30 days of Highlanders: Day 17: Guest Post: Trish B + Giveaway

May 12, 2011

Trish B!/TrishB

I am really thrilled that JoJo asked me to be a part of 30 days with a Highlander. When she asked me to write why I love them. My first thought was, who doesn't? And, if you have never read a book about a Highlander, I have just gasped out of disbelief! You must correct this misfortune as fast as possible! Trust me you will never be the same and you will thank me!

Jamie Fraser
I believe it all started with James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser from Outander by Diana Gabaldon.

After my long love affair with Jamie, I went searching for more Highlander books. I soon found all sorts of yumminess in Monica McCarty's and Karen Marie Moning's Books. I really can't say I love one Highlander
hero more than the other.

It could be because they all are enchanting to me. There is something about a man with a sexy lilt, that makes you swoon. It could be the visual of a huge, muscular, hot, sexy man clad in a kilt, strapped with swords, standing next to a huge castle. It also could be the fierceness, honorability and protectiveness ways towards clan & the love of thier lives.The passion, oh the passion. I am talking about put the book down for a minute to fan yourself passion. These men, when they fall in love they fall hard. Nothing makes my heart pound more than a Highlander who has completely given in to a love that they can't live without.

Sometimes a line or 2 from a book sticks with you forever. Leaves you wanting to remember the moment, tryingto picture their face, because you have inexplicably put yourself in the book as the heroine. I have 2 that I always go back to. They make me weak in the knees...totally swoon worthy.

"Does it ever stop? The wanting you? Even when I've just left ye, I want you so much my chest feels tight and my fingers ache with wanting to touch ye again." ~Jamie Fraser

"If aught must be lost, 'twill be my honor for yours. If one must be forsaken, 'twill be my soul for yours. Should death come anon, 'twill be my life for yours. I am Given."~Drustan MacKeltar

I just can't get enough of them. I just want to be sucked back in time, sit on a hill in Scotland, staring down at a beautiful castle, wrapped in my Highland Warriors tartan as the wind carries the sound and smell of him.

A girl can dream, can't she?

They are hot, sexy, fierce, loyal, passionate, caring, and protective. Also, they have such sexy accents.

Kasumi May 12, 2011 at 9:56 AM  

Umm, probably that they are so manly... But it really freaks me out the very first time because I visualized a man in a skirt :p


Victoria May 12, 2011 at 10:41 AM  

What do I love about Highlanders - They are the ultimate in male! Big, strong, protective, loyal......

June M. May 12, 2011 at 10:44 AM  

Highlanders are always thought of as big, muscular, strong alpha men who are very protective and loyal. They have sexy accents and the kilts....just EVERYTHING about them! LOL

They are sexy, rugged, fierce, strong, caring, passionate, and protective. Oh, and they have a wicked sexy accent.

Natasha May 13, 2011 at 8:00 PM  

I only recently came into reading Highlander novels, but once I started, I was hooked!
The fierceness, protectiveness and love they possess is fascinating and when in reading.. very engrossing! I love it!!


Chelsea B.,  May 13, 2011 at 10:17 PM  

Only EVERYTHING! Haha ;-) Really, though, I adore the accents. And kilts. Who would have thought that a man in a skirt would be so smexy to so many of us? :-)


Victoria May 14, 2011 at 1:26 PM  

Highlanders are the ultimate in male and that's what appeals to me most. They are big, strong, protective and loyal.

Unknown May 14, 2011 at 6:08 PM  

I love their loyalty, protectiveness, stubborness, kilts and accents.

Kasumi May 14, 2011 at 7:58 PM  

I think it's the same that I love in men: they can be so strong and the same time so tender with their women...

Thanks for the international giveaway!


Unknown May 15, 2011 at 1:08 AM  

Gosh -- what DOESN'T appeal to me???!!! They are so loyal to their families. They're HAWT. They work hard. They ..... Well, in the right book, they're just magical -- litterally and figuratively!

I love the way they love their women, care for their children and are so very passionate about life in general.

For me, the attraction to highlanders always comes down to one thing. The accent! I love the brogue!

There is so many things that appeal to me. I guess the one that stands out is the accent. Oh how i could listen to them talk all day long.

That quote that you showed that Drustan MacKelter said is also one of my favorites. How could a girl not love that! ;)

Thanks for sharing!

BLHmistress May 16, 2011 at 1:16 AM  

Accent , Accent Accent ok besides that well how about how fiercely protective they are and of course lastly how they carry their swords.


Anonymous,  May 16, 2011 at 10:41 AM  

Highlanders are alpha males. They're strong, loyal, and very protective of the people they care about. Plus they have that wonderful accent!

Trish May 17, 2011 at 7:14 AM  

I thought I had commented on here, but that must have been when Blogger was down..booo!

It seems that we all feel about the same things about Highlanders!

@Maria I could just read that quote over and over again. SWOON!

@BLHmistress I had never thought about how they carry their swords, that is another thing I will have to add to my list ;)

@Chelsea I think all men should at least wear a kilt, one time in their life, don't you? :)

Texas Book Lover May 17, 2011 at 8:07 AM  

I love how devoted and passionate they are! Oh and there is something about the kilts and accents!

Camille May 31, 2011 at 9:18 PM  

I'm ashamed to say I resisted the lure of Gabaldon for many years until I picked it up one depressing day and OMG it changed my life, literally I was at a very low point and then came Jamie *sigh*

what is it about highlanders? I'll go with what Diana Gabaldon said when I happened to be lucky enough to meet her- "it's the allure of just how fast they can get you on a wall [with those kilts]" *G*
