McCabe Trilogy Book 1
Mass Market Paperback
Rating: 5 Cups
Mairin Stuart is the illegitimate daughter of Scotland’s King Alexander. She has led a sheltered and fear-filled life in a convent. She knows she must marry a powerful and honorable warrior to protect her legacy.
Ewan McCabe is the laird of his clan. Handsome and powerful, his people have little in the way of material things, but have one of the strongest armies in Scotland. He needs a wealthy wife and a mother for his son.
Mairin has been in hiding for most of her life. Her heritage and priceless dowry make her a prize for the power-hungry. One such man has found her in hiding and is determined to marry her. Her unlikely rescuer is a small boy from the McCabe clan and the servants of her kidnapper. The boy brings her to his father who he swears will protect her. Ewan McCabe is a powerful laird who needs a wife, but Duncan Cameron is not one to give up easily.
I have always been a fan of Ms. Banks’ work, and now I am convinced she can write in any genre. Her characterizations are vivid and multidimensional, the plot is exciting and involving, and the love scenes are both tender and smoking hot. Little Crispin steals every scene he appears in and will steal your heart as well. Mairin is a likable and courageous character who tries her best to fit in. Ewan is a little dense at times, but he wants the best for his clan and Mairin, who rapidly finds her way into his heart. I am so glad there are two more brothers with stories to come.
