>I first met Julianne online in 2003 (SEVEN years!) and my love of her work began with To Marry A Duke I’ve been a fan of hers ever since that book. Her descriptions are so rich and sumptuous. She’s impressed me not only with her work but with her kindness and gentle spirit as well. Not only that, but she has a deliciously wicked sense of humor. Check out her video gallery to see what I mean, in particular the Mistress Diaries video! LOL Please welcome Julianne to today’s Pleasure Me With Romance guest post!

Greetings everyone, and a special thank you to Monica for inviting me to blog with her today! (I read Pleasure Me, and it was indeed a pleasure from start to finish. But I digress…)
So let’s talk Highlanders. I’ve been writing about London dukes and earls for a while, so it was a wonderful change of pace to write about a very different sort of man. Let’s call him the “outdoorsy” type.
The heroes in these books are sword-wielding warriors with a dash of savagery in them. They’re strong and robust, and they don’t always comb their hair. They move about in a world of rebellion, physical adventure, and rugged terrain. Those particular elements provided me with a splendid opportunity to create a very intense conflict between the hero and heroine, which was different from what I was accustomed to writing about in the past, for I’d never created a situation where the heroine was actually afraid of the hero – and she has good reason to be. In all three of these books, the tale begins with the hero overtaking the heroine some way.
From bestselling author Julianne MacLean comes the fiery saga of three Highland warriors sworn to protect their homeland—and fight for the women they love…
In the first book, he kidnaps her for revenge. In the second book, he invades and conquers her castle and claims her as his wife. In the third book… Well, that’s complicated, and it doesn’t come out until October, so I won’t go into that yet.
This fierce conflict between the characters had a wonderful silver lining, however, for I was able to create some very courageous women – because let’s face it, getting kidnapped by a savage-looking warrior (who is known as the Butcher of the Highlands) isn’t your garden-variety walk in the park.
I had a great time writing these books, and I was sorry when the third book came to an end and I had to send it off to my editor. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them, but in the meantime, let’s give away a book – THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF SCOTTISH ROMANCE!
