Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome back to VRB, the amazingly talented Terry Spear! (insert my fan girl scream here) Yes, it’s no secret that Terry is one of my all time favorites and of course I’m always beyond excited when she comes by for a visit. This week Terry will be releasing the latest in her wolf series, A Highland Werewolf Wedding and is out touring the blog world to share it with everyone. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak and I’m going to let you in on a little secret…..This book Rocks! Loved it!
Anyway, with all the Highland books that Terry Spear has written it got me thinking, what exactly is it that makes a Highlander so damn sexy? Well I asked Terry if she would give us her thoughts on that and she’s written us a great guest post about that very thing. Did I mention that she is also giving one very lucky commenter their very own copy of A Howl for a Highlander? You can’t win it if you don’t comment though!
Those Sexy Highlanders
by Terry Spear
Rhonda wanted me to write about what makes us drool over Highlanders—what makes them so damn sexy? Is it their kilt—bare chest, bare legs, going Regimental—their term for butt-naked?! Or their sexy Highland brogue? Or the stereotypical brawniness? In the Scotland way—they are totally braw.
It’s got to be all of the above—don’t you think?
And then add that paranormal element—the werewolf, and you’ve got the ultimate man feast.
Just think of it. He’s protective—carries a sword to weddings to protect his bride-to-be, wears a kilt, and you’re just dying to know what’s underneath it, hoping for a big gust of wind, and in Scotland, it can be really blustery, and then…he winks at you—knowing just where your mind has wandered.
Yep. Braw, Highland, warrior, yum.
But we haven’t even gotten to the way he talks to you, aye? That brogue is so delicious, even if you canna understand half of what he says. And when he speaks in Gaelic, he could be cursing, but you can pretend he’s sharing sweet nothings to get you in the mood…and smile.
If you’re smart, you’ll get him to remove his shirt so he doesn’t get it wet in the rain. And then you can talk him into stripping down to run as a wolf. Who says women can’t be just as wily as the Highland hunks?
Then you’ll know for sure just what a delicious treat you’re in for if the two of you decide to get to know each other better.
But wait, remember, if you’re a wolf, and he’s a wolf, there are limits to what you two can do. It all has to do with wolves mating for a lifetime. Some rules can’t be broken. And really, who would want to break them?
I have to say that as wolves, he will lose his Scottish brogue, along with his kilt. But that’s okay because he’s still totally protective. Not that you won’t use your teeth on something or someone who might want to harm either of you also.
And then it’s back to being human—he’s all hunky naked Highlander—having lost the kilt, shirt, sword, etc. And you’re kind of in the same situation. The problem when wolves have their clothes stolen, and so, what’s a girl to do?
Move in with him in his castle. Now the problem with that is that Scottish castles often have ghosts. And Cearnach’s cousin likes the ladies. Too much.
Which means? You need a protector in the flesh. If you scream, no telling who all will come to your protection. Lots of hunky Highlanders waving swords, no doubt.
A girl could sure dream.
So what do you find attractive about a Highlander??? Ready to share his big bed in an ancient castle in Scotland???
One commenter has the chance to win a copy of A Howl for a Highlander, US or Canada address only. Thanks to Rhonda and all of you at Vampire Romance Books for having me back! Hope you love Highlanders as much as I love writing about them!
