Desiring the Highlander (Scottish Highlander, Bk 3)
Desiring the Highlander - Scottish Highlander, Bk 3 Author:Michele Sinclair Set in the early 14th century Scottish Highlands, Desiring a Highlander, is the story of the third McTiernay brother, Cole, who saves Ellenor Howell, an Englishwoman haunted by a horrible mistake, from a lonely life, only to realize it is she who needs to rescue him. — Ellenor Howell’s perfect world unraveled in one terrifying night and she... more » vows to piece together a new future, one that is safe and far from the reach of any man. Attempts to marry her off have failed and she is weeks away from fleeing England and her nightmares, when a hulking giant arrives, determined to take her to his brother’s home.
With each ploy she devises to escape her captor, the infuriating Highlander is one step ahead, and her desire to leave the safety of his arms wanes. For inexplicably, whenever the man is around, her fear of being touched disappears and she remembers what is like to be wild and carefree. She wants her freedom, but with each minute that passes in the scowling Highlander’s presence, Ellenor begins to realize that what she really wants is the one thing she can’t have…his heart.
Cole has good reason to despise Ellenor Howell. She is not only English and someone he is honor bound to hate, but she is proud of it. She is also aggravating, stubborn, and enjoys challenging everything he says or does. It should have made it simple for him to stay away.
Instead, he finds himself drawn to her, as she continually understands him in ways no one else does. But as he helps free her from the memories of her past, his desire for the tawny-haired beauty grows, and he rediscovers pieces of his soul he thought forever dead.
As their time together draws to an end, he must make a choice…forsake a solemn promise he made long ago committing him to a solitary life, or make a new one to his sworn enemy who has the power to open his heart and heal his wounds with love.« less
This book was great from beginning to end. Absolutely hysterical and yet touching in many many sections. The chemistry between Cole and Ellenor was both steamy and yet believable. Ellenor is strong and smart with just a touch of sass, which makes her perfect for Cole. Strong and tortured, Cole captured me totally from page one. I couldn't put it down and would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance, regardless of preferred genre.
March 19 2010 This was a fabulous book. Great characters. The female was not whiney or wimpy she knew what she wanted and went after it, uh, him. He had a totured past, he was handsome, strong and sexy what more could a girl ask for. The book had a great story no unnecessary filler in the middle to drag it out it was a very fast read. I like that characters from the 1st book made an appearance it makes the books feel more connected. I also like that you get some insight into a couple of the younger brothers. (6 brothers in total) This was by far the best book of the three.
The only bad thing I could say is now I have to impatiently wait for the 4th book to be released.
