Margaret Mallory, a recovering lawyer, is thrilled to be writing exciting tales with sword-wielding heroes rather than briefs and memos. Since abandoning the law for romance, she's become a USA Today bestselling author, and her Scottish and medieval romances have won numerous honors, including National Readers' Choice Awards, RT Book Reviews' Best Scotland-Set Historical Romance, and a RITA© nomination.

Margaret lives with her husband in the beautiful (and rainy) Pacific Northwest. Now that her children are off on their own adventures, she spends most of her time with her handsome Highlanders, but she also likes to hike and travel. You can find information about Margaret’s books, photos of Scotland, historical tidbits, and links to Margaret

A lot of readers have asked me to write a story for Lachlan. :) He needs and deserves a Happily Ever After, and I do plan to write him a story eventually. I'm not sure when, however. I just published THE GIFT, a novella that takes place about 70 years before my THE RETURN OF THE HIGHLANDERS series & is about a couple who are related to some of the characters in that series.
My next project is CLAIMED BY A HIGHLANDER, book 2 in my new DOUGLAS LEGACY series. Another secondary character from RETURN OF THE HIGHLANDERS that readers have been asking me to write a story for is Niall, Ian's younger brother. I plan to make him the hero of book 4 in this new series. I haven't quite figured out when or how to work in a story for Lachlan, but I will! I miss him. :)
Thanks so much for asking about Lachlan.

I was intrigued by this handsome, young chieftain’s brazen power play in starting an affair with Scotland’s dowager queen, Margaret Tudor, so soon after the death of her husband, James IV. The affair led to lucrative appointments for his Douglas kin, and his eventual marriage to the queen put the Douglas chieftain in a position to vie for control of the young heir to the throne—and the country. For years, Archibald’s power rose and fell dramatically. He and his closest male relatives were forced to flee the country more than once to save their necks.

This new series, THE DOUGLAS LEGACY, was born when I began to wonder what happened to the women of the Douglas family who were left behind when the men escaped. While information on Archie’s sisters is sparse, I found enough to suggest they were in serious danger at times.
Being a romance writer, I naturally wanted to give the Douglas lasses happy endings with men who would stand by them in tough times.
CAPTURED BY A LAIRD (book 1, Sept 15 release) is a fictional story inspired by the real marriage between Archibald’s sister Alison and David Hume of Wedderburn. (less)
