AnnelrBrighton, MIAge: Over 65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Outlaws and Inlaws on the Scottish MoorsJune 13, 2017AnnelrBrighton, MIAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Masquerade Marriage by Anne Greene is a historical romance centering around Scotland in the mid-1700s. It's a story of a Scottish war between the English and the Scots and a story about families and the things we do for those who we love. Somewhat impetuous and bold, Megan, a young Lowland woman weds a Highlander to save his life and herself from an arranged marriage to an odious man. The characters are strong and vibrant, yet not without their flaws and faults. The story line is full of action and suspense, often keeping the reader on the edge of the seat wondering how it all will turn out. Will the mismatched bride and groom fall in love? Will they even live long enough to do so? The author gives a lot of interesting history of Scotland and uses the Scottish brogue throughout giving an interesting cadence to the reading of the book. Included at the beginning of the book is also a glossary of Scottish words that might be unfamiliar to the reader. I'm looking forward to reading more by this author. I won a complimentary copy of the book in a contest from Book Club network. I was not required to write a review and the opinions are my own.
