The Highland Valiance Collection

By Fiona McKellar

Four adventurous medieval Scottish Highland romance stories filled with peril, twists, turns and love!

Held by a Highlander

When an English Lady, Georgina Bannerman, is kidnapped by Scottish Reivers, she finds the barbaric men loathsome. But while doing her best to make life difficult for the leader of her brutish guard, Alasdair McGregor, she soon discovers a softness in his eyes she didn’t know existed among such uncivilized men.

Alasdair has his own plans though. After taking his revenge on Sir Henry Drake through a ruthless ploy that uses Georgina as bait, the once cloistered English lady finds herself a prisoner in what used to be her betrothed’s castle.

If only she knew that her captor wanted her for more than just his thirst for revenge.

Pursued by the Shadow Knight

Being a beautiful redheaded heiress to a vast family fortune certainly has its perks, but Maigrait Vaus never thought it would get her abducted by her family’s rival clan, the despicable Colps.

Being forced to marry their loathsome son Rob is another downside to her position she never expected. But when the Colps’ are caught off guard by a highlander invasion, she seizes the opportunity to escape.

Her Father’s Protector

She spent her entire life in her clan’s castle being taught to be polite and civilized, being prepared for possible royalty, made to be the perfect lady of the castle. She was bred and raised for a single purpose—to be married off for her Laird father’s own political advantage.

When it is rumored that a neighboring clan is plotting to assassinate the Laird of Aldrich, Camy Crestwell’s family hires a bodyguard, Mathou Jameson, a rugged dirty highlander from the North with no manners and no filter, to hunt down the assassin.

Camy finds her prim and proper upbringing rudely disrupted by the rough highlander, but her heart is kindled with a surprising excitement when she is tasked with showing him around the castle. Perhaps having no filter and no discretion isn’t so bad after all—at least it’s a change from the mundane.

The Lady’s Smile

Gelis Ratry left the simplicity of her family's farm to find out what else life had to offer. And what better way to find out than moving in with her aunt Lorna, the innkeeper of a rowdy seaside tavern, The Lady's Smile, situated on the road from Inverness to Aberdeen. Helping out with the inn is certainly livelier than the farm, and a lot more dangerous. Gelis handles the daily characters and rough men of the tavern with finesse, but a troop of malicious soldiers might be a little more than she can handle.

Thomas Grant is a giant roving highlander. With half of his family lost in the war and the other half lost to the plague, he spends most of his time looking for the next drink. But despite his drinking habit, his heart is searching for a deeper passion. Good thing he shows up at The Lady's Smile just in time to fight off a band of despicable musketeers looking to have their way with Gelis.

The Highland Valiance Collection is a series of 4 standalone adventurous medieval Scottish romance novellas approximately 120,000 words long. A bonus story is included with the eBook version of the collection.
