Lord Keeper by Tarah Scott
No man bargains for war when he chooses a bride, but when he steals her from holy ground, he can expect nothing less.
A midnight race for freedom leads Victoria Hockley, the Countess of Lansbury, to a churchyard deep in the Scottish Highlands. But not even hallowed ground can save her from the devil who’s pursued her from England, or from the furious Scot who swears to protect her.
Iain MacPherson swore he was nothing like his father, but his kidnapping of Victoria Hockley shows the same kind of obsessive jealousy that sent his mother to an early grave. Now Iain has hell to pay, and the devil may very well be the noble English lass who has bewitched his very soul…
“Lass,” he called
She Halted, her back to him
“What is your name?”
An instant of silence passed, then she turned.
“You should have asked Father Brennan before you stole me.” ~Page 18
This is defiantly one of my favorite Highlander books! At times it had me laughing so hard I cried, I love Victoria’s sprit she is smart, strong and takes no crap from this big sexy Highland warrior. The things she does to that poor man will have you laughing.
The Lord Keeper is a sexy, funny, action packed book that will have you laughing, crying and sometimes wanting to yell at the book, you won’t be bored reading this.
Iain MacPherson ends up at an Abby due to reports of another clan being on his land. While he is there he sees Victoria Hockley and kidnaps her as soon as she steps off holy ground.
No one told Victoria that she must stay on holy ground when visitors are around otherwise she is fair game to take home. But she put up one hell of a fight and is determined to get away and go back to the abby.
Iain wants to make her his wife and Victoria wants nothing to do with being married again. See the 1st time did not work out so great. After her husband dies she runs to the Scottish highlands to escape from the devil that’s pursued her from England. Will Iain finally win over the lass who has bewitched his very soul? Or will she be taken from him forever?
