Now in one volume: The complete historical romance saga—from the Scottish Highlands to the Court of Versailles—by an international-bestselling author.
The Macdonald Romances collection brings together two Scottish tales of passion, intrigue, and love by Evelyn Anthony.
Clandara: It’s unthinkable—but beautiful, headstrong Katharine Fraser has fallen in love with the eldest son of her father’s longtime enemy. Notorious nobleman James Macdonald of Dundrenan is ready to sacrifice all for the woman he loves. But the fated struggle to restore the prince to the throne results in a fiery call to arms across Scotland—and a tragedy that threatens to divide the star-crossed lovers. As James vows to fight against the invading British Army, Katharine must follow her own path, even as it leads her into the arms of another man, far from the heart of her true desires and her beloved home of Clandara.
The French Bride: To settle his gambling debts and avoid being sent to the Bastille, Charles Macdonald is given an ultimatum: He must marry his cousin, the beautiful, innocent Anne de Bernard—who also happens to be the richest woman in France. However, the dissolute Charles wants only to return to the bed of his mistress, the Baroness Louise de Vitale. When Anne is brought to Versailles at the king’s command, the inexperienced bride is no match for Louise’s wiles. As two women fight for the love of one man, a deadly intrigue will unfold that could destroy one life as it transforms another.
Set against a rich historical canvas—from eighteenth-century Scotland to the French Courts—and peopled by such real-life figures as Bonnie Prince Charlie, King Louis XV, Madame du Barry, and future queen Marie Antoinette, the Macdonald Romances are prize-winning Anthony at her spellbinding best.
