Written in 1819 by Walter Scott, "Tales of My Landlord" consisted of two tales, "The Bride of Lammermoor" (also published by E-Bookarama Editions), which occupied the first two-and-a-half volumes, and the shorter "A Legend of Montrose", which occupied the remainder of the third and the whole of the fourth volume.
"A Legend of Montrose" is set in the tumultuous 17th century during the Earl of Montrose's military campaign in Scotland. Allan M'Aulay and his friend Lord Menteith both serve in Montrose's army, together with the loose cannon Dugald Dalgetty. The friends are also both in love with Annot Lyle, a beautiful young lady of mysterious heritage. Will they all make it through the war, and which of the friends will Annot finally choose?
