"Fun - Sensual - Fabulous Book"
Newer author Deborah MacGillivray doesn't let the grass
grow under feet as she comes out swinging with what is
to be another surefire hit since her overwhelmingly
successful debut of A RESTLESS KNIGHT. Switching genres
proves herself by donning a new hat and writes a
contemporary gem that is sure to gain a whole new set of
fans for this budding master wordsmith.
B.A. Montgomerie is the Lady of the tiny Isle of
a title passed to her at seventeen upon the death of her
grandmother Maeve. With that title also came
responsibilities and The Curse. In essence, that should
Lady not marry an outlander with black hair, green eyes,
and be of Irish descent, the males on the isle would never
find marital bliss, nor would there be any females born on
the isle always leaving a shortage of marriageable women.
Not one to allow The Curse to dictate her life, B.A. had
come up with a scheme to advertise, via the internet
Falgannon as the 'Isle of Love' and posting pictures of
braw (not mentioning quirky) laddies available.
The laddies on the isle had different ideas and knew the
key to finding a wife was to get B.A. married off to a
proper man before they'd find their happiness.
Unexpectedly, Desmond Mershan came to invade her island,
conquer her and destroy her world. The laddies knew Des
perfect for their Lady and would, in their own
idiosyncratic ways, set out to make it happen!
*** Once again MacGillivray has come up with a perfect
recipe in this engaging tale blending in a terrific
quirky characters, humor, and sizzling sensuality into
very entertaining read. Her lead players are perfectly
matched and their witty repartee foreplay was totally
enhanced by the comments and actions of her lads and one
very endearing poker playing fat cat. Skillfully using a
plethora of enormously funny secondary characters
MacGillivray keeps the tone light while keeping the dark
secrets that haunt Desmond from completely surrendering to
his love for B.A. All will delight in this well-written
keeper and be holding their breath waiting for sequels to
feature the rest of the Montgomerie sisters as they find
the men of their dreams.
