Product Description
The sweeping Scottish saga that began in Laurin Wittig’s novel Charming the Shrew continues in the romantic sequel.

After his eldest brother pays the ultimate price for plotting against the king, Ailig MacLeod returns to Castle Assynt with a heavy heart. On the king’s orders, Ailig’s father must forfeit the title of clan chief in favor of his youngest son or the entire clan will be set to fire and sword.

But before Ailig can deliver his message, he encounters the beautiful Morainn MacRailt, a young widow whose solitary life in her cottage down the glen, away from the boisterous castle, garners unwanted attention from men looking for a wife. Ailig is taken by her quiet confidence and the powerful connection he feels between them, but his duty lies at Castle Assynt where a series of crises have arisen in the wake of his brother’s death and his sister's abrupt departure.

Determined to bring his clan to order, but wary of whom to trust, Ailig makes a fateful decision: he calls on Morainn to serve as chatelaine, offering her the protection of life inside the castle in return for overseeing the stronghold. Clever Morainn quickly becomes one of his most important advisors, and as the trust between them grows, so does an undeniable passion. Together they seek to restore the MacLeod clan’s legacy, rebuild Castle Assynt—and discover a love unlike any they ever imagined.


Daring the Highlander, Reviewed by Alexis Harrington

Ailig MacLeod feels as if the weight of the world rests on his shoulders, and indeed, he's carrying the weight of his world. He's come home to Assynt Castle, a month after leaving with his four elder brothers to find his sister. He is the only one returning, and he's bringing bad news with him: his sister has run off to marry a man of her own choosing rather than be shackled to loveless marriage with the clan chief she'd been promised to, his brothers have angered King Robert the Bruce, and worst of all, the king has ordered that Ailig take his father's place as Leod Clan chief. In all, Ailig's responsibilities are enough to crush a lesser man.

Morainn MacRailt is a shy but strong-willed young widow who keeps herself on the hem of the village. She knows her first marriage was a mistake, considers herself lucky to be out of it, and she has no desire to repeat the experience.

When faced with trying to put to rights the run-down Assynt Castle, Ailig engages Morainn's assistance, the spark between them is undeniable, and from there grows trust, admiration and respect. Though she has sworn to maintain her independence, she realizes that Ailig is searching for an equal partner, not chattel to be ordered around. And he finds that partner in her.

Laurin Wittig has the rare talent for transporting the reader right to the heart of the action. I felt like an observer with a front-row seat as I read about the craggy, windblown Highlands and the crowded, cold Assynt Castle. The growing love and heat between the Ailig and Morainn was sensual and rooted in the most powerful of aphrodisiacs—mutual respect, intimacy, and genuine love.

Alexis Harrington is the author of 12 romance novels including Home By Morning, and Homeward Hearts.

More About the Author

Laurin Wittig, at age 10, heard the skirl of a bagpipe, saw a clan chieftain dance in his kilt, and began to learn about the history of her family's clan, the MacGregors. She was hooked. When she discovered Scottish romances, she knew she had to write one, so she packed her bags, left her family at home (for a week) and hied herself off to the auld country to be inspired, er, do research. Now she lives in Virginia with her husband (who refuses, under any circumstances, to EVER wear a kilt), two kids, and Anna the Eskie, but she often imagines herself high upon a ben in Scotland.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable. 13 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Daring the Highlander by Laurin Wittig is a short, light Highlander romance. This is the second book in the series, ( which I was unaware of when I checked it out of the kindle library),copyrighted in 2005, and I will now go back and read the first one. This is the story of the Macleod Clan. Ailig has returned home alone after leaving with his four older brothers to find his runaway sister. The problem was that his sister was promised to another clan, but ran away and married another man. Ailig's older brother was in league with his sister's intended and conspired to kill the king. Now, Ailig has to return home and inform his father of these happenings and the king's commands.
Moriann, was widowed and still pretended to be in mourning. Her heart had been broken by her husband, and she was really sad when he died, but was no longer in mourning. She just wanted to be left alone to live her life in peace. She swore she would never marry again.
But, with the clan's sister gone from the castle she is asked to get the kitchen back in running order. This puts her in the castle and in contact with Ailig, who falls instantly in love with her.
Ailig is a warrior, but not over the top alpha male. Morainn is independent, but slowly learns to open her heart, even if there is great risk of getting hurt. A nice happy ending. Highly recommend

A gripping story, probably more imaginative than authentic. A flavour of what might have been. Interesting choice of words to give atmosphere.
