Meet the Author. . .


Cecelia Mecca is the bestselling author of steamy historical romance and also writes PNR as C.L. Mecca and contemporary romance as Bella Michaels. Armed with a Ph.D. and lots of chai, she spends her days weaving tales which whisk readers to another time and place.

With over twenty-five published historical romance novels which take readers to an admittedly romanticized time of knights and castles and to small towns in her contemporary and paranormal series, Cecelia is always thinking up new ways to tame both medieval and contemporary and bad boys.

Our Highlander-loving author, who is firmly House Stark and Gryffindor, can be found in Northeast, Pennsylvania with her husband and two tweens.

Brotherhood of the Border

A brand new Border Series spin off

Thirty years after the Border Series ends, a new saga of family, loyalty, and love along the turbulent Anglo-Scottish border begins. If you like multi-generational families, arranged marriage and slow-burn romance with a bit of extra spice, put on the top of your reading list.

The Border Series

For lovers of medieval and Scottish romance

The men of the Border Series wield swords and lead armies. They are alpha males unaware they are about to be brought to heel by ladies who refuse to choose between duty and love. These women want it all, and they aim to have it. Get ready to be swept from coastal England to the Scottish lowlands, from medieval tournaments to ancient castles in this ten-book series. Grab the prequel FREE here.

Kingdoms of Meria

For lovers a medieval or fantasy romance

One reader calls Kingdom of Meria “a mix between Lord of the Rings, Vikings, and The Last Kingdoms with more romance.” Escape to Meria, the capital to the south. Edingham, the Highlands to the east. And Murwood End, the wild north. Not a fantasy fan? Try it out! Readers say KoM feels “just like reading a book set in medieval England or Scotland” — a little something for everyone!

Order of the Broken Blade

For lovers of brotherhood and antiheroes

A blacksmith. A mercenary. An earl and a Scot. Five men, bound together by one horrific event in their past, risk everything to form a knightly order. Their mission? To rebel against an unjust king. Order of the Broken Blade is a 5-book historical romance series that launched in July 2019. Put book one, The Blacksmith, on your “to read” list and get ready for some steamy medieval romance.

Highlanders Through Time

For lovers of Scottish time travel

If you love sexy bad boy heroes with hearts of gold, heroines with the courage to fight for what they want, and love stories that encompass all time, then you’ll love this sweeping historical Scottish time travel romance series.

Co-Authored Trilogies

Enchanted Falls/Shaws & MacRobs
