Aloha to Amanda Scott and THE SECRET CLAN: The Complete Series



On this day in 1954, the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) purchased Fair Isle, a remote island between Shetland and Orkney.  From its website (link),

Famous for birds, knitwear and historic shipwrecks, Fair Isle is a tiny jewel of an island lying half-way between Orkney and Shetland.
It’s one of Britain's most successful small communities, pioneering projects in wildlife tourism, windpower and sustainable management of the environment.

Just another place to visit in Scotland.   

Sigh.  Scotland.

Amanda Scott, the grand mistress of Scottish historicals, is celebrating the release of THE SECRET CLAN: The Complete Series:

The complete series-in one ebook collection!

Abducted Heiress: Molly Gordon was the wealthiest lass in Scotland-before she and her sister were spirited away and separated. On the misty island where she's held captive, Molly longs for a hero brave enough to rescue her.

Hidden Heiress: Elspeth can recall nothing of her past. Her lonely life of drudgery in Farnsworth Tower is interrupted when a mysterious man seeks refuge at the estate . . . and helps her uncover her true identity.

Highland Bride: On her way home to the Highlands, Barbara McRae is kidnapped. A masked swordsman known as the Black Fox comes to her rescue-and leaves her with a kiss that haunts her dreams . . .

Reiver's Bride: When reivers swoop down on Lady Anne Ellyson one moonlit night, she discovers that she knows their devilishly handsome leader as a man from her clan-a man who has been declared dead.
