Part of The Lochmore Legacy: a Scottish castle through the ages! Far from her home in France, Marguerite Vallon escapes her arranged marriage to a man she despises. Stowing away in a stranger’s cart, she finds herself headed deep into the Highlands with Ewan Lochmore, new Earl of Glenarris! Ewan vows to protect her. But maybe the freedom Marguerite has been searching for can be found with this rugged warrior…
I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
We return to the rugged and wild landscape of Scotland to Book 3 in The Lochmore Legacy series. To 1513 were the men were wilder than the land that they were borne from.
From the very first paragraph author Elisabeth Hobbes was setting a scene of a land that bore many battles and although Ewan Lochmore didn’t wear any physical scars from the recent battle at Flodden his heart had been shattered with the deaths of his father and brother. With a heart so leaden and full of grief he’s now on his way to Stirling Castle to learn of his fate now he is next in line to become Laird of the Lochmore Clan.
Ewan wasn’t like his father or brother he’d gone off to study law and was more in tune to using words to voice his opinion than a sword but now knew that he had to step up to the role of Laird.
Whilst at the castle Ewan comes across a young woman who looks very much a stranger in and amongst the other ladies of the court. A vision in her strange clothes but one he cannot forget and Ewan continues to bump into this young woman whilst at court.
Marguerite Vallon was a young Frenchwoman and this was her first visit to Scotland. The temperament of the men was quite startling to her including that of her soon-to-be husband Duncan McCrieff, a man much older than her. Marguerite had noticed the man looking at her earlier and her eyes are drawn to him now, however he appears a little different to most of the other men in the castle. Marguerite soon learns to find her fiancé is not to be trusted with her heart and she fears for her life and comes up with a dangerous plan to escape Duncan McCrieff’s clutches. An escape plan that somehow includes one of her fiancé’s rivals!
I loved this third instalment of The Lochmore Legacy by Elisabeth Hobbes and it’s my first introduction to her work and to a new period of historical romance. Elisabeth Hobbes words transported me to this rugged landscape of hearty, wild men with ease and I could feel the tension between the clansmen and also the chemistry that was fuelled with earthly desire. My heart was beating as loud as the battle cries as I was captivated by this romance between a young man thrust into the duties of Lairdship and a young woman lost in foreign lands who is afraid for her future.
I’m so looking forward to reading the final instalment in The Lochmore Legacy. I would highly recommend reading all the books in the series in order as book one sets the scene to a centuries old mystery. You can find my reviews for Book One here and Book Two here.
