Release Date: October 7, 2014
Many would count Katherine Douglas fortunate indeed. Laird William Douglas is broad-shouldered, gentle-handed, everything a lass could dream. But after four years of marriage, Katherine still knows little of what goes on in his heart. And she has yet to bear him an heir. The distance between them is too great–and so she flees over the snowy highlands to Glengarry Castle, home of her childhood, to set her husband free.
But William won’t let his wife slip away without a fight. Before long, he’s at her father’s threshold himself, witness to the rumbles of discontent in Glengarry, the bright joy of Yuletide at a family hearth, and the hidden needs of his own beloved. . .
This pick really stood out to me because it isn’t a traditional romance. The hero and heroine are already married! And yet this looks like it will be a heart-warming tale that deals with the struggle of real-life couples who are unable to conceive a child. Not everyone’s HEA is rounded out by children, no matter how desperately that couple may want them. I think it’s a healthy touch of realism and I look forward to seeing how Ms. Marlowe plays this out.
