"Master storyteller Claire Delacroix has done it again with this marvelous medieval romance. The Countess is a keeper!" -Old Book Barn Gazette
From the Inside Flap
Be Mine for a year and a day and I will possess your heart forevermore!
Driven from her late husband's estate, Countess Eglantine de Crevy fled to wildest Scotland to claim a castle, only to find a ruin--and a clan chieftain standing guard. Kinbeath was hers, she declared, vowing to rebuild the manor and launch a bride quest so her daughters could marry for love. But Duncan MacLaren had devised a bride quest of his own, swearing to win the land--and the fiery countess--in a war of sweet seduction....
Eglantine declared she would never be captured by this barbarian. Yet Duncan awakened passions she had never known before. She promised to fight him with every weapon at her command even as he vowed to woo her for a year and a day--and make her his pagan bride. Each thought Kinbeath the prize they most desired, a prize to be won at any price. Until passion turned to love, and the chieftain found himself fighting for the heart and hand of the woman he was born to possess.

This is not the usual fare as it is set in a rugged country with strong, determined men fighting for their rights and holding on to them for dear life. Then Lady Eglantine comes along and meets her match! It is romantic, sexy, amusing and a great story. Read the snatch inside the book to get you going and enjoy the trip.
The next book in the series is excellent and involves the daughter of Eglantine.
I think I will re-read them again as I have just wetted my appetite.
Duncan MacLaren has no intention of giving up his claim to land that has belonged to his clan for generations just because this woman has an obviously forged deed. He can't however do as some suggest and fight them. They are only women and their servants, not warriors.
This is a great battle of wills between two very stubborn people. Both are used to putting others needs before their own. Our heroine has her daughters to protect. Our hero has to prove himself as the new clan chieftain.
A book that will keep you entertained all the way through. Dealing with so many personalities is a nightmare for our poor protagonists. I loved it.
