To Yield to a Highlander
Can this be the best mistake of his life?
Laird Duncan Grant doesn't want his neighboring clans, the MacIntoshes and the MacPhersons, to form an alliance by the planned marriage between their offspring. It would make for a dangerous situation for his clan. Since he is in need of a wife, he decides to seize the bride on her way to the wedding and keep her for himself.
But he takes the wrong lass.
Lady Elsbeth Johnstone is tired of living in her twin sister's shadow. She loves her dearly, but it is time for her to have her own life. With no prospects for marriage, she decides a convent in Perth is the place for her.
In the dead of night on her trek to Perth, she is dragged away from her escort by a band of men who think she is someone else. Furious at how her life is now out of her control again, she demands Laird Grant bring her to the convent in Perth.
Angry at the mistake he made, he agrees, but he can't help but wonder if he could tame the spirited lass and convince her to stay.
After all, he is in need of a wife.
Lady Elsbeth longs to belong and have something of her own on her own terms. If only men will stay out of her way and stop telling her what’s best for her. When Laird Duncan Grant gets in her way she soon sees that maybe things are not as they seem if only she can make the decision. Duncan needs a wife even if he has to take a lass away from her soon to be groom. He will offer all he can to his wife except his heart!
This was a really good book and I’m so happy that Elsbeth found her HEA.
Predictable and one dimentional
Love happens when you least expect it
This is book three in Callie Hutton’s fabulous The Sutherland’s of Dornoch series, set in the medieval Highlands of Scotland. Elsbeth our heroine has a twin sister Ainslee, who is married to the Laird of the Sutherland Clan, Hayden. While living there for a time after their marriage Elsbeth did briefly entertain the idea of marrying his younger brother Connel until he arrived back at the castle with his new wife Maura in tow. Seeing the two couples so in love and happy, she feels out of place in the castle and there is no role for her. She decides the only option she has left is to join a convent, after much persuading she sets off for her new life. Our hero Duncan, Laird of the Grant Clan receives news that the two clans that border his are making an alliance through marrying their son and daughter. Knowing this will threaten his clans safety he sets out to stop the wedding and take the bride for himself. Things go awry and this results in Elsbeth being kidnapped on the way to Perth and Duncan ending up with the wrong lady. After a few twists and turns our couple end up together. There is a bit of everything in this book, humor, drama and of course love, with a happy ever after. I am really enjoying this series, the characters are believable, charming and the setting is fantastic. I highly recommend this book.
I received and reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book and this is my honest opinions and review.
