Bestselling author Maya Banks’s beguiling new trilogy features 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.
From the Paperback edition.
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.

In bed with the hihlander
A little pricey but one of the best Scottish romances I’ve read and I’ve read a lot since Scottish romances are my favorite. Only ones I’ve liked better are glynnis Campbells.
One of my Favorite Books of all Time
This book was just a good read. Everything about it was enjoyable and the characters are just so lovable. Could read it 100 times and still love it!
In Bed With a Highlander
Maya Banks, again, has written a wonderful story. The love story between Ewen and Mairin is wonderful and steamy. The loyalty of his clan to him and and their mistress is remarkable even in the face of deceit. The character development was done well. I loved this story and never wanted it to end.
