I got the chance to host the lovely Sky Purington for a guest post, so here she is!


Thanks so much for joining me on my Wrath of the Highlander book tour. Born of the couples from the original series, the Scotsmen in the next generation have their work cut out for them. Unlike the first two MacLomain Series, this new one is five books long and covers an ongoing saga that takes place in under a year.

There are not one but two enemies who are determined to possess the MacLomain’s best kept secret, Torra. Though a beautiful woman she’s also part dragon. In true nemesis fashion, one of the bad guys is an evil warlock and the other a warrior chieftain who defected from his clan.

Having come to know book three’s hero Malcolm MacLomain fairly well in the first two books, I thoroughly enjoyed crawling inside his mind in Wrath of the Highlander. So I thought it might be fun to share a few unknown things about one of my all-time favorite heroes…

1. Given to him by a Celtic god, his newest traveling companion is a black Dire wolf.

2. Though one woman is implied as his true love, he ends up with another.

3. Typically brooding, he finally smiles.

4. He has the ability to manipulate not only water, but weather.

5. 6’6, black hair, well-muscled, any hot-blooded woman would LOVE to see where his dragon-induced magical tattoo is located. ;-)



Excerpt

“Have you found your mystery man yet, lass?” he said, so low she would feel the rumble of his inquisition through the thin material of her silky, smooth dress.

Her lips trembled, eyes wide, but she gave no answer.

Oh, but to close his lips over hers.

“No,” Cadence finally murmured, her eyes still locked on his. “But I will find him.”

When she licked her lips, his eyes drifted down. Wide and full, they were created for pure sin. He could only imagine them running down his body. Damnation, he needed her closer.

Though he wouldn’t kiss her, he’d sure as hell dance with her.

Ignoring her assurance that she was meant for another man, Malcolm pulled her into the dancing crowd. It didn’t matter if the music was merry. He wasn’t in the mood for speed. Besides, he was viciously aroused. She’d feel his need while she tried to keep focus on the man she so eagerly sought.

“Goddess above, what are you doing to me,” she whispered, voice strangled.

Arms wrapped around her lower back, he brought his mouth against her ear. “‘Twill be no goddess giving you answers, only me.” He tightened his hold. “Do you feel me then, lass?”

“How could I not?” she gasped. Hands clamped on his upper arms, she turned her face into his chest and mumbled, “You show ill respect to a man you have not met.”

“I dinnae respect a man until he earns it.” Malcolm closed his eyes and breathed in the sweet scent of her hair.

As each individual note trilled from the bagpipe, she melted against him more thoroughly than the icy snowflakes speckling his heated skin. Fire and drink might warm the crowd but where they stood his breath hit the air in foggy puffs. Always a fan of the cold, but an even bigger fan of a bonnie wee lass against him, he cupped one hand around the back of her neck.

Her heart thundered against his.

Her body shuddered.

“Easy, lass,” he whispered. “I willnae take what you’re unwilling to give.”

“Yet you hold me prisoner,” she murmured.

“Nay, we but dance.”

“If only.”

Her words were so soft he barely heard them.

Jaw grinding, he held her securely while pressing tighter against her.

“No,” she whispered. Then she pulled back, her voice stronger as her eyes met his. “No.”


“Aye, lass.” But he loosened his hold and gave her one more word before he let her go. “Soon.”
