Release day: The Highlander’s English Bride

30 March 2020

Today is the official release of The Highlander’s English Bride by Anna Campbell (The Lairds Most Likely, book 6) (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

An impossible pairing…

Hamish Douglas, the mercurial Laird of Glen Lyon, has never got along with independent, smart-mouthed Emily Baylor. Which wouldn’t matter if this brilliant Scottish astronomer didn’t move in the same scientific circles as Emily and if her famous father wasn’t his mentor. But when Emily looks likely to derail the event which will make Hamish’s career, he loses his temper with the pretty miss and his recklessness leaves her reputation in ruins.

A marriage made in scandal…

Emily has always thought her father’s spectacular protégé was far too arrogant for his own good. But what is she to do when the only way she can save her good name in society is to wed the unruly laird? Reluctantly she accepts Hamish’s proposal, but only on the condition that their union remains chaste. That shouldn’t be a problem; they’ve never been friends, let alone potential lovers – except that after they marry, Hamish reveals unexpected depths and a host of admirable qualities, and he’s so awfully handsome, and now the swaggering rogue admits that he desires her…

From the ballrooms of London to the grandeur of the western Highlands, a battle royal rages between these two strong-willed combatants. Neither plans to yield an inch – but are these smart people smart enough to see that sometimes the greatest victory lies in mutual surrender?

Anna dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Do you like marriage of convenience stories? I must say right from when I started reading romance knee high to a grasshopper, this was one of my favourite tropes. All that delicious sexual tension when a couple who don’t necessarily get along (in fact, they often don’t) are forced to find a way to go on together because they’re, you know, married! The MOC trope works particularly well in historical romance because back then, divorce was so difficult as to be effectively impossible for most people. So the hero and heroine really are together until death does them part. Lifts the stakes to the sky! My new story, The Highlander’s English Bride is, you guessed it, a marriage of convenience story. Hamish Douglas, Laird of Glen Lyon, and Emily Baylor, his scientific mentor’s daughter, have always had a rocky relationship, partly because they’ve both refused to acknowledge the attraction flaring between them. When Hamish’s impulsiveness lands them in a scandal, their only way forward is marriage. And then things get REALLY interesting…

You can find out more about this book at Anna’s website or buy it from Amazon.
