If you like strong alpha heroes and feisty heroines, you will love USA Today Best-selling author Hildie McQueen's Medieval Highlander romances.
Hildie McQueen was born in Mexico, grew up in Southern California, and now resides in a beautiful small town in Georgia.
Her obsession for all things pink and Paris can only be beaten by her love for dogs. Thanks to her superhero husband Kurt’s unwavering support, she can write full time with her constant companions, the trio of fearless tiny dogs.
I recently traveled to Scotland to get a feel for the country. It was my second trip there and like the first time, I strangely felt as if I’d come home. The people are warm and welcoming, the food delicious and the beauty of Scotland is breathtaking. There were several times that my travel companions and I stood silently side-by-side looking out at unforgettable views. If you have not traveled to Scotland, please do. You won’t regret it.
One of the places I was looking forward to exploring was the Tokavaig area on the Isle of Skye, where my new release, The Bear, and next series, Clan Ross of Skye, will take place.
Dunscaith, the castle, which will be my Clan’s keep is in ruins, but we were able to walk around and explore it. Let me tell you it was so worth it. The ruins are surrounded on two sides by Loch Eishort and one side by tall hills. When atop the ruins, the views are amazing.
To celebrate the release of my next book, The Bear, I decided to make a simple medieval fruit tart. It was so easy to make and without a recipe, I was surprised how good it tasted. Back in those days of course, they had to mill the flour, churn the butter and grind the spices. Thankfully we don’t have to do all that. Try it, you and your family will love it!

Lastly, cut the pats of butter into fourths and dot them on top.
