Anya Summers | An Interview with Zoey Mills, heroine of HER HIGHLAND MASTER

Curious about the characters in HER HIGHLAND MASTER? Now's your chance to meet Zoey.

What is your name? Do you have a nickname?

My name is Zoey Mills. Sometimes my sister calls me Zoe or Z, but it’s rare.

Who is your best friend? What kinds of things do you do when you’re together?

Lucy Martin and I have been BFFs since grade school. She’s really like a sister to me. We experienced our first boyfriends together, puberty, high school, and college. She was the first person I called the day my parents died. One of our favorite things to do is a girl’s night out. We don’t worry about finding guys or anything, just go have a blast at a winery or pub.

If you have a family, how do you get along with them? If you don’t, are there people in your life that you consider family? How do you get along with them?

My baby sister is my only blood relative. We’re the best of friends. I’m not sure if it’s because of the fact that our parents died and we had to forge our way, or if it would have always been that way with the two of us.

Do you have a birthmark? Scars? Where is it/are they? How did you get it/them?

No, I don’t have any birthmarks. I’m pretty average physically I think.

When you’re angry, what do you do? Where do you go? How do you deal with your anger?

I’m more of a fighter. When I’m angry I typically go to the boxing gym near our house and go a few rounds with the bag. It gets it all out of my system and is a great workout to boot.

If you had to make me a meal right now, without going to the store, what would you find in your refrigerator to feed us?

Probably a spinach salad and some fruit. Although I always have my fridge stocked with wine and cheese too.

What’s the one thing you’re afraid of losing?

My sister. Our parents died in a car wreck six years ago and she’s the only family I have left.

What makes you laugh out loud?

British comedies. I love the dry wit and their off-beat humor. I cannot get enough of them.

Has anyone broken your heart? Who was s/he?

No one in the romantic sense, most of my relationships have been fairly bland. There was an event that shattered my heart though, it was the day my parents died. It’s something I don’t think I will ever fully recover from. As you get older you begin to understand that not all grief dissipates, some grief is so deep you will carry it with you all the days of your life.

What’s the one thing you want out of life that you don’t think you can have? Why can’t you have it?

A life of my own. Since my parents died, I’m the one who has kept the home fires burning, so to speak.


Her Highland 

Zoey Mills's life is in shambles. She’s been accused of leaking her upper crust Hollywood clients’ data to an online magazine for a large payday. After a wine and chocolate-filled evening of drowning her sorrows, she determines that her best course of action is to leave her home in sunny Los Angeles for a week-long vacation in the Scottish Highlands. It’s the only way she can escape from the fact that her image is being splashed across the nightly news – and it might actually give her a chance to consider what her next move should be, now that her Great Master Life Plan has disintegrated into dust.

Unfortunately, she's only just landed and is navigating the tiny roads in her rental car when a freak early autumn snow storm hits. Zoey finds herself stranded and winds up on the doorstep of Mullardoch Manor; home of the sexy Scotsman, Declan McDougal, who is her every dark fantasy brought to life.

Declan is one of the founding members of The Dungeon Fantasy Club. As a billionaire businessman and a Dom, he prefers to keep his sexual preferences and tastes away from the boardroom. He’s also become bored, not just with the club, but also with his life. None of the subs he meets can hold his interest for more than a night and it's been that way for a long time. He just never wants more than a brief encounter. At least, not since his ex-fiancée cheated on him with another Dom and ran away. However, that all changes when Zoey barrels into his home uninvited and upends his luxurious but stale existence.

When Zoey finds herself without a place to stay, Declan makes her a tantalizing but scandalous offer: Stay in his home for the week, free of charge, and spend each night warming his bed. Or any other time of the day, for that matter. Deciding she doesn't have much to lose and possibly everything to gain, Zoey accepts.

With Zoey’s every sweet subsequent cry of ecstasy, Declan uncovers a sub who warms not only his bed, but slowly thaws his frozen, scarred heart. And as Zoey explores her deepest fantasies, even as he spanks her bare bottom for disobeying his rules, she finds herself wanting more than just a week of unmitigated pleasure with the Dom.

Things seem to be progressing perfectly, both in bed and out, when Zoey’s past catches up with her. When he feels betrayed once more, and fears the woman he has grown to care for is not who she says she is, will Declan still be willing to risk his heart to become Her Highland Master?
