Rating: 4 Cups
Twice she has been stood up at the altar for another woman. While Rionna McDonald might not have loved either one of the men, she liked them a lot better than the man who has finally stood up to become her husband.
Caelen McCabe knew from the beginning Rionna was going to be trouble. From the first moment he saw her in her manly garb, swinging a sword like a valiant warrior, Caelen’s body has lusted after the sassy wench.
The wedding might have gone off without a hitch, but Rionna and Caelen have a long way to go to reach the harmony they both so desperately crave. The McDonald clan does not trust Caelen and his ways, so they try to thwart him at every turn. As he tries time and again to get a handle on the uprising, Caelen realizes he has an even more important matter he needs to deal with. Taming his wild wife and turning her into the biddable woman he thinks he wants.
Never Love a Highlander is one of those books that will keep you reading. I love the interaction between Rionna and Caelen. It is so powerful I could feel the sexual tension each had coming off of them when the other was near. Add in the utter strength Rionna has when facing down adversaries and you cannot go wrong with this tale. While the plot includes two clans being linked together to stop a war, it is one of two lovers that really gets the pages steamy in this historical tale by Maya Banks.
