Interview with Amanda Forester Tomorrow, March 15

If you like Scottish medievals or if you like men in kilts, come over tomorrow for my interview with Amanda Forester, author of The Highlander's Sword, her debut novel. Find out what attracted her to this period--besides the men in kilts.

As a special bonus, leave a comment with your email address for a chance to win one of two copies of The Highlander's Sword. Amanda will select the winners. Please note that Sourcebooks can mail only to the USA and Canada.


A quiet, flame-haired beauty with secrets of her own...
Lady Aila Graham is destined for the convent, until her brother's death leaves her an heiress. Soon she is caught between hastily arranged marriage with a Highland warrior, the Abbot's insistence that she take her vows, the Scottish Laird who kidnaps her, and the traitor from within who betrays them all.

She's nothing he expected and everything he really needs...
Padyn MacLaren, a battled-hardened knight, returns home to the Highlands after years of fighting the English in France. MacLaren bears the physical scars of battle, but it is the deeper wounds of betrayal that have rocked his faith. Arriving with only a band of war-weary knights, MacLaren finds his land pillaged and his clan scattered. Determined to restore his clan, he sees Aila's fortune as the answer to his problems...but maybe it's the woman herself.

Amanda Forester holds a PhD in psychology and worked for many years in academia before discovering that writing historical romance novels was way more fun. She lives in the Pacific Northwest outside Tacoma, Washington with her husband, two energetic children, and one lazy dog. You can visit her at

Hope to see you tomorrow.

Thank you all,
