About the Author

Raised in California, Laura likes it hot, which explains why she ended up in Arizona via such diverse places as Japan, Maine, and Florida, and many more places in between. After retiring from the US Navy, she found a niche working for land management agencies, including the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Though she has held many jobs around the world, her favorite was working and living in Grand Canyon National Park. Working (and eating) in New Orleans was a close second. You will find many of her books are set against the rich backdrops provided by coastal Louisiana and northern Arizona.

When asked how she started writing, Laura tells of waking on Boxing Day a few years ago, with a woman named Elena MacFarland yammering in her dreams, demanding her story be told. Despite never attempting to write fiction before that morning, Laura ignored all of the holiday visitors and the Highland Destiny series was born. She doesn’t believe it was a coincidence that the great grandmother who died when Laura was just a baby was named Elena MacFarland. Destiny does play a hand.

Laura became a full-time writer in 2012, and now she spends her time writing, watching her Arizona Diamondbacks, and working on her very own version of the Willow Springs Ranch in northwestern Arizona. She is a multi-published author of erotic romance, mystery, and urban fantasy and her books can be found at all major online retailers.

Very good book, characters seemed well thought out, involved plot twists added to the story line and you know there is going to be a lot more involved either now or later. I was so upset by the last turn of events I had to read the end to make sure everything turned out before I could go back and take my time reading the last 2 chapters. Haven't had to do that for a long time. I'll be ordering the next 2 today.

I really liked the story line scotland, werewolves, druids, suspense. The first couple sex scenes were really steamy but then it was more sex than story so it got pretty boring. Then Elana cried at EVERYTHING! Every romantic thing he did she teared up or cried. Can't she just be happy with out tears? There are two parts to this book the beginning written by a talented authur and the middle and end written as if by a horny teenager. I won't buy the rest of the series. 2.5 Stars

It was okay. Don't feel compelled to buy the next ones though. Some good ideas but not all plot twists were explained even though the characters moved on. Confusing at times. Sex scenes hot at first but so numerous they got old and I started to skip them. Glad i read it but not sad I finished it.

Very good read, so thorough with the back story and explanations. Lots of action, loads of sexiness and enough scottish brogue to get your heart pumping! Very good start to what promises to be a great series! I gave it 4 stars because there were a few grammatical errors but those look more like a lack of good editing team. SR

I got excited bc it said highland and I'm a sucker for a highlander Scotland story, but it was too sexual. The plot was good but the sex scenes were too graphic for me. At any rate it's free and I would have been highly pissed if I paid 3.99 like the rest of the books in the series; which I won't be purchasing.

The CONSTANT sex scenes grew to be a little much. I mean, does anyone not on drugs have sex 5 times in a night? Then again the next morning? All these dire things are happening around them, the fate of the world hangs in the balance and all they can think about is getting each other naked. Be real!!

This was a good read, Elena made me crazy in part of this with her failing to remember or mention a couple of really important things. There is a lot of pretty graphic sex in this book but I enjoyed it, a bit of a time travel/fantasy combo. Anxious to read the next in the series.

This was a fantastic tale of the highlander with a twist. The story was very easy to read and was very interesting. The characters were well developed and easy to enjoy. I like how they didn't know what their roles were and ended up learning things along the way. Very enjoyable read and look forward to reading book 2 and 3. Highly recommend!

I love reading about Scotland & really cannot resist that gorgeous, huge man in a kilt (jeans, suit, (nothing?)) - however, I am so ticked when I read a book that reads like I'm stupid & won't notice one of the main characters is an idiot! So she is an attorney, smart (if naive) & can search on wolves, know about original clan & Scottish law but doesn't think to tell the hunk-a-scottish love about the secret stuff she found that is so obvious he needs? Oh & yeah the weird thing she did with her hands to get the old hidden door to open? I want this fixed before I pick up the book in the next minute or so. Thanks. Now the new twist on shape shifters is great & the book has a lot to say for itself & want to give a good review. Want to.

Faolan and Elana's story was very entertaining twist of love, mystery , Druid and Fae. I couldn't stop reading the book, it weaved a spell of enchantment over the story. The only thing I got tired of was so many sex scenes . I got where I would skip them to get on with the answers to the suspence of the plot. I will definately read the sequel books.

Author could have written alot better story with more story and left out the over abundance of the micro detailed sex scenes. Got rather boring so i just skipped the last dozen or so sex scenes

*Great beginning but it changed toward the middle.. Started as a wonderful story then became more involved in sex than progressing the story.. I also felt some of the characters acted against their nature.. Worth the read but I will not be buying the rest of the series..

I enjoyed this book. Great story and characters. If you enjoy books with hot sex then this book is for you. I wished that authors would leave somethings to the imagination. This book would have been better with it toned down a bit, just my opinion. I will continue to read the next book in the series.

I was impressed I have not read this author before, the story was captivating. There was actually a point in the book where you thought it was over and goes in another adventure. This book has it all great sex, heart rending sadness, joy, bad guys to really hate, sexy somewhat arrogant leading man. This is a must read

The plot idea is excellent, the characters interesting. My only complaint is that the storytelling is a little overblown sometimes, with the plotline progressing at a rate that doesn't feel quite right. More like the author had to explain a and b in order to get to c, and did so as quickly as she could, rather than having the story progress at its own pace.
