Thursday Titles: Daughters of Alba

So, I don’t like to toot my own horn … usually.  But I have to share this.

The very first novel I ever wrote is finally out, after a decade gathering dust.


Daughters of Alba is the story of three sisters in early medieval Scotland, and it’s been broken into three e-novellas.

Book One: Daughter of Silence


Aigneis, the eldest, has always been a dutiful daughter. An arranged marriage to the king is her ultimate test of obedience.

Domhnall Mhor is a great warrior and an imposing man, but inside he is just as timid as his fair young bride.

In the midst of running a kingdom, will Aigneis and Domhnall find the courage to love or will they let silence destroy their marriage?


Book Two: Daughter of Fire


Eithne, the youngest, has always been passionate and headstrong, as fiery in temper as her red hair.

Ruairi is a young apprentice smith with a shameful past: one he is trying to put behind him.

But when two volatile natures collide, will Eithne and Ruairi fight for their love, or tear their lives apart in the process?


Book Three: Daughter of Spirit


Ealasaid, the middle daughter, has always felt out of place. Her gift of prophecy makes her an outsider, and she was never made for a simple life as a wife, like her sisters. No one is surprised when she decides to become a nun.

Caomhin is an Irish monk and a talented scribe at the monastery of Cill Linnhe. Since marriage is not forbidden for the Celtic clergy, he and Ealasaid spark a tender romance.

But when disaster strikes their sea-girt cloister, will Ealasaid and Caomhin cling to their faith and find the strength to forgive the unforgivable?


Best news is that Book One is available for free on Kindle until the 15th!  Help yourself, and tell me what you think.

This is proof for all you discouraged writers out there that with perseverance and hard work, you can turn failure into success.  🙂

  1. Congratulations, Erin! I’m intrigued by your setting, as someone who lives in 21st century Scotland. So I’m hopping straight over to get book 1 on Kindle. All the best.x

      1. Ah yes, Canonbie. It’s a beautiful part of the country. Imagine your great-grandmother and I sharing the same name. There’s something slightly spooky about that.
