Let’s talk Black Highlanders! Our hero for NEVER CROSS A HIGHLANDER is Kallum MacNeill, army commander for Clan MacNeill. I was lucky enough to have this book land on several “most anticipated books” lists of 2022.
One of my fav writeups was the Book Riot piece by @jess_is_reading. She references the teaser we dropped with the initial cover reveal: “From author Lisa Rayne comes a historical mash-up of Dirty Harry in a kilt with Mr. and Mrs. Smith. This banter-laden historical romance proves kilts have never been more fun!”
She also fawned over the initial cover (we tweaked it a bit and made it even better,
if you can believe that – 😀 ) and my shoutout to one of the classic film lines from History of the World: Part I (1981) by the great Mel Brooks, among other things.
Book Riot has given my Highlander much love since then, and many readers have indicated they found me through some Book Riot post, article, or podcast.
