STORY: Rugged highlander Graeme has one thing on his mind—take a stand against the horrible Englishman Lattimer and he will be rewarded with enough money to be set for life. But when his reckless younger brothers take it one step too far and kidnaps a young woman on her way to see Lattimer, Graeme has to intervene. He cannot send the lady back without his kin getting in trouble. And when a damsel this beautiful is dropped into your lap, it’s hard to let her go…
Marjorie should be terrified she’s been captured by highland scoundrels, but it’s hard to live in terror when your captor is a devilishly handsome and sinfully tempting as Graeme is. She cannot stay by his side forever—no matter how her heart may pound at the thought—but Graeme seems to have other plans. This wicked highlander is out to seduce her and doesn’t plan to stop until she’s in his arms…forever…
REVIEW: This is the second tale in No Ordinary Hero series and I was truly looking forward to reading it because it of the heroine who was the sister of the Duke from the first book. I must admit that the premise was what gave me hope that this one might be as good as the first. Plus, this story had even more in common with Outlander book series. And while the romance in Outlander outshone any plot, subplot or setting, for some reason I found the romance in this story lacking in chemistry between the leads.
That said, even though the setting is what kept my interest (because I am a sucker for men in kilts), it is some of the more unique secondary characters who provided some excitement and added plenty of fun to the story.
In the end, I do recommend it because it’s fun and entertaining. Oh, and MEN IN KILTS!
