Gerri: As your readers may know, I have been writing in the “Season of” series. The first book was “Season of Magic,” which released last Christmas, my contribution being “The Yuletide Bride.” The second book in the series, “Season of Love,” released in May, 2015, my contribution being “Puppy Love.” Who came up with it? Wish I could take the credit, but it’s the brainchild of Merry Holly (a/k/a Marian Lanouette).
Susan: Please, tell us about your novella Enticed by a Laird?
Gerri: In the first book, “The Yuletide Bride,” Lady Esther Nelson meets Angus McClellen, Laird of the Clan McClellen, and she’s quite taken with him. In the second book, “Puppy Love,” we find that Lady Nelson, no stranger to scandle, has run off to the Highlands with him. Now in the third book, “Enticed by a Laird,” she has returned to London . . . alone. She’s sequestered herself to her chambers and refuses to speak to anyone of what really happened in the Highlands.
Here is a little blurb from the book:
She was an Englishwoman of title, and he a Scottish Laird. He captured her heart from the first moment she laid eyes on him, but would her family ever approve? She knew she should forget him and walk away, but how could she when she’d been enticed by a Laird.
Susan: Where did you get your inspiration?
Gerri: This all started with The Yuletide Bride. A little spark of an idea bloomed into a series. When I first thought of The Yuletide Bride, I never dreamed that the characters would take me this far into their lives.
Susan: What part was the most fun to write?
Gerri: I love telling a story, and when the readers respond that they love reading it, that validates what I do. It gives me great joy to know that my stories give my readers a pleasurable reading experience.
Susan: What makes your characters unique?
Gerri: I pretty much allow them to tell me their story. Two of my characters in Puppy Love, Madeline and Mickey, are actually dogs, and they are central to the story. I have gotten email from a reader asking for mention of the puppies again. Rest assured, you will hear about them in Enticed by a Laird.
Susan: As this is the 3rd in the series, where can we get #1 and #2?
Gerri: Season of Magic and Season of Love are both available on Amazon AND Barnes and Noble.

Susan: What is next on your horizon, Gerri?
Gerri: I working on the fourth and final story in my Season of series. I’m also presently working on a story I call, Hidden Treasure, which is the sequel to my pirate story, A Pirate’s Ransom. I have several stories waiting to be told and which story gets written depends largely on which character speaks the loudest. You never know what I’ll come up with next.
