Seduction of a Highland Lass - By: Maya Banks

Seduction of a Highland Lass (McCabe Trilogy #2)
by: Maya Banks

5 of 5 stars

Fiercely loyal to his elder brother, Alaric McCabe leads his clan in the fight for their birthright. Now he is prepared to wed for duty, as well. But on his way to claim the hand of Rionna McDonald, daughter of a neighboring chieftain, he is ambushed and left for dead. Miraculously, his life is saved by the soft touch of a Highland angel, a courageous beauty who will put to the test his fealty to his clan, his honor, and his deepest desires.

An outcast from her own clan, Keeley McDonald was betrayed by those she loved and trusted. When the wounded warrior falls from his horse, she is drawn to his strong, lean body. The wicked glint in his green eyes ignites a passion that will follow them back to Alaric’s keep, where their forbidden love draws them deeper into the pleasures of the flesh. But as conspiracy and danger circle closer, Alaric must make an impossible choice: Will he betray his blood ties for the woman he loves?

Hold your horses, bookworms! Because this is GOOD! I swear, this series are getting better and better. The second book and I'm not disappoint. I totally love romance novels and I can tell you that this DO have romance, drama, blood, loyalty and, yeah, sex scenes, but they are not that crude. The book still for 18 or over, so good luck with that and happy birthday.

In the first book, we found the love story between Mairin McCabe nee Stuart and Ewan McCabe. Now, in this book, we find the love story, almost tragic, of Ewan's brother, Alaric McCabe, and a cast away lass and healer, Keely McDonald (for that perioid of time, you see she became a McCabe). Spoilers apart... The begining is a little cliche, but oh for the love of God, how much I love the cliche things. Alaric is in his way to McDonald's keep (long story short, he gave his word to marry the Laird's daughter, just for power and things about war, yadda yadda) and is ambused by Cameron's soldiers and almost murdered. His horse lead him to Keely cottage and she "saves" him. He thinks that she is his angel and she thinks that he is her warrior. I'm telling you, both things are very acurate. They keep protecting each other, no matter how forbidden is their love. He must marry McDonald's daughter, but he don't want to. Will he marry the woman he doesn't love? Will Keely do somthing to keep her warrior by her side?

You will now it... if you read the book! *winks*
