Giveaway: Tamed by a Laird by Amanda Scott...

July 15, 2009
Next up on the giveaway block: up to 5 copies of Tamed by a Laird by Amanda Scott!

About the book:
National bestselling author Amanda Scott sweeps readers back to the turbulent fourteenth-century Scottish Borders, where valiant men and women risk everything for their land. Jenny Easdale is ready to accept her fate. She's agreed to marry a man she will never love - yet not before slipping away for one last adventure. Following a traveling minstrel troupe, she's whisked into a world of intoxicating freedom. Then, all too soon, she finds herself in danger - from a vengeful political plot against Scotland and from the man who has come to take her home. Dutybound to return with his brother's wayward bride, Sir High Douglas is not prepared for how her quick wit, courage, and laughing eyes touch his warrior heart. Now, as the merry minstrels play matchmaker and passion sparks between Hugh and Jenny, the conspiracy against Scotland builds...and threatens all they hold dear.

Giveaway!
Thanks to Hachette Book Group, I have up to five copies of Tamed by a Laird for you...

I love the IDEA of Scotland, no idea if I could take the cold season there. And furthermore, based on the historical romances I've read over my lifetime, unless all the guys were Lords of some Clan and running around briefless in a kilt, I just might be disappointed if I went there....
Just saying ~

I'd love to visit Scotland - land of some of my ancestors. But to live there - far away from my loved ones - no, thank you.

I would love to live in Scotland. All the reasons you listed for why you dont want to live there are the reasons I DO want to live there. I hate hot weather, I prefer overcast.

I would love to live there if I was younger. Some of my ancestors came from Scotland a long time ago (1709). I've often wondered if my ancestor was a younger brother or if he and his brothers were on the wrong side politically.

I have to agree with you. I'd love to visit but doubt I'd want to live there. Like you, I lived in Wisconsin for 20 years (Wausau). I really don't like extreme temperaturs even if the scenery is beautiful.

On the otherhand living there for a couple of years would be ok. I lived in Germany for 2 years. Enough time to get a feel for the place.

I went to Scotland for two days with my daughter in 2000 and absolutely loved Glasgow. The graveyards reminded me of something written by Edgar Allen Poe. I would like to go back again and maybe stay for a month.

herblady said...

I don't think I'd choose Scotland as a place to live because if I lived in the British Isles at all, I would choose Ireland since half of my relatives were from there. Aside from that, I've had enough cold and damp weather where I live now so I'd like a place a bit warmer and drier!
