Good Morning, back to the good ole Romances here. I would like to point out, that if you like historical romance, I would recommend this first book to you. I have read it and it was quite interesting. Enjoy! 

Child of the Mist (These Highland Hills, Book 1)
In the harsh Scottish highlands of 1565, superstition and treachery threaten a truce between rival clans. It's a weak truce at first, bound only by an arranged engagement between Anne MacGregor and Niall Campbell-the heirs of the feuding families.

While Niall wrestles with his suspicions about a traitor in his clan, Anne's actions do not go unnoticed. And as accusations of witchcraft abound, the strong and sometimes callous Campbell heir must fight for Anne's safety among disconcerted clan members. Meanwhile his own safety in threatened with the ever-present threat of someone who wants him dead.
Will Niall discover the traitor's identity in time? Can Anne find a way to fit into her new surroundings? Will the two learn to love each other despite the conflict? With a perfect mix of a burgeoning romance and thrilling suspense, this book is historical fiction at its best.

Take Me
“I want to taste you.” His voice seduced her. His body, costumed in a linen kilt and a mask of the ancient Egyptian lion-headed god of the massacre, made her body burn. It was inappropriate, unprofessional, but when he spoke, “I’m not a gentle lover. I’ll take you fast. I’ll take you hard, and I won’t stop until we’ve both come,” Diana willingly took the plunge into decadence, forgetting where they were and who she was.

Flings and Arrows
Steph Garvey has been married to husband Si for 24 years.  Steph thought they were soulmates.  Until recently.  Surely one’s soulmate shouldn’t put Chelsea FC before her?  Or boycott caressing her to fondle the remote control?  Fed up, Steph uses her Tesco staff discount to buy a laptop.  Her friends all talk about Facebook.  It’s time to get networking.

Si is worried about middle-age spread and money.  Being a self-employed plumber isn’t easy in recession.  He’s also aware things aren’t right with Steph.  But Si has forgotten the art of romance.  Although these days Steph prefers cuddling her laptop to him. Then Si’s luck changes work wise.  A mate invites Si to partner up on a pub refurbishment contract.

Son Tom has finished Sixth Form.  Tom knows where he’s going regarding a career.  He’s not quite so sure where he’s going regarding women and lurches from one frantic love affair to the next.

Widowed neighbour June adores the Garveys as if her own kin.  And although 70, she’s still up for romance.  June thinks she’s struck gold when she meets salsa squeeze Harry.  He has a big house and bigger pension – key factors when you’ve survived a winter using your dog as a hot water bottle.  June is vaguely aware that she’s attracted the attention of fellow dog walker Arnold, but her eyes are firmly on Harry as ‘the catch’.

But then Cupid’s arrow misfires causing madness and mayhem.  Steph rekindles a childhood crush with Barry Hastings; Si unwittingly finds himself being seduced by barmaid Dawn; June discovers Harry is more than hot to trot; and Tom's latest strumpet impacts on all of them. Will Cupid's arrow strike again and, more importantly, strike correctly?  There's only one way to find out....
