Maeve Greyson | The Risks of Research
March 3, 2016
Hey all! Iâ€™m happy to be here at Fresh Fiction. Iâ€™m still celebrating my newest
release, MY TEMPTING
HIGHLANDER. Itâ€™s the third book in my Highland Hearts series,
Mairi Sinclair and Ronan Sutherlandâ€™s story. If youâ€™ve been following the
exploits of the time-traveling Sinclair family, you know that Mairiâ€™s one of the
last two Sinclair sisters still residing in the twenty-first century. Sheâ€™s also
determined to stay in that century but matchmaking Granny and cursed
but wolfishly sexy (as in shifter type hotness) Highland Chieftain Ronan decide
Even when writing romances with such fantastical elements as time-travel, magic,
and shape-shifting, research has to be done to make sure the story is just
right. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m so thankful for the internet and online writer groups
these days. â€śSensitiveâ€ť inquiries can be tossed about without any drop-jawed
stares or threats to call security. When I first started writing, some thirty
odd years ago, the bulk of data hunting had to be done at libraries. Hereâ€™s a
few questions that Iâ€™m glad I didnâ€™t have to ask my local librarian.
- Could you direct me to the section on poisons or would you happen to know if
arsenic has enough smell to it to detect it in someoneâ€™s drink?
- Which is better at lopping off arms and heads: a broadsword or an axe?
- I need a book on knot-tyingâ€”more specifically a hangmanâ€™s noose.
- How long does it take a one hundred and fifty-pound man to die from lack of
food and water?
See what I mean about â€śsensitiveâ€ť inquiries? To celebrate the release of My
Tempting Highlander and also show any *ahem* security investigators why the
above questions were pertinent to my series, Iâ€™m giving away one copy of each
(MY HIGHLAND LOVER, MY HIGHLAND BRIDE, and MY TEMPTING HIGHLANDER) to
introduce one lucky commenter to the Highland Hearts series.
To enter, just answer this question in the comments:
If you could jump back and forth across centuries, what era would you like to visit?
No one has the power to shatter your dreams unless you give it to them.
Thatâ€™s Maeve Greysonâ€™s mantra. When sheâ€™s not working at the steel mill,
Greysonâ€™s writing romances about sexy Highlanders and the women who tame them.
She and her hubby of nearly thirty-seven years reside in a five acre wood in
From the author of My
Highland Brideâ€”hailed by Sandy Blair as â€śan entertaining time-travel story
packed with spice, humor, fantasy, and nonstop adventureâ€ťâ€”comes a sensual novel
featuring a wolf-shifting chieftain who travels centuries to modern-day Scotland
to tame his one and only.
Cursed to live forever with neither wife nor child, Ronan Sutherland has watched
all he cherishes turn to dustâ€”more than once. For hundreds of years, heâ€™s been
trapped behind the mists of Loch Ness, hoping to identify the one woman who is
prophesied to break the spell. Now, at last, the fates have aligned, and heâ€™s
being sent into the future to fetch her. After a single glimpse, Ronan knows
heâ€™s been waiting all his life for this passionate woman.
Unlike her time-traveling sisters, Mairi Sinclair is perfectly content to remain
in the present. As a hospital nurse in Edinburgh, she cherishes the opportunity
to put her gift of healing powers to good use. But everything changes the
morning a mysterious wolf darts in front of her car. Touching the wounded
creatureâ€™s tawny coat, a tingle surges through her. Yet when she returns with
aid, Mairi is shocked to find instead a man with broad shoulders and fire in his
eyesâ€”a man who tempts her to unleash the animal within.
â€śWith deft strokes, Maeve Greyson paints another exciting and heartwarming
time-travel romance. As she takes you from the thirteenth century to the
twenty-first, youâ€™ll smile over the family antics, shiver over an ancient curse,
and swoon over the kilted heroes.â€ťâ€”Vonnie Davis, author of the
Highlanderâ€™s Beloved series
â€śOnce again Ms. Greyson has effortlessly transported me into this magical world.
. . . With danger, excitement, sizzling heat and moments of laughter, My
Tempting Highlander . . . is the ultimate Highland
â€śThere is a lot to love in this series . . . including great writing, a fast
pace, and another fresh and unique plot. I loved [My Tempting
Highlander] and am sure you will as well.â€ťâ€”CK2S Kwips and
â€śI love time travels, especially historical ones, and this time travel did not
disappoint me.â€ťâ€”Sportochickâ€™s Musings
â€śI have fallen hard for time travel novels, so this series has definitely hit
the spot!â€ťâ€”Kilts and Swords

Matchmaking granny caught my eye! Looking forward to this book!
(Laurie Bergh 9:41am March 3, 2016)
wow. haven't read any of these yet -- nor, as a librarian,
have i ever gotten those questions! -- but really really
(Sandy Haber 11:19am March 3, 2016)
I am afraid that I would not want to travel back in time, I
am too comfortable in the current time for that. However,
reading about someone else's time travel experience gives
all of the excitement with none of the discomfort.
(G. Bisbjerg 11:56am March 3, 2016)
Hmmm, maybe see what a Regency ball looked like, the Wild West... so many interesting times and places one could experience...
(Colleen Conklin 12:14pm March 3, 2016)
Soo many to choose from - I think I would start with
Ancient Egypt then move onto Ancient Rome. Could you
imagine visiting the library of Alexandria.
(Janis Milford 4:03pm March 3, 2016)
This sounds so good! I would love to read it!
(Kay Salbador 4:13pm March 3, 2016)
I would love to time jump to 12th or 13th century Scotland,
then depending on how things went I am not sure if I would
go forward or back a little further. I would make sure to
carry just a few items with me.
(Angela Covarrubias 2:06am March 4, 2016)
The Meiji era in Japan or maybe the 18th century in Europe
(age of enlightenment).
(Vanessa Hinman 9:42am March 4, 2016)
I would visit the Regency era in England.
(Cheryl Castings 2:57pm March 4, 2016)
I thought Salem but I would be hanging or burning for something. So I better stay where I am at. I love the cover and can't wait to read.
(Jennifer Beck 4:42pm March 4, 2016)
I think I would love to visit ancient Egypt, and see the building of the
pyramids! I would even love to see the pyramids today as they are, but
watching something so massive and beautiful being built back then without
the technologies we have today would be really cool to see.
(Lily Shah 4:44pm March 4, 2016)
love your books .
(Shanan Moening 2:31am March 5, 2016)
I would go back to the wild wild west . I can see me working in a saloon . Remember Miss Kitty in Gun Smoke ? That would be me .LOL
(Joan Thrasher 10:59am March 5, 2016)
I'd love to check out my ancestors, so I'd start with the
early 20th century to check out my grandparents as young
(Diane Sallans 7:39pm March 5, 2016)
This sounds like a series that I would enjoy reading. I love time travel
(Quynh Schooter 5:10am March 6, 2016)
I would like to go back to the 18th century in Europe! I love your teaser!!!
(Bonnie Capuano 10:01am March 6, 2016)
Love the Highland stories!
(Gwenn Ostman 1:37pm March 6, 2016)
It would be the wild West. I have to give into consideration of how race and being a female would affect my social standing.
(Kai Wong 4:54pm March 6, 2016)
Not sure I would want to travel back in time. My health has
always been precarious and I probably would be first to die!
On the other hand, I dearly love reading about the past.
Particularly Revolutionary War era.
(Marcia Berbeza 10:56pm March 6, 2016)
Oh gosh. I've always been fascinated by the English Civil
War. Other people find it incredibly boring, but I find it
fascinating. It was when the change from the Rennaissance
to the modern world was happening.
(Deb Philippon 2:32pm March 7, 2016)
This looks like it will be a great book. I love to find new-to-
(Sharon Shearouse 2:57pm March 7, 2016)
I think the 1920's
(Chris Roberts 6:34pm March 7, 2016)
I think the Revolutionary War was a period I would want to
(LaRonda Atchison 2:53am March 8, 2016)
Probably the 1500s to Italy so I can find out more about my
ancestor, Titian Vecellio and his family.
(Leona Olson 3:21pm March 8, 2016)
Loved the matchmaking granny!!!! Can't wait to read this book!!!
(Bonnie Capuano 10:11am March 9, 2016)
1774-1776 America to meet Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson etc.
(Sandra Spilecki 12:11pm March 9, 2016)
I enjoy reading about the past, but am thankful I live in the present.
(Anna Speed 12:20pm March 9, 2016)
I would travel to 19th century Europe.
(Rebekah Elrod 2:37pm March 9, 2016)
Men in kilts drives me nuts
(Natasha Persaud 2:53pm March 9, 2016)
So not interested in visiting a time before air conditioning but the 1920s
might be interesting if you had money.
