Guest: Jennifer Haymore + Giveaway!
I'm thrilled to be interviewing some of the other authors from our new anthology, Captured by a Celtic Warrior. Everyone, please welcome Jennifer Haymore!

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Haymore is the author of sexy historical and contemporary romance. Her books have been nominated for numerous awards, including five RT Book Reviews Reviewers Choice awards and the prestigious RITA® award for best historical romance.

You can find Jennifer in Southern California trying to talk her husband into yet another trip to England, helping her three children with homework while brainstorming a new five-minute dinner menu, or crouched in a corner of the local bookstore writing her next novel.

I've read Jennifer's story in this anthology and absolutely loved it! It's titled Her Wicked Highlander and this is what it's about:

1816 - Maxwell White is the newest member of the Highland Knights, an elite mercenary group sworn to protect the Crown. His first assignment is to keep independent and spirited Aila MacKerrick safe from a madman determined to get his hands on a treasure she unwittingly possesses. But Aila isn’t going to simply allow some Highlander—as handsome as he might be—to capture her and whisk her away to an abandoned castle. She’ll fight to the death for her freedom...as soon as she rids herself of this pesky, insistent desire that makes her far more inclined to run into his arms than away from them....

Q: Welcome, Jennifer and thank you for visiting with us! What is the story behind your story?

A: Kris Kennedy came to me over a year ago and asked me to be a part of a box set she was organizing. The box set had two themes: (1) Celtic hero (easy since I’m in the middle of writing the Highland Knights series!), and (2) A capture story (a little bit more tricky, but capture stories? Yum!). My mind started churning immediately, and over the next few months, the story of Aila MacKerrick and Max White formed in my mind.

Q: I agree. The capture part of the story was fun but tricky. :) Why do you write romance?

A: I write romance because I love a happy ending that makes me feel good. I also like a bit of heat and sexual tension in the books I read. So it seems natural that the books I write should be romances as well. :)

Q: I love your Highland setting, naturally. :) Why did you choose this setting and why was it perfect for your book?

A: Strangely enough, my Highland Knights books have mostly been based in London (with frequent travels north). I have been craving writing a book that takes place entirely in the Highlands and I was finally able to with Her Wicked Highlander. Yay! And there is a dilapidated but beautiful castle thrown in for good measure.

Q: Please tell us about your favorite character in the book.

A:  I love Aila, the heroine. She is the most feisty heroine I’ve ever written. She has a sharp tongue and a strong wit, and she so strong. She isn’t afraid of anything! But I love Max, the hero, equally. He’s one of those quiet, strong warrior-types, and Aila makes him scratch his head in confusion more than once. He’s not used to dealing with women like her, lol.

Q: I love them both too! Please tell us about your other books.

A: I have over 20 books published in four series. The James Series, The Donovan Sisters, The House of Trent, and now the Highland Knights. They’re all steamy historical romances with lots of heat and heart. You can read more about them all at www.jenniferhaymore.com.

Q: If you are self-published, why did you choose that route? Do you love it or what would you do differently?

A: I am both self-published and traditionally published—I am a “hybrid” author—and both routes have their pros and cons. Traditional publishing gives a bit more structure and built-in support while self-publishing offers a ton of freedom. So depending on my mood on any given day, I’m a fan of both.

Q: Do you have any advice for unpublished authors?

A: Read! Read tons of romance in the subgenre that you love, and read outside the genre as well. I really think reading books is the #1 way to learn how to write them.

Q: What’s next for you?

A: After Captured by a Celtic Warrior, I have another book in my Highland Knights series coming out—Highland Awakening.  It releases on March 29, and you can read more about it at http://www.jenniferhaymore.com/bookshelf/highland-awakening/.

Q: Would you like to ask readers a question?

A: Romance heroes. We love them. Warriors, pirates, rakes, gentlemen, bad boys, dark and damaged, alpha...and so many more. What is your favorite kind of hero and why?

One commenter will win an ebook copy of Highland Heat, book 1 of the Highland Knights!

Captured by a Celtic Warrior is available at:

Royal Masquerade
I'm so excited to announce my newest release! Royal Masquerade is a novella set in the fictional European world of Monterra, a Kindle World.

Blurb:

Alessandra Ranieri is forced to adopt a name that isn't really hers, when she returns to Monterra to claim an inheritance...that isn't really hers. She's certain that her Romany grandmother left her the property nestled in the foothills of the Monterran Alps.
Raul Forli, heir to the dukedom of Forli, is determined to unmask Alessandra's masquerade. He knows she's lying. More importantly, he needs the same property she's claiming and he's sure that his need is more desperate than hers. Because the duke is not all he seems, either. And he's got nothing to lose.
This battle will be fiercely waged.
Not in a court of law.
But in the hearts of Alessandra and her fairy-tale duke.

Excerpt:

A shadow darkened the air above Alessandra. Raul. He must have seen her fall and skied over. He was stepping out of his skis, flinging away his poles, and in general looking and behaving like a crazy man. Her giggles intensified. What was he planning to do?

He yanked off his helmet and knelt down on one knee beside her. “Alessandra—”

At the moment he spoke her name, he seemed to notice she was alive and well. He frowned down at her. “What in hell is so funny?”

“I fell.” She laughed up at him. “Serves me right.”

“Probably,” he growled. He was still kneeling over her, his brow furrowed. “What the hell happened? You should have been able to handle that. You had a great lift off.”

“I was watching you!” She laughed again at the surprise on his face. “Lost my concentration—”

Slowly, as if it took a moment for her admission to sink in, he smiled. “I guess I can’t complain about that.”

“You’d better not, you ungrateful wretch.” Without thinking, she lifted a handful of powdery snow and flung it at him. He ducked just in time, but a few white flakes landed in his dark hair, sparkling.

“Why you—” He leaned over her, picked up his own fistful of snow and held it over her. “You don’t want to challenge a champion snowball thrower.”

“Champion? Is there an Olympics for that sport in Monterra?”

“I don’t know about that,” he admitted.  He shook a few snowflakes down onto her red jacket, threatening her. “But that was my title in third grade.”

“Oooh, I’m scared—” She laughed up at him again, loving the moment of lying here in the snow with this handsome man looking down at her, the sun shining around him, and his broad shoulders filling her world. It was a once in a lifetime moment. She felt her laughter die as he stared, his expression changing—from mock threatening laughter —to lust. The heat in his eyes scorched her, wiping out the laughter.

He was going to kiss her. He held her gaze, his eyes gleaming, as he leaned down, shaking off one glove, and then the other. The handful of snow fell to the ground, forgotten.

“Alessandra,” he murmured in a low, intimate voice. He placed one hand on her cheek, his fingers cold on the outside, but warm within. “You look like a Christmas present.”

“Not something glittery and fake, I hope?” She couldn’t shake the knowledge that he thought she was living under a false name in Monterra, masquerading as someone she was not.

“No.” He shook his head slightly, a half-smile on his lips. “Something sparkly and fun. Something unexpected.” His voice went even lower. “Something I want to unwrap.”


 Available only on Amazon (since it's in Kindle World) here.

Here's a picture of the type of house found in Monterra.



My Song is an Oldie???
When does a song become an oldie?

Wickipedia says "Oldies is a radio format that concentrates on music from a period of about 25 to 55 years before the present day.
In the 1980s and 1990s, "oldies" meant the 15 years from the birth of rock n roll to the beginning of the singer-songwriter era of the early 1970s, or about 1955 to 1972, although this varied and some stations chose 1950–1969.[citation needed] After 2000, 1970s music was increasingly included,[1] and early 1980s music is beginning to also be called "oldies", though the term "classic hits" is used to distinguish the "new" oldies (theGeneration X oldies) from the "old" oldies (the Baby Boomer oldies).[2]"
Personally, in my mind, "oldies" are songs from the generation before my own LOL. But the older I get, the more the songs I remember are not considered modern music, or whatever the new music is called. Don't get me wrong, I love much of the new music out there. But there's something about the music that you loved during the time you were becoming an adult. It lives in you for the rest of your life.
Hubby and I met in the 1975. Our song - the song we loved to sing together while we were dating - was Captain and Tennille's Love Will Keep Us Together. See, I was a romantic even then. (And if you watched that video - click on the song title - and didn't live in the 70s, yes that was how we dressed and wore our hair and it was very cool!)
And speaking of oldies, I'm kicking around the idea of using song titles for the book titles of my Silver Fox romances. It's been fun listening to more of the songs I grew up with as I searched for the perfect titles for each story.
What songs did you grow up with - the ones you loved, and still love. Are they considered oldies now?

Birds on the Brain!
Okay, first, I want to assure you that I did get word count, and made up for a 1,000 for another day. I moved furniture in the morning, unpacked 4 boxes, and even walked around the block to get my mail. I answered numerous spam calls, and really, I have been working. But….then the BIRDS came.
And that meant hurrying to open the blinds and hope not to scare them away, grab my camera and take some shots.

Two sparrows and a cardinal that I missed, swooped in to see the seed, but no takers. A sparrow was eyeing it from the fence, but he wouldn’t buy it. I have seen a bunch of these birds land on my grass and peck around the day before. Maybe they’ll get braver.

Okay, so remember about the work I have to do on the manuscript? I need to write 6,000 words to catch up. I had 7,000 yesterday, so whittling away at it. 65,000 to go!

Have a great Saturday!!! I know what I’m going to be doing. Do you?

My story in this anthology is Love Charm for Gillian. 

 This story is only available in the anthology. But you can't beat the price because you get 6 stories!

Excerpt: 


“Here’s the jumping spot,” Cameron said. He shucked his navy t-shirt over his head without warning, and dropped it on the rocks. Gillian sucked in a breath that would have been audible if not for the noise of the waves battering the cliff in their endless quest for passage. His gray board shorts hung low on his hips, hugging his waist just below his carved abs. She could have spent the rest of the day staring at the nice fit.

But other delights needed to be checked out. His tight abs, that fanned up to a muscular chest and broad shoulders with chiseled biceps. His warm tan. The black hair that outlined his pecs, virtually disappeared on his stomach, and reappeared, with a little more presence, to arrow down into his shorts.

She wouldn’t be surprised if her mouth were hanging open, particularly when Cameron grinned at her as if he knew exactly what was going through her mind. He placed his wallet and phone on top of his t-shirt.

“Do I dare to ask if you’ll follow suit?” he asked, letting his gaze rest for a moment on her tank top.

She waved back the way they’d come. “With all those people watching?” Clumps of colorfully clad vacationers dotted the gray and tan rocks wherever there was a spot wide enough to sit down.

“You could be an exhibitionist for all I know,” he answered, grinning. “If it were my lucky day.”

“Not your lucky day, then.” She dropped her bag, kicked off her flip-flops, and jumped into the sea.

She heard Cameron’s gasp over her head, and then his laughter rang out, coming closer as he jumped in after her.

The cool blue water closed over her head, sparkling around her. She let it refresh her for a moment, before she kicked up, breaking through the surface of the foaming white water. Cameron was already bobbing at the surface, looking in her direction with a bit of anxiety in his eyes.

“That was a gutsy move, Red,” he said.

“Not really.” She tossed back her hair and smiled with sheer joy. “You didn’t strike me as the type of man who’d be out here cliff-diving if it wasn’t safe to do.”

He returned her smile with an infectious one of his own. “You don’t want to rely on me to be cautious.”

She laughed. “Me neither.”

“I got that, Red.” He shoved his black hair back on his head. “Now do you want to swim around out here, or jump again?”

“Is there a way out?”

He threw back his head and laughed, his teeth white against the tanned column of his throat. “Some people,” he said, “would have established an exit strategy before jumping in.”

She shrugged, her shoulders barely clearing the water. But his gaze fixed on them.

“I want to jump in again,” she said.

He pointed behind her. “Swim over there, and you’ll see a way to climb out onto the rocks.”

Fortunately, she was an excellent swimmer. The current kept trying to push her onto the face of the cliff, but she was able to reach the small opening and clamber up. It wasn’t until she regained her footing and turned back to check on Cameron, that she realized she had a problem. Her cream tank top clung to her body like a second skin, and the reason she noticed it was that Cameron’s eyes were glued to her breasts as he pulled himself out of the water. Of course, that was somewhat fair as her gaze was locked onto the play of muscles in his broad shoulders as he hoisted himself onto the horizontal rock.

Still, it was somehow more socially acceptable for her to enjoy his muscles than it was for him to enjoy her near nudity. She crossed her arms over her chest.

Cameron shook his head. “A shame to hide such a gorgeous view.”

She almost giggled. “You’re staring.”

“I don’t want to objectify you,” he said with a wink. “But I’m a man and you’re hot. So I’m stuck.”

 This is a picture of the rocks from which they went cliff-diving (in Dubrovnik, Croatia.)

 Yes, one of my kids thought it would be fun to do.
