In the raw, rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands, tumultuous times bred warrior men and women who fought for country, keep, and kin, and loved as passionately as they lived. An illegitimate son, chosen as laird after the ruling Douglas clan slaughtered his family, Connor Lindsay is surrounded by men who challenge his right to lead. Looking for a virtuous bride to cement his leadership by presenting him with an heir, he kidnaps a feisty laird's daughter. To keep this Highland Hellcat in his bed, he'll have to do battle with the Douglases, the Church, and most of all Brina herself.
"Mary Wine's writing is absolutely stellar." --CK2 Kwips & Critiques
"Mary Wine ranks right up there with Nora Roberts." --Fallen Angel
Wine (To Conquer a Highlander) deftly constructs another well-rounded Scottish historical. The older Chattan sisters are destined for arranged marriages, but high-spirited Brina was raised to be a bride of Christ. Then handsome laird Connor Lindsey kidnaps Brina to be his wife after her sister Deirdre is disgraced. Even as the aptly described hellcat begins to fall for her captor, she refuses to betray either her father s wishes or her own high standards: If I fail to honor his word, how could ye ever accept any promise I made to you? Gentle Connor, scarred by his difficult childhood, slowly introduces Brina to passion and love in a series of ardent encounters. Wine s fans will anticipate the final dramatic turn of events as much as the happy ending, where all loose ends are tied up and no hearts are left broken. \n
Enjoyed the storyline. A few twist here and there!
I paid $8 for this book thinking I was going to get a really good book according to the reviews. I just didn’t see it being worth that much. I’ve read better free books then this. I don’t mind spending the money if it’s a really good book. This one is just ok. I was disappointed.
