My Thoughts 

Every so often I love a short, engaging (modified) bodice ripper of a book. 

When I was younger, I didn't get the appeal of this type of story at all, and now I really find myself enjoying them. 

The fourth of five brothers, Drostan is determined to remain a bachelor and never sire a child, hopefully not worsening the curse on his clan. Lia (aka Amelia) is on the run from her cold, cruel older brother and bad memories, determined not to allow her brother to marry her off to a man of his political choosing. 

Aware of the curse, but unaware of the facts behind the death of her other brother, Lia decides to seek revenge on the clan to win favor with her brother. 

A meeting fraught with danger, and numerous interactions later, Lia is forced to recognize that there might not be a need for revenge, but for the pair to stay together. 

While I would have liked to see more chemistry between the two, I still found this an easy and enjoyable read.

Looking forward to the final book of the series.

Drostan Macquarie, the fierce battle-hardened Highlander, was still a young lad when his father first warned him of the ancient curse on the Macquarie clan. Should any of our kin sire a bastard, the entire clan will be cursed to die out. Drostan vowed then to live his life alone, far from the reach of the curse. But on the eve of Beltane, a sizzling kiss with a mysterious lass ignites Drostan’s blood…and threatens his vow.

Amelia MacLeod is on the run, desperate to escape her past, and an abusive family. But Wolf Isle isn’t just a place to hide, it may be her only hope of redemption—if she can doom her clan’s enemy, the Macquaries. Only, she imagined her enemy would be a hideous brute, not a big, brawny, and kind-hearted Highlander like Drostan.

Because now Amelia’s discovered a way to destroy the Macquarie Clan for good—
if she can bring herself to infiltrate the clan, seduce Drostan, and bring about the Macquarie curse. Of course, she hasn’t accounted for the far-reaching consequences of her own dark past…or her traitorous desire for the Highlander she came to destroy.
