To Weave a Highland Tapestry by Mary Morgan πŸ’• Guest Post, Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway πŸ’• (Time-Travel Romance)



Patrick MacFhearguis, hardened by battles won and lost, desires what he can never have—peace within his heart and soul. Yet, the ever-meddling Fae weave a new journey for him to conquer—a task this highlander is determined to resist.

When skilled weaver, Gwen Hywel, is commissioned to create a tapestry for the MacFhearguis clan, she embraces the assignment. While seeking out ideas, she finds herself clutching the one thread that can alter the tapestry of her life and heart.

A man conflicted by past deeds. A woman with no family of her own. Is it possible for love to unravel an ancient past, in order to claim two badly scarred hearts? Or will the light of hope be doused forever?


Five Reasons You Should Read My Book TO WEAVE A HIGHLAND TAPESTRY

1. You are transported to Scotland and visit not one, but two Scottish castles! One is my fictional castle called, LeΓ²mhann, and the other is Urquhart Castle—home of the Dragon Knights of Scotland.

Psst…I’ll share an important fact with you. I’ve visited Urquhart two years ago and spent almost four hours wandering the ruins. Pure bliss!

2. You will learn some interesting facts on how to remove an arrow barb in a shoulder. The hero, Patrick MacFhearguis (a 13th century highlander) is injured and part of the arrow is embedded in his shoulder. Not an easy task to witness for the heroine, Gwen Hywel, who is from the present century.

3. You get to experience a 13th Midwinter feast at Urquhart Castle. The MacKay clan (Dragon Knights) love to celebrate—from family, friendships, and love. This feast will spark something wonderful within Patrick MacFhearguis.

4. You will meet an ancient Fae weaver. She imparts words of wisdom for the heroine, Gwen Hywel. Yet often times with the Fae, the messages have mixed meanings.

5. Not only is this story about a tapestry being commissioned for the Winter Solstice, but a love story based on what happens when you grasp a single golden thread and dare to take a leap of faith.

I challenge you, dear readers, to fall in love this holiday season with Patrick and Gwen’s magical love story!



“Where is the pain?”
“It’s tolerable.” She refused to appear weak, returning the same remark he had shared with her earlier. 
Patrick reached for her hand. His warmth and strength seeped through her skin. “Place both your hands against the bark with your feet some distance apart.” 
“And why am I doing this?” 
The beginning of a smile tipped the corners of his mouth. “Trust me, lass. Ye are in pain from riding stiffly for many hours.” 
For reasons she couldn’t fathom, Gwen had faith in the man. Removing her hand from his, she did as he instructed. 
His presence loomed from behind her. “If ye will permit me, I shall roll my knuckles along your back.”
Heat flared instantly up her neck, but Gwen nodded, giving him permission. 
When the first contact of his fist swept across her back, Gwen let out a moan. Pain and pleasure fought for dominance. She closed her eyes against the sensation of his healing and seductive touch, allowing her body to ease from its rigid position. 
“Let your limbs relax,” he urged. 
“Feels so good,” she mumbled. 
He splayed his fingers and massaged the knots along the column of her neck. Delicious pinpricks trickled down her back, along with the melting snow on her head. Gwen knew she presented a wretched sight, but she gave no care. His fingers caressed the top of her spine, and wove their way down to both shoulders. By the time he finished, her body was on fire with another type of ache, but her muscles had loosened up. There was no denying the man ignited a spark within her. 
Gwen turned around slowly. 
He placed his hand above her on the tree, trapping her against the rough bark with his body. Lowering his head near her ear, he whispered. “Better?” 
The word had her breathing rapidly. Gwen did the unthinkable and pressed her cheek against him—his beard grazing her face. “Yes.”
“Good,” he breathed the word against her skin and withdrew. 
He held her captive with the intensity of his gaze—compelling and magnetic. She had contained her inner woman within a cocoon for so long she yearned to be set free. If this was a distorted nightmare, she was determined to leave it on a positive experience. 
When neither made a move to part, the butterfly emerged. Gwen lifted her hand and cupped his cheek. His eyes darkened as he turned his face into her palm, pressing his warm lips against her skin. A new and unexpected heat rushed inside her, and she gasped with the pleasure. 

Patrick took a step back, breaking their connection. A slash of wind slapped across her face, cooling the heat of their encounter. 

  



Laird Cormac Murray has witnessed how love destroyed his own father after the death of his mother, and he vows to never take a wife. Yet, when he comes upon a bewildered lass traveling alone, he finds his heart will no longer listen to his mind. In the end, Cormac risks everything to claim the love of a woman not of his time.

Eve Brannigan loves helping others and baking. After winning a contest, she is stunned to learn that the Clan Murray has requested her assistance to cater to their guests during the holiday season. When a lost path in Scotland leads her to a handsome but gruff Highlander, Eve fights the temptation to allow love to enter her heart for the first time.

Can the Fae and the magic of the Yule season bring together two souls who have forsaken love? Or will tragedies from the past separate the lovers forever?

  



Irish warrior, Desmond O’Quinlan has never surrendered his heart to any woman. He has no wish to have his soul tortured by love. Yet, the moment he locks gazes with Ailsa, his fate is destined for an adventure he never fathomed. He may have battled alongside a Dragon Knight, but his greatest challenge will come from within his own heart.

Ailsa MacDuff, a warrior among her clan, has no desire to have a man chain her to a life of obedience. However, that is before she meets Desmond. The temptation to allow this warrior inside her heart is a risk she dares to take, but one that could lead to a future of emptiness and sorrow.

When betrayal looms from within, the battleground of love is no match for these two warriors. Can the power of a Highland full moon be strong enough to unite or destroy them?
