In the thirteenth Century, Graham McTavish is adjusting to being himself now that he is no longer under the curse that held him captive. But when he sleeps with the wrong women, he discovers that he has brought trouble to his clan. And when the Sinclair women have a vision that Lilia Sinclair needs him in the Twenty-first Century, Graham knows that he must go, and never return. But Graham didn't count on falling for this fiery, strong-willed empath, who suddenly makes his life worth living. And when she must return to the past, he is damned if he will let her go back alone...even if it means risking his life.
Lilia Sinclair knows what it is like to feel alone. As an empath, she has had to guard herself against the world around her. But with the arrival of Graham MacTavish, she cannot help but let the man in. With undeniable chemistry and understanding, their feelings cannot be ignored. And when Lilia loses her guardian, she allows herself to lean on Graham. But when they return to the past, spies are in their midst, and both Lilia and Graham will have to fight until the bitter end. Can they survive or will they lose their chance of love and happiness?
MY SEDUCTIVE HIGHLANDER by Maeve Greyson is the fourth book in the Highland Hearts series, and once again the author delivers. With meticulous detail, I was transported to the Highlands, both past, and present, and completely fell under its spell. Graham and Lilia have both experienced loss and loneliness, and it was wonderful to see two strong, independent characters realise that it was ok to need each other and lean on each other. With plenty of laughter, magic, danger, and sizzlingly passionate encounters, MY SEDUCTIVE HIGHLANDER by Maeve Greyson is romance at its finest, with an ending that will bring a tear to your eye. I cannot wait to see what else Maeve Greyson has got in store for us readers!

Q&A with Maeve Greyson
I was lucky enough to get to chat with the very talented Maeve Greyson and ask her some questions about writing and her love for the Highlands. Check it out below:
1. My Seductive Highlander is the fourth book of the Highland Hearts series. Is this the last that we will see of the Sinclair women and their families?
You never know. I learned a long time ago to never say “never”.
2. You obviously spend a lot of time researching Scotland and its history for your novels. What does this research entail? And have you ever visited the Highlands in the flesh?
Research is one of the best things about bringing a story to life. I extensively search the Internet and I’ve got loads of books about Celtic myths and legends and the history of Scotland. Some of those books were found while Hubby and I spent a delightful two weeks visiting Scotland and Ireland four long years ago. I wish I could accurately describe the energy and magic I felt while walking the streets of Edinburgh and standing on the side of the road in the middle of the Highlands, staring at the glorious land spread out before me. History is everywhere and it’s almost as though the memories and passion of the past are alive and constantly battling to be heard—never to be forgotten.
3. Working full-time, writing, and having a family life sounds like a lot. How do you manage to balance it all?
Plain and simple—God has blessed me way more than I deserve. My family fully supports me, completely understanding when I have to spend hours glued to my laptop. Hubby grocery shops, cooks, and cleans and tells every soul he meets that his wife is the “famous” Maeve Greyson. He tiptoes around when I’m writing into the wee hours of the night and never complains when I forget to mute the speakers on my laptop and it blares out that I’ve got mail at 3a.m. on workday morning.
I’ve worked at the steel mill for twenty-nine years so my co-workers are family too. They always help me any way possible. They spread the word about new releases, buy my books, and shuffle vacation days with me so I can have time off when I need it. Writing is sometimes called a solitary profession but I beg to disagree. I never could’ve made it this far without my friends and family.
4. Have you a favourite character that has stood apart from all of the others? If so, why?
Granny Sinclair. I think she’s my favorite because I can relate to her so easily. I have two daughters and I know I’d move Heaven and earth to ensure their happiness in this world is never endangered.
And the older I get, the less my “mouth filters” work and my opinions tend to come out before I can edit them in my head and tone the down to a more civilized level. Granny does that all the time and glories in the shocked reactions she causes. Granny is fearless. She ignores the rules and doesn’t give a damn what anyone thinks. She knows her path and isn’t afraid to do what it takes to follow it.
5. Finally, there seems to be two types of writers - plotters (who plan everything out before they start to write) and pantsers (those who jump straight in and see where the story takes them). Are you a plotter or a pantsers?
Hmm…that’s a tough one. I’m sort of a hybrid of the two. I do my best to loosely outline and plot a story for my editor but then once I get into it and start putting the story on the page, it kind of takes on a life of its own and goes wherever it wants to go. Sometimes, my editor and I reel it back in and make it go where we want. But sometimes, we set it free and follow along and it turns out even better.
Thank you so very much for interviewing me! I enjoyed our visit.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Maeve Greyson for taking the time to answer my questions - I am definitely a little star-struck! 😊
When I’m not at my full time job at the steel mill, I’m tapping away on my laptop, recording my daydreams of sexy Highlanders and the headstrong women who drive them crazy.
I also think of myself as a “watcher”. I live in the middle of a five acre wood in Kentucky, sharing the clearing where our house sits with deer, raccoons, possums, wild turkeys and even a groundhog. Did you know they’re also called whistle pigs? I discovered why when Jasper startled Hamish McGroundhog. Hamish whistled the alarm and startled everybody.
My sweet friend Jasper has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge but I know in my heart he still watches over me. He’s my four-legged guardian angel.
I also enjoy people-watching—you know, kind of floating along the edge of a crowd and observing how folks go about their day. All this watching feeds into my stories so take care, you never know when a writer might be watching. For more information:
