Meet Iosbail and Alexander from Highland Persuasion

Thanks for joining me on Highland Persuasion’s, Bewitching Book Tour. Book two in The MacLomain Series- Early Years, Highland Persuasion, focuses on the turbulent attraction between two sworn enemies. An immortal, Iosbail is determined to bring revenge on Salvator. A mortal man, Alexander swears the same. But even the most determined rivals can get caught up in unavoidable desire. So goes the tale of these two.

I thought it might be fun to interview them today at TBQ’s Personal Book Palace. This will be a two part interview that concludes the day after tomorrow at KH LeMoyne’s, Fantasy Powered by Love blog (http://fantasypoweredbylove.com/). To make it interesting, I interviewed them separately in order to obtain their most truthful responses to the following questions. Do these two see things the same way? Let’s see.

SKY:  Tell us a little bit about you.

IOSBAIL: An immortal, I was born in fifth century Ireland but left when young to travel across Europe and eventually settle in East Lothian where I birthed the Broun clan. Years later, I left the Brouns and spent my later years with my brother’s highland clan, the MacLomains.

ALEXANDER:  I can tell you who I once was but not who I’ve become. That is revealed in the story. But back when it all began I was the chieftain of the Sinclair clan.


SKY:   Remembering the moment you first laid eyes on Alexander/Iosbail, what thoughts come to mind?

IOSBAIL:  I didnae expect him to be so handsome. I was sure that my sworn enemy would be a vile creature.

ALEXANDER:  I thought her far too bonnie to be a Broun. Surely she was the devil in disguise.


SKY:   He/she has one trait you adored from the start. What is it? You know without doubt he/she appreciates one of your traits. Share what you think that is.

IOSBAIL:  Alexander had a softness toward the wee bairns I didnae anticipate. ‘Tis hard to say if Alexander favored anything about me at the beginning. Mayhap my skills in battle. *grins*

ALEXANDER:  Aye, Iosbail’s a feisty lass. What’s not to love about that? I always did like a good challenge. ‘Tis unlikely she enjoyed much about me when we first met. If she did, ‘twas not mentioned.


SKY:  He/she has one trait you’d change if you could. What is it? Oh yeah, there’s a trait you know he’d/she’d change about you…fess up!

IOSBAIL:  ‘Tis little I would change about the lad. Even his obstinate nature now appeals to me. Who knew that would happen! Would he change a thing about me? Nay. Never.  

ALEXANDER: Iosbail has a constant habit, or should I say desire, to put herself in harm’s way. Whether she is immortal or not, it used to alarm me. Now, I will admit there is something alluring about a lass who fights well alongside me. Do I think she would change something about me? Nay. Not a thing.
