The Chieftain's Curse

I would like to thank my many readers for the lovely reviews they gave my bestselling Escape Publishing ebook, The Chieftain’s Curse. This book was the first Scottish medieval romance that I wrote, and I’m happy to inform readers in Australia and New Zealand that a print version of The Chieftain’s Curse will be on sale from bookstores in those countries on September 1st published with a slightly more colourful cover by Harlequin MIRA.

Chieftain by Command

From the bestselling, RITA nominated author Frances Housden comes the gripping, sensual, suspenseful follow-up to The Chieftain’s Curse…
Gavyn Farquhar’s marriage is forged with a double-edged blade. Along with the Comlyn clan’s lands, a reward from the King, he is blessed with an unwilling bride, Kathryn Comlyn, and an ancient fort with few defences that desperately needs to be fortified before it can act as a sufficient buffer between Scotland and the Norsemen on its northern borders.

The Chieftain's Fued

He may be young, but Jamie Ruthven has earned a name as a skirt-lifter and seducer, though, to his credit he never touches an innocent. Then Evangeline Buchan comes to the Scottish court with her gentle heart and beautiful eyes, and sets his world askew.

The feud between the Ruthvens and Buchans started long before Jamie’s birth, though neither he nor Evangeline know the reasons. Can their love reveal the secrets and heal the pain of the past, or will the feud prove too strong for even true love? Learn More»


Dear Readers,
This is the fourth book in my Chieftain series. Those readers who have been following the Highland Heroes in my series from the beginning since ‘The Chieftain’s Curse’ was published with Euan McArthur as the hero, will be pleased to know that ‘Chieftain in the Making’ is Euan’s son Rob’s story. We have followed Rob and his friend Nhaimeth from book #one. After getting to know both lads through three earlier books and my personal title for this one was Rob and Nhaimeth’s Big Adventure. I’m sure a lot of their fans will be happy to read their exciting story. I know Nhaimeth has been a favourite with many readers who will be happy to know that he will also be the hero of his own story. I can’t say more without writing a spoiler I just want you all to enjoy their stories as much as I loved writing them. Later this year book #five, ‘The Chieftain’s Daughter’ a novella will be released and I very recently finished writing book #6 ‘Chieftain’s Rebel’ that makes three books left to read in this romantic Highland saga. Enjoy, Frances Housden – Learn More
