I can hear the Mother Superior from The Sound of Music singing Climb Every Mountain. I did it, folks! I made it to the summit and hit Publish! Wow, it is a new and strange and wonderful feeling. I keep pointing at the computer screen and saying "I did that." A very big thank you to my cover designer and friend at Glass Slipper Web Design, my beta readers, editors, critiquers, all the authors on the self publishing loop who give their knowledge and experience so willingly and my family--the husband who ALWAYS encourages, the 4 "kids" who are my cheerleaders and the "Sistahs" who have my back.

Release: July 15, 2015

With his marriage to Maggie Connor, William McLaren, the Laird of Gloaming Castle, erases a war debt between their families. But he never expected his new wife to be such a spirited curious lass. A woman as unconstrained as her red curls, who forces his quiet secretive existence out of the shadows and makes him wonder if he has neglected his life, and his castle, for too long.

No one asked Maggie if she wanted to be the Lady of the place everyone calls Gloomy Castle or be married to its prickly enigmatic laird. But in this world, a woman's life is not shaped by fairness and her power is nonexistent. Now, she is determined to forge the best life for herself in a strange realm and establish an accord with her indecipherable husband all while helping the last Lady of Gloaming find peace...even if that Lady is a ghost.
