THE DOUGLAS LEGACY
The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family's bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when powerful enemies threaten, each Douglas lass will find she must face them alone.
CAPTURED BY A LAIRD
Haunted by his father's violent death, David Hume, the new laird of Wedderburn, sets out to make his name so feared that no one will dare harm his family again. The treacherous ally who played on his father's weakness is dead and beyond David's vengeance, but his castle and young widow are ripe for the taking. The moment David lays eyes on the dark-haired beauty defending her wee daughters, however, he knows this frail-looking lass is the one person who could bring him to his knees.
Wed at thirteen to a man who tried daily to break her spirit, Lady Alison Douglas is looking forward to a long widowhood. But when the fearsome warrior known as the Beast of Wedderburn storms her gates, she finds herself, once again, forced to wed a stranger. Alison is only a pawn to serve his vengeance, so why does this dark warrior arouse such fiery passion and an unwelcome longing in her heart?
With death and danger looming, these two wounded souls must learn to trust each other...for only love can save them.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I hated it to come to the end. The characters are so believable. It is hard to believe that people lived in such violent times. Worth reading.
If you love a strong warrior that will do anything for the people he loves and a spirited lady, this is a must read. Author did a excellent job writing this book. Can't wait to read next story.
I throughly enjoyed this book! It is well written and the characters are well developed! As the castle is sieged, Alison meets the beast , David Hume, and does not want to marry him but it is the best for her daughters. Her relationship to the crown of Scotland is through her brother Archie who is wed to the queen. Lots of twists and politics involved but there is plenty of action, romance and even some humor.
