New Historical Fiction Romance by Amy Jarecki–The Highland Chieftain–7/31/18!
Lady Mairi MacKenzie is humiliated. Her betrothed has decided to marry someone other than her. She is not overly worried though. Being the first daughter of an Earl, Lady Mairi won’t have to wait long before she is betrothed again. But, when Laird Duncan MacRae proposed marriage, right after being jilted, Mairi was mortified. She was not about to accept a pity marriage. So she promptly declined the Laird’s offer. Her father would not have allowed her to marry Laird Dunn anyway; because he was not a titled gentleman.
Lady Mairi’s father was known for his cold, cruel, brutal ways. He was always kind to Lady Mairi, though, so she only half-believed what was said about him. But when her heart began to fall for Laird Dunn MacRae, Lady Mairi was shocked at her father’s reaction. He was not only cruel and ruthless to Laird Dunn, but also to her. Lady Mairi was left with a painful decision. Does she choose the only family she’s ever known, or does Lady Mairi, follow the man she loves, and become her father’s enemy?
The Highland Chieftain is a captivating, romantic tale. If you enjoy adult historical fiction romance, you’ll love The Highland Chieftain.
