RORY: A Scottish Outlaw by Lily Baldwin

A Reader's Opinion

A fantastic read!

RORY: A SCOTTISH OUTLAW, is the first book I've read by Lily Baldwin. When I first started the story, I thought I might have missed something coming in at book three. However, the author ended chapter one on a great note and I easily kept going. Lady Alexandria "Alex" is a wonderful and strong heroine who loves Scotland above all else. Rory MacVie is a charming and loyal hero who also loves Scotland and would do anything for her.

They are both honorable, spirited, and their passions and pursuits make them perfect for each other. Their romance is almost legendary!

I feel like if I say much more it will give away too much of the story. Because I hadn't read the first books in the series, I didn't know what to expect but I was surprised a few times. The author did a good job holding my interest, and she has a nice and easy writing style.

RORY: A SCOTTISH OUTLAW is sure to please anyone who enjoys a sensual medieval adventure.


Rory: A Scottish Outlaw

A passionate story of honor, rebellion, and forbidden love.

Lady Alexandria MacKenzie is one of Abbot Matthew's network of rebels, fighting for Scottish independence. When her father dies, leaving their clan without a laird, she asks the abbot for aid in finding a husband. He sends her a selection of three noblemen from which to choose. Accompanying them is secret agent and reputed rake, Rory MacVie, who must assist Alexandria with a perilous mission for Scotland. But the abbot makes one point very clear--Rory is not a potential suitor.
