More About the Author

Leanne grew up in Wisconsin. She and her husband lived in South Carolina for several years while he was stationed there in the Navy. She and her husband of almost forty-one years now live in Florida. They have one daughter, one son and daughter-in-law, one grandson, three granddaughters and a new grandchild on the way. God and her family are the most important things in her life.

Having worked at three newspapers within the state of Florida, she loved the entire creative process. Her forte was editing.

She enjoys reading, writing, and traveling. She traveled to Norway to do research for an upcoming Viking epic. The year before, she traveled to Ireland, where she fell in love with the beautiful countryside and its Viking history. She's also traveled to England, Spain, France, Hawaii and Mexico (the Mayans)in search of stories waiting to be told! Her absolute favorite place to visit, however, is the lovely country of Scotland. Its beauty is beyond words, and the friendliness of its people is incomparable. In Florida, she can often be found at Disney World with her grandchildren (although everyone knows they are merely an excuse for her to visit).

While doing genealogy research for her husband, she fell in love with Scottish history. That led to the novel HIGHLAND WISHES, a historical novel about Scotland's War for Independence. Its sequel, HER HIGHLAND ROGUE, was then released. She currently has several other novels in progress. KEEPER OF MY HEART, a novel about the Battle of Culloden and its aftermath is her current work in progress. THE POWER AND THE PASSION is the Viking epic. The third story in the Scottish War for Independence trilogy is also being worked on. In addition, Leanne has participated in several anthologies. The first, NO LAW AGAINST LOVE, is a romantic anthology of silly laws still on the books around the world. Proceeds from this anthology are being donated to breast cancer research and treatment. All her books can be viewed at her website.

She is currently a member of the National PEN Women in Letters, Romance Writers of America, Outreach International, Celtic Hearts Romance Writers, Hearts Through History Romance Writers, First Coast Romance Writers, Central Florida Romance Writers, Florida Writers of America, Historical Writers Association and The Mystic Castle.

She welcomes comments from her readers.

I am looking forward to reading the next in the series, Her Highland Rogue.

It has tons of editing errors that are so bad, there are times when you can't understand what is happening.

I've written over 150 reviews on various romance novels. I've never had my reviews removed for any other book. Each time I write a negative review on this book, someone complains to get it removed. I've seen every other negative review on this book removed, except one. I'm so mad that I was fooled into spending $17 on a book because of the all the glowing reviews. Readers have a right to read all of the reviews, not just the positive ones.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

This book was terrible. It has tons of editing errors that are so bad, there are times when you can't understand what is happening. When you can understand, you wish you couldn't. The story is BORING and REPETATIVE. The characters are annoying. The heroine spends the entire book balling her eyes out. ("Tears streaming down her face", "Her tear streaked face", "choking on a sob", "swallowing a sob"....) She turns psycho and hides from her husband, because she thinks he is her dad who abused her as a child. The "hero" finally turns her over his knee, in front of everyone in the castle, and spanks her for misbehaving. This was his way of showing her that his discipline will not be as harsh as her dad's was. There was nothing "romantic" about this story.

I have never in my life read a book with so many grammatical errors. It was unreal. It may have been easier to overlook if the story actually went somewhere...

I love Sue-Ellen Welfonder, one of the best Scottish Historical writers, but I was tickled to get this book as a gift for my birthday. Burroughs captured my attention and kept it from start to finish. This book has the style of old-fashioned saga historical romances. I hope this is a trend coming back. It's so hard to find these.

I am eager to read this author's other works.

I know this is a work of fiction, but to say it is 'historical' is a HUGE stretch!! The way that the author portrayed life in 1296 is not realistic. The lead male character, Grant, is the 'Dr. Phil' of the 13th century. Grant should be a busy laird responsible for his clan at a time Scotland was preparing to fight against the oppression of England. (An ineffective representation of William Wallace is depicted in this book as the legendary freedom fighter appears briefly.) However, Grant seems to have all kinds of free time for therapy sessions with his English prisoner turned wife, encouraging her to 'share' her feelings/experiences. The leading lady, Tory, made repetitive dim-witted decisions that made it hard to respect her character. About 1/8 of the book was dedicated to dragging out every Christmas tradition ever heard of and boring the reader as scenes played out in words. After spending $16.95, I felt an obligation to read this book. If you are a history buff and enjoy works from authors such as Diana Gabaldon, skip this read. IT WAS PAINFUL!!!

I couldn't believe this was the authors first book. From the first page until the last she had you hooked. I couldn't put the book down and was very sorry to see the story end.

The story takes place in Scotland during the time of William Wallace and before Culloden. It is filled with a rich sense of history. The pictures the author paints with her words about that time period makes you feel like you are there and living it with the characters.

The author did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. You felt their pain and their joys. She made you laugh with them and cry with them. I felt like the people in the story were my family.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in history or has a love for Scottish stories. Several of my friends have read my copy and feel the same way. I can not wait for her next book to come out. In fact after reading this book I am finding it very hard to get interested in any other book.

This book is a MUST read.

A friend gave me Highland Wishes for my birthday. She couldn't stop raving about it. I accepted it with thanks and put it on my shelf. While leaving on a business trip, I threw in my bag instead of the book I intended to read. I had not read a medieval Scottish tale since college and I didn't like them then. Unable to get another book 30000 feet up over the Pacific Ocean, I started to read this wonderfully passionate tale. As I winged my way west, I read Highland wishes and was transported to Medieval Scotland.

Victoria (Tori) Blackstone is a wellborn English with a cruel father. She survived in spite of him and is determined to escape his control as well as the control of man he chose for her husband.

Grant is Scottish warrior returned from the Scottish War of Independence to avenge the death of his father at the hands of Gerald Blackstone. He sacks the Blackstone Castle and captures a beautiful, but broken woman, Tori. Grant's need for vengeance grows exponentially as he falls in love with Tori and learns of the cruelty she endured from her father.

As Scotland struggles for independence from England, Grant and Tori struggle and finally win independence and love together.

The research made the setting of time and place come alive. Ms. Burroughs converted this contemporary reader into a historical reader and my husband may never forgive her. On our next move, the US Navy will find several additional crates filled with historicals, and I hope many more books by Leanne Burroughs.
