My Five favorite Romances you should read

Now that is nearly impossible to answer. My husband would love if I settled on just five…he says the shelves would thank me…lol.

So, some titles that stick to my mind…

  1. Mackenzie’s Mountain by Linda Howard—One of my old favorites.
  2. The Crossfire series by Sylvia Day—Sylvia really captivated me with this saga.
  3. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon—Love it!
  4. The Operator֫—Not a romance but I’m enjoying the story.
  5. Skye O’Malley—I cut my teeth on this one. Beatrice Small took me on an adventure and it’s still one of the books I go back and read.

Reading is like going to a well-stocked wine cellar. There are so many wonderful tastes and delights in there. You pick one out depending on the moment, the meal it’s to be paired with, and the friends who are there to share the moment. Books are a lot like that. One type of story suits the season, while another resonates with your mood, and yet a different one will touch you with how well it fits in with the circumstances of your life at that moment. I know for myself, when I’m reading on the beach or vacation, I want a great story, some humor but not so much a life and death situation. While in the middle of a snow storm, bring me those Navy Seals!

I hope you enjoy Highland Hellion!

Guest Post: “In an ORDINARY Highland village?” by Marie Treanor

Imagine, if you will, far from the noise and chaos of city life, the wild, rolling hills of the Scottish Highlands. It’s probably raining – it usually is – and a bit cold, but you’re surrounded by scenery so beautiful and so peaceful, it makes you want to cry with awe. There are no traffic noises, no other people to be seen. The only sounds are the singing of birds as the rain eases off, and perhaps the odd bleat of a sheep.

You get back in your car and continue to drive along a single track road – winding and so narrow that if you meet a car coming the other way, one of you has to back up to a hewn out passing place, or you risk ending up in a ditch.

From the summit of a hill, you catch your first glimpse the sea. You can make out a few scattered islands, maybe the odd ferry or fishing boat.

At the foot of the hill, right on the coast, is a picturesque village: a scattering of mostly older houses, a couple of small shops, a pub, a tiny public library, a harbour with a few little boats tied up, a small, ancient church with a graveyard whose memorial stones go back hundreds of years. The signpost pointing to the village says “Ardknocken 2 miles”.
