Plaid Tidings is a very romantic read that fans of romance are going to love!
Lord Alexander Mallory whether by fortune or by fate has won a Scottish estate by an unlucky hand of cards. Bonniebroch Estate is known for being untamed as is the first snowfall of winter, but the estate itself is nothing compared to the beautiful, maiden of purity that is Alex's new betrothed. The last thing Lord Alex expected was to win the estate let alone to inherit the maiden, a woman he hardly knows or wants. To make matters worse the holiday of Christmas is approaching, a time of joy and romance. Alex will prove to have a difficult task honoring the Bonniebroch Estate, seducing the fire red-headed virgin and breaking his own will all before the holiday comes to a close.
Lucinda MacOwen is as undisciplined as the mountains of the Bonniebroch that she calls home. Witty and strong in nature Lucinda knows that she is playing with a dangerous temptation in falling for the new Lord of her home, but there is something charming and rugged about Alexander Mallory. There is danger lurking within his eyes and comfort within his strong embrace. Lucinda knows that surrendering to a man like Alexander will have its many rewards, but where there are rewards there will also prove to be strong consequences.
Plaid Tidings was my first time ever reading a novel penned by Ms. Marlowe and I was anything but disappointed with her romantic, writing style. I loved the fact that Marlowe kept the romance alive throughout the entire novel. It never fell short, the chemistry thrived between Lucinda and Alex and made for a truly romantic, wintry read! My only downfall with this novel was the incredible thirst for the Scottish dialogue which got a bit bothersome at times for me, but also sets the tone of the actual novel and creates an inviting world of sexy Scottish Lords and the strong women that they love.
Christmas in the Highlands. . .
Not any dashing English lord's idea of a good time. But now that Lord Alexander Mallory has won a Scottish estate in a hand of cards, he is the unlikely laird of the wild, snowy Bonniebroch. Worse yet, the ancient pile of stones comes with a betrothal. To a fiery red-headed virgin. And a curse.
Alex will have his hands full honoring the first, seducing the second and breaking the third. . .all by Twelfth Night.
