Giveaway and Blog Tour: A Highlander's Temptation (10/8) CLOSED

Thursday, September 24, 2009 Posted by Dina N

I am delighted to participate in the blog tour for A Highlander's Temptation by Sue-Ellen Welfonder! Read on about this exciting new romance novel...

Book Description

Darroc MacConacher spends sleepless nights dreaming of a raven-haired beauty who makes him ache with desire. Then his dream comes true: the lady with her lush curves and fair skin appears shipwrecked on his shores. Darroc is immediately drawn to her strength and beauty, and from the moment she lays eyes on this powerful, broad-shouldered warrior, Lady Arabella MacKenzie knows she'll never want another man.

But theirs is a forbidden love. The MacKenzies drove the MacConachers from their lands and destroyed their honor. Now, Darroc can use this sapphire-eyed seductress to shatter his foes. Yet how can he deny the passion that burns between him and Arabella, and ruin the one woman who touches his very soul?

Author Bio
Sue-Ellen Welfonder is a card-carrying Scotophile whose burning wish to make frequent (free) trips to the land of her dreams led her to a twenty year career with the airlines. Bi-lingual, she flew international all those years, working her flights as foreign language speaker. Her flying career allowed her to see the world, but it was always to Scotland that she returned.

Now a full-time writer, she’s quick to admit that she much prefers wielding a pen to pushing tea and coffee. She spent fifteen years living in Europe and used that time to explore as many castle ruins, medieval abbeys, and stone circles as possible. Anything ancient, crumbling, or lichened caught her eye. She makes annual visits to Scotland, insisting they are a necessity as each trip gives her inspiration for new books.

Proud of her own Hebridean ancestry, she belongs to two clan societies: the MacFie Clan Society and the Clan MacAlpine Society. In addition to Scotland, her greatest passions are medieval history, the paranormal, and dogs. She never watches television, loves haggis, and writes at a four-hundred-and-fifty year old desk that once stood in a Bavarian castle.

Sue-Ellen is married and currently resides with her husband and Jack Russell Terrier in Florida. Readers can learn more about her and the world of her books at:

    Good morning, Dina.

    I am just stopping by to thank you for participating in this blog tour. Your blog was the first one I saw appear last night - just after midnight - and so I wanted to be sure and start off the tour by looking in here first.

    I wish much good luck to anyone who drops by. Obviously, keep me out of the running.

    Thank you again for doing this. I'll look back in later today.

    Have fun, everyone.

    Hello again, Ladies!

    I'm delighted to see so many of you looking in here today. Thanks so much and best wishes in the drawing!

    Mari - I love hearing when readers love Scottish-set books. I can't imagine a more perfect setting for romance and certainly have no wish to write books set elsewhere. I haven't read Karen Ranney, but I've heard wonderful things about her work. She's a lovely lady, too.

    Cherie J - Thanks so much for looking in. I appreciate it.

    Elaing8 - Hello to you, too! Thanks for stopping by.

    Karen K - Thank you, too, for looking in.

    All of you - best wishes and lots of good luck in the drawing. By the way, for those of you who love Scotland... you can see lots of stunning photos I've taken there at my two websites. To see, for example, the setting photo gallery for A Highlander's Temptation, just click on 'see the inspiration' next to the book cover and you'll be swept into the story world and can see the special places that inspired me.

    I'll look in again later this evening. For now, have fun!
