The Reformed Rogues series follows the lives of three fearsome Highland Warriors who form a bond stronger than any blood tie. It is set in 11th Century Scotland during the reign of 'The Red King.' Books can be read as a standalone but recommend reading books in order.
Highland Chieftain Beiste MacGregor is a ruthlessly ambitious warrior with the viciousness of a beast. He has little interest in women beyond the bedchamber. On the order of the Red King, he reluctantly travels with his men to the lowlands to formalize a betrothal to a woman from clan Dunbar. He is not prepared for the troublesome but striking clan healer he meets on the way, who not only infuriates him but stirs something deep within his soul.
Amelia Dunbar is a clan healer and the illegitimate daughter of the Earl of Dunbar. When she is not serving as a companion to her half-sister, she is tirelessly attending to the sick in her clan. Amelia has plans to find her mother's people in the Highlands and is about to embark on her journey when she is waylaid by the arrival of fearsome warriors. One warrior, they call 'the Beast', rouses her ire and sets her heart racing at the same time.

Not historically correct so if that is what you want this is not for you. Loved the characters and storyline. Fun, cute quick read. He bellows and she’s got a sharp tongue… what’s not to love!
Good book, but…
The book has a good story & lovable character. Obviously though, no one proofread or edited it. Some parts I had to slow way down & a few I even had to reread. If it weren’t for that, I would gladly read the rest of the books in the series. I just can’t justify spending money on a book that is somewhat difficult to read.
So, this book I just “accidentally” picked up while reading on English historical romance and what a way to be introduced into another Era of historical romance! This book just kept getting better and better- definite page turner. The characters are so realistic and hilarious, esp. the men. Very witty and as far as romance goes- utterly passionate. This is a wonderful upcoming author that I will be on the lookout for!
