9781501291678: Highlander Betrayed (Guardians of the Targe)

Deep in the rugged Scottish countryside lies the Highland Targe, an ancient relic that, along with its Guardian, protects the heart of the Highlands. For centuries, the MacAlpin clan has watched over the Targe, but Lady Elspet, the current Guardian, is gravely ill. Her niece Rowan MacGregor, the rock of the family, is doing everything she can to hold her clan together when she meets Nicholas fitz Hugh. Handsome and charming, Nicholas quickly joins clan life — yet he is not what he seems. A cunning spy, Nicholas is charged by the king of England with stealing the Targe, part of a plot to break the Scottish rebellion. Despite his loyalty to the king, Nicholas finds himself falling for beautiful Rowan. When Lady Elspet’s health worsens and the guardianship is in question, Nicholas must choose between the king’s will and his own. Can he betray his king and mission? Or will he turn on the woman he loves and the family he has come to care for?

About the Author:

Laurin Wittig was marked by her Scottish heritage at birth, when her parents chose her uniquely spelled name from a plethora of Scottish family monikers. At ten, she attended her first MacGregor clan gathering and her first ceilidh, where she danced with the hereditary chieftain of the clan. At eleven, she visited Scotland, and it has fueled her imagination ever since. She studied anthropology at Brown University before launching a career in the computer industry. But as a voracious reader, it was only natural she would become a storyteller too. She penned her first book when her children were young, writing whenever they napped. Her novel The Devil of Kilmartin won the National Readers' Choice Award for short historical romance, and all of her books have appeared on the Amazon Top 100 Historical Romance and Top 100 Historical Fiction lists. Wittig lives in southeastern Virginia with her two children, her husband, and their rescue Eskie.

Review:

"Laurin Wittig weaves a lush tale, filled with characters you love, and set in a world you never want to leave." —Tanya Anne Crosby, New York Times bestselling author

"Laurin Wittig has a gift for writing fresh, romantic, passionate Scottish medievals. Highlander Betrayed is one of the most compelling medieval historical romances I have ever read. It has everything: romance, smooth writing, an unpredictable plot, and a wee bit of the paranormal. I loved it!" —New York Times bestselling author Colleen Gleason

"...a great love story, complete with betrayal and magic...a real page turner." —Linda Hays-Gibbs, The Romance Reviews, 5 Stars
