An Interview with Karyn Gerrard
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Karyn, thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is My Highland Cover Model. Where did you get the initial idea for this sizzling romance?
KG: I wrote a book last year, My Vampire Cover Model with Decadent Publishing, and thought what other kind of hero would I love to see in ‘cover model’ mode? Highlander came to mind. One of my favorite type heroes. Not sure there will be anymore in this series, but I always keep my options open!
HH: What will readers like about Skye?
KG: Skye is a passionate woman and though very sensible, she finds herself utterly charmed and aroused by the man within the cover model body. I think people will like she opens her heart and her mind to the possibility a highlander did actually travel through time.
HH: Why will readers love Cailin?
KG: Where do I start? I love him myself. Honorable, passionate, funny, and did I mention he wields a large sword? :)¬†¬† Cailin is literally snatched out of the middle of a battle, we see he is a fierce warrior and loves his family deeply and will protect them at any cost. Though it takes no time at all to fall in love Skye, what lengths will he take to keep her love? Highlander hero all the way.
HH: What sort of research went into this book?
KG: When people think of Highlanders, they think anytime between 1100 and 1600 AD. I wanted my Highlander to be a little closer in time than that. So I did a little research into The Clearances, which is when landowners drove off families from the Highlands to graze sheep. I decided to have my hero come from that place in history, in the early 1800’s. It was a blast to create his back-story.
HH: What do you like best about the time-travel twist in this story?
KG: Thanks to druid magic, Cailin travels through time, but lands in someone else’s body! That’s something I hadn’t done before. Again, it was a lot of fun.
HH: What else can readers look forward to from you?
KG: I have three releases coming up (at the time of this writing)
HEART OF ROCK from Decadent Publishing rock star romance set in the early 1970’s
THE GOVERNESS AND THE BEAST from Decadent Publishing Historical Victorian erotic romance with a dash of BDSM and a scarred hero
BLACK SCAR Book 4 of my paranormal series with Evernight Publishing Scarred hero, tortured Vamps! Hot read!
HH: Will you be attending any special events this year live or online?
KG: Unfortunately, no. I live in a small town in Northern Canada. Travel to a lot of these events is near impossible for me.
HH: What hobbies or interests do you have outside of your writing?
KG: Reading to be sure. I also love the Red Sox, watch every game if I can. Traveling is also a big part of my life and something I enjoy.
HH: What's your favorite quote ever?
KG: Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.¬† Charles Dickens
HH: What's your favorite social media and how to use it to let readers know about your books?
KG: Twitter. I am on there more than Facebook. I tweet a lot about my new and upcoming releases and other things that interest me. Follow me! @KarynGerrard
HH: Thank you!
