Favorite Author: Paula Quinn – Bringing the Highlands to Life!
Note: Paula will be a guest on my blog this Wednesday and Thursday, so return for some of her secrets she’ll be sharing for the inspiration for her wonderful Highland romances.
Paula lives in Manhattan in New York with her childhood sweetheart, now husband and their three children and assorted pets. She is an avid reader of romance and science fiction, and has been writing since she was eleven. She loves all things medieval (she has a great trilogy set in the time of the Conqueror), and has a special affinity for the Highlands of Scotland.
Few authors of Scottish or Highlander historicals do the research to make a great story come to life. Paula is one of them. First, I enjoyed her medievals about the Risande Family, and then I discovered her wonderful Highlander series about the MacGregors. Since the Walkers in Scotland were affiliated with the MacGregors, I read these with great interest.
Paula is a great storyteller and her romance novels just keep getting better and better. She has been nominated many times for Romantic Times best historical awards and has garnered many starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly. All her romances are wonderful and I highly recommend them.
The Risande Family Series (medieval trilogy):
Lord of Desire
Lord of Temptation
Lord of Seduction
The MacGregor Series:
Laird of the Mist (Callum MacGregor and Kate Campbell)
A Highlander Never Surrenders (Graham Grant and Claire Stuart)
Children of the Mist Series (connected to and follows the MacGregors):
Ravished by a Highlander (Robert MacGregor and Davina Montgomery)
Seduced by a Highlander (Tristan MacGregor and Isobel Fergusson)
Tamed by a Highlander (Mairi MacGregor, Connor Grant) – reviewed in today’s blog
Conquered by a Highlander (Colin MacGregor and Gillian Dearly)
