Synopses & Reviews
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.
"Third time's the charm for Banks's third McCabe novel (after Sept. 2011's Seduction of a Highland Lass). Caelen, the youngest McCabe brother and the family's last remaining bachelor, is duty-bound to take uppity Rionna McDonald as his bride. Alas, even their wedding night proves a dud when the tomboyish lass imbibes a bit too much ale and passes out cold. This is hardly a propitious omen as the McCabe and McDonald clans join to battle archenemy Duncan Cameron. Even though this marriage of convenience doesn't please either Caelen, still smarting from a former love gone sour, or Rionna, who'd prefer to wear trousers and spar with the men, they must make the best of it for the sake of the clans. Banks nicely balances bedroom and battlefield action as Rionna's tough swordsmanship and Caelen's tender lust propel the couple and the clans toward harmony." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
