Highlander Betrayed – Releases August 6th!
“Laurin Wittig has a gift for writing fresh, romantic, passionate Scottish medievals. HIGHLANDER BETRAYED is one of the most compelling medieval historical romances I have ever read. It has everything: romance, smooth writing, an unpredictable plot, and a wee bit of the paranormal. I loved it!” — Colleen Gleason, New York Times bestselling author
“Laurin Wittig weaves a lush tale, filled with characters you love, and set in a world you never want to leave.” ~ Tanya Anne Crosby, New York Times Bestselling Author
Highlander Betrayed, the first book in my brand new, never before published, Guardians of the Targe trilogy, releases on August 6th in ebook, paperback, and audio! Preorder Highlander Betrayed (Guardians of the Targe) now!
Here’s a little about this book:
Deep in the rugged Scottish countryside lies the Highland Targe, an ancient relic that, along with its Guardian, shields the heart of the Highlands.
For centuries, the MacAlpin clan has watched over the Targe, but Lady Elspet, the current Guardian, is gravely ill. Her niece Rowan MacGregor, the rock of the family, is doing everything she can to hold her clan together when she meets Nicholas fitz Hugh.
Handsome and charming, Nicholas quickly joins clan life—yet he is not what he seems. A cunning spy, Nicholas is charged by the king of England with stealing the Targe, part of a plot to break the Scottish rebellion.
Despite his loyalty to the king, Nicholas finds himself falling for beautiful Rowan. When Lady Elspet’s health worsens and the Guardianship is in question, Nicholas must choose between the king’s will and his own. Can he betray his king and mission? Or will he turn on the woman he loves and the family he has come to care for?
As in The Devil of Kilmartin, I’ve pulled some paranormal aspects into this story, but I’ve tried to be true to the mythology and superstition of the culture, as well as the history. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
