A RITA Nomination for The Lady and the Laird!

I am delighted and honoured to announce that book 1 in my Scottish Brides Trilogy, Thelaird_350 Lady and the Laird, has received a RITA award nomination from the Romance Writers of America! I am a proud member of both the RWA and the UK’s Romantic Novelists’ Association and I love the way that both organisations support and recognise the work of romance writers across the globe. Writing can be an isolated profession and it helps so much to have the encouragement and support of colleagues, readers and friends around the world. The romance community is a very wonderful place!


Congratulations to all my fellow nominees and a huge thank you to everyone!


  1. Congrats Nicola on your nomination. You certainly deserved it. I loved this book. The Scottish Brides trilogy is now one of my favorite series. I can’t wait to read the third book. Good luck. 🙂
