About this book…

Lost in Tudor Scotland
Found by the Highlander!

Part of The Lochmore Legacy: a Scottish castle through the ages! Far from her home in France, Marguerite Vallon escapes her arranged marriage to a man she despises. Stowing away in a stranger’s cart, she finds herself headed deep into the Highlands with Ewan Lochmore, new Earl of Glenarris! Ewan vows to protect her. But maybe the freedom Marguerite has been searching for can be found with this rugged warrior…

My review…

At last!! Part three of The Lochmore Legacy has arrived and it’s a brilliant addition to the series! I flew through this one in an afternoon and loved every single minute spent within its pages. Elisabeth Hobbs is the writer who brought me to historical Mills and Boon and she’s still my favourite writer in this genre. You always find yourself deeply involved in her atmospheric settings and I look forward to every book she writes as she’s not written a hero I haven’t fallen in love with yet! And in A Runaway Bride for the Highlander she’s delivers on all levels! Everyone knows I love a Grumpy Scotsman so Ewan Lochmore, the new Earl of Glenarris, fulfilled all expectations for me!

Marguerite is a young French woman due to marry a man she despises-he is a nasty piece of work so I wasn’t surprised! When she works out her escape to head back to France, her plan is to stow away with Ewan and his party. When he finds her, he vows to protect her from his enemy but as he is heading in the opposite direction to where Marguerite wants to go, he is stuck with her for rather longer than either of them anticipate. And that’s when the heat kicks in as they are inexplicably drawn to each other despite their differences. I loved watching their relationship develop. It felt so realistic and deeply emotional as they explored their unexpected desire for each other.

Elisabeth Hobbs writes beautifully immersive historical romance that has been intricately researched for maximum impact on the reader. You can’t help but be drawn into another time and place, feeling bereft when it’s all over. I loved these characters and how they fitted into the whole Lochmore Legacy series and I’m now sad that it’s nearly all over. But before it is, there is the last book to look forward to, Secrets of A Highland Warrior by Nicole Locke which is out later this month! And I can’t wait! This series has been such a hit with me-it’s a brilliant concept that has worked perfectly.

Highly recommended by me!

Meet the author…

Elisabeth grew up in York, where she spent her teenage years looking for a handsome Roman or Viking to sweep her off her feet.

She achieved her dream of becoming an author after finishing third in Harlequin’s SYTYCW contest 2013 and being offered a two-book contract. When she isn’t writing, she spends her time reading and is a pro at cooking while holding a book!

Elisabeth lives in Cheshire with her husband, two children and two cats with ridiculous names.
