The fate of the Scottish people and being a warm weather person I was glad this clan ended up in the Carolinas.
Lady Zoe's "unhealthness" was very understandable. So many medical problems were not understood that by protecting a child one could easily do alot of harm.

On a shrouded moor in Culloden, Scotland, Keegan MacLeod watched his brothers die by the sword of the English. When only his father and he remained standing, Keegan vowed to see his father to safety or die trying. But at the promise of an English lord, Keegan dropped his broadsword-- only to watch his father be tortured to death. As for himself, he is awaiting hanging in London. But by a twist of fate he escapes and is on his way back to Scotland. But before he leaves, he intends to kill Lord Foxworth Morgan for his deceit and cruelty. Poor Lady Zoe Morgan is a weak and frail thing. Lucky for her she has Miss Phelps, her nurse and companion to take care of her. But when a wild Scot bursts through the window not even Miss Phelps can save her. Kidnapped by Keegan, Zoe must live long enough to warn her brother Fox who might possibly be in Scotland. Saddled with the constantly complaining Lady Zoe, Keegan questions his judgement in kidnapping her in the first place. But she is the bait that will lead him to her brother. As their adventures progress, Keegan and Zoe change their opinions of each other even as she continually tries to escape. As enemies become allies, their mutual attraction blossoms into passionate love. First in the Renegade, Rebel and Rogue Trilogy, The Renegade and the Rose is a romantic tale about a Scottish renegade and his English rose. The unlikely relationship between Keegan and Zoe is charming and often humorous. Zoe is a little hard to sympathize with early in the book because of her hypochondria, but as the story progresses this rose blooms into a strong, capable woman. This promises to be a special trilogy so don't miss Christine Dorsey's The Renegade and the Rose!An adventurous romp through England and Scotland! Christine Dorsey brings history to life!

This had a heroine who has been raised by her nurse to think she's dying and so this is rather a hilarious thing to read when she gets kidnapped.
