Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts PLUS 'The Last MacKlenna' Cover Reveal

I'm working hard to get The Last MacKlenna ready to launch this weekend. 

BLURB: When Meredith Montgomery, President of Montgomery Winery in Napa, California, discovers she might be facing breast cancer a second time, she buries herself in a working vacation in Scotland. Launching a new wine is a risky and costly venture, and she can’t afford to fail. But her attention is distracted by Elliott Fraser, a handsome, irresistible, and irascible Scotsman.

Elliott Fraser is CEO of MacKlenna Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. He is in control of everything in his life, except his demons, and a leg injury that refuses to heal. When a multi-million-dollar Thoroughbred is murdered, he believes an old nemesis is out to destroy the farm. It’s the worst possible time to meet a woman who loves Scotland, horses, and a wee half when she’s thirsty—a woman he thought didn’t exist.

As their health and work problems tear them apart within days of meeting, their passion refuses to be quieted setting off an explosive chain of events that threaten their hopes and dreams.

Few things are more devastating than a broken heart, and they will discover that one careless moment has left them with an impossible choice to make: Life or Death. 

This riveting story continues the saga of romance across generations of the MacKlenna family that began with The Ruby Brooch. Readers will love how the two story lines are intricately woven together to reveal Kit MacKlenna's lasting legacy in this fascinating and addictive series.
