Really fun historical. SHE is the Laird. He's an Englishman who has been kidnapped and must marry her.
Strong characters and good supporting characters make this book really interesting.
A Secret Room and, once again, the Englishman will save the clan by the selling of Scots Whiskey, but altogether a good read.
Loved the story. English versus Scots always promises a good story line.
Seduction is. . . A Reluctant Suitor
As an officer of the Royal Corps of Engineers, it was my responsibility to construct His Majesty's highland stronghold.
Although duty brought me to Scotland, I longed to return to London and my work as an architect. But I was suddenly abducted -- not for ransom, but for marriage! I'd been chosen to wed The MacInnes -- sworn enemy of the King.
I had no intentions of wedding any woman, and certainly not an enemy of the Crown.
But Lady Jessalyn MacInnes was breathtaking, and
she fired my blood like no other had.
Destroyed by war and poverty, her clan consisted only of women, children and old men, but she was devoted to its welfare, and sorely needed my help to rebuild. I had been tricked into marriage, but the thought of creating a new life with my bride soon became quite tempting. . .
-- Neil Claremont,
Earl of Derrowford
I did not read this, but according to the cover it is "Sexy, funny, and tender."
