Clan Gordon and Clan Macgregor are forging an alliance in the form of a marriage between Carrick Gordon and Analise Macgregor. As first born son Carrick will be laird one day and Analise is the widowed niece of the old Macgregor laird. Both have agreed to the marriage sight unseen. Can an arranged marriage work? Only time will tell.

This short story is both sweet and frustrating. Well, frustrating because neither Analise nor Carrick are mind readers and then they tend to assume things about each other based on past experiences. So, they end up at cross purposes. I wanted to bang their heads together a few times, but not in a bad way. I mean, they’re pretty good characters, just strangers to each other, so preconceived notions tend to trip them up. However, it all works out in the end. I’d love to read more about their slice of the world.


  1. Hate the frustrating part of it, so I'll avoid it like the plague - thanks for sharing ;)

    1. It was frustrating in a good way though. Really! :)
