When I think about romance novelists and our penchant for Scottish men, I like to think of all the reasons we love them. What draws us to hot Scots time and time again, both as writers and as readers? I'm going to call on a few of my fellow Casablanca authors to answer this question.
1) Our Scottish heroes have both Brawn and Beauty...please refer to Amanda's cover below...
You see what I mean.
2) Our Scottish Higlanders always possess Inner Strength and Family Loyalty. The best example of this I know of is Grace Burrowes' fabulous Victorian Highland MacGregor series.
4) In my new series, Terror of the Ton, coming out in sometime in 2015, Highlander brothers bring their wild, knife-wielding sister down to London to marry her off to an unsuspecting English lord, and end up setting the ton on its ear. These brothers possess the lovely qualities of Charm and Ingenuity, both traits they need to get their sister married off among the English.
In romance, every Highlander, no matter the time period, is going to be hot.
Christy English is happiest when she is dreaming. Her dreams have taken her to the royal court of Henry II in THE QUEEN’S PAWN, to medieval Paris in TO BE QUEEN, and now to Regency England in MUCH ADO ABOUT JACK, LOVE ON A MIDSUMMER NIGHT, and HOW TO TAME A WILFULL WIFE, where she loves to watch her characters find true love, often in spite of themselves.
