Book Summary

Maya Banks, the New York Times bestselling author of erotic romance, romantic suspense, and contemporary romance, has captivated readers with her steamy Scottish historical novels, perfect for fans of Julie Garwood. In Never Love a Highlander, the youngest McCabe brother uses sword and seduction to save his clan—and seal his heart.
Caelen McCabe’s young, reckless heart nearly destroyed his clan. Now, putting family loyalty above all else, he steps up to marry his older brother’s jilted bride and salvage the uneasy alliance between two clans. While beautiful Rionna McDonald is a fit wife for any man, Caelen trusts no woman, especially not this sweet temptress who torments him with white-hot longing.

As the sacrificial lamb in her father’s power game, Rionna will do her duty but vows to protect her heart and her pride from humiliation. Despite everything, though, the heat in Caelen’s touch melts her defenses, and she craves the sensual delights of a husband who guards his emotions as fiercely as his clan. But when the ultimate battle for the McCabe legacy is upon them, Rionna’s true warrior spirit emerges. She will risk the wrath of her father, the fury of her enemies, and her life to prove to Caelen that his wife’s love is too precious to lose.

My Review
This book had charm. What I loved most about it was each character. They were brought to life in a believable way for the time period and circumstance.

I loved Rionna with her feistiness yet vulnerability. She proved interesting to watch so to speak as the pages turned while a narrator brought her to life.
I loved Caelen. He was the perfect mix of strong yet understanding. He was an alpha male with a soft side. And the story had the right mix of romance, action and steamy scenes I was never left wanting.  My only problem which was a personal one was that I didn’t pay attention that this was the third book. From what I can tell, each book could be read and enjoyed as a standalone. But there was certainly some things I missed but was given enough information where I was never lost in the story. So that’s not a knock on the author. My bad.

Audio Review
Kirsten Potter did a good job with the narration. She kept the characters straight and each was easily identifiable. I’ll listen to another book with her narration.

Overall, if you like historical romances especially the Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning, you will enjoy this one.
