The Scandalous Secret of Abigail MacGregor by Paula Quinn

The Scandalous Secret of Abigail MacGregor by Paula Quinn

This is book 3 in The MacGregors: Highland Heirs series.

When Abigail MacGregor's mother is called to England by the Queen, she knows she will stand in her place. Her mother has just gotten over a prolonged illness and if someone doesn't go, it could mean war for Scotland. She didn't count on being attracted to her English escort.

General Daniel Marlow, can't believe that the Queen has sent him to Scotland to get one of her handmaidens. He would much rather be on the battlefield defending England. When he starts to have feelings for Abigail, he feels as if he is betraying his Queen.

Can these two enemies find an everlasting love without betraying their countries?

I fell in love with the male MacGregors cousins when I read The Seduction of Miss Amelia Bell (the first book of Quinn's that I had read). When she started telling the stories of the females I didn't know what to anticipate. After reading The Wicked Ways of Alexander Kidd, I fell in love with them too. The love affair continues with Abigail! We see a lot more of the older generation in this book. I've not read any of those, but after hearing bits and pieces of Abigail's parent's story, I'm going to have to read those pretty soon!!

I loved the enemy turned lovers theme that this story follows. It takes place in a time where the English and the Scots hate each other. With stories like this, you have the characters fighting their attraction for each other because they feel like it is wrong. That adds all kinds of drama. Add to that the life of a want-to-be lover, an assassin and the Queen of England and the drama never stops!

Next up is Malcolm's story (I can't wait!!!!). It will be interesting to see how Quinn brings him up to scratch!! September seems so far away...

You can get this book at the following retailers:
