When Sir Donald MacDonald, Baronet of Sleat meets
trews-wearing, musket-wielding, redheaded Mary of Castleton,
he’s completely flummoxed. Such a woman would never
fit in to his aristocratic way of life. And Mary wants
nothing to do with her father’s wishes for her
betrothal. Indeed, the two agree on one thing: They are
completely, utterly and inarguably incompatible.
But when Mary is abducted from Dunscaith Castle and spirited
away in Sir Donald’s sea galley, the baronet has no
choice but to mount a rescue. When his plans are thwarted at
every turn, Donald and Mary are thrown in a tumultuous a
race for their very lives. Though destiny brings them
together, Don must face the truth smoldering in the recesses
of his heart. Can he cast aside his ideals and declare his
love for the saucy Highland lass?
Amy embarked on her writing journey shortly after she completed an MBA with Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her first manuscripts were suspense novels and were never published. She calls them baptism by fire---lessons in learning to write fiction. These lessons, combined with several writing conferences and classes, led her to write her first published book, Boy Man Chief, which won the League of Utah Writers award for Best Manuscript, and the Spark Book Award.
A lot has happened since, with some of the highlights being Rise of a Legend winning the national RONE award for Best Time Travel; hitting the Amazon Top 100 Bestseller list; and a host of other accolades.
Amy enjoys the freedom of authorship and the opportunity to work creatively every day. She has lived in Australia, Bermuda and has spent extensive time in Scotland. Whenever possible, she visits the places she writes about to add vibrant realism to her stories.
She loves writing Scottish historical romance, and now she's adding romantic suspense to the mix. Come along for the ride!
