In The Highlander’s Bed is a class act read. It grips from the first page. Gordon and Constance are powerful characters. I loved the way they match wits and their antagonism when they are at odds. This story practically sent chills all through my body, it is that good. Cathy Maxwell skillfully pens an extraordinary tale that took this reader to paradise and back. The banter is expertly created between Constance and Gordon as well as their sensual scenes as it captivates the reader. The secondary characters, especially Gordon’s men, really add great elements to the storyline. With intrigue, excitement, sensual passion and non-stop action, if you read any book this year, I highly recommend In The Highlander’s Bed. I loved this book!
