Two Feuding Families
Amber Jardin has no taste for the bitter feud started before her father’s banishment. But now that he’s passed, she’s had to return to Scotland and his barbaric people. After her bloodthirsty uncle kidnaps one of the family’s rivals, Amber is in turn captured by Krayne Johnstone, the enemy laird. Despite their enmity, their attraction is immediate—and unfortunate, as Amber has sworn to escape.
One Lusty Temptation
Krayne is amazed at the wildcat’s repeated attempts to flee. He should steel himself against her beguiling ways—yet with time, he is driven more witless with lust. When the ransom exchange fails and Krayne is left with Amber, he finds he cannot tolerate the thought of her with another man—and she cannot tolerate the thought of returning to her uncle’s home.
Will passion and love win out over mistrust and betrayal in time to prevent an all-out war?
To me, this book moved a little bit slowly. There was a lot of attention to detail—something I know all fans of historical romance, including me, really appreciate—but I felt that the nuisances came in place of real heat between the hero and the heroine.
I did enjoy the feisty heroine and thought she had a great sense of humor. The end of the book is very satisfying, although I might have liked more of an apology from the hero.
Do buy this book if you like true to life historical novels that have hot Scottish heroes!
