About the Author: Monica McCarty

What do you get when you mix a legal career, a baseball career, motherhood, and a love of history with a voracious reader In my case, a Historical Romance Author.Like most writers, I ve always loved to read Growing up in California there was always plenty to do outside, but all too often I could be found inside curled up with a book or two or three I started with the usual fare The Little House on the Prairie series, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit, Watership Down, Nancy Drew, and everything by Judy Blume Once I cleared off my bookshelf, I started swiping books from my mom Some, like Sidney Sheldon s The Other Side of Midnight, probably weren t the most appropriate choice for a pre adolescent although they were definitely illuminating I can still remember the look of abject horror on my mom s Catholic girl face when I asked her what a virgin was After that rather brief conversation, she paid a little closer attention to what had disappeared off her book shelf, and steered me in the direction of Harlequin and Barbara Cartland romances I was hooked I quickly read through the inventory of the local library and was soon buying bags of romances at garage sales.In high school, with the encouragement of my father who I think was a little concerned about the steady diet of romances , I read over eighty of the Franklin Library s One Hundred Greatest Books ever written including Tolstoy, Confucius, Plato, and the entire works of Shakespeare Some of them were tough going for a teenager, but the experience would prove an invaluable foundation for college After reading War and Peace, I wasn t easily intimidated.For some reason Monica decided to go into writing and not fashion.After graduation, I loaded up the VW Jetta not Bus and trekked down I 5 to attend the University of Southern California, majoring in Political Science and minoring in English see why all that reading helped I joined the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, and when I wasn t studying or at football games, did my best to support the local bartending industry Ah, the good old days.With that kind of fun, four years of college wasn t quite enough So leaving Tommy Trojan behind, I traveled back up north to Palo Alto for threeyears of study at Stanford Law School Once I survived the stress of the first semester, law school proved to be one of the best times of my life garnering me a JD, life long friends, a husband, and an unexpectedly intimate knowledge of baseball See The Baseball Odyssey below.Law School was also where I fell in love with Scotland In my third year, I took a Comparative Legal History class, and wrote a paper on the Scottish Clan System and Feudalism So I immediately dropped out of law school and went on to write Scottish Historical Romances well no, not quite You see, I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer My father was a lawyer, I was a poet i.e., not into math , and I love to argue It seemed natural.So I finished law school, got married, passed the CA bar, moved to Minnesota with a few stops along the way , waived into the MN bar, worked as a litigator for a few satisfying years, moved back to CA, had a couple of kids, realized that a legal career and being a single parent for most of the year due to husband s career would be extremely difficult, and THEN decided to sit down and write.And how did I end up writing romance It s not as divergent as it seems What I loved about being a lawyer are the same things I love about being a writer research and writing The only thing missing is the arguing, but that s what a husband and kids are for, right

    Basic set up Robert the Bruce needs an elite guard of highlanders who don t fight by the knightly code of honor who can go in and do the dirty work that the true knights won t do and send the awful English King Edward back south of the border where he belongs They want Tor MacLeod to train and lead the elite force, but he s not interested sodevious means are contrived and Christina Fraser is the bait Christina is happiest spending her time

    4 stars The Chief is a well written and informative book that in many ways feltlike an historical fiction the quality of the author s research is very apparent than a romance novel However, when the hero and heroine were together they certainly steamed up the pages Their love story was captivating, heartwarming, and at times heartbreaking Their much deserved HEA warmed my heart I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

    Wow, what an amazing first book This is book one in the Highland Guard series, and I wasthan impressed Sometimes an author comes along who puts so much history into a novel that it is like reading a textbook Monica McCarty is NOT one of those, in fact the history of William Wallace and the time of the Bruce was inserted so seamlessly that it hardly felt like I was reading history It was part of the story, and part of Christina and Tor s romance.Chri
