After I wrote the first two books in the series and before they were published, I traveled to the Isle of Raasay to check my facts. When I saw Eilean Fladda, I knew I had to set a story there, besides, it was Calum's son Ian's turn to be the hero!(less)

It had adventure and romance and all that wonderful highlander appeal.

“The softness of her touch, the emerald eyes gazing into his when they held hands and circled, attacked his defenses and flung them aside as if he were a helpless lad. If she'd come at him with a dagger, he might have let her stab him in the heart.”
Amy Jarecki, The Highland Henchman

“Eva’s chin ticked up. “Are you threatening me, m’lord?”
Scoffing, he gave an exaggerated eye roll. “Heaven forbid someone threaten William Wallace’s woman.”
Narrowing her eyes, she glared at him for a moment. Even if he’d seen her take the pictures, he wouldn’t have a clue what she was up to. And she’d turned the flash off. He had absolutely no grounds on which to make any accusations. With a dismissive nod she turned her attention back to Christina.
“But—” Comyn stepped closer, making the hackles on the back of Eva’s neck stand on end. “One day that big fella will fall out of favor, and then a pretty lassie such as yourself willna be so smug.”
“I beg your pardon, Lord Comyn?” Lady Murray threw her shoulders back. “You over inflate your station. Regardless of your noble birth, Miss Eva is the daughter of a knight, and I daresay she ought not be spoken to like a mere commoner.”
“Not to worry.” Eva flashed a wry grin. “I am very comfortable being identified as among the loyal servants of Scotland. Unlike some high-ranking gentry present whose questionable actions have proved their very hypocrisy, and their willingness to change allegiances on a whim only to protect their personal wealth.”
Amy Jarecki, In the Kingdom's Name

“Her breath caught when his erection shot to rigid. "Merciful Father, Ye're like a stallion with a mare in heat.”
Amy Jarecki, Beauty and the Barbarian

“Enya assessed him like a woman would a piece of fine cloth. "Rugged land for a rugged man.”
Amy Jarecki, The Highland Henchman

“The softness of her touch, the emerald eyes gazing into his when they held hands and circled, attacked his defenses and flung them aside as if he were a helpless lad. If she'd come at him with a dagger, he might have let her stab him in the heart.”
Amy Jarecki, The Highland Henchman

“I would like to know the given name of the woman who can kiss me so passionately she makes me want to climb to the roof tops and roar.”
Amy Jarecki, Return of the Highland Laird

“With a resounding bang, the door burst open. A crazed man gaped at her with piercing and anguished blue eyes. Grunting, he staggered inside and collapsed face first to the floor.

Max launched into a cacophony of barking, racing around the man as if the spaniel had made a conquest.

A cold wind chilled the cottage while Jane tried to steady the poker with both hands and point it at the burly form. He didn't move.

Max whimpered and licked the man's face. Then the dog curled up beside him.

Jane gaped. "Merciful father.”
Amy Jarecki, Return of the Highland Laird

“Another sharp pang stabbed him in the ribs and made him jolt with a grunt.

"Are you in pain?"

Alex smirked. 'I've been bludgeoned within an inch of me life, ye expecting me to jump up and dance a jig?”
