>I’ve known Donna Grant since my early days of ePublishing. We both came “up the ranks” if you will at the same time. She’s a wonderful writer, and when it comes to winning the hearts of readers today, she’s doing it with immortal Scottish heroes! I’m so glad she was able to join us and share her love for romance, but more importantly, I’m delighted to call her a friend. Please welcome Donna for today’s Pleasure Me With Romance guest post.

First, thank you to the lovely Monica for inviting me to blog with her. Monica and I met many years ago when we were writing for the same epublisher, and we instantly clicked. She’s not only a good friend, but a very talented author who is an auto buy for me. She never disappoints.
There’s always been something so alluring about historical romances. When I first began reading romances at the age of 12 (yes, my mother knew. I read hers. Lol) they were mostly historicals.
It got to the point where that’s the genre I preferred. And for years that was all I read. I’ve always loved being transported to another era where society could – and did – dictate what a person could and couldn’t do.
But it was also the clothes and the period itself. I read anything from ancient up until the early 1900s. And enjoyed them all.
Medieval, however, became my love. Not that I don’t enjoy Regency or Victorian. There’s so many out there and I adore the heck out of them. But for me, it was always Medieval.
So it was no stretch of the mind when I began to write my books were all set in the medieval time. I loved the swords, the castles, the gowns, and…well, everything. I did set several books in England, but it wasn’t long before I found another love.
I’ve always been drawn to that land and the rugged Highlanders who make it their home. When I first thought up my Dark Sword series, there was no doubt in my mind it was going to be set in Scotland, and my heroes Highlanders. What better way to have a hero then men who are known for their bravery, manliness, and stubbornness?
A HEART IN CHAINS…
A PASSION UNBOUND…

Since I also love to incorporate paranormal aspects in my books, I wanted my heroes to be immortal. And my heroines to hold magic as Druids.
Scotland has long said to hold magic. Myths and legends of all kinds have sprung from the land where Druids once walked. Some places are a perfect lure for magic and historical settings.
For me, that is Scotland.
My love is still historical romance, and most likely always will be. I’ve expanded some, however. I read a lot of contemporary paranormal as well. But when I’m at the bookstore and I’m looking at all the books, I’m drawn first and foremost to the glorious historical novels.
Why do you love historical romance, and who are some of your favorite authors?
