Author Biography

Amazon best-selling novelist Dorothy Wiley is the author of four books, including her highly-acclaimed debut novel Wilderness Trail of Love, the first in her American Wilderness Series Romances. Called a “deft new writer of intelligent romantic fiction,” Wiley enjoys writing action-packed romantic adventures set in the late 18th century American wilderness. Her books celebrate the rich historical heritage of the frontier and the courageous settlers who shaped our country.

Like Wiley’s compelling heroes, who from the onset make it clear they will not fail despite the adversities they face, this author is likewise destined for success. In 2014 and 2015, her novels won four awards, notably an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarter-finalist, a Readers' Choice Gold Medal, and a Historical Novel Society Editor’s Choice. Her books continue to earn five-star ratings from readers and high praise from reviewers.

The daughter of a talented artist, Wiley inherited her father’s creativity. Raised in southern California, she attended college at The University of Texas in Austin, Texas. She graduated with honors, receiving a bachelor of journalism, and grew to dearly love both Texas and a 7th generation Texan, her husband Larry Wiley. Her husband’s courageous ancestors, early pioneers of Kentucky and Texas, provided the inspiration for her novels.

After a distinguished career in corporate marketing and public relations, she is living her dream—writing historical romances. Wiley is currently at work on a new book.

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Frontier Highlander Vow of Love by Dorothy Wiley is a story of finding love in the most unexpected place and time. Artis MacKay's life was destroyed along with her village in Scotland. Patrick Steller, the Countess of Sutherland's estate manager, burnt her village and killed her parents. She was forced to live as a servant in Virginia in a slave plantation. Her life had no relief and freedom was far out of reach. She was granted freedom and a piece of land in Kentucky after seven hard years. She expected her life to be free and uneventful. She wasn't expecting love. But love did come.

Bear MacKee once lived in the beautiful Highlands. But his parents were killed by a horrible disease on the journey to the colonies, and he was left alone in the world. When he was adopted by the Wyllies family, he found hope again. After watching his adopted family find love, he is ready to settle down and have a partner who will understand him. He finds all that and more with Artis. But the foes of the past and some new enemies are hell bent on destroying their lives. Can Bear and Artis keep their love alive, or will they fall prey to the evil their enemies invoke?

The Frontier Highlander Vow of Love by Dorothy Wiley was an interesting novel. Although I had not read the other three novels in the series, I had no difficulty in understanding Bear's relationship with his adopted family. Bear is a well developed character and a brother that we all wish to have. Artis and her devastated life was very emotional and felt like a true story, so kudos to Dorothy Wiley for managing that. The story will touch your heart and reach out to people whose lives have suffered significant setbacks such as those experienced by Artis--the Highland clearances and indentured servitude. Awesomely written and the well formed sentences made it perfect.
