Overview

The Only Man Who Could Save Her

Linet Dancort will not be sold. But that's essentially what her brother intends to do--to trade her like so much chattel to widen his already vast scope of influence. Linet will seize any opportunity to escape her fate--and opportunity comes in the form of a rebel prisoner locked in her brother's dungeon, predatory and fearsome, and sentenced to hang in the morning.

Would First Need Saving Himself

Seathan MacGruder, Earl of Grey, is not unused to cheating death. But even this legendary Scottish warrior is surprised when a beautiful Englishwoman creeps to his cell and offers him his freedom. What Linet wants in exchange, though--safe passage to the Highlands--is a steep price to pay. For the only thing more dangerous than the journey through embattled Scotland is the desire that smolders between these two fugitives the first time they touch. . .

"His Conquest --one part heaven, one part sin."

"Passion, danger, lush history and a touch of magic." --Hannah Howell, New York Times Bestselling Author

    A Heart Pounding Romance!

    Cosby crafts a sensual novel full of excitement, adventure, and love with "His Conquest." Set in Scotland, 1297, the Scots are fighting for their freedom from the oppressive English King, Edward I. Lord Fulke Tearleach, has been given Breac Castle and holds the Scottish Lord, Seathan Grey in it's dungeon. When Tearleach's sister, Linet, frees the Scot, she sets herself and Seathan on a path full of danger and sizzling with heat. The novel opens with Linet making a life changing decision. She chooses to go against her brother's wishes to marry, and frees Fulke's (her brother) hostage, Lord Seathan Grey from the dungeon, extracting Seathan's promise to take her to the Highlands to be with her mother's clan. Seathan suspects her motives, but agrees since the alternative is death. Using secret passageways, Linet escorts Seathan out of the castle, but the path is fraught with danger as her brother's knights search the keep. Linet also has another problem - her overwhelming attraction to Seathan. Seathan is grateful for Linet's actions and he soon finds himself giving her a certain amount of trust. He's stimulated by the brave noblemen, wanting to explore what is growing between them. After evading Tearleach's men and hiding in a cave. Seathan's brothers find him and escort the couple back to Lochshire Castle, Seathan's home. Seathan is torn between duty and Linet, wanting to claim the Englishwoman for his own. However, when he discovers Linet's secret - that she's Tearleach's sister, his trust is shattered. Can Seathan find it in his heart to forgive Linet, or will he push her away and deny the smoldering desire he has for her? Cosby's novel starts off with an action packed opening that immediately grabs the reader's attention. Along with a forbidden kiss, she creates a pulse-pounding romance, finding just the right mix of plot and character driven storytelling. The descriptions use a great economy of words to paint 1297 Scotland and the dialogue adds an extra layer of authenticity to the story. Both Seathan and Linet are compelling characters. Linet is loyal to the bone and embodies a true noblewoman with her courage and steadfast belief in her heart. Seathan doubts the power of love, not trusting it, but with Linet, he dares to believe. The novel is sophisticated for romance readers. The love scenes are hot, sexy, and seductive, embodying the passion the couple has discovered. "His Conquest" is a delicious romp to another time and place and will have the reader believing in the power of love. I simply did not want to put it down.

    Action-packed Scottish historical romance

    Lady Linet Dancort grew up with more freedom and education than most women in her lifetime. After her parents' death, her brother, Lord Tearlach, promises her that she would be free to choose her husband. Linet learns of her brother's vicious nature and greed when Lord Tearlach forces her to to marry an abusive nobleman in order to gain a political alliance. Linet's only chance to escape such a fate is to seek refuge with her dead mother's clan in the Highlands. Being in the middle of the First War of Scottish Independence, her chances of surviving the journey by herself are minimum. Furious with her brother's treachery, she takes revenge by freeing Seathan MacGruder, Earl of Grey, from Lord Tearlach's dungeon, in exchange for being escorted to her destination. Hours before being executed, a mysterious and beautiful English woman, who claims to be half Scottish, offers Seathan a deal he cannot refuse. Injured and weak after being tortured, he needs Linet's support and knowledge of the secret tunnels under the castle to survive. He suspects her motives, but respects her secrecy, ignoring the immensity of it, she's the sister of his worse enemy. A woman who saves his life, who he desires and who later will mistrust, believing she's a spy acting in collusion with her brother. A breathtaking adventure with great fighting scenes and creative hideouts begins. From the first page to the last, they are closely pursued or attacked. Chases and battles interwoven with abundant sexual tension and passionate kissing. When they finally make love, the scene is one of the most touching I'd ever read. An engaging page-turner, the kind of book to take along for a ride.

    fun reading of historical novels

    For some reason this period is very interesting to me. There is sex involved to keep the reader engaged, but as an adult, it is not told in such a way as to be offensive. It is just life as it is. I enjoyed this book

    Recommended Read

    Lady Linet Dancort wants to escape her controlling evil brother who plans to sell her off to a man who's been known to abuse his wives to death. She wants to choose her own husband. Seeing only one way out of this situation, she rescues Seathan MacGruder, Earl of Grey, who is being held captive in her brother's dungeon. She hopes she can get him to promise to take her to the Highlands to her relatives.

    Seathan is very surprised when the beautiful woman rescues him. She will only tell him that her name is Linet and that she wants his promise to take her to her relatives in the Highlands. In exchange for his promise, she will free him. Seathan doesn't know if he can trust Linet, but if she'll free him, he'll say and do just about anything for her that's within his power. First, he has his own agenda to attend to - revenge on his enemies and saving the rightful King of Scotland from certain death. What he doesn't count on is falling in love with a woman with as many secrets as Linet seems to have. It is a dangerous and a foolhardy thing to do and just may cost him his life.

    His Conquest by Diana Cosby is the third book in the His series. I found this to be a great stand alone novel, but having read this one, I want to go back and read the previous novels.

    Seathan is a strong man. He is loyal, strong, and full of honor. I found myself really drawn to his character; to me he was the perfect Highlander. From his dark hair to his deep green eyes, he had my heart from page one. Even as a prisoner, you could feel his strength pour off the pages. Linet is a strong woman. She knows what she wants and is willing to do what it takes to achieve it, even if it terrifies her to try. I found her strength and inner steel to be very admirable. I also felt she was a little ahead of her time; she wants to determine her own destiny, a concept pretty foreign for women in her time period. However, I loved her progressive attitude and felt that it made her a believable and strong character, one I was cheering for all the way through the book.

    I think anyone who loves books about Scottish Highlanders has to read His Conquest. I am personally going to keep this novel on my keeper shelf and look forward to the next novel in this series.

    Sub-genre fans who appreciate a strong sense of time and place will enjoy this exciting wonderful escape to love

    In 1297 Scotland Lady Linet is outraged by her "loving" already extremely powerful brother who has given her in marriage to a known abusive lord to gain a strong alliance. Not one to accept being treated as chattel and compounded by who her sibling sold her too, Lady Linet Dancort needs to flee but also enact a bit of vengeance on her pompous brother.

    Linet liberates the legendary warrior Seathan MacGruder from her sibling's prison on the stipulation that the Earl escorts her to her mother. Having no choice if he is to live beyond tomorrow morning when he is scheduled to hang, he agrees. They flee together with Lord Dancort in pursuit. As they trek through danger, each realizes they have fallen in love with their natural enemy.

    The third MacGruder Brother late thirteenth century tale (see His Capture and His Woman) is a wonderful historical saga that uses the romance as a subplot to bring out Scotland during the time of the Wallace rebellion. Fans will root for Linet and Seathan while also hissing at her brother although in fairness it was a sign of the times to deal single women as a commodity; which Diana Crosby portrays very well. Sub-genre fans who appreciate a strong sense of time and place will enjoy this exciting wonderful escape to love.
