English Tudor Saga book 2
By Mary Wine

Jemma Ramsden is a wild thing in a noblewoman’s body-so thinks Gordon Dwyre, Laird Barras, watching her galloping on horseback through her brother’s lands. Bold, headstrong, beautiful: the perfect bride for a lusty Scots warrior. He might be able to convince her, too, if she would hear his suit. But Barras doesn’t wait to be handed what he wants. When he’s forced to rescue her from English ruffians, he makes sure she stays safe-by locking her in his castle.
Jemma is hardly an eager captive. She has no horse and no freedom, and she is an Englishwoman in a hostile Scots keep: a stranger without work or friend. Barras seems determined to charm her-even tempt forbidden desires, a daring game that leaves Jemma desperate for more. But with passion, love, and a new life within her grasp, Jemma is in more danger than even she knows…
I once again am reading a new-to-me author and once again am really enjoying it. I had to read Mary’s book after I met her an RomCon; she was so much fun to hang out with. So as soon as I was able to get my hands on My Fair Highlander I pushed everything else aside.
This is the second book in the series, yes you read the name of it correctly up top, it is an English Tudor Saga. The first book is about Jemma’s brother who is English, you don’t need to have read it to know what is going on in this book but I am going to make sure I get a copy, as I liked this one so much.
Jemma has spent the last few years taking care of her dying father, there is nothing else she wished to be doing during that time, but now her grief has overwhelmed her and made her careless. Her brother does not know what to do with her; in fact she does not know what to do with her. When she finally starts realizing that something has got to give, she finds herself in a very bad situation and then she is rescued by none other than Laird Barras, their Scottish neighbor (can you say HOT Scottish Laird)!
Gordon knows that Jemma is the one for him; he now needs to convince her that she should trust him, he has been burned before due to lack of trust and will not let that happen again. He finds one hot-tempered, passionate woman in Jemma which is a prize he is not willing to give up, even if that means not allowing her to return home, he just needs a little time.
You can’t put an English lady in a Scottish world without some drama, and there is a lot of it, along with intrigue and power struggles. All wrapped together to make an enjoyable and steamy story. Makes me want to find my own Highlander.
