Bride of the Beast
Sue-Ellen Welfonder

A lady in need of rescuing . . .

     Lady Catherine Keith finds herself plagued by a persistent Sassunach Earl who tries to press her into marriage. His intent is to acquire her holdings on Dunlaider Castle. Having been twice widowed, she does not want another man in her life. She tries to refuse the help that her sister has sent in the form of a battle-scarred warrior. In Sir Marmaduke Strongbow, she sees a proud and fearless warrior that is capable of solving all her problems. How will she react when she finds out that not only has he been sent to protect her lands, but to become her husband?

A Warrior sworn to protect . . .

      Sir Marmaduke Strongbow is stunned by the request of his closest friend Linnet MacKenzie. She fears for the safety of her sister Catherine and begs him to seek her out, protect her land, and become her husband true. He reluctantly gives in to her request and pledges his loyalty to protect Catherine’s land; but, he doubts once she views his scarred image she will willing agree to wed him. Or will she?

     Sue-Ellen Welfonder has given Marmaduke the magic that was needed to wrap this memorable character around the hearts of millions. I found this book to be the perfect ending to a character that I have grown to look for in prior novels. It was a joy to read/review such an extremely moving novel. Ms. Welfonder once again has produced another winner!
