Review: Binding Vows (MacCoinnich Time Travel #1) by Catherine Bybee
Binding Vows was a delightful surprise, blending two of my favorite things, Scottish men and time travel, together into one book. Bybee writes in such a way that I often could not put the book down for a span of several hours. She takes the traditional romance formula of the beautiful virgin, the experienced warrior, and the irrefutable power of true love, and makes it feel new.

Giveaway (US/Int) and Spotlight on: The Vows Trilogy, time travel and historical romance by Catherine Bybee
Duncan MacCoinnich’s task… Travel to the twenty-first century Renaissance Faire, deflower the Druid virgins, and go home. Only his job is not so easily accomplished with the virgin in question, Tara McAllister.
Time is running out. The evil is closing in on them both.
Tara finds Duncan irresistible after what was supposed to be a mock Hand-fasting binds them.

And is it love they feel? Or something else?

She finds herself stuck in a rocky situation that is only escape-able by jumping into the willing, rock hard, muscular frame of one Scottish hottie with a body - the Laird Ross. Monty to his buddies, Oh-Mama-Please-Rip-My Clothes-Off-And-Bang-Me to any red blooded woman within licking distance. What's Jilly do when she finds herself transported back in time and falling for a brogue and some thickly muscled thighs? Pfft, girl, you know what she does! She uses his tartan for a snot rag and then eats him out of [...]

Book Tour: Going Back for Romeo author L.L. Muir on offing your own pen name
In Going Back For Romeo, the heroine is buried alive in order to be sent back in time. But other than that, I’d have to say the darkest thing I’ve ever written was a scene where I murdered my nom de plume—my pen name, my other self.
That’s right. I murdered Ainsley MacQueen.

While I’m delighted you loved the book, I always enjoy your reviews, positive or negative, because you go into detail and give me a different perspective from when I was writing it. Plus, when you enjoy it to the point that you recall favorite scenes and quotes, it gives me the chance to recall my own favorite moments in the book (wink). Thank you again!" ~ author Joey W. Hill
