Free Publicity Fridays

This week, I’m enamored of Sins of the Highlander by Connie Mason with Mia Marlowe.  I love me a good historical, and this one is a keeper.  Ms. Mason and Ms. Marlowe write some excellent Scot “dialect” and employ an intelligent and sometimes humorous voice for their heroine, Elspeth, and a cavalier yet haunted voice for their hero, Mad Rob.  Just a few of my favorite lines:

   “Hi-up!” Mad Rob bellowed at the stallion, and it leapt into a burst of speed as if being chased by a thousand demons but feared the man on its back even more. -p. 9

   She shot him a glare that should have burned off his eyebrows, but since he didn’t deign to look at her, he suffered no ill effects. -p. 39

   “A cow is the most biddable creature on God’s earth. It’ll go wherever it’s driven. A woman doesna drive worth a damn.” -p. 127

   “What I have now isna life, Elspeth,” Rob finally said. “‘Tis but breathing.” -p. 138

I hope this whets your appetite for Elspeth and Rob’s story.  Sins of the Highlander is a great read.  It’s gotten some excellent reviews.  The one that sold me on buying the book was by You Gotta Read Reviews:

 You should definitely pick up Sins of the Highlander if you haven’t yet.

Be sure to come back next Friday to see who’s rocking my world in the fiction department.

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
