Welcome! If you landed here, you’re in the right place. I’m part of Romance at Random’s Reader Rally Blog Hop!
Usually authors offer excerpts from their books, but I’m going to be a little different. (My regular visitors will shrug and say, “So what else is new?”) I’m sharing snippets instead, just the beginning of a few chapters. Here goes:
Sins of the Highlander
Chapter One ~ The peat fire had burned out and the ash gone gray, but Rob MacLaren didn’t feel the least bit cold. Not while his hot-blooded woman writhed under him.
Chapter Two ~ Rob advanced steadily, steeling himself to ignore the way her brows drew together in fear. “A man doesna name a horse he might have to eat come winter,” he said, his voice silky with menace. “And he doesna befriend one he’s taken hostage.”
Chapter Three ~ Elspeth Stewart blinked at him, like a small brown squirrel caught in the gaze of an adder.
Chapter Four ~ When Mad Rob decided to leave a place, he didn’t let anything slow him down. In the black cave, Elspeth couldn’t see her own hand when she held it before her face, but the Maclaren seemed to know exactly where he was going.
Chapter Five ~ “Wine!” Lord Drummond bellowed as he entered the solar.
Old Normina shuffled forward with a horn and a wineskin of the best vintage to be found in the laird’s cellars. She’d anticipated he’d demand more than mead this night after chasing all over creation for his lost bride.
Chapter Six ~ Lachlan Drummond and Elspeth’s father reined their horses to a halt at the top of the rise. The sun eased over the southeastern hills but it promised no additional warmth. The day was breaking cold and bitter as a spinster’s bed.
Midway through Chapter Six ~ Elspeth screamed. The last thing she saw before Rob and the wolf disappeared into the brush was his long claymore flying into the air, end over end.
