Alexa & The Future of Glenhalish


Thanks so much for coming back to celebrate with me again today!

What's happening next? As I've mentioned in various parts of this release party, Carry Me Home is the first story in what I hope will be a trilogy set in Glenhalish, Scotland. This 1st story revolves around eldest MacDougall, Jamie.

Today I'd like to reveal to you the cover for the next MacDougall story, baby of the family Meggie. Here is the blurb for this second story, Silent Surrender:

Meggie MacDougall often dreams of Quinn O’Connell, the sexy Irish football coach who swept her off her feet in Dublin. But what happened in Dublin must stay there. She has responsibilities at home, and she refuses to fuel the gossip fires in Glenhalish.

 Quinn has never forgotten Meggie and the explosive weekend they shared. Overwhelmed by memories of her passion, beauty, and zest for life, he jeopardizes his cushy career to find her and test the connection between them.

When Quinn arrives in her Highland village, Meggie is determined to ignore him. However, she isn't prepared for the claim he lays on her heart with his sexy charm and his tender soul.

Will pride and fear keep Meggie from embracing possibilities, or will Quinn's gentle persistence break down her defenses and lead her to a silent surrender?
I'm still waiting on a release date for Silent Surrender. I'll be sure to let you know as soon as I can!

Other than that, I'm keeping busy with writing in a new genre. I'm also waiting to hear whether my publisher wants the story for the 3rd MacDougall, the middle child, Ewan. If Decadent Publishing takes that story, you'll have a grand time! Also, Jamie and Mary return to both Meggie's story and Ewan's as secondary characters.

Oooooh! And before I forget, this week I've started a new page on my website called Cuan MacDougall Pub. It's a place where my characters can hang out and give readers more inside information on the village of Glenhalish. Meggie will be the hostess until further notice! It will be her chance to share her point of view of her world because she's the big mouth of the village. (But don't tell her I said that!) You can see her first post here. I hope you'll consider joining us there!

Does any of this sound appealing to you? Leave a comment with your thoughts and you'll be in the running for today's contest. Remember, winners will be chosen from all comments from all locations for each day. AND if you tweet about it, which will give you MORE chances to win, make sure to include me @AlexaBourne and #CMHReleaseParty! Winners will be announced on Saturday.


  1. Hi again Alexa!
    Your series sounds so cool--and the idea of a virtual bar where your characters can hang out is marvelous! I still love the idea of a modern-day Scottish romance; I think you've got a jackpot idea. Here's to your publisher wanting the third book. And, tell us more about this "new genre"!!

  2. I'm in love with the characters from Carry Me Home! I'm jumping on the band wagon! Can't wait to visit Cuan MacDougall Pub!

    Go Alexa !!

    The stories sound like a lot of fun.
