And a new novel is out by self-published romance maven and online best-seller D'Ancey LaGuarde, The Highland Laird’s Christmas Miracle, a super-sexy historical period drama with a supernatural twist, set in the highlands of history, when men were men and women were sassy Sassenachs escaping hard fates at the hands of their wicked step-half-uncles. Dora Pimberton is an orphaned heiress escaping a horrid Christmas fate at the hands of her wicked step-half-uncle, Lord Blitely. Escaping from his black coach in the dead of night after he spirited her to Gretna Green for a forced marriage to his loathsome son Creepington Blitely, she flees into the wet highlands, tearing her bodice in the process. Angus McAngus is the Laird of Loch Angus, known as the Devil Laird for his wicked eyebrows and history of violent fighting. While riding at night in a fearsome temper and mistaking Dora for a wet hussy, he sweeps her onto his magnificent stallion and angrily takes her to back his highland castle for shenanigans. As she explains that she is not a hussy he respects her boundaries and restrains his massive masculine urges, which leads her to relax against him in an unbearably provocative way with her ripe bottom. Angus and Dora surreptitiously from each other engage in some fraught frottage on the horse but she swoons from damp he angrily decides that he’ll never let her know that he almost came in his kilt from her wet butt. But when he gets her back to the castle and is confronted by her near-naked sassy Sassenachness, his heart is moved and he suggests that he rescue her ruined honor by offering her his hand in marriage. And after she slaps him sassily in the face, he locks her in a room and goes to think it off. But she finds out from a garrulous maid that the castle is in trouble. All of his armsmen are scruffy and the local village fears the Devil Laird because of the curse that was put upon the castle once by the romantic ghost of a witch who banged his grandfather. He must marry before Christmas to break the family curse. Will Dora’s perky pragmatism help these scruffy men diamond themselves out of their roughness? Will the Sassy Sassenach break the curse of the Devil Laird by falling in love with him before Christmas as the ghost witch foretold? Yes. But find out how in The Highland Laird’s Christmas Miracle, available in all figgy puddings.
