wanted. And needed. By him. Not a good thing at all because come spring, she’s gone.

She’s the victim of a cruel jest. He dared fate one time too many. An unlikely pair, a winter together reveals they’re not so mismatched after all. But the past proves inescapable, returning with a vengeance to destroy them.

A Scot of Her Own is released!

 

A Scot of Her Own
Once Upon a Scot – Book One

Fire and ice. Powerful enough forces on their own. Combined? Invincible passion.

When mighty Thorburn MacDougall, commander of the Lord of Argyll’s warriors, overpowers the canniest Norwegian he’s ever battled, he rips off the man’s helm to savor the look of horror right before delivering the killing blow. But the canny Norwegian isn’t a man at all. She’s a blue-eyed beauty with fire in her eyes and fury in her soul.

Adellis Bjørnsdóttir weighed the risks and found them worth it. Freedom. At any cost. The only other escape is death, and she’s not ready to give up yet. But the Gallóglaigh warrior, the fearsome Scottish bear she allows to capture her, isn’t the cruel tyrant she thought to endure long enough to secure safe passage to Scotland. He’s protective. Considerate. Stubborn as an ox. And entirely too tempting.

Honor. Chivalry. Outwitting traitors, murderers, and old enemies? All easy enough. But trusting? Finding the courage to love? Therein lies the challenge.

The Ghost – Book 6 – Highland Heroes

While searching for his son, he finds something he never expected: a woman to love.

If only she didn’t hate him…

Clan MacCoinnich is the only family Magnus de Gray has ever known. But when a message catches up with him five years too late, he discovers he has more family than he thought. He has a son. But the dear lady who gave him this gift died while bringing the wee one into the world. Magnus isn’t about to abandon his child—not the way his father abandoned him. He’s determined to find the boy and bring him home to Clan MacCoinnich.

Brenna Maxwell loved her sister Bree with all her heart, but if she could reach beyond the grave, she would shake her until her teeth rattled. All Brenna ever wanted was to be a healer and even convinced her cruel father to let her leave the keep for training. She returned to find her unmarried sister pregnant and both of them banished from the clan. While on the run, her sister died bringing the babe into the world, leaving Brenna with the precious child to love and protect.

She spent years hating this man she had never met. The selfish womanizer responsible for her sister’s death and more pain and suffering than she could bear to think about. But then he saved her life. And he’s kind. And it turns out he’s not a womanizer at all, but a quiet warrior who struggles to say what he really means. He’s just a man who wants to take care of his son and make up for the past.

How can she hate a man like that? A man determined to make her love him?

So many things in the past she wants to escape—except one.

Satia St. Clair, a street smart, socially aloof, microbiologist, is literally immersed in her research at a Highland loch when a crumbling ledge tosses her into its murky depths without her diving gear. The last thing she expects is for a 14th century Scottish warlord to pull her to safety. 

Not only does he save her, but Kane Macpherson half believes her to be a faerie queen. After all, myth and folklore surround An Lochan Uaine. But even when common sense wins out, something about the beguiling lass demands she be treated like the special woman he instinctively knows she is. And he swears to protect her from anyone or anything. Which could be a problem when she makes the mistake of sharing her otherworldly knowledge of events yet to happen, and it gets back to his liege, Robert the Bruce. Kane soon realizes the greatest danger to Satia is herself. He’s in peril, too. Or at least, his heart is. Fae queen or not, this green-eyed beauty not only possesses the second sight, but the power to capture a man’s heart and soul without even realizing it. 

Satia is so drawn to Kane it frightens her. But the last time she let what amounted to nothing more than a stupid infatuation blind her common sense, the lowlife maggot pirated her research, published it under his name, and made her the laughingstock of the scientific community. She refuses to be conned again. And when she discovers a critical link to her cancer study while in the past, she’s determined to get it back to her time. Her best friend’s life and the lives of so many others depend on it. But that means ignoring her heart and leaving Kane behind. Hopefully, just for a little while, but possibly forever.  

A string of foster homes taught Satia to never let down her guard or believe in anything silly as love, but Kane makes that so hard to remember. And even worse, when she reverses her trip through time and takes the cure back to the 21st century, home doesn’t feel like home anymore. She doesn’t belong anywhere and mourns the chance at a life she should never have left behind. 

Now all she can do is hope to make it back to her Highland Warrior and win him all over again. That is, if the 14th century will let her.
