4.0 out of 5 stars I liked For Love Or Loyalty a lot! 26 Nov 2013
By Melanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
For Love Or Loyalty was a great book. While I liked the first half, it was the last half that I found very good and thrilling! I liked how the story wasn't predictable and I was really surprised by some of the things that happened in the book.

The writing style took a little bit for me to get used to, especially the Scottish language, but that made the story feel more real. I really liked the characters, but don't think I have one favorite.

Overall, I liked For Love Or Loyalty a lot and look forward to reading the next books in this series. If you enjoy historical romance I think you'll like this book and recommend it.

To atone for her father's evil, Lauren Campbell agrees to help Malcolm MacGregor. By the time she realizes she's the bargaining price to free Malcolm's mother from indentured servitude, it's too late.

Malcolm MacGregor only wants to free his family and exact revenge against Duncan Campbell. As the pride and joy of Duncan's life, his daughter Lauren is the perfect answer, but during the voyage to America, her faith continues to witness to Malcolm. He becomes enraptured with her, and upon their arrival, discovers he's sold her into a fate worse than death. Now Malcolm has the dilemma: free his family or rescue Lauren? Time is short and with little means, he needs a miracle.

My Review:

I'm a big fan of reading about voyages to America. Maybe it's because we are all immigrants of the heart here in America's big melting pot. Or maybe it's because something about wanting a better life no matter what the cost that calls to each of us across the winds of time. This novel wasn't all about the voyage, but it was most certainly one of my favorite elements of the story. Add to it the drama of being sold off in return for personal gain, and you've got the kind of story that demands to be read.

The characters were well developed, with the hero and heroine having enough conflict between them to serve up grounds for some serious revenge. When Malcolm discovers his what he's done, it's a race against time and fate, with everything that matters on the line. How do you choose between your family and the one your heart loves? Taylor's first novel in the MacGregor Legacy series is a captivating, spell-binding and riveting journey from Scotland to South Carolina, and embodies the spirit of the times with all the elements of a perfect story. This novel is not to be missed, and I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars For Love or Loyalty 21 July 2014
By Renee Chaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
At first I'll admit I was a little reluctant when it came to reading a story where a captive falls in love with her captor, as the last story I read with a similar story line was a bit of a disappointment. Jennifer Hudson Taylor has a knack for creating a story that's adventurous as well as romantic, so I don't know what I was thinking worrying about For Love or Loyalty. It was everything that I enjoy in Christian fiction speckled with unique situations for our hero and heroine all with a little bit of danger to keep things moving along and a wee bit suspenseful. For me, Lauren Campbell was a little too easygoing for somebody who was taken from her home against her will. Even in the midst of arriving in a strange new land, she didn't seem to show a lot of emotion. I still liked where this story went, however. Malcolm was dedicated to his family, but he also took care of his "enemy" in spite of all that the Campbells had done to his clan. For Love or Loyalty is a sweet, inspirational romance for anyone who loves to read their Christian fiction in one sitting or savor slowly on a lazy summer weekend!

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll Be Swept Away...Into the Story 28 Jun 2014
By Diana Leagh Matthews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am a big fan of Scottish Historical novels and have greatly enjoyed the other Jennifer Hudson Taylor books I have read.

One again she did not disappoint.

For Love or Loyalty begins in Scotland with the feud between the MacGregor and Campbell clans. When Duncan Campbell kidnaps two of the MacGregor women, Malcom MacGregor retaliates by kidnapping Lauren Campbell.

Lauren is willing to help free her friends, but does not realize the price she will have to pay. Not until she is aboard ship on her way to America does she realize that she is leaving behind her homeland and all that requires, for a foreign land and life. She only has her faith to sustain her.

Malcom MacGregor holds onto his anger and need for revenge, but slowly Lauren’s faith begins to show him that there is a better way of life. The duo face a lot of twists and turns and each sacrifice a considerable amount in their way to a new life in America. Before it is all over and done with they will have to confront the past before they can move forward.

Once again Jennifer Hudson Taylor has written a masterful novel. There are plenty of unexpected twist and turns to keep your interest throughout the novel without growing bored. This is a great read! The characters are well fleshed out and you can feel the ebbs and flows of their emotions throughout the story.

I look forward to reading the rest of the series and following the MacGregor story through the trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational historical romance 27 Jun 2014
By bettysunflower - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a Historical Romance set in 1760. It begins in Scotland and leads us to the Carolina's. Malcolm MacGregor's family has been attacked and his mother and sister kidnapped by Duncan Campbell. Duncan and his men quickly sold them into bondage and they were headed to the Carolinas in America. When Malcolm learned of this he grabbed Duncan's daughter, booked passage and headed for the Carolinas after them.
This is basically a historical romance with an inspirational theme running through it. Duncan's daughter, Lauren is religious and looks to God for purpose and guidance. She is kidnapped, mistreated, abused, and shuffled from one 'owner' to another. There is a lot of action and some really surprising events to keep the reader interested and turning pages. All in all a very interesting read.
