A Note From Hope:

I suppose you could say I've always been a dreamer. In my mind's eye, I can still see my first-grade teacher shaking her head and scolding, "Hope, stop daydreaming and pay attention!"

I tried, really I did. But how could the dreary assignment on the chalkboard begin to lure me away from the dashing Disney fairy-tale figures populating my head? Cinderella and Prince Charming, Snow White and Prince Charming, Sleeping Beauty and Pr--

Well, you get the picture.

As a romance writer, I get to spin fairy-tales of my very own--life-affirming stories in which the hero and heroine find not only their soul mate but their souls into the bargain. I've written twelve books to date, both historical and contemporary settings. Regardless, the overarching message underlying each cherished story remains the same.

True love truly exists and yes, when shared, it is intrepid.

Wishing you fairytale dreams come true,

Hope Tarr

Hope Tarr's BOUND TO PLEASE, a Medieval Scottish romance debuts a new category of Historicals in the Harlequin Blaze line. The story behind the romance is quite moving but one historical inaccuracy detracts from one of the finer Medieval literary allusions. Characterization, an intriguing plot and visual imagery make BOUND TO PLEASE a very good read for fans of red hot romance.

Ten years ago, in 1450 Scotland, Brianna MacLeod was the daughter of the MacLeod laird. A childhood encounter with Ewan Fraser opened her heart to the innocence and love in her heart as the two pledged to marry each other and no one else. Now, ten years later, Brianna has inherited her position as Laird from her now deceased father. She has married to the man her father chose and now stands as a widow. Her previous marriage, a marriage of duty, never inspired her heart. Always a hard worker, Brianna is saddled with all the responsibilities of her job and her heart is closed off. Nothing of the innocence or playfulness of her youth remains. Brianna kidnaps Ewan and chains him to a bed. Determined to get pregnant and bear a child from the two rival clans, Brianna once more feels the need to fulfill her duties of laird to bring peace. Love has nothing to do with it. Also, Ewan's twin brother Callum has been accused of murdering her father. As Ewan becomes her captive, Brianna finds herself attracted to him and he to her. In a game of love play, can they break through all the conventions and duty that bar them from love and open hearts? Can physical love lead to something more?

The characters are rich and multi-dimensional. Smart, spunky, dedicated and recognized for her role as laird, Brianna is a medieval lover and feminist's fantasy of the kind of heroine she might discover in a medieval text.

As a female Brianna MacLeod, laird of the clan MacLeod, needs to secure her precarious position as leader of her clan by birthing an heir. Only problem is that her husband has been murdered by her enemy -The Fraser. So in retaliation, she kidnaps the laird's brother, Ewan Fraser, to *use* for her purpose to get with child and then set aside. But soon Brianna realizes that she might not want to give up the *pleasure* of Ewan's company.

A Blaze historical? Yep, and its a rather good one considering that I didn't expect much. Although it did read more like a contemporary book and it is a little light on the historical aspects of the story, you still get the feel that your in medieval Scotland. So this shouldn't turn off readers of either genre.

I found it to be a surprisingly entertaining story with an engaging couple. Lots of love scenes (more in fact than the average blaze book) and a pretty decent revenge plot make Bound To Pleasure a good choice for summer reading. So if your in the mood for some steaming hot brawny Scot romance thats low on the historical mumbo jumbo, you might want to pick this one up.

Everyone said it couldn¢t be done, especially in 15th Century Scotland. But, Brianna MacLeod is the new Laird of her Clan. In a few short weeks she has lost her beloved father, her husband and the baby she had on the way. But, as she is Laird now she is going to get over these losses and rule her people, as she was groomed to. Even if that means kidnapping Ewan, the brother of her husband¢s murderer. Unfortunately, Brianna has a history with Ewan and he is one man that she has never gotten out of her mind, though they met when only children.

Ewan has never forgotten Briannna and he never expected to be kidnapped and then chained to her bed. All the fantasies his brain had concocted had them living happily ever after, even if it was never to be. Now he is enslaved and angered, that is until he spends more time with her. Now who is really the enslaved one? Will honor and clan loyalties keep them apart?

Bound to Please has it all; a hot Highland warrior, smart as a whip female Laird, a bit of star crossed lovers and it is all nicely wrapped up into a Harlequin Blaze romance. What more could any red blooded woman want? Finally, a historical in the Blaze line. I was pulled in from the prologue right up until the very end. I even found myself rooting for the secondary characters almost as much as Ewan and Brianna. I found the story to be very well written and Ms. Tarr¢s Bound to Please was an excellent choice to be the debut historical in this line. If you are a fan of Scottish Highland romances and/or the Harlequin Blaze line you need to snap this one up before it becomes a collector¢s item.

This is the first book By Hope Tarr that I have read and her beautiful style and depth blew me away. She really puts you right in the time period of her characters and it's delightful to learn the history of the places and people in the story. Historical novels are some of my favorite books to read. Highly recommend.
