Overview

New York Times bestselling author Deborah Smith evokes the stunning beauty of Scotland in this spin on the clan wars—as a sexy CEO finds himself abducted by a brazen beauty determined to save her village.
 
Elgiva MacRoth descends from a long line of bold Scots willing to fight for their heritage. When her picturesque town comes under siege by a corporate raider, she devises a daring plan to stop billionaire Douglas Kincaid. But kidnapping a man off the rooftop of his penthouse and holding him hostage proves far less complicated than saving herself from his intoxicating sensual assault.
 
The stunning beauty with her golden eyes and fighting spirit make captivity feel like a fantasy. The desire heating up is enough to make them both forget the battle, and surrender to something far more pleasurable. But Douglas has his own dreams for this lovely spot of Scottish land. And he has a proposal that he hopes will convince Elgiva to give up her hard line and give in to him in every way that matters. With a warrior’s will, he’s fighting for his legacy, his heart, and the woman of his dreams.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Remember the Time, The Vow, This Fierce Splendor, The Baron, Lightning That Lingers, Tall, Dark, and Lonesome, and Dream Lover.

    revisit favorite stories from the past

    remember reading this book years ago. I still like it and enjoyed reading again. Now I wish I could go back and read other books by her again.
    Douglas Kincaid is a selfmade billionare. He collects things and puts the Kincaid name on everything including the dog. He thinks its time for a wife so he is sitting behind a one sided mirror being told about the different women at his party. When a big beautiful woman peers at the mirror and gives him an eyefull.
    Elgiva MacRoth drew his attention and got him to show her his garden on the roof than shot him with a tranquiler gun. Kidnapped him off his own highrise building and put him in a cell in highlands of Scottland. Elgiva is a widow and plans to keep Douglas in the cell for a month till his agreement to buy option runs out. He plans to buy her home and village and kick everyone out turning it to a tourist village. He plans to help them find new homes but they have been thier for generations.
    Elgiva is also planning to teach him about his own history of the Kincaid clan, She plans to take care of him feed him well and promises he won't be hurt.
    Kincaid believes he will be rescued by his security long before his option to buy runs out. He is furious with her tries to embrass her, hurt her and he is attracted to her.
    They are both stubborn and determened to have thier own way as they fall for each other.
    I have read a lot of her books and plan to read more of her works. After Elgiva story is a lot of book excerpts from different authors that will be available again. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.

    Fun and Steamy

    His golden eyed redhead captor sure makes staying in a small stone cabin in the middle of nowhere, Scotland, interesting. She cooks good trying to feed him into stupor, and it doesn't help that he feels drawn to her no matter the situation. Douglas Kincaid, a billionaire, isn't used to of being not in control and the fact that the woman holding him against his will is just about as proud and stubborn as he is.

    Elgiva's plan is simple, hold Kincaid in the little cottage until he can't be trouble for her village, easy enough. But what is not easy is when the man behind the bars is gorgeous and seems to eye her in a way that makes her stomach twist in the very good way. However this is to end for her she won't go down without a fight, she's doing this for her clansmen, for her village, she has nothing to lose, except maybe her heart to dark haired man who is trying to tempt her from his half of the cabin.

    ~~~
    "I'll make trade, El. I'll give you the microphone back if you give me what I want," Douglas told her. She shivered. "What would you be wanting?" He met her eyes with a gaze that had suddenly become intense. "Five minutes of you. Just standing here and not making any protests." Elgiva understood perfectly now, and her knees grew weak. "I'll just let you starve."
    ~~~

    This wonderfully tempting story is fun to read and easy to finish in less than a day. Chemistry between Elgiva and Douglas is sparkling, both proud, unyielding, both going for exactly what they want - but stubborn enough to not see they both might end up wanting the same thing. A nice trip to Scotland to see the battle of wills. This book sure isn't boring! Its fun, entertaining, seductive and worth a read.

    Legends

    Legends was an exciting, fun chess game of intrigue, attraction, and love.

    For all the contemporary romance novels in the market today, Legends is one that I will remember due to it's off kilter premiss, endearing characters, sweet love story, and Sam (a brilliant dog).

    Douglas Kincaid is an enigma - he is outwardly one person while inwardly the polar opposite. He's a multi-millionaire (maybe even billionaire) who has branded everything he's owned or taken over with his name. He wants the world to see the success he's claimed and admire the drive he possesses. Behind the public eye, however, he's an incredibly down-to-earth man with a heart of gold. His biggest secret is that he's lonely and is ready to settle down, but the woman he chooses must be a perfect blend of wit, business sense, beauty, and sincerity.

    Enter Elgiva... She instantly captures Douglas' attention and, soon after introductions, literally captures his entire being. Elgiva is heir to land in Scotland that Douglas is planning on acquiring. If the sale of the land falls through - due to a missed deadline, for example - she will be awarded the property. The very small population of her town is counting on her to secure the land so that they can remain in their homes versus relocate as they would be ordered to do if Douglas Kindcaid's acquisition succeeds. Talk about pressure!!!! What is a girl to do? Kidnap and hold Douglas Kincaid captive, of course!

    And so begins the cat and mouse games of business, attraction, and, ultimately, love. Legends definitely captivated me from the very first page. The characters were richly created and developed. The ever changing strategies and leaders (Douglas and Elgiva) kept the story moving at a nice pace. The chemistry and relationship between Douglas and Elgiva was challenging, stubborn, and endearing - truly a breath of fresh air.

    I highly recommend Legends to any reader who is looking for a romantic tale that breaks away from the mold and puts the woman in charge... most of the time... ;)

    Thank you Deborah Smith for a wonderfully told romantic present-day fairy tale!!!!

    Legends

    I received this ARC from netgalley
    It has honestly been so long since I have read a really good straight romance novel. When I read the description for this on netgalley, I was instantly drawn to it. Not only was it contemporary, but it was set with a Scottish theme. And this time it wasn't some hunky highlander, but a strong willed, very powerful fiery red headed female! I was instantly infatuated, and I was more than willing to grab onto the chance to read and review this novel.
    Let's just say I was not disappointed! Right from the beginning we get a taste of our 'hero' and well; he is suave, dashing, rich to all high heaven, and arrogant as all get up. Did I like him? No! Why, because he was almost downright wicked to Elgiva. Ok, yes the woman kidnaps him. But its not like she is abusing him in anyway, she is keeping him warm, feed, clothed, and has all his commodities from home available to him. However, there is no battle that Douglas is not willing to lose. Even if Elgiva is one of the most beautiful women he has ever seen, not to mention once he gets her going, one of the most sensual.
    I was fanning myself more than once, and ready to yell at our daft hero more than once in this book. The story just flow smooth as a nice cool spring day. I ended up falling in love with both our main characters and hoping to God that they both got over their stubbornness and realized they were in love with one another. As much as I wanted to beat Douglas over the head with a frying pan, I wanted to fall into his arms, kissing him till my lips ached, and tell him "Take me you big stud!" Oh, yes the man is that well written and hot to trot!
    Elgiva was my kind of heroine. First off she could cook and make clothes. At first I was rolling my eyes in worry that she was going to turn out dim witted and a Susie homemaker. I was very soon eating my words. Deborah Smith has written a strong and very likable heroine that I would totally want to befriend or live up to if I knew this woman in real life. She doesn't accept defeat and she was unwilling to allow her while village to turn to nothing all because a rich man was drawn to it.
    After many misunderstandings, a few sexual stand offs that lead me yelling at the book going "Just do it already please!!!!" I was left wanting more of Deborah Smith, and loving the fact that Douglas and Elgiva were getting their happily ever after!

    Welcome to the Past

    Legends by Deborah Smith Loveswept eISBN-978-0-307-79666-0

    Douglas Kincaid is a self-made billionaire and his name was stamped on everything he owned, even an Island. He sat in his office on New Years Eve looking through the two way mirror at the guests. He was not going to stamp his name on a wife. As his Gert, his executive secretary, was telling him what blondes were present and available someone suddenly came in front of the mirror. A tall blonde in a green dress. As she looked into the mirror and checked her mirror and make-up she leaned enough for him to get a view of all her assets. He liked the whole picture. He sent Gert to find out about her and to bring her in his office but the woman wanted to meet him on his rooftop, where he had created a forest. Once there he quickly found himself shot with a tranquilizer and the next time he woke up he was in a cell.

    Elgive MacRoth could not help but admire this man they kidnapped. She also had disdain for him. She had read all about him, about his wealth. He was buying up their family heritage and all the people would be forced leave their homes and farms. They needed to keep him prisoner until it was too late to buy it. Her hateful Uncle Angus had taken over when her parents died and put her brother Rob and herself out of the home. And he tried to take away the rest in his death but if Kincaid did not buy it then everything would return to it's rightful heirs. Legends and the family's heritage was important to the MacRoth clan of Druradeen, Scotland. Elgive wanted to remind Douglas of the legends of the Kincaids as well but he refused to believe he had roots here. He had tried to trace his roots here and there was nothing.

    When Douglas is rescued by his security team he turns the tables and takes Elgive with him. He tries to bathe her in luxury on his private Island but he has to see that material things are not what is important to her. The legend of the MacRoth and Kincaid feud is.

    Contains sexual situations
