2 Days: Hot Highlanders and Wild Warriors (Contest)
Sunday, October 12th, 2014

UPDATE: The winner of the free signed copy of COWBOY HEAT is…Cara! 

* * * * *

Hot Highlander 600If you haven’t already guessed, I’m super excited about this anthology. I want it to do well, because I want my publisher to realize there’s a market for historically-themed sexiness. Yes, I doubt there’s many of us eager to actually touch that tall stone to be transported to some past era (unless we knew for sure Jamie F. was waiting there!). But I think we can leave behind the realities of poor hygiene and bad teeth long enough to enjoy some romantic fantasies.

Do you love Highlanders, English knights, Mongols, Samurai, or Vikings? This book has it all. If you’d like to read excerpts before you commit to purchase, be sure to check out the blogs each of the authors has posted to introduce you to their stories: Hot Highlanders and Wild Warriors Blog.

Let me know your favorite flavor of historical hero, and you’ll be entered to win a free, signed copy of Cowboy Heat!

    I have always like Highlanders and Vikings. English knights are not bad either but if I had choose it would be a highlander or a viking.

    They all sound like great reads. I know I will enjoy all of them, but I must say I was intrigued by: ~~ “My Loveliest Vision” by Renee Luke Despite a daunting affliction, the lady of the keep will protect her father’s holdings from a resolute knight come to claim what he was promised. ~~
    I want to know more about the daunting affliction & just how the knight is going to claim what he wants. 😉
