Product Description

Product Description

Wed by proxy to a baron old enough to be her grandfather, Lady Anne trudges up the gangway of a galleon that will deliver her into the arms of a tyrant. Crestfallen, she believes her disastrous life cannot get worse—until she awakes to the blasts of cannon fire.

Facing certain death, Anne trembles in her stateroom while swords clash and the chilling screams of battle rage on the deck above. When a rugged Highlander kicks in her door, she prays for a swift end.

But Laird Calum MacLeod has a reason for plundering the ship—and it’s not a stunning English lass. With no other choice, he takes Anne to his crumbling keep on the isle of Raasay and sends a letter of ransom to her husband. In time, Anne grows to understand MacLeod’s plight and finds it increasingly difficult to resist Calum’s unsettling charm—until the baron sends a reply agreeing to terms.

Ripped from passion that will be forever seared into their souls, will Anne and Calum risk everything for love?

4.0 out of 5 stars What a title! 12 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Originally published at Rookie Romance.

I won't lie, this book had me at pirate Laird. I wanted to read it, just based on the title. He's a pirate and a highlander Laird, for heaven's sake- is there a better combination?!? It was a very good choice though, because I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

I found both Calum and Anne to be brilliant characters. I immediately empathised with Anne and her undesirable situation. She's very unhappy about marrying a man so much older than her who she doesn't even remember meeting, but she has been raised to be a dutiful daughter and so she goes to meet her fate. I loved Anne's development through the book, she finds her backbone and the strength to choose her own fate.
Calum is a wonderful hero. He can be absolutely adorable sometimes, but he's also a powerful alpha male. He's just such a good man, he's very honourable and is trying to do the best for his people. He is torn between his attraction to Anne and the knowledge that she is married to his nemesis, Lord Wharton, but he (almost) always acts like a true gentleman.
I say almost because sometimes Anne and Calum could not help but give in to their blisteringly hot attraction! I loved their chemistry and the way it develops and becomes more intimate as they spend more time together. They know they shouldn't allow themselves to feel so strongly about each other, but a passion that strong can't be denied.

There's a great, forbidden romance between Calum and Anne but the rest of the plot keeps the momentum building at a a good pace. I found the first half of the book enjoyable, but the second half was even better. You can feel the tension building as Lord Wharton plots his revenge for his wife's kidnapping, whilst Calum and Anne's feelings for each other intensify.

By The Demon Librarian TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This has got to be my favourite début in this genre for quite some time. I simply loved both main characters and their irresistible, star-crossed romance!

You might be forgiven for being unsure about Calum MacLeod at first. He is, after all, a marauding pirate. But is he also ruthless, wicked, depraved, corrupt, and all other words that might usually go with pirate? Absolutely not. He's an exceptionally honourable man just trying to feed his starving clan any way he can.

And what about Anne? Well she was a delightful heroine. Not valued as she should be by her family, we join her just as she's being parcelled off to marry someone old enough to be her grandfather to further her family's fortune and status. Could it be that being attacked by pirates was the best thing that could have ever happened to her? Well, if it means you get a Calum, then <i>my</i> answer to that is yes!

Of course, Calum, being an honourable man, and Anne, being a dutiful daughter, don't see themselves as free to act on their growing feelings, and instead, Calum plans to ransom her off - just as any good pirate would - to the husband she married by proxy. Even though it's becoming increasingly obvious that's not what <i>either</i> of them really want. This all leads to an exiting, action-filled conclusion that was highly entertaining to read.

The relationship that developed between Calum and Anne was absolutely delightful. Not just sensual, but truly romantic. I <i>loved</i> it! If you're a fan of Scottish Romance, then this is absolutely one to add to your TBR. I can't wait to read whatever's next from this author.
