A White Halloween

I know, how odd that it looks like a white Christmas here when it is actually Halloween, right? I had to share some of the pics I took yesterday when we rode our ATV in the beautiful snow we had here in NC up the side of a mountain and along another road. It was definitely a winter wonderland!






We don't usually have snow this early but this is off Hurricane Sandy. I was so sad to see the devastation in the north east. I hope all of you, your families and homes are okay or that you will bounce back soon. I'm thinking of you.

Best wishes for a happy Halloween!

P.S. My book, My Fierce Highlander is an Epic Award Finalist in historical romance!


P.P.S. My story, My Brave Highlander takes place in a winter wonderland also, in the icy north of Scotland during November.

Battle-hardened warrior Dirk MacLerie isn't who everyone thinks he is. He's Dirk MacKay, heir apparent to the MacKay chiefdom and Dunnakeil Castle on the far north coast of Scotland. When he returns home after a long absence, will his clan know him and will the duplicitous enemy who tried to murder him twelve years ago kill him in truth this time?

Lady Isobel MacKenzie is a beautiful young widow betrothed to yet another Highland chief by her brother's order. But when her future brother-in-law accosts her and threatens to kill her, she is forced to flee into a Highland snowstorm. When she runs into a rugged and imposing man she thought dead, she wonders if he will turn her over to her enemy or take her to safety.

Dirk remembers the enchanting, dark-eyed Isobel from when he was a lad, but now she is bound to another man by legal contract—an important detail she would prefer to forget. She wishes to choose her own husband and has her sights set on Dirk. But he would never steal another man's bride… would he? The tantalizing lady fires up his passions, testing his willpower and honor at every turn, even as some of his own treacherous clansmen plot his downfall.

I can't believe you had so much snow. WOW - it looks a lot like our place with the boughs drooping with the heavy snow.

Congrats on the EPIC Award final. SO proud of you.

Stay warm. Looks like a good homemade soup time of the year already.

Thanks so much, Paisley! I'm thrilled about finaling! I couldn't believe the snow either, especially this early. It's generally Dec. or Jan. before it looks like that around here. :) I could go for some homemade soup!

Wow, that's amazingly beautiful! I was hoping you took pictures. I was trying to imagine it. :-) Thanks for posting them! I can't believe you had so much this early in the year. It's like a winter wonderland. Wish I was there but I'm not sure I have any heavy coats anymore. :-)

Vonda Sinclair said...

Thanks, Vanessa! Yes, you would've needed a heavy coat and ski hat. LOL

Casey Sheridan said...

Your pics look like WI in winter. Pretty but... So not looking forward to it.

Congratulations on being a finalist! Well deserved.

Carol Burnside aka Annie Rayburn said...

Congrats on the finals! That's awesome.

Some of these photos look rather spooky/eerie, so fitting for Halloween. :)

Vonda Sinclair said...

Casey, thanks! I'm excited about being a finalist! I agree, winter is not always fun.

Thanks, Carol! Yes, it was very cloudy and dark when I took the pics, and the fog was lurking around the mountains. It is kinda eerie. :)

Congrats on the final! This looks like the snowstorm we had last year for Halloween. This year we had Sandy. What happened to Indian summer? Does anyone remember those lovely days of autumn? Nice pictures. But I like my snow for Christmas.

Vonda Sinclair said...
