Title: One Enchanted Scottish Knight
Author: Laura Strickland
Genre: Scottish Historical Romance
From a young age, Tansy Bellrose Gant has been getting into trouble and wanting what she should not have. Just because she can make certain things happen by wishing doesn't mean she's a witch. But when she rashly curses a neighbor, her fellow villagers tie her to a stake at the crossroads and threaten to send her to the Royal Commission for trial.
Malcolm Montgomery is a man carrying an unbearable burden of guilt and obligation. The last thing he needs is an encounter with a troublesome wee lassie who just might be a witch. But once rescued, she won't go away. In fact, she insists on involving herself in his quest to ransom his brother, and she charms her way into his bed, as well.
Has Tansy merely enchanted him, or has she claimed his heart? When she faces the ultimate danger, how will love be enough to save her?
Malcolm Montgomery is a man on an impossible mission and his guilt weighs heavily upon his soul. While passing through a village, he witnesses something that makes his stomach turn: a lass tied to a post who the villagers claim is a witch. One glance into her silver eyes and Malcolm is helpless to her plea for freedom. But once he rescues her, she won’t leave his side. She insists on helping him with his mission to free his brother. The more he’s around her, the lighter his heart feels. Has she cast a spell on him or is this what the poets call love? When her life is in peril, can he save her in time?
One Enchanted Scottish Knight is a romantic story filled with everything I love in a historical romance: a rugged Scottish knight, a sassy heroine with magical abilities, a quest of some kind, historical accuracy and plenty of action. Laura Strickland transport readers to Scotland in this tale and I loved every minute of it. She doesn’t shy away from the hatred many people of this time period had for those with special abilities and how a whisper can condemn anyone to death. I applaud her as it adds such emotional angst to the plot. Malcolm’s growth in this story is immense and it’s a clear message of how love can heal. The ending, oh my goodness, so unexpected!
If you’re looking for a Scottish historical romance to dive into, read One Enchanted Scottish Knight. Highly recommend, especially to Outlander fans.
