Award-winning author Jayne Castel writes epic Historical and Fantasy Romance. Her vibrant characters, richly researched historical settings and action-packed adventure romance transport readers to forgotten times and imaginary worlds.

Jayne is the author of the Amazon bestselling THE BRIDES OF SKYE, THE SISTERS OF KILBRIDE and THE IMMORTAL HIGHLAND CENTURIONS series. In love with all things Scottish, Jayne also writes romances set in Dark Ages Scotland ... sexy Pict warriors anyone?

I love all my books ... and they were all my favs while writing them ... but I would say that my favorite series so far has been THE IMMORTAL HIGHLAND CENTURIONS, and MAXIMUS is probably my favorite book (for the moment!). That series was just so much fun, on so many levels, and Maximus was such a fascinating (and incredibly sexy) hero. :-)(less)
