Blog Tour Spotlight, Playlist & Giveaway: Deception of a Highlander by Madeline Martin!

Title: Deception of a Highlander
Author: Madeline Martin
Publisher: Diversion Books
Release Date: April 28th, 2015

About the Book:

Scottish Romance doesn’t get much steamier—or more dangerous—than a spy hunting her quarry, and losing her heart to him instead.

To pay a seemingly impossible debt, Mariel Brandon has become a spy for Aaron, one of England’s deadliest minds. Aaron’s latest mission for the sharp-witted and daring Mariel is to find two people in a heavily fortified castle on the Isle of Skye, a castle headed by the clan MacDonald and the powerful Kieran. Mariel is to seduce Kieran and get him to take her to Skye. If she succeeds, Aaron promises to let Mariel’s young brother go, and to free both of them from their debt. If she fails, her brother will die.

What she doesn’t count on is craving Kieran MacDonald almost immediately upon meeting him. Now Mariel must keep a secret from Kieran—one that could get them both killed—as she tries to form a plan that will save her brother, get her out from under Aaron’s thumb once and for all, and keep her in Kieran’s strong arms forever.


Fever Ray – Keep the Streets Empty for Me

This one always made me think of Mariel’s rough start in life and her road down learning fighting skills. When I’d listen to this, I’d imagine her stalking down the poorer streets of London, battered from her training and burning with angst inside at wanting to be free and being trapped into something she doesn’t want to do.

Peder - White Lilies (not a video so much as just the song)

This also made me think of Mariel because the swaying tune is just so sultry seductive sounding. I could imagine her walking into a room with the kind of sexy confidence that turns every head.

Band of Skulls - Sweet Sour

This always made me think of Kieran. It’s one of those quiet badass songs. I could see him crossing his arms over his chest and narrowing his eyes at a room of people in silent contemplation.

Papa Roach – Scars

This also reminds me a Kieran because he’s a battle-scarred warrior. It also gave me a fabulous idea for my manuscript, but I can’t go into detail because it would reveal too much. Guess you’ll have to just read it. #ShamelessPromo

Loreena McKennitt – La Serenissima (again, really just music, not the video)

This made me think of their time on the Isle of Skye in one of their more quiet moments, where it was just the two of them and the attraction humming between them. It’s beautiful and haunting and sexy.
