Discover the Scottish Highlands at a time of rebellion…
“Maybe just maybe love will find you along the way and take you into a journey of romance with a smuggler and helping a cause bring freedom to your new home.”
Highland Arms, a Highland Chronicles Tale, is set five years after the ill-fated 1715 Scottish rebellion. A time when rumours abounded of new attempts, of shipments of arms and men from abroad, of hope and fear…
Betrayed by her brother’s lies, Catriona MacKenzie is banished from her home to her godmother’s manor in the remote Scottish Highlands. While her family ponders her fate, Catriona’s insatiable curiosity leads her straight into trouble–and into the arms of a notorious Highlander.
Five years after an ill-fated Jacobite rebellion, Rory Cameron works as a smuggler to raise money for the cause–until Catriona uncovers a plot against him and exposes his activities. Now, Rory is faced with a decision that could either save their lives or destroy both of them.
But he’s running out of time…

Highland Arms – an excerpt
The house was still, and the first light filtered through the gaps in the shutters when Catriona woke the next morning. Her mind returned to the previous night. It had been a quiet affair. Despite all her attempts at cheering Auntie Meg up, Angus’ callous remarks left her godmother in shock, her bubbly nature subdued. Neither was Rory Cameron in a mood for chat. Several times that evening she felt his gaze linger on her, any thoughts of his safely locked away behind those impenetrable eyes. Did he regret having her in the house? He might even convince Auntie Meg to send her back.
She could not allow that to happen. Not yet. One day, she had to return home—just not yet. Her father planned to find her a new suitor, someone willing to overlook her indiscretion. Pah!
Once he found such a paragon of society, he’d send for her. Most likely, the chosen suitor would be a rich man, but what else? Old, grizzled, and frail? Or young and arrogant, cast in the same mould as her brother? She liked neither option but then, it was not her decision to make. One thing was certain—love did not feature in her marriage contract.
