As the bard of the MacGregor clan, Finlay Grant is a natural-born charmer. He can easily win the heart of any lass . . . but somehow, the right words to express his love for stunning Leslie Harrison have eluded him.

A Battle for True Love
A furious Leslie Harrison could run her brothers through for promising her to another. But she will do anything to save her family from dishonor . . . even though in her heart she knows no other man but Finn will do. When Leslie’s betrothed makes a dastardly deal, putting her family and the MacGregor clan in danger, Finn will prove that he’s just as fierce in battle as he is sweet in song. Can these two lovers find a Christmas miracle that will grant them a happily-ever-after?
REVIEW: Finlay Grant is a mix of Beta and Alpha hero. As a famous bard of the MacGregor clan, his skill with words matches the one with weapons. Females of all ages are smitten with him and would love it if he’d make up his mind to marry one of them and take himself off the market, so long as he doesn’t pick the Lowlander that’s been hiding out with her family among them.
Leslie Harrison has tender feelings for this charming and handsome man, but he’s been forever procrastinating in declaring himself to her. She’s getting a bit frustrated with him!
And that’s where rubber meets the road, sort of! Just when Finn finds the courage to propose marriage, Leslie’s brother decides that by betrothing her to another, would save their family and their home . That’s something that neither hero nor heroine have been counting on and will have to find ways to thwart the bad guys as well as her family…
This is another little gem of a novella filled with fun, adventure and romance and I found its pace quick, characters charming and clever and the story very entertaining. Perfect for a night in.
