Next up on our A Scandalous Affair event, we have a good friend of ours, Laura Hunsaker with us today! Take it away, girl!
Imagine this: you have just been stolen from your enemy’s lands by a big, braw warrior. He tosses you onto his horse and rides off. You know not who he is, nor do you care, but the one thing you know is that you want to spend Valentine’s Day with him.
10 Reasons Why Your Valentine's Day Date Should Be a Highlander:
1. The verra long sword.
2. That brogue- He would read you some Robbie Burns *swoon*
3. The castle, because every fantasy should have a castle.
4. The kilt. . . and the mystery of what’s underneath it.
5. The magic of that first kiss
6. The intensity and passion of these warriors could be directed to the bedroom.
7. You like a broody man? These heroes invented broody.
8. He might not bring you flowers, but he’d bring you your enemy’s head on a pike.
9. His riding skills, horse riding skills, that is.
10. The fact that the only thing beneath his kilt is a wee dash of lipstick and his woman’s saliva (quote taken from a real Scotsman via twitter)
[Edited in by Annie: But wait! Some of you may know that Laura is also known as the Highland Hussy. But did you also know that she also has a thing for Fabio? Yes, that's right! Just for fun (and because Laura is SUCH a good sport, I'll leave you all with this wonderful pic of Fabio as a token of my love to you, LOL! Thanks for participating in A SCANDALOUS AFFAIR!]

Mackenzie Stewart’s in Scotland for a much-needed vacation. During the castle tour, Mackenzie becomes completely enamored with a painting of one of the previous lairds. Two gentlemen come up behind her and, begging her pardon, they kidnap her, dragging her through time.So I’d like to give a copy of the ebook Highland Destiny to a random commenter. Just comment about why you’d like a Highlander for your V Day date.
The men are sorcerers attempting to end a feud that has plagued their lands for years. Their patron has begun to dabble in the black arts, and between his irrational thirst for power, and his dark secret, the sorcerers are frightened. They believe Mackenzie can break the Stewart curse. They try to convince her to play along with their crazy scheme: marriage to the evil John Campbell.
Before Mackenzie can protest, her carriage is halted and the door thrown open. For a split-second she is arrested by the same beautiful piercing blue eyes that belonged in an oil painting.
Mackenzie then finds herself the victim of a second kidnapping!
Her new captor, however, does nothing but tempt her body and her temper. Believing her to in fact be the betrothed of his mortal enemy the Campbell, Connor originally sets out to capture his enemy’s betrothed. He never thought he would be so attracted to her that he’d want to keep her.
Just for fun: I'll give you a BONUS ENTRY if you flood this post with pictures of Fabio. Laura will be thrilled! ;P If you can find one with him in a kilt, even better!
