The Heroes of the Scottish Highlands Collection: Ivanhoe, Waverley & Rob Roy (Illustrated): Historical Novels from the Author of The Pirate, The Heart … The Antiquary, The Bride of Lammermoor… by Walter Scott

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Heroes of the Scottish Highlands Collection: Ivanhoe, Waverley & Rob Roy (Illustrated)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Ivanhoe is the story of one of the remaining Saxon noble families at a time when the nobility in England was overwhelmingly Norman. It follows the Saxon protagonist, Wilfred of Ivanhoe, who is out of favour with his father for his allegiance to the Norman king, Richard I. The story is set in 1194, after the failure of the Third Crusade, when many of the Crusaders were still returning to their homes in Europe. Rob Roy is a historical novel narrated by Frank Osbaldistone, the son of an English merchant. He travels first to the North of England, and subsequently to the Scottish Highlands, to collect a debt stolen from his father. On the way he encounters the larger-than-life title character, Rob Roy MacGregor. Though Rob Roy is not the lead character, his personality and actions are key to the novel’s development. Waverley is set in the time of the Jacobite uprising of 1745 which sought to restore the Stuart dynasty in the person of Charles Edward Stuart, known as “Bonnie Prince Charlie”. A young English dreamer and soldier, Edward Waverley, is sent to Scotland that year. He journeys north from his aristocratic family home, Waverley-Honour, in the south of England, first to the Scottish Lowlands and the home of family friend Baron Bradwardine, then into the Highlands and the heart of the rebellion and its aftermath. Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet. He was the first modern English-language author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, with many contemporary readers in Europe, Australia, and North America.

The Wicked Guardian by Vanessa Gray

Clare Penryck is playing a dangerous game with Regency England’s most elegant bachelor…

Under the care of Lady Thorne, Clare meets Sir Benedict Choate, recognising him from her old paintings at home…

She is supposed to return to her Grandmother in Dorset, but when she dies, Sir Benedict is to become her guardian, much to Clare’s horror.

She had known this elegant aristocrat for only one London season — but that time had sufficed to show her how insufferably arrogant he could be.

Benedict made it clear that he expected Clare to be a very proper young lady, to remain safe on her secluded country estate and to wait for a decent match — an idea which Clare struggles with.

Both Benedict and the law said she must obey him. But headstrong Clare has no intention of doing so…

Sir Benedict Choate was clearly unprepared for the lesson in love he was about to be given — by a maddeningly wilful young girl who had so much to learn herself…

Is Benedict really the wicked guardian Clare believes him to be?

Or could he be her greatest protector?

Vanessa Gray (along with Jocelyn Carew) is a pen-name used by Jacquelyn Aeby, who was born in Indiana and graduated from the University of Chicago.

The Silver Link by Gwen Kirkwood

Compelling Scottish romance

Elspeth is the last of the Elliots of Everanlea.

She shares her uncle and grandmother’s love of their Scottish heritage but when her uncle Andrew dies suddenly, Elspeth is overwhelmed by the prospect that Everanlea, the family estate, belongs solely to her.

In spite of her boyfriend Hamish’s plea to move to France, Elspeth decides to return to Scotland and is determined to preserve Everanlea.

She is even more dismayed when her estranged father advises her to sell out to her neighbour, the headstrong and arrogant Robin Armstrong.

Feuds between the Elliots and the Armstrongs of Arnhill are legendary, and Elspeth has never quite forgiven Robin for his conduct towards her at a dance when she was only sixteen.

Nor has she forgotten his dark, curling hair and bright eyes…

Meanwhile, in Elspeth’s absence, Grandma Elliot has engaged a manager to help.

He is charming, handsome, an eligible a bachelor – and his name is Howard Elliot, but he is unfamiliar with the ways of Border shepherds.

Gran Elliot seems completely convinced by his charming manner and winning smile, but Elspeth is increasingly concerned by the dwindling numbers of sheep and Howard’s habits of rising late and the stench of alcohol that follows him everywhere…

Robin Armstrong heroically steps in to help with the care of the sheep but he admits he has ulterior motives.

Although Elspeth finds his advances hard to resist she’s still under the impression Robin’s flirting is motivated only by his lust for her estate.

With Gran Elliot recovering from an accident, a wayward manager on the bottle and Robin pursuing her, how will Elspeth cope?

Will she be able to restore Everanlea to its former glory?

Will she ever get to the bottom of Robin Armstrong’s true intentions and find the happy ending she so desperately seeks?
