BEDDING THE ENEMY
Brava, an imprint of Kensington Publishing Corp.
Rating: 4 Cups
Keir McQuade is the new Laird of Red Stone Castle. His family is not known for their easy going ways though his temperament is nothing like his ancestors'.
Helena Knyvett knows that when it comes to her courtly performance, certain expectations are assumed. One being that whatever match her brother feels will get their family furthest is what she will be happiest with.
When Keir goes to court to pledge his allegiance to King James he finds himself disgusted with all the pretentious women and posturing men. In a world where image is everything and deceit is as normal as breathing, Helena is a breath of fresh air. But her brother will not allow his ambitions to be outmaneuvered by a man he considers a barbarian. He will stop at nothing to destroy Keir, even if it means murder.
Intrigue, love, passion, deceit, mystery, and two people destined to be together are intertwined in the pages of Bedding the Enemy. I love the way Helena seems to go from this almost timid mouse to a woman determined to stand against her abusive and controlling brother. Keir is a character who anyone will grow to love as he proves over and over again he is nothing like his barbaric and deceiving family. Mary Wine does not disappoint in her writings and this is just another example of her wonderful talent.
