Tempting Will McGlashen by Liz Everly - 500by C. Margery Kempe

This week we’re spotlighting Liz Everly’s latest, Tempting Will McGlashen, out now from Tirgearr. In case you need a reminder, here’s the blurb:

Mathilde Miller wanted to be a good daughter and marry the son of a long-time family friend, Joshua Bowman. But she didn’t want to be the wife of a Pennsylvania farmer. She loved her life, cooking on the Virginia frontier at her family’s ordinary. The minute blacksmith Will McGlashen walks into her kitchen, her restlessness focused on him. Fresh from Scotland, with a voice “like a song” and thick coppery hair, her heart belonged to him. Was it possible for the daughter of a Pennsylvania German to marry a hired man from Scotland? What did she really know about Will McGlashen and his secret past?

Well, we know how easily I am tempted by a Scotsman 😉 And a blacksmith, too — think of the muscles in those arms! I’m sold, but then I love Liz’s books. She has a way of capturing sensual scenes with perfect attention to the right details and great dialogue, too. I’m looking forward to catching up with Mathilde and Will as they fall in love.

I’ll admit it’s not my favourite time period for historicals: my alter ego Kit Marlowe writes stories set in the medieval period, the 19th century and the roaring 20s. I only got American history in my schools and was sick to death of pilgrims, colonists and revolutionary war. But you know, all it takes is the right story to get me interested in something again. There’s so much potential for adventure, too. We forget how much of wild place Virginia is in that time period. It’s really on the edge of wilderness and the colonists are interlopers in another country.

You don’t want to miss the chance to find out what happens — and hey, look what I’ve got coming soon: a medieval M/M romance, Spinning Gold. At Lady Smut we do what we can to please you. Follow us if you don’t want to miss a thing.

    “It’s really on the edge of wilderness and the colonists are interlopers in another country.” That is one of the many facets I find interesting about this time in history. Um–there IS also that Scottish blacksmith…

    You are so right, Kel! And thighs too — carrying all that heavy metal… Hmmmmm

    It’s funny… people always mention the arms when they talk about blacksmiths. I always notice the line from shoulder to upper back. Delts get a lovely workout when swinging a hammer and pulling a bellows.

    Ahem. Anyway… too right on forgetting that most of the US was “frontier” quite recently.
