Secrets and heartfelt romance in medieval Scotland . . .

Lady Tamsin Keith escapes a castle tower to avoid marriage only to fall into the arms of a mysterious Scottish knight. Sir William Seton is sent by the king to demand a secret book of prophecies in the lady's possession, but he soon discovers that beautiful Tamsin is a gifted seer—and the most stubborn woman he has ever met.

Thank you for visiting my website! I write historical romance and mainstream historical fiction mostly set in Scotland, stories inspired by my love of Scotland and all things Scottish . . . as well as my love of history as an academically trained historian who absolutely loves writing stories with heart and hope and authenticity, and who, well, just loves to write.

If you’re drawn to stories set in Scotland, you’re in the right place. If you love strong, compelling heroes with a touch of reserve or a dark secret to keep, men of deep intelligence who keep their power under wraps and shield their hearts, men who care about women, you’ll find them in my stories. If you love seeing such heroes find true love and healing with women who have the strength of will, the compassion, the independence, and the gifts to challenge and match such heroes, you’ll find them here. And if you love stories that conjure a historical time and place with authenticity and wrap adventure, romance, courage, and resolution together in a great, fun story–you just might love my books. I hope you do!

Browse around, enjoy the gorgeous covers, and check out my books and series set in various times in Scottish history – medieval, Tudor, Jacobite, Regency, and Victorian so far – and try some excerpts. In addition to writing historical romance as Susan King, I also write mainstream historical fiction as Susan Fraser King, including the story of the real historical Lady Macbeth (my deep research reveals a young woman very different from Shakespeare’s lady!).

Please take a moment to sign up for my newsletter. I’m a quiet sort so I promise you won’t hear from me too often, but I’ll let you know when something new is happening with my books and in my writing life. And check out the blog I’m part of as a founding member of the long-running group author blog, Word Wenches, where I post regularly with some author friends you might recognize. Sign up for that newsletter too – we’re a busy bunch of authors!

I’m grateful for this writing life that always brings me something new, different, exciting, and fun to do (even if much of that writing life is spent in jammies drinking tea and knocking my head against the keyboard–I mean, working diligently on my books). And I’m so grateful to have such wonderful readers. Thanks again!
