**The date in the blurb is incorrect! It’s supposed to be 1370!**
Laird Connor MacLerie is ruthless, a fact his wife, Jocelyn, knows all too well–particularly when it comes to arranging marriages for members of his clan. Though they found happiness and passion themselves, Jocelyn had been bought as a bride for Connor herself and doesn’t want to see another woman betrothed without consent. She hatches a matchmaking plot of her own–but it will only succeed if she can tame her Highland husband!
This is a companion story to author Terri Brisbin’s MacLerie Clan series, set in the fourteenth-century Scottish Highlands. It has been a fun series for me, but this story, a bridging sort of story between one generation and the next, is only for people already familiar with the characters.
Taking us twenty years into the future from the first book in the series, our characters now have children of their own who will be facing marriage. The fathers want these to be business arrangements, and the mothers want their children to marry for love. This plotline runs in the background of book five, so I probably should have read this story first!
Brisbin’s writing really works for me, but there’s not a great deal of plot here, so it is definitely only one for the diehard fans.
I do think the price ($2.99) was a little steep for such a short read, but I knew that going in, so it was my fault if I felt overcharged!
