Aloha to Cathy & DD MacRae and THE HIGHLANDER'S NORSE BRIDE (Hardy Heroines Book 4)


National Tartan Day is Friday, April 6, celebrating all things Scottish. Let's get the party started with Cathy & DD MacRae's THE HIGHLANDER'S NORSE BRIDE:

Caught between two kings vying for sovereignty of the Isles and Western Scotland, Hanna of Hällstein has lost everything—and vows to repay the Scots for the deaths of her husband and children. Fleeing the smoldering ruins of her village, Hanna crosses the Strait of Mull and chooses the Laird of Clan MacLean as the object of her revenge.

Alex MacLean has buried a wife and three children. Ignoring the clamors for him to wed again and produce an heir, he finds himself drawn to a Norse refugee who defies him and tests the limits of his patience—and his power as Laird.

Torn between revenge and honor, Hanna fears setting aside her vow of vengeance means she has lost her reason for living. Alex is determined to save her, even if it means defying the king.

Cathy MacRae lives on the sunny side of the Arbuckle Mountains where she and her husband read, write, and tend the garden—with the help of the dogs, of course.

You can visit with her on facebook, or read her blogs and learn about her books at cathymacraeauthor.com. Drop her a line—she loves to hear from readers!

  2. The brogue and the tartan designs.

  3. I have a lot of Scottish blood on my mother's side. The skirl of the pipes does stir my heart.
