Description

Because of her father's irresponsible gambling habits, Sophia MacFarlane has just lost her house and the diamonds she inherited from her deceased mother to Dougal MacLean. Determined to regain ownership, Sophia pulls out all the stops. First, she sends her father away temporarily, so she can disguise her identity and claim that she also won the house in a gambling wager. Next, she sets about un- polishing the manor, putting damp sheets on the bed, and dusting the walls with ash. When Dougal arrives, he is not only shocked at the estate's ramshackle appearance; he is also stunned by the beauty of Sophia, who seduces Dougal into a game of high stakes. If she beats him at a game of Chance, she gets the house. If she loses, he gets...her "virtue." And when their game ends, Dougal and Sophia discover that they've also been gambling on love.show more

Our customer reviews

It has been a while since I read a highlander romance, and I'm really happy I read To Catch a Highlander because I practically loved it. Dougal is the typical alpha male. He won a house from Sophia's father at a gambling game and is decided to claim it. But Sophia and her father are doing everything to make him leave and leave their house alone. Sophia is a beauty, and her life is basically spending time with her father. She's not happy when learning her father lost not only their house, but also her mother's jewels. But she has a plan, trick Dougal into a gambling game where she can win the house...and maybe a few kisses. I love these kind of romance where the sexual tension of the protagonists is everything. Dougal and Sophia were attracted since the moment they met and they did anything to spend time alone and do naughty things. I wasn't expecting to find Dougal's sister and her husband in this story, but it was a nice addition. Overall, To Catch a Highlander is one of my favorites books of the MacLean Curse series. It's the perfect romance to read in just one afternoon, I liked both protagonists and they always managed to trick themselves in naughty situations.show more
