She was the most beautiful woman Duke Hannish MacGreagor had ever seen. He loved her, he married her, and then he left Scotland and bought an American silver mine. Fortune smiled down on him when he sold the mine and became one of the richest men in Colorado. Certain she would be happy wherever he was, the duke built a mansion, and sent for his wife. Yet, nothing could have prepared him for the disaster that was headed his way.
Welcome to boredom!
Worst book ever! If zero stars were allowed, that what it would have gotten. I wouldn't read this book ever again- even it was the last book in the world. Waste of time! And seriously, marrying a MAID??!!! That plot is soo old. Plus, WHO is your publisher? Let me introduce you to spellcheck, and commas, and periods!! Not to mention this book dragged, and dragged. I was bored to death! I made excuses of chores, just so I DIDNT have to read this book. Sorry, but I will never read anything by this author again.
Marblestone Mansion, Book 1
We now move from the late dark ages and meet the MacGreagors in Victorian times in America. There are no clan wars, but we still meet good and bad people and see what trouble they create. Some romance as well. This crazy old Irishman likes Marti’s books well enough and read and enjoy the slightly different genre and vey different times and places. Marti, keep writing and I will keep reading.
Don’t waste your time
After reading the first book of the Highlander series and liking it, when I saw the name of the author I didn't even bother reading the blurb, needless to say it was a big mistake. Thank God for iBook store free books, as it is I only wasted a couple minutes of my life that I'll never get back. I don't mean to be so harsh, this looks more like a rant than a review, but there is no helping it.
First and foremost I couldn't bring myself to keep reading after the Duke got a call from his brother and explains his plan to Alistair, so I didn't finish it. The only reason I read till this point was my misguided hope that the book wouldn't be as predictable as I thought it was shaping to be.
It was. Let's do a check list:
Honorable wronged, handsome, titled and wealthy man... Check
Dreadful, Callous, cheating, gold digging wife, soon to be ex-wife... Check
Poor beautiful, fun, and loving maid soon to be future wife... check
Now I have nothing against the Lord of the manor falling for the poor maid, But Sassy???? Really??? Of all the women a man like him could find that weren't interested in his money. He had to fall for the unschooled maid that as far as I could stomach to read had no ambition of learning and better herself. Really???
I'm at a lost for words, this book was as dreadful as the aforementioned gold digging soon to be ex-wife.
