Get comfortable and read on…

Welcome, welcome!

Having grown up in a close family, the scent of freshly baked bread is my favorite scent as it reminds me of the mornings with my family.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
A lass’ eyes always catch me first, for they’re truly windows to ones soul. Second, their wit.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Aye, an amazing lass, Marie Alesia Serouge. A twist of fate brought our lives together. Who knew that one day the daughter of a king would give me the happily ever after I’ve always yearned for deep inside my heart. I’m blessed to have Marie in my life.

Strong and fierce. What can I say, she’s an incredible woman, and one word alone canna describe her.

Aye, “An Oath Sworn” is book 3 in The Oath Trilogy, with book 1, “An Oath Taken”, and book 2, “An Oath Broken”, featuring two of my close friends, Sir Nicholas Beringar, and Giric Armstrong, Earl of Terrick.

What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
With The Oath Trilogy completed, in August 2016 the Forbidden Series begins with the release of book 1, “Forbidden Legacy”.

Thank you so much Colyne for chatting with me, I am looking forward to reading your story.

As Colyne mentioned, he hails from “An Oath Sworn”, book 3 in The Oath Trilogy by one of my fave authors, Diana Cosby who you met already here on my blog in October when she stopped by for a chat.

Bound by honor to save a country they love …

The bastard daughter of the French king, Marie Alesia Serouge has just one chance at freedom when she escapes her captor in the Scottish highlands. A mere pawn in a scheme to destroy relations between France and Scotland, Marie must reach her father and reveal the Englishmen’s treacherous plot. But she can’t abandon the wounded warrior she stumbles upon—and she can’t deny that his fierce masculinity, Scottish or not, stirs something wild inside her.

Colyne MacKerran is on a mission for his king, and he’s well aware that spies are lying in wait for him everywhere. Wounded en route, he escapes his attackers and is aided by an alluring Frenchwoman…whose explanation for her presence in the Highlands rings false. Even if she saved his life, he cannot trust her with his secrets. But he won’t leave her to the mercy of brigands, either—and as they race for the coast, he can’t help but wonder if her kiss is as passionate as she is.

With nothing in common but their honor, Colyne and Marie face a dangerous journey to safety through the untamed Scottish landscape—and their own reckless hearts…

My Chat with Diana Cosby

Hello and welcome!

Today I have an author whose books I love a lot. She is also an amazing photographer and she shares her photos with her readers. My favourite pictures are of Liam, he just makes me smile.

8 - 11 - 2015 Liam and day lily

A retired Navy Chief, Diana Cosby is an international bestselling author of Scottish medieval romantic suspense. Books in her award-winning MacGruder Brothers series are translated in five languages. Diana has spoken at the Library of Congress, Lady Jane’s Salon in NYC, and appeared in Woman’s Day, on USA Today’s romance blog, “Happy Ever After,” MSN.com, Atlantic County Women Magazine, and Texoma Living Magazine.
After her career in the Navy, Diana dove into her passion – writing romance novels. With 34 moves behind her, she was anxious to create characters who reflected the amazing cultures and people she’s met throughout the world. With the release of her first two books in her new Scottish medieval The Oath Trilogy, An Oath Taken and An Oath Broken, both which hit bestseller lists in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom, as well as the release of the eBoxSet of the MacGruder Brothers series, she is now preparing for the release of the last book in The Oath trilogy, An Oath Sworn on 23 December, 2015!
Diana looks forward to the years of writing ahead and meeting the amazing people who will share this journey.

diana-cosby-pic

Welcome Diana Cosby!

What is one word best describes you?
Determined, focused.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Witty dialogue.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of horses. It reminds me of living in Alaska where I worked at a riding stable and often rode over the tundra with incredible views of the ocean beyond.

Favourite place to spend time.
As an amateur photographer, I love seeing what photos I can take, which can be birds, flowers, bugs, to out-of-the box pictures. I often share photos that I take on my Facebook Author page.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
For me, a good story is exactly that. Each genre offers a unique story focus.

Writing! What started it?
I’ve read romance novels since my teens. When I retired from the Navy, I decided to try my hand at writing the stories that I loved.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
It’s a toss-up between painting pictures and photography. I love both!

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
I have a general theme in all of my stories — all is not what it seems. In addition, my hope is that readers will be inspired by my characters and the struggles they overcome to believe in themselves and dare to go after their own dreams.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
My intended audience is readers who enjoy Scottish medieval romantic suspense wrapped around the history of the story’s timeframe.

What is next in your writing?
Next in my writing is the release of “An Oath Sworn“, book 3 in the bestselling “The Oath Trilogy” in December. Colyne and Marie’s story is a book of my heart, and I sincerely hope my readers will enjoy it as well.

Tell us about your current charity project.
One of my passions is that of giving back and helping others. As a volunteer for Habitat For Humanity, one day I was thinking how romance readers are AMAZING as is Habitat for Humanity. So, I thought, why not pair the two and help a deserving family receive a home? And, Diana Cosby’s Romance Reader’s Build A Habitat for Humanity Home fundraiser was born.
I contacted the Habitat For Humanity office in Grayson County, Texas, where I’ve had the honor of helping with several builds and spoke with Laurie Mealy, Executive Director. She embraced the project, and was thrilled at the thought of pairing romance readers, who love stories where heroes and heroines overcome challenges to make their dreams come true, with making the dream of home ownership for a deserving family a reality.

How it works:
As readers send contributions to Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County for the Romance Readers Build A Habitat For Humanity Home project, the home on the upper right side of their homepage on their website will fill in. The goal is to fund an entire home – $55,000. Donations can be sent via PayPal using the ‘Donate Link,’ or donate funds by mailing a check or money order to: Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County, 901 N. Grand Avenue, P.O. Box 2725, Sherman, TX 75091

I kicked off the challenge by donating $200. I have total faith that romance readers together are an unstoppable force, and as the stories they love, they will leave a deserving family with a happy ending.

Goal: Raise $55,000 to build a Habitat For Humanity Home. Now—$6,335!
That is such a great cause Diana!

My sincere thanks for having me as a guest author today. I appreciate everyone who stopped by. Take care, and my deepest wish is that you believe in yourself and dare to go after your dreams!

Thank you Diana for taking the time for a chat with me! Looking forward to more books and more pictures of Liam 😉

Thanks for joining me on this chat and I hope you enjoyed reading it. You probably remember me mention Ms. Cosby’s name when I had one of my book boyfriends, Sir Nicholas, from An Oath Takenbook 1 in The Oath Trilogy, for a chat in March 2015.

Ms. Cosby is not only a gifted writer, amazing photographer, but also a truly caring person. Check out the interview on one of my fave blogs, Booktalk with Eileen, where she shares another of her humanitarian projects.

Diana has many passions in life, but one that resonates in her life is that of giving. She firmly believe that each of us can make a positive difference in another person’s life.  She supports many, among them are:

The National Trust for Scotland, which acts as guardian of Scotland’s magnificent heritage of architectural, scenic and historic treasures.

Habitat For Humanity, which gives a deserving family more than a home, but a foundation upon which to build their dreams.

Semper Fi Fund , is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit to help with immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

Homes For Our Troops, assists severely injured Servicemen and Servicewomen and their immediate families through various venues to aid them in building a home that allows them live a more independent life.

The Navy SEAL Foundation, provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and their families.

An Oath Taken Cover

Sir Nicholas hails from An Oath Takenbook 1 in The Oath Trilogy by sweet Diana Cosby.

As the new castellan, Sir Nicholas Beringar has the daunting task of rebuilding Ravenmoor Castle on the Scottish border and gaining the trust of the locals—one of whom wastes no time in trying to rob him. Instead of punishing the boy, Nicholas decides to make him his squire. Little does he know the thieving young lad is really…a lady.

Lady Elizabet Armstrong had donned a disguise in an attempt to free her brother from Ravenmoor’s dungeons. Although intimidated by the confident Englishman with his well-honed muscles and beguiling eyes, she cannot refuse his offer.

Nicholas senses that his new squire is not what he seems. His gentle attempts to break through the boy’s defenses leave Elizabet powerless to stem the desire that engulfs her. And when the truth is exposed, she’ll have to trust in Nicholas’s honor to help her people—and to surrender to his touch…

Read an excerpt by following this link, where you will find all the buy links also.

Here is my review: “Wow! My heart is still galloping, the story is so intense. Love Nicholas, he is a fair, honourable man, charged by his King to put right the wrongs done by his predecessor. Except Elizabet turns his world upside down, in more ways than one and then she steals his heart. Loved how the story unfolds, the unexpected twists, the chemistry between Nicholas and Elizabet. You got to read this book!!! I am looking forward to the next one.” 5 stars
