Julie Johnstone is a USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author. Scottish historical romance and Regency historical romance featuring highlanders and aristocrats are her love, and she enjoys creating both with a hefty dose of twists, plenty of heartstring tugs, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

Her books have been dubbed "fabulously entertaining and engaging," making readers cry, laugh, and swoon. Johnstone lives in Alabama with her very own lowlander husband, her two children - the heir and the spare, her snobby cat, and her perpetually happy dog.

In her spare time she enjoys way too much coffee balanced by super hot yoga, reading, and traveling.

I will be doing many more Highlander novels! I love writing in this era, and I just returned from a trip to Scotland where I went to the Isle of Skye, Edinburgh, and Oban to research for more of my novels. The second book in my Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts series went up for pre-order yesterday. It's titled Wicked Highland Wishes, and you can currently pre-order it on Amazon. All other vendors will follow in the next few days. I plan to write three more books in this series, and after that I'm sure another clan will call my name or perhaps secondary characters! Thank you so much for asking!(less)

“I want ye,” Lachlan choked out, surprised at his words and the desperate sound of his own voice. He did not look at Bridgette as he spoke but kept his gaze down to the ground as a war between honor and desire raged within him. “I want ye more than I want air to breathe.”
Julie Johnstone, Wicked Highland Wishes

“Guinevere’s lips started to tingle in expectation, and her heart beat at a dizzying, knee-weakening rate. She had to set her hands to his muscular shoulders so as not to drop into an embarrassing puddle of desire.
“Is that an invitation?” he asked, sounding every bit as devilish as he looked. If ever a man could lead a woman to be improper, it was him.
She couldn’t speak, her thoughts spun so quickly, but her fingers curled in silent entreaty, and the sensation in her lips moved slowly down to the pit of her stomach. She was going to expire if he didn’t kiss her.”
