THE DOUGLAS LEGACY
The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family's bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when their enemies strike, each Douglas lass will find she's been left to face them alone.
CLAIMED BY A HIGHLANDER
Lady Sybil Douglas's fall from court favorite to royal enemy is swift after her brothers are charged with treason and flee Scotland. When a strange Highland warrior appears claiming they are bound by a marriage contract, she's desperate enough to ride off with him. She'll worry later about how to escape the wedding.
The last thing Rory MacKenzie needs is a pampered Lowlander wife. He traveled to Edinburgh in the hope of dissolving the ill-begotten marriage contract. But now that the Douglas men have abandoned his would-be bride to danger, he's honor-bound to protect her.
Sybil and Rory fight scorching passion and other dangers on their journey to the MacKenzie castle, where murder and intrigue await them. When everything is at risk, will they trust each other and their unexpected love?
Entertaining, great history ,romantic
I found the weave between real life and fiction made the story more amazing. Connected with the characters and absolutely enjoyed reading the book. Couldn’t put it down. Lovely lovely read!
Claimed by a Highlander
Slow start, but an overall decent read as the political intrigue picks up in the second half. Research is evident in the writing and only has a few typos. However, for some reason the page count resets at chapter 8, events are frequently overexplained, the first half of the book is essentially one long escort mission readers have to get through before Sybil, who is repeatedly damseled throughout the story, does anything interesting, and the author overworks the whole marriage contract ordeal in an attempt at suspense that simply resulted in repetitive reading. It also felt like Sybil’s rape exists more for cheap drama than actually highlighting marital rape as an issue.
