Summary

Maude Sutherland grew up racing the boys, but when adolescence arrived, she became the ugly duckling of her clan. Sent to the Scottish royal court of King Robert the Bruce, forced to navigate the social machinations of courtiers, Maude is certain no man will choose her over the more elegant ladies-in-waiting. When a Highland laird arrives and sweeps her off her feet, Maude finds hope that she might grow into a swan. Can he convince her to trust his intentions are true?

Kieran MacLeod arrived at court to settle clan business and to have a dalliance or two. But when he discovers a woman with lush curves crying on a terrace, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to the shy lady-in-waiting. Kieran finds he must use patience and kindness to lure Maude out of her shell. Can Kieran help Maude overcome her self-consciousness to stoke the passion stirring between them?

This slow-burn romance bursts into flames as Kieran and Maude must unite to defend their love when she is put to the test by the MacLeod clan. Can Maude withstand the scrutiny? Or will Kieran's family have the last word?

Contains mature themes.

A Wall Flower at the Highland Court

Well Celeste I don’t know what to say . This book is fantastic. I loved it right from the first words. I need to get these highland court books from number one. I have a few and have loved each of them. I love the atmosphere at Court. I can imagine Robert the Bruce and his wife, the way they live, how the Court runs. How each of the ladies in waiting, work on a time scale. They all eat together and live their lives
Like a convent. I love how the lairds come to stay. I love how Robert the Bruce knows each person, their families, how their lives are lived.
This story is excellent and if I could get it to extend and not end would make me very happy. Well done Miss Barclay you have made an old girl very happy. I loved it. By the way. The narration was first class. The narrator was excellent. X

What a wonderful story, love the History!

Tim Campbell what a great narration, you never fail
to bring the story to life. Celeste Barclay, thank you
for sharing this beautiful love story. Maude Sutherland,
a Laird's daughter and her Brawny, Warrior Laird
Kieran Mac Leod. This story shows true love between
these two. They had multiple stumbling blocks
thrown in their paths. I love the sass and the
determination Maude shows.
