Carolyn’s December Extravaganza! Win Stuff. And Stuff.

It’s the holidays and I’m in a giving mood.

So, here’s what I’m giving out today.

Three (3) copies of Veronica Wolff’s Lord of the Highlands. Signed. Did I mention they’re signed by the author herself?

What’s the book about you ask? Well, I decided to interview the book to find out.

Yours Truly: Hi and welcome to my blog. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to find out what you’re about. Can you describe yourself?

Lord of the Highlands: Thanks so much for having the three of us here. //riffling of pages//

YT: Pick a representative to speak, OK, it’s hard to understand you when you all talk at once.

LotH: Only time and a woman’s love can liberate him.

YT: Oh, that sounds good. Say, what do you look like?

LotH: Cover of Lord of The Highlands by Veronica Wolff

YT: Wow. You’re kind of hot. Is that sword heavy?

LotH #1: Yes. Did you know Veronica Wolff’s Scotsmen are pure temptation — USA Today bestselling author Sandra Hill. ?

LotH #2: He was her one true love. He just lived in another century.

YT: Just like Alexander Skarsgard is my One True Love. Only he doesn’t live in another century. He lives in Los Angeles, which is worse.

LotH #3: An online dating service may have pronounced Felicity "unmatchable" but she’s determined– and destined– to find her perfect mate. All it takes is a mystical deck of Tarot cards to put her dreams to the test.??

YT: I think that dating service was wrong about– oh. You mean the heroine of the story? OK. Hmm. So what happened with the Tarot cards?

LotH #1: Light a candle. Choose a card. And old Scotland is only a wish away. . .

YT: OK, just a sec. schwippppp. Is vanilla scented OK?

LotH 1,2 and 3: pages riffling

YT: Well hold on. I don’t like that card. Wait. Right. Got one. The Knight of Pentacles. Ooh, armor. Now what?

LotH #1: Scarred by betrayal, Will Rollo lives to defend the monarchy against traitors. . . and he rides alone.

YT: Hey, just like the Knight of Pentalces!

LotH #1: The last thing he needs to contend with is a love-struck woman. So when Felicity appears, spirited by magic, Rollo’s determined to crush all tender feelings for her. But as passion binds them in a dark era, where witchcraft is punishable by death, Rollo must make a daring choice: send Felicity back to her own time, or endanger both their lives.

YT: I have a really great idea. I’m going over to and getting a number between 1 and 324. When I get back, you guys tell me the first sentence of that page.

LotH 1-3: silence

YT: 190.

LotH #2: Chapter 23.

YT: OK. Two sentences.

LotH #3: The feel of the minister’s hand repulsed her.

YT: Ooh. A bad guy! Let’s do that again!

LotH #3: Very loud page riffling

LotH #2: A man alone is no man.

LotH #1: Thank you for having us in your lovely home even though the inside of your bag is very dark. And your desk is very dusty. We are looking for new homes now. Can you help us?

YT: Yes, I can.

Dear blog readers, please leave a comment about what you like about Scotland or would probably like if you were there. Or make something up. Three of you will win a signed copy of this book. Leave me a way to contact you or check back soon to see if you won.

ETA: This post is now closed to comments since a winner has been declared!

    Great interview — it's interesting to get the book's perspective on itself.

    I could compose a long photo essay of "what I like about Scotland," since that's where my partner's family all live. Maybe I will, but on my own blog rather than hijacking yours.

    I don't actually read many romances featuring men in kilts, because I'm so picky about historical and geographical accuracy and a lot of books set in the Highlands, um, aren't picky. I make an exception for the OUTLANDER books, because Gabaldon is such a researcher. But this one might be worth a look….

    Susan in AZ here,
    I would like to eat a fresh-from-the-oven scone, in Scotland, during a misty cold morning, in front of a warm fire with nowhere to go and all day to get there, leaving me time to read a wonderful book…

    Scotland is an absolutely beautiful country but scenery be damned…I want a kilt wearin', sword swingin' highlander!!!

    Hi Carolyn 🙂
    That was a fun interview!
    I was smiling throughout.
    All the best,

    The Scottish brogue. *____* I have a thing for accents, and Scottish ones are particularly fascinating. Oh, and those braw lads, too. 😀

  6. Emily Ryan-Davis says:

    Great interview! 🙂 My favorite thing about Scotland is it produced Scottish tribal drumming band Albannach, which makes me swoon.

  7. Paula says:

    I can't say I always understand what they're saying, but I like their language. And whisky. lol

  8. Marissa says:

    I love their castles, the miles of nothing but nature, and their whiskey of course!

  9. Lesley says:

    Love the beautiful countryside, castles and all that history!

    Great interview btw 🙂

    I think the Scottish accent is the most romantic of all and would love to visit Scotland to hear it first hand. Not to mention the men in kilts and the whisky…hehehe.
