My Sexy Saturday ~ HER SAVAGE SCOT ~ The Highland Warrior Chronicles

Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday!  Every week published and unpublished authors share 7 words, 7 sentences or 7 paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published book.
Today I'm going to share 7 paragraphs of Her Savage Scot, book 1 of my Highland Warrior Chronicles which released on 20th November :-)

“I’ve wanted to kiss you since the first moment I saw you.”

His ragged whisper scorched her parted lips. She hadn’t been mistaken. “I thought you far from interested that first day. You surely didn’t give any indication of your thoughts.”

He moved closer. The breadth of his shoulders blocked out the rest of the world, his white linen shirt sculpted his impressive chest. And the weave of his plaid branded her through the softness of her gown.

“How could I? You were an aloof Pictish lady and I a mere savage Scot.”

She leaned into him, soaking up the hard ridges of his chest, the fresh scent of his hair, the faint sweetness of mead on his breath. “So what has changed?”

“Nothing.” His fingers tightened around hers and his eyes enslaved her. “Yet everything.”

His words curled through her heart, shimmered in her blood. Nothing. Yet everything. The chance of them having a future together was remote. And yet she had been given this time with him. Moments to savor, to cherish. To remember for the rest of her life.

Release Day for HER SAVAGE SCOT

Hooray! Today is release day for book 1 in my Highland Warrior Chronicles, Her Savage Scot. Don't forget to enter the Rafflecopter contest below for the chance to win fabulous giveaways!

Look at this smexilicious cover :-) I absolutely love that the wonderful Syneca at Ellora's Cave incorporated the mystical standing stones on the cover, as these represent the ancient heritage of the heroine, Aila.

When tough Scot warrior Connor MacKenzie rides into the barbaric lands of the Picts on a mission for his king, he never expects to be captivated by a beautiful Pictish widow. Drawn under her spell, yet unaware of her true identity, he risks everything for one passionate night in her arms.
Aila, princess of Pictland, swore long ago she would do anything within her power to help defeat the Vikings who invaded her land and murdered her husband. But after meeting Connor, her frozen heart thaws and once again she imagines a future filled with love and passion.

When Connor delivers the message from his king, Aila becomes a pawn in a deadly game of politics. Her heart belongs to Connor, but she must marry the prince of Dal Riada – Connor’s half-brother. But the fates have other plans for the star-crossed lovers as they fight their enemies and themselves to find true love.

IN THE BLOOD is Out In the Wild! + Giveaway!

I'm so thrilled that my good friend and CP, Sara Hantz is today celebrating the release of her YA novel, In the Blood. Congratulations, Sara! I love this book and am so happy that it's hit the cyber shelves! And don't forget to enter Sara's fabulous contest below!



For seventeen years Jed Franklin’s life was normal. Then his father was charged with the abuse and murder of four young boys and normal became a nightmare.
His mom’s practically a walking zombie, he’s lost most of his friends, and the press camps out on his lawn. The only things that keep him sane are his little sis; his best friend and dream girl, Summer; and the alcohol he stashes in his room. But after Jed wakes up from a total blackout to discover a local kid has gone missing—a kid he was last seen talking to—he’s forced to face his greatest fear: that he could somehow be responsible.
In a life that’s spiraled out of control, Jed must decide if he chooses his own destiny with Summer by his side or if the violent urges that plagued his father are truly in the blood.

"In the Blood is emotionally draining and energizing at the same time and it will be on my list of best books read in 2013. I will not soon forget Jed Franklin." 5 Stars  Buried under Books
