Aloha! My Boy Scouts have kept me busy. Over the weekend, they hosted a "skills" campout for the Cub Scouts. Tonight, my children helped me total the troop's popcorn order. We struggled with small print and Excel codes ... but we made it! Since Scouts has absorbed much of my time, I am just now reading Tracy Anne Warren's HER HIGHNESS AND THE HIGHLANDER - available today from Signet:
From New York Times bestselling author Tracy Anne Warren comes the second novel in an enchanting new trilogy about three princesses brought together by friendship and fate. This is Princess Mercedes’s story…
While journeying home from Scotland, Princess Mercedes of Alden’s coach is set upon and her cousin and personal guard are killed. Barely escaping with her life, she seeks help at a nearby inn. But with no money and looking little better than a beggar, the townsfolk think her claims of being a princess to be nothing more than a far-fetched tale. Utterly forsaken, Mercedes wonders what is to become of her.
After years of soldiering, dispossessed Laird Daniel MacKinnon is finally coming home. At an inn he is confronted by a bedraggled young woman claiming to be of royal blood. Daniel doesn’t believe her wild tale, but when she asks for his protection, he agrees to serve as her bodyguard and escort her to London.
But Mercedes is still being pursued by ruthless hunters whose motivations remain unclear. As the danger increases, so does the desire she and Daniel feel for each other, until the two of them must face the greatest danger of all—falling in love.

The weather was just like Scotland!
Ah, sounds like Laird Daniel MacKinnon was a Boy Scout in his youth, helping Grannies cross the street and princesses evade nefarious assassins. I am looking forward to reading HER HIGHNESS AND THE HIGHLANDER on the beach! Mary Gramlich, the Reading Reviewer, will post her review on Wednesday at this link. To celebrate HER HIGHNESS AND THE HIGHLANDER, I am giving away a Royal Hawaiian gift pack, including a:
- 2013 Big Island calendar, home of Hawaii's Highness, King Kamehameha, and his beloved Highlands, Mauna Kea.
- Variety of Hawaiian fruit tea ... as tea is the essence of Regency England.
