Hello Readers! I have a special ‘welcome’ gift for everyone who joins my newsletter…

Three great short reads! During the first week that you join my readers’ circle, I’ll gift to you (starting with A Highland Legend immediately) THREE books written just for you! I created these especially for those who join my readers’ email list, so I do hope you enjoy them. 🙂 What else? Well, when you join my Readers’ Circle, you’ll be the first to find out when I publish a new book. I’ll also let you know about other great reads and special offers, and sometimes I’ll treat you to a sneak preview of the book I’m writing. It’s all great fun!
