SEDUCING THE HIGHLANDER contains three stories featuring a trio of sexy Scots and their ladies.
Seducing Ian: Lady Leanna Arlington has been captured by Ian McCray. You would think the lady would be upset but she is delighted by this event. It saves her from an unwanted marriage.
This was a great beginning story. Leanna and Ian make a dynamic couple. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline especially how Leanna is not at all upset at being Ian’s prisoner. While the sexual tension is set on high and the action that follows is sizzling, it is the emotions that the lead couple experiences that readers will love.
Seducing Robbie: Julia Cameron exchanges her wealth for protection. Robbie McCray is in need of money so the agreement is made and a marriage is arranged.
From past experience, it is usually the middle story that is a weak link in a trilogy but this is not the case for Seducing Robbie. Julia and Robbie are strong characters who will win many fans. The beginning of their relationship isn’t the most romantic but comes across as very honest and true especially of the time period when nobility didn’t marry for love. It was great to see the growth of their relationship and it didn’t hurt that they were sexually compatible. There is a murder mystery storyline which is resolved at the end and it introduces the main character of the third story.
Seducing Aidan: Lady Gillian Lorin is saved by Aidan Cameron. Upon finding out to whom she is betrothed to, Adain decides to save her from a fate worse than death.
Aidan is a man recovering from a broken heart. He believes that he is still in love with Julia but Gillian stirs something that he can’t quite pinpoint. Aidan comes across as a much stronger character than Gillian. To this reader, he feels more real perhaps because we know more about him since he was introduced in Seducing Robbie. However, they were still very enjoyable as a couple.
SEDUCING THE HIGHLANDER features three entertaining stories which fans of historical romances will enjoy. I have always enjoyed Ms. Wildes e-books and her print books are just as good.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
