Highland Games Book Birthday

Happy first birthday to Highland Games! The first novel in the Kinloch series was released on October 15th 2021 and I’m celebrating one year of it being out in the world!

It’s been an absolutely amazing year, with over eight and a half thousand people reading the enemies-to-lovers, steamy Scottish romantic comedy since it was released, as well as it winning an award!

So, without further ado, here are the highlights from a year of Highland Games.


The invention of the sex index

Yes, this was where it started, the greatest contribution to the world of literature since the printing press. At the back of Highland Games is a very handy index to all the steamy scenes so you can easily find and re-read them at your leisure. For more info about my genius idea, check out my sex index blog here. 

The writing of Highland Games also involved a lot of editing, and in that process, I cut nineteen thousands words of sexy time. Luckily, it had a new lease of life in the form of an exclusive freebie for newsletter subscribers which you can access here!

Highland Games blurb

A fiery redhead, a Scottish god, and enough heat to warm the coldest of winters…

Zoe’s done playing it safe and ready to follow her heart. Inheriting a cabin in a remote corner of Scotland, she ditches the city and heads for the Highlands. But reality shatters her dream. The roof leaks, there’s no front door, and her scorching hot neighbour wants her gone.

Rory’s a grumpy man-bear with an impossible task. If he can’t drag Kinloch castle into the 21st century, he’s out of a job. All he wants is a quiet life in the cabin he loved as a child. But fire-cracker Zoe got there first, and she’s turning his world upside down.

Sparks fly as their attraction ignites. Will Zoe and Rory kindle an all-consuming passion, or will their love go up in smoke?

Let the games begin…
