"Ghosts, a curse, secrets--a perfect mix." --Hannah Howell

Christmas in the Highlands. . .

Not any dashing English lord's idea of a good time. But now that Lord Alexander Mallory has won a Scottish estate in a hand of cards, he is the unlikely laird of the wild, snowy Bonniebroch. Worse yet, the ancient pile of stones comes with a betrothal. To a fiery red-headed virgin. And a curse.

Alex will have his hands full honoring the first, seducing the second and breaking the third. . .all by Twelfth Night.

Praise for Mia Marlowe and her novels

"Marlowe proves she has the ‘touch' for strong heroines, wickedly sexy heroes, and love scenes so hot they singe the pages." --USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Ashley

"Sensuality, sexuality, passion and mystery blend into a wonderfully entertaining tale." --RT Book Reviews

About Mia Marlowe:

Mia Marlowe learned much of what she knows about storytelling from singing. A classically trained soprano, she devised back stories to prepare for operatic roles. Since she’s worn a real corset, and had to sing high C’s in one, she empathizes with the trials of her fictional heroines. But in Mia’s stories, they don’t die in a Parisian garret. They get to live and keep the hero! Mia loves history, art, music and travel. Especially travel. Good thing, since she’s lived in 9 different states and is embarrassed to admit she’s lost track of how many times she’s been to Europe. She regards her frequent moves as vacations on which she drags along all her stuff. Currently, she and her DH make their home in New England.

Reviewer: AprilR, My Book Addiction and More

PLAID TIDINGS by Mia Marlowe is a fantastic Scottish Historical Romance set in 1821 Scotland. #1 in "The Spirit of the Highlands" and what a beginning! I absolutely loved this story! The chemistry between Lord Alexander Mallory and Lucinda MacOwen jumps off the page. Lord Mallory won Lucinda's beloved Scottish estate, Bonniebroch, in a card game and of course he is the most unlikely laird. The estate comes with what else... a curse, a betrothal, and of course a most unlikely fiery red-headed virgin. Let the games begin.....

By Twelfth Night, he must break the Scottish curse that comes with the estate, of course he is attracted to Lucinda, and most seduce her oh yes, she must fall in love with him to break the curse of her own free will. Which she is deeply attracted to Mallory also. Filled with passion, a bit of danger, lots of laughter, a ghost,a curse and what else but in true Marlowe fashion a hero who is strong, determined, sexy and a Highlander in every sense of the word. Of course, her heroine, Lucinda, is fiery, feisty, a virgin, and strong-willed herself. Christmas in the Highlands is always festive, mystic, and passion filled! Fast paced and full of adventures. I love Ms. Marlowe's stories, she knows how to draw her readers into the story and hold them there. I can't wait for the next installment. Another must read! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
