Blog Tour and Giveaway – THE GUARDIAN by Margaret Mallory

98569778From the back of the book:

Four fearless warriors return to the Highlands to claim their lands and legacies. But all their trials on the battlefield can’t prepare them for their greatest challenge yet: winning the hearts of four willful Scottish beauties.

PASSION IGNITED

After years of fighting abroad, Ian MacDonald comes home to find his clan in peril. To save his kin, he must right the wrongs from his past…and claim the bride he’s long resisted.

As a young lass, Sileas depended on Ian to play her knight in shining armor. but when he rescue attempt compromised her virtue, Ian was forced to marry against his wishes. Five years later, Sileas has grown from an awkward girl into an independent beauty who knows she deserves better than the reluctant husband who preferred war to his wife. Now this devilishly handsome Highlander is finally falling in love. He wants a second chance with Sileas – and he won’t take no for an answer.

Scottish romances are always hit or miss for me and THE GUARDIAN is a big hit! I loved this book so much. Ian is a hero to die for – he is strong, fights for his family and country, and does whats right (even if he is forced into it). Sileas is also fantastic. She changes so much in the five years that Ian is gone. From a thirteen year old girl afraid of being married off to her step-fathers disgusting son to a beautiful woman who is the heart of her reluctant husband’s family. I really loved the way this book was written. It flows perfectly and not a single word is out of place. The action is fast paced and the tension is high. The relationship between Ian and Sileas is perfection. Even though she has been in love with him her whole life, she doesn’t allow Ian back in her good graces quickly. She makes him prove that he really wants her for her and not just because she has changed in appearance. Ian really has to learn what he wants from Sileas and their marriage. Another thing that I loved about this book was the relationship between Ian and his three cousins (who will have their own books). They work as a team and will do anything for each other – even die. They have a very strong bond that gave an emotional edge to the story. I can’t wait to read more in this series.
