Interview and Giveaway: Victoria Roberts – X Marks the Scot

Today I welcome Victoria Roberts to my blog for an interview J And there is also a giveaway at the end.

1. Instead of the usual introduction tell me 3 silly things about yourself 🙂
First, thanks so much for having me here today.
Three silly things. Mmm… Let me see. I don’t know about silly, but I can tell you about dumb stuff that I’ve done. On my 21st birthday, I walked out of the restroom with my dress caught in the back of my pantyhose. Yep, I’m still thanking my sister for pulling me out of that one! I rode my husband’s motorcycle on a drag strip, reached 80 mph and realized this was probably the dumbest thing I’d ever done. And lastly, my Mom and I had a food fight with Boston Creme pie. Ah, great fun. 

2. Could you tell me about your new book X Marks the Scot?
This story is about Declan MacGregor (Laird Ciaran MacGregor’s bad boy brother from Temptation in a Kilt) and Lady Liadain Campbell (the bloody Campbell’s sister from Temptation in a Kilt.) I think the back cover blurb says it best.

He was a Highland Rogue—Wicked with a Bow and Just as Wicked with the Ladies.
Declan MacGregor hadn’t a care in the world beyond finding a soft bed and a willing woman…until he had to escort Lady Liadain Campbell to the English court. The woman needles him at every turn, but he can’t just abandon her to that vipers’ nest without protection.

She Never Asked for a Bodyguard…
Liadain wasn’t thrilled to be left in the care of her clan’s archrival. It was as if the man never had a lady tell him no before! And yet as whispers of treason swirl through the court and the threat of danger grows even sharper, her bitter enemy soon becomes the only one she can trust…
3.  Liadan and Declan’s clan used to be rivals. Was it fun to write a enemies to lovers book?
Oh, most definitely. Declan and Liadain’s sparring matches made it so much fun. And since Declan is definitely the biggest bad boy of the series and everything that escaped his mouth was basically a sarcastic remark anyway, sparks flew, and tempers definitely flared.
4. Who would your perfect Highlander be?
Gerard Butler. Who else?

5. When I read book 1 I wished for Declan to get a book and so he did. But now I wonder. Who is the hero in book 3?
Alexander MacDonell (Rosalia’s cousin from Glengarry in Temptation in a Kilt.) Alexander’s story will be released in September 2013.

6. Do you have any other writing plans if not counting To Wed a Wicked Highlander, book 3?
I’m currently working on a new series about a family of English spies. There is still a heavily based Scottish theme, no worries.

Thanks so much for having me today.
