I’m so excited to have my friend, a sister Lyrical Press writer, with me today! She’s got a new self-published highlander book available now. And for the record- I love Riggs! >grin<
To tell us about Highlander Wishes, Bk 2: The Wolf and the Highlander, please show a big Ranch welcome to Jessi Gage.
Thanks for having me again, Calisa! So far 2014 has been a crazy rollercoaster of editing, formatting, self-publishing, and promoting. I seriously could not be having more fun. I wasn’t sure I would enjoy all the stuff that goes along with self-publishing, but I DO! It’s so much fun!
This month, I’m celebrating the release of second book in my Highland Wishes series, THE WOLF AND THE HIGHLANDER, which features a bearded virgin who lives in a secluded cabin and never goes anywhere without his trusty axe. Did I mention I got his name from a popular action movie? Despite Mel Gibson kind of going off his rocker in recent years, you’ve got to admit he makes one heck of an action flick. So I named my hero after his character in Lethal Weapon: Riggs.
To send this one off with a bang, I’m holding a giveaway that will run for the entire month. Up for grabs are several e-copies of the book and some Amazon gift cards. Click GIVEAWAY to enter!
Anya’s been a bad girl. A vindictive plot against one of her clansmen backfired, resulting in her grave injury. Now scarred and crippled, her selfish ambition has turned into bitter self-loathing. She finds nothing lovely about herself, and doesn’t expect anyone else to either. But when a magical wishing box sends her to another dimension, she becomes the most valuable prize imaginable.
While hunting a rare marbled boar, Riggs, a trapper in Marann’s western forest, hears a strange cry. Distracted from the hunt, he loses the sow but finds instead something more valuable than a whole cart packed with marbled boar skins. A woman. She is delicate, her teeth are small and flat, and her skin is curiously hairless. She is not wolfkind. Maybe she is the miracle his people have been hoping for.
Riggs must bring Anya to King Magnus, because breeding rights belong first and foremost to His Majesty, who needs an heir. But the female calls to a primal part of him. He longs to keep her in secret and take her as his mate. But if he gives in to the temptation, he could single handedly bring about the end of civilization.
More retailers coming soon!
Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries…you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she’s sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
What a great sounding book, Jessi. I think you have a little something for commenters, don’t you?
Yes. If you had to name a romance hero after a movie character, which character would you choose? Leave a comment to earn an extra point in the giveaway mentioned above!
Thanks again for having me, Calisa!
Thank you for bringing The Wolf and the Highlander to share with us!
