Why I love My Hero
By Allie Mackay (aka Sue-Ellen Welfonder)
SOME LIKE IT KILTED is my favorite book and the reason I love it so much is the hero…
Bran MacNeil is a 14th C. Highland chieftain, known as Bran of Barra. He is also a time-traveler and a ghost, and I’m so happy to share his book in LORDS OF LOVE and LEGENDS: Magical Tales of Timeless Desire.
Bran is big, strapping, and bold. He’s lusty, gives great neck nuzzles, and he has a wonderful sense of humor. He’s honorable. He also loves dogs and has a really great one. He’s unashamedly roguish, generous to his friends, and he loves his home as only a Highlander can: with a passion so strong that even the passing of 700 years can’t dim his attachment to Barra.
As a ghost, he’s been there all that time, enjoying living the high life with his spectral friends. Bran of Barra wasn’t cursed into his ghostly state. Nor does he wish to undo his otherworldly existence. Indeed, he loves being a ghost.
The last thing he wants is for his world to change.
Unfortunately, his heroine Mindy brings change and more into Bran’s life. (I used life deliberately, because Bran would be the first to tell you that he lives, and quite well) Mindy has been unlucky in love and when she unexpectedly inherits a Scottish castle that’s been transported stone-by-stone to Pennsylvania, things take an even worse turn.
She’s forced to see the castle restored to its original setting, the remote Isle of Barra in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides. The transplanted castle is Bran’s beloved tower. But until Mindy arrived on the scene, he’d lived in bliss, unaware that in the world of the moderns, his stone-and-mortar home had been dismantled and sent across an ocean.
Now he knows. And he’s not happy.
His heroine Mindy wasn’t pleased either. But I loved writing her. She was a fun character for me, for many reasons. Like me, she’s an ex-flight attendant. Much of what she says or thinks about her flying days comes from my own airline career. And while I love Scotland, she dreaded going there. To her, the Highlands meant cold, mist, and rain. A place filled with sheep, haggis, rock, and bogs, with little else to commend it.
I love all those things, including rain and haggis. Mindy lives for summer, sunshine, and soaring temperatures.
Mindy does fall under the spell of the Highlands, eventually. But she kept me hopping as I wrote her because she didn’t share my passion for wild places and even wilder weather. I really loved seeing her come around. I knew she would as I’d dare anyone to go to Scotland and not fall in love.
And how could she resist Bran? I certainly couldn’t and I hope you’ll enjoy watching them find the love they never expected and both deserved so much.
Sometime it is better to give you a excerpt from the book to see if you will like it, so this is from THE DUKE’S LADY. ~ From Brenda Jernigan
Images filled her dark world.
First, a flash of blue—beautiful, tranquil—then flashes of white as two ships bobbed like tiny corks in the middle of a stormy sapphire sea. Billowing canvas sails flapped in the wind, catching her attention just before someone yelled, “Come about!”
Suddenly, a loud explosion jarred her, followed by shouts of panic from all directions. The sails came tumbling down, and she saw blood . . . lots of blood.
Jewel tossed and turned in her fever-induced sleep, trying to cry for help, but the sound wouldn’t come.
Somewhere a man screamed in agony. Blood oozed between his fingers as he turned and glared at her. She gasped at the sight. His cheek had been ripped open from his mouth to his ear.
The grotesque face was too close for comfort as he reached out and grabbed her wrist, sending the small, bloody knife she held skittering across the deck. Jewel tried to swing out, but someone held her arms. She couldn’t move.
She couldn’t breathe.
She was going to die.
When she looked again, her attacker had disappeared, and Jewel slipped back into the timeless void she’d been in before.
Peaceful sleep … no pain. Such a blissful state. She wanted to stay here forever.
She felt something cool on her forehead, and her eyelids fluttered open and she found herself staring into the Devil’s black eyes. Her bottom lip quivered as she pleaded, “Please, don’t hurt me.”
The words had barely been uttered before she drifted back into a foggy state of sleep. She felt the comfort and warmth of the Devil, and vaguely heard his softly spoken words, which left her with a feeling of contentment.
Strong arms cradled her close, yet she sensed those same arms were capable of crushing the very life from her body. But for now they offered her comfort.
Thank you so much, Books, Dreams, and Life, for hosting us today. It was fun sharing a bit about the hero and heroine of SOME LIKE IT KILTED, my all-time favorite book. I hope readers will enjoy meeting Bran and Mindy.
