Isn’t Catriona MacDonald a wonderful heroine name?
I believe the name speaks of a beautiful, fiery lass with heart, spirit, and an abundance of passion.
A strong and proud heroine.
Have you met Catriona?
If not, here’s the blurb for her book…
The first book in the Highland Warriors trilogy… Three proud warriors locked in a struggle for victory. Three beguiling women united in their vow to restore peace.
The king has ordered three clans to battle to the death: the one left standing will reign over the Glen of Many Legends. James Cameron, known throughout the Highlands as “The Devil,” leads his men with ruthless determination. He knows no weakness — until a headstrong, flame-haired beauty from a rival clan tempts him to abandon his ironclad loyalties.
Catriona MacDonald’s past encounters with James have proved that ladies who play with fire can get scorched. But her brush with this devil leaves her burning to feel his touch once more, even though the fierce warrior is her sworn enemy. Now “The Devil” must fight for his family, his honor, and his very life… even as he surrenders to his desire to possess Catriona at any cost.
You’ll never find a weepy, sobbing female in a book of mine. Nor a tragic, long-suffering heroine. I prefer bold, spirited lasses like Catriona.
Duncan MacKenzie’s youngest daughter, Gelis, is another strong and high-spirited heroine I really loved writing. Gelis’s story was Seducing A Scottish Bride.
That book has my all-time favorite cover. I think it looks like a master painting and would love to have it enlarged and beautifully framed, above my fireplace.
But this is about Catriona MacDonald.
She is special to me.
And I was so pleased when Catriona caught the attention of Romantic Times Magazine.
They gave her book, Sins of a Highland Devil a wonderful review…
RT Top Pick — 4.5 Stars
“The first installment in Welfonder’s Highland Warrior’s trilogy continues a long tradition of well-written, highly emotional romances. This marvelous novel is rich in love and legend, populated by characters steeped in honor, to make for a sensual and emotional read.” —Kathe Robin, Romantic Times
What really pleased me was that RT loved Catriona so much that they contacted me, asking me to write a special article for them about strong heroines.
As I’m passionate about such heroines, I was delighted to do so.
