Paula Quinn and Sue-Ellen Welfonder together on …

The Great Scotts Blog Tour!


Edmund MacGregor will do anything to save Scotland from English rule-even kidnap Lady Amelia Bell for ransom. As the daughter of a duke and the chancellor’s betrothed, she’s the perfect pawn in this game. But from the moment he first lays eyes on his spirited captive, he can’t resist stealing a kiss.

Lady Amelia’s duty is to marry well, but that hasn’t stopped her from fantasizing about true love. So when a sexy Scot appears in her home, she’s beguiled. When he kidnaps her, she’s furious. Yet as Edmund introduces her to a world of passion beyond her wildest dreams, can she leave her family behind for this handsome Highlander? And will Edmund risk the only true home he’s ever known to capture the heart of this lovely lass?

As one of the bastards born to the Stirling court, Sorley the Hawk has never known his mother or father. It’s a burning quest he has devoted himself to uncovering at any cost. But as a roguish warrior who serves at the pleasure of the King, his prowess-both on the battlefield and in his bedchamber-is legendary. So when a flame-haired Highland lass sneaks into his quarters with a tantalizing proposition, he can’t resist taking her up on her offer .

Lady Mirabelle MacLaren will do anything to keep from marrying her odious suitor, even sully her own good name. And who better to despoil her than his sworn enemy, the one they call “Hawk?” As they set about the enjoyable task of ruining her reputation, Hawk and Mirabelle soon learn that rebellion never tasted so sweet.

  1. It’s interesting to note that in bygone days being born a bastard was a “big deal.” Today it is much more accepted or ignored entirely…it is what you make of yourself that is important, not your antecedents. It is nice, however, that once in awhile in a historical romance the same is true for a person born a bastard. I really love your stories, Paula and Sue-Ellen!

    1. Welcome, Jdh! One of my favorite people to write about was William the Conqueror (in my earlier books) He was a bastard and was called William the Bastard. He didn’t let it define him though. You’re right, it’s what you make of yourself that’s important!

    2. So true, JDH. As Paula commented, many bastards were well treated and recognized in medieval times. Attitude depended on rank and circumstance. Robert the Bruce had bastard children and saw that they were very well cared for. So did many other Scottish nobles. I’ve written them before, such as in my MacKenzie series, Kenneth’s tale, UNTIL THE KNIGHT COMES. I believe everyone on the planet should only be measured by the goodness of their soul, what’s in their heart. Nothing else should matter. Nothing. I enjoy weaving that theme into my work.

  2. Hi Melanie, Connie & Leah! Thanks so much for hosting the Great Scots Tour! It’s a pleasure to be here! Looking forward to a fun day! And thank you so much for the amazing review of The Seduction of Miss Amelia Bell! It made my day! 🙂 I’m hoping Sue-Ellen can be here today. She’s having work done on her home and hasn’t had any internet connection, but if not, I know she will look in as soon as she gets back!

    1. Hey Paula 😉

      It’s awesome to have you both be here today. I love your books so much and this one especially. I’m looking forward to this series. If any books that are coming up are half as fun and entertaining, I’ll be a happy camper 🙂

      I noticed Sue-Ellen talk about it on FB, so we’re all cool here. Life gets in the way of our fun sometimes and all we can do is roll with it, right? We’ll be here whenever she is free & ready 🙂



      1. lol
        Thanks. So glad to hear she’s with us 🙂
        It’s one of those WOW moments every time I speak to you, the author, as years & years ago I’d finish reading a book and would have no way of telling an author how much I treasured every word they painstakingly wrote just for ME, and now I can talk to you and Sue-Ellen and it makes me feel so good that you all know that your hard work paid off, hit my brain and my heart and that you’re appreciated….

        Keep on doing whatever you are…I’ll be here to sponge it all in 🙂


      2. Mel, I remember reading (pre internet days) and thinking, Oh, if I could just tell the author how much I loved their book! lol Now I can! And yes, I do just write for you! 🙂

      3. I made it, Mel! Late in the day, sadly – I’ve been catching up on the tour stops I missed – but here now. Woot! Yes, soemtimes the ‘real world’ intrudes and can be ‘bigger than we are,’ giving us little wriggle room. Thanks so much for hosting us today and for the posting Leah’s fabulous review of TO LOVE A HIGHLANDER! Your review of Paula’s book was wonderful, too. I’m just finishing it now and loving every page. Fantastic book, as she always writes. Love it so much. (I want Grendel :))

      4. Awww, Mel, you are so kind! Like, Paula, I, too, remember pre-Internet reading days. Authors may as well have been as distant as the moon. As ‘real’ as green cheese! I did once write to one, my favorite author, the late Becky Lee Weyrich. She was the Time Reavel Queen in the 80s. I loved her books. We became friends and it was Becky who encouraged me to write. Otherwise, there was this huge gaping void between the books/authors and readers. I’ll again agree with Paula: it is for you, the readers that we write. Absolutely. I love the contact with my readers and especially enjoy meeting them in person, for quality time get-togethers whenever possible. I have many dear, dear friends who I have met because they first read and enjoyed my books. Such as Leah. (waving at her)

      5. Oh, dear, that should be Time Travel Queen. Sigh… George, my keyboard, sometimes sticks,,,

    2. Ha ha ha… I am here, Paula. A bit battle-weary, but here. Thanks again so much for covering for me everywhere. You’re the best! (((HUGS)))

    1. Wow, JeanMP, that is soooo great to hear!!! Thank you so much!!! I’ll be smiling all day. 🙂

    1. Great to see you in here, Cathy! This is a wonderful site, isn’t it? I love visiting here. 🙂
