Sue-Ellen Welfonder | Author-Reader Match: KNIGHT IN HER BED
January 25, 2023
Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match” where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present Sue-Ellen Welfonder!
Hello, Everyone! (said with a smile and a wave) Whenever I’m asked what I write, I’m tempted to say escapist fiction. Real life can be hard and so my aim is to give readers a story that sweeps them into another time and place, an escape from their cares. The more standard answer is that I’m mostly known for writing Scottish medieval romance such as KNIGHT IN HER BED, a tale of sizzling passion, danger, and forbidden love between a captured laird and a lady who must choose between clan loyalty and her heart.
Let’s see... with pen in hand, I’m a USA Today bestselling author of twenty-plus years, writing in multi-genres from historical romance to contemporary and paranormal romance. Some readers may know me as Allie Mackay, a pen name used for Scottish time-travel and ghost romances. Setting the pen aside, I’m a former airline stewardess, now happy homebody. I believe that you can never have enough books, and that yoga is a cure for everything. Once a dedicated night owl, I trained myself to be a lark and now cycle out every morning to see the sunrise. My greatest passions are animals, nature, and anything old and quirky. I live on Florida’s southwest coast with my husband and my muse, Snuggles the writer cat.
What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:
My dream reader is someone who loves...
Hot Highlander heroes, daring heroines, and highly sensual stories
Heart, humor, and soul
Legend, lore, and magic
Devorgilla, a meddlesome crone who wears red-plaid shoelaces and will turn me into a toad if I don’t mention her.
Happy endings that squeeze your heart
What to expect if we’re compatible:
Stories that make you feel as if you are there
You’ll come to believe that Devorgilla is real (she is)
My cat, Snuggles, will steal your heart and you’ll watch my FB Author Page for his appearances
If you read enough of my books, you’ll learn my secrets ... such as loving rain, cold, and mist, being allergic to Daylight Saving Time, that I love trees, wish that I could rescue every needy animal on the planet, and really do believe in magic
An occasional nod to the unforgettable Alan Rickman (yes, I still miss him)
A warrior in chains, A lady in charge, And a seduction too hot to handle…
Laird Donall MacLean never expects to land in a dungeon when he makes a goodwill journey to the ancestral holding of his clan’s sworn enemies, the MacInnesses. The two Highland families might bear the scars of a centuries-old feud, but they’ve enjoyed a truce in recent years and so when a MacInnes woman is murdered, he gladly offers help – only to find himself accused of the deed. Though he knows he is innocent, his beautiful captor doubts his every word, even as she ignites a blazing passion he can’t resist.
Lady Isolde MacInnes understands why her clan wants vengeance. As chieftain, she’s heard all the arguments meant to prove her sister was killed by MacLeans. So when the darkly handsome MacLean laird falls into her hands, why does she ignore her council’s advice to quickly execute him, and embark instead on a shocking peace plan of her own - one that involves sweet, decadent seduction and even seems to work – until a new and deadly danger surfaces, forcing Isolde to choose between clan loyalty and her heart.
