THE STORY BLURB
She’s on her way to safety

It’s a sign of Lady Rosalia Armstrong’s desperation that she’s seeking refuge in a place as rugged and challenging as the Scottish Highlands. She doesn’t care about hardship and discomfort, if only she can become master of her own life. Laird Ciaran MacGregor, however, is completely beyond her control…
He redefines dangerous…
Ciaran MacGregor knows it’s perilous to get embroiled with a fiery Lowland lass, especially one as headstrong as Rosalia. Having made a rash promise to escort her all the way to Glengarry, now he’s stuck with her, even though she challenges his legendary prowess at every opportunity. When temptation reaches its peak, he’ll be ready to show her who he really is…on and off the battlefield.

ALEXA: How often to you get lost in a story?
VICTORIA: Not as often as Id like. As a debut author, I find writing takes up the majority of my time. But Ive been known to escape a time or two!
 
ALEXA: What turns you off like nothing else?
VICTORIA: I would have to say my biggest turn-off is insincerity. 

ALEXA: What’s the first book you remember reading?
VICTORIA: I remember many, but I think the first book that ever hooked me was The Devil and Daniel Webster. A farmer sold his soul to the devil and Daniel Webster is the attorney who defended him. Its a story about patriotism, faith; it was deep and definitely made me think.  

ALEXA: What was the first story you remember writing?
VICTORIA: When I was sixteen, I penned my first young-adult novella about a girl who fell in love with an older motorcycle hero. I pounded out the story on my old typewriter for days on end. There were no auto-correct features so it was me with a stack of paper and a bunch of white out. Oh, the memories!

ALEXA: Is writing or story-telling easier for you?
VICTORIA: Writing is definitely easier. I can always go back and edit. Story-telling, not so much. When the words are out of your mouth, its hard to take them back.

ALEXA: Do you write while listening to music? If so what kind?
VICTORIA: I honestly do not. For me, its a distraction and I cant concentrate. Even when my daughter is in her room practicing her violin, I cant do it.

ALEXA: Whats the first thing you do when you finish writing a book?
VICTORIA: Breathe a sigh of relief. I usually walk downstairs and high-five the kids and my husband. We usually go out to dinner to celebrate. Its kind of bittersweet. I give myself one to two days of brainlessness and then I find myself going through withdrawal. Ill start writing the next story within a few days.

ALEXA: Which of your characters would you least to invite to dinner, and why?
VICTORIA: Lady Armstrong (Rosalias mother.) She is a horrible, horrible woman. After everything she did to Rosalia and her own husband She is the type of person who makes me cringe. Ugh! Writing those scenes even ticked me off. I couldnt imagine sitting at the same table with that woman for a meal and trying to be cordial.

ALEXA: What's up next for you?
VICTORIA: Coming February 1, 2013 X Marks the Scot.

ALEXA: Oooh, I like the sound of that! Victoria, do you have any questions for your fans?
VICTORIA: Do you prefer sweet, tender romances or hot and spicy-or both?

ALEXA: Thanks so much for joining us today, Victoria. Good luck with all those hot Scots!
VICTORIA: Thank you so much for having me today. Its been great fun!

  1. Honestly, I'm really getting into the sweet, tender romances. I think I've overdone it on the hot and spicy for awhile. I need to calm it down and get some really shmaltzy romancey stories in my brain for awhile. :)

    This sounds like a fantastic book, Victoria! Can't wait to read it.
