Third Annual Highlander Giveaway Hop

Celebrating Highlanders From Past, Present & the Future!

This is my first year participating in the Highlander Hop.  I have never been to Scotland or met a Highlander, but hopefully that will change in the future.  I enjoy reading anything (almost) about Scotland, and that includes a Highlander or two!  

I discovered a new author a few months ago, Suzan Tisdale, and I am not sure how I missed her.  This lady is a fantastic writer!  I have fell in love with every Highlander in her books that I have read so far, and I am sure you will too.  My giveaway is for Amazon Kindle eBooks of ‘The Clan MacDougall Series Bundle’ & ‘McKenna’s Honor’.  There are 4 books in The Clan MacDougall series.  The bundle includes the first three books & McKenna’s Honor is the fourth book in the series.  
The Clan MacDougall, Bundle (Books 1-3) by Suzan Tisdale

Laiden’s Daughter (Book 1)
She believes men are not honorable nor are they kind-until she meets one that changes her heart forever.
Betrayed by lies told before her birth, Aishlinn is raised by a harsh and cruel stepfather. Her life is forever changed one horrifying night when she is forced to flee England for the safety of the Scottish Highlands. Rescued by a fierce band of highland warriors, Aishlinn soon learns that honorable men do exist. She finds a strength she never knew she possessed and it will be tested to the limits when she is forced to make a heart-wrenching decision…allow the English to kill those she loves, or surrender for the crime she committed.

She is everything he never knew he wanted in a woman….

As a fierce highland warrior, Duncan McEwan has survived numerous battles, bed countless women, and survived a horrific storm at sea. He has scaled mountains and even survived hand-to-claw battle with a cat-o’mountain. But none of that could have prepared him for how his life forever changed one fateful spring day when he rescued a lass from a freezing stream. He will do anything to keep her as his own and will risk everything to keep her out of the hands of the English. 

Findley’s Lass (Book 2)
She had won his heart without trying… and he can only pray for the chance to give her his.

When Findley McKenna returns after his battle with the English to offer Maggy Boyle a home amongst his clan, he finds only death and destruction instead of the young widow who has stolen his heart. The only thing left of her home is the burned out hut and decaying bodies of the auld people Maggy has taken care of for the past three years. With only a prayer, his Highlander heart, and a bit of bloodied plaid to cling to, Findley will crawl through hell if he must, in order to find Maggy and her sons and avenge the massacre before him. She had won his heart without trying, and he can only pray for the chance to give her his.

How can she place her trust or her heart in the hands of a man she barely knows and maintain her freedom and keep her secrets hidden?

Maggy has secrets, and her own hell to crawl through, before she can give her trust or heart to any man. Fearful that the uncle of her late husband will force her into a marriage with another cold and vindictive man, she goes into hiding to keep her true identity secret and her adopted sons together. After her home is destroyed and her young son kidnapped, those secrets begin to unravel, one agonizing thread at a time. How can she place her trust or her heart in the hands of a man she barely knows and still maintain her freedom and keep her secrets hidden? Findley McKenna is her last vestige of hope at keeping both. 

Wee William’s Woman (Book 3)They call him Wee William. Though he stands nearly seven feet tall, with arms and legs the size of tree trunks and hands as big as buckets, there is nothing wee about him. His scowl alone is enough to make most men’s bones rattle with fear. And women, rather than swooning, tend to run in the opposite direction.

The giant Highlander is a self-proclaimed bachelor who has sworn for years that there isn’t a woman in all of Scotland worth shaving his beard for, and for good reason. Years ago, after a bonny young lass broke his heart and left his dignity in shreds, he swore never again to put it in such peril. As a testament to his sincerity, he vowed never again to shave his beard.

Then he met her. In a single heartbeat, Wee William was lost. Forever lost to a brown-haired beauty with gray-blue eyes brimming with tears — a woman in need.
McKenna’s Honor, Clan MacDougall (Book 4) by Suzan Tisdale

Dark times have fallen upon Scotland.
King David II is a prisoner of England. Angus McKenna, revered chief of Clan MacDougall, and his son-in-law Duncan McEwan sit in a dungeon in Edinburgh, accused of crimes against their king and country. Their wives are missing.
Can devotion, honor and fealty light a candle in the darkness?
Invoking the Bond of the Seven Clans, Nial McKee, son-in-law to Angus McKenna sets out to discover the truth behind the charges. While he enlists the help of his good friends Caelen McDunnah and Rowan Graham, his lovely wife Bree appeals to friends of her own for a much different kind of assistance.
But time is running out for Angus and Duncan. Friendship and love of family alone might not be enough to save McKenna’s Honor.

Banned Book Week Giveaway Hop- $15 Amazon Book or Ebook!

Banned Book Week Giveaway 
‘Banned Book Week Giveaway Hop’ is hosted by
I Am A Reader & BookHounds

This is the first time I have participated in ‘Banned Book Week’, and it amazes me some of the books that have actually been banned from public school libraries.  I took a look at the list and I don’t understand, because there were a few books that I read in junior high school that seemed just fine to me.

That is the wonderful thing about living in the United States, where we have freedom of speech and freedom of speech.  With that being said I also understand that sometimes it may be taken to far.  What is appropriate to one person may not be suitable for another.  I am glad that I am able to choose and not have someone else do that for me.

As parents we have to judge what is appropriate for our children until they are old enough to do it themselves.  So sometimes the lines may become a little blurred, but we do the best we can.

I believe that everyone’s opinions should be heard, they are just not for everyone’s ears.  Banned Book Week is an annual event to celebrate the ‘freedom to read’.
