Publisher’s Description:

A Dutiful Daughter No More

When Mary Elizabeth Rose’s father marries a much younger lass in hopes of siring a male heir, Mary sees her chance to escape her role as his chatelaine, but fears his next step will be to betroth her to a stranger. She has a different future in mind—with a sometimes charming, sometimes difficult and arrogant wounded Highlander.

He Owes Her His Life

Cameron Sutherland is not too delirious to recognize Mary Rose is the first woman he could seriously consider taking as his bride. He’d like nothing better than to spend years repaying the debt he owes his angel of mercy for taking him in and saving his life. First, he must convince her to defy her father one last time.

Will They Put Love Before Duty?

For Mary, Cameron has become the man whose every smile has the power to bring her to her knees. But he is as duty-bound as she is, and responsibility calls him back to Sutherland, where she fears he will stay, forgetting her and all they’ve shared. With another powerful clan’s interests at stake, Cameron’s return sets events in motion that will have life-changing consequences for the woman he can’t forget.

My Thoughts:

This is another engrossing and well written addition to this series. I have read only the novella and this one, but both are everything I have come to expect from a Willa Blair story.
I was entranced by our hero and heroine from the time that Cameron became sensible enough to recognize his feelings that were developing for Mary.
I wasn’t fond of her father or his penchant for seeming to ignore all Mary had to say.
He seemingly ignores his daughter’s feelings, but in the end maybe he was listening after all.
I gave this title 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames.
Mary and Cameron’s intimacy was held off until after they hand fasted and these scenes were mildly intimate and rather sweet.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title after promising to participate in a blog tour for this title.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Meet the Rose sisters in HIS HIGHLAND ROSE, the prequel to my His Highland Heart series. 

Iain Brodie is a fierce warrior and passionate lover, but to prove he’s responsible enough to follow his ailing father as the clan’s chief, he must give up the lasses and find a bride—quickly. He doesn’t expect to fall for any of the Rose chief’s three daughters, but he can’t get one out of his mind—or heart—even when he discovers she is not who she claims to be.

Skilled rider and archer Annie Rose values her freedom. She doesn’t want to be anyone’s bride, not even deliciously and annoyingly sexy Iain Brodie’s. But her father wants an alliance with Iain’s clan and he’s chosen her to forge it. Unaware she could be sealing the fate she desperately wants to avoid, Annie falls under Iain’s seductive spell at the spring known in old tales as the fairy pool.

But when her father suddenly decides against their match, Annie discovers the love she never expected to find—with Iain. To win her, Iain must risk losing everything he values—the clan he was born to lead and even Annie, the woman he sees for who she truly is—his only love.

Publisher’s Description:

Fleeing the English army that murdered her family before her eyes, Anna Braxton rescues two young women, kidnapped by a barbaric Highland clan only to find herself unjustly imprisoned by the clan she aided. Disgusted by her treatment, she counters their belated offer of friendship with anger and distrust. But she does not count on the unexpected effect the laird’s son has on her heart.
Duncan MacGregor does not understand his da’s command to imprison the young woman who saved his sister’s life. He is more than intrigued with Anna’s skill with a bow and sword–in fact, he is fascinated by everything about her, in spite of her lack of feminine wiles. Straightforward and with a deep-seated sense of honor, Anna Braxton disrupts his entire notion of a suitable woman.
Trained as a warrior and unwilling to be any man’s chattel, Anna shuns the idea of marriage–until Duncan coaxes her into a world of acceptance and passion she never knew existed. He wants her as his wife. She will agree, but only on her own terms–conditions Duncan is not sure he can accept.

Do you like a colorful bit of history with your romance? In this first book showcasing strong heroines, travel the Silk Road during the 9th Crusade to find the authenticity for Anna’s skills. Her father, awarded a small barony in the Scottish/English borderlands for valor in a campaign against Tripoli, brings home with him a Chinese body guard who repays the baron’s kindness by teaching his son and daughter a wealth of Far Eastern skills in survival, weaponry, hand-to-hand combat, and healing.

HIGHLAND ESCAPE is an engaging storyline; a fast paced, lively and enjoyable read with an independent, strong willed, inspiring heroine, and a swoon worthy hero who has eyes only for the Lady Braxton. . . . The premise is imaginative; the characters a unique mix of amusing, evil, and tragic; the romance intimate and heartwarming…

Publisher’s Description:

Rob Joleigh has been burned by Christmas too many times. He takes his freelance writing career seriously and his claim to fame happens to be de-bunking Christmas festivities in towns across America. When he lands in South Pole, Alaska, he has one plan in mind…to get to the bottom of the whole ‘Backwards Christmas’ idea and spoil the holiday for as many people as possible.

Holly Howard knows there’s more to life than leading Backwards Christmas tours in South Pole, but she’s happy with her job, town, and friends. The only thing missing is someone to share it all with, but in a small town, it’s hard to meet new people. When a handsome writer comes into town, she’s intrigued, and hopeful that he could be that person. But she has no idea he’s the famous “Jolly Robber.”

It’s not just any Backwards Christmas in South Pole, Alaska as the backwards celebrations rage and the town comes together to show their spirit in full force!

Temptation — it’s all around us.
My hardest decision: give into that forbidden desire, or resist all the unrelenting urges inside of me.

She wasn’t mine to take, but I reached out and took her like that forbidden apple in the garden she belongs in.
She’s my angel.
She was put on this earth for the devil himself.
And I’m not strong enough to resist her.

She’s off limits… forbidden… and all mine.

But I know it’s only a matter of time before the hell that is my life engulfs us both with its wicked flame.
