Dear highland listeners

If hunky highlanders falling in love with sassy, opinionated lassies, beautifully performed by narrators, who know their stuff, are your cup of tea, you have come to the right place.

By now, I must have listened to dozens of highland romance audiobooks and can say without a doubt in my mind that there’s nothing more romantic than a man in kilt fighting for his true love or the other way around. I have always enjoyed listening to audiobooks, especially historical romance. I just love to close my eyes, to listen to the narrator, and let him/her carry me far, far away. Like probably every lover of romance novels, I just need a place to take off to, whenever the walls are closing in. I like this place to be filled with well-described characters, people who love and appreciate each other, the fight for true love, and a thrilling story that keeps me listening. If you are a highland listener yourself, I hope, this blog will offer you useful advice on what to listen to next. I’m looking very much forward to listening to more highland romance audiobooks as well as writing about them. Feel free to comment and share my reviews and posts.

Yours sincerely

PS: I just published my first Book!

For readers embracing the Danish way of celebrating a cosy Christmas – a quirky funny Christmas romance about wishes coming true and finding love at last …

As a child, Gitte wished for only one thing: the perfect boyfriend. Every year she wrote a letter addressed to Father Christmas. When her mother fell ill, Gitte dropped everything to stay close to her family including her dreams of living abroad. Years later, Gitte still lives in her hometown Roskilde. Her childhood wish comes back to haunt her when she meets Lukas, a former classmate and shipwright at the Viking Ship Museum. Although Lukas is the shy silent type, he is determined to help Gitte to overcome her fears of abandonment.

“Hi there, nice day for a swim!” I said cheerfully. Under my breath, I added, “When you’re a polar bear.”
“Let me help you up,” he said as if I hadn’t said anything.
I took the offered hand. It was large in my own. A rush of excitement pumped through my veins. So, I forgot to let go when I stood on my own feet. He was tall, more than a head taller than me, and I wasn’t short. The faintest hint of red coloured his cheeks.
“Gitte, there’s a lot of sand on your butt,” Bitte interrupted my perusal of Sexy Madman.

This novel is filled with Danish Christmas traditions like dancing around the Christmas tree. Catch the magic of Christmas in Denmark’s most romantic city, Roskilde.
