THE LAIRD’S CHOICE by Amanda Scott
Is the unexpected always a surprise?
Andrena MacFarlan likes the independent life of a lass, roaming about as she so desires. Her obligation to marry and save her father’s properties falls on her shoulders and the man her father chooses for her is Magnus Galbraith. Who would think an escaped prisoner would be her father's first choice.
Magnus agrees to the arrangement, which offers him the chance to establish a name and life now that his father has disowned him. He suffered as a prisoner of his father’s enemy knowing that he was completely alone and accepting that he had to fend for himself. Marrying Andrena provides a warmth to his heart and releases emotions long held in check that he could not have imagined still existed. Magnus has a new mission to keep her safe and be a good Laird to his newly acquired kingdom.
What Magnus did not expect was a lady wife with the ability to sense danger and not follow his orders, he could not decide which vexed him more. Magnus does have a mission though and it involves something greater than any other obligation he has at the moment. Taking Andrena with him is dangerous but being apart from her is torture and he could not survive that again.
