A HIGHLANDER'S TEMPTATION BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED!
A HIGHLANDER'S TEMPTATION

BY SUE-ELLEN WELFONDER


ABOUT THE BOOK:

Darroc MacConacher spends sleepless nights dreaming of a raven-haired beauty who makes him ache with desire. Then his dream comes true: the lady with her lush curves and fair skin appears shipwrecked on his shores. Darroc is immediately drawn to her strength and beauty, and from the moment she lays eyes on this powerful, broad-shouldered warrior, Lady Arabella MacKenzie knows she'll never want another man. But theirs is a forbidden love. The MacKenzies drove the MacConachers from their lands and destroyed their honor. Now, Darroc can use this sapphire-eyed seductress to shatter his foes. Yet how can he deny the passion that burns between him and Arabella, and ruin the one woman who touches his very soul?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Sue-Ellen Welfonder is a card-carrying Scotophile whose burning wish to make frequent (free) trips to the land of her dreams led her to a twenty year career with the airlines. Bi-lingual, she flew international all those years, working her flights as foreign language speaker. Her flying career allowed her to see the world, but it was always to Scotland that she returned.

Now a full-time writer, she’s quick to admit that she much prefers wielding a pen to pushing tea and coffee. She spent fifteen years living in Europe and used that time to explore as many castle ruins, medieval abbeys, and stone circles as possible. Anything ancient, crumbling, or lichened caught her eye. She makes annual visits to Scotland, insisting they are a necessity as each trip gives her inspiration for new books.

Proud of her own Hebridean ancestry, she belongs to two clan societies: the MacFie Clan Society and the Clan MacAlpine Society. In addition to Scotland, her greatest passions are medieval history, the paranormal, and dogs. She never watches television, loves haggis, and writes at a four-hundred-and-fifty year old desk that once stood in a Bavarian castle.

Sue-Ellen is married and currently resides with her husband and Jack Russell Terrier in Florida. Readers can learn more about her and the world of her books at www.welfonder.com.

Evening, Ladies!

It's pretty late Monday night - or very early Tuesday morning, depending - but I wanted to pop back in here so no one is missed. I'm so glad I did.

Coffeeeee -- I adore your tagline! It reminds me of myself as I am so not a morning person and can't even bare to speak my name until I'm well caffeinated.

I'm so glad that you love all things Scottish and historic. To me, there's nothing better. I hope you'll enjoy the book.

Linna - Thank you for caring about Darroc. He made a wonderful hero. I really loved him - and Arabella - so I hope you'll enjoy meeting them.

Julie - You're a woman of my heart. I so agree. What more could anyone want than history, highlanders, and romance? I hope you'll enjoy the book.

Holdenj - You, too, sound like my kind of person. History and romance. Big sigh. It just doesn't get any better. Well, maybe if the history is wearing plaid.

Renee - I'm always so happy to see readers who love Scotland and Scottish books. I hope you'll enjoy mine.

RubynReba - Thank you so much for your good words. I'm so glad that you love history with your romance. I hope you'll enjoy the book.

Everyone - if you didn't know, you can see setting photos of the special places in Scotland that inspired this book if you go to my website and click on 'see the inspiration' next to the book cover.

Otherwise, thank you so much for looking in here today. I appreciate it.

Bookin' with Bingo - Thank you for again for featuring my new book on your blog. I appreciate it very much.

Goodnight all, and sweet dreams of the Highlands!

Stacie - Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm with you .. ha ha. Lottery win and I'm outta here, too. So fast I'd be there before the dust settles! I hope you get there. I promise it's even more magical than your dreams. Which is the only bad thing about going - it rips you when it's time to leave.

Mariela said...

I would love to add this book to my library... first of all because I was drawn by the idea that he dreamed about her, and suddenly she was there. Not only that but that its a historical romance about highlanders and those two components in a romance book just seem to somehow add a little spice to the tale. :-).
