STORY: The dawning of desire…
1806, Scotland: Wild, reckless Callum MacCreath is in no hurry to become someone’s husband. But when his responsible, steady older brother Ian announces his engagement to their childhood friend Rebecca, Callum makes a startling discovery: he wants the lovely young lass for himself. But it’s too late, and when Ian banishes him for his duplicity, he’s only too happy to leave Scotland forever…
…is delicious and dangerous.
1816: Marrying Ian was the practical, logical thing for Becca to do. But once Callum sailed away to America, she missed his rakish charm and lust for life. Now, ten years later, Becca is a widow when a much-changed Callum returns to his Scottish homeland. Will he remember their spirited, fiery connection, or does he blame her for his brother’s unexpected death? This time neither of them can deny their scorching attraction, but will their hearts be burned in the blazing heat of scandal?
REVIEW: With this story No Ordinary Hero series ends and it looks like the author saved the best story for last.
Reading the blurb, I had doubts about the story in which a brother in law falls for his brother’s widow, even though he may have loved her first. However, as the story progressed and I got to know more of the background to them and their past, I began to understand them and by the end I was truly in their corner.
As usual, I loved the setting, but once more it’s all the characters that make this story fun to read.
If you’re looking for a solid, well written romance with plenty of action and a bit of mystery, this one will fill the bill.
