1 favorite scene from Tamed by a Highlander.
“Do ye see that?”

She narrowed her eyes and then she took a step forward. Was that a rooftop? A chimney?

He took her hand before she could ask him and led her and their horses through the thicket. They emerged in an open field grass and lush carpets of bluebell and poppies. It was so beautiful that Mairi had to stop to take it all in. He urged her onward, bringing her to where the field slopped downward into a small vale.

Mairi stopped again, and this time, Connor remained still at her side as she gazed at a small manor house nestled in the center of the vale, surrounded on every side by more bluebells and tall yellow flowers that swayed in the misty breeze.

“’Tis…” She caught her breath and fought the sudden sting behind her eyes.

“Aye?”

“...the bonniest place I have ever seen. Who lives there?”

“I do.”

She turned to look at him, unsure if she heard him right. “Ye?” When he nodded, she shook her head. “I thought ye lived at Whitehall? How…? When…?”

He smiled. “I began building it seven years ago.” He curled his fingers around hers again and picked up his steps.
Thanks for answering our questions, Paula! Fellow romance lovers, to learn more about Paula's books, check out her website and follow her on Twitter, Goodreads and Facebook.

Here's the synopsis for Tamed by a Highlander:
abandon
A LOVER'S PROMISE
Connor Grant left his first love in the Highlands, vowing to return after serving in the king's army. Seven years later, he is still fighting for the crown, and his victories are legendary-both in the battlefield and in the bedroom. Yet he's never forgotten his bonnie lass. And he certainly never expected to see her amidst the splendor of the British royal court: beautiful, breathtaking, and tempting him past the point of no return.

A LADY'S DESTINY
The night he left, Mairi MacGregor banished Connor from her life forever. Now her heart belongs only to Scotland. As part of a secret alliance, she journeys to London in search of information . . . only to find herself face to face with the one man she swore she'd never trust again. Though Mairi's body still craves Connor's touch, she can't forgive his betrayal. But a traitor lurks in their midst and to protect her beloved Highlands, Mairi must make a leap of faith and join forces with Connor-even if it means losing her heart to him again.
Check out the other two historical romances in the tour. Here's the synopsis for Lady of Seduction by Laurel McKee. It's the third book in her Daughters of Erin trilogy.

ladyofseduction
It's a mad, ill-advised journey that leads the usually sensible Lady Caroline Blacknall to the legendary isle of Muirin Inish, off the windswept coast of Ireland. Even so, she doesn't expect to find herself shipwrecked and then rescued by a man she believed she would never see again. A man who, long ago, held her life in his hands . . . and with it, her heart.

Reformed rake Sir Grant Dunmore knew he could never forget the beautiful woman he once endangered nor will he ever forgive himself. But history seems doomed to repeat itself, for as long as Caroline stays on the island, she is trapped in a secret plot that could forever free Ireland-or turn deadly for all. And yet, now that she is in his arms again, how can he dream of ever letting her go?
The synopsis of Sue-Ellen Welfonder's Temptation of a Highland Scoundrel. It's the second book in her Highland Warriors series.
temptationofahighlandscoundrel
The second book in the Highland Warriors trilogy, in which three heroes make a pact to insure that a rival clan doesn't take over their glen and cause destruction. At the same time, three women will plot to marry these heroes to help insure peace.

In TEMPTATION OF A HIGHLAND SCOUNDREL, Kendrew Macintosh's reputation precedes him: he wields an ax with deathly precision, strikes fear into his enemies, and lusts after beautiful women. But Kendrew has never met someone whose passion rivals his own-until an unexpected encounter with a mysterious woman. Unfortunately, he soon discovers that the vixen is Isobel Cameron, daughter of an enemy clansman. Their relationship is forbidden and Kendrew breaks away immediately. Isobel has her own scheme. She has lusted after Kendrew for some time and plans to draw the fierce warrior back into her arms. But in the darkness, villainous forces are at play--an enemy is determined to keep the two lovers apart, even if it means death.
