Release day: The Highlander’s Forbidden Mistress

30 June 2020

Today is the official release of The Highlander’s Forbidden Mistress by Anna Campbell (The Lairds Most Likely, book 7) (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

A week to be wicked…

Widowed Selina Martin faces another marriage founded on duty, not love. When notorious libertine Lord Bruard invites her to his isolated hunting lodge, he promises discretion – and seven days of hedonistic pleasure before she weds her boorish fiancé. All her life, Selina has done the right thing, but this no-strings-attached chance to discover the handsome rake’s sensual secrets is irresistible. She’ll surrender to her wicked fantasies, seize some brief happiness, then knuckle down to a loveless union. What could possibly go wrong?

In a lifetime of seduction, Brock Drummond, the dashing Earl of Bruard, has never wanted a woman the way he wants demure widow Selina Martin. When Selina agrees to become his temporary lover, he soon falls captive to an enchantment unlike any other. He sets out to slake his white hot desire until only ashes remain, but as each day of forbidden delight passes, the idea of saying goodbye to his ardent mistress becomes more and more unbearable.

When scandal explodes around them and threatens to destroy Selina, Brock is the only person she can turn to. After so short a time, can she trust a man whose name is a byword for depravity?

Will this sizzling liaison prove a mere affair to remember? Or will their week of passion spark a lifetime of happiness for the widow and her dissolute Scottish earl?

Anna dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I blame this book totally on the corona virus crisis! I’m taking part in a Christmas anthology later this year and I decided that I’d get a bit ahead of schedule by writing a heart-warming seasonal story all full of mistletoe kisses and tinsel and the joy of life. I like writing those stories. I do at least one every year. But back in March when I started on this particular story, the world was going mad around me. People were dying in their thousands in Europe and the US, the news was nothing but bad tidings, and we’d all been locked down as quarantine risks. So somehow my Christmas book morphed into a dark, deeply emotional and extremely steamy romance about two people who should have nothing in common but end up being perfect for one another. Not only that, but a snowstorm traps them in a luxurious hunting lodge together. Hmm, perhaps I was seeing my own house through rose-coloured glasses at the time! About halfway through, I realised that this story was many things but in no way was it a Christmas story. By that stage I’d fallen in love with the characters, so I decided to finish it and release it as The Highlander’s Forbidden Mistress with no tinsel whatsoever. Like all my stories, while this one is part of the Lairds Most Likely series, you can read it as a standalone. Now all I need to do is write something Christmassy!
