    a fabulous historical romance

    In Ireland Clan McDonough possessed the legendary Celtic relic Circle of Light seemingly forever. Over time with so much fortune bestowed on the clan, a belief grew that the Circle of Light was a special gift that even St. Patrick came to see. The clan felt they were the guardians, but to lose the Circle of Light meant to lose prosperity. When the Black Scotsman McBride stole the Circle of Light, Clan McDonough fell into poverty and a sense of disgrace for failing their mission.<BR/><BR/>On his deathbed, Clan McDonough leader Lord O¿Donnell forces his daughter Maura to vow to take back what is theirs and save the clan. Duke Alec McBride, a descendent of the thief, arrives in town. When Maura meets him to beg he give her the Circle of Light, they are compromised. Outraged and holding her culpable they marry; something she did not plan when she went to beg. Neither is aware of the enchantment of love between them as each tries to top the other in a game of seduction.<BR/><BR/>BRIDE OF A WICKED SCOTSMAN is a fabulous historical romance with a touch of whimsical fantasy based on a Celtic legend. Misleading title aside; Alec and Maura are fully developed rivals competing for the upper hand in their relationship with the stakes being the Circle of Light artifact. Fans will enjoy the battle between the Scotsman and the Irish lady as love proves the most powerful magic of all.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Irish vs Scots

    All stories with bitter rivals should end this well. The banter between the two main characters was witty and fun. The secondary characters however were underdeveloped. The older I get and the more romantic fiction I read, the sillier the verbage used for the sexy scenes seems. Overall a pleasant, escapist read.

    Desperation drives Lady Maura O’Donnell into the arms of h

    Desperation drives Lady Maura O&rsquo;Donnell into the arms of her greatest enemy in search of the Circle of Light. The treasured Celtic relic was her family&rsquo;s talisman and the hope of the people, unfortunately lost long ago to the hands of a ruthless pirate. Maura will risk anything to get the Circle back - even wedding the duke himself!

    It isn&rsquo;t long before the Duke of Glenenden suspects he&rsquo;s been tricked into a hasty marriage. Fortunately, his anger at being roped and shackled by Lady Maura is slowly supplanted by an even stronger emotion. Yet, his lady wife remains a puzzle to him. How can the seductress and the demure mistress be one and the same woman? What power is it that drives their destinies and will either of them find the strength to avoid a terrible tragedy?

    A Little Disappointed

    I was a huge fan of the first book in this series and it was my first book by Samantha James....so I was thrilled to learn it would be a series. The 2nd book and now this one have been so-so for me and I'm a little disappointed. The back-story for both hero and heroine are not fleshed out and the constant back and forth of Maura's feelings were annoying to me. I look forward to what's next though and hope for a wonderful read!

    Good but not her best!

    I have loved a lot of her books but this one was not the best. I thought the plot and story was a little lacking. A little disappointed.

    Loved IT!

    This story was new to me. Fresh. Riveting. Captivating. I wasn't sure that I was going to like it at all. The love between Alec and Maura is undeniable from the beginning. Maura tricked him into 'marrying' her so that she could complete her father's dying wish was to return the circle of light back to her family lands. I loved the electricty in the air when they saw each other. I thought this was a fabulous end to the McBride series. :] More Samantha James Please.

    Just okay

    This book was just okay for me. It was one of those books that are lite easy reading. It wasn't boring but it wasn't very exciting either, it was just an okay book.
