At age eleven, Alex Sinclair pledges an oath to the Duke of Chatham promising to serve and protect his illegitimate daughter, Lucy FitzHarris. Nine years later, the duke unexpectedly takes Alex up on his vow, offering the future Laird of Balforss his daughter’s hand in marriage.
Now a man, hotheaded Alex has difficulty convincing Lucy—who would rather starve to death than marry a vulgar Scot—to go through with the arranged marriage. Once Lucy arrives in Scotland, she cannot resist the magic of Balforss or the allure of her handsome Highland warrior. But when Alex seemingly betrays Lucy right before their wedding, she is tricked into running away. Alex must rein in his temper to rescue his lady from unforeseen danger and Lucy must swallow her pride if she hopes to wed the Highlander she has come to love.
Each book in The Highlanders of Balforss series is STANDALONE:
* Tying the Scot
* Betting the Scot
* Forgetting the Scot
* Saving the Scot
This author is new to me and I love her work. I tried to read this in one day but my tired eyes couldn’t make it. But the next morning I wait to finish it.
I am going to continue this series and I know I will enjoy each one. Alex is such a strong character you can’t help cheer him through all the trials he faced to get his one true love. And what a match they made, perfect!
Really really good
I loved this story. The love story of Alex and Lucy is funny, intelligent, interesting. and very sweet. Exactly what I wanted in a Scottish Highlander romance. And Hercules is a wonderful addition. But my favorite part has to be the closeness between Alex and his family and how much they embraced Lucy. The whole story is very special and I can’t wait to read the next one.
Even though the couple were both prideful & she spoiled, it ended up being a really good book.
