Get swept away by the romance of the Highlands in three historical romance novellas from Harlequin!

The Warrior and the Rose by Brenda Joyce

Lady Juliana MacDougall prays for her loved ones to survive battle against Robert Bruce...but the battle comes to her when her lands are attacked by a band of Highlanders, including a man wearing the colors of her clan's worst enemy. Taken hostage by Alasdair Og, Juliana quickly learns he's as exceptional a lover as he is a ruthless warrior. But how can she ever love Alasdair when he's her blood enemy?

The Forbidden Highlander by Terri Brisbin

Honor-bound by an arranged betrothal, James Murray never anticipated falling in love with his intended bride's dearest friend instead. The passion between James and Elizabeth MacLerie is undeniable, but they are torn between love and loyalty to their clans….

Rescued by the Highland Warrior by Michelle Willingham

Celeste de Laurent is determined to never again live in poverty. After sacrificing love for a secure marriage, she now stands to lose everything as a widow. Her only hope is to bear an heir—and what better man to father her child, and save her from a terrible fate, than Dougal MacKinloch, the only man she ever loved?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collection of three novellas set in the Scottish Highlands during the 14th and the late 13th century is anchored by Joyce’s “The Warrior and the Rose.” Juliana MacDougall, her sister, and her nephews are kidnapped by family enemy Alasdair Og in retribution for actions taken by her brother. Within one night, she is helplessly attracted to Alasdair and sharing his bed. In Michelle Willingham’s “Rescued by the Highland Warrior,” the rather unlikable heroine is a recent widow whose sister-in-law will throw her and her young sister out if she is proven not to be bearing a child. She sets out to find the man she rejected in favor of her wealthy older husband and asks him to impregnate her. The best story of the three is Terri Brisbin’s “The Forbidden Highlander.” The year is 1370. Elizabeth MacLerie loves James Murray, who is engaged to her best friend Ciara. Ciara loves Tavis. All are doing their duty and marrying for honor and family gain. But Elizabeth is keeping a secret. These characters have more depth than those in the other stories, facing complex issues that must be dealt with before happily ever after ensues.

Verdict Though the trilogy is not a must-have, all the stories have a distinctly charming Highland flair. Brisbin’s tale is a cut above many similar novellas.—B. Allison Gray, Goleta Lib., CA
