Hi Everyone! I have been quiet lately but very busy! April 18th is the release of the much anticipated FORBIDDEN HIGHLANDS Anthology, a collection of stellar authors that you don't want to miss! This limited time set will only be available for six weeks and then will be gone forever.
My contribution,THE MAIDEN OF MORAY, is a story that sprang out of my personal geneaology research that began a little over a year ago when my husband decided we should to do the DNA test from ancestry.com. Although I knew I was of English and French descent, I had no clue about my Scottish and Irish ancestry that comprises 44% of my DNA! After this discovery, I was on fire to learn more of these ancestors I knew nothing about. My research, thus far, has taken me all the way back to the origin of the clan Ross in the 12th century Scottish Highlands! Furthermore, it has inspired me to write an entire Scottish series that will span six centuries!
THE MAIDEN OF MORAY also serves as a prequel to my upcoming SONS OF SCOTLAND SERIES that I will be writing under my original pen name of EMERY LEE.I am be excited to share much more about this series as soon as the pre-order links are available!
THE MAIDEN OF MORAY by VICTORIA VANE
He’s a man without a past… Abandoned at a monastery as a young child, Alexander serves two masters—God and the fading memories of his past life—the one he never got to live. As he nears the day to take his vows, he’s sent on a last sojourn into the real world to test his faith, and possibly his manhood. But one playful kiss in a moment of weakness awakens a dangerous desire.
She’s a woman who doesn’t know her own heart… Born from the line of two kings, Sibylla is abandoned by her sire as a child and then ruled illegitimate. Though she lives a happy life under her uncle’s protection, Sibylla craves more. But the hot-tempered beauty never imagines her fate lies in the hands of Alex, a would-be monk who hardly embodies her idea of a pious man of God.
When dark secrets from the past come to light, and their destinies entwine, will Alex choose the safe and secure path he knows, or will he reject holy orders to embrace Sibylla and the life he was meant to live?
