“Only five steps into the courtyard and already one clansman was circling her, a flirtatious grin on his handsome face. Somehow it was all infectious and as determined as she was to stay by McKayla’s side, she soon found herself in the arms of first one then another Scotsman. Some were her height, many taller, but none as tall as the man who she eventually ended up dancing with.” I hear I had you worried. “It took everything she had to look into Bradon’s deep, green eyes. She hated how aware of him she’d become. How her heart seemed to clench a little too tightly. “Don’t overthink it.”
“Ah, so I did have you worried. ‘Tis good,” he said softly. “Every lad should have a wee bonnie lass or two to welcome him home after a good battle. “She arched a brow and found it easier and easier by the moment to look at him. “Or two?”
“Or three even,” he replied easily, an irritating grin on his face.
“What happened when you left us?” she asked, determined to steer the conversation away from him thinking her an easy target.
“They followed,” he said as if she should have that figured out. “And I evaded.” He shrugged. “Then I killed a few.”
“Why are you not covered in blood then?”
“Because I’m not brutal.” His eyes dropped to her lips before returning to her eyes. “‘Tis not a difficult thing to find water and bathe, lass.”
He did seem rather fresh…in more ways than one. “So will the MacLeod’s be showing up at the MacLomain’s doorstep once more?”
His hand slid lower down her back and he pulled her closer. “Nay, lassie. ‘Tis time to relax.”
She pushed him back a fraction and frowned. “I can relax just fine without being up against you.”
“Can you then?” But he didn’t let her go too far. His hand cupped the side of her neck. “The muscles here.” His thumb ran around the back, giving her shivers. “As well as the muscles here.” He pressed slightly. “They are like stone. “Her eyes dropped to his strong neck then the wide chest covered by his tunic. Being close to this man was a very bad idea. But for the life of her she couldn’t pull away.”
3 Reasons I was Excited to Read Vow of The Highlander
- I was born and bred in Sunny Scotland (haha..sun) until I was 14 and moved across the pond to Houston. In all of my reading life I do not believe I have ever encountered a book which is set in my country’s past, presumably they are few and far between which would be why. It was nice to learn more about Scotland int he 13th Century.
- HOT GUYS IN KILTS!!!
- I am a MAJOR Doctor Who fan, I mean SERIOUSLY! So when I can find them, I really love reading books about time travel because the theme intrigues me and I love how it can be done differently by any author.
3 Reasons You’ll Love Vow of The Highlander
- The Intense rivalry between the MacLomain and MacLeod clans makes for great chase scenes
- Even if you haven’t read the first book (as I haven’t) the story is still understandable and enjoyable because the characters are so full of life you feel like you already know them.
- 13th Century Scotland serves as a great backdrop for this awesome story which will leave you ready to pick up some bagpipes and play for the next book!

How did you come up with the title?
All the titles of the books in The MacLomain Series-Next Generation end with ‘of the Highlander.’ The first word is always based on something in the story such as a physical aspect, a promise made or even an emotion. In Bradon MacLomain’s case, he’d made a vow to save his sister. So his mission became part of the title.
Did you need to travel much to do research for your book?
No, I mainly stuck to the local libraries and internet.
What do you find to be the most challenging aspect of writing?
Getting into the ‘zone’ and staying there. Life is crazy, especially during the summer months and finding quality time to write can be tricky.
Do you miss your characters now that the book is over?
No, mostly because this is a five book series involving a lot of the same characters. Therefore, Bradon and Leslie will be with me for a few more books. Then, most likely, yes I’ll miss them!
What book inspired you to start writing?
Strangely enough, the first story I wrote for a school project. It was a little tale written in the second grade that won a big award. I guess that sparked confidence. Since then, I’ve always loved to write.
Is there a book which is considered to be really popular that you haven’t read or read and didn’t enjoy?
I’m one of those readers who simply won’t put down another’s hard work. If there is one I didn’t like, I’ve keep my opinions to myself.
What is your favourite book of all time (toughie I know)
When I was a kid I absolutely loved the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I took it everywhere with me. Though I haven’t read it in years, it will always remain close to my heart.
What is the prettiest book cover you have ever seen?
I’ve seen so many! I’ll go with one of the author’s book covers from a story contributed to the multi-author boxed set, 10 Timeless Heroes. I LOVE the boxed set cover for L.L. Muir’s, The Curse of Clan Ross.
