March 2019

As I write this, I’m well into my latest European adventure. I’ve had a week in Paris, three weeks in Venice and I’m currently enjoying the wonderful comfort and inspirational surroundings of the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Ireland where I’m putting the finishing touches to my next release (more about that below).

The third book in the Lairds Most Likely series is up for pre-order. The Highlander’s Lost Lady will be out on 29th April on all platforms. Here’s the blurb:

A Highlander as brave and strong as a knight of old…

When Diarmid Mactavish, Laird of Invertavey, discovers a mysterious woman washed up on his land after a wild storm, he takes her in and tries to find her family. But even as forbidden dreams of sensual fulfillment torment him, he’s convinced that this beautiful lassie isn’t what she seems. And if there’s one thing Diarmid despises, it’s a liar.

A mother willing to do anything to save her daughter…

Widow Fiona Grant has risked everything to break free of her clan and rescue her adolescent daughter from a forced marriage. But before her quest has barely begun, disaster strikes. She escapes her brutish kinsmen, only to be shipwrecked on Mactavish territory where she falls into her enemies’ hands. For centuries, a murderous feud has raged between the Mactavishes and the Grants, so how can she trust her darkly handsome host?

Now a twisted Highland road leads to danger and passion…and irresistible love. But is love strong enough to banish the past’s long shadows and offer these wary allies all that their hearts desire?

Cassie at Belle Addiction Litteraire reviewed the French translation of Seven Nights in a Rogue’s Bed and gave it 10/10! She also called it a “magnificent historical romance.” If you speak French, check out the review!

And now for some news of a few events coming up where you can meet me and a stack of other great authors.

First up, if you’re anywhere near Paris from Friday, 24th May, to Saturday, 25th May, why not come to the Festival du Roman Feminin?

I’m really looking forward to this – I’ll be signing copies of all my French books, including the new ones, Le Chateau des Miroirs and Le Plus Precieux des Joyaux. For details on where it is, how much it costs, and who’s going to be there, check out this site: https://www.facebook.com/FestivalDuRomanFeminin/

Just after I get back to Australia, I’m teaching a workshop at the fabulous Rainforest Writing Retreat at O’Reilly’s Guesthouse in the Gold Coast hinterland. This is Australia’s premier writing retreat, so you don’t want to miss out. There’s a great range of workshops and presenters on offer. This goes from Friday, 31st May to Sunday, 2nd June. For more information and bookings, check out this site: http://www.rainforestwritingretreat.com/

And finally, if you’re an American fan of historical romance, don’t miss the Historical Romance Retreat at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa in Riverside, California. I went to the first HRR back in 2016 and had a ball and I’m so excited they’ve invited me back again this year. The retreat goes from Wednesday, 11th September to Sunday, 15th September and it promises to be a blast. For details and bookings, check out this site: https://www.historicalromanceretreat.com/

Finally, don’t miss this month’s My Favorite Things column. It’s part 2 of a series on my favorite reads of 2018. This month, it’s about my favorite nonfiction books, mainly travel and memoir, as you’ll see. All four books are fantastic and well worth picking up!

February 2019

Welcome to February, the most romantic of months for those who celebrate Valentine’s Day. It’s actually an exciting month for me because I start another big European trip in a few days. Can’t wait. Do you follow me on Facebook? That’s where I’ll be putting the photos. Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/annacampbell.writer

First up a small apology. I had intended to get The Highlander’s Lost Lady (originally announced as The Laird’s Lost Lady) out at the end of March but this has turned into a much bigger story than I’d originally imagined so the release date has been delayed until the end of April. Swing back next month for a reveal of the cover, blurb and buy links.

The next big news is that Seven Nights in a Rogue’s Bed, my first Sons of Sin book, comes out in France on 6th February under the very intriguing title of The Castle of Mirrors. Isn’t that a beautiful cover? Watch out for the rest of the series from J’ai Lu. You can buy Le Chateau des Miroirs from all good book retailers, including Amazon France.

While I’m on foreign edition news, if you’re a Romanian reader, Seven Nights in a Rogue’s Bed has been out in translation there since the end of November. Check out this incredibly sensual cover!

It’s the lovely time of year when people start choosing their best romances of 2018. I’m delighted that a few of my books have featured in a couple of lists.

First up, Lord Garson’s Bride, the seventh book in the Dashing Widows series, was one of Helen’s top 10 reads for 2018 on Deanna’s World. Helen says, “Ms. Campbell has never disappointed me with one of her stories. She has a magical voice with words that entice readers to go back in time. Her characters are full of life and her stories sensual and fabulous. This one was so good.”

The wonderful Breathless in the Bush girls have all chosen their favorite romance written by an Australian in 2018 and I’m tickled pink that on a fabulous list, they’ve included The Laird’s Willful Lass. See what else they chose – all wonderful reads: https://breathlessinthebush.blogspot.com/2019/01/the-breathless-list-2019.html?showComment=1548099297603#c6189668893022281282

Kathy at Kathy’s Review Corner has chosen her Gems of 2018 and I’m delighted that The Laird’s Christmas Kiss made her list.

And finally a best of December listing from Cathryn Hein who chose The Laird’s Christmas Kiss as one of her fave reads of the month. Cathryn says, “An absolute delight and perfect for any season. And Highlanders!”

This month’s My Favorite Things is the first in a series of columns about my favorite reads in 2018 (why not get on the band wagon?). My four best fiction discoveries of last year get a look-in this time round.

And in news of another great deal, although sadly only in the U.S. and Canada, my multi award-winning Captive of Sin is available as an e-book for only $2.99 for a limited time. Click on this link at All About Romance and you’ll find the links and a precis of the book. This book was one of only 10 mass market paperbacks across all genres that Publishers Weekly chose as the best of the year in 2009, when it was released.

Two of my books have been mentioned in recent best of lists. The first is Regency Reader’s list of the top 10 Christmas anthologies which includes A Grosvenor Square Christmas, the anthology I did with Vanessa Kelly, Kate Noble, and Shana Galen. If you haven’t got this collection, grab it now. It’s perma-free.

I’m also delighted that Flippin’ Pages has chosen my latest release, The Laird’s Christmas Kiss, as one of the best novellas of 2018. There’s lots of news about some great reviews for my latest laird coming up.

I’m so pleased that The Laird’s Christmas Kiss, book 2 in my Lairds Most Likely series, has received a really warm welcome out in the world. Thanks to the VERY many of you who have picked it up and told me how much you enjoyed this story of shy Elspeth and roguish Brody discovering that there’s much more to one another than previously suspected!

Among the mail is this gem from dedicated reader Carol Pena, who asked me to quote her:

“I cannot say this enough, I love ALL your books, the series, the stand alone books. The way you can bring all the other characters into play in the Sons of Sin, Dashing Widows and Courtesan series is nothing short of brilliant! Now I am enjoying the same brilliance in the Laird series!”

Here’s a selection from some of the reviews that have come out in the last month.

Kathy at Kathy’s Review Corner says, “The Laird’s Christmas Kiss was a delightful romance that I didn’t want to put down…This story was exactly what I wanted to read at the holidays.”

Jessie at Night Owl Romance awarded The Laird’s Christmas Kiss with a Top Pick badge and calls the story “delightful.”

Tracy at Flippin’ Pages says, “I absolutely loved this novella. It was well written, paced nicely, gave glimpses of Fergus and Marina’s HEA, had witty banter, steamy love scenes, great secondary characters and a sigh worthy declaration. It is the second book in the series, but it can easily be read as a stand alone title.” 5 stars

Carol at Rakes and Rascals calls The Laird’s Christmas Kiss, “a real treat from one of my favorite authors.” 4 stars.

Jonetta at the Blue Mood Cafe says, “This was a delightful story with the Christmas season as the backdrop serving to make it even more festive.”

And a couple of reviews of assorted other books for your reading pleasure. First up, a review in Italian for A Rake’s Midnight Kiss (Un Baccio Di Un Dissoluto) from Libri Magnetici. The final verdict? “A story that I recommend reading.”

Now for a review of the audiobook of A Scoundrel by Moonlight, my fourth Sons of Sin book, from Caz at All About Romance. She gave the audiobook much-coveted desert island keeper status and says, “The relationship between the protagonists crackles with sexual tension right from their first meeting.”

And finally another review from Kathy at Kathy’s Review Corner, this time for The Laird’s Willful Lass, which she called “a sexy introduction to Anna Campbell’s new Lairds Most Likely series.”

Now for some news about a great new book by Annie West. The Greek’s Forbidden Innocent is a really sexy, emotional read about a mismatched couple who end up deciding they’re the perfect match after all. Well worth picking up!

If you’ve been following my series on My Favorite Things page about classic Hollywood musicals, it comes to an end this month with the wonderful Gigi with Leslie Caron and Louis Jourdan. Loved this one. Check out my thoughts here.

A couple of fun videos to watch if you’re a fan of the moving image. The first one is a podcast of an interview I did with local rural romance writer Sarah Williams as part of her great Write with Love series (if you start watching these, you’re likely to be there all day! I was!). Here’s the link: https://tinyurl.com/y764p5wc If you click on the selfie of Sarah and me, it will take you directly to the podcast.

The next ones are two short videos I made on my first trip to Eigg in 2017 when I was starting to put my stories together for the Lairds Most Likely series, which is currently live with The Laird’s Willful Lass and The Laird’s Christmas Kiss. The first one has a great photobomb by supermodel Lola. The second one might make you a little seasick but it gives you an idea of what that beautiful island is like and why it was so inspirational when it came to writing my Scottish romances.

Now for some review news. There’s a few this month, mostly for The Laird’s Christmas Kiss. Helen at Historical Romance Reviews gave TLCK 5 stars and says, “Another story for the keeper shelf and I am really looking forward to Hamish and Diarmid’s stories.” Barb at Tartan Book Reviews says, “I absolutely loved this story and the multidimensional characters kept me on my toes. Another riveting story that I couldn’t put down! I highly recommend The Laird’s Christmas Kiss by Anna Campbell.” 5 stars. Rose from Roses are Blue gives the story 4 blue roses and says, “The Laird’s Christmas Kiss is both light, yet serious, as it showcases family dynamics, insecurities, friendships, and misunderstandings.  But most of all, it’s a warm and entertaining holiday romance with a satisfying happy ever after.”

I’m going to quote the next two reviews at length. The first is from Laura Boon who chose TLCK as one of her five favorite spring reads on her blog: “After six delightful novellas, Anna Campbell has returned to full length novels with her Laird’s Most Likely series. The Laird’s Christmas Kiss has landed just in time for Christmas, a time Anna writes about particularly well. Shy wallflower Elspeth Douglas has had a crush on Brody Girvan, Laird of Invermackie, for five years – and he has never noticed her. Just when she decides to grow up and move on, he decides to show interest. Unfortunately his reputation as a rake means Elspeth is uncertain as to whether she can trust his newfound interest. With interfering friends and a crate of imported mistletoe thrown into the mix, the stage is set for a house party rife with secrets, clandestine kisses, misunderstandings, heartache, scandal, and love triumphant.”

Jaci at The Reading Wench gave TLCK a rave review, saying: “Anna has done it again, an absolutely wonderful love story with my favorite, rugged, handsome Highlanders.  Anna has a talent for creating unforgettable characters that stay with you long after the book ends.  Her stories are truly captivating and she is one of the most talented Historical Romance authors today.”

And finally a lovely review of the last Dashing Widow book, Lord Garson’s Bride, from Heather at the Australian Romance Readers Association blog: “Pulls at the heartstrings.”

My Favorite Things this month continues my popular series on Hollywood musicals with a slightly in two minds review of An American in Paris. I definitely loved it more wholeheartedly when I was a teenager, but the ballet is still wonderful. Check it out! See you in 2019!

November 2018

Wow, November already! Where has the year gone? Lots of news this month, so strap yourself in and grab a cup of your favorite beverage!

First up, The Laird’s Christmas Kiss: The Likely Lairds Book 2 is live on all platforms. Thank you to everyone who picked up my latest book, and especially to those wonderful people who have left reviews (so far, all 5 star on Amazon!). Brody and Elspeth are proving popular with my readers and have been hovering around the top 20 Holiday romance listing on Amazon.com since they hit the shelves.

Just in case you missed it, here’s the blurb:

Down with love!

Ever since she was fifteen, shy wallflower Elspeth Douglas has pined in vain for the attentions of dashing Brody Girvan, Laird of Invermackie. But the rakish Highlander doesn’t even know she’s alive. Now she’s twenty, she realizes that she’ll never be happy until she stops loving her brother’s handsome friend. When family and friends gather at Achnasheen Castle for Christmas, she intends to show the world that’s she’s all grown up, and grown out of silly crushes on gorgeous Scotsmen. So take that, my gallant laddie!

Girls just want to have fun…

Except it turns out that Brody isn’t singing from the same Christmas carol sheet. Elspeth decides she’s not interested in him anymore, just as he decides he’s very interested indeed. In fact, now he looks more closely, his friend Hamish’s sister is pretty and funny and forthright – and just the lassie to share his Highland estate. Convincing his little wren of his romantic intentions is difficult enough, even before she undergoes a makeover and becomes the belle of Achnasheen. For once in his life, dissolute Brody is burdened with honorable intentions, while the lady he pursues is set on flirtation with no strings attached.

Deck the halls with mistletoe!

With interfering friends and a crate of imported mistletoe thrown into the mix, the stage is set for a house party rife with secrets, clandestine kisses, misunderstandings, heartache, scandal, and love triumphant.

Some reviews have come in during the month. I’m going to start with a wonderful review for The Laird’s Willful Lass: The Lairds Most Likely Book 1 from Tracy at Flippin’ Pages. I love it so much, I’m going to quote it in full:

I really loved this story – It was a straight up love story, no villains, no complicated plot to follow, just a boy and girl falling in love and learning that love is worth any sacrifice. Sigh… Marina and Fergus are wonderful characters, both strong and used to being in charge, watching them learn to compromise was both amusing and poignant. The love scenes in this book were steamy without being overly graphic, the very few secondary characters are great and added to the story without competing for attention, the banter between Fergus and Marina is very entertaining and the ending is sigh worthy. If you are looking for a really good love story without a lot of complications and side stories – this is the book for you!! I am happy to recommend this book and look forward to Hamish and Diarmid’s stories!!

Jonetta at Blue Mood Cafe also really enjoyed Willful Lass: “This was a beautiful story with two well-designed characters who were quite different from those typical of the era.” 4 Stars.

K.M. St. James at Lone Star Reviews gave Tempting Mr. Townsend: The Dashing Widows Book 2 a glowing review, saying, “Author Anna Campbell once again captures the incurable romantic heart.”

And now for something different, I have a lovely review in Croatian of my second Sons of Sin book, A Rake’s Midnight Kiss, from Just Read. If you read Croatian, check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/416456375490990/posts/459848981151729/

I’ve also found the cover for What a Duke Dares in Croatian which is out from Naklada Neptun right now!

Now for some news about events coming up.

The first one is a big Facebook party on 5th November when I take over Bobbi Dumas’s Romance of Reading page for the whole day as part of a month-long celebration of Highlanders (I’ll be in that, och aye!).

There will be giveaways galore, excerpts, fun and games – and maybe a couple of surprises that you won’t want to miss. If you would like to participate, you need to join the Romance of Reading page. Just click on this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheRomanceofReading/

The other events are a little further in the future but given how quickly things book out, I thought I’d mention them today.

First up is the Festival du Roman Feminin on 24th and 25th May 2019 in Paris (Les Romantiques kind of had me at hello when they invited me!). There’s a wonderful line-up of authors coming to the festival, both French and international, and if you can make it, I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time.

Next is a workshop I’m running as part of the Rainforest Writing Retreat at O’Reilly’s Resort up on the beautiful Lamington Plateau outside Brisbane from 31st May to 2nd June 2019. This is a wonderful opportunity for writers to get together with like-minded people and to learn from some of the best in the business. For bookings and more information: http://www.rainforestwritingretreat.com/

Another one for next year, too. I’m going to be one of the featured authors at the Historical Romance Retreat, held at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa, Riverside, California, from 11th to 15th September, 2019. This is one you won’t want to miss. I was a guest at the inaugural HRR back in 2016 at the Historic Davenport Hotel in Spokane and it was one of the best conventions I’ve ever been to.

Phew! I told you there was a lot of news this month! One final piece of information for you. The series on classic Hollywood musicals on the My Favorite Things page is proving really popular – thanks to everyone who has read the pieces and commented on Facebook and Twitter. This month’s entry is a movie that vies for the spot as my absolutely favorite musical – The Bandwagon from 1953. Check out my thoughts here: http://annacampbell.com/my-favorite-things/

October 2018

New releases are coming thick and fast right now. Last month, I told you about Mistletoe Wishes, my boxed set of six of my previously published Christmas stories which is now on sale (for more details, visit this page) at a bargain price. This month, I’ve got news of my Christmas story for this year which is currently up for pre-order and will come out on 27th October on Kindle and 31st October on all other platforms.

The Laird’s Christmas Kiss: The Lairds Most Likely book 2 is the next entry in the Lairds Most Likely series which started last July with my well-received The Laird’s Willful Lass. It takes place at Achnasheen Castle and recounts the romance of bluestocking Elspeth Douglas and rakish Brody Girvan, Fergus Mackinnon’s cousin and the laird of the title. Here’s the blurb:

Down with love!

Ever since she was fifteen, shy wallflower Elspeth Douglas has pined in vain for the attentions of dashing Brody Girvan, Laird of Invermackie. But the rakish Highlander doesn’t even know she’s alive. Now she’s twenty, she realizes that she’ll never be happy until she stops loving her brother’s handsome friend. When family and friends gather at Achnasheen Castle for Christmas, she intends to show the world that’s she’s all grown up, and grown out of silly crushes on gorgeous Scotsmen. So take that, my gallant laddie!

Except it turns out that Brody isn’t singing from the same Christmas carol sheet. Elspeth decides she’s not interested in him anymore, just as he decides he’s very interested indeed.

Convincing his little wren of his romantic intentions is difficult enough, even before she undergoes a makeover and becomes the belle of Achnasheen. For once in his life, dissolute Brody is burdened with honorable intentions, while the lady he pursues is set on flirtation with no strings attached.

Deck the halls with mistletoe!

With interfering friends and a crate of imported mistletoe thrown into the mix, the stage is set for a house party rife with secrets, clandestine kisses, misunderstandings, heartache, scandal, and love triumphant.

As you can see, there are elements of both Cinderella and the Ugly Duckling in this one, all wrapped up in a bright red Christmas bow. And if you pre-order, you get all this Christmassy goodness for the bargain price of only 99 cents on Amazon! Upon release, the price goes up to $2.99 on Amazon and $3.99 on all other platforms so get in quick!

Look out for the next full-length installment in this series in early 2019. I’m currently working on The Laird’s Lost Lady and it’s going to be a humdinger, the most dramatic story I’ve written in quite a while!

While you’re waiting for The Laird’s Christmas Kiss to hit your e-reader, why not pick up USA Bestseller Annie West’s latest, Her Forgotten Lover’s Heir, which is out later this month. This is a great story, full of twists and turns and Annie’s trademark emotional power about a girl who wakes up with no memory in a Rome hospital after an accident. She’s pregnant and the man who claims to be her husband is a stranger. Wow, high stakes romance! You can buy this at all good retailers, including Amazon.

This month’s My Favorite Things column follows on from September’s about Singin’ in the Rain which was fantastically popular. Thanks to everyone who swung by to read it. I’m still talking about favorite movie musicals, and this time, I’m looking at Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire in Funny Face from 1957.

Thank you to everyone who bought my most recent release, The Laird’s Willful Lass, Book 1 of the Lairds Most Likely series. There have been some lovely reviews, too.

Lisa at Buried Under Romance has this to say: “How wonderful! We have two strong willed, confident and poised people looking for, and finding, love without knowing it. They drive each other crazy with their dictatorial assertiveness, which turns into, “Methinks thou dost protest too much.” Watching them each learn the art of compromise was charming! I completely enjoyed this story. Once again, Ms. Campbell brings us characters that we can get behind, cheer for and enjoy.”

Rose at Roses Are Blue says: “My favorite aspect of The Laird’s Willful Lass is that the whole story is basically Marina and Fergus spending time with each other and falling in love.  There is no outside interference, just two strong willed people who will have to make compromises if they are to have a future.  I also really appreciate that neither of them was too stubborn to listen to the other’s opinion, or to reevaluate their own thoughts on the way they feel things should be.  I love the sacrifice Fergus was willing to make, and I love Marina’s response even more.  The Laird’s Willful Lass is a romantic and satisfying read with plenty of steam and heart.” 4 roses.

Jessie at Night Owl Reviews says: “Anna Campbell is one of my favorite historical romance authors because her stories are consistently good. The Laird’s Willful Lass is another winner with the author’s ability to layer in historical details while creating strong female characters that get happily ever afters.” 4 stars.

Jaci at The Reading Wench says: “Absolutely Stunning!!  I love handsome rugged Highlanders, especially if they are created by Anna Campbell…Anna’s writing is witty and emotionally satisfying.  The sensual attraction is hot! She will keep you enthralled from the first page to the last.  I am a fan and will be adding this one to my keeper shelf with all my other Anna Campbell Historical Romances.  I highly recommend this book.”

Finally for this batch of reviews, Helen at Romance Book Haven gave Laird 5 stars and says: “Ms. Campbell has taken me on magical trip back in time to the Scottish Highlands, my dream holiday location, with the start of her new series. I always look forward to a new Anna Campbell book and I have never been disappointed. This one is a beauty, sensual with such witty banter and humor throughout. This journey to a HEA that is between two very strong and stubborn people will have you turning the pages. Clear your calendar because you are not going to want to put this one down once you start.”

Swing back next month because I’ll have news about my Christmas story for this year, another Lairds Most Likely installment called The Laird’s Christmas Kiss. It’s out at the end of October but it will be up for pre-order at the end of September.

This month’s My Favorite Things is the start of a series about some beloved Hollywood musicals. And what better film to launch my musings with than the brilliant Singin’ in the Rain? Check it out!
