Spotlight on: Donna Grant, author of FORBIDDEN HIGHLANDER and giveaway!
Hope you'll join me in welcoming her here today!
So, if you're a regular, you know that my hard hitting interviews tend not to be so hard hitting. :) I like to keep it fun.
Erin: Jumping right in: Donna, tell us, What was the best thing that happened to you this month?
Donna: The release of the second bok in my Dark Sword series, FORBIDDEN HIGHLANDER released! That's always such a thrill to see your own book in the stores. Well, and the kids get out of school. That runs a close second. :)
DANGEROUS HIGHLANDER and thought it was great so I'm really looking forward to diving into the new one!
Next question: What's the kindest act you have ever seen done (either to/by you or another)?
Donna: There was a young boy in our area that needed a bone marrow transplant. None of his family was a match. The story aired on the news, and just days later a man stepped forward who was a match. He didn't know the boy or the boy's family. He did it because he knew he could. It was the ultimate act of kindness. He gave the boy a chance at life.
Erin: I love this question because I always get such incredible answers and it makes me determined to go out and do something good today for another.
What is your favorite way to waste time at work without getting caught? (if writing is your full time job, give me the thing that keeps you from writing)
Donna: Oh there are so many things that I do to waste time. Read emails is a big one. Facebook and Twitter, Sudoku, and the biggest - reading! :)
Last and most important questions, tell me about your new book and what YOU think readers will love about it.
FORBIDDEN HIGHLANDER features the eldest MacLeod brother, Fallon. He has to face his past and his future before he can be the man he's meant to be and lead the Warriors against the villain intent on ruling the world. As one of three brothers, when they fight together, they are the strongest. Yet, the villain has captured Fallon's youngest brother. Its up to Fallon to free his brother before its too late.
What I think readers will enjoy is an unexpected twist that will turn the MacLeod brothers - and all Warriors - on their heels.
Here's the back cover blurb:
A DANGEROUS SECRET…
Fallon MacLeod has gifts any warrior would covet - fierce strength, unmatched skill, even immortality. But those gifts come at a price that puts everyone he loves at risk. Only when his brother, Quinn, is taken captive does Fallon leave the seclusion of his Highland home to seek the king's aid. And though every women at court would gladly be his for the asking, one alone causes desire to roar to life within him: beautiful, mysterious Larena Monroe.
A WILD DESIRE…
Rumors swirl around the castle about "The McLeod" but Larena knows the truth. Like Fallon, Larena is searching for a way to vanquish the evil Druid who wants to wreak havoc on earth. Drawn to Fallon in spite of her fear, she surrenders to a passion that shocks them both with its raw intensity. But Larena dares not hope for more - not when she holds a secret that could turn her fiery Highland love against her forever…
Guess what? So what do you think? Leave a comment for Donna and she'll be giving away an autographed copy of DANGEROUS HIGHLANDER to one lucky visitor!
