The Long and Winding Road Home… by Victoria Vane


Hi All!

It’s been a while since I’ve made any big announcements or had a new release, but that’s all about to change. As many of you know, I began my writing career in 2010 writing historical fiction (with strong romantic elements) and gradually moved into steamier historical romance in 2012 with my Devil DeVere series. Encouraged by my agent, however, I put historical romance aside for a time to focus primarily on contemporary cowboys with my Hot Cowboy Nights series from Sourcebooks and my Hotel Rodeo Series from Kensington/Lyrical Press.

Although I loved all of these books and wouldn’t change a word of them, after two years of trying to balance two genres, I’ve come to the decision to return to what I love best – and that has always been historicals.

After doing several collaborative projects together, (to include a couple of anthologies and two World of De Wolfe Pack novellas), I have decided to team up with Kathryn LeVeque’s DragonBlade Publishing for a huge HIGHLANDER saga that stemmed out of my personal genealogy research! Until a little over a year ago, I didn’t even know about my Scottish ancestry, but I have now traced those roots through my paternal grandmother all the way back to clan Ross in 12th century Scotland!

My first story will appear as a novella in the upcoming FORBIDDEN HIGHLANDS anthology, with more to come later this year. This is a huge saga that begins in the 12th century and will carry forward with my characters descendants in connected books through the 18th century. This is a brand new direction that I’m incredibly excited about!
