What if the steps they take to avoid marriage…
The last thing Asher MacGregor, newly titled Earl of Balfour, wants is a society wife, though he has agreed to squire Boston heiress Hannah Cooper about the London ballrooms. When he’s met that obligation, he’ll return to the Highlands, and resume the myriad responsibilities awaiting him there.
…Lead instead to impossible love?
At her step-father’s insistence, Hannah Cooper must endure a London season, though she has no intention of surrendering her inheritance to a fortune hunter. When she’s done her duty, she’ll return to Boston and the siblings who depend upon her for their safety… or will she? The taciturn Scottish earl suits her purposes admirably-until genuine liking and unexpected passion bring Asher and Hannah close. For if the Scottish earl and the American heiress fall in love, an ocean of differences threatens to keep them apart.
“Burrowes’ powerful and complex characters will enthrall you.” —RT Book Reviews
THE MACGREGOR’S LADY by Grace Burrowes is another delightful Victorian/Highalnder Historical Romance. #3 in the “MacGregor Trilogy”, but can be read as a stand alone. Meet, Asher MacGregor, the new Earl of Balfour, and a prodigal son returned to the fold and Hannah Cooper, a Boston heiress Hannah Cooper, who is determined to save her family from her evil, abusive step-father. So off she is sent to England to endure a London season with her Aunt, her step-father’s sister, who enjoys a bit too much Laudanum.
First Asher just wants to fulfill his commitment than go back and accept his responsibility to his Scottish title. Then comes Hannah and her secrets.
A fast paced tale of sacrifice, secrets, passion, deception, lies, misunderstandings, and love. A complex cast of characters as well as a complex, emotional story. We learn the why, what and how Aster was gone for so long and believed to be dead.
A heartfelt tale of a Scottish Earl and a Boston Heiress. The final and dramatic ending to the “MacGregor” trilogy. I can’t wait to see what grand adventure Ms. Burrowes has in store for her readers next. I enjoy this author’s stories and “The MacGregor’s Lady” was no exception. A delightful tale of love and passion. Received for an honest review from the publisher.
