Historical novelMacGregor's Bargain by Rowena Williamson For half a
century, the Jacobites have rebelled against Britain in an attempt
to reclaim Scotland's throne for the exiled House of Stuart. Now,
tensions are building and the Battle of Culloden looms in the
future, with the fate of Great Britain at stake. It is the summer
of 1744 and Scotland is about to change forever. Set amidst the
mysterious, sweeping mountainsides of the Scottish Highlands and in
the seductive city of Paris, MacGregor's Bargain is a gripping
story of love, loyalty and betrayal, hope and devastation, and
accounts of human strength and vulnerability buried between the
pages of history. In light of the ongoing Jacobite rebellion, Niall
MacGregor, a wealthy soldier of fortune, member of an outlawed
clan, sees hope for a free Scotland, and a chance, by marrying Anne
Drummond, disgraced heiress to a castle on Loch Laggan, to own land
and start a dynasty. Anne, whose behavior has made her an
unsuitable bride for any man in her own class, accepts the marriage
as a way to protect her people. But she sees horrifying visions of
bloodshed and destruction. Niall is determined to fight for
Scottish independence, and Anne is cursed with the power to know
the outcome. Torn between her loyalty to her husband and her
loyalty to the clan she is destined to protect, Anne must make a
choice, harder after the birth of a daughter. A close friend is
thought to be an English spy, causing a rift between Anne and
Niall. Anne grows to know her husband, and develop love for him. He
still seems to see their marriage as a mere bargain, making their
destinies unclear as ominous signs of Scotland's fate develop.
Written by Rowena Williamson, an exciting new award winning author,
MacGregor's Bargain is based on years of extensive research. The
story is one steeped in romance and rebellion, and the characters
of Niall and Anne will not be soon forgotten. But what does destiny
have in store for them? Can the Jacobites disprove Anne's visions
and finally defeat the British? And can Anne and Niall find love
before it's too late? "Well plotted, richly imagined, and
evocative. I am a champion of Rowena's writing." Bharti Kirchner,
whose soon-to-released fifth novel is Tulip Season: A Mitra Basu
