In this first in the MacCarrick Brothers series and “classic romantic adventure that will leave you breathless” (Julia Quinn, New York Times bestselling author), travel through Spain and the Scottish Highlands as a deadly mercenary finds his plans for vengeance disrupted by an exquisite noblewoman.
High in the Pyrenees, a band of mercenaries led by Courtland MacCarrick wages bloody war for General Reynaldo Pascal. But when Court demands his men’s payment, Pascal refuses and orders the highlander killed. Narrowly escaping, Court turns to vengeance by kidnapping Pascal’s beautiful Castilian fiancée.
Lady Annalía Tristán Llorente despises her towering, barbaric captor almost as much as she does Pascal. Her inexplicable attraction to the Highlander only fuels her fury. But she knows she cannot give in to her passion for she must return to Pascal. Otherwise, she signs her brother’s death warrant.
From the moment Court discovers that Anna's prim façade masks a fiery, brave lass, his heart is spellbound, and he dares to defy the curse that has shadowed his life—to walk with death or walk alone.
Another great romance
Kresley Cole has such a way of writing romances where you feel the passion burning from the pages. Escapism at its finest!
I'm a big fan of Ms. Kole's Immortals After Dark series so I decided to check out this first trilogy she wrote. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. She is an excellent story-teller with a gift for the steamy stuff! I'll read anything she writes.
yep! Another good one. Last week I read, If You Desire, because I had never read a Kresley Cole book, since I don't like paranormals,and just had a fun time with these stories. They are just edgy enough with the heroes violent natures, and funny as hell with the heroines. The banter is terrific. Annalia's craftiness in trying to escape from Court was hilarious.
What about Olivia?...Her sarcasm had me giggling throughout.
Kresley Cole...I'm really enjoying your stories. Now I'm going onto If you Decieve,...I think Ethan will drive me wild;)
