Author: Donna Kauffman
When it comes to love... When expert surfer Josie Griffin has a rare wipeout, she’s shocked to discover that a real-life treasure chest is to blame—one that contains a necklace hung with the biggest stone she’s ever seen. But that’s nothing compared to the shock she gets when she places the jewel around her neck. Instantly a mysterious little kilted man appears to inform her that the charm has betrothed her to an eighteenth-century Scottish laird! It’s not that Josie has anything against handsome lairds—or older men. But three hundred plus years may be stretching things a bit. After all, she has a career to consider. And besides, she’s sure the effects of her concussion will be wearing off any minute—until the minutes turn to hours...then days... A little charm goes a long way The spirit of Connal MacNeil has been waiting centuries for his betrothed to appear on Scotland’s roaring shores. Josie’s arrival with the MacNeil charm stone is his dream come true. Her passion is a fiery match to his own—and her powerful body is perfect for bearing the heir he plans. He bargained his soul for this last chance at prosperity, and he won’t take no for an answer. Unfortunately the lass doesn’t quite understand that destiny has bound them for all eternity. In fact, she seems determined to deny him at every turn—when she isn’t busy with her foolhardy need to go wave hunting. But it doesn’t take long for other, more earthly MacNeil charms to take hold. For Josie is only human—and Connal has waited long enough for the love affair of his lifetime to finally begin....

AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER - COMING SEPT. 15, 2021! The Ice King’s wintry grasp. A witch cursed. A deadly Chronicle. Contact with the Crystal Charm Stone caused deep changes in Dara Martin, leaving her with a power so great, it scares even the elders. This only happened once before in the centuries of the Kin’s rule, but the witch Meg’s fate is a secret buried deep in the past. Dara has no idea what her future might hold. Whisked away from Scarp to study under the Venerable Nacthan in Edinburgh, she’s forbidden to practice until the elders can understand her new magic. Yet she knows she now has the resources to rescue her mother from the Ice King’s grasp, if only she knew how to get there from here. A chance meeting leads her into the depths of the Edinburgh Vaults to Auld Meg, who’d been cursed to stone by the Kin to write the most dangerous chronicle of all. If Dara can break the spell and free the crone, she’ll be able to bridge realities to the Ice Kingdom. There’ll be hell to pay with the Kin. But only if she makes it back alive.

The Chumash Indians lived peacefully along the coast north of present-day Los Angeles until the Spanish drove most of them out and enslaved the rest. Black Wolf, a Chumash warrior, was once a captive of the Spanish priests and knows the newly arrived garrison is here to hunt him down. With the garrison comes Lucita, the new colonel's beautiful daughter. The more Lucita observes how the padres abuse the Chumash, the more disgusted she becomes. When Black Wolf approaches her one dark night, Lucita sees an opportunity to make a difference. Black Wolf sees a compassionate white woman. The effort to save Black Wolf's people will cost them both dearly, though not as much as the love blooming between them. REVIEWS: "Readers will be immediately drawn into this stirring novel.
