More About the Author
Having worked at three newspapers within the state of Florida, she loved the entire creative process. Her forte was editing.
She enjoys reading, writing, and traveling. She traveled to Norway to do research for an upcoming Viking epic. The year before, she traveled to Ireland, where she fell in love with the beautiful countryside and its Viking history. She's also traveled to England, Spain, France, Hawaii and Mexico (the Mayans)in search of stories waiting to be told! Her absolute favorite place to visit, however, is the lovely country of Scotland. Its beauty is beyond words, and the friendliness of its people is incomparable. In Florida, she can often be found at Disney World with her grandchildren (although everyone knows they are merely an excuse for her to visit).
While doing genealogy research for her husband, she fell in love with Scottish history. That led to the novel HIGHLAND WISHES, a historical novel about Scotland's War for Independence. Its sequel, HER HIGHLAND ROGUE, was then released. She currently has several other novels in progress. KEEPER OF MY HEART, a novel about the Battle of Culloden and its aftermath is her current work in progress. THE POWER AND THE PASSION is the Viking epic. The third story in the Scottish War for Independence trilogy is also being worked on. In addition, Leanne has participated in several anthologies. The first, NO LAW AGAINST LOVE, is a romantic anthology of silly laws still on the books around the world. Proceeds from this anthology are being donated to breast cancer research and treatment. All her books can be viewed at her website.
She is currently a member of the National PEN Women in Letters, Romance Writers of America, Outreach International, Celtic Hearts Romance Writers, Hearts Through History Romance Writers, First Coast Romance Writers, Central Florida Romance Writers, Florida Writers of America, Historical Writers Association and The Mystic Castle.
She welcomes comments from her readers.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
This book was terrible. It has tons of editing errors that are so bad, there are times when you can't understand what is happening. When you can understand, you wish you couldn't. The story is BORING and REPETATIVE. The characters are annoying. The heroine spends the entire book balling her eyes out. ("Tears streaming down her face", "Her tear streaked face", "choking on a sob", "swallowing a sob"....) She turns psycho and hides from her husband, because she thinks he is her dad who abused her as a child. The "hero" finally turns her over his knee, in front of everyone in the castle, and spanks her for misbehaving. This was his way of showing her that his discipline will not be as harsh as her dad's was. There was nothing "romantic" about this story.
Our hero, Grant Drummond returned to his home after learning of his father's murder and was determined to slay the man responsible. That raid led him to the castle of Gerald Blackstone, where he slaked his vengeance - then unbeknownst to him, kidnapped the man's daughter, Victoria (Tory) Blackstone, thinking her a servant of the manor.
On the that fateful night, Tory was attempting her own escape from the cruel father who detested her so much, he'd gone ahead and betrothed her to an equally vile man who'd already killed two of his wives. Determined to find true love she was thwarted in her escape by falling into the hands of a `dreaded Scot'. Sworn off of love, Grant would often in the coming days question his unusual decision in taking so lovely a captive - a captive who both exasperated him and was slowly but surely capturing his heart.
--- Written with an undeniable love of Scotland, and her history, this author gifts the reader with a passionate tale of love between two people who the fates graciously brought together. Tory was a seriously wounded young woman and the authors treatment of the healing love Grant brought into her life was positively brilliant. You'll laugh, you'll cry in this deeply moving, and fully robust tale of the many struggles towards happily ever after. This is a fantastic Scottish historical romance that fans of the genre should not miss!!!
I am eager to read this author's other works.
The story takes place in Scotland during the time of William Wallace and before Culloden. It is filled with a rich sense of history. The pictures the author paints with her words about that time period makes you feel like you are there and living it with the characters.
The author did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. You felt their pain and their joys. She made you laugh with them and cry with them. I felt like the people in the story were my family.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in history or has a love for Scottish stories. Several of my friends have read my copy and feel the same way. I can not wait for her next book to come out. In fact after reading this book I am finding it very hard to get interested in any other book.
This book is a MUST read.
