Charming the Shrew
The Legacy of MacLeod, Book I
Returning home to the Scottish Highlands after battling the English, Tayg Munro receives a hero’s welcome—and a shocking ultimatum. In order to take his place as heir to the chiefdom of Culrain, he must choose a wife within the month or have one chosen for him. Angered by his family’s decree, Tayg delays the inevitable by volunteering for a mission for the king that takes him deep into the Highlands. Preoccupied by his marital obligation, the brooding warrior sets out with no hint of the fateful encounter that awaits him…
Catriona MacLeod is known throughout the Highlands as the Shrew of Assynt, thanks to her razor-sharp tongue and her unwillingness to yield to her five brothers. When she’s told that her eldest brother has promised her hand in marriage to a man she has good reason to hate, she flees into the Scottish wilderness, determined to seek the king’s intervention in her plight. When she reluctantly joins forces with a handsome traveler, she cannot anticipate the treacherous plot that will soon embroil them—nor the passion that will ignite between them.
This is a very well rounded love story, and much more practical emotionally than most of the romances out there. The characters are developed well, and the interaction between the two main characters is great. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone. Warning: The story is addictive, I could hardly put it down until I finished it!Marissa Catanzaro
Enjoyed the glimpses into historical life, dress, but especially liked the story line and how the two main characters worked through their feelings and their fears and brought the book to a satisfying conclusion…Loved it!!!Maria V. Grant
The storyline has a good dose of passion, but it is well integrated without seeming forced or intrusive. While this is first and foremost a romance novel, there is plenty of attention paid to the historical development.The Romance Reviews *TOP 1000 REVIEWER*
