behind the book

The Rebel was first published in print in 2010 in The Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance - an anthology of short story romances.  It is also available as a single short story in ebook format.

The action takes place during the Battle of Sherrifmuir which occurred during the Jacobite Rebellions of 1715.  It is this battle that sets the characters in motion on a path of vengeance and justice for the upcoming stories: Captured by the Highlander, Claimed by the Highlander, and Seduced by the Highlander.

While the battle is a true historical event, the characters in this story are fictional, as are all the characters in my Highlander series (except for King George of course).  Angus MacDonald (the hero in Claimed by the Highlander) makes a cameo appearance in this story.
