Scots Heroes

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! I'm officially on vacation, but since I still have August books here, I still need to share, and this time out, we're heading for one of my favorite places on earth...Scotland!

My Shadow Warrior (MacDonell Brides Trilogy) My Shadow Warrior (MacDonell Brides Trilogy) (Pocket) by Jen Holling starts us off this time. The last MacDonell sister gets her groom this time, but it might not be the one she's expecting. Rose has been trying fruitlessly to cure her dying father, and her last hope is the famous healer, William MacKay, but he hasn't answered a single one of her letters. The only thing left for her to do is to go to him to request his assistance. With William's help, Rose's healing ability grows, but her betrothed has a grudge against the healer. And someone still wants her father dead. I think I liked this story the best of the three, though clever readers will have figured out the bad guy early on. William is a good man and a wonderful hero, and there is more of the Scottish setting visible in this final story in the trilogy. This one's earned four of Cupid's five arrows.

Highlander in Love Highlander in Love (Pocket Star) by Julia London is next. Mared Lockhart's been bartered as payment for her family's debt, but she has no intention of marrying Payton Douglas, so when he demands her presence in his home as his housekeeper, she knows it's either that or marriage to the hated man. Honestly, I have no idea what Payton saw in Mared. She struck me as spoiled, denying even her family's debt repayment solution to him in a time when that most likely wouldn't have been permitted, and he was far beyond patient, even after she repeatedly hurts him. I wanted him to have a different heroine, but, alas, it wasn't to be. Sadly, I'm giving this one only two arrows.

Don't forget to check out our reader survey if you haven't yet. The deadline for getting your responses to me is August 31, 2005, so you still have a couple weeks to complete the survey.

And until next time, happy reading!
