    A Breathtaking Sensual Tale Of Love That Conquers All!

    Sir Marmaduke Strongbow , what endears this character of Scottish tale of love to us, is his scar marring his noble features. The scar runs from his eye to the corner of his mouth. This makes his one eye appear blind, though the eye really is gone. This gives Maramduke a grimacing, if not scary appearance, at times. He received his scar in a rage induced sword fight with Duncan MacKenzie's evil half brother, who poisoned Marmaduke's wife (Duncan MacKenzie's sister), killing her. Marmaduke is now asked by Lady Linnet MacKenzie, sister to Lady Caterine Keith to become Caterine`s champion and pretend to be her husband. Lady Caterine Keith whose husband was murdered and she, violently raped repeatedly by a group of English warriors. Caterine now can not stand the sound, much less the sight, of any Englishman. Because Caterine is without a husband, the hatefully Sir Hugh is trying to step-in and force her hand in marriage. This is why Sir Marmaduke must become her champion. With both their troubled pasts, they will struggle to overcome their demons and mistrust to find that love desired, is found. You will fall in love with the charming silver tongued devil, in more ways than one, (*G*). His courage and honor is second to none. You will find yourself routing for this scarred brute of a man, with each turn of a page, that is... BRIDE OF THE BEAST...

    delightful fourteenth century Scottish romance

    In 1330 Scotland, widow Lady Caterine Keith struggles to keep her strategically located Dunlaidir Castle safe from the odious Sassunach like malevolent Sir Hugh de la Hogue who insists she marry him. Her best friend Lady Rhona sends a message to Caterine¿s sister Linnet, married to Duneen Mackenzie, for help. Linnet obtains a pledge from loyal knight and friend Sir Marmaduke Strongbow to keep her sibling safe. Marmaduke arrives at the castle, but is rejected by Caterine not because of his scarred visage, but because he is English. In spite of his tainted blood, Caterine believes her sibling would only send someone she trusts. Caterine offers a pretend marriage, but the honorable Marmaduke insists on a real wedding. She agrees, not understanding that Marmaduke wants her not the estate. A sequel, BRIDE OF THE BEAST, is a delightful fourteenth century Scottish romance that brings back characters from DEVIL IN A KILT to include Marmaduke. The story line is typical of the sub-genre, but what makes it stand out is the lead couple especially the male protagonist. His honor, loyalty, and compassion make him a hero for any age while Caterine is an intrepid lady who is the perfect complement to the male champion. Historical readers will enjoy Sue-Ellen Welfonder¿s wonderful writing that shows she is one of the top knights of the era. Harriet Klausner

    Huge Let-down

    Based on the description I thought the book would be better. I could barly keep awake reading it. The men are wierd and the women are childish. The plot-line stinks and it was just plain boring. I wouldn't recomend this book to anyone.
