My chat with Iain

Hello and welcome!

Today I have somebody I met quite a while ago and can’t forget.


He is quite a charmer and hails from the Highlands, he agreed to visit for a chat… and here he is.

Welcome Iain! Please have a seat!

he bows and takes a seat in the winged-back chair across from me …

wingback chair-white

and I serve him a glass of mead

How did you know?
I smile and wink
I have my sources

Lets get started…
he nods in agreement

What is your full name?
Iain MacPherson

Do you have a nickname?
Aye, the lady I kidnapped calls me Lord Keeper.

What is one word best describes you?
How can a man describe himself? You might ask those who best know me, my cousin Thomas, for example. Perhaps, ‘tis best, you do not ask the ladies.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
A white lawn shirt with a belted plaide of my clan colors.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Aye, perhaps too well, which is not always to my credit. 

What makes you laugh out loud?
When I leave a witty woman speechless.

What is your favourite dessert?
Of late, my favorite dessert is shortbread, uncooked, as the batter. The lady who I plan to marry threw a batch on me in a fit of anger. I was kind enough to share with her the batter than landed all over me.

What is your greatest fear?
That I will become my father.

What is your favourite colour?
The deep blue of loch Katrine which is the same color of the eyes that belong to the woman I love.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing, if I can help it.

What is the perfect romantic date?
An afternoon in a meadow where I once spent a strange and wonderful afternoon with a woman.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Perhaps, but I willna’ say where.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
My favourite smell is heather on a spring morning.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Aye, an English lass I stole from the holy ground of Montrose Abbey.

What is one word best describes her?
When I discover the one word that describes her I will tell you. She has no’ yet even told me her name. 

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
The authoress is contemplating writing the story of my cousin, Captain Thomas MacPherson. His mother was French and his father a Highlander. The woman he married…well, I will leave that story for another time.
I really hope she does!

Thank you for making this long journey to join me and also for answering my questions.

he bows and smiles and has my heart melting… *sigh*


I hope you enjoyed this chat and thanks joining me here.

Iain hails from the Highlands and came to life under the pen of Tarah Scott whose style of writing I love so much. The book is called “LORD KEEPER”


and is available at all major ebook stores

Amazon US ~ Amazon CA ~ Amazon UK ~ B&N ~ ARe ~ Kobo ~

No man bargains for war when he chooses a bride, but when he steals her from holy ground, he can expect nothing less. 

Iain MacPherson swore he was nothing like his father, but his kidnapping of Victoria Hockley, the Countess of Lansbury is the first step toward the same obsessive jealousy that fueled his father’s life-long feud against the chief Iain’s mother loved. 

A kiss, a midnight race for freedom, and a royal missive force Victoria into her captor’s arms. Hallowed ground can’t save her from the devil that followed her from England. Yet the Scottish lord who swears to protect her is far more dangerous.

Celebrating Snoop’s bday by releasing the first chapter. Love the Elven Chronicles and this upcoming book is another great addition to it.

M. A. Abraham




Liessen carefully followed Aredhel through the jungle. She was travelling fast and making no effort to hide her presence and he frowned at her reckless advance into known enemy territory. What was she thinking? He realized the Dragons had done a good job of sterilizing the area, but he could tell there were still some Demons wandering free in the forest. He was beginning to wonder if there would ever be a time when his people would be free of the scourge that continued to threaten their existence.


As Aredhel walked past the hiding place of two Demons, they jumped onto the path. They had heard of female warriors amongst the Elves before, but had never seen one in the flesh. They could hardly believe their eyes when she drew a twin set of blades to challenge them. Surely she couldn’t be serious? They couldn’t…

My chat with Torrent… and Marious?

Hello and welcome!

Today I have to share a very interesting chat. Visitors from the Elven Empire. They really surprised me, and they were hilarious. I expected only Torrent, but my first love, Marious showed up too.


I usually leave a hidden camera (in the teddy bear’s eye) when I am not in my chat room because you never know who might show up and this is what happened before I got there …


“What are you doing here?  Eniko invited me, not you.”  Torrent grumbles at Marious.

“Eniko always welcomes me with open arms, I know she will be happy to see me.  If you remember I was her first love.”  Marious replies with a smug grin. Oh how I love that grin … sigh

“I will remember to let Tam know about that.”  Torrent threatened.

“We were talking about it when we shared a meal with Eniko and her husband just the other day.  She thought that it was so sweet that we have remained friends, especially as we have included her in the circle.”  Marious chuckles.

Torrent frowns as he checks over Marious’ outfit.  Marious had donned a pair of medium brown trousers with a billowing white shirt that was unbuttoned halfway down his chest.  His long blond hair hung loose down his back.  He looked like he was out to charm.

“Who chose your clothes?  Larien?  You look like a model for a pirate romance novel.”  Torrent taunted.

Marious snickers. “It beats looking like a commercial for some leather garment factory.  Seriously Torrent, black leather?  How cliche, not only that, but it is at least one size too big for you.”

Torrent watches me enter the room, he smiles and bows, and takes one last shot at Marious.

“Rather slightly bigger than the way Liessen wears his leathers, that man has not pride, he leaves nothing for the imagination.  I can’t understand what the women see in him.”

“Tell that to the members of his Elite Squad and they will soon give you an answer that will make you blush, and I bet they can do it too.” Marious tosses me a wink that makes me blush as well before walking up to me and giving me a big hug and kissing both my cheeks.

“My lovely lady, you put the sun to shame with your beauty.  Tam sends her love along with an invitation to visit with us.  Just name the time and place and we will make sure you are taken special care of.” I am ready to melt.

Torrent tossed Marious a hostile look before smiling sweetly at me as he ups the anti.  “I am sure we can accommodate your needs just as well as they can.  All you need to do is say the word and Serenity will ask Alleria to send one of the dragons to fly you and yours to the Light Kingdom for some rest and relaxation.   Our home is your home.”

“I am sure your boys would love to have another couple to burst in on during the wee hours of the morning to see if they can catch them in their altogether.”  Marious coughs into his hand to hide a grin.

“My boys don’t do that kind of thing and no one sleeps naked in my house.”  Torrent defended his children.

“Well, maybe not since Serenity decided they had seen enough of…” Marious got no further.

“At least we weren’t covered with honey and feathers.”  Torrent interrupted.

Marious grins unrepentantly as he answers.  “I remember, that was twice as sweet.”

“You realize you are walking home.”  Torrent threatened.

“Not worried,” Marious answered.  “Daroth kindly loaned me his winged stallion when he found out where I was headed.  Said I would probably need it.”

Marious then turns to me and asks.  “Would you like a ride on a Pegasus?”

“I believe our lovely hostess would like to ask us a few questions instead of listening to you crowing about yourself through the whole event, which was, by the way, supposed to be MY interview, not yours.”  Torrent points out.

Marious turns twinkling eyes onto me and in an innocently sweet sounding voice asks.  “Have I offended you?”

I smile and answer.  No yet, but perhaps you can make up for your actions otherwise by helping me get a couple answers to some questions our great warrior might be reluctant to answer.

“You have but to ask and I am yours to command.”  Marious replied with a soulful expression that is belied by the humour sparkling from his eyes. He is bad… and I love it…

Is Torrent ticklish?


“I have never checked that out, but if you want to find out I can ask Serenity or supply you with a few choice owl feathers to experiment with on your own.”  Marious offers with a wink.

Owl feathers?

Marious’ eyes almost cross as he answers.  “Oh yes, indeed, you would be surprised how soft they are, and the things one can make you feel if it is used the right way.”  He winks again.

“Just wait until Tam hears about this.”  Torrent warns.

“Who do you think taught me?”  Marious chuckles happily.

Torrent blushes as he answers.  “I don’t want to hear another word on this subject.”

“Why not?”  Marious asks.  “Don’t you want to know what Tam…”

“NOT. ANOTHER. WORD.”  Torrent bellows.

I am laughing so hard by this time that tears are streaming down my face, but I pull myself together to ask.

So what is your favorite smell?

“Lemons.”  Torrent quickly answers with a quelling glance at Marious before adding.  “And the smell of bird feces on Marious.”

“Now that is just cruel.”  Marious retorts on a chocking laugh.

Torrent sticks out his tongue and I realize this could go on for hours.  Elves have no sense of time.

“Before we wrap this up, I want to know one word that best describes the love of your life.”

“Loving.”  Marious answers.

Torrent rolls his eyes at Marious and answers.  “Mine.”

As I escort them out, they are still at each other and I usher them on their way.

Thank you Torrent for coming by! And thank YOU Marious, you are right, I will always welcome you with open arms!


And there you have it! The Elves are always full of surprises and looks like they like to highjack my chats 😀 and I love it.

You probably can imagine I am still reeling from this one, I was like at a tennis match, left, right, left, right and barely got a word in. All in all it went quite well and I hope you enjoyed as much as I did 😉


For those of you who don’t know, you can find Marious, my first love in The Elven Chronicles, in Marious’ Story which is book 2 in the series by the amazing author, M. A. Abraham.


Torrent is pretty amazing too, he is Serenity’s Life Mate and their story is told in King’s Champion, book 3 in The Elven Chronicles.

I would like to thank M. A. Abraham for setting the chat up with Torrent. I got to ask her next time I talk to her if she knew about Marious tagging along. I have a feeling she did, but she can be like that, springing things on me, she really enjoys a good laugh at my expense… and so do I. I love her surprises, just as I love her books.

Watch this trailer for The Elven Chronicles, my first attempt at video editing 🙂




What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?

Two lucky commenters, chosen by Sexy Mr. Random, one will win a digital copy of MARIOUS’ STORY and the other will win a copy of KING’S CHAMPION. If you read the books, enter anyway, give it to a friend, or there is always swag. The comments will stay open until 3pm EST on Monday, June 23th, 2014. Good luck!

Hope you enjoyed my ‘highjacked’ chat with Marious and Torrent !

Till next time, read a book!

My Chats with Justin, Val and Ransome

Hello and welcome!

I can’t tell you how giddy I am to share with you my chats with not one, but 3 Divine hunks SQUEEEEEE

I had to go to Divine, Texas and meet them separately because we could not work out a time that was good for all 3, but I think it worked fine, because I don’t know if I could have handled all the Divine hawtness in one shot.

Without further ado because I know you are curious, I give you…


Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes. My beautiful wife, Charity. We also have two teenagers, Beau and Justine.

What one word best describes her?
One? Hell. Perfect.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Funny that you should ask that. There was a package waiting on the porch when I got home this afternoon. It contained the Viking costume I ordered for my next role-playing scene with Charity. I had to try it on before she gets home from work, so here I am… A chin strap on the horned helmet? Seriously? tears that crap off The leathers are nice and soft, though, especially since I have to go commando… gulp … he makes one fine Viking that’s for sure

What makes you laugh out loud?
My niece, Rose Marie Warner. Seriously. I’ve known my wife Charity since she was a pre-teen and that little diva is her all over again. Grace and her men have their hands full with “Little Miss Talk-To-The-Hand”.

What is your favourite dessert?
Charity makes this amazing apricot preserves cake. The first few bites get your taste buds doing that painful “yoing-yoing-yoing” thing but I can’t get enough of it.

What is your greatest fear?
Not being able to give Charity what she needs…and wants. Satisfying her is my first priority. Losing her would be my greatest fear.
I am thinking to ask him if he has a brother…

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Seriously? Have you seen my wife? I sleep nude even in the dead of winter. We keep each other warm.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Dinner out at our favorite steakhouse, dressed in our riding leathers so we can take a sunset ride on my Harley, then stopping in at the Dancing Pony because Charity loves to dance.
Yes I heard about their famous dances, I would love to join the girls… maybe one day 😀

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yeah. Our book, Divine Charity, is book #19 in Heather Rainier’s Divine Creek Ranch Collection.
Readers periodically asked if Charity’s story would ever be told. Heather wasn’t sure for a long time but kept an open mind because if ever there was a woman with enough love in her heart for more than one man, it’s my Charity.
Readers are going to meet several new characters in the course of reading Divine Charity and their stories will be shared in subsequent books.

Thank you Justin for meeting on such a short notice and give my hugs to Charity. I love all of Divine women, but she is my fave.

And now I give you…


Do you have a nickname?
Val actually is a nickname. Will I tell you my full name? Nope. Only one person is allowed to use it.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I just got out of the shower. At the moment, I’m wearing knit boxers and a towel on my head.
And I need my big drool bib… he is so yummy.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Since I wouldn’t mind showing up in future books, I’ll say yeah, she did. She’s pretty intuitive about…stuff.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing the family relationships I have. I love my cousins and their families and it would kill me if something happened to them or if those ties were broken.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
When I’m at home, I sleep completely nude. When Ransome and I are on the road, I wear boxers to protect his self-esteem.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Vanilla on a woman’s skin. It’s an old memory from school. I had a Home Economics class with a girl I had a crush on. We got paired together in a cooking class and she accidentally spilled some vanilla flavoring and got it on her top. I practically hyperventilated any time I was around her for the rest of the day until she caught me sniffing her. I’m still in love with her today and any time I smell vanilla it takes me back.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Sort of. Even though she isn’t mine in the romantic sense, let’s say she’s the only woman I want in my life.

What is one word that best describes her?
She still smells like vanilla sometimes.

What is your favourite colour?
Blue. The exact shade of her eyes.

Thank you Val for your time and I am looking forward to know more of your story.

And here is my chat with…


What one word best describes you?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I just came in from working on my bike. My oldest pair of holey jeans, which are now also grease-stained. I’m barefoot. No shirt.
I think he could wear a potato sack and he would still be eye candy, but I like the no-shirt view

What is your favourite drink?
On a hot day like this, beer that’s so cold it makes my teeth ache. That’s what I’m having right now.
he shivers as condensation drips onto his abs and my eyes are following the drops… I grab my beer and take a drink too

What is your greatest fear?
Never having a woman in my life to love for the long haul. I see what my cousin Justin has with Charity and…damn. Never mind. What’s the next question?

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing, when I’m at home. But to keep Val from feeling a little “less than” when we’re on the road together, I wear briefs.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Who fucking told you I was ticklish? Bet it was Val. Fine. My ribs and under my arms are very ticklish. Like, “poke me there and I won’t be responsible for your injuries” kind of ticklish.
I try to hide my grin… Nobody told me, it is one of my questions. He looks at me with an arched brow…

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Only one woman catches my interest anymore, and all she has to do is breathe.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I’m curious how Val answered this question. Did you ask him? I guess my best answer is yes, she’s definitely a part of my life. I’d give my left nut to have her in my arms, too.

What one word best describes her?
Loyal. Caring. Compassionate. Beautiful. And taken.

Thank you Ransome for your time and I am looking forward to know your whole story.


And there you have it, now you know why I said that it worked best meeting them separately… phew… fanning face


I would like to thank Heather Rainier for arranging the meetings with the 3 hunks, hailing from Divine Charity the newest book in The Divine Creek Ranch series coming this Friday, June 20th, 2014. And I am so excited.

Book Blurb
    Charity has adored Justin since he stole her heart twenty-two years ago and together they’ve built a steadfast love. She’d do anything for him, except ask for her deepest desire because the risk of hurting him is too great.
    The day he claimed Charity’s heart, Justin swore he’d never share her love, but time has given him a new perspective. Despite her attempts to hide it, Justin knows Charity has always loved his cousins, Val and Ransome. Now older and wiser, he wants to give her the same fulfillment her sister Grace enjoys with the men she loves.
    Seeing so many ménages in Divine gives Val and Ransome hope, and when fate offers them an opportunity they seize the chance for a future with Charity. When an innocent victim from their past adventures reaches out to them, they provide safe haven, not knowing that doing so will ultimately place the woman they love in danger.

I discovered the series just before Christmas 2013 and I am so glad I did, I loved every book in the series. If you read the series, you know what I mean, if you didn’t, I urge you to do so, 5 stars from me all the way.

Here is an excerpt from Divine Charity

    Justin stroked Charity’s nipple with his tongue. Her breath caught and her nipple tightened to a beaded peak. “Unspeakably beautiful. I have no other words. I really meant it when I said I’d do anything for you.”
    “I don’t know what to say,” she replied in a shaky voice as she stroked the back of his head.
    “Where do you see life taking us as Beau goes off to college and Justine becomes a senior this fall?”
   “What do you mean? Like traveling?”
   “Sure. But if you could make changes in our life together, what would you want?”
   A frown creased her brows and she shook her head. “I don’t want anything to change.”
   He smoothed her hair from her glowing face and cupped her cheek in his hand. “Share your ultimate fantasy with me. If there were no limits, no constraints, nothing I wouldn’t do that you asked of me, what would you ask me for?”
   She looked up at him, her heart in her eyes and said, “I’d want you, baby. Just you.”
   To be the object of her desire was satisfying, but he knew there was a craving buried in her heart. One that she seemed intent on hiding no matter how often it surfaced. He doubted anyone else knew but he could read her face and her eyes. Determined, he pushed her. “I’m ready for a new role-playing scene with you. Something completely different.”
   Heat flared in her blue eyes, along with excitement and need. “You are? Tell me.”
   She shifted beneath him and he felt it when she went fluid and hot all around his cock. He smiled, knowing he had her. “Remember late Saturday night at last year’s ROT Rally?”
   She bit her lip and nodded. “When we stayed overnight and partied with Dale and Natalie at their RV site?”  
   He grinned, almost able to hear the gears turning in her head. His dick tingled at the memory. “You and me, out by the pool, while our friends watched.” Most importantly, his cousins Val Teller and Ransome Cross had been there, too. Watching. Almost seeming to stand guard, as if that had been necessary.
   She drew in a shaky breath and then looked up at him and giggled. In a wistful tone, she said, “Yeah. I remember…vividly.”

My chat with Sabre

Hello and welcome!

Today I bring you Sabre who I came to know less than a month ago when he came to the public attention. Before that, his creator, Ms. Marianne Maguire teased us mercilessly with little snippets and pictures, wetting our appetites.

ImageSeptember’s country house

He invited me to the country house which is a nice change from my cozy chat room. It is quite nice, quiet, tucked away from any traffic and neighbours are far away.

I stand in front of the massive door, I knock, looking around. The door opens and there he is… after a few moments, I remember to close my mouth which was hanging open and probably making him think I am a crazy person LOL Go here and you will see what I mean, he is just gorgeous.

Welcome to our home! He invites me in with a sweep of his arm.

Thank you for agreeing to meet on such a short notice.
It is my pleasure, please have a seat. He shows me to a comfortable sitting area and I sink in a leather armchair, grateful that my legs didn’t give out.

Will Gage and Magennis join us?
Sorry, but they had to leave a few minutes ago, some unexpected business to attend to. But they promised they will come and see you soon.

Oh, that is too bad. I was hoping to meet them too.
I try not to show my disappointment and he is a gentleman enough not to comment, but I see the mirth in his eyes.

I know you are busy so I will get to my questions right away.

What is your full name?
Sabre Osvalder

Do you have a nickname?
Some call me Sab, for short.

What is one word best describes you?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Well, I am at home and relaxing, so, I have on a pair of jeans.
nice view I tell you

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Absolutely! Ms. Maguire listens well to us, if not, we wake her until she sees our vision. We can be bothersome at times but she’s a good sport.

What makes you laugh out loud?
My beloved, September, makes me laugh out loud on many occasions. I love to laugh but I believe I have a drier sense of humour, sometimes I laugh at things no one else finds funny.

What is your favourite dessert?
Mmm, that is an easy one, September, with a drizzle of chocolate, of course.

What is your favourite drink?
I love a good cabernet.

What is your greatest fear?
I fear for my love, being Queen there are many that wish to harm her.

What is your favourite colour?
I’m partial to the colour Amber, it reminds me of my lady’s eyes and I can stare into them all night.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
I love to be draped with September’s body, nothing else.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Anything that would allow me to see joy, happiness and surprise in September’s eyes.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
A warrior is not ticklish.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
The scent of my woman in the heat of the moment, it reminds me of the scent of every flower in the desert.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I don’t look at any other women, when you have what you want, nothing else can compare.

OK. So let me rephrase that. What caught you when you looked at September the first time you met her?
September is stunningly beautiful but it was her inner strength that drew me to her.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes, it has always been and will forever be my Queen, September.

What is one word best describes her?
That she is for sure. And gorgeous. And smart.

Click here and see her.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes, there will be 3 books to the Legacy Series. I am a major part within it, and our future, well, you’ll have to wait and see…..

I can’t wait to read more of your world.

I stalled long enough hoping to see Gage and Magennis, but no such luck.

Thanks again for your time and hope to see you again soon. Give my love to September.


And there you have it. I love the book and I recommend it to anybody who likes paranormal romance with a twist… or two.

another great Saturday chuckle 😀

My chat with Sorley

Hello and welcome!

Today I have somebody coming for a chat who became dear to me recently. Reading about his early life, it broke my heart, and I am glad he turned out ok.

Oh and there he is coming thru the door.

He is so handsome … sigh

Welcome, welcome! Please have a seat, it is so nice to see you again, don’t you look dashing!

I have a soft-knees reaction to a hunk in kilt, my heart goes pitter-patter… I think he knows the effect he has on me because he is smiling at me and winks… the rascal!

Let’s start then…

What is your full name?
I’m a court-born bastard and proud of it, so Sorley has aye been good enough.  Since my book, that’s changed some.  Now aware of my parentage, I’m proud to call myself a MacNab.

Do you have a nickname?
Aye, the Hawk.

What is one word best describes you?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
The proud blue-and-green plaid of my late lady mother’s clan.  I’ve aye favored the it, but only learned in my book that there was a blood-bound reason I felt drawn to the tartan.  My lady scribe wouldn’t care for me to give spoilers here, so I cannae name my mother’s clan.  You’ll have to trust that I’ve garbed myself in fine style for our interview-tryst.
I wish I could take a picture and show you, he is delish.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Aye, though she could’ve done without having my lady see me wearing a leper’s robe and smeared in dung.  I had good reason for the guise as you’ll ken from the story.  Still, the scribe could’ve let Roag and I ride out of the inn-yard before Mirabelle and her party arrived.
But that was so much fun to read that part…

What makes you laugh out loud?
Lots, and I’m glad of that!  A man who cannae laugh might as well be dead.  These days, my wife’s wee kitten, Little Heart, keeps us both well entertained.  He’s aye feisty and full of himself, but what really makes me roar with laughter is when he bites my friend Roag’s toes.  Roag visits us now and again and leaves his door cracked at night.  Little Heart takes advantage.

What is your favourite dessert?
A certain sweetness only my lady can offer me.  If I have to tell you what it is, you’ve never met the right man.
oh I know what you mean 😉

What is your favourite drink?
A fine and frothy ale at the Red Lion Inn.

What is your greatest fear?
A Highlander fears nothing, lass.  Though if pressed, I’d say waking up and discovering my book was a dream.  I dinnae think I could go on without my Mirabelle.

What is your favourite colour?
Blue.  In a thousand beautiful shades.  Anyone who has e’er looked upon the Highlands will know why.
I would love to go there one day, I’ve read so much about it. It is on my bucket list.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Read the opening line of chapter one of my book: “Sorley the Hawk slept naked.”  I’ll add that we Scots leave sleeping-in-bedclothes to our Sassenach neighbors in the south.  A real man needs only cold night air and a hot-blooded woman for his comfort in bed.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Walking the high moors with my lady.  We’d enjoy the clean, cold air, the rich scent of peat, the beauty of the heather, then we’d find a fine, sheltering outcrop, I’d whip off my plaid and spread it on the ground.  If you’ve ever been loved by a Highlander, you’ll know what then happens.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
My ribs, but no one has dared tickle me there since Cook in the Stirling Castle kitchens when I was wee sma’ laddie.  

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Peat smoke, and it reminds me that there’s no truer way to ken if you have even a jot of Highland blood.  If you do, just a whiff of such earthy-rich sweetness will make your heart pound.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her eyes.  They say everything.  Sakes, anyone who read my book kens I took one look at Mirabelle’s shining eyes at a certain feast hall celebration and I lost my heart, my soul even.  All the rest is fine, and there’s no’ an inch on a woman that I dinnae love, but it’s her eyes that claim a man.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
My Mirabelle.  Her wee kitten, Little Heart, owns my soul, too.  But dinnae you tell her.  There are some things a man keeps to himself.
My lips are sealed, but I think she knows already 😀

What is one word best describes her?

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Aye, the scribe calls the series ‘Scandalous Scots’ and it’s a 4.5 book series.  The start was an e-novella, ONCE UPON A HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS, Dec. 2013.  My friend Roag’s story is next when his TO DESIRE A HIGHLANDER releases later this year.

Thanks so much for meeting with me, lass.  Now I’d best be away.  The night is starting to draw in and I promised my lady a walk to greet the gloaming.  Thereafter, well, we have plans she wouldn’t appreciate me sharing…

I am grateful for your time. All my best to Mirabelle. Love her, she has spunk.


And there you have it. Sorley, my newest book boyfriend hails from TO LOVE A HIGHLANDER, which is book 1 of a 5-book series, Scandalous Scots, launched in December 2013 with an e-novella, ONCE UPON A HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS, by the awesome Sue-Ellen Welfonder.


Excerpt from To Love A Highlander

Set-Up:  Sorley and Mirabelle have met up in the castle chapel to discuss the finer points of the proposition she’s made him…

Mirabelle swallowed, unable to help herself.  “You are a charmer.”
A slow smile curved Sorley’s lips.  A darkly seductive smile, as unsettling as how he’d let his gaze slide oh-so-suggestively up and down her body.  Yet his boldness made her pulse leap.  It also warmed her in indecent places.  She touched a hand to her breast, feeling both hot and dizzy despite the chill dampness of the chapel.
He stepped closer, giving her the distinct impression he’d pounce if she so much as blinked.  “I am fond of women, aye.”  
“So I have heard.”  She kept her head raised, resisted the urge to wipe her palms against her cloak.
“Are you nervous?”
“I am relieved.”  She spoke true, just not admitting she was indeed jittery.  Her emotions were running higher than ever before.
She was also sharply aware of every ruggedly alluring inch of him.  Including the oh-so-virile bulge she could see through the edges of his cloak.  The glow of a wall sconce slanted right there, proving that he wasn’t just a tall, strapping man, powerfully-built and good-looking.
He was also just as well-lusted as the court ladies claimed.
Sorley the Hawk wanted her.
And he was already prepared to do exactly what she’d asked of him.

Mini-Excerpt (hot):

Set-Up ~ Sorley speaking to Mirabelle, shortly before their first love scene…

“If I cross this threshold, there’ll be no going back. No restraint.’ He gave her a final chance. ‘I will ravish you in there, as I have e’er dreamt of doing. Thoroughly, completely, and until we are both so replete, so sated, that we cannae move. Then we shall begin again.”
From the author
TO LOVE A HIGHLANDER has a kitten character named Little Heart.  The book is dedicated to the real Little Heart, a stray kitten who was brutalized and died of his injuries several days later.  He was named Little Heart for the heart stitched into his body bandaging.  His story upset me so much that I decided to write him into this book, giving him the happy ending he should have received in real life.  

A portion of the royalties will be donated to my favorite cat rescue organization, Alley Cat Allies.
