Ratings and Reviews 2 47 star ratings 2 reviews. Yes No Thanks for your feedback! I really enjoyed these books and the flow through with each of them. I found they are well written. I could not put them down and was disappointed that they did not go on longer. Love it could not put in down all the brothers seaman Alexander Dugan patrol and brother in law Griffin.
However, the nearly instant attraction to Alexandra was just a wee bit ho-hum. Once arriving at the castle, Nichola is placed in the tower room and is kept there for her own protection. Things continue to heat up between Alexander and Nichola of course and reach a very satisfying conclusion. Points I didn't like about this book: I thought the castle peoples' hatred of the English was far too easy overcome by Nichola - esp since hardly any of them actually see her. Points I liked about this book: This was written very well and gave more punch to what happens at the end of the story.
I literally didn't see it coming.
This was a nice light read. Although my review may seem a bit negative, I liked this story far more than I disliked. I have just read some great books lately and maybe this had a detrimental affect when I read this one. I will definetly keep an eye out for her next one and see how she goes. View all 3 comments.
Jul 06, Jilly rated it did not like it. It sounded so good in a purely naughty way. She is his captive.
His Seduction (MacGruder Brothers, #5) by Diana Cosby
This book was frustrating not because of any sexually tension being built but my the pure annoyance of the characters. Nichola is just to weak seeming and while she is supposedly falling in love with Alexander she is so against every move he makes going as far as to wish him ill. Their many arguments are tedious at best. Alexander and his brothers are to carbon copy of other, better, stories.
Once meeting certain characters, you know It sounded so good in a purely naughty way. Once meeting certain characters, you know the outcome of the book, who will do what and who is actually someone else. Cosby tries to throw you off the trail of Wulfe's secret identity but it is so obvious it hurts. The reason I originally snagged this book was because it sounded good. The back of the book is more interesting than the whole of it. In the description it says that Alexander's goal is to avenge his father's death so you almost assume against Nichola's family but he vengefulness is a general attitude towards the English, Longshanks in particular.
It doesn't even seem like a major factor in the story. And the whole "making her a target for those who have no qualms shedding English blood" make it sound like a huge danger lurks around any corner, when in truth the danger only manifests itself a few chapters from the end and is obvious and doesn't make you scared one wit for her life. Cosby was very new to me but I doubt I'll be reading anything by her again. I do plan on swapping this book if anyone will ever take it off my hands.
It isn't worth that much. Chemistry seemed rather forced. I can't recommend it. I didn't like it or dislike it. The book couldn't keep my interests long enough for me to form a strong opinion either way. I took a lot of breaks with this book. Oct 04, Kelly rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this book. I can't wait to read Duncan's story next. Apr 19, Bianca rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed this book! I loved the sweet heroine and the conflicted brooding Scottish hero!

The stones within would draw the one person meant for each of them, "a woman who would teach them to love and make them whole. But money is money, right? So he takes her back to their castle, sends the ransom, and proceeds to fall for her. But an English lass in a Scottish stronghold, espe "How had he ever been so blessed to have been gifted with her in his life? But an English lass in a Scottish stronghold, especially one without the funds to pay the ransom, does not have a safe and peaceful life.
Will Alexander admit that she holds her heart before all is lost? Northumberland and Scottish Borderlands, While she is a willing partner, there is a bit of a feeling of seducing her to get his own way - she'll enjoy it even when she doesn't want to. For example, this book is likely to be pivotal to Book 4. But it would also happily stand alone. There isn't really an over-arching plot, other than historic events and the MacGruder's role in them.
Cosby has included references to historic events. Eg Berwick and Wallace's death. They are a little clumsy at times, I'm afraid. It does help to place us in the time and give the reader the impression the MacGruder's have a pivotal role in Scotland's defence. But I found it heavy handed. Nichola is abducted from her home, her life is threatened frequently. She is shown infrequent care and support from Alexander as they trek to his castle.
Once there her life is completely under his control - her fears, her comfort, her food, her freedom. And so she feels empathy for him. She is forced to trust in him, defend him, support him, and love him. Trauma bonding is real and he does truly care for her. And she learnt to love him. But I struggled to suspend my disbelief. I love the premise of this series.

The enchanted room with magic stones which lead each of the men to that which they need the most. Alexander's stone is azurite. But in "His Captive" it didn't. I found the story clumsy and forced, and I simply couldn't get past the abduction. Hoping Book 2 will be better, because I really, really want it to be. Apr 08, Misfit marked it as abandoned. Over and above 1 this medieval Baron's sister called off her own engagement!! Finally on pages His hair, black as midnight, disappeared behind broad well-muscled shoulders. A scar slashed down his left cheek; an aged line adding to his daunting presence.
Cobalt eyes, half shielded by long, thick black lashes studied her with unapologetic interest. Eyes of a man who'd seen too much devastation. As she continued to stare at him, a scowl carved the man's strong-boned face, an expression as unwelcoming as it was dangerous. View all 13 comments.

Lovers Now Nichola is trapped--by her powerful attraction to a man whose touch shakes her to the core. Jul 01, Karen rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Sometimes you just pick up a book and can't put it down and this book did just that to me. I have read many books with the plot Scottish Warrior for one reason or another comes in possession of an English Lady, both try and deny their attraction but somehow live happily ever after, and some authors manage to hold your attention better than others.
This book really held my attention and I really felt the chemistry between the characters. If you like a bit of romance in the Scottish Highlands then Sometimes you just pick up a book and can't put it down and this book did just that to me.

If you like a bit of romance in the Scottish Highlands then give this one a go. I am looking forward to reading more from this author and have my fingers crossed she will be writing about our hero, Alexander's brothers. Jan 17, Anne rated it really liked it Shelves: Lady Nichola Wescott is kidnapped by Alexander MacGruder in hopes that her wastrel brother will come up with much needed money to help his cause.
But he does not expect the feelings he has for Nichola, and he must fight these feelings in order to get the ramsome money, in spite of many of his men wanting to see her dead. Add a treacherous ex-fiance to the mix, and a good story ensues. Aug 02, Andrea rated it liked it Shelves: I'm not much of a romance reader, but I needed something lighter between two novels about serial killers and a Stephen King novel, so this was it. I got it as a Nook Free Friday selection.
The story kept me fairly interested. I thought the ending was a little weird, but, other than that, it was an entertaining story. Jul 28, Dianna Rostad rated it it was amazing. An entertaining historical romance. I loved the whole series. Desperate, Rois makes a shocking claim against the suspected accuser, Sir Griffin Westcott. But her impetuous lie leaves her in an outrageous circumstance: Yet Griffin is far from the man Rois thinks he is--and much closer to the man of her dreams Griffin may be an Englishman, but in truth he leads a clandestine life as a spy for Scotland.
Refusing to endanger any woman, he has endured the loneliness of his mission. But Rois's absurd charge has suddenly changed all that. Now, with his cover in jeopardy, Griffin must find a way to keep his secret while keeping his distance from his spirited and tempting new wife--a task that proves more difficult than he ever imagined Read more Read less.

Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Having read the first 4 books of the MacGruder series and having fallen in love with the characters as well as the setting, I was on pins and needles waiting for this latest edition. I was not disappointed! Diana Cosby fills her stories with rich landscapes and characters that you love, or love to hate, depending on their roles. The history of Scotland is filled with struggle and this story follows Griffin and Rois as they too struggle with fear, war, distrust, deceit, and the greed of a King who wants to rule their little corner of the world.
It's truly hard to imagine the horrible conditions the people of Griffin and Rois's time survived, while still finding happiness. Diana has captured that struggle as well as the pride of a great people. Please Diana, tell me there will be more! Diana Cosby does it again with the next book in the MacGruder Series.
