Publisher's Summary

The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family's bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when powerful enemies threaten, each Douglas lass will find she must face them alone. Captured by a Laird Haunted by his father's violent death, David Hume, the new laird of Wedderburn, sets out to make his name so feared that no one will dare harm his family again. The treacherous ally who played on his father's weakness is dead and beyond David's vengeance, but his castle and young widow are ripe for the taking. The moment David lays eyes on the dark-haired beauty defending her wee daughters, however, he knows this frail-looking lass is the one person who could bring him to his knees. Wed at thirteen to a man who tried daily to break her spirit, Lady Alison Douglas is looking forward to a long widowhood. But when the fearsome warrior known as the Beast of Wedderburn storms her gates, she finds herself, once again, forced to wed a stranger. Alison is only a pawn to serve his vengeance, so why does this dark warrior arouse such fiery passion and an unwelcome longing in her heart? With death and danger looming, these two wounded souls must learn to trust each other; for only love can save them.

    "Captured My Heart"

    This first book in the Douglas Legacy series is a dramatic, well paced Scottish historical romance. It delivers a true "Scottish era" tale of Alison and David. Alison is a gutsy young woman who was married at 13 to a dishonorable man. Enter David, a determined Laird, who captures her castle, lands, and her heart. This story has just enough passion, danger, courage, and vengeance to keep any historical romance enthusiast entertained.

    I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. ;-)

    "Loved it."

    Margaret and the narrator brought the Highlands to life.....the passion, violence, pride of country and honor of an honorable Laird. She created a wonderful ardent love story in the rugged country of the Scottish Highlands. It brought out every emotion with this great story.

    "Fantastic!"

    I'm a big Margaret Mallory fan but I have to say Captured by a Laird is one of her very best. I was hooked from the very first chapter and could not put it down. Derek Perkins did a very good performance of this book and made it truly enjoyable.

    I believe in true love, happily ever after, magic, and laughter. But mostly I believe in coffee.

    "It was a very nice book"

    I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was well performed though I would not have chosen a man to narrate this story. His female voices came across as whiny in places, but not so bad as to make me stop listening. The note from the author explaining how she writes fiction but drew greatly upon historical information was a nice bonus at the end that often does not make it into audio editions. Overall I am well pleased.

    "Great story"

    I loved the story and all the twists. I will listen to more of these books. Had a bit of trouble with narrator at first but the more the story evolved the less it was.

    I'm a listener-holic. I love to listen while making greeting cards, cooking, gardening, and while doing absolutely nothing else.
