The Bridegroom Wore Plaid by Grace Burrowes

The Bridegroom Wore Plaid (MacGregor Trilogy, #1)Historical Romance
Goodreads Summary:
Burrowes’ acclaimed Regency series following the children of the Duke of Moreland has been called “captivating” and “marvelous”. Now, first in an exciting new Victorian romance series, Burrowes brings a new world of historical detail and lush romance to the Scottish Highlands, where a penniless earl falls in love with the wrong woman in The Bridegroom Wore Plaid…
In an effort to preserve the family estate, Ian MacGregor, the Earl of Balfour, must marry for money. When a promising match emerges in the form of a rich English heiress, Ian devises a plan to woo her: by impressing this heiress’s poor cousin and chaperone, Augusta Merrick. But after spending time with Augusta and falling for her quirky charms, Ian begins to question whether or not he’s willing to forfeit his heart to save the family name…

Augusta has had it with being a spinster, and when the Earl of Balfour decides to become her friend, she decides that he could be a temporary love affair before she finally tries to settle down. But as they spend more time together, Augusta begins to wonder if there is anyone else that can captivate and entice her in the way Ian does… and Ian uncovers a deep family secret in Augusta’s past that could change everyone’s lives forever.

Grace Burrowes writes a good book and The Bridegroom Wore Plaid is no exception.  This is the first in a new series, The Macgregor Trilogy #1.  After reading the book I have no clue who will be featured in book #2.
I did enjoy all of the characters in The Bridegroom Wore Plaid.  Ian MacGregor kept trying to make the noble sacrifice for his family.  His mind kept overruling his heart.  Augusta Merrick was a wonderful character.  She is the perfect match for Ian but feels she must also make the noble sacrifice and ignore her heart.  It was fun to watch their interaction and how they finally came together. 
There was a lot of action in the book.  Everything kept moving and of course there was a mystery in the background.  It was great to see so many HEA’s in the book.  More than Ian and Augusta found their true love.  Thus my puzzlement about who will be featured in the next book.
