Spotlight on Margaret Mallory and…

The Return of the Highlanders


Book 1

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.


Book 2

Alex MacDonald is known for his skill as a warrior, his prowess with women, and his vow to never take a wife. But now his chieftain has asked him to make the ultimate sacrifice: wed Glynis MacNeil, a lass famed throughout the Highlands for her exquisite beauty-and defiant ways.

Familiar with heartbreak, Glynis refuses to fall for another handsome scoundrel. Yet when Alex’s past sins force an unlikely union, Glynis gives in to temptation and becomes his wife. Will their newfound passion be strong enough to fight the enemy that threatens their home, their clan, and their very lives?


Book 3

From the Isle of Skye to the battlefields of France, Duncan MacDonald has never escaped the memory of the true love he left behind. Deemed unworthy of a chieftain’s daughter, Duncan  abandoned the lovely Moira to prove his worth in battle. Now, when called upon to rescue her from a rival clan, one thing is certain: Moira’s pull on his heart is stronger than ever.

Bartered away in marriage to a violent man, Moira will do anything to ensure she and her son survive. When a rugged warrior arrives to save her, the desperate beauty thinks her prayers have been answered-until she realizes it’s Duncan. The man who once broke her heart is now her only hope.   Moira vows never again to give herself-or reveal her secrets-to the fierce warrior, but as they race across the sea, danger and desire draw them ever closer.


Book 4

Connor, chieftain of the MacDonalds of Sleat, holds the fate of his people in his hands. Rival clans are plotting to take over his lands, and duty determines whom he will fight, trust . . . even marry. Seeking guidance, Connor turns to Ilysa, a young lass with the gift of foresight, who reveals an approaching danger-and a passion that burns only for him. But the warrior must make a powerful marriage alliance, and Ilysa’s bloodline is far too humble.

With her powers to heal and see evil where others cannot, beautiful Ilysa dresses plainly, speaks softly, and loves her chieftain from afar. Yet when Connor finally stokes the embers of desire that have so long burned within her, Ilysa feels bliss unlike any she’s ever known. Now as he is forced to place duty before happiness, Ilysa senses Connor is in grave peril. Can she find a way to prove she is the woman he needs by his side?

One lucky commenter will win her own CHIEFTAIN!

Margaret Mallory

Author Bio: Margaret Mallory started out as a Midwest girl. Except for two years in Africa, she grew up in small towns in northern Michigan, where her dad was a county extension agent. She received degrees from Michigan State University and the University of Michigan Law School, and then headed to Washington, DC to save the world. When that failed, she packed up and moved to the Pacific Northwest for no reason except that it was beautiful and far from her last jobs and boyfriends. She admits to having a vague notion of finding herself a park ranger with a dog. The man she met was not a park ranger, but he was willing to get the dog. Marriage and children soon followed.

Margaret spent many rewarding—but rather wearing—years in jobs devoted to improving services for abused children and care for the elderly. Not long ago, she surprised (shocked?) her friends and family by abandoning her legal career—and steady job—to write novels. She is thrilled to spend her days writing stories of love and adventure, instead of going to endless meetings. After all, she has always loved romantic tales, heroic deeds, and happy endings. And, at long last, she can satisfy her passion for justice by punishing the bad and rewarding the worthy—in the pages of her novels.

  2. Sorry, I don’t know if it’s just me but I couldn’t find a contact button to ask. I’m unable to comment on Sue Ellen’s post because the comment button disappears :) This was the only place I could think to post this.

  3. Thanks for the Spotlight & for participating in our blog tour! Thanks also for the great review of THE CHIEFTAIN that you posted a couple of days ago. :)

    I love that you featured all four of my Highlanders. The heroes are all in each others books, & readers have given me a lot of positive feedback on their “bro-mance.” It’s hard for me to say goodbye to them…

    While I wrote the books so that they can be read independently, I think readers will enjoy them a bit more if they read them in order.

    Good luck to the commenters!


  4. Fell head over heels for Conner! I splurged on Amazon and am patiently waiting for Ian and Alex to find their way to my doorstep. Duncan has been sitting here staring at me from the desk urging me to pick him up but I am forcing myself to read them all back to back. I may even re-read Conner again just because it’s THAT good! :)

  5. There’s nothing more hot and bother than the Highlanders. OK, I really need to start reading the books. Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Valentine’s Day.

  6. Thanks, Leah, for the wonderful comments about THE CHIEFTAIN & for buying the other books.. Tell Duncan he has to wait for Ian & Alex!! :)

    Great to see other Highlander-lovers here.


  7. I have said many times that Medieval Highland stories are a favorite. Medieval set romances were the first I read. Those set in the Highlands always appealed. The rugged Highlands demands more of its inhabitants and makes them a bit larger than life. A fierce loyalty, independence, and sense of honor are the result and make for great heroes.
    I look forward to reading THE CHIEFTAIN and hope it has a very successful release.
