Three sinfully sexy Highlander romances by Joanne Wadsworth.

HIGHLANDER’S CASTLE ~ features a rugged Scottish warrior who agrees to handfast with a lass from the enemy clan. When she arrives at Alex’s castle, the last thing he expects is a woman claiming to come from the future, and a woman who ignites in him a powerful desire. When she is taken from him back through time, he’ll do all he can to get her back…

HIGHLANDER’S MAGIC ~ Archie MacDonald has been gifted a faerie who insists she’s from the future and the progeny of both his and his enemy’s clan. All he needs is Marie’s aid in the coming battle, to rid the world of his enemy. Although in seeking his revenge against her paternal ancestor…he might very well kill the one woman who’s now stolen his heart.

HIGHLANDER’S CHARM ~ Lila MacIan is transported through time to the Scottish warrior her magical charm has soul-bound her to, a man she must now escape even though he has no intention of letting her go…

Highlander’s Castle – Exclusive Excerpt.

HIGHLANDER’S CASTLE

Highlander Heat, #1

BUY THE BOOK: Amazon Kindle

I’m bringing you an exclusive excerpt today from Highlander’s Castle which released a month ago. I hope you enjoy.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Like an ethereal vision, Anne glided toward Alex. She reached him and he couldn’t help fingering her waist length locks. Even the sun’s rays feasted on her, setting her white-gold hair ablaze.

Damn. How would he keep his hands off her when she looked this edible? “You look…bonnie.”

“Thank you.” Her sapphire eyes burst with brightness. “You’ve washed up well yourself.”

Edible and delightful. He was in a world of trouble. He turned to his brother. “Do you have our plaid?”

“Aye, here.” James unraveled a strip of MacDonald tartan.

“Good.” This was it. The moment he’d not wished for, but now strangely did. He clasped his right hand with Anne’s right, and his left hand with her left then took a long, steadying breath. He looked into her eyes. She would be his wife, soon.

“It’ll be all right.” She squeezed his fingers. “This is meant to be. I wouldn’t be here otherwise.”

’Twas as if she spoke to his heart. “James will wrap the plaid around our hands and bind us together.” He nodded at his brother and James tightened the strap around their joined hands. The symbolic gesture had his pulse racing. Nay, this was simply a handfast, which was real enough, but that’s all. There would be no marriage in a year’s time.

HIGHLANDER’S CASTLE — My Newest Release. Historical Highlander Romance.

Hey everyone, thanks so much for joining me today. I couldn’t be more excited to bring you both a cover reveal and a book release in one.

I can’t believe HIGHLANDER’S CASTLE is now available. This is book one in my Highlander Heat series. The novella in the line (Highlander’s Captive) which released six weeks ago, shot into the bestsellers charts on Amazon’s US and UK sites, and continues to remain there. I’m still a-buzzing over that. So, if you picked up a copy, then thank you, thank you, thank you. You helped make a dream of mine come true.

The next two books in this series, Highlander’s Magic and Highlander’s Charm, will release later this year, and I can’t wait to bring you those stories. In the meantime, check out the swishy cover. I hope you like it.

Highlander’s Castle

HIGHLANDER’S CASTLE

Traveling through time…for a Highlander.

Anne MacLeod’s identical ancestor has made a wish on the Fairy Flag at Dunvegan Castle, one which sees the two young women swapping places in time and leaving Anne set to handfast with the very man her ancestor wished to escape. Only Anne sees the possibilities, because now she could change the future and ensure her parents never perished in the inferno which took their lives.

Highland warrior Alex MacDonald has made an agreement to handfast with Anne in order to bring a halt to the feud raging between their clans. The last thing he expects though is a woman claiming to come from the future, a woman who stirs him on a physical and emotional level to protect, and to even believe.

When Anne finds herself in her MacLeod chief’s presence, she chooses to go with him in order to leave a message for her parents. In full pursuit, Alex wages a battle of the heart, and of the very essence of time. Can he defy the odds as Anne is taken from him…to work his own magic and get her back?

Are you all ready for a tantalizing, toe-curling excerpt? I’ll try and melt away some of that winter chill. Here we are.

EXCERPT –

Anne rounded the corner of the stables with Mary. Before the waters of the glistening loch, a hundred shirtless warriors wielded claymores in a battle of strength against one another.

She searched through the half-naked men and found the very one she was after. Alex’s body was hard and packed with muscle, his shoulders and arms thick and strong. His chest held the finest smattering of hair, the same blond of his head. Below the plains of his glorious chest, his abs rippled, layer upon tight layer and all covered with a healthy sheen of sweat.

“He’s by far the tallest.” And Anne wanted every inch of that body back against hers.

“Aye, my son could never be missed in a battle.”

His powerful form was magnificent, and his command of the warriors he fought against a sight to behold.

Alex thrust his enormous sword against his opponent’s as if it were an extension of his arm and not a monstrous piece of steel. Now, this was exactly how he’d come about every one of those bulging muscles.

“I have to get closer.” She passed Mary her basket.

“I’ll hold Alan off.”

“Thank you. You make a wonderful friend.” Stepping forward, she focused on the man who’d made love to her so intensely throughout the night. He moved deftly, growing stronger with each strike of his claymore upon his opponent’s blade.

The two men circled each other, as if waiting to pounce for the next attack. Alex raised his weapon and—

“Lass, get back here now.” Alan tried to pass Mary who zigzagged in front of him.

“Damn,” Alex swore, barely missing his challenger’s blow. His gaze speared toward her. “What are you doing out here?”

She stared at his wide chest. Even the veins on his arms stood rigid and firm. “Sorry, the view was rather distracting.”

“You could get hurt.” He marched toward her, caught her arm then led her to the rear of the stables where all was quiet. “Lass, you cannae look at me like that.”

“Like what?” She touched his chest with her finger then swirled down over his wicked abs.

“Like that.” He picked her up, kicked open the door of a side room, set her down and slammed the door shut. His eyes burned a molten hue even in the dark confines of the cramped room. “Up with your skirts.”

“What?”

“Up. With. Your.” His plaid rose at the front, and all of its own accord.

“Oh, like that?”

He backed her against the wall. “Aye, like that, my sweet.”

HIGHLANDER HEAT — My Hot New Historical Highlander Series and Where I Get My Vision

Scottish Highlands_Urquhart_Castle

The Scottish Highlands and their beautiful old castles.

Traveling through time…for a Highlander.

There’s something so inspiring about these stunning castles and the history contained within their walls, and whether in ruins or not, my imagination runs rife. There are a ton of stories vying for attention in my head, and since I love the fantasy genre as well, I simply had to write a series where I get to send a twenty-first century heroine back to the past. In my HIGHLANDER HEAT line, expect tension, intrigue, and the sensational backdrop of the Highlands where it’s all set. This is historical romance where Highlanders have never battled so hard to defy the odds…and neither have their modern day heroines as they strive to find their own magic and beat the very essence of time.

I’m so thrilled to announce that the first glimpse into my Highlander Heat series kicks off with a novella that will be included in an anthology with some other awesome authors. HIGHLANDER’S CAPTIVE is the story of a young woman held captive by a Highland warrior, a man whose deep-seated honor may just turn him into becoming the captured instead.

This anthology will be FREE, and is compliments of those authors and the publishing house. I’ll keep you posted on the release date for this FREE book, but it will be sometime in early November, just a few more weeks away. Next year, book one in my series, HIGHLANDER’S CASTLE, releases, and just this week I’ve submitted the second book, HIGHLANDER’S MAGIC, for consideration. Of course next, I’m going to go straight into writing the third book, and I can’t wait to delve into this one.

Here’s a “sneak peek excerpt,” from book one, HIGHLANDER’S CASTLE (unedited).

To set the scene my modern day heroine, Anne MacLeod, has handfasted with Alex, her Highland warrior. Anne is just about to see exactly how Highlander men fight, and she’s accompanied by one of the woman from the clan as she goes in search of her new handfast husband.

–ooOoo-

They rounded the corner of the stables and there, before the waters of the glistening loch, a good hundred shirtless warriors wielded claymores in a battle of strength against one another.

Anne searched through the half-naked men and found the very one she was after. Alex’s body was hard and packed with muscle, his shoulders and arms thick and strong. His chest held the finest smattering of hair, the same color as the blond of his head. Oh, and below the plains of his glorious chest, his abs rippled, layer upon tight layer and all covered with a healthy sheen of sweat.

“He’s by far the tallest.” And Anne wanted every inch of that body back against hers.

“Aye, Alex could never be missed in a battle.”

His powerful form was magnificent, and his command of the warriors he fought against a sight to behold.

Alex thrust his enormous sword against his opponent’s as if it were an extension of his arm and not a monstrous piece of steel. Now, this was exactly how he’d come about every one of those bulging muscles.

“I have to get closer.” She passed Mary her basket.

“I’ll hold off Archie.”

She laughed. “Thank you. You make a wonderful friend.” Stepping forward, she focused her gaze on the one man who’d made love to her so intensely throughout the night. He moved deftly, growing stronger with each strike of his claymore upon his opponent’s blade.

The two men circled each other, as if waiting to pounce for the next attack. Alex raised his weapon and–

“Anne. Get back here now.” Archie tried to pass Mary who zigzagged in front of him.

“Damn,” Alex swore, barely missing his challenger’s blow. His gaze speared toward her. “What are you doing out here?”

She licked her lips as she stared at his wide chest. Even the veins on his arms stood rigid and firm. “Sorry, the view was rather distracting.”

–ooOoo–

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek from HIGHLANDER’S CASTLE, tentatively set for release September 2nd, 2014.

If you don’t want to wait nearly that long, and you’d like to read one of my books from my thrilling new Young Adult Fantasy Romance series then by all means, check out the book links below to pick up your copy of PROTECTOR or WARRIOR.

Here’s what one reviewer has just said about my latest release:

“Warrior held my attention from start to finish. Each obstacle Hope and Silas encountered had me jumping with joy, but often screaming in frustration. What made me fall in love with Warrior, is the heart thudding romance between the two main characters. It isn’t just a love story, it’s so much more. 5 Stars.” – Nocturne Romance Reads
