More About the Author

In the beginning, God said, Let there be light...
Several thousand years later, after many eons of famine, pestilence, war, and police actions (that we all know were wars the government couldn't sell us on), God the Father said, "The world needs more righteous humor and romance. Let Mary McCall be born."
God the Son said, "Dad, it's my turn. Let her words bring joy and inspiration to the masses. I am placing a pencil in her hand."
God the Holy Ghost chuckled. "I'm topping both of you. I'm inspiring the invention of the internet to spread spam, email jokes, time-draining games, and otherwise confuse the masses. And in that world, all authors, including Mary, will have to promote their books. Who's got humor now?"
Thus, on a cold December 31st four minutes before midnight in the Texas Panhandle on Reese Air Force Base near Lubbock, Mary was born to Robert Duncan McCall and Minnie Stone Fulcher McCall. Lt. McCall wiped his brow and grinned at his wife. "Thank goodness you timed that well. She's a tax deduction for the whole year."
After that, she cost her parents tons of money. She began with crayons on the walls, furniture and floors. Her parents saw that wasn't good and surrounded her with tons of butcher paper. By the time she turned three, she was a reporter. She told her parent about her brother breaking the glass on the coffee table, about her younger sister painting the bathroom with shaving cream, and about her older sister ironing her hair. Her parents saw that wasn't good and explained the difference between being a reporter and being a snitch.
Onward Mary grew until she was quite verbose. She wrote poems, book reports, research papers, satires and just about anything she could think of. Since she was using paper and pencils/pens, her parents saw this as good. Unfortunately, Mary didn't like French. So when her high school French teacher gave her an A for paper on the Eifel Tower that she didn't write, she took the A and kept her mouth shut. Over the years, Mary spent many hours in the confessional.
Eventually, Mary wrote for nurses, business people, hospitals, doctors, psychology professionals, spiritual people and just about anyone else who wanted to read her words. This landed her for a time in Who's Who in Nursing and Who's Who in Business Professionals. Everyone kept telling her that she should write fiction, because she had a storytelling flair to her non-fiction, making it easy to read.
An avid reader, she finally decided to try her hand at it. When her serial-killer who ritualistically terminated his victims according to the Passion of Christ turned into a romance, Mary decided she wasn't going to be the author of the next Cherry Ames detective series and she would write historical romances instead.
Once she wanted to write a TV series about her dating life called, Mary Fills a Monastery, but Will & Grace came out the same year, so she decided the timing wasn't right and got a new dog.
In addition to writing, Mary loves to read old Latin manuscripts, learn new & trivial historical facts, and sing. While she likes to sing melody, God's humor extended to her larynx, and she's a true contralto. She can also sing Ole' Man River in the original key, so go figure. Her favorite music is Ambrosian and Gregorian Chant and early polyphony. Her favorite composers are Palestrina, Mozart, Fr. Fredrick Faber, Billy Joel, and Elton John. Oh, and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. She never writes a love scene without The Phantom of the Opera playing in the background. Her favorite cyber playground is the Julie Garwood Bulletin Board with like-minded wenches, and her yahoo groups at too-numerous-to-count.

Mary's favorite author:
Simon (aka: Peter): no last name. He was a Jewish fisherman but ended up in Rome.

I absolutely loved Highland Treasure by Mary McCall. It is an amazing book, with tons of LOL moments and few crying my heart out passages. This is more than just a Highland romance. It's a story of vengeance and redemption.

Let's talk about our H and h....

Hope, all I can say is wow! She was bloody awesome. She risked her life to save a boy she didn't know and bring a clan that hated her, their much needed Justice. She had a miserable life. A sadistically abusive father, total isolation, and lack of real home all molded Hope into a warrior woman. She also had a little gift, but I will let you discover what it is on your own.

Leonce is an awesome Highland hero. He is laird of the Clan McPherson, after his father and brothers were butchered by Hope's father. He wanted justice for his clan, but he was not willing to use a vulnerable woman as his tool. Leonce was wonderful man, but he could also be hard headed and had a quick temper. He's my favorite kind of alpha male. He was a proud man, devoted father, but above all else, he was Hope's Lion.

The story was fast paced, exciting, and original. The original part is what earned Highland Treasure a place on coveted place on my five star wall. I love historical romances, but I often feel as if I am reading the same story over and over. This book was definitely a breath of fresh air.

Let's talk about all that hot Highland loving.

This book was smoking!!! The sex was hot, without being overly erotic. There was a lot of sex; even more, talk of sex. But, I never felt like the author was relying on sex to make story. It was just an added bonus.

No book is perfect, and Highland Treasure does have its flaws.

I really enjoyed this book. The female character was strong and fiesty. The lead male character was fierce but not brutal. The other two books are also really good even if I read them out of order, lol. i just want to say one thing. Mary McCall needs to get on the ball. I'm a fan and am looking forward to another great book.

I enjoyed this book, but not as much as the sequel: "Highland Captive"

In Highland Treasure, the hero was rather sweet for such a warrior, and the heroine was beautiful and spirited yet vulnarable, I liked them both. But while I liked Hope's quirkiness, she was a bit too rough for my taste. This story also had wonderful moments of humor. SPOILER ALERT TO FOLLOW: I just do not like it when the heroine is scarred, and in this book there is not just one, but several scars, thus I decided to take a star away.

I debated between a 2 and 3 stars. I almost didn't finish it. At about 55 - 60% thru the book I had to force myself to finish. At about 70 - 75% thru the book it got a little better and then she killed it again at the end. I am not sure how this author won any awards if this book is an example. I also think friends and family reviewed this think to give it most of the good ratings it has. Parts of the book were ok, and it could have been a decent book, but the heroine really destroyed it. One reviewer wrote that they though this book was written by a 13 year old drama queen. They are not far off. I think instead of it being written by one, that it heroine acts like one. Hope has had a horrible upbringing. She was abused, and saw who she thinks is her father, basically gut her mother and take her heart. She was lived in a cave since she was 11 to get away from her father. She is crude and rude because of the way she was raised. Not what I like in a heroine. Her interactions with the hero Leonce are she yells and challenges him in front of his clan and his neighbors, and shows him no respect. We are supposed to think this is cute and she is a strong female. Do we really think a highland Chief will put up with that. Then when Leonce isn't paying her enough attention, she goes off and plays one of her games. She can't play her usual games, because Leonce told her no. Her usual games are things like boar-bait or wolf bait, which are games where she baits an animal and kills it by hand. She calls it winning. So instead she runs off and plays highlander. She says she is forming her own clan the MacFury and steals hers neighbors animals and rides around with only with a plaid on. She is waiting for her husband to come home so, she can play lion-bait. Leonce is called lion.Read more ›

I loved this book. I loved the hero, the heroine, the animals, the magic, the friends, the humor, and most of all the endearingly sweet love story. It has everything you could want in a epic love story. Hope, the heroine was funny, sweet, and so special that I wanted to become her best friend. Leonce the hero was so protective and loving; he's everything a hero should be. The other characters worm their way into your heart with ease especially Bertie and Diablo (who is a horse BTW). I have this book on kindle and ordered it on paperback because I loved it so much. I couldn't stand to say goodbye to these characters! I've read this story over and over again along with her other two books. She is now counted among my most favorite historical authors which include the likes of Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood. There are some grammar and editing problems but they weren't really enough for me to care about. I'm telling you have to try read this book! Its my favorite out of all of them. I now have my sister hooked on this author and she has read all of her books as well. Her and I both CAN NOT WAIT for her next book. This story will be in my forever library and not many books make it there. ;) Thank you Mary for writing such a special story. If anyone hasn't tried this author, please do so...you will not regret it!!
