Publisher's Description

Two brothers fight to claim one father’s blessing.
Two sisters long to claim one man’s heart.


In the autumn of 1788, amid the moors and glens of the Scottish Lowlands, two brothers and two sisters each embark on a painful journey of discovery.

Jamie and Evan McKie both want their father Alec’s flocks and lands, yet only one brother will inherit Glentrool. Leana and Rose McBride both yearn to catch the eye of the same handsome lad, yet only one sister will be his bride.
A thorny love triangle emerges, plagued by lies and deception, jealousy and desire, hidden secrets and broken promises. Brimming with passion and drama, Thorn in My Heart brings the past to vibrant life, revealing spiritual truths that transcend time and penetrate the deepest places of the heart.

    In 1788 Scotland, twin brothers, Evan and Jamie McKie vie for a father's blessing. When the elder McKie gives the blessing to the wrong brother, chaos and murderous threats ensue. Driven away from the prosperous estate of Glentrool by his jealous brother, Jamie flees to his uncle Lachlan's property of Auchengray with the blessing of his mother, Rowena. Once there, he hides his true intentions of seeking a bride among his cousins Leana and Rose, and agrees to work for a month for his uncle Lachlan while he decides which cousin to marry.

    Somehow, everything goes wrong. From his wedding, to which woman he truly chose, to his return to Glentrool. Plagued by the deceit of the past and the lies of the present, hidden secrets and two sisters that vie for his heart, Jamie is torn between what is right - and what truly belongs to him.

    From the beginning of this book till the last page, Thorn in My Heart will capture your imagination and your heart. The very human struggles each character faces, will endear them to you even more. The harshness of a father. The love of two sisters. And the undeserved redemption and forgiveness offered to one man who neither wants nor deserves it. It is a thrilling peek into the lives of a family that is very much like our own, who face the same challenges we do, and are as human as we are. A wonderful, recommended book and series.

    I loved the first four books of this series, I own paper copies of all of them. I'm sad to see that this book is not available as an ebook. The story is inspired by the Jacob, Leah & Rachel love triangle from the Bible. I highly recommend the book and I would love to see all six books available as an ebook package.

    This book is so good, it will keep you up at night, reading just one more chapter. It really pulled me in the story. The characters are consistent in their actions, yet not always predictable. Will buy all three for my library and I can't wait to read the 4th book.

    This novel was absolutely wonderful! I lost several hours of sleep because I could not put it down. I liked that it was based on a Bible story and kept going back to mine to help me remember the real life story. I was anxious to see how she worked in the marriage deception and of course it was great. The author is so good at writing about adult subjects without compromising Christian values. I felt sad, happy,excited and hopeful as the story unfolded. It also reminded me that God promises to never leave me even when I mess up. I can't wait to start the second book.

    I did not like this book! It was too soap-operish for me. I thought trying to transplant the biblical story of Jacob/Leah/Rachel into 18th-century Scotland was... a bit of a stretch! And I never could root for Leana's relationship with Jamie like I felt the author wanted. She seemed far too obsessive and desperate for that kind of "love" to be healthy.
