( Campbell Trilogy #1 )
by Monica McCarty
The ruthless enforcer of Scotland’s most powerful clan, Jamie Campbell will use any means necessary to vanquish lawlessness and unrest among the feuding Highland clans. Seduction is a game as easily played as subterfuge, but when Jamie poses a as suitor to a rival clan’s daughter in order to expose treason, the line between duty and pleasure is suddenly blurred. Ebony-haired, ruby-lipped Caitrina Lamont defies him, denies him, and arouses him like no other woman.
Caitrina has no intention of forsaking her beloved father and doting brothers for a husband–especially a hated Campbell. But Jamie’s raw, sensual strength and searing kiss melt her resistance. When her idyllic world is shattered, Caitrina’s only hope to save her clan lies in the arms of Jamie Campbell, the enemy she holds accountable for its ruin. Can their tenuous truce, born in the velvet darkness of passionate nights, forge a love as strong as the sword that rules the Highlands?
First Line (s): Catrina Lamont peered into the looking glass as the young maid pinned the last section of lace ruff in place behind her neck.
My Review: Monica McCarty knows how to write a Highland romance novel. This is the first book in the Campbell Trilogy. I adored Jamie, he was everything you want your Highlander to be. Strong willed, mysterious and well hot ( and he even has a witty sense of humor, which is not something you normally see in McCarty heros)! Catrina was a bit harder to like, she was hardheaded and a bit cold. I found myself having a very hard time liking her or even feeling sorry for her. But I would change places with her in a heartbeat to have Jamie be longing to spend his nights with me! Can I get a wit woo and an Amen??
If your looking for a fast steamy and amusing read than this is a good choice!
My Rating: 4 stars
Until next time...
