My Chat with Tadhg …YUMYUMYUM

Hello and welcome!

Thanks again for joining me in my chat room.

Today I have somebody who I met very recently, I fell in love in the first book of the series and after reading the second book which was his story, he is locked forever in my heart. I anticipated all week his arrival ever since Miss Ceci told me that he is coming.

And here he is, be still my heart, he is so handsome… I just hope I don’t get tongue tied… wish me luck.

Come in, come in. Thank you for accepting my invitation for a chat. Have a seat.

He bows, then takes a seat in the high back chair across from me.

What is your full name?
Tadhg Matheson, Laird of Clan Matheson.

I am ready to melt just listening to his voice, I love the Scottish accent… sigh

Do you have a nickname?
My friends just call me Tadhg, that is pronounced TIEg

What is one word best describes you?
Hmmm, I suppose that depends on one’s point of view but I would have to say loyal.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Now lass, I can’t imagine why they would want to know that.

I can see you, but they can’t and I know they are always curious.
I am wearing what I always wear, a full-sleeved tunic, called a léine in Gaelic that reaches my knees and a length of plaid belted at my waist and pinned at my shoulders.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Och lass, talk has reached my ears that I have been called the perfect man. I don’t think such a beast exists, so she may have polished my edges a bit. However, I do love my wife with all my heart and I try to be a fair and noble leader.
I think you are perfect …. sigh

What makes you laugh out loud?
I laugh at a lot of things but I suppose my greatest joy comes from children. Their enthusiasm and willingness to simply experience life is refreshing.

What is your favourite dessert?
I love tarts, particularly berry tarts with a bit of fresh cream on them.

Baking is not my strength, I am glad my friends do bake, but I make some really good raspberry whipped cream, here, taste this.


He looks curiously at it, smells it and then tastes it.

Tastes really good.
I know, raspberries are my favourite.

What is your favourite drink?
It depends on the occasion. As a general rule I enjoy good, mellow ale. However, I would never say no to a drop of fine, aged whisky.

What is your greatest fear?
Ah lass, what is every man’s greatest fear? I fear not being able to protect and care for my family. They are my world.

What is your favourite colour?
At one time, I would have said green. Now, there is nothing more beautiful than the silver grey color of my lovely wife’s eyes. 

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Have ye ever seen my wife? All I wear to bed is a smile.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Date? Ah, ye mean the courting ritual in which modern folks engage? Well, I can’t say I have ever been on a date, but I suppose slipping away to someplace private with my sweet Mairead might be fun. Perhaps taking a wee snack and a skin of wine to share would be nice.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I am not ticklish. Well, perhaps I am a little ticklish under the arms. 

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the fragrance that belongs solely to my wife. It is the fresh clean aroma of soap, herbs and some unique aroma that is hers alone. When I smell it, I know I am home. I am with those I love most in the world.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her eyes. I have already told ye, I find my wife’s eyes captivating. I think a woman’s soul and beauty are most profoundly revealed in her eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Aye lass. My wee wife Mairead is the heart of my heart.

What is one word best describes her?
Strong. She doesn’t always believe that, but I know it is true. She has the heart of a warrior.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
My book is the second book in the Duncurra series. The third book is about my old friend, Fingal MacIan. He and I trained together under Laird Chisholm. King David II has plans for Fingal and I do not envy him. He is being asked to marry Malcolm MacLennan’s heir and lead his clan. The problem is, he is the last man on the face of the earth that she wants to marry. Still, he is up to this task. If anyone can win the heart of a reluctant lass, it is Fingal.

I look forward to see what happens to Fingal.

Thanks again for making the time for the chat, I know you are a busy man. Sending my love to Mairead, she truly is amazing.


And there you have it, I hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did.

Tadhg hails from “Highland Courage”, the second book in the Duncurra series by the awesome Ceci Giltenan.


Amazon • B&N • Kobo •

Her parents want a betrothal, but Mairead MacKenzie can’t get married without revealing her secret and no man will wed her once he knows.
Plain in comparison to her siblings and extremely reserved, Mairead has been called “MacKenzie’s Mouse” since she was a child. No one knows the reason for her timidity and she would just as soon keep it that way. When her parents arrange a betrothal to Laird Tadhg Matheson she is horrified. She only sees one way to prevent an old secret from becoming a new scandal.

Tadhg Matheson admires and respects the MacKenzies. While an alliance with them through marriage to Mairead would be in his clan’s best interest, he knows Laird MacKenzie seeks a closer alliance with another clan. When Tadhg learns of her terrible shyness and her youngest brother’s fears about her, Tadhg offers for her anyway.

Secrets always have a way of revealing themselves. With Tadhg’s unconditional love, can Mairead find the strength and courage she needs to handle the consequences when they do?

The first book in the series, “Highland Solution” is where I first met Tadhg and he captured my attention. Make sure you are sign up at BookBub, this title will be on sale for 99ç on July 21st.


Amazon • B&N • Kobo • Audible •

Laird Niall MacIan needs Lady Katherine Ruthven’s dowry to relieve his clan’s crushing debt but he has no intention of giving her his heart in the bargain.

Niall MacIan, a Highland laird, desperately needs funds to save his impoverished clan. Lady Katherine Ruthven, a lowland heiress, is rumored to be “unmarriageable” and her uncle hopes to be granted her title and lands when the king sends her to a convent. King David II anxious to strengthen his alliances sees a solution that will give Ruthven the title he wants, and MacIan the money he needs. Laird MacIan will receive Lady Katherine’s hand along with her substantial dowry and her uncle will receive her lands and title.

Lady Katherine must forfeit everything in exchange for a husband who does not want to be married and believes all women to be self-centered and deceitful. Can the lovely and gentle Katherine mend his heart and build a life with him or will he allow the treachery of others to destroy them?
