Connor Lindsey is a handsome Highland laird, but his clan’s loyalty is hard won and he takes nothing for granted. He was born a bastard and he knows how hard life can be with such a stigma, especially when your parents aren’t around to protect you. Small wonder he’ll do whatever it takes to find a virtuous wife, even if he has to kidnap her…and he needs a wife because he is looking for allies against the rich and strong Douglas clan – they had kidnapped his younger sister for a turn and are looking forward to taking his land as well.
Lindsey chose the Chattan clan but the girl promised to him, Deidre Chattan, has been unfaithful even before their marriage. A no-no to say the least of it. She had two sisters, though…The youngest one, Brina Chattan has always defied convention because she has been named a Bride of Christ from her birth. She sees no reason to be docile now that she’s been captured by Lindsey instead of her sister and taken to his storm-tossed castle in the Highlands, far from her home.When a rival laird’s interference nearly tears them apart, Connor discovers that a woman with a wild streak suits him much better than he’d ever imagined…
I won this book courtesy of Blodeuedd and her friend, bf, who very kindly drew my number. I promised to write a review. I try to keep my promises. By the way the interview with the author was interesting and funny so I decided to give her book a chance.
– This one wasn’t really my style of romance. The book has been touted as “deeply romantic”. Hmm, deeply indeed. All these “deeply romantic” situations (mostly involving the right girl and the right boy in bed) I found rather spurious, written just to titillate naughty teen girls. The author can’t even claim she wanted to develop her readers’ imagination as these scenes were rather painfully detailed to tell you the truth. I think it was my biggest hurdle; that and the flatness of main characters as well.
