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

Friday, December 4th, 2009

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.
