One of the things I notice when I talk with readers who love Highlanders is that they often don’t know the classics. So I’m going to do a giveaway once a week to entice readers to try some of the older novels. There are so many! I have many favorites that are keepers, and I hope to introduce some new ones to you.
Every Saturday I’ll post the name of a book on my Facebook page along with a question, and to enter, you just have to post your answer. On Sunday, I’ll randomly select a winner.
The first week’s book is actually two-The Pride of Lions and The Blood of Roses by Marsha Canham.
I love Alex and Catherine so much that I named my first hero Alex (as you know).
Here’s the story from Amazon:
Forced into an unwanted marriage by a reckless game of chance, how was the spoiled and pampered Catherine Augustine Ashbrooke to know the handsome stranger with the brooding midnight eyes would make her the pawn in a dangerous game of his own?
Alexander Cameron may have won the highborn English beauty in a duel, but not even the lure of long-forgotten desires could keep him from his meeting with destiny. He had no choice but to carry his reluctant bride off to the Highlands, to a world of ancient blood feuds and a brewing rebellion–a world where fiery passion and breathtaking courage would prove that even legendary warriors could lose their hearts.
This novel does have quite a bit of history in it, but I loved it. This is also the only novel that caused me to throw the book across the room because I was so mad at the author. Oh, but she got me good! See if you can guess which part in the second novel upset me so. This isn’t normally the trope I like because they both start out hating each other, but oh, how their love does grow.
If you’re still interested, then answer this question on my Facebook page.
