Happy Wine Wednesday everyone! Hope you all are enjoying some lovely spring weather as we head into April. This week's wine / book pairing is brought to you by Author Michelle Deerwester-Dalrymple's The Lady of the Glen and Muirwood Winery's Chardonnay. The Lady of the Glen is part of Deerwester-Dalrymple's The Glen Highland Romance series. It's a wonderful historical Highland romance and who doesn't love men in kilts in the springtime... er, or anytime for that matter. For a most pleasurable reading experience, be sure to grab a copy of The Lady of the Glen and poor yourself a glass of Muirwood Chard. Happy mid-week and, as always, happy reading!
Elayne MacNally knew one thing for certain: Her reputation as the willful harpy of the highlands was well earned.
As the spoiled daughter of the successful Laird MacNally, Elayne got whatever she wanted, until the man she thought she would wed rejected her. Dejected and reconsidering her lot in life, her father comes up with an opportunity that could change the course of her life and perhaps her reputation as well.
Declan MacCollough also knew one thing for certain: He did not want to follow in his father’s footsteps as Laird of the reputed “Beast Clan.”
Following his father’s death, Declan had a lot of work ahead of him to reclaim any sense of respect for his people. Families had fled; fathers would not permit their daughters to wed into the clan. Declan wanted, more than anything, to recreate his clan into one deserving of service to the King. The first step Declan must take is to find a wife with enough backbone to help him tame his clan, help it grow, and gain back respect.
Learning of Elayne and her reputation, Declan offers to wed the lass – an arranged marriage of sorts. With no other choices open to her, Elayne decides that the Laird of the Beast Clan is her best, if only, option.
What happens when she arrives is a strange and passionate meeting of the minds between herself and Declan. Playing on each other’s strengths, they maneuver around those who attempt to prevent the marriage as a play for power. However, Declan’s past affiliations with the King are not welcome by all, and the challenges to their marriage become the least of their worries.
Can Declan and Elayne trust each other enough to face the threats to the MacCollough clan and their very lives?
