THE HIGHLANDER’S DESIRE BY MARGO MAGUIRE
When in love do we always think with our heart first?
For Anna MacIver wishing was all she could do to get through the day. She wished her mother had not perished and left her with this awful step-family making her wish for a way off the island. When Lachann MacMIllan comes to take over the kingdom as its new Laird Anna has mixed feelings as this arrangement involves him marrying her awful stepsister. However, if Catriona was under another’s control she might give Anna the freedom she longs for.
Anna is Catriona equal in all ways but having a mother to defend her rights and a father that can contain a clear thought. With no boundaries, her stepsister spent every moment of the day treating her like a servant and creating a hostile existence between them. With Lachann in the picture, what becomes clear is the need for his leadership and in doing so he makes it clear he is not a man to be trifled. Lachlann needs a wife that cares for his people and notices that Anna is the one who answers the call to all who are in need and will not back off from any fight. Why he is drawn to a woman he cannot have is making life for him more than difficult. Lacklann knows that he may lose the piece of land he must have if he should choose Anna to be his wife but every day that passes he sees she is the perfect fit for him.
With Lachlann’s nemesis dogging his heels, the present Laird incapacitated to help fix the mess his domain is in Lachlann steps up and starts making decisions, barking out orders, and trying to control his raging desire for Anna. Lachlann succeeds at the business but with Anna is what he longs for and will have regardless of the cost.
Margo Maguire has written a story that touches you romantically and fires you up with a right will win passion.
