MacFarland's Lass (Scottish Lasses, Book 1) by Glynnis Campbell

"A rich, sensual, pull-at-the-heartstrings romance"--Monica McCarty, NYT bestselling author

SCOTTISH LASSES...Meet the lasses in the world of Mary Queen of Scots...Like the Scottish thistle, they're lovely yet tough, beautiful yet prickly, and only the strongest and wisest heroes are able to elude their thorns to discover the tender blossom within.


A woman on the run...a man on the hunt. He has forty days to earn her trust. She has forty days to win his heart. They have forty days to outwit their enemies.

When Florie Gilder, the once-respected jeweler to Queen Mary, claims sanctuary in an abandoned church for a crime she didn't commit, huntsman Rane MacFarland, a local hero of the common folk, vows to protect her. But when his overlord charges him with preventing the fugitive lass's escape, Rane finds himself torn between duty and desire when he begins to fall for his spirited captive. And when powerful foes conspire to turn Rane and Florie against each other, they need courage, wits, and, most of all, love, to survive.

Story was pleasant enough but yeah, the seduction scenes were over done and too many in number. After first one, skimmed the rest to get pn with the book

Dear Ms. Campbell.... why haven't I found your wonderful books long before this???!!! This exciting tale between Florie and Rane was so enthralling and full of detail that I read it deep into the night. The story brings together two unlikely characters and creates a piece of art. Florie is trying to seek assylum in the santuary of the church and Rane, the hunter who has accidently shot her and who is so honerable and (sigh) hunky, ends up winning this woman's heart. I love the Viking chess game the most and her carvings add to the visual richness the reader gets to picture in their own minds. I loved it. My advise to the reader is just jump in and enjoy!

As others have said, the author was very long-winded and there were too many similes. One reference to the fire being a dragon sufficed. It felt at times that Glynnis was trying too hard to beat her concepts into the reader's head. I also agree that having non-noble characters made a delightful change. The characters were drawn well, but I do find myself wondering about the reasons behind Mavis's desperation to get the pomander.

This was a refreshing change from the typical historical romance novel characters involving the noble class. The main characters are a huntsman, a female goldsmith, and a blind priest.

I first thought maybe, I had read a few books and then thought ok I'll read this one. I'm sorry I read the other books first. I started reading and at 5 in the morning finished in one sitting. I loved it!

I have only recently discovered Glynnis Campbell, but I have really enjoyed the books of hers that I have read so far so I had high expectations going into the Scottish Lasses Series. McFarland's Lass didn't disappoint. This novel grabbed my attention right from the start and didn't let go, so I ended up devouring the book all in one sitting, in spite of everything else I should have been doing! When her family heirloom accidentally ends up in the hands of Lady Mavis, goldsmith Florie tries to refund the money for the return of the item, but is ultimately unsuccessful. Unwilling to lose the last link to her last living family member, Florie forces the money upon Lady Mavis, snatches the piece and runs. Lost in the forest, Florie's situation goes from bad to worse when huntsman Rane mistakes her for a deer and fires an arrow into her leg. Even though he is pledged to the Sheriff, and by extension to his wife, Lady Mavis, Rane's sense of honor or guilt leads him to take Florie to a nearby abandoned church where he convinces the former priest to return to grant Florie the protection of sanctuary. Over the course of the 40-day sanctuary period granted Florie, Rafe is torn between his duty to his sword Lord and his growing affection for Florie. Will Florie soften her independent and stubborn nature and open her heart to the man who could potentially hurt her? Will Rafe choose love or duty? And what will the unpredictable and furious Lady Mavis do, as she has vowed she will not wait idly by for 40 days? The dialog between Rafe and Florie is humorous and lively, and the love scenes are steamy and engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read in one sitting and look forward to reading the next two books in the series.
