Perfect for fans of Maya Banks and Monica McCarty, Sharon Cullen’s Highland Pride series continues as Scotland’s most reckless smuggler meets his match in a beautiful spitfire who arouses a renewed sense of duty, camaraderie, and passion.
Colin MacLean has always felt like a black sheep—especially after his brothers are slain before his eyes in the Battle of Culloden. A smuggler by trade, Colin makes for an embarrassing chieftain. He can’t even save his friends from their British pursuers without getting himself captured. But before he is martyred by the hangman’s noose, Colin escapes with his cellmate, a brave lad he’s come to admire. It’s only in the depths of the Highlands that Colin discovers the lad is a lass—and a bonnie one at that.
Raised by her older brothers, Maggie Sinclair can drink a pint in no time flat and wield a dagger with the best of ’em. Still, men have always excluded her and women have always shunned her. Colin makes her feel different. His wild spirit and rugged good looks have Maggie reconsidering her less than ladylike ways. For the first time, she’s tempted to put on a gown, just to see how Colin would react. She can only imagine what might happen next: a kiss . . . a touch . . . and perhaps enough sultry heat to melt a cold Highland night.
This is another really good romance from Sharon Cullen. I have yet to be disappointed with her books. This is book #2 in her Highland Pride Series and although there are carryover characters from book #1 this book does well as a standalone.
The characters are well developed and I found myself in love with them from the start. The storyline is very well thought out.
Our Heroine, Lady Margaret Sinclair (Maggie) is the perpetual Tomboy having been brought up by her brother and taught to fight and act like a lad. Our Hero, Colin MacLean is the last one standing of the MacLean brothers having spent his life portrayed as the family disappointment. These two are just meant to be together.
This book is not to be missed.
I gave it a 4.75 star rating.
I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lisa Mondello, a new erotic new adult contemporary series SUMMER HOUSE SERIES.
MOMENT IN TIME
This summer is all about living. Nothing else! Jenna Traynor has been given her life back. After two years of being in limbo, missing out on college life, she has a second chance. Spending the summer working on Nantucket Island is a good place to start life again. Hot guys everywhere, fun times at the clubs, long walks on the beach and beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the ocean from her back porch. She has a lot of living to make up for. And then she met Bobby…
On leave from the military, Bobby Callahan needs one thing: a quiet beach to run and train so his leg will get strong enough for him to return to his post. For the past three years the only thing that made him get out of bed was the military. He’d joined the service to get away from sympathetic eyes and worried faces. He didn’t count on meeting a girl like Jenna whose thirst for life made him break out of the walls he’d so carefully constructed around himself. And once he realized she had his heart, he knew he never wanted to let her go. And then fate stepped in…
This series is a New Adult College Romance series that contains sexual situations that are graphic and explicit and not intended for readers under 18 years old.
“If I leave you, it’ll kill me. If I lose you… It’s not going to matter anymore. I can’t go through that again. So it’s not happening.”
I realize he’s not talking about just leaving me to deal with this illness all by myself like Jared did. He’s talking about my death, something I have tried for two years to pretend wasn’t going to happen. And the pain he feels isn’t just for me. It’s for Donna and Wyatt.
“You know, Bobby, it’s inevitable.”
“I don’t want to hear—”
“We’re going to end,” I say, drowning out his protest. “You’re going back into the military and I’m going to college. And if not college, then…whatever life has in store for me if this lump isn’t anything to worry about. But the ending…we sort of knew that, didn’t we?”
The flash of hurt that crosses his face levels me. Then his jaw tightens and I’m confused by the hard look he gives me.
“Don’t do that.”
“Don’t pretend that what’s been between us is just some freaking summer fling. It’s not. It may have started that way, but it’s not that. Do you hear me?”
I can feel the emotion I’ve held back rise in my chest and bubble up my throat until it’s choking me and I can’t breathe. When I open my mouth to speak, a small sob escapes and my lips tremble. “I can’t do this to you.”
“I can’t do this without you,” he says. “I want this moment, even if it’s awful, Jenna. No matter how much time we have together, I want it. Even if it kills us both in the end. I’m not running away from you. Not now. Not ever.” He chuckles though I can hear the emotion he’s fighting back. “I just dare you to try to keep me away.”
