Description
AN UNWILLING BRIDE
Proud, passionate Lady Gillian MacGuire is known as the Spitfire of the Isles. She can take care of herself and hasn't yet met a man who could impress her . . . especially not Donell MacDonnell, the odious older man she was promised to five years ago. She's been dreading his return, but when her intended comes back to claim her, she's stunned at how different he seems. The man she swore she would spurn forever now invades her thoughts, her dreams, and her heart.

AN UNEXPECTED DESIRE
When Roag agrees to assume the identity of the recently deceased MacDonnell chieftain, no one warns him that the man was betrothed. As a member of the King's Fenris Guard, he is oath-bound to embark on whatever mission the crown gives him. Of course, he was expecting a battle-not a bride. Yet after sharing one kiss with Lady Gillian, the powerful Highlander becomes the one seduced and captivated. Now giving in to temptation could ruin them both . . .

        August 17, 2015
        The lead couple in Welfonder’s second Scandalous Scots medieval romance (after To Love a Highlander) unexpectedly cede center stage to the author’s purple prose (“a terrible tingly warmth spread across her most private places”) and melodramatic storytelling. The serviceable plot is given just enough of a twist to avoid staleness. Instead of the usual device of a knight sent to take control of an area by marrying into local nobility, Roag the Bear assumes the identity of a dead man, Donnell MacDonnell, to use the man’s Hebridean island as a base to stop attacks against his king’s ships. MacDonnell was betrothed, so Roag must handfast Lady Gillian MacGuire, who last saw her loathsome fiancé five years earlier and cannot understand how this handsome man could be her husband-to-be. Roag isn’t the only one with secrets. Gillian’s look innocuous enough, but there’s an unnecessary doozy among them. Unfortunately, Welfonder metes out almost every revelation so slowly that her storytelling has a staged feel to it, which overshadows the actual romance. Agent: Roberta Brown, Brown Literary Agency.
