Come now, ladies, do tell me you're not serious about this...Highlanders? Upon my word, I've been surfing the net and blogging with Sophie, and I cannot believe the utter adoration for these...beastly men. The sheer want, desire, and heaving bosoms for these fellows makes a full blooded--titled-- English gentleman rather morose. I ask you, what of the suave, rakish ENGLISH aristocrat? What of him? Is there no longer any bosoms heaving, and breathless flutterings for him? What is the allure of a Highland Hunk? Is it the mystery beneath the kilt?

I am wounded--deeply, for I acutally caught Sophie not only writing a book about a Highlander, but READING one as well. I vow, I had to run straight for Amanda and Kristi's arms! Of course, they welcomed me!

Highlanders! Pish Posh.

So, in retribution against Sophie's heartwrenching betrayal, I've stolen a signed copy of A Highlander Christmas, and am giving it away to a lucky commentor, who tells me just exactly how they like their Higlanders.

OH, by the by, Charlotte has yet to pick winners from the Winter's Desire release. She will be by Monday to announce the winners, and so will I.
Adieu, Mon Petite Anges!

oh my, how I like my highlander. I really love those rough around the egdes tough highlander with a soft heart for his lady love and those he cares about and no to mention a great sense of humor!

High, wide and handsome. With the kilt, or without the kilt : )

Moody, broody, tender-tough, gallant, possessive, passionate.

Highlander, meet me in the heather. Bring your Scottish burr, and I'll bring the shortbread : )

Ooooh, these are good! You know, I've never been one for reading those Highlander books because parents are from Scotland and it's just you know...average. But I did get my hands on a Highlander books, and I think I might be a convert!

My gruff Highlander knows how to treat a woman. I picture him looking like Eric Bana as Hector in "Troy." He's all sinew and sleek.

Patti said...

Highlanders *sigh*. Aside from the kilts and accent, I like my highlanders rugged, strong, and self-confident, with a clear sense of honesty and integrity. (that's not toooo much to ask, is it?)

Booklover1335 said...

Ah... Highlanders is right :) I think it is the ruggedness of the land that translates to it's heroes. And heroes they are. My highland hero stands up for what he believes in despite the odds. He's a tall brawny lad with longish hair, a highland lilt and whispers sweet nothings in my ear in his beloved brogue...definitely in gaelic. And while I don't understand a word, I understand his meaning because he makes sure I know it is a term of endearment.

He's strong and alpha, most definitely wears a kilt because really there is nothing sexier than a man who can wear a skirt and look even more masculine for doing so. Not to mention he knows how to wield his sword :)

However if Lord CM would like to persuade me to change my mind to the benefits of a rake I am more than willing to comply :)

Whew! HEloooooo Highlander hotties!

I think my highlander would have to be a little like Gerard Butler. I'm definetly having a huge crush on him right now!

Lord Craven Moore... There is just as much to a highlander as there is to an English gentleman to want!!
I mean... you are very delicious and love to pour your heart and soul into loving a woman... So does a highlander. Where you might have more finesse, they would be more rugged and us woman like our men in all shapes, sizes and hell... we just love our men!
But if you would like for me to show you just how much we like our men **evil grin** just come by my place!
Breeches = Kilts
Fierce = Powerful
Loving = Loving
Sexy rugged = Sexy refined
Both yummy and delicious...

In the raw. ;)

flchen, well said!

So base and to the point, as it were...

Poor Lord CM is so utterly wounded when we must embark on experimental trysts--for the sake of our writing, of course.

Still, he cannot deny that he enjoys the unmitigated coddling her receives in the aftermath.

Poor baby, indeed! I think he rather welcomes the challenge now and again to reclaim his what he knows is already his without question.

Okay, I'm a day late, and I'm soo sorry I missed this. Scottish men are my favorite of ALL TIME!

Highlanders--or Scottish men in general-- have a fierce loyalty that is hard to find anywhere else. Once they commit to you, you are theirs and they will protect you till death.

I love the accent, of course, but also the rough edges. I don't like my men refined. I will take a scarred man over a refined one every time. Not saying refined can't be sexy, but nothing is as sexy as a man with calloused hands. *beg*
