The MacGowan Betrothal by Lois Greiman In 1535 Scotland, Gilmour MacGowan is determined to marry the lovely Isobel Fraser, the twin sister of his brother's wife. Although all the women in the castle desire Gilmour, Isobel wants no part of the handsome MacGowan -- much to Gilmour's intense irritation. But Isobel was raised outside the keep because her mother though twins were evil, and sent the tiny Isobel away from her home. Now Isobel is determined never to marry, and to protect her clan from a great danger, of which she fears the handsome Gilmour may be a part. Nevertheless, Gilmour knows that they are meant to be together, and sets out to prove to Isobel that he is the man that she will wed.

The MacGowan Betrothal is the second installment in Lois Greiman's Highland Scoundrels series. The series focuses on an intriguing prophecy about the Fraser brides and the kind of man it takes to win the hand of a Fraser woman. Gilmour MacGowan must overcome quite a few obstacles to convince his lady love of his sincerity, and the feisty Isobel is not easy to convince, although she does secretly find the brawny Scotsman attractive. The MacGowan Betrothal is classic Lois Greiman: the background is intriguing, the characters are compelling, and the trip to the Scottish Highlands is a true joy.
