Description de l’éditeur
Beginning with The Dreamer, May McGoldrick’s Highland Treasure Trilogy captures the lives and loves of three Scottish sisters.
Now meet Laura…the Enchantress.
The three Percy sisters hold the secret to a long-lost treasure, coveted by the Lord Deputy of England. Each sister escapes England via a different route.
Fleeing persecution from the English king, level-headed Laura took shelter in the Highlands of Scotland. But when she found herself abducted by the fearsome Laird of Blackfearn, all her well-made plans were torn asunder. His reckless and wild ways left Laura burning in his wake - and awakened in her a passion as untamed as his own….
The second installment in McGoldrick's Highland Treasure trilogy begins with 16th-century high-action drama. Laura Percy has been in secret residence in various remote corners of the Scottish Highlands ever since her father was killed for defying the king of England. William Ross of Blackfearn, the reckless brother of a church provost, is sent to find the refugee and deliver her into their clan's protection. But just as William arrives to snatch the unsuspecting Laura, so have a sinister crew who are after a treasure to which Laura is connected. William finally snatches the heroine and brings her to Blackfearn Castle, where she finds work making lace. Though William resists the attraction he feels for Laura, he eventually succumbs to his desires. Through Laura, he begins to accept his responsibilities to his family and people. The romance is tender, and the narrative is enhanced by strong secondary characters, but the book's intrigue plot stalls in order to be resolved in the trilogy's final book.
