Bring on the Kilts!


Congratulations to Kathie from Texas for winning this month's contest! Thank you all for leaving comments and making me smile!  Please come back next month, Nov. 25th, when I'll be giving away Wanted: Undead or Alive and Wild About You!

Last month I wrote that I would give away a copy of Vampire Mine and Sexiest Vampire Alive, but when I checked my bookcase, I was shocked to find out I don't have a copy of Sexiest Vampire Alive!  They've all been given away.  So I asked Connor whom he would like to share the spotlight with, and his answer was his Scottish buddy, Dougal. I agreed, of course. Who would want to disappoint a handsome Scotsman in a kilt?

To the left is a photo of a lone piper in the hauntingly beautiful valley of Glencoe.  Wouldn't you love to hear Dougal play the pipes? And to the right is a photo of the ruins of Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness. (No, I didn't see Nessie! I was too busy looking at men in kilts!)

Speaking of gorgeous men in kilts, we mustn't forget Jamie Fraser from the books and television series, Outlander.  While I was in Scotland, I bought a pin for Jamie, then tried to travel back through the stones to give it to him. Obviously, it didn't work and I'm still here. To the right, you'll see Cathy Maxwell making her attempt at time travel. (That also didn't work).

I bought two scarves for Connor Buchanan.  The bright one shows off the plaid he wears in his kilt.  The one in shades of brown is the hunting or natural Buchanan tartan that he would wear when he wants to blend into the landscape.  Connor is the hero of Vampire Mine, and Dougal Kincaid is the hero of The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo.  I'm giving away a
signed copy of each book to one lucky winner.  International entries are welcome.  To enter, simply leave a comment and tell me who is your favorite Scottish hero. If you choose not to leave your email address in the comment, that's all right, but please remember to check back here in a few days in case you've won and I'm looking for you. Good luck to you all!

Some of my faves are THE CLAN MACRIEVE from Immmortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole, Jamie Fraser from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, and lastly the 'babe magnet' Connor Buchanan from Vampire Mine. XDD

Amanda Muniz said...

Connor is by far my favorite! He WAS a stubborn , cold-hearted guy until he finally met the woman who opened his eyes. I really enjoyed reading about him and eagerly waited each book to finally red his story! I must say it is my favorite book in the series and I loved how well it played out for him!!

snellmisty said...

I loved all the stories in the series. I grab them as soon as they come out. Connor has to be one of my favorites...he beats himself up so bad & thinks the others are making a mistake falling in love. But then it takes an Angel for him to realize he's not so bad he can't be loved & deserves to love someone.

Brittanie Steele said...

My favorite story is probably Robbys. The obstacles he had to overcome emotionally and physically were amazing. My second favorite is definitely Connor because of what happened with the Dragnesti family. That's a lot to overcome as well. I haven't gotten a chance to read Dougals story yet but I bet it's just as amazing as the rest. Your highlanders go through so much and it's just awesome! It shows people you can get through anything if you try hard enough. I love rereading this series! It's definitely one of my favorites!

Mindy Bartles said...

I love each of the characters on their own way. I love how Ian finally was able to grow up. I live how Conner is a big Teddy bear. I love how Howard is a bear. They each have qualities that make me love them

Joyce Cook said...

Connor was my first introduction to the highlanders. I read everything I can get my hands on.

goddessoflite said...

Conner he was everyhing smart,sexy, tough
Sheilarrodney@comcast.net

Sullivan McPig said...

I'm going for Rob Roy. Even though Liam Neeson isn't Scottish, he did a great job in the movie.

(sullivanmcpig(at)gmail(dot)com

Fluser said...

Ian McPhie is my fav. Loved the way he met his Toni, so funny and of course that he took the drug to age.
Another Scottish Hero would be William Wallace (and not only because he was played by Mel Gibson in Braveheart). He united the clans to fight the English pretty successfully till he was betrayed.

jessica maxon said...

Jamie from the outlander! jmaxon10@gmail.com

Lisa G said...

From your books, Ian wins hands down for me.

ssweaver975 said...

I hope I haven't misunderstood the post, since the comments I am reading appear fictional based... Oh well, here goes! =)

There are many in Scottish history that Have had a huge impact in our world events, but I have to say that the one that immediately comes to mind would be Thomas Erskine(1750-1823).

As the man who created the ACLU (American Civil Liverties Union), Erskine came from the town of Linlithgow in Scotland. Free men and woman everywhere should be grateful to this tenacious, hard-working lawyer. It was through him that personal liberties were given as a RIGHT.

Because of this, Thomas Erskine would be my selection!

Thank you for your contributions to the literary community Kerrelyn! I truly enjoy your work!

Warmly,
Shelbie Knight =)

Lora Spencer said...

<3 Dougal! And I've a weakness for tattoos as well, so he is a double dose of handsome! And my favorite Scotsman is the one I can marry!

Karen Lindsey said...

I don't have a favorite, I love all of them💖

Victoria Beyette said...

I love Connor, But I also love other highlander men lol. Love reading highlander novels. I have also seen and heard that lonely highlander playing his pipes while I was in Scotland recently, when I was on my day trip to Glencoe, Loch Ness and the Highlands. Love Scotland so much!!

Barbara E. said...

My favorite Scottish hero is Jamie Fraser from Outlander, but really, I love them all. Give me a hot Scot in a kilt and I'm happy.

Maria Fontes said...

I've lived in Scotland so I can't help but love anything that has to do with, including men (fictional or otherwise). And for me, it's definitely Connor.

bookgeek30@gmail.com

Karen H said...

I'm another person who cannot pick just one! I just love a man in a kilt with a brogue (and if he has long hair, it's even better). My favorite is the hero of the book I'm reading right now, that is, until I pick up the next book. Thanks for all of your hunky heroes that I have enjoyed. (I'm not typing my address directly as I'm still getting spam from the last BlogSpot post I made but I'm way too forgetful to remember to check back unfortunately.) Thanks.

Just wanted to thank you for sharing your trip to Scotland - beautiful! Long, long time (non-creeper!) fan of yours Sherrilyn since I picked up your first book and fell in love with all of your characters.

Sigh. All of them. Something just so sexy about the way they talk and of course the kilt ;)

Thank you for the chance to have one of your Scotsmen willing to be mailed Lol

clynsg said...

Definitely a difficult decision, but would have to go with Ian, with Jamie Fraser virtually in a tie with him.

Jeanette J said...

I'll have to go with Connor although I do love any man in a kilt.

Heather Melvin said...

My name is Heather Melvin. Since I'm Asian and I love Scotland and Scottish accents, I absolutely LOVE Dougal! But I also love Connor because he was the first vamp I encountered in the series. Thank you for writing this series an having this! My email is melvinhd@mx.lakeforest.edu

ame eggers said...

Jamie Fraser...since Outlander was first released.....I'd give up flushing toilets and running water for him....LOL (ame96930@aol.com)

Geraldine Wentzell said...

My favorite is Ian!

Susan Newman said...

Dougal is one sexy vampire...loved him!!!

pemberly@bellsouth.net

Lupa Padmae said...

Connor and Dougal I like a lot. I would love to have these added to my collection

Debby said...

Connor would be my favorite. He i great!
debby236 at gmail dot com

Kate Glowe said...

I love both of these books! Love all of your books!!! I'm always anxiously waiting for your next release :-) hope I win one of your signed copies!!!! How cool!!

dlynnpen said...

Ok...Conner ofcourse.Now let me also give it up for the McClouds.Sorry,but you got to admit.AWESOME and our new Connor(you guy)OH YES...AWESOME!!!

Llama said...

John Barrowman. He isn't fiction but he is Scottish, gorgeous, funny, kind, heroic and just generally awesome. If I had to pick a fiction one it would probably be Jamie because we see his whole life and the man he becomes. Tortured but always honorable.

Ashley Martinez said...

That's a hard question. I'll go with Connor too :) thank you for the chance!
puffangel87@yahoo.com

Kimi said...

From this series I'd have to go with either Connor or Ian...yum.

Michaela Düxmann said...

Kitsune said...

I love all of the Scottish Heros! Although if I must pick just one, I guess I'll go with one that started me on this delicious trip... Angus MacKay!

Yolaine Clark said...

I love the Macrieve Clan and Duncan.

Alyssa Nabors said...

Your books are amazing! Hard to pick a favorite. I adore Scottish men and vampires! Just awesome!

Cherri said...

Hi Kerrelyn! I cannot tell you how much I love reading your books and to have to pick a fave?? That is hard! I think Roman is still one of my faves and Connor. Of course, Howard rocks too! <3 cboitson@shaw.ca

Dreams said...

This is impossible to pick just one! But if I had to pick just one, I'd have to say Ian. I picked up his book right around the beginning of my Scottish phase, so he's my first favorite.

Thank you for holding another great giveaway!

onceuponadreambooks(at)Hotmail.com

Nancy said...

Hey Kerrelyn! You are indeed a cruel woman asking us to choose. I love them all. However if you are going to force the issue, I would have to go with Ian McPhee. He was changed so young and the women wouldn't take him seriously. A few doses of the the stay awake drug and he became the resident hottie. Now if you were asking about the shape shifters I definitely would have to go with Howard....gggrrrrr!
Thanks for the chance to win. Nancy Miller, Navigatorwv@gmail.com

samantha scicluna said...

Ok I honestly love all your books and my favourite is the Sexiest Vampire Alive (as it's the first one I've ever read of yours), but since Gregory Holstein is not a highlander, I have to say its Angus McKay because I simply LOVE the story between him and Emma in Be Still My Vampire Heart!!
samanthascicluna@yahoo.com

Dania Merrifield said...

Love all kiltsmen....don't make me chose

orelukjp0 said...

In real life it would have to be Rob Roy MacGregor (Railbeart Ruadh MacGriogair)

Brenda Rumsey said...

My favorite would be Conner, but it is so hard to choose as I enjoy them all. Thanks for the chance to win. grandmabkr at yahoo dot com

RogueRaina said...

Well, if I have to choose... Angus MacKay.

NoraA said...

Actually all the boys in your series rock. There's no way to choose just one. They all rock the tartan like champs.

lagina reese said...

All the men are sexy hot in your books. I love cuddling up with them.

God, I love all of the Highlanders I read about. Jamie Fraser is at the top then there is Anus Mackray and every kilted Highlander. Thanks for the chance.

Davina McCormick said...

This is such a freaky coincidence, or fate, whatever you call it. My fave Scots happen to be Connor, with Dougal coming very close second. I'm not saying this just to suck up, I really do love them. So much that once I spent an entire month's salary importing a Buchanan kilt, which I still have but barely fit anymore as I'm carrying a little Dougie (still trying out names, but Dougal is very high on my list!).

Tatiana L. said...

I grew up with the Highlander movies. Ao, my favorite Scot was Duncan McClaud.

Lisa Richards/alterlisa said...

Definitely Connor though it's really hard to pick just one

Janet M said...

Connor... I laughed, laughed, laughed during that book. Loved it! I have thoroughly enjoyed all your books and hope you continue the series.

mark said...

I always liked Ian McPhie. Granted I am a guy, so I like them for other reasons than most.

mark said...

But Angus was always a badass too!

Sandy said...

Jamie from Outlander!!

MsAwesome said...

So many to chose from! Since I'm reading Rules for a Proper Governess by Jennifer Ashley I'm going to go with the hero Sinclair McBride although all of her Scots are a sexy riot and then some ;)
