Heart of a Highlander

Coming May 2015

When Giselle McTavish left France as the wife of a Scottish laird, she never expected to be widowed two years later and left with a toddler to raise. Filled with animosity toward Highlander, Hugh Ferguson—the man she holds responsible for her husband’s drowning, and a man she must see every day because he, too, lives at Craiglocky Keep—she’s determined her son, the next laird, will be raised in Scotland, nonetheless. Her struggles to overcome loneliness and homesickness are compounded as it becomes more difficult to fight the warm feelings Hugh now stirs in her.

Hugh has loved Giselle almost from the moment he laid eyes on the petite Frenchwoman. But as the wife, and then the widow of his dearest friend, he has refused to act on his feelings. He blames himself for his friend’s death. Guilt as well as the belief Giselle hates him, keeps Hugh’s lips firmly closed and his heart sealed. That all changes one providential Valentine’s Day when he risks everything by using Scottish folklore and legend to at last proclaims his love.

Book Description(Amazon)

November 17, 2014
SEVEN BRAND NEW SCOTTISH ROMANCE NOVELLAS FROM THE GUARDIANS OF CRIDHE.

The authors are donating a portion of the royalties from the sale of all e-books to the Cancer Research Institute, the world’s oldest and largest nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to advancing the science of cancer immunology with the goal of developing new ways to harness the immune system to prevent, treat, and—one day—cure cancer.

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…

Highland Revenge by Ceci Giltenan
Does he hate her clan enough to visit his vengeance upon her? Or will he listen to her secret and his own heart’s yearning?

The Taming of Mairi MacKenzie by Sue-Ellen Welfonder
A forbidden love so powerful it could destroy them both.

Stealing Moirra’s Heart by Suzan Tisdale
She didn’t believe he was a thief when she rescued him… until he stole her heart.

Spirit Stones by Kate Robbins
Sheona MacLeod has a gift. Malcom MacDonald seeks change. Together, they can change destiny…if they dare.

A Tear For Memory by Kathryn Lynn-Davis
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?

A Jewel in the Vaults by Lily Baldwin
She has never met a man like him before. Then again, he has never met a lad like her.

Lord Grayson’s Bride by Tarah Scott
She can’t allow his love for her to destroy him…

HOW TO GET YOUR CREATIVE JUICES FLOWING~

Crimson Heart Banner

Welcome, Heather!

How to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

Thanks so much for having me here today on My Book Addiction and More!

<What an honor to have you with us and our readers today>

Crimson-Heart-500

I’m thrilled to announce the release of CRIMSON HEART, my third full-length novel in the Highland Hearts series. The entire series takes place in 16th century Tudor Britain, from Highland castles to Henry VIII’s court and then on to the Scottish court in Edinburgh. There are sexy Highland warriors, raucous yet honorable pirates, fascinating royals, and magical healers – oh my!

So how does a mom of three, living in an east-coast-US suburb create page after page of authentic 16th century characters, dialogue, and plot turns? What gets my creative juices flowing when the 21st century completely envelops me? Years of training : ) Here are a few tricks I’ve learned.
1. Sight – I’m a very visual writer. I like to see my characters (basic features & strong emotions) and settings (authentic historical details). So I create collages for my books. I take a day toward the beginning of each new project to cut out pictures of landscapes, people and objects that mean something to my story. I paste them on an open manila folder, poster board or even in a blank book to give me something to glance at while writing.

I also surround my desk with objects that are meaningful to the book. I have a wolf calendar to remind me of Cheò, my hero’s wolf. I have a Scottish long sword mounted over the door to my office and lots of dragonflies (there’s always a dragonfly somewhere in each book).

Collage for Crimson Heart (2)2. Sound – I create a sound track for my stories and wear ear buds on days when my kids are home or when I must write while sitting through hockey or soccer practice.

3. Taste – My muse likes chai lattes with extra cinnamon (hot, not iced). A cup of tea literally get my creative juices flowing. I find it very hard to start writing without the taste on my tongue. Yes, I am like Pavlov’s slobbering dog : )

4. Smell – If I’m struggling with a scene, I’ll light a candle to block the 21st century odors around me. My muse must ignore guinea pig smells (Mr. Squiggles shares my writing room), stink from hockey pads that my son forgets to hang outside, dinner cooking, my daughter’s One Direction perfume, etc. Plus a flickering flame reminds me of magic.

5. Touch – When I’m writing a love scene, I get naked and roll around on the faux fur cover on my bed. ; ) LOL! Now wouldn’t the kids be horrified! No, I don’t do that, well not yet, but maybe I should try that when the kids start school again. My fabulous Highland husband happens to work at home too (wink, wink, say no more).Heather & her Highland Husband (2)

I have been known to sit on my faux fur blanket while writing at my desk (fully clothed). I also have a replica Scottish dirk to hold for inspiration.

The rest of my creativity comes from within. I daydream a lot, and most of the scenarios filling my head are much more interesting than real life around me. So it’s fairly easy for me to block out the 21st century for a while. In fact, when I’m sick or stressed, I like to write because it pulls me away from my pains into a world of adventure, romance and beauty. My tension leaves me and I revel with my characters. I’m never bored and my work usually makes me sigh with contentment. I love being a writer!

Thanks so much for having me here today!

Thank you, Heather, for stopping by today and for your fascinating creative juices!!

Crimson-Heart-500Book Title: CRIMSON HEART

Author: Heather McCollum

Book Synopsis: Elena has spent her entire life hiding her family name while walking the thin line between lady and servant in a Protestant household. She has kept the secret of her lineage for years, but with a new, fiercely Catholic queen on the throne, Elena’s Protestant caretaker is being targeted. And when Bloody Mary discovers Elena’s true identity, she must flee to Scotland to save her life.

Highland warrior, Searc Munro, has secrets of his own. In a family of healers, his dark, killing magic must never be known. When his father’s life is threatened, Searc unleashes his lethal power to save him. With his clan’s suspicious glances and whispers plaguing him, he sets off alone, only to find another use for his magic in saving a beautiful lass being attacked in the forest.

Teaming up as exiles, Elena and Searc head toward Edinburg to find refuge. Yet, with a series of ritual killings haunting the city and a traitor attempting to assassinate Scotland’s regent, suspicion turns to Searc. As word of another British heir reaches the country, the two must learn to trust each other before it’s too late.

VICTORIA ROBERTS~ INTERVIEW AND GIVEAWAY: TO WED A WICKED HIGHLANDER…..

IT IS OUR PLEASURE TO WELCOME TODAY….

{SCOTTISH HISTORICAL ROMANCE AUTHOR}

VICTORIA ROBERTS

Sourcebooks

~TO WED A WICKED HIGHLANDER~

towedwickedhighlander-FINAL

WELCOME VICTORIA!!

MBA&M: First, Victoria, for those who may not know you, please tell our readers a little
about Victoria Roberts?

VICTORIA: Thank you so much for having me today at My Book Addiction and More.

Contrary to what you might think, Victoria Roberts is my real name. I think the name sounded like a romance novelist so I had no desire to change it and write under a pen name. For those of you who don’t know me, I write Scottish historical romances about kilted heroes and warriors from the past. Home is in western PA, but my heart is in the Highlands.


MBA&M: Now, to the nitty gritty, what is your inspiration behind writing your 
“Bad Boys of the Highlands” series?

VICTORIA: I pretty much took my stories back to the drawing board so to speak, wanting to display a true love story between my heroes and heroines. I’m not really a fan of insta-love. Readers will see the Highland men are strong, stubborn and proud while their women are equally determined. I focus on the struggles that each of them have in order to grow them as individuals, and then eventually build them as a couple. I think their personal troubles make the relationship that much more believable and that was an important concept for me to keep throughout the series.


towedwickedhighlander-FINAL
MBA&M: What scene in “To Wed A Wicked Highlander” was your favorite to write and why?

VICTORIA: Without giving away spoilers, one of my favorite scenes was at the end. Poor Sybella. I do love to torture my characters. That’s pretty much all I can say on that.

 
MBA&M: In “To Wed A Wicked Highlander” the heroine must spy on the hero, how hard was it to write a story where the heroine is the worst of the two or is she?

VICTORIA: Sybella had a lot more internal conflict than Alexander. Alex wanted to make their marriage work whereas Ella had this secret hanging over her head the entire time. How could anyone possibly choose between their family and their husband? What a nightmare for anyone. 


MBA&M: Is Alexander MacDonell related to the 
MacGregor clan in your previous stories or I realize Sybella is part of the MacKenzie clan. Without giving anything away of course?

VICTORIA: Yes. Alexander MacDonell was Lady Rosalia’s cousin from Temptation in a Kilt.


MBA&M: How many books will be in “Bad Boys of the Highlands”?

VICTORIA: I’m contracted for three, but fans have been screaming for James and Colin’s story. I’m not ruling anything out.


MBA&M: What is your next project?

VICTORIA: I’m currently working on a new series for Sourcebooks called Royal Rebellion. The first in the series, My Highland Spy, will be released fall 2014.

MBA&M: How long does it take you to write a full length story, and will you be writing any novella’s?

VICTORIA: I usually take 8-10 months to write a full length story. If I try to push it any faster, my work suffers. Plus, I still work a full-time day job, have two kids in sports, etc. As far as novellas, I’m seriously thinking about it. Although, I’m not sure my readers would want novellas. I’ve already been threatened by a book club not to make James’ story into a novella because I’d be cheating them. They all wanted a full length novel to enjoy. lol

MBA&M: Last, but by no means least, please tell our readers where to find you and where to purchase
“To Wed a Highlander”?

towedwickedhighlander-FINALTo Wed a Wicked Highlander Blurb:

She always wanted to be one of the boys…

Sybella would do anything to prove she’s just as valuable to the MacKenzie clan as her brother is. She’d go on any hunt, take any dare. But her father has a different sort of mission in mind: marriage. It’s simple, he explains. All she has to do is marry Alexander MacDonell and report back on his family’s secrets. It will be easy, he says, as long as she doesn’t do anything foolish…like fall in love.

Until she got a man

As laird of the MacDonells, Alex has a duty to produce an heir. It’s a duty he won’t mind with the lovely Ella as his wife―even if she is one of the dreaded MacKenzies. He’s wooed and won many ladies, but Ella is a challenge like no other. He can tell she’s holding something back. But not for long. Because inch by inch, he plans to expose everything she’s been hiding and claim the ultimate prize: her heart.

Praise for To Wed a Wicked Highlander:

Reviewer Top Pick

“Victoria Roberts knocked it outta the ballpark with this one!!! It is Highland romance at its best, loaded with likable characters, and an engaging plot with lots of angst and heartache that put a few tears in this reader’s eye. It was so good that I couldn’t put it down.”

―Night Owl Reviews

Reviewer Top Pick

“Roberts has created the baddest boy of the Highlands for her third in her series. This action-packed romance has everything Roberts’ fans adore: a strong heroine who meets her match in a to-die-for hero, deception, betrayal, love and redemption. To Wed a Wicked Highlander has all the elements that make readers sigh with pleasure.” 

―RT Book Reviews

The Shields #2

March 22, 2012 Rerelease

Greetings Dear Reader,

I was born an immortal prince on the realm of Thales. I lived the life of grandeur, revered and respected, but my one true love was fighting. I was given a special gift in my battle abilities and soon became known as Thales’ finest warrior. But all that changed the day my brother died and an evil descended upon my realm. With Thales on the verge of ruin, I bound myself to The Shields to protect the realms from the evil that ravages them. But I have a dark secret that I must atone for. Then and only then can I return to Thales and face my family. My special battle skills and my immortality help to keep my goals in front of me. They have always been clear…

Until Elle.

Elle makes me long for things I cannot have. Her innate goodness makes me want to grasp what she offers with both hands, but I know that we can never have what she seeks. Elle bears a mark that signals her one of a chosen few who were sent to Earth as infants. She and the others who bear the mark must be found and kept hidden from the ancient evil that seeks them, for they hold the key to the evil’s ruination.

The only way to keep Elle safe is to keep her by my side, but can I resist the temptation to take her love?
