30 days of Highlanders: Day 13: Author Feature: Julianne Maclean

May 8, 2011

Fact #1: I once went sailing aboard this schooner - the Bluenose II - with Prince Edward when he visited Canada. The interesting thing is, my agent, Paige Wheeler, was visiting Halifax at the same time and also met him, and was there when the boat sailed off, so we likely crossed paths on the wharf. This was almost 20 years ago, and we only discovered this after working together for seven years. It sure is a small, freaky world.

Fact #2: I was a DJ in a dance club during my university days. I worked every Saturday night playing 80's dance tunes like Push It and Bizarre Love Triangle. I even won third place in a beat mixing competition. I was the only girl spinning records in the Halifax clubs at the time.

Fact #3: One of my summer jobs during college: I was a tour guide on the Haligonian II - a historic boat cruise around Halifax Harbour. "Over on your left, we have the site of the Halifax Explosion, which occurred on December 6, 1917..." Summer jobs don't get much better than that.

Fact #4: I was the Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Queen in 1986. This picture was taken at Grand Pre, Nova Scotia. I'm holding an Acadian flag and greatly enjoying my two handsome escorts.

The Highlander Trilogy Book One


Lady Amelia Templeton would rather die than surrender to a man like Duncan MacLean. He is the fiercest warrior of his clan—her people’s sworn enemy—and tonight he is standing over her bed. Eyes blazing, muscles taut, and battle axe gleaming, MacLean has come to kill Amelia’s fiancĂ©. But once he sees the lovely, innocent Amelia, he decides to take her instead…


Stealing the young bride-to-be is the perfect revenge against the man who murdered Duncan’s one true love. But Lady Amelia turns out to be more than a pawn of vengeance and war. This brave, beautiful woman touches something deep in Duncan’s soul that is even more powerful than a warrior’s fury. But when Amelia begins to fall in love with her captor—and surrenders in his arms—the real battle begins…

Short Story Prequel to the Highlander Trilogy

He is Alexander MacLean, a fearsome Highland warrior fighting for his true Scottish King. She is Elizabeth Curtis, a beautiful Englishwoman who wears the scarlet uniform of an English soldier and wields a sword like a seasoned fighter on the battlefield.

Enemies meet and passions The Rebel

The Highlander Trilogy Book Two


With his tawny mane, battle-hewn brawn, and ferocious roar, Angus “The Lion” MacDonald is the most fearsome warrior Lady Gwendolen has ever seen—and she is his most glorious conquest. Captured in a surprise attack on her father’s castle, Gwendolen is now forced to share her bed with the man who defeated her clan. But, in spite of Angus’s overpowering charms, she refuses to surrender her innocence without a fight…


With her stunning beauty, bold defiance, and brazen smile, Gwendolen is the most infuriating woman Angus has ever known—and the most intoxicating. Forcing her to become his bride will unite their two clans as one. But conquering Gwendolen’s heart will take all his skills as a lover. Night after night, his touch sets her on fire. Kiss after kiss, his hunger fuels her passion. But, as Gwendolen’s body betrays her growing love for Angus, a secret enemy plots to betray them both…

It's so cool hearing you talking about Halifax. I was born there, moved away and then moved back and lived in Shearwater(Next to Fishermans Cove) for 5 years.
I am buying your books for sure now that I know you are a fellow Nova Scotian :D

I am a huge fan of Juliane's and I can't wait to start her highlander series. These books look so good and have great hunky men on the covers.
