Book Spotlight! THE RUNAWAY HIGHLANDER by R.L. Syme

For years and years, the Highland Renegades characters have been romping around in my head. The whole story started off with a scene. A Highlander on a rainy road, forced off his path by a carriage carrying a brooding father and his daughter, freshly returned from having spent most of her formative years in France. Of course, this scene hasn’t been in a book yet (although it might), but the characters have deepened and become real to me.

This is my favorite thing about series books. The characters, rather than one 250-page book, now last for many books. We get to know them, we see them grow and change, fall in love, get hurt, be happy… just like the real people in our lives. I love the continuity series family. They become like real family to me.

What is your favorite part of a series?

If you like series, you can check out my Highland Renegades series. I have a new book out, The Runaway Highlander

Anne de Cheyne has a choice. She can play the dutiful daughter and allow her mother to sell her to a greasy English sheriff, or she can take control of her own life and find her own match. After a frightening run-in with her promised husband reveals a dark secret, she makes a desperate choice. Flight.

Aedan Donne needs easy money and no-questions-asked. When Milene de Cheyne offers him enough to pay all debts, requests complete silence, and pays half up front, just for a simple recovery, he can't believe his luck… until he meets his mark. Anne’s beauty and passion ignite something Aedan can’t ignore, even as she leaves him in the dust. Suddenly, he finds himself wanting to capture the runaway Highland lady for himself.
