THE RETURN OF THE HIGHLANDERS: BOOK 2
Four fearless warriors return to the Highlands to claim their lands and legacies. But all their trials on the battlefield can't prepare them for their greatest challenge yet: winning the hearts of four willful Scottish beauties.
Alex MacDonald is known for his skill as a warrior, his prowess with women, and his vow to never take a wife. But now his chieftain has asked him to make the ultimate sacrifice: wed Glynis MacNeil, a lass famed throughout the Highlands for her exquisite beauty-and defiant ways.
Familiar with heartbreak, Glynis refuses to fall for another handsome scoundrel. Yet when Alex's past sins force an unlikely union, Glynis gives in to temptation and becomes his wife. Will their newfound passion be strong enough to fight the enemy that threatens their home, their clan, and their very lives?
In Mallory's sizzling and captivating second Return of the Highlanders 16th-century adventure (after May 2011's The Guardian), sexy warrior Alex MacDonald is stunned by his sudden and unrelenting desire for Glynis, his chieftain's beautiful, fiery daughter. Undeterred by her reluctance to remarry after her miserable first marriage, Alex seeks her out and soon agrees to escort her on a dangerous journey across the perilous Scottish terrain. Their mutual desires collide in unspoken passion, but first they must overcome the specters of Alex's colorful past and Glynis's failed marriage. Alex and Glynis decide to marry, but then Glynis discovers seeming signs of Alex's indiscretion, and vengeful enemies threaten them both. Despite harping on Glynis's excessive stubbornness and irritating distrust long after Alex has proven his devotion, Mallory weaves a fine yarn with plenty of spice and thrills.

I'm rather picky about romance novels these days. As I've read so many, it's hard to find an author that doesn't cross the same t's and dot the same i's as the rest of the multitude. I'm pleased to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book; Indeed, I enjoyed the entire series. Not only is the author adept at storytelling, she's also an excellent historian.
