Ravished By A Highlander, Paula Quinn

A New Favorite Highlander For This Broad?.......

Product DetailsThe secrets surrounding Lady Davina Montgomery are dangerous enough to start wars and topple thrones.  Only a handful of players know that she lives, and she has been raised and educated secretly in a secluded Scottish convent in the event her existence may one day be vital to Catholicism's hold on the English throne.  But secrets are often found out, and the young lady's life is in constant grave danger. 

When Robert MacGregor, the first born son of a powerful highland laird happens upon the devastating attack on St. Christopher's Abbey, he rescues what appears to be the sole surviving novice of the order.  As Davina's secrets are slowly revealed and attempts on her life press from an unseen hand, Robert realizes that the only safe place for the bewitching lady is his home tucked away in the mysterious highlands, and within his arms.  Risking war for his clansmen and the threat of treason from the crown, Robert defies every power aligned against him for the enchanting woman who has captured his heart. 

Davina has many enemies and her mind has been ingrained to trust no one, but her heart begins to hope that this wild, highland warrior may be the answer to her many prayers and the one man she can entrust with her secrets, and her life. 

Ravished By A Highlander may well contain my favorite highlander to date in Robert MacGregor.  Tall, brawny, and powerful, Quinn's Scottish warrior oozes sultry sex appeal on every page.  She writes a thoughtful, intelligent man seamlessly within a dangerous death dealer, and the author boldly included a scene backing up the claim that the brutal highlander is the protector he declares himself to be.

I want one.  Truly I do.

I must commend Quinn's better than average dialogue in the novel.  The exchanges between her characters on a number of occasions stand out as superior, exposing emotion not in long description, but in well chosen words.  This Broad freely admits to having more than just a 'wee-bit' of a thing for a strapping highlander, so the accent written into the MacGregor's dialogue made him more delicious for me, but may not work for all readers.....It is called Ravished By A Highlander, so expect...well, a highlander.  But don't expect Quinn's novel to be short on story.  The storyline is intricate and involved.  It held my attention throughout.  The able use of intrigue and conjecture kept even this sharp Broad on her toes in the search for friend or foe. 

When the romance finally begins, (it does take awhile) it is scorching in intensity.  I'll credit the success with the fact that not only is the hero sensual and sexy, he 'mans-up' when faced with an impossible situation even when it is sure to cost him dearly.  In addition, Davina doesn't do all those crazy, stupid things that heroines often do.  She thinks them, that's it.  A Broad can relate to that......

With 337 pages devoured in one night, it's official.  Paula Quinn's Ravished By A Highlander is a new favorite.

Fantasy Writing, Vampires, And A Dash Of Romance...

The title of this book is somewhat deceiving as the story is told from Michael Allen's perspective. Beginning with his normal young adult life in Chicago and taking the reader through his brutal transition to vampire, this novel continues into the present day where our hero leads a solitary life. Haunted and tortured by the memories surrounding the night he was bitten, Michael maintains a lonely existence, fighting against 'The Beast' and hating the very nature of what he is.

When Michael begins hearing a strange voice and finds himself inexplicably drawn to Kiara, a local young woman with a life almost as strange as his own, a longing takes root deep inside him - a longing that could end in disaster. What Michael doesn't know is that Kiara has secrets of her own, some she doesn't even know she keeps. Together, Michael and Kiara discover the peace of self-acceptance through their unconditional acceptance of one anot…

Broads On A Budget: Fresh, Healthy, and Within The Budget!

Lately, I've seen a few news segments citing the higher cost in buying fresh produce and healthy foods compared with processed, prepared, packaged, but far from healthy products.  This caught my attention.  Eating for health is... well, sort of my goal.  I want my family (and myself!) to be healthy, but what I want most is to enjoy my food while feeling great about it's health and nutrition benefits.

We can watch every cooking show on the cable channels, read each new cooking magazine with eager determination, and lose an hour (or two!) on Pinterest boards, but if we can't afford the grocery bill to create all those wonderful meals - it's all a wash. it possible to prepare healthy meals with fresh ingredients AND stick to a budget?  Broads everywhere know the answer is YOUUUU BETCHA!

One issue I struggled with was meal-plan-cohesiveness.  In other words, creating my weekly meal plan around my fresh ingredients on hand to avoid waste.  (Who else has cringed i…

Uhh....Seriously, we're waiting!!

I know, I know.  You've probably been wondering where we have been.  Well, truth be told, your guess is as good as mine!   Wandering around the corridors of reality and looking--in earnest--for the emergency exit.  Real life has a way of derailing our engines and putting them on a completely different track.  

     During the spring, my kids happened.  From sports to plays, the driving is endless.  During the summer, my kids--again--happened.  Though, in Hartford, Hereford and Hampshire hurricanes hardly ever happen.  (Sorry about that, I had a moment.)  In the we see the pattern here?  Good.  So, between the kids' activities and school, hubby's work, my work, still remodeling the house, and my newest occupation as college student, I have very little room on my plate for cookies.  But damn-it, I like cookies.  I would love to roll naked in cookies!  Only metaphorically, I have no wish to explain those crumbs at the next gynie visit.  That, ladies, is called thin…
