Laura Hunsaker Blog Spot & Giveaway!


Welcoming....

Laura Hunsaker
Today Laurie, has agreed to come and take over the blog for a little bit. But first I wanted to tell everyone about Laurie. I met Laurie through Goodreads before her first book – Highland Destiny – was released. We would muck about laughing at our kids and how ridiculous they could be. I discovered just how beautiful a person she really was.  I held off reading Highland Destiny out of fear. What if I didn’t like it? Thankfully after growing a pair, I manned up and read it. It was awesome – and I maintained a friend LOL! Laurie and I now Skype when we have time and I love that I knew her before her new found fame hit. I hope that you all enjoy what Laurie has to say and if you haven’t already, go out there and buy Highland Destiny, or better yet – enter our giveaway at the bottom to win a copy!

CLICK HERE TO READ MY REVIEW OF HIGHLAND DESTINY


Prologue
She looked across the room of dancing guests and swirling colors, and stared into the cold, hard eyes of her betrothed. This was undoubtedly the most terrifying moment of her entire life. Her death was imminent, and unstoppable. And she knew. She knew that it would not be enough. Her death would not stop the pain and destruction that she’d so desperately fought to end. Her hopes had crashed the instant she had stared into those flat eyes. There was no hate, or anger, like she’d been expecting; they were just empty. And it scared her. But she refused to let the fear weaken her; she would meet her death with a stoicism she’d never dreamed she possessed. Before she could stop them, her fingers fluttered to her churning stomach betraying her nerves, but she straightened her spine and dropped her hand. With a careful expression of boredom, she walked forward, and sat down next to the man she’d agreed to marry, the man who would kill her by midnight. And she prayed without much hope that her death would be enough.

Thanks for having me here, guys!  For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Laura Hunsaker, and I write Scottish Time Travel Romances.  My first book Highland Destiny is about a 21st century girl from Vegas, being dragged through time to Scotland, in the year 1792.  Big culture shock, right?  Well, I’ve been hard at work for months working on my next in the series when these two voices wouldn’t stop chatting in my head.  It got annoying.  Finally I sat down and wrote out a few of the things they said.  Yeah, those few things became about 10,000 words.  I’m almost to 20,000 words now and the end is in sight.  Hooray!  But I wanted to tell you a bit about my novella Highland Games.

Piper Grant is a California surfer girl.  She surfs all the time, barely holding down a part-time job at the library because the only time she ever feels at peace is on the waves.  Her bff is getting ready to go to Scotland for vacation, when her mom gets sick.  So Piper takes her place, and heads off to the Highland Games.  But Piper never in a million years expects to meet a real Highland Warrior.  She figured it would be more re-enactors than anything authentic.  But then she meets Malcolm.  He says he’s from the 1700s and wants her to go back with him.  Piper isn’t buying his brand of crazy, so Colm takes her with him.  This novella is a bit lighter than Highland Destiny and it’s a wee bit more fun.  Colm is such a cheeky guy it’s hard not to like him, and Piper may not actually be a 21st century lass after all.  You’ll have to read to find out whether she’ll stay with him, or go back to her old life of sun sand and surf.

Highland Games, expected out early 2012

A surfer chick and a Highlander. Sounds like a hoot, I'm getting a visual of her teaching him to surf on a long board in a kilt and broadsword. *snort* This is one I'll have to check out.
