I'm really excited to share this beautiful new cover by Damonza for Highland Blood, The Celtic Blood Series II. This is the second novel in this series, which was formerlly titled The Saga of Lady Macbeth. We did a little rebranding on the series and I love the new look. Book II picks up right where Book 1 left off. Corbie has just left the enchanted world of Ynes Verleath and believes she's on her way to reunite with Banquo. Since this novel is based on a Shakespeare play, I'm sure you won't be too surprised when things don't go as planned.
Here is a description for Book II:
Scotland, 1032—When a marriage contract calls Gruoch away from Ynes Verleath, she leaves with the hope she'll be reunited with Banquo. But fate has different plans. Lies, betrayal, and violence await her. Set on a collision course with destiny, Gruoch soon finds herself thrust into the arms of another man. Her dreams shattered and rattled by unexpected brutality, it becomes more than Gruoch can handle. The raven, however, is no stranger to carnage. Fierce power grows inside Gruoch, and more than anything, it craves bloody revenge.
Fans of Outlander and The Mists of Avalon will relish this sweeping Scottish Historical Fantasy that tells the tale of Gruoch, a woman struggling to escape her fate without blood on her hands.
Continue the Celtic Blood Series with Book II, Highland Blood.
I am knee deep in edits on this novel right now, but it will release in February and is available for pre-order on Amazon. Per her usual self, Corbie is giving me all kinds of trouble. I'm pretty sure she wants me to rewrite this novel the way she wants it. That said, I've let her win on one point which I'll cover in the author's note in this books. Let's see who wins in the end :)
