Description

"Readers can always count on Mason for fast-paced, exciting adventures with detailed historical backdrops that showcase sizzling passion and steamy love scenes."--RT Book Reviews ABDUCTION Never had Elspeth Stewart imagined her wedding would be interrupted by a dark-haired stranger charging in on a black stallion, scooping her into his arms, and carrying her off across the wild Scottish highlands. Pressed against his hard chest and nestled between his strong thighs, she ought to have feared for her life. But her captor silenced all protests with a soul-searing kiss, giving Elspeth a glimpse of the pain behind his passion--a pain only she could ease. OBSESSION "Mad Rob" MacLaren thought stealing his rival's bride-to-be was the perfect revenge. But Rob never reckoned that this beautiful, innocent lass would awaken the part of him he thought dead and buried with his wife. Against all reason, he longed to introduce the luscious Elspeth to the pleasures of the flesh, to make her his, and only his, forever. With two clans against them burning for battle, they must find a way to join together--body, breath, and soul. Or both will be made to pay for the... SINS OF THE HIGHLANDERshow more

Our customer reviews

The story begins rather surprisingly: Elspeth is about to marry Lachlan Drummond, a man she doesn't knows, she has never see or meet for the needs of strategic and financial parties involved. However, when imposing these wishes, she is suddenly taken hostage by ''Mad'' Rob seeking retribution for the kidnapping and death of his wife. From this point the story becomes, still continues to be interesting and exciting! I was impressed by the book's contents: the expressions, the myths and legends from Scotland, the rituals practiced by the people at this time, we believe it! I must admit, it wasn't very difficult to convince me: A woman who is caught in an unwanted marriage, a husband to whom you want death, a sexy, intelligent, mysterious and troubled kidnapper, adding the Scotland background, the time and just enough supernatural behaviour to make the perfect recipe for a success story! As soon as Lady Elspeth is kidnapped, the action begins the intrigue about what really happened with Rob's wife, encounter of new characters and sequence of events takes place naturally. The authors have done their research on myths and legends of this specific time. The writing style is fluid and impeccable. Whenever I put the book aside, images of this story came to me naturally and my mind was fulfilled with naughty thoughts! I thought about it constantly! Apparently, it's a good sign when a book or more precisely the story is stuck into your heads for days. It was good, original and well built! The characters are very interesting: Elspeth is not the spoiled kind of girl who is just good at whining. Her head is on her shoulders, heart in the hand and I like reading about a heroine who seems to know what is good for her, even though towards the end of the novel she seems to take funny decisions... Rob is the perfect gentleman, attractive, charming ... but he's troubled by the death of his wife and I love the tortured kind of male characters. Lachlan is the ''bad boy'' character in the book. He seems to want to marry Elspeth only for the benefits it will bring to him. Of course, at that time, they were often arranged marriages and it was the norm! Lachlan plays his role to perfection as a man greedy for power and wealth, is doing very little for the happiness and security of his future wife! I love to hate him!show more
