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!

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.
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!

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.
