They should never have stolen his wife. 

Ian Mackintosh and his bride, Rose, return to McLaren Lands to rebuild all that was destroyed by the previous laird. Believing bad times and evil men are behind them, they've let their guard down. Ian's world is turned upside down one cold winter's night when Rose is kidnapped. 

Desperate, he is willing to make a deal with the devil himself in order to ensure her safe return. And he may have done just that when he agrees to work with the brother of the man responsible for tearing his world apart.  

Is there a price too high to save the woman you love?

It's a Page-Turner!

Loved this Highland story! I like a good romance but even more I like a romance with an adventure! Ian's Rose is an adventure you won't want to miss . . . And of course there MUST be another book!

A Wonderful Story

Ian’s Rose is a beautiful Highland love story. It is a fast-paced story that will make you laugh, cry, and fume.

As soon as we are reminded of the circumstances that brought our hero and heroine together, Ian declares he is unworthy of Rose and breaks their betrothal. What follows is a march to the altar that will have you laughing all the way.

A day after their wedding, Ian agrees to become the Chief of the McLaren clan. Although these lands are Aggie’s through her mother, and she and Frederick had planned to rebuild them, they have decided to go to the lands hers through her newly discovered true father, Douglas Carruthers. Ian and Rose will rebuild the McLaren clan, the keep, and the lands as a legacy for Ailrig, Aggie’s son.

The journey and the rebuilding project are hard, rewarding work. Despite some setbacks, everything seems to be coming along. But, evil is afoot. All hell breaks out when a neighboring clan chief has the keep attacked and Rose kidnapped. Who has her? Why was she taken? How will Ian get her back?

This is a cleverly written book with a strong hero and heroine, great secondary characters (I really liked Brogan and Leona), a vile villain, and a surprise rescuer(s). Don’t miss this one. You will love it!


A real page turner, I could not put it down. Look forward to the next
