In the throes of fierce clan wars, the Queen’s Regent tricks the children of two feuding lairds into a desperate choice: marry or die. The union—however reluctant—of a MacPherson and a Robertson could end three generations of hostilities between the two families.
Ailis Robertson wanted a husband, not a savage. But she is rocked by the intense passion she feels for Bhaic—who is likewise taken aback by the fierce jealousy he experiences when he sees Ailis speaking with other men. Is it possible for fierce enemies to become ardent lovers?
In case you don’t know, there are very few things in romance literature that I love more than a Scottish Highlander romance. It’s pretty much my favorite thing. In this book, I got a lot of my likes.
1.) Scottish Highlander Romance
2.) Two rival clans that truly hate each other.
3.) A forced or arranged marriage that became a love match.
4.) A struggling heroine trying to fit in with her husband’s clan.
This book started out so good. I devoured 60 % in no time but then it hit a plateau and stayed there. It was a really good book by a great author. I just wish that the last 40% was as enthralling as the first 60%.
