Editorial Reviews

Review

Claire will break your heart, while Cameron will steal it. You definitely won't want to miss how this whisky distiller opens the heart and mind of his teetotaler.
The Naughty Librarians Blog

Donna MacMeans weaves a story full of passion, twists, and unexpected turns that makes you cheer for the unlikely couple every step of the way.
The author creates a tantalizing conflict of interests between hero and heroine and manages to keep the level of tension tight and intriguing throughout the novel. I loved the ingenious kissing scene between Cameron and Claire that is not only tantalizing but also shows how each character has changed through their connection to each other.

On the edge of my seat through the whole book, waiting for the inevitable to happen...and oh so glad when it did! ~ Rosalie Belle, Guilty Pleasures 

Twists and turns abound and leave you on the edge of your seat for these two characters. A wonderful historical love story that left me teary eyed.

From the Author

I hope you enjoyed THE WHISKY LAIRD'S BED.  I love researching my historical novelsto bring as much accuracy to my time period as possible.  For that reason, I'd like to share withyou what's real and what is not.
 
The information regarding the production of whisky is accurate,including the spelling of the word, "whisky."  Americans and the Irish add an "e" to the word, but inScotland, the proper spelling is whisky.As the majority of The Whisky Laird's Bed is placed in Scotland, I've usedthe Scottish spelling throughout to maintain consistency.  Also in Scotland, the drink itself isreferred to as whisky, not Scotch.During my time period, scotch was aged in used sherry wine casks fromSpain.  For various reasons, afterthe 1930s, a switch was made to age scotch in used American Bourbon whiskeybarrels, and that practice continues today.  In 1891, however, this was not the case.
 
My fictional town of Beckmore is situated in the centralhighlands area of Scotland.  Myvision of Beckmore was based on the existing towns of Pitlochry and Callanderwhich I've visited as part of my research.
 
While fictional, Ravenswoods Castle is based on the floor plan ofthe Dall Estate which is located on Loch Rannoch in Scotland.  Ossian's Cave is a true folly built asa hermit's cave in the Hermitage, a park protected by the National Trust ofScotland.  Ossian was a legendaryCeltic warrior in the third century.A book of poems was published in 1760 attributed to Ossian and"translated" by James Macpherson.It's generally believed, however, that Macpherson wrote the very popularworks and just attributed them to Ossian.
 
The Temperance movement and Carrie Nation, hatchet and all aretrue.  I did invent some of theslogans, though.  W. T. Stead did,in fact, publish an article about white slavery.  Certain elements of his research were decried as scandalous,but the existence of women lured to London under false pretenses was viable.
 
The late nineteenth century represented exciting times for thephotography industry.  In 1888,Eastman Kodak introduced a camera that used film instead of the glass plate fornegatives.  The Kodak browniecamera made photography available to the mass market in 1901.  However, the camera that would havebeen discovered in the attic would predate these events.  I've used some of my own darkroomexperience in describing the process of developing negatives.
 
I hope you enjoyed reading THE WHISKY LAIRD'S BED as much as Ienjoyed writing and researching it.I love hearing from readers and invite you to contact me at DonnaMacMeans.com  and on Facebook as Donna MacMeans,Author.
