About This Book

An Arranged Marriage…

“Sensual and humorous, a winning combination that everyone can enjoy.” ~ Hannah Howell

Makenna Dunstan has never needed a man’s protection before. But when her father’s failing health places the safety of the clan in her hands, she has no choice but to marry Colin McTiernay. Fearing the emotions Colin awakens within her, she finds herself succumbing too easily to his lingering kisses and warm caresses. Yet she wonders if she can truly trust this highlander who is quickly stealing her heart…

Ignites An Insatiable Desire…

littleSwordLeftA highlander from birth, Colin McTiernay knows the Dunstan clan dislikes him, especially the laird’s youngest daughter. But he is determined to save the lowlanders from their enemies even if that means marrying the willful and impetuous Makenna. Taming this fierce tigress will be a challenge that Colin is confident he can meet by seducing Makenna–and tantalizing her with a passion that will only leave her begging for more…

littleSwordLeftTo Wed a Highlander, focuses on the second McTiernay brother, Colin, who is forced to marry his brazen, impetuous sister-in-law, Makenna, in order to protect the clan of his beloved, gentle dead wife.

Pride and unfamiliar desire guides much of their initial interactions
as each wrestle with unexpected and intense feelings for the other.

Conor and Laurel (from The Highlander’s Bride) come back in this story and add to the lively interplay plaguing the Dunstan keep as Colin and Makenna discover the joy of their hidden, unknown passions.

Rating: 10 out of 10! “The story unfolds wonderfully. Excellent secondary characters will make you smile. Ahh, a jealous past suitor of Makenna is also starting mischief along with many of Colin’s clan members. There is love, hate, betrayal, pride, honor…” ~ Reviewed by Kiesha.

A Romance Review

Rating: 4-1/2 out of 5. “Colin MacTiernay was the brother briefly mentioned in the first story that we never really got a chance to meet. Pity, for he is extremely interesting. Complex in his wants, needs and desires, Colin is truly an enigma for a man of his time. He can be faithfully devoted to a wife (Deirdre) who spurned his physical love, and keep loyal to a prejudiced clan who really doesn’t want him as their laird. Makenna is also an oddity for the time period. She trains as a man would, building a strong body and mind, and doesn’t whimper about when new challenges are placed in front of her, but meets them head on and prevails. To Wed a Highlander is a refreshing take on the traditional Scottish Medieval romance.” ~ Reviewed by Bonnie.
