This month I am so proud and excited to unveil my Scottish Brides trilogy with an excerpt from Book 1, The Lady and the Laird, here! Each book in the Scottish Brides series features one of the MacMorlan sisters and the dashing Regency lairds who steal their hearts. In book 1, Lady Lucy MacMorlan, the youngest of the sisters, inadvertently opens up an old clan feud by sabotaging the betrothal of Robert, Marquis of Methven. As Lucy has lost him a bride, Robert demands that she become his wife instead and provide the heir that he needs.
It’s been my ambition to write a series of books set in Scotland for years and I can’t quite believe that this is happening at last. Long term readers and visitors to my site will know that I love Scotland and visit as often as possible. Over the next few months I’ll be sharing my favourite historic sites, lesser known castles and their history, and some pictures of the stunning scenery, and I would love it if you would drop in to visit and chat about Scotland, that most beautiful, romantic and historical of countries. I know there are so many fans of Scotland and Scottish historicals out there. I’ll be talking about some of my favourite books and films and I would love to hear yours. There will also be Scottish themed contests and lots of information about the series on the book pages. So there is going to be quite a tartan theme to the Passion for History blog! Last but not least I’d like to thank all those readers who encouraged me to write a series set in Regency Scotland! Thank you!
