#68 :The Guardian - Margaret Mallory (With Winner Announcement)


Synopsis & Book Info:
Four fearless warriors return to the Highlands to claim their lands and legacies. But all their trials on the battlefield can't prepare them for their greatest challenge yet: winning the hearts of four willful Scottish beauties.
PASSION IGNITED.
After years of fighting abroad, Ian MacDonald comes home to find his clan in peril. To save his kin, he must right the wrongs from his past . . . and claim the bride he's long resisted.
As a young lass, Sìleas depended on Ian to play her knight in shining armor. But when his rescue attempt compromised her virtue, Ian was forced to marry against his wishes. Five years later, Sìleas has grown from an awkward girl into an independent beauty who knows she deserves better than the reluctant husband who preferred war to his wife. Now this devilishly handsome Highlander is finally falling in love. He wants a second chance with Sìleas - and he won't take no for an answer.

My Opinion:
Whoop! Whoop!
I loved every page in this book!
Sìleas is my new favorite female heroine. I don't think she even knows how brave, strong and courageous she is for females to read about. I loved seeing her grow, like the Ugly Duckling, and capturing her one true love.
Of course the bumps along the way were page turning.
And Ian, what can I say other than the guy on the cover is exactly what I think of when I read about him. Strong, sexy and sensible.
So it's a definite recommendation from me to romance lovers!


5/5

  1. Thanks for a fabulous review! I'm thrilled Sileas is your new favorite heroine. Maybe I shouldn't admit this, but I didn't realize readers would love Sileas so much when I was writing her. I loved her, but I didn't know she would resonate with readers as much as she has. :)

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
