Overview

Action, adventure, and romance combine in a tale of fire and ice during the age of the princesses, when all of Scotland's warring kings had to be the sons of princesses, and the women fought alongside their men. Using her keen intelligence and lightning fast reflexes, Princess Bera has bested all twelve of her big brothers in combat, but must use all her keen intelligence and skill to free nine of them from a rival clan's dungeon before the Dark Knight can do so--and claim Bera as his reward. In a world where trust can spell disaster, both Bera and the Dark Knight guard their hearts, but eventually find a treasure worth more than riches and power.

Meet the Author

New York Times best-selling author Haywood Smith did not start writing till she was forty. Seven years of learning, writing, and rewriting later, St. Martins Press published the first of six critically acclaimed, best-selling historical novels about "strong women, hunky heroes, accurate history, and upbeat endings."

After a devastating divorce left her financially destitute, she switched to writing humorous Southern women's fiction about Baby Boomer women who help each other through their various trials with creativity, loyalty, and lots of fun, earning Haywood a place on the New York Times best seller list. ("I sent my ex a thank-you note.")

Haywood adored her mother-in-law, who lived across the street for twenty-five years, then moved in at Haywood's invitation after the divorce. In her mother-in-law's memory, Haywood wrote a fun, helpful handbook titled THE TWELVE SACRED TRADITIONS OF MAGNIFICENT MOTHERS-IN-LAW.

Haywood loves to do stand-up comedy about her life (It's been wild.) and waives her speaker's fee for women's charity fundraisers, Red Hat regional meetings, and Friends of the Library groups. Contact her at with EVENT in the subject line for particulars.

She also loves to hear from her fans at and personally answers all her e-mails.

Nine of Princess Bera's brothers came in peace, but were betrayed and captured by Lord Drust. He holds them in his dungeon. Her three remaining siblings offer Lady Bera in marriage to anyone who frees their siblings.

As good a warrior as any of her brothers, Bera decides to try to liberate her brothers so she would not have to marry anyone. She disguises herself as a weaver to gain entrance to Drust's manor. At the same time Curran the Dark Knight also goes after the prize. Though attracted to one another, Curran and Bera remain rivals until he persuades her they need to team up to succeed. She reluctantly agrees to marry him and work with him to free her brothers. Bera knows that whether they prevail or fail, her life will never be the same.

HIGHLAND PRINCESS is an entertaining Medieval Scottish romance starring a compassionate male knight and an intrepid warrior princess. The story line never eases for a moment as the audience obtains a glimpse of life for adult females. Though the ease in which the hero and heroine capture their enemy is a bit disconcerting, the tale shows that Haywood Smith, author of DANGEROUS GIFTS and SECRETS IN SATIN, is clearly a rising star.
