Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she's been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown's most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal--and a bold rescue--land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.
As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he's not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire...and desperate for more. With Davina's secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can't live without.
These books are usually trashy smutty fun. To be quite honest, if I see a half-nekkid man on the cover with ripply abs and a big ole phallic sword jutting out, I think...hmm...no plot. This book definitely challenged that notion. This is really a honest case of the old standard, "don't judge a book by it's cover," because yeah..don't do that. This book is good! There is a LOT of plot and a LOT of good stuff. Front to back, it's full of fun. The characters are interesting and real. The steamy scenes are steamy without being well...too smutty (yes there is such a thing!)
This book was so much fun to read! Just the right amount of action, romance, and naughty bits ;)
I give it a 4.5/5! :)
