Laird Magnus Sutherland loves women. His prowess in the bedchamber has earned him the name Devil of Dunrobin, but no woman has ever stirred his heart. Magnus needs to provide his clan with an heir, which is the only reason he agrees to marry the neighboring chieftain’s sister. When his betrothed arrives, he discovers the chieftain has two sisters. If Magnus must bind himself to one woman, he intends to discover which is best suited to be his wife, for he wants more than a body to plant his seed. He wants a mate for life. There are three reasons Lady Effie Reay refuses to vie for Laird Sutherland’s affections… For one, she is thirty-two and would surely lose a competition to her beautiful, younger sister. Secondly, Laird Sutherland is a well-reputed rake, and she holds no desire to wed another faithless man. And thirdly, the sight of him makes her tingle, shiver and ache. Will Effie be successful in thwarting Magnus’ advances, or will her body succumb to a temptation that can only lead to heartbreak?
Short and hot! This story was exactly what I needed. It had all the elements I want in a historical read. Highlander. Strong heroine. Hot sex. HEA.
Magnus is his clan’s Laird. He knows its time for him to marry and produce an heir. The only problem? He loves women. All women. When his betrothed shows up early, he finds himself instantly smitten with her older sister. He thinks she’s beautiful, kind and just the type of woman he wants as a wife.
Effie is a widow and a Laird’s sister. She’s helping to escort her younger sister to a neighboring clan so she can meet her future husband. Magnus is everything Effie wouldn’t want in a husband for herself. She was married to an unfaithful man before and that’s what Magnus reminds her of.
When Magnus decides he wants to marry Effie instead of her sister, outside influences try to keep them apart.
I, again, really enjoyed this story and would definitely read more by this author.
