BRIDE OF LOCHBARR
When her conniving brother brings Marianne from Normandy to Scotland, his plans are to marry her to the first wealthy man he can find. This way he can finance his rebuilding of the keep he has "stolen" from the Mac Tarens.
Adair Seamus Mac Taren hates all things Norman, until he meets Marianne. Willing to risk his own life, he helps her escape marriage to the rich old man her brother has chosen.
With that brash act their lives are bound together, and a Pandora's box of old hatreds and new dangers is opened.
Moore captures the atmosphere of medieval Scotland with its clan loyalty, feuds, mores and customs. Her strong-willed characters and their fight for justice will certainly keep readers entertained and turning the pages as quickly as possible. SENSUAL (Aug., 350 pp., $5.50)
