The Scoundrel Appeals...

Happy Medieval Monday! I'm happy you've found me. If you love historical romance--medieval style--then check out the Medieval Romance Lovers page where you can find a variety of authors who write what you're looking for. But how to choose which one to start with? That's where the Medieval Monday Blog Hop comes into play. Each Monday a group of us authors share a snippet of a longer excerpt from one of our books for you to get a taste of our story. The current theme is The First Kiss!

Today I have Cathy MacRae visiting with a peek at The Highlander's Pirate Bride! And how is this for a teaser - Will the theft of the wrong ship land her in a hangman’s noose? Or a Highlander’s arms? Hoo wee! Click the BUY NOW button.

You can find me over at Cathy MacRae's blog with the next snippet from my latest, Lachlann's Legacy.


A laugh bubbled unexpectedly in Rona’s throat. Why not wed the MacLean’s youngest son? No matter what she did, her days of striding the planks appeared over. An hour ago, the admission had embittered her toward men of all ages—especially those who claimed to only have her best interests at heart. Now? The scoundrel appealed.

To see last week's snippet, visit here.

And follow along next week here.


As the pirate The Black MacNeill, Rona MacNeill has stolen more than one English ship to keep her clan from starving. With Yule only days away, will the theft of the wrong ship land her in a hangman’s noose? Or the arms of a Highlander?

Rona MacNeill has done everything she can to help her small, impoverished clan—except marry for money. Her luck seems to lie in stealing ships, not attracting suitors. Only days before Yule, she seeks one last ship with stores to keep her people fed over the long, harsh winter. Too bad her luck has run out.

Pedr MacLean is happy to be the younger (by three minutes) son of Baron MacLean. His days are filled with running the family’s shipping business and sailing the world. His heart belongs to the sea—or so he thinks, until one of his ships is stolen, and the woman responsible turns his world upside down.

Drawn to Rona’s strength and love of the sea, Pedr will agree to her father’s demand—information on the whereabouts of his ship in exchange for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Will Rona find herself caught between a marriage of convenience and a hangman’s noose? Or will she discover something far more compelling?

The Highlander’s Pirate Bride is the swash-buckling seventh addition to the Hardy Heroines series. If you like pirates, rags-to-riches, and swoon-worthy Highlanders, you’ll love Cathy & DD MacRae’s newest high-seas romance.
