#AuthorLife with Tara Kingston

Dec 1, 2017 by


My new book, Lady Evelyn’s Highland Protector, launches this week, and I’m very excited to see this love story take its bow. I thought I’d share a look back at my life as an author while writing this book:


1)  The joy of deadlines…





2)  Keeping up with working out while finishing a book…





3)  Reading…when I should be writing…





4)  When someone tells me they don’t like to read…





5)  When a hero makes me swoon…





6)  When someone interrupts me while I’m writing…





7)  What my cats are doing while I’m writing…





8)  When you’re plotting your book and you figure out a crucial twist…





9)  A sigh-worthy happy ending…





10)  When your editor loves your book…



Be sure to check out Tara’s new release, Lady Evelyn’s Highland Protector!






A Highlander’s vow…Scottish spy Gerard MacMasters never expected to be playing bodyguard in his mission to catch a killer. Stunning English beauty, Lady Evelyn Hunt, has witnessed a merciless assassin’s escape—now, she’s in danger, and it’s up to him to keep her alive. Yet, he is drawn to the tempting woman. Passion flares, but he knows better than to fall for her. He’s already lost one woman he loved—never again will he put his heart on the line.

She shields her heart…After a crushing betrayal at the altar, Lady Evelyn wants nothing to do with love. Kissing a gorgeous rogue is one thing, but surrendering her heart is another matter. When she stumbles upon a mysterious crime, nothing prepares her for the dashing Scot who charges into her life. The hot-blooded Highlander may be her hero—or her undoing.




Award-winning author Tara Kingston writes romance laced with intrigue, danger, and adventures of the heart. A Southern Navy brat transplanted to a quaint Pennsylvania town, she lives her own love story with her real-life hero in a cozy Victorian. The mother of two sons, Tara’s a former librarian whose love of books is evident in her popping-at-the-seams bookcases and collection of unusual bookmarks. It goes without saying that Tara’s husband is thankful for the invention of digital books, thereby eliminating the need for yet another bookcase. When she’s not writing, reading, or burning dinner, Tara enjoys cycling, hiking, and cheering on her favorite football team. Learn more about Tara at www.tarakingston.com.
