And fall is in the air! At least it is here in Southern California. The kids are back in school, and I’m getting down to some serious reading (and writing, too!). I had a release in the Highland Knights series in the summer, and there’s another one coming this fall! It’s HER WICKED HIGHLANDER, a novella in the series featuring the newest Highland Knight, Max, and my first Scottish heroine in the series, the headstrong (and very fun to write) Aila. This story was originally published in the USA Today bestselling anthology CAPTURED BY A CELTIC WARRIOR, and I’m so excited it’s now coming out as a standalone! Anyway, happy fall, everyone. Here’s to Pumpkin Spice Lattes and cooler weather! <3
Captured by a Celtic Warrior is out today, and it is already on the bestseller lists at Amazon, iTunes, and Barnes & Noble. Kris Kennedy, Eliza Knight, Vonda Sinclair, and I are so thankful to all the readers who’ve bought the collection. If you haven’t gotten it yet, now is the time, because it’s only $0.99, and this weekend it’s going up to its regular price of $4.99.
What I really loved about working on Captured by a Celtic Warrior with Vonda, Kris, and Eliza, was the opportunity to work as a team in developing this collection. Writing is an isolating business, perfect for us introverts, but sometimes it’s inspiring to collaborate with others, and it certainly was in this case! I really loved how we worked together to hammer out the details of the King Richard Dagger, and how our stories follow it through the ages. It all starts with Kris’s story in 1193, then Eliza’s takes place in 1306, Vonda’s in 1619, and I end in the Regency period in 1816. The politics and lives of the times we’ve written about are vastly different, but in all of them, the human condition is the same. There is good and evil, life and death, and the King Richard Dagger threads them all together. I’m so proud of this collection–it was a blast to put together and I’m so excited about its release!
Here’s a list of the things I’m doing to celebrate the release:

Captured by a Celtic Warrior, a collection of novellas written by Jennifer Haymore, Eliza Knight, Vonda Sinclair, and Kris Kennedy. It was so fun to get together with three other historical romance authors and write about the heroes who possess a legendary dagger through the ages!
From the back cover: “Bestselling and award-winning authors bring you four never-before-published novellas of searing passions that span the ages.
Four fierce warriors from Ireland and Scotland…
Four heroines determined to resist them…
One dagger steeped in the blood and treachery of kings.”
My novella is called HER WICKED HIGHLANDER. It’s part of the Highland Knights series and features a new knight, Max White, with orders to keep a young woman safe–only this Highland lass gives him a little more trouble than he bargained for…
It releases February 16 and is up for preorder on Amazon!
