Diana Cosby Recommends 5 of Her Favorite Scottish Romance Novels

The bestselling author of The Forbidden Series recommends Scottish romance novels that will touch your heart.

I love reading Scottish romance. There’s something magical about the medieval era, the knights who live by the code of chivalry, and the woman who dare not only to forge their own way, but fight for what they believe in. In this era of high-stakes turmoil, I enjoy turning the pages of a Scottish historical romance to watch how the characters overcome challenges and fall in love.

As a teenager, I remember reading two romance novels a day, and becoming totally engrossed in each story. For me the stories offered an escape to where the good guys lost and life had happy endings. So, with the numerous books I’ve read over the years, deciding what my top favorite Scottish romance novels are was a fun challenge.

The Secret is my all-time favorite ‘go to’ Scottish medieval book when my muse needs to be refilled. Ms. Garwood has an incredible knack for making a reader laugh, cheer for her hero and heroine, and sweeping you into her stories.
