Laura Harner's HIGHLAND DESTINY Blog Tour


Highland Destiny Series Book Trailer:

Highland Destiny, #1

Amazon Top 10 *** #1 Paranormal Romance *** #1 Fantasy Romance

The Highland Destiny saga begins with Highland Shift, a tale of betrayal, murder, and magick spanning two continents and hundreds of years.

Elena MacFarland wonders what everyone else knows about her new farm that she doesn't, and whether she'll live long enough to find out. Betrayed by her fiancé and the powerful Worthington family, Elena fights back and negotiates a comfortable settlement with one small caveat: she must live in Scotland for two years.

One kidnapping and two attempts on her life later, the darkly arrogant Scot, Faolan MacGailtry declares himself her new protector and moves into her farmhouse. Major problem? He was present at all three incidents. Elena decides to follow the adage to keep her friends close and enemies closer--but which is he?

One by one, Elena uncovers Faolan's darkest secrets: his Druid heritage, his connection to her past, and finally, the deadly curse that is powerful enough to destroy them both.

Notes: This is the first book of the Highland Destiny series and includes multiple paranormal elements, including Druidry, Fae, shapeshifting and magick. Heat level: Slowly builds from extreme sexual tension toward "bring-some-ice-water" hot!


Highland Destiny, #2

**The best-selling Highland Destiny saga continues in Highland Pull, a tale of betrayal, murder, and magick that spans two continents and hundreds of years. **

Waking up next to a dead woman was a good indication that Dr. Gabhran MacLachlan was in bigger trouble than he'd realized. Recognizing this as another trap set by the dark Druid Master, Gav races from Edinburgh to New Orleans to find Alysone, a mental patient who claims to have awakened in a reality that isn't hers. Her story, so close to his own, may be the necessary key to unlock his Druid memories and prevent him from shifting realities once again.

When Alysone disappears, Detective Miranda Close is less than thrilled to discover her new landlord and would-be lover is the missing woman's doctor. Raised in the magick of New Orleans and already familiar with the darkness coiled within Gav, Randi's belief in the supernatural may be all that saves her life when they are pulled hundreds of years into his past, and only one of them remembers the truth. When realities shift once again, Randi realizes they may be pawns in a much larger game.


Highland Destiny, #3

**The best-selling Highland Destiny saga continues in Highland Pull, a tale of betrayal, murder, and magick that spans two continents and hundreds of years. **

Using the spell of time shifting, Alexander MacLachlan says good-bye to his beloved brother, his brother's wife, and his own darling Alysone--necessary sacrifices for the survival of Druidry. With his family far in the future preparing for battle, Alex must fulfill his destiny: find the Worthington heir, then kill and be killed.

Thrust forward to a time not her own, Alysone and the others discover precious few light Druids remain to offer their protection to Scotia and the world. As the time for the prophesied battle grows nearer, past meets present, and they realize someone besides Alexander is manipulating events. In a race against time, they must discover the lost secrets of Druidry, even as the members of the dark Bresal Etarlam work to destroy all that is light and claim the Druid legacy as their own.


Highland Destiny, #4

**The best-selling Highland Destiny saga continues in Highland Pull, a tale of betrayal, murder, and magick that spans two continents and hundreds of years. **

Although Professor Andi Cunningham knows Druidry and magick are real, her dream to recreate a twelfth century Scottish castle is destroyed when the Druid who claimed her heart wards her from the land. Now Andi’s deeply hidden Druid powers have been awakened by her new husband, Liam—Ian’s descendant and the son of the Master of the Bresal Etarlam, who wants her untapped power as his own.

Ian Worthington, the ancient warrior displaced by time, knows sacrifices must be made for the good of the order, including his own heart. However, as prophesies are revealed, he discovers sending Andi away for her protection may prove too costly for them all. When Ian convinces her to return to finish her work on the castle, both sides in the Druid conflict are pleased.

With both Ian and Liam keeping secrets, Andi must uncover the darkest secrets of her Druid heritage and the connection to the past, before the upcoming battle destroys the balance of power forever. All that’s at stake is the fate of the world.

Raised in California, Laura likes it hot, which explains why she ended up in Arizona via such diverse places as Japan, Maine, and Florida, and many more places in between. After retiring from the US Navy, she found a niche working for land management agencies, including the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Though she has held many jobs around the world, her favorite was working and living in Grand Canyon National Park. Working (and eating) in New Orleans was a close second. You will find many of her books are set against the rich backdrops provided by coastal Louisiana and northern Arizona.

When asked how she started writing, Laura tells of waking on Boxing Day a few years ago, with a woman named Elena MacFarland yammering in her dreams, demanding her story be told. Despite never attempting to write fiction before that morning, Laura ignored all of the holiday visitors and the Highland Destiny series was born. She doesn't believe it was a coincidence that the great grandmother who died when Laura was just a baby was named Elena MacFarland. Destiny does play a hand.

Laura became a full-time writer in 2012, and now she spends her time writing, watching her Arizona Diamondbacks, and working on her very own version of the Willow Springs Ranch in northwestern Arizona.

Laura is a multi-published author of erotic romance, mystery, and urban fantasy and her books can be found at all major online retailers.

Happy Valentines Day!

For all my fans, thank you so much for reading my books.
Happy Valentines Day!
My story SEAL's DESIRE in the SEALed WITH A KISS boxed set is about a Valentine's Date gone bad, SEAL style!
Need a little excitement and suspense on
Valentine's Day? 
Check it out!
Eight SEAL Romances from
National Bestselling Authors

Elle James—SEAL's Desire
Back from deployment, Navy SEAL Remy LaDue’s planned Valentine’s Day date with NCIS agent Mitchell Sanders runs amuck when he finds her undercover as a sexy stripper at a local lounge. Remy and his team join forces with Mitchell to find a missing woman and discover a human trafficking organization in the darkest heart of Virginia Beach

She held on, her fingernails digging into his skin, desperate to bring him closer, as if she could make him a part of her. Mitchell flung back her head and cried out as Remy thrust one last time, burying himself deep inside. 

As she floated back to earth, he dropped to the mattress beside her, turning her with him, maintaining their connection, his cock still hard and stiff inside her body.

She lay for several minutes in his arms, savoring the warmth of his embrace but knowing she couldn't stay. "I have to go."

His arms tightened around her. "Stay with me."

"I can't." Mitchell pried his arms loose and stood beside the bed, staring down at his naked male form, tempted to hop back in and cuddle against the warmth of his brawny body. But she couldn't. "If Hatch or one of his snitches is watching my place, they'll begin to wonder why I haven't come home. I need to be there."

Remy leaned up on an elbow. "I have your GPS data. You're not running this op alone."
She nodded. "I don't want you hurt in the process."

"I can hold my own."

"These guys are dangerous."

"And Al-Qaeda isn't?" He chuckled, his face ruggedly appealing, the sparkle in his eyes making her want to kiss him again.

Her chest contracted and she squeezed her fingers into a fist, refusing to give in to desire again. "You do realize that I can't text, call or contact you. Too risky."

"I understand." He stood and brushed a strand of hair from her face then pulled her into the circle of his arms. "Take care of yourself, darlin'. I don't want to lose you, now that I've found you again."

"Goes both ways." She leaned into him, reveling in his heat. His hands were so big, rough and yet gentle. Mitchell could get used to having them all over her body, all of the time. If everything went according to her plan, she hoped she'd get that chance. Soon. "We have so much to talk about when this is all over."
