  • The Irishman’s Daughter by Bethany Hauck

    0 out of 5

    James McCabe is done with his studies at Glasgow University and ready to return to Gleann. There’s only one problem; he can’t seem to forget about the cloaked lass he’s seen multiple times around the city. Everyone else thinks it’s a lad, but James knows better. He’s determined to meet her, and learn more about her before he leaves the city.

    Nellie O’Malley has grown up on her Da’s ship traveling the seas on a boat filled with all men. When her Da is unfairly arrested by the Sheriff of Glasgow, she begins roaming the city, and finds out that the sheriff will overlook most crimes for a bit of coin. She steps in many times, but always with the hood on her cloak pulled up so no one can see her.

    When James is arrested after a tavern brawl, he’s thrown into a cell with Liam O’Malley and Tomas. After the three of them talk, they decide to take matters into their own hands and expose the Sheriff of Glasgow to King James. When James finds out that Liam is looking for a husband for his daughter Nellie, he quickly volunteers. The only problem is getting Nellie to agree. Maybe turning her over his knee the first time they met wasn’t the best way to capture her heart, but James won’t give up, and the two get to know each other better as they travel to Aberdeen to see the King.

    Although ‘The McCabe Books 1-6’ are stand-alone stories, I highly recommend reading book 5 “A Man of Honor” before reading book 6 “Her Brave Knight”. The stories in these two books complete one long tale. Many of the characters in this book have been introduced earlier in books 1-5.

  • Legend of the Mist by Veronica Bale

    0 out of 5

    There is a legend familiar to those who call the island of Fara their home. It is one that is passed down through the generations. From mothers who whisper the tale to their bairns as they float into dreams each night. From starry-eyed lasses who pray to find for themselves the undying love of which it speaks. From elders who know the magic of the thick and inexplicable mist surrounding this, and no other, of Orkney’s islands which rise from the sea off Scotland’s northern coast.

    As the daughter of Clan Gallach’s chief, Norah knows the legend better than anyone on the island. It tells of a lady who waits in the mists of Fara for her long lost love to return to her. It’s an entertaining story, to be sure. But it is no more than fantasy. Or so the islanders say. But Norah is not so certain. All her life she’s felt that the legend is more than simple folklore, that the lady of the mist is more real than anyone wishes to believe.

    But these are turbulent times, marked by the very real tales of Norse invaders and their brutality. When her people are conquered by a band of fearsome Vikings, one among them will blur the lines between reality and legend like never before. For Norah cannot help but feel that she knows him … from some other time … from some other life …

    0 out of 5

    Volume three, The Laird Returns, concludes Veronica Bale’s gripping debut Highland Loyalties trilogy.

    Tensions rise in the Highlands as the Scots fight for their independence from English tyranny. But amidst the chaos, Robbie MacGillivray and Jane Sewell are able to carve out a sliver of happiness for themselves, however brief and intermittent their time together may be. The odds are against them: he is the dispossessed chief of Clan Gillivray; she is the young, English wife of his enemy, Lord Reginald D’Aubrey, Baron of Dunloch.

    Those odds will eventually topple their precariously balanced happiness. Infuriated by the MacGillivray chief’s royal pardon, Lord Reginald will stop at nothing to bring the chief of Clan Gillivray to his death. Caught in the middle of the conflict, Jane must decide, once and for all, where her loyalties lie – with her English King, Edward the Longshanks, or with her love, her Highlander?

    And what will she do when the true laird of Dunloch returns?

  • Bride of Dunloch (Highland Loyalties Trilogy, Volume 1) by Veronica Bale @VeronicaBale1

    0 out of 5

    Author Veronica Bale’s debut novel, Bride of Dunloch, is a gripping story of love and conflict in the time of the first Scottish War of Independence, and of one young girl’s struggle to determine for herself what is right and what is wrong.

    In the watery grey light of a late spring dawn, two forces meet to oppose one another at the main gate of Dunloch Castle, an imposing structure nestled deep in the Scottish Highlands. On the attacking side are the MacGillivrays—a clan dispossessed of its ancestral lands and home because its members would not swear loyalty to the English King Edward the First. Dunloch is theirs, and they will take it back—by any means necessary.

    So is the world in which Jane Sewell, a young and naive English girl of noble birth whose hand has been given away in marriage, finds herself. It is a land that is as bloody and brutal as it is beautiful. But when she stumbles upon a wounded Scottish warrior from the enemy MacGillivray clan, her compassionate nature will not allow her to abandon him. Against her better judgement, she resolves to help him in secret.

    As tensions at Dunloch intensify, however, Jane finds herself torn between her duty—and her heart. For in these Scottish Highlands, loyalties can change as quickly as the weather …
