Overview

Haunted by horrors of his childhood, Dugan MacMillan has sworn to protect his clan at any cost . . . even if he must search for a rumored treasure and kidnap a beautiful thief to do it.

The MacMillan laird has never crossed paths with anyone quite like Lady Maura Duncanson. After he saved her from certain death, the comely vixen had the audacity to disappear with his treasure map, his only key to restoring his clan. Dugan has no qualms about taking Maura hostage, especially when he learns she is to wed a wealthy old baron who will pay him a fortune in ransom . . . a fortune his people desperately need.

But, of course, Maura has no intention of returning to her despicable fiancé. And the longer Dugan spends in the bewitching hellion’s presence, the less willing he is to surrender her to any man . . . at any price.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Maguire’s trilogy launch highlights clan warfare in 18th-century Scotland. Dugan MacMillan, the MacMillan laird, needs a way to pay the rents on his land before the duke of Argyll evicts him and the members of his clan. Gold from a failed uprising is rumored to be hidden in the highlands, and Dugan goes in search of it. Along the way he meets Maura Duncanson, whose father is forcing her to marry the aging Baron Kildary. Dugan decides to hold Maura for ransom from Kildary and promptly becomes enamored of her beauty and immeasurable resolve in the face of adversity. He must decide whether love is worth the risk of letting Maura accompany him on his treasure hunt. Maguire (Seducing the Governess) makes smooth, fast-paced writing look effortless, and the story is peppered with satisfying romantic interludes but somewhat marred by a lack of character depth and development. Agent: Paige Wheeler, Folio Literary Management. (Aug.)

I read THE WARRIOR LAIRD by Margo Maguire and found it an exciting Scottish Medieval historical romance. It's fast-paced and filled with action, romance and intrigue. It is well written and fun to read. The story-line was well developed and nicely blended with her characters. I recommend this Scottish romance! You won't be disappointed!

Book One of the Highlander Brothers series. Both Maura and Dugan have a desperate need of money to help with their dire circumstances. Maura wants to save her sister, and Dugan needs to save his clan. Each come across pieces of a treasure map that has been torn into four sections, and the hunt is on! This is a fresh take on the Highland romance. It is a treasure hunt across the Highlands. Plus, it is set later than a lot of them - guns are a weapon being used. If you're looking for a Highlander willing to risk it all, this is the book for you!

Dugan and Maura's story was an exciting adventure through and through. Maura runs away from the old man her father has intened her to marry. She discovers part of a treasure map and by accident over hears some Highlanders talking about their part of the same map. Stealing their part of the map and takes off on her own. Soon she finds trouble from both rough rogues and the Highlanders who come searching for the map. The whole story is amazing . With of course romance definately included.
