Guest Post with Marie Laval
This week, I'm delighted to welcome Choc Lit author, Marie Laval, back to the blog to talk about her latest novel.
Welcome, Marie! I can't wait to hear more about your novel so it's over to you.
Thank you so much for welcoming me on your blog today to talk about CAPTURED BY A SCOTTISH LORD which was released by Choc Lit UK on 24th January.This novel is a historical romance and the third book featuring a member of the Saintclair family. I loved every minute of researching and writing the love story between my fun and intrepid heroine Rose Saintclair and my wonderfully stern, dutiful and brooding hero Bruce McGunn, and I hope that readers will enjoy it too.
the heroine of CAPTURED BY A SCOTTISH LORD, learnt the art of dancing like a
Ouled Nail from her childhood friend Malika. However, now she is married
to wealthy landowner Scottish Cameron McRae and sailing to be with him in the
far North of Scotland, she has to forget about her most unbefitting and
unladylike skills...Or does she?
wild Scottish landscape is a far cry from Rose Saintclair’s Saharan oasis,
although she’ll endure it for Lord Cameron McRae, the man she married after a
whirlwind romance in Algiers. But when stormy weather leads to Rose’s
Scotland-bound ship docking on Cape Wrath – the land of Cameron’s enemy, Bruce
McGunn – could her new life already be in jeopardy?
Lord McGunn was a fearless soldier, but his experiences have made him as unforgiving as the land he presides over. He knows McRae won’t rest until he owns Wrath, and the man is willing to use brutal tactics. Bruce decides that he’ll play McRae at his own game, take the ship and its precious occupant, and hold them hostage.
Rose is determined to escape, but whilst captured she learns that there’s another side to her new husband – and could her supposedly cold and ruthless kidnapper also be concealing hidden depths?

Thank you, Marie. What a fascinating background to your novel. I'm sure the readers will want to know if Rose does forget her 'unbefitting and unladylike skills'.
