‘The Scandalous Secret of Abigail MacGregor’ by Paula Quinn

tssoamg pqSTORY: A Lady’s Mission . . . 

Known for her beauty and boldness, Abigail MacGregor must preserve her clan’s dangerous secret: that her mother is the true heir to the English Crown. If the wrong people find out, it will mean war for her beloved Scotland. To keep peace, she embarks for London, unprepared for the treachery that awaits-especially from her wickedly handsome escort. He is the enemy, but his slow, sensuous kisses entice her beyond reason . . .

A Warrior’s Temptation

General Daniel Marlow, loyal knight and the kingdom’s most desirable hero, would rather be on the battlefield than transporting a spoiled Highland lass. But Abby MacGregor is unlike any woman he’s ever met, in a ballroom or in his bedroom. Captivated by her daring spirit and seduced by her lovely innocence, Daniel must choose between betraying his queen or giving up the woman who would steal his country-and his traitorous heart.

REVIEW: This is book three in The MacGregors: Highland Heirs series. My first thought upon finishing this story was … WOW! And here’s why.

The heroine, Abby MacGregor, was smart and intuitive. She was possessed of a strong will and sharp mind, love for and loyalty to, her family. You just can’t help but like someone like that.

Daniel however, I had a problem with, but I did warm up to the man as I got to know him better as the story moved along. Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place! This knight had so much to deal with and hard choices to make that even King Solomon wouldn’t want to be him!

As a couple, Abby and Daniel were a match made in heaven, although they didn’t think so at the beginning.

This is a well written romance with complex characters and political intrigue at the heart of it. Because of its multiple plots, this is a story worth taking your time in reading. It made me think, wonder and appreciate the mind behind its telling.

But what I love most about Paula Quinn’s books is how seamlessly she incorporates real historical characters with her fiction ones. They all become real, and you are drawn to all of them.
