At nearly twenty-one, Gillyanne Murray is considered past the marrying age. Despite travelling to the king's court a few times, she is yet to attract the eye of any man. And as much as she longs to feel the happiness and excitement that she sees in her married female cousins, she has resigned herself to the fact that men just simply find her unattractive, with her faintly mismatched eyes, short stature and lack of curves.
From the age of fifteen, Connor MacEnroy has been the laird of Deilcladach after the deaths of his parents caused by a longstanding feud with other clans. Having lost everything after that tragedy twelve years before, he has rebuilt Deilcladach, raised his siblings and managed the survival of his people. When he, and the two other neighboring lairds hear that an unmarried woman now owns Ald-dabhach, they seek the king's permission to fight for control over the keep.
And so when Gillyanne decides to visit Ald-dabhach, the small keep that a doting uncle has gifted her, little does she know that she would be fighting off three neighboring lairds who have gained the king's permission to marry her and control her keep. When she refuses their proposal, they then took turns attacking her keep, but although she manages to repel their individual attacks, Gilly knows that a combined one could result to bloodshed, therefore she has no other choice but to pick one from them. And based on her initial attraction to him, she chooses Connor.
And so the fun begins.Read more ›
Gilly is able to defeat the 3 knights who are on her doorstep to try and take her hostage to marry her, to get her lands as they boarder their own. It is a riot how she is able to repel all 3 of the armies.
I enjoyed the writers style of writing as well as the strong woman character who is going to make her marriage work in spite of everything that is happening.
I recommend getting all her series of the highland's
After only one night at her new home three neighboring lairds show up demanding she marry one of them. She is able to repel each mans attack while not spilling a drop of blood in an effort to buy some time waiting for her father. Whom she knows will be able to help her fix this dilemma.
Dad didn't come in time and she ends up choosing Connor. A closed up and hard man. One pushed to be after all the adults are killed off in a feud and as a teen lad has the sole responsibility of leading the widows and orphans through surviving.
Gillyanne grows to deeply love Connor and the passion is amazing. But if Connor can't open up at least a little bit Gilly has a out. Will she take it? Will Connor give her the three little words she needs? Find out.
