Tag...you're it!

So, the lovely, talented, Cecilia Roberts tagged me for The Lucky 7 Meme. (Thanks Cece!)
Here are the rules:
Lucky 7 Meme Rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy the next 7 lines (sentences or paragraphs) and post them as they’re written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 other writers and pass the meme on.
So, I recently finished my latest novel, and right now, am knee-deep in research for my next. Therefore, in keeping with the spirit of the Meme, I’ll have to cheat a little and give you the designated excerpt from a novel not yet published.
Excerpt:
“I…I didn’t know Evan lived out here,” she stammered. “He never mentioned it.”
The laird nodded. “Until he wis aboot eighteen, Ah wuid think. Then he wanted to venture oot oan his own as most yoong people do. Fine lad. Fine lad, indeed.”
Mariah could hardly wait for the Scottish Laird to finish his visit and leave the premises. The minute the door shut behind him, she whirled around to face the knights. “Does Evan know who you are?” she asked, directing the question to Cailen.
He nodded. “Aye.”
“And I’m assuming he knows the rest of the knights as well?” she asked as she swept her hand toward them.
“Aye, Murriah, he knoos,” he replied.
“I just don’t understand then,” she said. “He looked at all my sketches before I even stepped foot on the grounds. He never said a word. If nothing else, you’d think he would’ve wanted to prepare me for meeting you, so it wasn’t such a shock. Why didn’t he tell me about your existence?”
