In Bed with a Highlander by Maya Banks {review}

In Bed with a Highlander

Mass Market Paperback, 352 pages
Published August 30th 2011 by Ballantine Books

Bestselling author Maya Banks’s beguiling new trilogy features three unforgettable brothers risking everything to save their clan and their legacy—and to surrender their hearts to love.

Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his—until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan’s clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn—and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin’s strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons—and embrace a love that means more than revenge and land.

First Line(s): Mairin Stuart knelt on the stone floor beside her pallet and bowed her head in her evening prayer.

Favorite line(s): "There's little decency to good loving" Maddie said. "If 'tis decent, it isn't much fun"!”

My Review: Maya Banks brought my love back for a good Highlander book!
I loved that we didn't have to wait too long for the hot lovin'! It wasn't anything overly graphic, but it's steamy nonetheless, I mean you did get that this is a Highlander novel, right? What more do you need? Ewan has no problem teaching Mairin the arts of love making, wowzer!

I also love that the books in this series were released back to back, no wating for the next book on the hot McCabe brothers.... I adore when authors do this, thanks Maya Banks!

My Rating:Photobucket

You all know the drill by now, if the review is on a book that I read on my own free will and was not asked to review you are getting a short and sweet review. Stay tuned for A Winter's Scandal by Candace Camp which will be a full review. Also stay tuned for an important Dear Reader's question, dying to pick your lovely brains!

Until next time...Happy Reading!

I got one of these books for my mom for Christmas, as she will read anything that looks Scottish, haha. I think the one I got her was "Seduced by a Highlander."
