Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, 1824.  

Ever since he unexpectedly inherited his father’s earldom in the Scottish Highlands, Cameron Dunn’s been searching for something, anything, to bring meaning to his new life—a search that reaches an abrupt end when he’s washed up, alone, on a deserted beach in Mexico. 

Or at least the beach should be deserted. There’s no village for hundreds of miles. So who’s that beautiful woman walking toward him over the sand?

Letty Monro has a business to run, a plan for her future. Rescuing a shipwrecked earl wasn’t on the agenda. But the man’s desperate, so of course she’ll bring him to the British Settlement—for fifty pounds. And his signet ring for collateral. She’s even prepared to look past the fact he’s a peer, part of the system of oppression she despises.

As they begin their journey, sailing south through the Caribbean sea, Cameron finds himself falling for this guarded, stubborn businesswoman, and the heat smoldering between them threatens to burst into flame. Keeping her distance from the Earl of Banton will prove one of the greatest challenges Letty has ever faced. Especially when she notices, in the distracting warmth of his brown eyes, the one thing they have in common . . . How lost they both truly are.

The Darnalay Castle Series

1820 Scotland. Fear of violent insurgency grips the industrial South, while thousands of Highlanders are cruelly evicted in the North . . . 

So begins the Darnalay Castle Series. Centered in Scotland, this groundbreaking historical romance series transports you from Glasgow and the Highlands to the far reaches of the British empire - and back again - to the heart of power in London. And it asks the question:

Can love triumph in a world gone mad? 

Step outside of the ballrooms and bedrooms of the elite into a more inclusive history, where radicals and romantics vie with capitalists and aristocrats in this evocative, one-of-a-kind historical romance series. 

The first three books in the Darnalay Castle series are complete, with the fourth and final book, The Song of the Magpie, coming in late summer 2024. Sign up for Louise’s newsletter to stay up to date on the publication plan, pre-order availability and other news.
