Title: In Bed with a Highlander
Series: McCabe Trilogy bk 1
Author: Maya Banks
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.
Though 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 finds her craving 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.
When I started reading this book I wasn’t sure what to expect. I love Maya which is why I wanted to read it but I am really picky about my highlander. I decided to trust Maya and her vision for her characters. As I started reading I began to feel like I was reading a Julie Garwood book, which I have to say I wasn’t disappointed in as I love her.
Marin has been in hiding for years because of the inheritance that her father gave her. Every man in Scotland wants it. When the worst man in Scotland finds her and forces her from her hiding place, she immediately begins plotting her escape. When an innocent who belongs to the man that has vowed to kill her captor is found and taken with her as a hostage to his keep she knows that escape is their only option.
When Marin ends up in the hands of Ewan McCabe he vows to protect her anyway he can in repayment of saving his son. His solution to both of their problems is marriage.
As I said earlier I am extremely picky when it comes to my historicals. With that being said I loved every single page in this book. There was absolutely nothing that I didn’t love. The romance between Marin and Ewan is at times very sweet and others very intense as they are both very stubborn people.
If you love Julie Garwood’s historicals then you will absolutely love this book. I know that I did.
