Virtue and Valor

Highland Heather Romance A Scot Series, Book 2

perf5.000x8.000.indd

Bartholomew Yancy never expected to inherit an English earldom and had no intention of marrying. Now, the Earl of Ramsbury and last in his line, he’s obligated to resign his position as England’s War Secretary, find a wife, and produce an heir. Only one woman holds the least appeal: Isobel Ferguson, an exquisite Scotswoman. Brought to Scotland to mediate between feuding clans, he doggedly woos her.

Disillusioned with men pursuing her for her attractiveness, rather than her unusual intellect, Isobel has all but abandoned any hope of finding a husband in the Highlands. Not only does she believe Yancy no different than her other suitors, he’s a notorious rake. She’s been told he’s practically betrothed. Therefore, his interest in her cannot possibly be honorable, and so she shuns his attentions.

When Isobel is mistakenly abducted by a band of rogue Scots, Yancy risks his life to rescues her. To salvage her compromised reputation, her brother and father insist she marry him. Yancy readily agrees, but Isobel—knowing full well she’s fated for spinsterhood by refusing his offer— won’t be coerced into marriage.

 

Can love unite a reluctant earl and a disenchanted beauty?

About Collette

Bestselling,Collette Cameron award-winning, and multi-published historical author Collette Cameron was born and raised in a small town along the northern Oregon coast. To this day, the beach continues to remain one of her favorite retreats. If you’ve ever lived near the ocean, you understand the irresistible, captivating draw of the sea! An enthusiast of times gone by, Collette currently writes Regency and Scottish historical romances.

A lifelong resident of small towns, she’s also been known to venture to parts of Europe. Her favorite destinations? England, France and Scotland of course! There she can indulge her passion for exploring opulent manors and centuries old castles, in addition to scrutinizing anything even remotely related to the Georgian, Regency or Victorian eras! Plus, she does so enjoy those Highlanders’ kilts.

Her Victorian farmhouse and profusion of gardens—English, butterfly, rock, and water— are all testaments to her ongoing love affair with flowers, lace, songbirds, birdhouses, rocks, and of course—teacups! Having dabbled in interior decorating in her youth, Collette graduated summa cum laude from Oregon State University and has a Master’s degree in teaching.

Some of Collette’s favorite things include unique blends of coffees and teas, Cadbury Milk Chocolates, inspirational quotes, trivia, and scented candles; especially lavender and vanilla.

Her Christian faith, husband, three adult children, and five miniature dachshunds complete her life quite nicely! When she’s not teaching or writing, Collette enjoys amateur photography, bird watching, gardening, interior decorating, rock-hunting, or salmon fishing on the Columbia River.

Virtue and Valor (Highland Heather Romancing a Scot, #2)MY THOUGHTS:

#2 in the “Highland Heather Romancing the Scot”, but can be read as a stand alone.
Fast paced, passion filled tale of love and romance.
I love everything about this book and this series, from the setting, to the characters to the storyline. Yes, I enjoy Highlanders and their perty Lasses! Once again, Ms. Cameron has shown her fans what it’s like to read a deliciously wicked tale and come away with a very good feeling. Well written with plenty of twists and turns, passionate kisses, with a compelling, intriguing story. Well done! I can’t wait for the next installment of “Highland Heather Romancing the Scot “. Oh, the secondary characters aren’t to shabby either. A must read and a keeper! This one’s been a long time coming, but well worth the wait, I believe!

MY THOUGHTS:

Simply WOW! An amazing addition to the “Echo Platoon” series. “Hard Landing” is Book 2 in the amazing “Echo Platoon” series, but can be read as a stand alone, although, I would suggest reading Book 1 “Danger Close”.

Fast paced, action packed, thrills and chills tale of passion, danger, suspense, mystery and romance.
I love the way the H/H find their HEA, through all the trails and tribulations and dangerous encounters. All is not what has it seems!

Ms. Melton, just keeps getting better and better, which I don’t know how, she is a excellent storyteller, now. Like a fine wine, Ms. Melton’s stories gets better with age! A story in which, pulls the reader into the pages of her stories and holds them in awe. Her characters will capture any reader’s attention and holds them here. The storyline is more than fantastic, it is intriguing, interesting, and realistic. Well written with vivid descriptions and the knowledge of Military precision and excellence. From the first page to the last page, Ms. Melton, writes with passion, and enthusiasm. A must loved story and author! Any fans of Military Suspense, Romance, Romantic Suspense, and fans of an awesome read, will enjoy “Hard Landing”. Another hit for this author! An absolute delight to read and a series, I have thoroughly enjoy reading. I look forward to my next encounter with the THE ECHO PLATOON SERIES and their team! Well done! A keeper and a must read!

GIVEAWAY AND INTERVIEW KATHARINE ASHE….

MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PROUDLY PRESENTS:

AWARD- WINNING HISTORICAL ROMANCE AUTHOR: KATHARINE AHSE

Good morning Katharine, and welcome to My Book Addiction and More today!!

Good morning, ladies. Thank you for inviting me to visit today!

MBA&M: Please tell our readers who may not know you a few tidbits about Katharine Ashe?

KATHARINE: I write historical romances featuring daring heroines, dashing heroes, loads of adventure, and stunning sensuality. My new book, HOW TO BE A PROPER LADY (coming out next week!), entangles a man with a mission and a lady who refuses to be controlled in a delectable wager both of them just might win.

MBA&M: What made you want to write historical romances? Why Regency Romance?

KATHARINE: I adore the gloriously epic romances of the past, stories of sweeping love and noble deeds, of devastating sacrifices and spectacular triumphs. It’s all so exciting! Regency-era England offers a particularly delicious palate to work with. I revel in the contrast between the decorous order of high society and the vast, dangerous empire Britain was building at that time across the world. My heroes and heroines steal kisses in the shadowed corners of ballrooms as well as on ship decks, and get locked in embraces beneath fragrant rose trellises as well as wind-swept palm trees. The opportunities for dalliance — both deliciously familiar and delectably exotic — are endless!

MBA&M: Of all your books which character do you most identify with and why?

 

KATHARINE: All and none. Naturally there is a bit of me in each of my characters, and often the particular challenges they face come straight from my life experience. But none of them are me. More than anything, when I write a book I fall in love with the couple. Their thrilling journey together toward happiness drives my pen, and I become completely swept up in their relationship.

MBA&M: If you could change places with any character in one of your stories, which character and why?

 

KATHARINE: Oh, this is an easy one: Viola Carlyle, the heroine of HOW TO BE A PROPER LADY. I adore the sea, but I also adore fine living. Viola is both a scruffy sailor living on a ship and a lovely lady living on a lord’s estate, so she has the opportunity for both. Also, her hero, Captain Jin Seton, is the most devastatingly mouthwatering… But I won’t go there! Like I said, it’s the couple for me. Viola wouldn’t be who she is without Jin, and he couldn’t be the perfect hero without her. I love them both together.

MBA&M: Have you always wanted to be a writer? If not writing what would you be doing? By the way thank you for your wonderful stories!

KATHARINE: From the earliest I can remember I have written stories, especially love stories. My first was what we call “fan fiction” now, a rewriting of the children’s book Pretzel, the Longest Dachshund in the World with a much nicer heroine for poor Pretzel. And I actually do have another job; I’m a professor of medieval history. But even when I was in graduate school working hard on my PhD, I couldn’t stop writing romances. I simply adore telling love stories.

And you’re quite welcome! It is a great pleasure and an honor to be able to share my stories with others.

MBA&M: What is your life’s passion beside writing?

 

KATHARINE: My family—my husband, son and dogs.

MBA&M: How many books do you believe should be in a series? How do you know when to end a series?

 

KATHARINE: Each series has its own unique shape and size, I think. I like three-book series, but sometimes that’s just not enough, and certainly as a reader when it comes to characters that I love I crave more more more! As a writer too. I’ve brought back a number of characters from my Rogues of the Sea trilogy for my Falcon Club series because they were so much fun, but also because they asked for their own stories. (Seriously. I’m one of those writers whose characters talk to her.) Currently I’m working on my five-book Falcon Club series as well as a new three-book series that will debut in 2013.

MBA&M: If you can please tell our readers a few tidbits about your next project(s)?

 

KATHARINE: HOW A LADY WEDS A ROGUE, book #3 of my Falcon Club series, will be out on September 25. Road trip stories are my favorites, and this one throws a country miss and a hardened spy into a scandalously intimate adventure. I spent some time traveling through Wales while researching this book. Emerald hills, stormy skies, ancient castles… it was heaven, and the perfect place to get a winsome heroine and determined hero thoroughly lost… and to throw them completely in love.

 

MBA&M: Katharine, please tell our readers where to find you and where your books are available?

KATHARINE: I love chatting with readers about books and romance, and I always write back. My website is the best place to start: http://www.KatharineAshe.com . It includes links to purchase my books in both paperback and e-book format, my email contact, a place to sign up for my short monthly newsletter where I announce contests and book news, as well as links to me on Facebook and twitter.

Katharine, do you have anything you would like to add today?

A big thank you to your readers for visiting with me today!

And I’d love to ask everybody a question. I’ll send a signed copy of my award-winning CAPTURED BY A ROGUE LORD to one randomly chosen commenter who answers!

 Here’s the question:

 

In HOW TO BE A PROPER LADY, Viola suffers through many lessons on how to comport herself in high society, with varying degrees of success. What’s one of the rules you learned about how to behave properly, and do you still follow that rule?

What a pleasure to have you visit with us and our readers today!! Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule and your life to spend time with us and our readers today!!

Publication Date: June 26, 2012 | Series: Falcon Club

The Rules of Being a Proper Lady 1) Never take steps greater than six inches apart. 2) Never look boldly at a gentleman. 3) And never, ever, kiss a man who is not your fiancÉ.

But beautiful, bold Viola Carlyle doesn’t care about the rules. And she desperately wants to kiss the notoriously tempting Captain Jin Seton, the man who brought her kicking and fighting back to English society. Kidnapped as a child, now she longs to return to that life of freedom where she was able to live—and love—as she wished.

Having hunted Viola for two years, Jin Seton has finally found his good luck—for, by finding Viola, his oldest, deepest debt will at last be paid. And although he has vowed not to let her win his heart, this very improper lady might finally be the one who tames him.
