5 Best Damon GIFs from The Vampire Diaries

I become slightly obsessed with shows and even created a Facebook show called Books & Binges which covers everything from The Vampire Diaries and True Blood to #FridayReads and other such book-related topics. So as I binge TVD and finally understand all of the Ian Somerholder fuss, I am also dipping my toes into vampire romance books for the first time.



In researching said books, I came across a Damon Salvatore GIF and then, like any good rabbit holes, I ended up on GIFHY when I probably should have been writing. Alas, all is well since that search has enabled me to bring you the five best Damon Salvatore GIFs and my own first attempt to create one. Though the top pic is a bit dark, it is my very first GIF ever!

His expressions though…





And my #1 favorite…


Which one do you like best? Chances are if you love Damon and TVD you may also read vampire romance. If so, comment with any recommends and sign up here to connect with other PNR-loving readers.

The Warrior’s Queen is now available on Amazon & in Kindle Unlimited

Last week the sixth book in the Border Series released as a #1 bestseller in multiple categories on Amazon, and I could not be happier. This story is special to me, the hero, one of my all-time favorites. Graeme was spurned twice–once by Catrina who ended up with Graeme, and the second time in The Earl’s Entanglement.

I’ve also just released a new bonus to go along with the book, so if you are a CM Insider, either navigate to the ‘Border Bonus’ link or look for it in your next newsletter. Here’s a little sample:

Some readers worry about jumping into the 6th book in a series, but each Border Series book can be read as a standalone. Fans of Scottish romance, medieval romance set in England and Scotland and forced marriage stories will especially interested in this particular tale of two people who are caught in one passionate kiss that changes everything. The tagline:

A stolen kiss. A forced marriage. Can a Scottish chief and English lady learn to love each other?

Readers can grab ‘The Warrior’s Queen’ for $2.99 during release week and then at $3.99 on Amazon. For those in Kindle Unlimited, simply navigate over and start reading! And don’t forget to let me know what you think.

Poll: Why do you love Highlander romance heros?

I have a confession.

Technically, I do not write Highlanders. The Border Series is set along the Anglo-Scottish borders, so heros like the Toren, chief of Clan Kerr, do not speak with a Scottish brogue. In fact, he doesn’t even wear a kilt (gasp!) which comes along a few hundred years after my stories in the 13th century. And yet, everyone refers to them as Highlanders, and I myself imagine Toren and Alex in a kilt while I’m writing. This is the beauty of historical romance. With s sprinkle of historical fiction and a healthy dose of romance, the books aim to entertain, transport readers back to another time and place and, despite the fact that my Scottish heroes would have been more like their English neighbors to the south their their northern brethren, the idea of a Highland hero persists.

Which leads me to wonder, what is it exactly about these Highlander heroes anyway?

  1. I have read all these books and have them. Yes Medieval will always be my favorite time to read. You didn’t have Secret by Julie Garwood in this group of books. I was wondering if you have a P>O> Box so I could get you to sign my book labels for your books I bought of yours. I really would appreciate it.

    • Hi Debi…I LOVE The Secret and actually just re-read it recently. I will email you on the label. So glad you found my books and enjoyed!
