Highland Obsession by Dawn Halliday
Thanks so much for having me at Yankee Romance Reviewers! I’m so thrilled about my newest release, a very (very!) spicy Scottish Historical, HIGHLAND OBSESSION.
HIGHLAND OBSESSION excerpt:
In the Scottish Highlands, two warriors are about to clash over a woman of passion…
They were the unlikeliest of friends debauching their way through London: The Earl of Camdonn, a nobleman of vast wealth and power, and Scottish laird Alan MacDonald, a respected Jacobite with ambitions of his own.
But their friendship is destroyed when Alan marries the beautiful Sorcha Stewart—only to witness Cam kidnap her from their bedroom.
Alan will do anything to get his wife back. Cam fights to redeem his honor, even as he refuses to give up his desire. Torn between love and duty, Sorcha must watch as the two men she desires go to war over her. And when the battle lines are drawn, all three lovers are lured into a triangle of forbidden passions…
Here’s what Monica McCarty (one of my favorite Scottish romance writers) said about HIGHLAND OBSESSION:
“Watch out for your fingers . . . HIGHLAND OBSESSION is on fire—a scorching page turner from cover to cover! Sexy Highlanders and wickedly erotic romance, Dawn Halliday is the HOTTEST new voice in Scottish romance.”
~Monica McCarty - Author of HIGHLAND SCOUNDREL
Anyway, I loved writing this book! I didn’t know how much I’d enjoy writing stories centered in the Highlands until I began. I jotted down some of the reasons I had so much fun with HIGHLAND OBSESSION (and its sequel, HIGHLAND SURRENDER, coming in early 2010).
Dawn’s Top 10 Reasons to write about (and read about) Highlanders:
(10) They want something, they go after it. Everything else be damned.
(9) The place they live (sooo beautiful)
(8) They have a keen sense of honor.
(7) They wear plaids. (What can I say?! They’re sexy!)
(6) The accent!
(5) They possess a single-minded devotion to those they love (their woman, their family, and their clan)
(4) They have very large…broadswords.
(3) They’re physically powerful.
(2) They’ll do anything to protect what’s important to them.
(1) They’re very, very good with their hands.
What are some of your favorite things about Highlanders?
