As a reader of romance, give me a story with well-written characters and a plot that holds my interest and I’m happy. Make the hero a heart-wounded, emotionally bruised, sometimes gruff man who is frustrated to the limits of his patience with a woman he just can’t resist and I’ll eagerly devour the book.
Make the heroine have wounds of her own, determination to face life, and worthy of this suffering, preferably Alpha man, and the irresistible need to love him, and I’ll read the book over and over.
As a writer of romance, I try hard to give my readers exactly the kind of heroes and heroines I enjoy. I like writing in various sub-genres and different time periods. There are so many ways to play around and tell stories as a writer. Cowboys are my real weakness, whether they are contemporary ones or historical ones. And I love Scots, too, and touching gay stories. Okay, I love ALL of my heroes.
I have to admit that one of my favorite heroes was Brodie Durward in The Great Scottish Devil, from Blushing Books. He had it all for me: a Scottish hunk, emotionally wounded, loyal to his clan, and frustrated almost beyond endurance with the heroine, Annabel Henderson. *Note: This is a companion novel to Maggie Mine, but it can also stand alone.
I enjoy getting reviews, but my favorites come from actual everyday readers. Here are just a few comments on this book.
“What a wonderful story of love and life’s realities. This historical tale allows you to really believe you are there with the characters, rooting them on and wanting to protect them from the evil. A lovely and enjoyable story.” 5 Stars from Christina
“If you liked Maggie Mine you will love this book which is its sequel. The hero is a strong Scotsman who doesn’t take any guff from anyone especially a young woman with no sense. Great plot with a bit of mystery thrown in and of course spanking.” 5 Stars from Alicia
“I loved this story! There is a lot of detail and a well-developed story line. Love the characters and was so happy Brodie found some happiness. Read it twice and then had to read Maggie Mine again! Great book!!” 5 Stars from SH
“THE best story I have read in a while…not just from bb.com but store bought books also. Just Loved it…this one is fun, made me laugh out loud a few times…if you like romance, spanking, and a little mystery this is just the book, I will have to read this over and over its a good read.” 5 Stars from Atene
Annabel Henderson’s life has fallen apart yet again, worse this time than before. She lost her beloved younger brother, then her mother a year ago, and now her father. His dying words talk of his regrets; warn her of someone or something that he was unable to fully explain. Confused, grieving, she is left alone in the Scottish Highlands to deal with her father’s body and wondering how she can continue on with her family’s tinker trade traveling from village to village. She must do it, for it is the only life she knows. In her heart, though, she yearns for a man to love her and to help her with the trade. Instead her first encounter is with the famed Great Scottish Devil returning to his home of Urquhart. The Devil is more annoying and demanding than he is handsome. How dare he think to take charge of her life!
Brodie Durward isn’t sure he can deal with another problem in his life. He’d barely survived being taken prisoner and seriously wounded in the final battle of the Crusades, left with the loss of his memories. Still struggling with that, he had to go to England and save his sister Maggie from being hung. All he wants now is to return to his family’s holding of the Castle Urquhart. He hopes the once familiar surroundings and being around his clan will help him completely heal and regain his memories. Then he and his men run across a young lad apparently trying to steal the valuables off a dead man. Such a travesty can’t be tolerated!
But the “lad” isn’t a boy at all. The supposed bandit is a tiny sprite of a woman, far too pleasing to the eye for his comfort, and furious at having been called a thief. And then she tries to refuse to travel with him under his protection, claiming she doesn’t need it, doesn’t wish to go in that direction. He has no patience for her foolishness. She will go with him!
