REVIEW

"Another addition to my `keeper' shelf"

When the mailman delivered IN HER BED, I eagerly opened the package, and started reading this 2nd in the Dragons of Challon series immediately. As much as I loved the main characters in A RESTLESS KNIGHT, I was even more taken in by Damian St. Giles and Aithinne Ogilvie. So drawn by their story, I almost turned my back on my family, wishing they'd go away and not interrupt my reading. Each time I had to put the book down to handle daily chores, my mind stayed with Damian and Aithinne.

The book opens with Damian trying to drown his sorrow of losing Tamlyn to marriage with his cousin. When identical triplets supply him with a strange drink, promising to take away his pain, his wild ride begins.

Aithinne, with the help of her healer and friend, Oona, and her bumblesome brothers (the triplets), have set in motion a plan to bring a brawny man to her tower bedroom--hoping to get Aithinne with child. She plans to fight off the neighboring lords trying to take her land by lying about marriage to her guardian, Lord Lyonglen, and producing an `heir' to the title. She didn't count on the kidnapped man chained to her bed merely for `stud' service stealing her heart and soul.

IN HER BED is first and foremost a love story--two people finding each other in the midst of war, and slaughterhouse encounters dealing with the English and the Scots, but the antics of the triplets, Damian's teasing of Aithinne and her freckles, and her insults to him to hide her love kept this reader wreathed in smiles.

Ms. MacGillivray skillfully spins yet another sensual tale of a yummy English Knight and his mystical, pagan Ladylove, and their road to finding each other. The author is an expert on medieval Scotland, and it shows in her witty dialogue, interwoven with just the right amount of history. This author impressed me with her fan-yourself-hot love scenes that remained tasteful--unusual in this day of so many erotica books with sex for sex sake. Another addition to my `keeper' shelf (in fact, I enjoyed it so much, I didn't want to it to end). I highly recommend this book to everyone, and I anxiously await the next in the series.

SUMMARY

DREAM LOVER

Damian St. Giles has woken up before with a sore head from imbibing too much mead, but finding himself naked and shackled to a bed is an entirely new experience. As if in a dream, a flame-haired enchantress appears and offers him a brew to ease his pain & and enflame his desire. He soon realizes this Highland beauty has given him a potent aphrodisiac and she is fully prepared to take all his body has to offer...

TRUE DESIRE

Lady Aithinne Ogilvie knows she must treat this man as nothing more than a stud, for that is what he is to her & a means to get her with child and thus produce an heir who will save her inheritance from ruthless Scottish warriors and greedy King Edward. Yet she cannot deny the instant bond she feels for this handsome stranger - and the feeling that it will be the prisoner in her bed who will end up laying claim to her heart.
