The Laird of Loch Fyne
'I'm sorry for what has to be done, lass,' the old man whispered. 'It is the only way they can be saved.' Maggie shook her head in confusion as the voices and laughter of fairgoers around her became inaudible. 'The only way who can be saved? I'm afraid I don't understand what you're talking about.' A loud, thunderous sound burst through the atmosphere, followed by the glow...more
This Outlander-esque tale is a fluffier less involved version than Diana Gabaldon's epic series. Historic detail is almost nonexistent, the characters are narrowly defined, the plot is all about the romance. But as a sweet-tart romance, it works just fine.
Author Brandy Grandberg does an excellent job of letting us get to know the central characters, flaws and all. I also loved the bits of humor sprinkled throughout the book. Don't miss out on this one! ...more

I look forward to receiving and reading your book.
Review: 2.5 Stars.
If you like easy, breezy, light reads, then you will enjoy 'the Laird of Loch Fyne.' I enjoyed it. I didn't love it.
It begins with a hint of Galbadon's 'Outlander' and ends with a touch of the 1942 movie, 'Tarzan's New York Adventure.'
I felt the protagonist, Maggie Harris to be a modern yet very submissive woman and that had me craving ...more
