When combined with her poignant, complex, and vastly entertaining writing style, she is able to write one masterpiece after another,” stated Fran Briggs, Publicist to Michelle Deerwester-Dalrymple. “The Blackguard of the Glen is no exception. She does a superb job with depiction as her characters intersect through peril, pain, power and romance.”

Speaking on how she conceived the idea for the Glen Highland Scottish romance series, Michelle Deerwester-Dalrymple responded, “I love writing real figures from history into my books. The idea came after reading several Scottish romance novels and doing research on my Scottish last name. Focusing on James Douglas, King Robert the Bruce’s second in command, was ideal. I fell in love with him and all his mystery the more I read about him.”

Deerwester-Dalrymple takes her history seriously. She took the time to research and reach out to Scottish historians to ensure the accuracy of the period.

“I did enough research to make the story workable,” she explained. “I was fortunate enough to have a history scholar/reader comb through the book before it was published.”
