Blog Tour

Welcome Emma Prince Celtic Barb's Kilted Tartan Book Reviews honored to be part of this blog tour. Thank you Emma and Secret Realm Book Reviews and Services for the invitation.  
I actually met Emma Prince last summer at Nationals, Romance Writers of America Convention in NYC. This was before I had read any of her books. We were introduced by mutual friend and Scottish historical author Eliza Knight, at a cocktail party for book promoters like myself and authors like Emma. Besides this story teller having God given talent, this multi talented author is beautiful,warm, kind, funny, smart and amazing woman! The type that makes a person feel like they have known her forever. We just clicked! I came home and immediately started reading her Sinclair books which I totally fell in love with, as I have with her most recent Viking series, which is fabulous too. I now feel so honored to have met this lovely multi talented woman and discovered her brilliant books. I highly recommend if you love history and romance you don't want to miss her amazing stories they are all spectacular!

But Ansel’s dark eyes cut through all her defenses, threatening to undo her resolve. To protect her past, she cannot submit to the white-hot desire that burns between them. As the threat to her life spirals out of control, she has no choice but to trust Ansel to whisk her to safety deep in the heart of the Highlands...

Though Ansel is less then thrilled by this mission but even he knew he had little choice plus these were dangerous waters these days in Scotland.  Even with The victory of Battle Bannockburn the war still continues in one way or another. The wind could shift in a second and could possibly turn in favor of the English  with Scottish Independence always at risk.

When he arrives in England he meets mysterious and mistrusting beautiful Lady Isolda of Embleton  the mother of the Earl son and when accident s start happening she sends the boy in to hiding onky she knows where her son is,and to his frustration won't reveal who his ward is or why.

Another phenomenal, riveting  fictional romance lined with true factual Scottish history! This is my favorite book ingredients for reading my favorite genre, Scottish historical romance. Ms. Prince does this brilliantly as she weaves past history into her fictional  captivating original, ,  imaginative story! This is one of the reasons multi talented Emma Prince is one of my most favorite authors on the planet!  It is a must read exceptional storyline, breathtaking setting, characters that glide right off the pages and come to life! This book is also filled with mystery, suspense, betrayal, mistrust, heartbreak, healing, passion and love. Has all the element you might expect and more!  This wonderful tale had me reeled in from start to finish as I simply could not put it down! A story that will claim your heart and warm your soul! I highly recommend as I absolutely and unequivocally loved The Lady's Protector!  5 Kilts
