I have always loved fairy tales and all things Scottish. There's no place on earth as magical as Scotland—the history, the landscape, the folklore, the culture...it adds up to the perfect place to set a story or retell a fairy tale.
The Highland Fairy Tales re-imagine your favorite fairy tales with a sexy, funny, realistic and romantic Scottish twist, and begins with a laird with a wee bit of a problem...
A reimagining of Snow White
When Laire MacLeod's father marries again, his lovely new bride casts a dangerous spell over the MacLeods of Iolair. Only Laire, the fairest of all Laird MacLeod's lovely daughters, is untouched by her stepmother's evil schemes...
Iain Lindsay sold his soul to try and save his dying wife, and now he serves as huntsman to the new Lady MacLeod. For years he's turned a blind eye to her wicked activities, but one look at Laire MacLeod's delicate beauty makes him question his dark past. Ordered to kill Laire, he instead sets her free, only to be ordered to pursue her when she flees to Edinburgh for help.
But Edinburgh is a dangerous place for even the bravest Highland lass, and Laire soon finds herself in trouble. Rescued by a band of wee thieves, she begs their help to help her save her family. But the huntsman is on her trail, and Laire must choose to keep running or to trust the enemy she soon grows to love. But will their love be enough to break her stepmother's evil hold, or will it doom them forever?

There's an old Highland legend that says seals can come to shore, shed their skins and walk among human folk. If a man finds a selkie lass's skin and hides it from her, he can keep her for his own. But if she discovers her skin, she'll return to the sea forever...
Once upon a time, there was a lass who fell from a ship into the cold water of the sea on the way to her own wedding...
Malcolm MacDonald is a lawyer in Edinburgh when he unexpectedly inherits his father's title of Laird of Dunbronach, a place Malcolm has not seen since he left as a small child. He must face a clan in crisis that desperately needs a leader, but doesn't trust the man they see as a Lowlander and an outsider. They've brought Malcolm to Dunbronach to make a magic wish, which according to an ancient legend, they believe will restore the clan to health and good fortune. They insist he must cast aside his English fiancee and marry a Highland lass, but there's one rule—no MacLeods.
One day, while walking along the beach, Malcolm sees something in the water, and finds a young woman, half drowned and barely alive, and wearing a MacLeod plaid. To save her from the revenge of his clan, Malcolm hides the telltale garment.
When the lovely lass wakes, she cannot remember a thing, including her name. The fanciful MacDonalds decide she must be a selkie.
As new dangers threaten the MacDonalds of Dunbronach, the lass from the sea charms them, helps them, and teaches Malcolm some very important lessons about how to be a Highlander and a laird. And as he falls deeper and deeper under the spell of the lovely lass from the sea, he keeps the one secret that could destroy them both—her connection to the terrible, barbaric, enemy MacLeods.
When the secret comes out, and she finds her plaid and remembers who she is, Malcolm is forced to make a difficult choice to win her back, facing his darkest fears and his worst enemy for a chance at true love.

Once upon a time, there was a Scottish pirate, the fine, handsome son of a clan chief. On his bold voyages, Dair Sinclair tempted fate once too often, and when the English finally captured him, he faced unspeakable torments. Now, Dair can't forget, or heal from the terrible injuries. He's known as the Madman of Carraig Brigh, a raving, scarred, terrifying beast. His father seeks a healer for his son and heir without success, until a dark prophecy directs him to find a virgin to save his son.
Fia MacLeod is easy to overlook among her lovely sisters, despite being every bit as pretty, since she bears scars and a limp from a terrible childhood accident. Fia has a remarkable talent for healing wild creatures, and when the chief of the Sinclairs comes looking for a virgin healer, she goes to aid the Madman of Carraig Brigh. She faces anger, pain, and suspicion from Dair, but there is attraction there as well, and a kindred understanding of what its like to be lost, scarred, and afraid.
As Dair and Fia draw closer, and love and desire grow stronger, others seek revenge for Dair's past deeds, and Fia is accused of black magic and witchcraft. Only with courage and true love can Fia save herself and the man she loves, and restore the heart of the man she loves...
