Nicholas hails from “Lord Grayson’s Bride” by wonderful Tarah Scott, I love her amazing stories 😀

She can’t allow his love for her to destroy him…

When Nicholas Spencer, Earl of Grayson, returns to claim the woman he loves, Lady Josephine Knightly isn’t willing to forgive him for abandoning her six years ago. But neither can she resist the man he’s become.

Two days after Josephine signs the marriage contract she discovers a nasty secret that will destroy her family. The only way to protect them—to protect the only man she’s ever loved—is to disappear…or die.

Nicholas won’t make the same mistake twice and let Josephine Knightly go. She loves him. He felt it in their one kiss before he left, and in the single kiss she allowed since his return. But she’s doing everything in her power to sabotage the marriage even before it’s begun. Nicholas doesn’t care. If Hell is where he must live to have her, then she must stand by his side in the fire.

I can’t believe we are at the end of this tour with the hunks of “HIGHLAND WINDS”, Volume 1 in The Scrolls of Cridhe. This wonderful anthology will be released on November 17, 2014. That is in 1 day!!!

He hails from “A Jewel in the Vaults” by sweet Lily Baldwin.

She has never met a man like him before. Then again, he has never met a lad like her.

In 1802, Edinburgh’s poverty-ridden Old Town is rife with danger, but it is the only home Robbie MacKenzie has ever known. To safeguard herself against the worst villains of the street, Robbie conceals her femininity behind her shorn hair, dirt-smeared face, and tattered breeches. To all the world she is a lad, but beneath the ruse is a woman aching to break free.

Leaving his beloved Highlands behind in pursuit of his prodigal brother, Conall MacKay journeys to Edinburgh. There, he solicits the aid of a young street lad named Robbie. But Conall soon realizes that there is more to both Robbie and Edinburgh’s Old Town than meets the eye.

It is one of the stories in “HIGHLAND WINDS”, Volume 1 in The Scrolls of Cridhe. This wonderful anthology will be released on November 17, 2014.

The Scrolls of Cridhe Hunks 5 – My Chat with Robert

Hello and welcome!

Today I have another visiting hero from “Highland Winds” anthology.

I am prepared you see… I have my drool rag handy, glass of ice tea ready and a bucket of ice beside my chair, because as you know The Guardians of Cridhe like to spring heart-palpitating eye candy on me 😉

He walks in and… popping an ice cube in my mouth, I motion him to the arm chair opposite me… SIGH… Thank you Kathryn Lynn ❤

5 Robert

website

What is your full name?
Robert Preston Hamilton.

Do you have a nickname?
Weel, it depends on what ye mean by a nickname.

What is one word that best describes you?
Complicated. Or conflicted. Or passionate. Or curious. Scratch that last. Makes me sound like a heartless oaf—which I’m no’.
I have to tell you, I didn’t know what to think of you when I started to read your story, but the more I read, more layers were unfolding. One thing for sure, you are not heartless.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
My best rust-colored breeches, shirt, embroidered silk waistcoat and wool frockcoat. It gets chilly up here in the Highlands in spring.
I lean in to check out the beautiful embroidery. Very intricate and masterfully done.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She’s a weel-meaning lass who did her best to lay out my perplexin’ complex personality and fine good looks so the readers could understand me, ye ken. Twas a difficult job.
You sure did give her a hard time 😀

What makes you laugh out loud?
When British soldiers talk casually about how savage, brutal and uneducated the Highlanders are. They should be watching their own backsides instead.

What is your favourite dessert?
He blinks several times. Pears poached in brandy.

004

website

Never tried that, let’s have some now.

What is your favourite drink?
Whisky

What is your greatest fear?
Failin’ my country and my Caelia.

What is your favourite colour?
Golden-brown

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
What do YE wear? When ye tell me, I’ll tell ye.

What is the perfect romantic date?
A ride to a distant waterfall, where we unload a basket burstin’ with bridies, poached pears, ham, chicken, carrots and peas. Caelia and I wander along the river barefoot, and she’s no’ worried, because she knows I’ll not let her fall in the water. We wade in to our knees, laughin’ at the sound of the rushing water, and afterward, recline on a blanket, my head in her lap.

How ticklish are you?
I’m no ticklish at all. I’m a man’s man, and they’re never such a silly thing as ticklish.
Where are you ticklish?
I’m keepin’ that bit of information to myself.

What’s your favourite smell?
Newly woven wool before it’s set with dye. What does it remind you of? My mam and da takin’ it off the loom together before he died in Bonnie Prince Charlie’s war.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her expression. Is it serene and inviting? Harsh and cold? Seductive and alluring? Or blank, hidin’ her true feelin’s? And her skin. Is it white and untouched by the sun, or fresh with dew and tinted slightly tan?

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I want to have my Caelia in my life—her and no other—but she’s no’ verra willin’ to talk to me just now.

What is one word that best describes her?
Talented. Or innocent. Or strong. Och, no, I’ve got it: magic!

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Aye, tis a novella in SCROLLS OF CRIDHE, Volume 1, Highland Winds, set in 1765. Other volumes will follow, along with stand-alone books that tell the stories of related characters in Glen Affric, until the books and novellas meet with the timeline in TOO DEEP FOR TEARS, which begins in the 1850s.

Thank you Robert for accepting my invitation.

Robert hails from “A Tear For Memory” by Kathryn Lynn Davis. Ms. Davis’ website is under construction and will be up and running soon: kathrynlynndavis.com, so the link on her name is for the blog.

How can a seer paint ‘Truth’ when she’s lived a life of lies? Will she allow a man who has twice deceived her to open her heart to the truth?

In the Highlands of Glen Affric, years after The Forty-Five—the Jacobite rising led by Bonnie Prince Charlie—Celia Rose lives happily in Faeries’ Haven, where the lies that protect her from the past keep the magic and the faeries away. She finds her only magic when she paints, and “sees” things she cannot possibly know: she has been blessed with the Sight.

When a stranger comes on a mysterious errand, he threatens those who want to keep her safe at home. Little by little, he shows her new colors, new worlds and, most compelling—new passions. But he also brings danger, for he, too, lives a lie and is not what he seems. Still, danger comes in many forms, and the truth he offers leaves Celia with a difficult choice: to believe in those who loved and raised her; or trust this man, and learn the dark secret that could both destroy her innocence and forge in her a woman’s heart.

It is one of the stories in “HIGHLAND WINDS”, Volume 1 in The Scrolls of Cridhe. This wonderful anthology will be released on November 17, 2014.

The Scrolls of Cridhe Hunks 4 – My Chat with Malcolm

Hello and welcome!

Today I have Malcolm visiting…. and…

Chris Hemsworth1

website

*blink-blink* … ah… yes, Malcolm… ahem… yes… please have a seat…

Where are my papers? I can’t remember any of the questions… oh yes, there they are. Phew!

Welcome Malcolm!

What is your full name?
Malcolm MacDonald, Lord of the Isles

Do you have a nickname?
I do not know what that is.
A nickname is a familiar or humorous name given to a person or thing instead of the real name.
My wife calls me her love. Everyone else calls me Laird MacDonald.

What is one word best describes you?
Loyal. I will do anything and everything to protect those I love. Some people think I am headstrong, however I prefer to think of myself as dedicated.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes, although she needed to be reined in on several occasions. That lady has quite the imagination.
But that is what we like authors to have, imagination!

What is your favourite drink?
I enjoy ale or mead.

What is your greatest fear?
That the fragile peace I have forged between the clans will fall apart. Some men appear happiest when they are in some sort of conflict. It takes constant effort to maintain peace.
I know what you mean, I’ve met people like that, they are not very nice.

What is the perfect romantic date?
My wife enjoys a casual stroll through the blooming heather, followed by a light lunch beside the loch. We do just that as often as our duties allow.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I do not really want to answer that question. If Sheona were here, she would no doubt answer it for me, though.

615x200-ehow-images-a07-d2-ld-scottish-heather-bloom-800x800

website

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I enjoy the smell of lavender, it reminds me of Sheona.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
The sparkle in her eye, or a pretty smile. I like a woman who can think for herself. That is very appealing to me.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes, my wife, the lovely Sheona MacDonald.

What is one word best describes her?
Driven. When she puts her mind to something she will stop at nothing until she achieves it. And that is part of her charm.

Thank you Malcolm for accepting my invitation and answering my questions. Greeting to Sheona!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the chat.

4 big

Malcolm hails from “Spirit Stones” by Kate Robbins. A new author for me and I looking forward to discovering her other books.

Sheona MacLeod has a gift.

Connected to the spirit world, Sheona engages with souls long departed. Caught in the middle of the most vicious battle she has ever witnessed, she is captured by her bitter enemy. Armed with only her gift, can she escape his clutches and return to the safety of her clan?

Malcolm MacDonald seeks change.

Exhausted from the centuries old feud between his clan, the MacDonalds, and the MacLeods, Malcolm sees no future for any of them. His enemy’s intoxicating daughter stirs a need for peace within him that drives him to risk everything—except her.

Together, they can change destiny—if they dare.

At the climax of one of the bloodiest feuds in clan history, Malcolm and Sheona forge a powerful bond strong enough to break the shackles of prejudice and hatred.

It is one of the stories in “HIGHLAND WINDS”, Volume 1 in The Scrolls of Cridhe. This wonderful anthology will be released on November 17, 2014.

I love the smell of fresh bread, my grandmother used to bake these huge round breads with a crispy crust in the outside brick oven. Ah, sweet memories!

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Well, a gentleman would say a woman’s eyes. But, I am no’ always a gentleman. The first thing I noticed about me wife was her hips, then her ample bosom, and then her eyes. Her eyes captivated me from the first time I looked into them.

Aye. Moirra.

What is one word best describes her?
Intriguing

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?

Oh I am so looking forward to more.

Thank you for accepting my invitation for this chat. My greeting to Moirra and her daughters.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I really enjoyed this chat, very nice view, I hope you did too 😀

I can’t tell you his real name, I am sworn to secrecy. You will have to read the book to find out 😉

3 big

He hails from “Stealing Moirra’s Heart” by Suzan Tisdale, whom I adore to Scotland and back 😉 I read all her other books and listened to the audiobooks narrated by Brad Wills.

Moirra Dundottar needs a man. Much as she hates to admit it, it’s true. With a reputation for losing husbands, her prospects are slim, her outlook bleak. Until the morning she sees a strange man on the town square–a man who’s accused of being a thief and is locked in the pillory.

“Something tells me ye be no thief.”

The strange man gives her a quick glance up and down, flashes a brilliant white smile and laughs. “I am many things, lass. All around bastard, ne’er-do-well, and rakehell. But I be no thief.”

She didn’t believe he was a thief when she rescued him … until he stole her heart.

It is one of the stories in “HIGHLAND WINDS”, Volume 1 in The Scrolls of Cridhe. This wonderful anthology will be released on November 17, 2014.

The Scrolls of Cridhe Hunks 2 – My Chat with Gare

Hello and welcome!

Today I have another of the hunks hailing from the Scrolls of Cridhe.

May I present you Gare.
I do a double take… oh my lord … I shall have a talking with Sue-Ellen, she should have warned me … I have to sit … I am hoping drool is not showing on my chin … ahem

aragorn-1920x1080
website

What is your full name?
Gare MacTaggert of Blackrock Castle.

Do you have a nickname?
Nae.

What is one word best describes you?
Battle-hardened. Though now, the story over and with Mairi as my lady wife, I might say ‘besotted.’

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I favor a plaid o’er my shoulder and a sword at my hip. These days, again after the story’s happy ending, I am most commonly seen wearing a smile.
It is a very handsome smile too.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Aye, she did. She told us that our tale was a ‘gift book’ and that made us special for her. Said we ‘just appeared in her heart and she knew all about us.’ Must be true for we had no quibbles with her. That said, I would’ve appreciated a bit more privacy at times. You can imagine the bits I mean.

What makes you laugh out loud?
I have no’ laughed much in recent years as your readers will see when they read ‘The Taming of Mairi MacKenzie.’ But I’m relearning the pleasure of a good laugh. Most often it is my lady’s new ginger cat, Sprig, who sets me off. Mairi spotted him in Blackrock’s kitchens and claimed him for her own. Between us, I think it was Sprig who did the claiming.

What is your favourite dessert?
Aye, well, Mairi and I enjoy walking round a nearby loch and there’s a stretch of the way that has the best brambles. We’re aye taking along a pail to fill, but I vow I end up eating more than I toss into the bucket.

What is your favourite drink?
Heather ale. Especially if it’s made by Devorgilla. She’s a far-famed Highland cailleach who played a role in our story, as she does in many of the tales written by our lady scribe. Devorgilla has the best heather ale recipe in all Scotland. A shame she willnae share it.
Ah Devorgilla! I heard a lot about her. I like her. I have to say I never tried heather ale, but I will have to correct that.

All these new things and new words I am learning, my head is spinning… as I always say, google is my best friend and I love to learn new things 😉

What is your greatest fear?
Fear? Lass, you forget I’m a Highlander.
How can I forget, I am staring at one, and a very handsome one at that… sigh

What is your favourite colour?
The shade of gloaming. When it descends, the world turns so beautiful stones weep.

4-Linlithgow-loch-sunset

website

I agree, there is something magical about twilight, I love sunrises too.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
There you go again, forgetting I’m a Highlander. We need only cold night air and a hot-blooded woman to keep us comfortable in our beds. Aye, that means we sleep naked.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Any moments I can pry my lady away from Sprig. He isnae fond of sharing her. See?
he rolls up a sleeve to show the scratches on his arm

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I am no’ afflicted, thanks be!

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Anywhere in Scotland after a rain. One deep breath reminds me of why I love my homeland so much.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her eyes. Eyes that shine with warmth and goodness are all the beauty a woman needs. All else is secondary.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Aye, my beloved Mairi.

What is one word best describes her?
Big-hearted.
That she is, I love her.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
My lady scribe says that the story was the first of her ‘Return to Kintail’ series. Novellas she’s writing in one of her favorite story worlds, Kintail in the Western Highlands.

Thank you so much Gare for coming for a chat!
It was good of you to visit with me, my lady. Mairi sends her regrets, but she didn’t want to leave Sprig. She had an idea, though. We’ll set a place for you at our high table tonight – if you’ll join us?
I would love to join you. One of the things on my to-do list in life is to visit Scotland and sit with a laird at the high table.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the chat with Gare as much as I did. I learned a few new words, had to look them up 😉

2 big

He hails from “The Taming of Mairi MacKenzie” by Sue-Ellen Welfonder.

A forbidden love so powerful it could destroy them both.

Mairi MacKenzie can bring the dead back to life. But her fame as this special healer is a curse too much to bear, and she takes refuge in the ancient broch of Dunwynde, the Glen of Winds, her secret, well-guarded home. Many are her reasons for hiding from the world, allowing folk to believe she’s a banshee. Clan MacKenzie protects her as one of their dearest treasures. Only Mairi knows how unworthy she is of her clan’s devotion.

Sir Gare MacTaggert only desires redemption. Once counted amongst Scotland’s greatest warriors, he hasn’t lifted a sword in years because of a battlefield tragedy that broke his soul. All that is left to him is his clan and his home, and now he stands to lose them as well. Scotland’s crown wants his corner of the realm strengthened and so a King’s writ has ordered him to forge an alliance – through marriage.

Yet his honor won’t allow him to wed any woman, dead as he is inside. He seeks the aid of the Glen of Winds banshee, but before she can restore his will to live, they must face a greater challenge: the forbidden love that could destroy them.

It is one of the stories in “HIGHLAND WINDS”, Volume 1 in The Scrolls of Cridhe. This wonderful anthology will be released on November 17, 2014.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Now, why in the name of all that’s holy would anyone care what I was wearing? he laughs
We, the readers care, we are a curious bunch.
I’m wearing a plaid over a léine which ye might call a tunic.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Aye, I suppose she did. She knows me a tad too well, that one.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Answering questions about what I am wearing.
His laugh makes me laugh out loud

What is your favourite drink?
I have always been partial to heather ale, but Ceci, wild lass that she is has mentioned lemon-drop martinis more than once. I have no clue what a martini is but I would like to try it someday.
I haven’t tried those either yet, maybe next time I can make some for us. I’ve seen quite a few recipes, I kind of like this one.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing the woman I love.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Here we go again. I think ye just ask me these things to make me laugh. If I’m sleeping in my own bed, I wear nothing.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her eyes. Ye can tell a lot more about someone from their eyes than their words.

I agree with you, eyes tell everything.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
As I understand it, this wee story is the start of a new series for Ceci Giltenan. I think she sees a story in the future for Bram Sutherland and for my sister Anna. However, I refuse to think of a romance about my sister and if Ceci knows what’s good for her, she will leave that alone. Where Anna goes, trouble follows.
Oh, but I would love to read Anna’s story, she is such a happy bubble, she made me laugh.

Thank you Eoin for accepting my invitation and answering my ‘funny’ questions.
Well… Ceci told me I should come and I always listen to her, the same way she always listens to me he answers with a wink

I hope you enjoyed this chat, I sure did *sigh*

Eoin hails from “Highland Revenge” by awesome Ceci Giltenan.

Hatred lives and breathes between medieval clans who often don’t remember why feuds began in the shadowed past.

But Eoin MacKay remembers.

He will never forget how he was treated by Bhaltair MacNicol—the acting head of Clan MacNicol. He was lucky to escape alive, and vows to have revenge.

Years later, as laird of Clan MacKay, he gets his chance when he captures Lady Fiona MacNicol. His desire for revenge is strong but he is beguiled by his captive. Can he forget his stubborn hatred long enough to listen to the secret she has kept for so long? And once he knows the truth, can he show her she is not alone and forsaken? In the end, is he strong enough to fight the combined hostilities and age-old grudges that demand he give her up?

It is one of the stories in “HIGHLAND WINDS”, Volume 1 in The Scrolls of Cridhe. This wonderful anthology will be released on November 17, 2014.

The Scrolls of Cridhe

Hello and welcome!

I would like to introduce to you the Guardians of Cridhe and their Scrolls.

The Legend…

Long, long ago, in the time before time, seven sisters were called from the far reaches of the realm. Each brought unique talents, but had one common gift; the ability to weave ageless tales of love and courage. An evil witch coveted their gifts and locked them in a tower, silencing their voices upon threat of death. But the Highlands are enchanted, and magic will not countenance seven pure hearts such as theirs to be lost.

With no one else to hear them, they sang their stories to each other. Fate blew a braw Highland wind to their prison, and the sweet, high timbre of the sisters’ voices enthralled it. The wind gathered close their silver words as it raced past each day, and carried their love and goodness throughout the world…then across the ages.

Today, their words live on in the Guardians of the Cridhe, seven sisters who have sworn to preserve those pure and musical hearts so long as they live. It is said these seven descend from those ancient female bards. Only their words can bear witness to that truth…

Check out their website, Facebook page and Twitter to keep up to date.
