Product Description

About the Author

Margaret Moore actually began her writing career at the age of eight, when she and a friend would make up stories together. She also loved to read and many years later graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature. After reading a romance by Kathleen Woodiwiss, Margaret took a course in popular fiction writing and through that, found Romance Writers of America. Three years later, in 1991, she sold her first historical romance. And the rest, as they say, is history!

HASH(0xa642e3fc) out of 5 stars fine fifteenth century romance Feb. 8 2005
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1240 Scottish King Alexander awards Norman Sir Nicholas with Dunkeathe's Castle for his loyalty. Norman needs a wealthy bride so he announces that he hosts a selection gala. Ten ladies with quite a retinue participate with only one being a Scot, Lady Riona mac Dougen, whose kind Uncle Fergus wants the best for his ward.

Nicholas is attracted to the brave kindhearted Riona and relishes the idea she is Scottish because he needs a ticket to gain friends; however she has no dowry so he knows nothing can come of this. As he observes the women, several are brainless; some are haughty; while a few do not want to wed him. All except perhaps Riona knows the abusive price of failure from their male protector. Only Riona interests him and he her, but both realizes he can not choose an impoverished bride.

LORD OF DUNKEATHE is a fine fifteenth century romance that provides glimpses and hints of how women are less than cattle amidst the aristocracy. Readers will agree with Nicholas that the heroine is so perfect, she must be hiding something. The real rivals lack substance so that no true competition occurs. Still Nicholas is a captivating lead male hunk and Riona a delightful charmer so that fans of the sub-genre will enjoy this solid tale, but wonder what could have been if talented Margaret Moore broke out of the box into more of a historical plight of the female tale.

HASH(0xa644c564) out of 5 stars Historical Romance at its best! June 13 2006
By S. K. Leggate - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Usually, stories that start with gala balls specifically for the selection of wives is too reminicent of the story of Cinderella for me, and I spend my entire time being sceptical as I read. This novel proved to be different.

Lady Riona was from a good family, but not one of the richest. Her chances of being chosen by the Lord of Dunkeathe were slim in her eyes. Her Uncle Fergus thought differently, and insisted she attend anyway. Despite the odds against her she gives her best without compromising anything.

Ms. Moore weaves an exciting tale full of romance and emotion that will be hard for me to forget. The characters are very much alive and very true to human emotion. This was an amazing read!

HASH(0xa688c27c) out of 5 stars A good tale with a fatal flaw. July 11 2014
By MSPS - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Margaret Moore is a splendid author. Her tales are well thought out, they move quickly and do not get mired in useless detail. Most of the time her characters are likable and believable, with a good supporting cast as well. However, this author has a penchant for abruptly ending a story without an epilogue which in my opinion leaves the story hanging.Perhaps this is not as important to most readers as it is to me, but It is difficult for me to become so involved with a story, particularly a story in which I am involved with all of the characters to have it abruptly truncated with no resolution to the challenges each character is facing. It should not be a difficult task for an author to finish a story completely! This is a pet peeve of mine and I will never give an author five stars no matter how fine the story, because the lack of an epilogue suggests to me that the author did not care enuf for the other people in her story to finish them out and/or that she did value her reader's interest in the lessor character's she took so much trouble to introduce. Moore intrigues me with each story she writes and then destroys my pleasure with the entire tale by consistently terminating the story so abruptly. Will I continue to buy her books? Possibly, but I am becoming more reluctant and dissatisfied with each one I read~

HASH(0xa64617e0) out of 5 stars Best of the series!!! Oct. 4 2006
By SweetTart1985 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is without a doubt the best book of the series. You are just really hoping that the heroine will wear down our reluctant hero and get her true love to forget about his castle and start thinking about her! Well actually he thinks about her quite a lot...well just read the story it is very good. I read about this hero in Bride of Lachbarr and he was kind of a villian in that one but you know me I love a good bad boy, anyway he does find his redemption in The Lord of Dunkeathe. Love scenes are hot and spicy which is good. So 5 stars for a good intresting story which kept me in it and oh yeah that really handsome guy on the cover ya know come to think of it he is on like all of my romance books, even though is is really hot I mean can't they find like another guy, come on.

Lord of Dunkeathe

by Margaret Moore

Reviewer: Pamela Ackerson (author -- Home of the Braves trilogy)

Once in a while I like to pick up Medieval Romances and I believe I have found another favorite author. Margaret Moore doesn't just write, she weaves a tale that draws you into the story as if you are involved in the lives of her characters. She goes beyond the reader's dreams and makes her characters real people, with real personalities that you can relate to because -- you know someone like that! You cheer when the bad guy doesn't win and the knight in shining armor prevails. I am looking forward to more medieval romances from this author.
