Read full description of the books:
William Wallace, a rettenthetetlen skót szabadságharcos halott. Skócia az angolok igáját nyögi. Klánok ragadnak kardot klánok ellen. A remény lángja azonban még nem hunyt ki. A skót Robert the Bruce úgy dönt, a Felföld és a Hebridák legendás harcosaiból titokban megkísérli a valaha volt legkiválóbb csapatot megszervezni, hogy egyesült erejüket felhasználva szerezze meg a trónt, és ezzel ismét kivívja Skócia függetlenségét...
Arthur Campbell kivételes harcos. Pengeéles érzékeiről híres, és ha a helyzet úgy kívánja, felderítőként észrevétlenül beszivárog bármely csapat állásai mögé. Épp ezért Robert the Bruce különös feladattal bízza meg: férkőzzön az ellenséges MacDougall klán soraiba, amelynek vezetője nem más, mint Arthur apjának kegyetlen gyilkosa. A szívében bosszút forraló harcos azonban nem várt akadállyal találja magát szemben - egy mézszőke hajú szirén vonja bűvkörébe, aki történetesen a klánfőnök lánya. A közelgő háború veszélye egymás karjába sodorja őket, míg végül a harcosnak el kell döntenie, mi a fontosabb számára: a bosszú vagy a szerelem...
A Felföld rettegett fiai-sorozat harmadik darabját tartja kezében az olvasó: a rettenthetetlen harcosok és szerelmeik kalandos és buja történetei folytatódnak.

Read information about the authorWhat do you get when you mix a legal career, a baseball career, motherhood, and a love of history with a voracious reader? In my case, a Historical Romance Author.
Like most writers, I’ve always loved to read. Growing up in California there was always plenty to do outside, but all too often I could be found inside curled up with a book (or two or three). I started with the usual fare: The Little House on the Prairie series, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit, Watership Down, Nancy Drew, and everything by Judy Blume. Once I cleared off my bookshelf, I started swiping books from my mom. Some, like Sidney Sheldon’s The Other Side of Midnight, probably weren’t the most appropriate choice for a pre-adolescent—although they were definitely illuminating. I can still remember the look of abject horror on my mom’s Catholic-girl-face when I asked her what a virgin was. After that rather brief conversation, she paid a little closer attention to what had disappeared off her book shelf, and steered me in the direction of Harlequin and Barbara Cartland romances. I was hooked. I quickly read through the inventory of the local library and was soon buying bags of romances at garage sales.
In high school, with the encouragement of my father (who I think was a little concerned about the steady diet of romances), I read over eighty of the Franklin Library’s One Hundred Greatest Books ever written—including Tolstoy, Confucius, Plato, and the entire works of Shakespeare. Some of them were tough going for a teenager, but the experience would prove an invaluable foundation for college. After reading War and Peace, I wasn’t easily intimidated.
For some reason Monica decided to go into writing and not fashion.
After graduation, I loaded up the VW (Jetta not Bus) and trekked down I-5 to attend the University of Southern California, majoring in Political Science and minoring in English (see why all that reading helped!). I joined the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, and when I wasn’t studying or at football games, did my best to support the local bartending industry. Ah, the good old days.
With that kind of fun, four years of college wasn’t quite enough. So leaving Tommy Trojan behind, I traveled back up north to Palo Alto for three more years of study at Stanford Law School. Once I survived the stress of the first semester, law school proved to be one of the best times of my life—garnering me a JD, life-long friends, a husband, and an unexpectedly intimate knowledge of baseball. (See “The Baseball Odyssey” below).
Law School was also where I fell in love with Scotland. In my third year, I took a Comparative Legal History class, and wrote a paper on the Scottish Clan System and Feudalism. So I immediately dropped out of law school and went on to write Scottish Historical Romances…well no, not quite. You see, I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer. My father was a lawyer, I was a “poet” (i.e., not into math), and I love to argue. It seemed natural.
So I finished law school, got married, passed the CA bar, moved to Minnesota (with a few stops along the way), waived into the MN bar, worked as a litigator for a few satisfying years, moved back to CA, had a couple of kids, realized that a legal career and being a single parent for most of the year (due to husband's career) would be extremely difficult, and THEN decided to sit down and write.
And how did I end up writing romance? It’s not as divergent as it seems. What I loved about being a lawyer are the same things I love about being a writer—research and writing. The only thing missing is the arguing, but that’s what a husband and kids are for, right?
