Christmas stories!

I can hardly believe we are at the end of August! Here in Canada kids go back to school at the beginning of September, but I know it’s even earlier in many other places.

Even though it’s still summer, I have been deep into researching and writing Christmas stories! One is a Christmas novella that will be part of a multi-author box set, and another a standalone Christmas novel. Members of my Facebook group have provided some input into the characters, and it has been so much fun to write.

It wouldn't be Christmas without a little gift, would it? I saw that The Wicked One by Danelle Harmon is free today! It's one of my favorite historical romances, so I highly recommend it.

While I have so much fun Christmas information to share, August may be a bit early yet. So today let's discuss consummation of the marriage and annulments. Unlike you may sometimes hear, non-consummation was not grounds for annulment. There were only three grounds for annulment: identity fraud; incompetence (one person being underage (21) without her parent's consent or insane); or impotence, which was an interesting one to prove.

With love,

Temptation of Fire / The Rebel's Purpose

By Audrey Adair

"Temptation of Fire" is the steamy version of the book while “The Rebel’s Purpose" is the sweet and wholesome one.

Roderick McDougall thought crossing the seas would fulfill the restlessness growing inside him. He now longs to return home to his beloved Highlands but is too proud to admit to his father the error of his ways. Then one day he chases down and catches a thief, and nothing will ever be the same again.

For years, Gwen Malone has known only one life -- following her father’s outlaw gang around the Prairies. When she is captured by a rugged Highlander, she finds she has to fight to keep him from capturing her heart as well.

When Roderick is assigned with the duty of returning Gwen and her father to Scotland, he wonders whether it will be the answer to all of his problems, or the beginning of an even bigger one. As they arrive in the Highlands, will their fiery attraction to one another lead to the love they never knew they needed, or will Gwen’s past force them apart?
