Lady Lily MacLeod has had enough of her oldest brother's meddling. While in London, Rory MacLeod, duke of Skye has promised his sister to an earl who is twice her age in hopes of taming his unruly sister. An arranged marriage where husbands view their wives as simply a broodmare in hopes of producing an heir. In a desperate attempt to avoid her fate, Lily flees and finds herself hiding on a train bound for Edinburgh.
Tobias Campbell, duke of Aberdeen is unsure what to make of the filthy stowaway found hiding on his rail car. Part of the well crafted tale she tells rings true, but Tobias is certain the chit has secrets. Secrets he intends to uncover.

Desperate times call for desperate measures and Lily and Tobias aren't the only ones caught up in this battle of strong wills and love.

What he doesn't expect is to run into a neighbor from Skye who is traveling with his red haired, temptress of a niece. Mac immediately finds he attraction far stronger than simple lust.

The bliss of married life is ripped apart by betrayal of the worst kind. His sister is kidnapped and forced into a marriage with only one purpose. Money. Even worse is who is behind it all.
With his own reputation and that of his family and clan at stake, Rory must carefully negotiate his sister's return without the world finding out about his secret. Not only could it bring shame to everyone he holds dear, it would mean his ruination and worse.
A Scottish tale of privateers, whiskey, handsome men in kilts, family, and the fiery young woman who dared to love a MacLeod.
As the fourth MacLeod son, Donnan MacLeod does not have to take on the responsibilities his older siblings do. He is free to keep his business private. As a privateer, he sails the channel looking for smugglers. Very elite smugglers.
It's not until he returns to Skye for his mother's birthday that Donnan begins to lose control of his life. And it's all because of a woman, the one woman he's loved since childhood. The woman he desires above all others - that is, should he ever think of taking a wife.
Rosalind, strong willed and opinionated far more than most, is determined to find out what Donnan is hiding. Never before had they kept things from each other, but Rosalind is convinced he's keeping something huge from her.
Everything changes in the blink of an eye.
Stowing away in the back of Donnan's coach, Rosalind changes their lives forever. The adventure begins...
I've always been a creative individual. Writing is just a facet of that creativity...
My careers in public relations in and around the entertainment industry, photography, editing, artist management, modeling and special event planning all elevated my passion for writing, not to mention gave me a treasure trove for story lines.
I write women's fiction; contemporary romance (as Jamie Salisbury) and historical romance (as JR Salisbury) which is ever evolving. I am fortunate enough that writing (and marketing of said product(s)) is my full-time job, although I always have one or two other projects going at the same time.
I now live in a suburb of Atlanta. Some of my other interests include photography, equestrianism, reading, and of course, travel.
I sincerely hope my writing will entertain, enlighten, and inspire others to pick up the pen and pursue their own dreams. I love to be contacted by readers, writers, and history buffs.
