A Third MacLeod Book?

I’m getting a lot of requests for a third The Legacy of MacLeod book which I’d love to provide, but since I never planned for this to be a series I didn’t set the stories up with an obvious third character to give a happily ever after to. If you’ve read either Charming the Shrew or Daring the Highlander (or both!) who would you like to see as the hero or heroine of a third MacLeod book?

Leave a suggestion in the comments. More than one answer is fine!

No spoilers, please!

  1. Isobel is who I would really like to see be the heroine of the third book. There is a good start to her character in the first book. I’d like to see if she found out who Cat really is, etc.

    • This is easy! Gofraig should be the hero. He returns to the MacDonnels and is made clan chief (Duff has no sons). The MacDonnels have no food or money but need to get through the winter; somehow the king sets him up to marry Isobel for her trocher but (possibly) this is not a marriage that she wants…you can work out a marriage that turns into a love match over the winter and spring. We can see more of Isobel and her friendship with Cat, we can see how Cat is settling into marriage and we can also get picture of how things are doing at Assynt (surely Ailig has a new loom built as a wedding present for Morainn once the snow is melted).

  2. Oh, good idea! I loved writing Isobel and had originally planned to have her and Ailig get together, but Morainn was having none of that. :-) Hmm, I’ll have to think on that one! Thanks!

    • Roxlyn,

      I was just talking about the sheep with my daughter last night! We had the same thought. Hmm, there are three of them and they do need redemption. :-)

      Thanks for the suggestion!!

  3. I love both the suggestions above too. I think it might be fun also to go into the future a bit and follow some of Tayg and Cat’s children.

  4. What about the sheep with Dolag or Isobel? Either would be good. Or have Ailligs commander and Isobel. The sheep would be interesting especially if they changed and became separatd. Looking forward to hopefully a new book. Or you could incorporate a character from The Devil of Kilmarten?

  5. Okay so I just stumbled on to the first book on Tuesday, just about finished, and getting excited about the next one. So, my opinion is based on the fact I havent read the next one but my mind keeps going back to Isobel.

  6. Isobel, Freya, the Sheep, Dolag, Gofraig, and my boy, Skaeth. So many stories yet to write! Thanks for all the ideas. All my characters were right in front of me but I didn’t see the stories. Now I do! Thanks!!!

  7. i belive you should totaly make 2 more nooks one for Cat and tayg one for Mora and ailig their lifes after you end the story

    much anticipated
    kyra ;)

    • Kyra,

      Whatever the next book turns out to be, I promise to update everyone on Tayg, Cat, Mora & Ailig! Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Skaeth! Skaeth would definitely make a wonderful hero for a future book. What a back story he would have too, being a “spy” for the king! Mysterious, shrewd, intelligent and a loner = hero material.

    And what about Gofraig and the Freya? He could redeem the MacDonnell clan in her eyes.

    Whoever you decide to write about, I’ll be waiting to enjoy their story!

    • Ketherine,

      Yes, I think Skaeth will have to get his own story. So much to explore there. ;->

      Thanks for stopping by and for reading my book!

  9. Are you done yet??
    Thanks for good reading. We eagerly anticipate the next books (yes, plural)

  10. Read the 3 books – loved the shrew and the next one – your character focus is awesome — but last I read the first one with the Healer and the MadMan — and the healing scenes fascinated me — perhaps you ned not be linear — could Isobel be hiding a healer identity — is it a skill of Skaeth …

    thanks for some great reading and please go off in whatever direction your muse sees fit!

    • Leslie,

      I’m returning to that mystical aspect of Highland culture that I mined in The Devil of Kilmartin in my new series and of course staying focused on character because that’s the part I love the best in spinning stories. I also have nebulous plans for a spin off of Devil – I’m thinking Wee Fia, grown up. Who knows what mystical skills that one could have!

      Thanks for reading my books and dropping by to let me know you enjoyed them. I never get tired of hearing that!

  11. Yes please Book #3 is needed — we need more The MacLeod’s…..

    Thank you……

  12. You should have novel about Skaeth….would love to know his backstory and what becomes of him when he return to the King. Isbobel and Freya would make good heroines. I.’d also like to know if the sheep are able to earn independence and redemption apart from each other in the king.’s army.

  13. Baltair needs to have someone special in his life. I would also like to find out if Mora has has any babes. I’m thinking her first husband was the cause of no children in that marriage.
