MEDIEVAL:  This original, brilliant collection of Scottish Highland novellas written by eight talented historical romance authors offers the reader tales of  Celtic lore featuring forbidden love, persecution, adventure and passion, set in eighteenth-century Scotland. The authors have each contributed stories featuring characters that will transport readers to the Highlands. The first is about a knight who comes home to find the young girl he left demanding that he keep a promise made when he was a small boy. The second, about a man who has come to fulfill a prophecy regarding Lady Lila's future. Another  of fighting clans and forbidden love, highland duty and honor — all with beautifully captured scenes — these are just a few of the characters readers will meet.

The stories are all well-written, with wonderful characters and plenty of twists and turns to keep a reader intrigued. The plots are all well-paced and each story is steeped in intrigue with a creative storyline that readers won't be able to put down. One of the drawbacks of the Highland hero archetype is that they seem too good to be true. No problems are insurmountable, whatever occurs they are always true gentleman without fault. There are no flawed heroes here! For readers looking for value, for  good-looking heroes and heroines to set their hearts aflutter with their adventures, this book is just the thing!
