Overview

Honora, a duke's daughter, knows better than to expect her marriage to be a love match, but her uncles' choice of a vain, greedy widower won't do either. She has her welfare and the future of her sisters to think of. "I'd rather marry the devil himself," she tells them, and then she meets ... Brec McCloud, the mysterious new Laird of the Isle of Myst. He seeks a lady for his castle for his own dark reasons, and he is willing to give up much to win Lady Honora's hand in marriage. One suitor rejected and war on the horizon, Honora is forced to accept his magical courtship and passionate attentions. Ultimately she accepts his proposal of marriage which sets her on a journey to the western isles and world of healers, pirates, and sinister superstitions. At the Laird's ancestral home where she reigns as the lady of the castle, she discovers a kelpie, a fairy flag, a tale of murder and cruel betrayal. With a woman's special strength, she fights for her Laird as an enemy's lies threaten to tear them apart...before they can speak of love. [Cover art Dirk A. Wolf]

SPEAK OF LOVE is a wonderful Scottish love story. This is a fantastic story filled with all kinds of political intrigue and true feelings and one I highly recommend to all lovers of Scottish love stories.

Oh, the sheer perfection of this book! Every time I read a Linda Madl book, I feel as if I am being blown away right into the wonderful story and into the wonderful characters' lives. SPEAK OF LOVE has all the elements that I look for in a good romance novel. Linda Madl is fast becoming a must-read author, in my opinion.

The Scottish setting well researched which provides a wild and romantic backdrop to the story. The characters are captivating and the fast paced story and plot twists will keep you turning pages to the very end. Wonderful engaging and poignant story.

This is a delightful tale--humor offsets mystery and weaves a page-turner. Highly recommended.
