Three romances in one from the USA Today–bestselling author of The Reluctant Highlander, filled with the rebellious passion of Scotland’s restless border.
Set on the turbulent border between Scotland and England in the sixteenth century, these meticulously researched novels offer enthralling love stories set against a backdrop of historical conflict.
In Border Bride, Mary Kate MacPherson, a proud Highland beauty wages a battle against arrogant borderer Sir Adam Douglas. Borderer men may consider their wives possessions, but Mary Kate intends to show the seductive knave her father promised her to that a Highland lass is no man’s furniture.
In Border Fire, highwayman Rabbie Redcloak has caused nothing but trouble for the English with his raiding and fighting. But when he’s captured, Janet Graham is determined to prevent the hanging of the silver-tongued Rabbie before Truce Day. And her decision has nothing to do with the way her body heats just at the thought of him . . .
And in Border Storm, Lady Laurie Halliot, the rebellious daughter of a Scottish march warden, knows what marriage is about: money, power, and little else. When her runaway sister is accused of murdering an English soldier, however, Laurie offers herself as a hostage until the accused is found. And to preserve Laurie’s reputation while in captivity, she agrees to a handfast wedding to the devastatingly handsome, yet equally reluctant, groom, Sir Hugh Graham.
Wonderful story teller. The trilogy was captivating. The stories blended seamlessly. I wish I were more knowledgeable of the geography that she spoke about, but that only added a bit of mystery. Her description of the characters and their emotions was thought provoking and really exceptional. Well done!
I read the first book to the end hoping there would be something redeeming. Nada.
First this lady’s father, then her husband punish her with spanking—and not of a romantic type. Rather, humiliating. This author seems to get off on her heroine being humiliated in other ways as well. Could not bring myself to read the next 2 books. Ugh
