Review: Once Upon a Plaid by Mia Marlowe

A wife may be courted, too. . .

Many would count Katherine Douglas fortunate indeed. Laird William Douglas is broad-shouldered, gentle-handed, everything a lass could dream. But after four years of marriage, Katherine still knows little of what goes on in his heart. And she has yet to bear him an heir. The distance between them is too great--and so she flees over the snowy highlands to Glengarry Castle, home of her childhood, to set her husband free. 

But William won't let his wife slip away without a fight. Before long, he's at her father's threshold himself, witness to the rumbles of discontent in Glengarry, the bright joy of Yuletide at a family hearth, and the hidden needs of his own beloved. . .

A holiday Highland historical, oh my! Mia Marlowe has an amazing talent when it comes to bringing Scottish romance to life and with this tale of rekindled romance she outdoes herself. The deep emotions and history between the leading couple is both heart-warming and heart-wrenching. Katherine and William so obviously belong together but day-to-day problems come between them and what better way to bring back the love than with the magic of the Yuletide season. As with every story I've read by Ms. Marlowe the details and descriptions bring to live a time and place so many dream of. She weaves scene, setting, people and perspective so seamlessly that before I know it I'm once again turning the last page on one of her lovely stories. Her skill took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride as I truly become entrenched in what happens with this couple. Do yourself a huge favor if you are a fan of this genre, get this one and give yourself one fantastic gift.
