4 – The Scrolls of Cridhe, Vol. 2 – My Chat with William

Hello and welcome!

Today I have another of the heroes from “Highland Flames” anthology. Read on to find out what my fourth guest has to say.

Welcome! Welcome!

What is your full name?
William Gillies

Do you have a nickname?
Yes, Will.

What is one word best describes you?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.

You caught me in training, so shirtless, loose fitting pants for easy movement, held up with a rope.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes and I hope to live up to their portrayal.

What makes you laugh out loud?
My love, Catherine and her silly ways.

What is your favourite dessert?
Anything that is sweet with fresh local berry’s and I like them juicy.

What is your favourite drink?
I have developed a taste for Honey mead, much like my deserts I like them natural and sweet.

What is your greatest fear?
Disappointing the ones I love.

What is your favourite colour?
Blue, the colour of Catherines eyes, just like the flowers in the fields around me.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Wear? Do people wear cloths when they sleep?

What is the perfect romantic date?
A horseback ride, away from everyone, with a picnic in the field followed by passionate love making outdoors.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Very, but in only one place, the inside of my hip bone, at the very bottom of my stomach muscles.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Hum? I wonder what this says about me but once again the sweet smell of open air, with the trees and flowers.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?

How she carries herself, a great smile and I do love curves.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes Catherine. I thought my life to be one of lonely dedication but that has recently changed.

What is one word best describes her?
No one word can do her justice, she is everything.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes, it is the first of the series. But I believe the next ones will go back and tell the readers more about my life and influences.

Thank you William for taking the time for this chat and I am looking forward to reading your story.


Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed the chat.

The Scrolls of Cridhe 2

Hello and welcome!

Today I would like to welcome again 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.

Highland Flames-bannerWith 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 Facebook page and Twitter to keep up to date.


On September 21, 2015 you will be able to read their scrolls in the second volume, HIGHLAND FLAMES.

Spirited women, braw Highlanders and burning desires
Seven new, stand-alone historical Highland romances, woven by the Guardians of Cridhe which bear this truth: “Even from the ashes of betrayal and sorrow, with faith, love and a little magic, wondrous things can emerge.”

The Pocket Watch by Ceci Giltenan
Maggie Mitchell believes her broken heart will never mend, then she meets a mysterious elderly woman with an extraordinary pocket watch. Transported to the past, will the man Maggie meets there take away her pain, or put her heart in more danger than before?

Lord Ruthven’s Bride by Tarah Scott
Lady Annabelle is torn between two men. The man she is betrothed to and the man who saved her life.

Jack: A Scottish Outlaw by Lily Baldwin
Jack MacFie is a thief—with a code. Even though Lady Isabella Redesdale is a hated English noble, when her carriage is attacked by another band of villains, his conscience forces him to kidnap the lady to save her life.
More alike than they first realize, Jack and Isabella both crave freedom from war and despair, but in a world where kings reign and birth dictates one’s station, freedom is not won, it is stolen.

One Knight Standing by Kate Robbins
Thrust together by desire and ancient secrets, William Gillies and Catherine St. Clair embark on a journey of discovery wrought with passion, intrigue, and adventure, revealing their true destiny.

Winter Fire by Sue-Ellen Welfonder
When Katla MacKenzie meets a dashing stranger in an enchanted place, she gladly gives her heart – and her passion – to the lover she only knows as the Lord of Winter.
Gunnar MacLeod can’t resist the bonnie lass and seduces her—or is he the one seduced? A long-standing clan feud comes between them, but a heart that loves is powerful, and Gunnar will do whatever he must to claim Katla as his own.

Highland Awakening by Kathryn Lynn Davis
Esmé Rose is content in Glen Affric, that is until a dream sends her on a perilous journey where she comes to know her own fears and strengths, and the transforming power of magic—even for a man who doesn’t believe.

Highland Destiny by Victoria Zak
Rory Cameron, an alluring Dragonkine Highlander, believes he has found his mate in Kenna Mackenzie. Kenna, running in fear from her betrothed, finds a secluded refuge in a glen far away from men—that is until a dragon swoops into her life. Feeling the burn of the seductive flames, will Kenna embrace the fire between them—or will she flee again?

The Scrolls of Cridhe Hunks 4 – My Chat with Malcolm

Hello and welcome!

Today I have Malcolm visiting…. and…

Chris Hemsworth1


*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.



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.

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.
