At last!! Part three of The Lochmore Legacy has arrived and it’s a brilliant addition to the series! I flew through this one in an afternoon and loved every single minute spent within its pages. Elisabeth Hobbs is the writer who brought me to historical Mills and Boon and she’s still my favourite writer in this genre. You always find yourself deeply involved in her atmospheric settings and I look forward to every book she writes as she’s not written a hero I haven’t fallen in love with yet! And ...more

A Runaway Bride For The Highlander is book three of The Lochmore Legacy historical romances.

A set of four books, each steps back into history as clues to a mystery are revealed. Book one began in the Victorian era, book two is set during the Regency years, book three in Tudor times, and the final book is set in the medieval period.

So far we have been introduced to a mystical brooch, an empty crypt and a long standing family feud between two clans.

Book three is set in 1513. Scotland has just been

My, oh, my!! This book is why I read historical romance!!

Just when I thought that this series couldn’t possibly get any better, then boom! The incredible Elisabeth Hobbes comes along with her Tudor romance and just blows me away. There is a real dangerous and dark undertone to this, it has that Gothic edge to it that the previous books in the series have which I do love, I am a fan of the darker romances, the stories that have a bit of edge to them. As well as that it has the unmistakable Hobbes
Easy quick read! Especially since the first couple chapters was skimming it as my interest was not captured as much as expected from the awesome synopsis I read on the back cover! Way too slow paced at times with too much unnecessary detail/drama the characters were not as fleshed out as they could be I thought! Glad it picked up a bit in the middle felt more actual chemistry between our protagonist!!! The thing that bothered me most was why steal a tomb of all things! Will have to research more ...more

A Runaway Bride for the Highlander by Elisabeth Hobbes is an absolute dream of a book to read. The characters are beautifully crafted and stand strong as individuals, however, the chemistry between those characters takes the story from interesting to absolutely captivating.

Ewan Lochmore has recently become the Earl of Glenarris and carries the title with a heavy heart since it represents what he’s lost. He now wants to get to his lands and prove to his clan that he is worthy of the title and re

“I do not care about hardship. I will sleep under the sky and walk the whole way across your mountains if necessary.”

The third instalment of the Lochmore Legacy mini-series takes the reader back to the immediate aftermath of the battle of Flodden when clan leaders gathered at Stirling Castle to discuss the future of Scotland, and it is here that Ewan Lochmore, newly titled Lord Glenarris, first encounters Marguerite Vallon; a meeting which will ultimately change both their lives.

This is the next book in the reverse chronology of the Lochmore Legacy. Some questions from the previous books are answered while new ones make their appearance. Ewan and Marguerite are mentioned several times in the earlier books, so I was happy to get their story.

The story begins immediately after Scotland's defeat at Flodden, as the clans gather at Stirling to plan Scotland's future. Ewan, who had been studying law in Glasgow, is on the way to Stirling to claim the title of Earl of Glenarris

"Come incoraggiato da quel muto segnale, lui l’afferrò per la nuca, la attirò a sé e, quando le loro bocche si incontrarono, Marguerite era pronta. Fu però un bacio urgente, impetuoso. Non ci fu l’esitazione o la tenerezza della prima volta. Fu l’incontro di due bocche fameliche, avide, smaniose di soddisfare la brama di lui e la curiosità di lei."

In "A Runaway Bride for the Highlander" we follow Marguerite and Ewan love story and what a wonderful one it was.

I should just accept that I will forever be surprise by the amazing authors in the Historical Romance genre, and thank you Elisabeth Hobbes for really slapping the shock out of me. Why am I say this? Because it was once I learned that this happened in the Tudor era that I just felt all does surprised, excited and "kid on Christmas eve" rollercoaster of emotions. I love when I'm surpri
A Runaway Bride for the Highlander by author Elisabeth Hobbes is the third book in The Lochmore Legacy. In the previous stories in this series, we did hear of Ewan and Marguerite so I was excited to learn more about them as a couple and the part they played in the mystery. After reading this story, I must congratulate Ms. Hobbes as she has given us another masterpiece to add to this series and brought us one step closer to unraveling the mystery! Another book of perfection!

We return to the rugged and wild landscape of Scotland to Book 3 in The Lochmore Legacy series. To 1513 were the men were wilder than the land that they were borne from.

From the very first paragraph author Elisabeth Hobbes was setting a scene of a land that bore many battles and although Ewan Lochmore didn't wear any physical scars from the recent battle at Flodden his heart had been shattered with the deaths of his father and brother. With a heart so leaden and full of grief he's now on his way

I can’t believe that this is book three in The Lochmore Legacy series and what a series it’s been so far. Even though there is a mystery connecting each book they do work really well as standalone stories. However I have to highly recommend that you read each one because if not you really will be missing out on something very special!

In A Runaway Bride for the Highlander we meet Marguerite who decides to take drastic action to avoid her impending marriage which in turn throws her into the path o

The Lochmore Legacy is a mini series of four books by four different authors about a Scottish clan, well, two really, and a castle. There is also a mystery that runs through the books. Unusually for a series like this the stories run backwards through time. The first was set in the Victorian era, the second in the Regency and this, the third in the time of the Tudors.

For me the hero of A Runaway Bride for the Highlander is actually the heroine. Marguerite is such a strong character, far stronger

It’s always a treat to read a brand new historical romance by Elisabeth Hobbes. But what’s even more special is that her story is a part of a miniseries, The Lochmore Legacy, that I’ve been reading and enjoying. A Runaway Bride for the Highlander is daring and vibrant with a dramatic flair that hooks you in. Marguerite is bold and fierce. She is defying and resilient and I rooted for her from the onset. Ewan, our hero is a strong warrior but beneath his tough outward masculinity is a man whose h ...more

Well-written. However, it's another one of those close-proximity, Medieval period, travelogue stories, so it was rather predictable. Once you've read one of these types of story lines, they all start to sound the same. The epilogue was a bit different than most I've read, though. Most epilogues don't go that far into the future.

I adore this book very much, got to love sneaky heroines and heroes, especially feisty ones, we definitely go on an emotional rollercoaster and it's most definitely more than worth it. Highly recommend

As usual, Elisabeth writes a fine tale with frustration and eventually love as the backbone of a captivating tale of Scottish clans, jealousies and intrigues. Reading her books, you always feel that you are in the room with them, watching and listening unobserved.
On the one hand, you can tell that Hobbes (unlike the authors of the first two books in this series) tries to give a more authentic, rich historical experience for readers. On the other hand? Boring.

The characters were thinly drawn, the story seemed out-of-sync with it's historical setting, and the plot was rather predictable. The internal conflict felt random and the external conflict was resolved too neatly. The hero would often kind of "turn on" the heroine in anger or stress which I found to be highly unattractive and immature. A Runaway Bride for the Highlander wasn't terrible, but by the time I reached the last page, the whole experience was rather "meh".
