Description

The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family's bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when powerful enemies threaten, each Douglas lass will find she must face them alone. Captured by a Laird Haunted by his father's violent death, David Hume, the new laird of Wedderburn, sets out to make his name so feared that no one will dare harm his family again. The treacherous ally who played on his father's weakness is dead and beyond David's vengeance, but his castle and young widow are ripe for the taking. The moment David lays eyes on the dark-haired beauty defending her wee daughters, however, he knows this frail-looking lass is the one person who could bring him to his knees. Wed at thirteen to a man who tried daily to break her spirit, Lady Alison Douglas is looking forward to a long widowhood. But when the fearsome warrior known as the Beast of Wedderburn storms her gates, she finds herself, once again, forced to wed a stranger. Alison is only a pawn to serve his vengeance, so why does this dark warrior arouse such fiery passion and an unwelcome longing in her heart? With death and danger looming, these two wounded souls must learn to trust each other; for only love can save them.

Fantastic!

I'm a big Margaret Mallory fan but I have to say Captured by a Laird is one of her very best. I was hooked from the very first chapter and could not put it down. Derek Perkins did a very good performance of this book and made it truly enjoyable.

Great Entertainment, Exciting!

What made the experience of listening to Captured by a Laird the most enjoyable?

It had everything that makes a good book; a revenge tragedy (a drama popular in the 16th - 17th centuries), romance, intrigue, a handsome, fierce Highlander who storms a lovely widow's gates to exact punishment on her clan and force her to marry him. The new Laird has trouble inside and outside the Castle/Keep he's conquered. It was concise and flowed right along; no boring interludes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Captured by a Laird?

There were many but when the Laird's youngest brother (a lovable, meek nature young man with little training with the sword) rides into the path of a renown French swordsman was certainly memorable. The young Hume brother was leaving the Keep (unaware his two older brothers had been in a skirmish with the Frenchman and his men) when he saw his Laird brother and his next oldest brother in hot pursuit of the Frenchman he rode to intersect him. Would his brothers reach the Frenchman in time (one brother riding in from the side where he had been stationed as a look-out and Laird Hume a distance behind the Frenchman); will they get to him before he severs the young man's head?

What does Derek Perkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has the ability to relate to each character and create different character's voices! So much better than reading it myself.

If you could rename Captured by a Laird, what would you call it?

A Laird's Revenge!

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend "Captured by a Laird".

Captured My Heart

This first book in the Douglas Legacy series is a dramatic, well paced Scottish historical romance. It delivers a true "Scottish era" tale of Alison and David. Alison is a gutsy young woman who was married at 13 to a dishonorable man. Enter David, a determined Laird, who captures her castle, lands, and her heart. This story has just enough passion, danger, courage, and vengeance to keep any historical romance enthusiast entertained.

I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. ;-)

Great story

I loved the story and all the twists. I will listen to more of these books. Had a bit of trouble with narrator at first but the more the story evolved the less it was.

It was a very nice book

I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was well performed though I would not have chosen a man to narrate this story. His female voices came across as whiny in places, but not so bad as to make me stop listening. The note from the author explaining how she writes fiction but drew greatly upon historical information was a nice bonus at the end that often does not make it into audio editions. Overall I am well pleased.

Nicht nur Liebe

Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von Captured by a Laird besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

In dem Buch wird nicht nur die Liebesgeschichte zweier Personen in den Vordergrund geschoben. Ich habe mitgefühlt, als die Burg angegriffen wurde und Lady Alison Angst um ihr Leben und das Leben ihrer zwei Töchter hatte. Sehr schön geschrieben. Den Sprecher fand ich dabei auch sehr angenehm. Er hat jedem Charakter eine andere Stimme verliehen.

Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?

Besonders berührt hat mich, als sie ihm ihre Liebe gestanden hat. Sehr mutig. In vielen anderen Liebesromanen ist das ja immer ein "Gezedere" weil es keiner wirklich zugeben möchte.
