Book Description

2 Jun 2011 Return of the Highlanders (Book 1)

After years of fighting abroad, Ian MacDonald comes home to find his clan in peril. To save his kin, he must right the wrongs from his past . . . and claim the bride he's long resisted.

As a young lass, Sìleas depended on Ian to play her knight in shining armour. But when his rescue attempt compromised her virtue, Ian was forced to marry against his wishes. Five years later, Sìleas has grown from an awkward girl into an independent beauty who knows she deserves better than the reluctant husband who preferred war to his wife. Now this devilishly handsome Highlander is finally falling in love. He wants a second chance with Sìleas - and he won't take no for an answer.

4.0 out of 5 stars really enjoyed 10 Jun 2011
By Sian Louise VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I received a copy of this to review.
It was a first for me from this author and I have to say I really enjoyed it.
I am not usually a fan of the scottish historical romance books because of the language but I quite liked it in this fact I couldnt help but do a scottish accent in my head as I was reading this(luckily not out loud, because noone wants to hear me attempt it lol).
I really loved the characters of Ian and Sileas and they were definately well suited, my only complaint is that they seemed to sort their problems out quickly, I would have liked for their story to have been drawn out a bit more, but there was a lot going on in the book and the storyline so I can understand why it wasnt.

It was very well written and was very enjoyable and easy to read and if you enjoy authors such as Hannah Howell, Sabrina Jeffries then I would recommend this book and author.
This was a great start to a series and I really look forward to reading the next book The Sinner and all of the others regarding his cousins :)
It will not be the last book I read from this author.
