Maya Banks, the New York Times bestselling author of romance and romantic suspense has captivated readers with her steamy Scottish historical novels, perfect for fans of Julie Garwood. In Bed with a Highlander is the start of a beguiling trilogy featuring three unforgettable brothers risking everything to save their clan and their legacy—and to surrender their hearts to love.
Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his—until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan’s clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.
The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn—and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin’s strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons—and embrace a love that means more than revenge and land.
Ewan McCabe, eldest brother and laird of the McCabe clan, is a warrior willing to take on the king of Scotland in defense of the woman he loves. Of course, that woman, Mairin Stuart, frustrates, confounds, and challenges Ewan, but he is helpless before her beauty and singular charm. They first meet under grim circumstances when Mairin, bruised and bloodied by McCabe archenemy Duncan Cameron, shows up on his doorstep. She protected Ewan's young son from Cameron's abuse, and Cameron will stop at nothing to get his hands on her sizable dowry, so Ewan allows her to stay in his keep. There ensues much grabbing of land and booty as the foes match wits and armies. Highland fans will enjoy this charming trilogy opener and keep an eye out for the sequels.
Wow what a story!! I really enjoyed it. Humor and tears. A little bit more sexually graphic than I care for but I skipped those pages and it was still a good story.
Literally couldn’t finish this read. Have loved some of her other stuff but this was awful
I couldn’t finish
Books 2 and 3 in this series are much better! Trust me, start with book 2 the rest of the series is Really good.
