Spotlight on Paula Quinn and ‘The Scot’s Bride’

THE SCOT'S BRIDE

The Scot's BrideBOOK BLURB: An Irresistible SCcoundrel

Highlander Patrick MacGregor likes his life just the way it is. Fighting for his coin, enjoying a woman’s charms, and bearing no responsibility at all? Aye, that’s the life for him. That is, until Patrick sees her-a raven-haired beauty with eyes as dark as midnight. Patrick swore never to fall in love. Not even with a lass as wild as he…especially when she’s from a rival clan.

AN Undeniable Desire

Charlotte Cunningham knows Patrick is trouble the moment she sets eyes on him. Her only goal is to escape the possibility of marriage. Any marriage. But as the summer days turn into sultry nights, enticing her beyond reason, Charlie is forced to choose between the freedom she craves and the reckless rogue she can’t forget.

Her heart near stopped when she looked up to find a man rising from his crouching position in the thick bushes. And not just any man, but the apparent victor of last night’s brawl! In the full light of day, donned in nothing but a pair of snug-fitting woolen breeches, hide boots, and a purple jaw, he appeared as big as Hamish and fit enough to outrun her. The hands he held up were large enough to confine her with little effort. She knew how powerful he was, how fast. The slight tilt of his mouth almost convinced her that it would take even less effort to arrive at her throat to devour her as he had devoured Bethany.

She looked around. Where were her brothers? What was this stranger doing here? Had he followed her? She should be afraid of him, but she had her sling. She was more afraid of him telling her brothers that he’d seen her in the tavern. “Stay back!” she shouted and lifted her weapon. The man went still, eyeing the leather sling in her hand.

Something in his gaze sparked with recognition. Damn!

“Lass, where did ye—?”

She didn’t wait for him to finish, but whirled her weapon over her head. She knew nothing about him, save that he was strong, he’d been hiding in the bushes, and he was a rogue. She wouldn’t take any chances.

“Wait!” he called out, lifting his hands higher in surrender. Her heart near stopped when she looked up to find a man rising from his crouching position in the thick bushes.

REVIEW: As usual Paula Quinn weaves a tale of complex characters and plot. As I said before, she is a master at storytelling and I truly enjoy the way she takes me into the Scotland of long ago and while guiding me through these intriguing plots she never fails to introduce me to the most interesting characters who are fully fleshed out, real and always total opposites.

There’s nothing more fun than watching a strong, confirmed bachelor fall for the innocent and beautiful but never the less strong girl such as our heroine.

However, following Charlie as she navigates her hard and tumultuous life was heartbreaking, yet heartwarming because of her personality and strength.

Their journey together was interesting, fun and very romantic and I really enjoyed their story.

Once more I can only say thanks to Ms. PQ and to you, happy reading.
