About the author
Margaret Mallory is the award-winning author of the Scottish historical romance series, THE RETURN OF THE HIGHLANDERS, and the medieval trilogy, ALL THE KING'S MEN. Her books have won numerous honors, including RT Book Reviews' Best Scotland-Set Historical Romance Award, a RITA© nomination, the National Readers' Choice Award, and two Maggies. CAPTURED BY A LAIRD is the first book in her new Scottish Historical series, THE DOUGLAS LEGACY. Margaret abandoned her career as a lawyer to become a romance novelist when she realized she'd rather have thrilling adventures with handsome Highland warriors than write briefs and memos. Margaret lives with her husband in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, which looks a lot like parts of the Scottish Highlands. Now that her children are off on their own adventures, she spends most of her time writing, but she also loves to read, watch movies, hike, and travel. Readers can find information on all of Margaret’s books, as well as photos of Scotland, historical tidbits, and links to follow her on Facebook and Twitter on her website, www.MargaretMallory.com.
