Wine’s stories are rich with historical detail and her characters are fully developed. Highland Hellcat uses the popular captive/captor theme to the fullest as Wine’s tale is one that pulls readers in.
Laird Connor Lindsey is looking to set up alliances and has arranged a marriage with Robert Chattan’s daughter Diedre. When he discovers that Diedre isn’t pure, he steals her sister, Brina, though she is promised to the church. Brina fights with all she is worth to convince Connor to let her go to the abbey and he uses seduction like a weapon. When Brina is taken from him and sent to court, he follows. Her father is also on his way. Hopefully between them all, peace will reign. (SOURCEBOOKS, Oct., 352 pp., $6.99)
