The Highlander’s Choice by Callie Hutton

The Highlanders Choice

The Scottish Highlands, 1815

Lady Sybil Lacey is every inch an English woman. She’s horrified her best friend is wedding a barbarian Scot. For aren’t Scots naught but brutish, whiskey-swilling lechers? So to find herself secretly attracted to the tall and devastatingly handsome Scottish laird of Bedlay Castle is quite disconcerting…

Liam MacBride is convinced that English ladies are silly sassenachs who think of nothing but social events and clothes. So why is he intensely drawn to Lady Sybil? All they do is quarrel…until loathing turns into undeniable lust.

A tempestuous, fiery romance between an English lady and a Scottish laird cannot end well.

A Short Excerpt

After a few minutes of staring up at his stony expression, Sybil said, “I can walk, you know.”

He shook his head and continued on.

“Are you angry about something?”

“Nay. ’Tis sorry I am for your injury, but if I had to spend another minute in that lass’s company, I might have been forced to tie my neck cloth around her mouth.”

Sybil covered her lips with her four fingers and giggled. “She is very young.”

“Aye. A curse to be sure.”

“You were young once.”

He raised his eyebrows at her. “Never that young, I can assure ye.”

They reached the castle, and with the others either at the picnic grounds or scavenging for the game, the great hall was quiet. Servants scurried about taking care of their afternoon chores. Liam stopped one of the young maids. “Is Mrs. Galbraith about?”

The maid gave a quick curtsy and said, “No, my laird. She went off to the market.”

Liam nodded and headed up the stairs. Sybil twisted in his arms and looked over his shoulder at the maid. “Is my lady’s maid, Bessie, nearby?”

“Nay, my lady. She went with Mrs. Galbraith.”

When he gained the second floor, he headed in the direction of her bedchamber. “What are you doing?”

“Bringing ye to yer bedchamber. Then I will get a cold compress for yer foot.”

“You can’t come into my bedchamber!”

He grinned. “Now, lass. Ye heard the maid. No one is about to assist ye. Dinna fash yerself.” He stopped in front of her door, shifting her body so he could unlatch the portal. “Here we are. I’ll place ye in the chair by the fireplace and get ye something for yer foot.”

It was disconcerting how the man had a habit of rescuing her and then ending up in her bedchamber. Either she’d become much more inept since she’d left England, or fate was having a grand time toying with her.

How to Marry a Royal Highlander, The Renegade Royals #4, by Vanessa Kelly

Illegitimate, yet thoroughly irresistible, the Renegade Royals are leaving behind their careers as daring spies for the greatest adventure of all…


At sixteen, Alasdair Gilbride, heir to a Scottish earldom, fled the Highlands and an arranged betrothal. Ten years later, Alasdair must travel home to face his responsibilities. It’s a task that would be much easier without the distracting presence of the most enticing woman he’s ever met…

After one escapade too many, Eden Whitney has been snubbed by the ton. The solution: rusticating in the Scottish wilderness, miles from all temptation. Except, of course, for brawny, charming Alasdair. The man is so exasperating she’d likely kill him before they reach the border—if someone else weren’t trying to do just that. Now Eden and Alasdair are plunging into a scandalous affair with his life and her reputation at stake—and their hearts already irreparably lost…

A Good Rogue is Hard to Find, The Lords of Worth #2, by Kelly Bowen

A Good Rogue cover

He thought he’d seen it all.

The rogue’s life has been good to William Somerhall: He has his fortune, his racehorses, and his freedom. Then he moves in with his mother. It seems the eccentric Dowager Duchess of Worth has been barely skirting social disaster-assisted by one Miss Jenna Hughes, who is far too bright and beautiful to be wasting her youth as a paid companion. Now home to keep his mother from ruin, William intends to learn what’s afoot by keeping his friends close – and the tempting Miss Hughes closer still. . . .

Until he meets her.

He’s tall, dark, and damnably intelligent – unfortunately for Jenna. She and the duchess are in the “redistribution business,” taking from the rich and giving to the poor, and it’s going great – until he shows up. But even as William plots to make an honest woman out of her, Jenna will use all her wiles to reveal just how bad a rogue he can be . . .

About the Author


Kelly Bowen grew up in Manitoba, Canada. She worked her way through her teenage years as a back country trail guide and ranch hand. She attended the University of Manitoba and earned a Master of Science degree in veterinary physiology and endocrinology.

But it was Kelly’s infatuation with history and a weakness for a good love story that led her down the path of historical romance. When she is not writing, she seizes every opportunity to explore ruins and battlefields.

Currently, Kelly lives in Winnipeg with her husband and two boys, all of whom are wonderfully patient with the writing process. Except, that is, when they need a goalie for street hockey.
