When her late father was branded a traitor to the king, Catherine Percy found sanctuary in Scotland. But a case of mistaken identity put her in a compromising position with the Highland earl sworn to protect her. Marriage to him saved her reputation, but nothing could save her from the stormy passion that bent her innocent body to his will--and shattered his last defense...
The acclaimed author of The Thistle and the Rose presents an exciting new trilogy. Three sisters each hold a clue to their family's treasure--and the key to the hearts of three Highland warriors...
I love a good Highlander romance and this one wasn’t too bad. We have a laird who is about to marry a woman that he does not love and has no plans to love, who then meets a woman…not his intended, in his bed. This leads to a slight change of plans. A different wife.
This new wife of his is going to drive him crazy. Catherine’s always getting herself caught up in danger and he is starting to stress about her. She was supposed to be a good quiet wife who sat still and did what she’s told…ha ha. The connection between John and Catherine doesn’t take long to develop and there were some very sexy times between the couple.
The storyline is based around Catherine and her two sisters fleeing England after their father is accused and killed by the King for supposed treachery and disloyalty. There was also another side story that developed that was interesting.
I liked this story but it dragged and I think the main problem was the lack of dialogue and too much inner monologue and description. Besides these problems the story was interesting. I bought this first in the series for less than $1.00 which was a good buy. I may be interested to go further on in the series at a later date.
