The author of Desiring the Highlander “entertains with noble self-sacrifice, double deceptions, sizzling attraction, and affectionate meddling” (Publishers Weekly).
Of the seven bold brothers born to defend their Scottish Highlands, Crevan McTiernay is the most restrained. But that doesn’t make him any less passionate . . .
It Begins as a Ploy . . .
When Raelynd Schellden and her sister are caught in the stables with the notorious McTiernay twins, her father sees not scandal, but opportunity. The future of his clan is uncertain, and a double engagement—even under false pretenses—will lend security to his people and protect his beloved daughters from power-mad fools.
. . . and Becomes a Pleasure
But Raelynd’s designated intended interests her far less than his quietly powerful brother Crevan, a man born to lead. Though bound by honor and committed to his sworn duty, Crevan cannot resist a taste of Raelynd’s crimson lips when offered—and then another and another—until the unlikely couple is entangled in both a public deception and each other’s hearts . . .
“A delightful Scottish romp with an array of characters I couldn’t help liking, even the supposed villain turns out to be a charmer. Tempting the Highlander is one those cozy reads that leaves a smile on your face at the end of the book.”—Fresh Fiction
“Reading like a delightful Shakespearean comedy, Sinclair’s latest has humor, passion and sexual tension.”—RT Book Reviews
In Sinclair's diverting fourth McTiernay 14th-century romance (after 2009's Desiring a Highlander), twin brothers Crevin and Craig McTiernay would lay down their lives for the good of their kin; giving up their bachelorhood, on the other hand, is too much to ask. Then Rae Schellden, a Highland neighbor and ally, persuades them to fake a double engagement to his identical twin daughters, Raelynd and Meriel. Laird Schellden vows the ruse will last no longer than one month, and the stakes are so high that the brothers cannot refuse. The only wrinkle in an otherwise perfect scheme is an unplanned love affair between Raelynd and Crevin... who are betrothed to each other's twins. Before it all gets sorted out, Sinclair entertains with noble self-sacrifice, double deceptions, sizzling attraction, and affectionate meddling by Crevin and Craig's sister-in-law.
