Captured by a brooding Highland laird? These tried-and-true tips are sure to turn him kilt over heels in love and give you exactly the HEA every Scottish lass deserves:
- Save his son and protect the boy as your own;
- Fiercely square off toe-to-toe with your scowling captor at every opportunity;
- Never, ever let him know you've fallen in love.
Laird Gavin MacKinnon is a changed man—and not for the better. Ever since his young son, Ewan, disappeared two years ago, Gavin has grown callous and bitter. Scouring the countryside, his search leads him to a mysterious woman who maintains the boy is hers. He decides to take them both and ask questions later.
Deirdre MacIntyre will go with the brooding laird if it will keep her son safe, but she meets fire with fire at every opportunity, letting the Highland brute see just how fierce she can be. Gavin has to admit that the beautiful lass has a bond with Ewan—not to mention an allure he can't deny—and things aren't adding up. Maybe it wouldn't hurt to give her the benefit of the doubt. But when Deirdre's clan comes to claim her under threat of war, Gavin has a choice to make: fight to keep Deirdre at his side or let go his one true chance of ever knowing peace.
Readers love Alyson McLayne's beguiling Scottish romance. This healer will go to extraordinary lengths to protect her clan...even if it means seeking the help of a fierce Highlander.
HE WAS LOOKING FOR VENGEANCE
Laird Lachlan MacKay never planned on leading his clan, but when his older brother was murdered, he was left with no choice. His vow to avenge his brother has led him to the MacPherson clan—and their bewitching healer, Amber.
INSTEAD HE FOUND HER
Amber MacPherson is desperate. Dressed as a boy to escape her clan's treacherous leader, she runs right into Lachlan—who orders her detained. At first she causes him nothing but frustration, especially when she blackmails him into helping her clan. But when she's threatened by the same man who murdered his brother, Lachlan will do whatever it takes to keep her safe—and by his side.
When a Highland laird decides to marry, nothing can stand in his way...not even the bride.
No one ever accused Kerr MacAlister of being a nice man. Everyone would agree, however, that when the laird makes a promise, nothing can stand in his way. Which is why everyone knows Isobel MacKinnon will end up his wife.
Isobel spent most of her childhood in love with the tall, dark, and sexy Scot. It wasn't until she was fifteen and failed to entice Kerr into kissing her that things turned sour. Now, Kerr is the one trying to entice her, but Isobel won't be swayed...no matter how tempting he might be.
Then Kerr discovers she may be eloping with someone else, and he has a choice to make—is this Highlander's fate to steal her away himself, to a place where both love and danger lurk, or let her go and face losing her forever?
