Historical Romance, (Highland)
Rating: 4 Cups
Lady Arabella Catriona Wyndmere is English and a capable horse-woman. Her aunt has chosen her a suitor to wed, someone she knows nothing about. After stumbling upon Connal, her plans may change.
Laird Connal MacRae has a choice of the women he wishes to be with. The moment he sees Arabella, he instantly feels a strong connection. He realizes she is to wed his brother, but if he has his way that will never happen.
The moment Arabella sets her gaze upon Connal, she forgets her aunt has already chosen her a suitor to marry. Yet the one fact she would like to learn is, if Connal knows anything about her suitor, and if so she wishes he would enlighten her a bit about him. Connal knows that Kellan is not fit to be wed to Arabella. He does not want his brother to touch the captivating, Arabella. The only thing that disturbs Connal about Arabella is the fact she continues to repeat herself, and she makes him barmy. Nonetheless, he cannot get the woman from underneath his skin. He desperately wants her in his life, and will do anything, even if he has to marry her before he tells anyone else.
Superstitions Desires depicts lovely scenery and strong characterization that sweeps the reader into a tightly written story of intrigue, danger, betrayal and deep romance. I could actually feel the passion that immediately stirs when Arabella and Connal meet each other. I must say the way Kellan is portrayed; he definitely plays a good villain. Lisa M. Campbell weaves an interesting story that flows well, and keeps one turning the pages. She knows how to craft just the right amount of tension, romance, and hidden desire to keep the pages turning in this moving read.
