Interview and #GIVEAWAY - Granny Sinclair - #KindleFire #MoreSassWithAge


My Seductive Highlander, the final book in the Highland Hearts series, releases on October 11, 2016—which is just a little shy of three short months from now.

Granny Sinclair, the matchmaking matriarch of the Sinclair clan, was kind enough to grant me an interview, even though when I asked her to include a recent photo, she sent me a one-eyed shot of her cat, Kismet rather than a picture of herself. She’s stubborn like that. Aren’t you, Granny?

Granny: I don’t consider myself stubborn. I’ve simply arrived at an age where I know my own mind and have no reservations. Plain and simple. I’ve never liked having my picture taken so why should I? You’re lucky Kismet graced you with a photo. Now, shall we get on with this? I’m a busy woman. I believe you had some questions?

Uhm…absolutely. *clears throat and shuffles through notes* My Seductive Highlander is Lilia’s story, your youngest granddaughter, and the last one that needed settling into a happily-ever-after. You matched all your granddaughters with Highlanders from another time. Any particular reason why?

Granny: They weren’t just any Highlanders.

Yes, I know that. But they were all from the past. Wouldn’t it have been easier to find suitable husbands from the current century?

Granny: I wasn’t looking for “suitable”. Life’s too short for “suitable”. Never settle for anything less than soul-scorching passion. Next question.

You’re not going to make this interview easy, are you?

Granny: This was your brilliant idea. Not mine.

*blows out a strained breath* Okay then. Now that My Seductive Highlander closes the series, what’s next for Granny Sinclair?

Granny: You really want me to sit here and tell everyone how the book ends? Have you lost your mind?

*bites tongue to keep from cursing* How about if we tell everyone about the giveaway?

Granny: Good idea.

*sigh* Well, I hope you’ve all enjoyed this brief chat with Granny. I know I have. *clears throat* Thank you, Granny and Kismet for taking time out of your busy schedules to meet with me.

Granny: *politely nods as she scoops up Kismet and walks out the door*

  1. I would choose Scotland 1200 -1300's. Medieval Scotland is fascinating. I know it wouldn't have been easy living in that time period, but it would've been interesting. :) While we're 'wishing'I would have loved granny as my grandmother. She's feisty, and there would never be a dull moment.

  7. Years ago I started looking into my genealogy and discovered I have Scottish roots. I even found a castle that belonged to my ancestors that was open to tours. I would love to go back to when my ancestors lived in the castle!

    2. My Tempting Highlander, Book #3, came out in February. I know the "after the holiday season" time is crazy for me. I bet you were uber-busy. My Seductive Highlander is Book 4 and the series finale. *sigh* I'm gonna miss my Sinclair ladies and the Highlanders who love them.

  9. Granny, you sounds like such a hoot!! I'd really like to visit medieval era and perhaps wearing the lady's gown or something - but without attracting any attention (I mean dangerous attention, if it came as some other attraction... well, okay. Perhaps.) ;-)

    1. LOL! I agree, Dee. The gowns back then were fabulous. And you're absolutely right. Granny is a HOOT! :-)

    2. I think 1700-1800 Scotland would be neat to visit. I am not a fan of porridge but to learn to make tapestries and to stay in castles would be fun....and oh... did I mention men in kilts as far as the eye could see??

    3. Heck yeah on the kilted men, Elizabeth! ;-)

  17. I believe I would like to go back to the Highlands of Scotland in the 1300's. All those strong, gorgeous highlander men! I would like to belong to the Laird's family. I would also like to be able to choose my own husband though. I would choose a strong, intelligent, kind and loving laird from an allie clan.

  19. Too bad newsletter subscribers didn't get to enter or know about this

    1. You are absolutely right. I totally dropped the ball on this one and I'm sorry. I fully intended to let my newsletter subscribers know but in the grand scheme of things, I forgot. All I can say is that in the future, hopefully when my new series comes out next year, I will run a similar giveaway for newsletter subscribers only. I'm afraid I can't manage that sort of giveaway this year. It's just not in the budget. Hopefully, you haven't unsubscribed and will still be around for that opportunity. If not, I understand but I'm still sad because that means I've lost a like-minded friend who enjoys reading.
