#MusicMonday with Jennifer Trethewey




I am incredibly lucky because 2 of my dearest friends are musicians. 


The Distillery: 


John and Susan Nicolson are married and together they make up an award-winning Celtic/Gaelic/Bluegrass band called FROGWATER.


Gullfaxi’s Ride to Taldale: 


They have written and recorded music inspired by my Highlanders of Balforss Series. So far, they’ve written seven songs based on Tying the Scot and Betting the Scot.

Declan’s Dream:  


They will be recording more for Forgetting the Scot and Saving the Scot.

Love and Honor:


When all is said and done, they will have produced an entire Sinclairs of Balforss album!

Taking the Tigress: 





Check out Jennifer’s new release Saving the Scot, out now!




Louisa Robertson’s father is furious when he finds her acting on stage. Now, she’s being shipped off to America to marry some stranger her father thinks will bring out the “lady” in her. Luckily, Louisa’s maid agrees to switch places with her! Her maid will marry the American and get the wealthy lifestyle she’s always wanted, and Louisa can do whatever she damn well pleases––for the first time in her life.

Highlander Ian Sinclair needs an army commission, and the only way he can get one is to safely deliver the general’s Daughter-from-Hell to her intended in America. Easy, right? It would be if the lady’s companion Louisa didn’t wear breeches and do everything the exact opposite of what he orders. It’ll be a miracle if the sparks flying between Ian and Louisa don’t set the bloody ship afire before they arrive in America.

But just when Louisa thinks her plan is going to give her the acting career she wants and a Highlander to boot…Ian discovers her secret.








Jennifer Trethewey is an actor-turned-writer who has moved her performances from the stage to the page. In 2013 she traveled to Scotland for the first time, where she instantly fell for the language, humor, intense sense of pride, and breathtaking landscape. Her love for Scotland was translated into her first series of historical romance novels, the Highlanders of Balforss. The sexy, adventurous first book of the series, TYING THE SCOT, is set to be released in November 2017. Trethewey’s primary experience in bringing the imaginary to life was working for one of the oldest women’s theaters in the nation, where she was the co-founder and co-artistic director. Today she continues to act, but writes contemporary and historical fiction full-time. Her other loves include dogs, movies, music and good wine. She lives in Milwaukee with her husband.
