TO CATCH A HIGHLANDER
Love and laughter, poignancy and emotional intensity, endearing characters and a charming plot are the ingredients in Hawkins' utterly delightful tale.
Even though her father has gambled away their home to Lord Dougal MacLean, Sophia MacFarlane is determined to keep the house she loves. She'll resort to any kind of underhanded chicanery to drive MacLean out.
But the clever lord is out to beat her
at her own game, and all Sophia has
left to risk is her virtue. She plans to share a kiss or two with Dougal, but it becomes obvious they've bitten off more then they can chew and that a house is not as strong as the love and family they discover. (Pocket, Feb., 316 pp., $7.50)
