Character Crush: Kieran Kilburn of Temptation In Tarton


Character Crush
Because Authors Have Crushes Too!


1.  What
attracts you to Kieran and why is he your character crush?
Kieran Kilburn, known as The Great Laird, is and has it all. Though
he was born the younger son to the laird of Clan Kilborn, Kier had to assume
leadership of his clan unexpectedly when his father and older brother were
killed at Culloden Moor in 1746. Though steeped in grief, he led his clan
though the difficult years of the Clearances with intelligence and honor.
And he’s a vampire.
And he’s hot.
I look for four traits in any man I meet. I call them my “four Ss”:
sweet, smart, soulful and sexy. Kieran ticks all four boxes—indeed, all my
heroes do 🙂
2.  What
is Kieran’s life mantra?
Blood for the clan. That is also Clan Kilburn’s motto.
3.   What
actor or actress resembles Kieran?
A younger Ralph Fiennes (see attached pic). I also felt that the
cover artist captured Kieran’s rugged good looks perfectly (attached book
cover)
4.  What
has been the biggest conflict in Kieran’s life?
His marriage to a Sassenach noblewoman, Lydia Swann Williston,
created a number of conflicts—most notably: how can he have an honest
relationship with the woman he loves if she doesn’t know he’s a vampire?
5.  Use
the first three words that pop into your mind to describe Kieran.
Smart, sexy, bold

6.   Does Kieran believe in
revenge? If so, how did he get it?

Kieran
believes in revenge, but more importantly, he believes in protecting family and
clan.   When his wife, the Lady Lydia, was
attacked, he tore the head off her assailand and drank his blood.
 He really
isn’t someone you want to mess with.
7.   Someone
tries to rob Kieran on the street. What does he do? What is he carrying
that the robbers might want? Is it a random incident or was he targeted?


Kieran did study in Glasgow and Edinburgh as a youth, and indeed was
accosted more than once based on his reputation as the son of the laird of a
wealthy clan. Though he is capable with claymore and sword, on the dirty,
cobbled streets of Edinburgh he needed his only his fists, being a tall,
well-built man. If necessary, however, he could draw a knife or his
sgian dhu.
 8.  What
is the worst romantic relationship Kieran has ever had?
Before the deaths of his father and brother, Kieran swived any
willing woman. Among them was Moira Kilborn who, after Kieran married another,
allowed the jealousy in her heart to fester until she attempted to hurt Lady
Lydia. That attempt led to some unfortunate results, which you can read in Temptation in Tartan.
