First I want to thank Romancing the Book for hosting me today! I’m thrilled to be here with you all! Happy Spring—which I can’t believe I just typed considering there is a few inches of snow on the ground outside my window…
I have been drawn to historical romances since my pre-teen years. I have an avid obsession with history. Wish I could travel back in time—even if it was only for an hour, a day, a week. Of course, I’m not sure I’d be able to stay there. I do like showering, gum and internet. I feel naked without my cellphone and I can’t get enough of the Game of Thrones, Spartacus, and The Walking Dead television series. BUT, I would love to walk through the halls of a castle, sit a horse just beyond the battlefield, dance with a warrior and drink wine before a raging hearth while a minstrel regaled me with his musical talents.
Alas, no one that I know has invented an actual time machine—except for authors. Through a book (whether I’m reading or writing), I can be whisked back in time. Anytime, anywhere. Meet engaging, fascinating, daunting, thrilling, charming characters—and introduce readers to the same.
I write historical romances and historical fiction—but I also write time-travel romances, where modern day heroines are plummeted through time and into the arms of a mesmerizing hero. I love watching how a modern day gal has to adjust to her new historical setting. And in a way, I (and my readers) can fantasize that time-travel can happen! (In fact, when I was in Scotland earlier this month, I hesitated before stepping within a stone circle! Just in case! Lol)
In my latest time travel, BEHIND THE PLAID (Book One: Highland Bound), we meet Emma and Logan. Their story spans three novels. Both have troubled pasts and their futures are uncertain. Both suffer from deep rooted pain, and through their connection, will learn to heal. Their chemistry is so scorching, even I had to take a break with a bucket of ice. Emma and Logan prove that despite being born five hundred years apart, the root of love and attraction have nothing to do with time—but within ourselves, our souls.
I would love to give away an e-copy of BEHIND THE PLAID to one lucky commenter! (Please be advised this book is for mature audiences only!) For a chance to win, fill out the Rafflecopter and answer this question…
If you could time travel anywhere for a day—where and when?
ABOUT THE BOOK:
He dominated her mind. She possessed his soul.
Emma Gordon escapes from a troubling marriage in which she’s completely lost sight of who she is. Desperate for independence, she leaves her husband while on a trip in the Scottish Highlands. Only thing is, she ends up hurled back in time to the 16th Century Castle Gealach and headlong into the arms of the handsome, intimidating Laird Logan Grant. Thrust into a world filled with treachery, danger and intensity she must summon the courage to find her way.
Logan is tormented by a dark past and harbors a secret that could tear his country apart. He’s consumed with the need for control which wars with his longing for harmony. Unable to resist Emma’s beauty and spirit and the calm that she invokes, Logan confesses he desires her—but only on his terms. He promises erotic encounters that will change them both forever, and quench their overwhelming desire.
Despite her own reservations, Emma longs to get close to the mysterious laird, even while she is desperate to return to her own era. She agrees to Logan’s proposal to satisfy her curiosity, but in the end embarks on a daring, passionate affair that rocks her to the very core. Secrets are uncovered, souls bared, spirits transformed. Neither of them can hide behind the plaid.
