I’m anxiously awaiting the poll results to see whether Scotland will separate from the United Kingdom. I have to be honest and say that I haven’t followed the news closely to weigh the pros and cons of secession. However, part of me hopes that Scotland will secede just because so many Scots fought valiantly to prevent English takeover centuries ago. It’s not my fault that clan flags are waving and Scottish bagpipes are playing in my head. That I blame entirely on romance novels. Yes, I’m definitely a lassie who has read way too many novels about sexy highlander lords abducting some wenches while simultaneously protecting their castles. Oh, and I guess I shouldn’t fail to mention Bonnie Prince Charles. After all, any Scottish person worth his weight in haggis fought to put the true prince back on the Scottish throne during the 18th century. 😉
To celebrate this historic day, here are some great Scottish historical romances that I’ve eaten up over the years.
