Never had Elspeth Stewart imagined her wedding would be interrupted by a dark-haired stranger charging in on a black stallion, scooping her into his arms, and carrying her off across the wild Scottish highlands. Pressed against his hard chest and nestled between his strong thighs, she ought to have feared for her life. But her captor silenced all protests with a soul-searing kiss, giving Elspeth a glimpse of the pain behind his passion—a pain only she could ease.
"Mad Rob" MacLaren thought stealing his rival's bride-to-be was the perfect revenge. But Rob never reckoned that this beautiful, innocent lass would awaken the part of him he thought dead and buried with his wife. Against all reason, he longed to introduce the luscious Elspeth to the pleasures of the flesh, to make her his, and only his, forever.
With two clans against them burning for battle, they must find a way to join together—body, breath, and soul. Or both will be made to pay for the… SINS OF THE HIGHLANDER
Mason (A Knight's Honor) and Marlowe (Touch of a Thief) team up to create a strapping specimen of the abducted bride subgenre, in which Elspeth Stewart is whisked from standing in front of the altar to the back of Mad Rob MacLaren's horse before you can say sporran. Mad Rob's come to revenge himself on Elspeth's intended husband, Lachlan Drummond, for the rape of Rob's wife, Fiona, and her subsequent suicide. In a chase through hidden caves, across moors and lochs, and up a secret passageway to Caisteal Dubh, Elspeth and Rob fall in love, despite the specter of Fiona and the disapproval of Rob's followers. Fast-paced, tense, and full of wicked desire, this solid romance novel attests to Mason and Marlowe's skills and ability to collaborate on a taut, intriguing, and satisfying story.

I really enjoyed this book. It was good, fun escapism. The characters grabbed at my heart and I was rooting for their happy ending. Despite the obstacles ahead of them, I was not disappointed.
