AN ALLURING LASS
Emmaline Grey spends her days with her beloved dog, dreaming of the sea-until a brawling Highlander shatters her quiet life to pieces. Though her blindness prevents her from seeing his face, his voice is a warm blend of velvet and silk, and his rakehell ways unmistakable. Risking the wrath of a rival clan as she nurses him back to health, Emma soon realizes the real danger is the magnetic pull she feels to this half-naked Scot recovering in her bed.
A RECKLESS ROGUE
With his rugged handsomeness and wicked charm, Malcolm Grant wants nothing more out of life than whisky, women, and the occasional war. The only lass he's ever trusted left him with more scars than a battlefield. Yet now at the mercy of this sweet stranger, Malcolm can barely resist the gentle hands that make him feverish with desire-until Emma, the one he will never have, is the only woman he wants . . .
Quinn's winning fourth Highland Heirs historical (after The Scandalous Secret of Abigail MacGregor) depicts unforeseen dangers for a battle-weary Scot in 18th-century England. While visiting a brothel, Highland brothers Malcolm and Cailean Grant rescue a woman from abusive Andrew Winther. When the Winthers retaliate, Harry Grey, the owner of the brothel, asks his sister, Emma, to use her nursing skills to help heal the Grant brothers. Emma is a quietly confident and fearless woman; though she's blind, she's able to use her herbal remedies and keen sense of touch to nurse the brothers back to health. She becomes especially enamored of Malcolm, who is well-known for leaving a string of broken hearts in his wake. Malcolm greatly enjoys his time with Emma, but he's reluctant to believe himself capable of romantic feelings. As danger threatens to derail his newfound happiness with Emma, Malcolm must decide which risks he is willing to take for love. The gradual development of romance between the hard-hearted fighter and the resilient healer illuminates the fast-paced story.
