Heart of Gold

Book 2 of the Macpherson Brothers Trilogy

From the wild shores of the Scotland's Western Isles to the bloody fields of France to the glittering courts of Europe, the Macpherson Trilogy follows a family's fight for Scottish independence against the Tudor king, Henry VIII.


At the tournament of two kings, Elizabeth Boleyn has attracted not only the eyes of Henry Tudor, but those of the Scottish warrior, Ambrose Macpherson, whose bold offer might be her only salvation...

Ambrose Macpherson feels attraction for the daughter of the English diplomat. That the hated English king is pursuing her makes Elizabeth an even greater prize. But after witnessing an act of treachery that could topple the crown, Elizabeth has vanished. Ambrose knows that fate will allow him no rest until he finds her…

After reading Philippa Gregory books, I ran across this story about a third Boleyn girl. She was feisty, artistic, a true renaissance woman. She spends years running from her estranged father, and King Henry VIII, and a murderer who knows she witnessed him killing someone. A good story I had a hard time putting down. - Amazon Reader Review

I am truly in love with May McGoldrick novels right now. I have read eight in the last three months starting with the Angel of Skye in the MacPherson Clan Series. Each novel is a stand alone but I think it would be helpful to read them in order because so many of her characters are woven into other stories in the series. I get so caught up in the stories that I think about the characters even when I have to put the book down. They have made me laugh and cry. Truly the mark of a great book. The stories are not cookie cutter and I like that the heroes and heroines in her books admit their love for each other and then have to work together to conquer the villains. - Amazon Reader Review
