Long, long ago, in the time before time, seven sisters were called from the far reaches of the realm. Each brought unique talents, but had one common gift; the ability to weave ageless tales of love and courage. An evil witch coveted their gifts and locked them in a tower, silencing their voices upon threat of death. But the Highlands are enchanted, and magic will not countenance seven pure hearts such as theirs to be lost.
With no one else to hear them, they sang their stories to each other. Fate blew a braw Highland wind to their prison, and the sweet, high timbre of the sisters’ voices enthralled it. The wind gathered close their silver words as it raced past each day, and carried their love and goodness throughout the world…then across the ages.
Today, their words live on in the Guardians of the Cridhe, seven sisters who have sworn to preserve those pure and musical hearts so long as they live. It is said these seven descend from those ancient female bards. Only their words can bear witness to that truth…
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of this amazing group of ladies. We have bonded over the past few months while creating our stories for our first release. So I’m counting down the days and hours until Monday, November 17th, when Scrolls of Cridhe, Volume 1, Highland Winds goes live!
Colaborating on a project like this means those involved must have mutual respect and an appreciation for one another as people as as creative writers. And we have that in spades.
In chatting with my fellow Guardian sisters, I discovered just how fascinating they are. Love these ladies and I know you will too.The Highlander’s Improper Wife. I am so fortunate to call her fellow Guardian sister. Tarah’s contribution to Highland winds is Lord Grayson’s Bride.
Here’s Tarah’s answers. 🙂
Favorite books: A Tale of Two Cities, Interview with a Vampire, The Green Mile.
Two favorite authors: Charles DIckens (Many second favorites.) Stephen King and Emily Bronte.
What inspires me most to write Scottish romances: The Scots are rebels. They break all the rules and win. Gotta love that.
I do love that, Tarah!! And I too am a huge Stephen King fan. 🙂Rowan’s Lady. Suzan’s contribution to Highland Winds is Stealing Moirra’s Heart.
Here’s Suzan’s answers to my questions. 🙂
My two favorite authors? Julie Garwood and the GOC sisters. (I’m copying Ceci on that one!).
The thing that inspires me most to write Scottish Historicals? I get to write about strong men and women who fought for freedom, for each other, and for the less fortunate. I get to create perfectly imperfect heroes and heroines and help them discover who they truly are inside. And, I get to kill off bad guys, in all sorts of fun and creative ways.
WOW, love that Suzan. I too love strong heroines. And the best way to kill someone is on paper. 😉
Tune in tomorrow when I will feature Kathryn Lynn Davis and Sue-Ellen Wellfonder. 🙂
