Saturday, November 18, 2017


Have I ever mentioned I LOVE historical romances--and particularly when they have handsome Scottish Lords and even stronger Scottish lasses?

David Hume storms the castle bent on revenge! He is going to force the lady to marry him. She has finally been freed from a horrible husband and has her 2 little daughters to protect--as well as all in the castle--no help is coming from anywhere!!
She surrenders---or does she? Not without a fight!! Meanwhile her two little daughters have captured David's heart--and he swears to protect them.

Will these two ever learn to trust and love each other? You will have to read this book to find out--it is a tumultuous road!!

You know I will be reading the other books in this series--really a great read!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

THE DOUGLAS LEGACY
The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family’s bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when powerful enemies threaten, each Douglas lass will find she must face them alone.

CAPTURED BY A LAIRD
Haunted by his father’s violent death, David Hume, the new laird of Wedderburn, sets out to make his name so feared that no one will dare harm his family again. The treacherous ally who played on his father’s weakness is dead and beyond David's vengeance, but his castle and young widow are ripe for the taking. The moment David lays eyes on the dark-haired beauty defending her wee daughters, however, he knows this frail-looking lass is the one person who could bring him to his knees.

Wed at thirteen to a man who tried daily to break her spirit, Lady Alison Douglas is looking forward to a long widowhood. But when the fearsome warrior known as the Beast of Wedderburn storms her gates, she finds herself, once again, forced to wed a stranger. Alison is only a pawn to serve his vengeance, so why does this dark warrior arouse such fiery passion and an unwelcome longing in her heart?

With death and danger looming, these two wounded souls must learn to trust each other…for only love can save them.

About the Author: (from Amazon)


Margaret Mallory, a recovering lawyer, is thrilled to be writing adventurous tales with sword-wielding heroes rather than briefs and memos. Since abandoning the law for romance, she's become a USA Today bestselling author, and her Scottish and medieval romances have won numerous honors, including National Readers' Choice Awards, RT Book Reviews' Best Scotland-Set Historical Romance, and a RITA© nomination.

Margaret lives with her husband in the beautiful (and rainy) Pacific Northwest. Now that her children are off on their own adventures, she spends most of her time with her handsome Highlanders, but she also likes to hike and travel. You can find information about Margaret’s books, photos of Scotland, historical tidbits, and links to Margaret on Facebook and Twitter on her website, www.MargaretMallory.com. She loves to hear from readers!

This book sounds like a wonderful read. I, too, love historical (almost any kind) of book. Romances are so easy and pleasing to read, add that to the history and I'll be drawn in till the very end.
