THE HIGHLANDER'S BRIDE TROUBLE
Wine’s novel reaches the very core of Scottish romance. She has brought together two extremely strong-willed, stubborn characters whose passions run as deep as their senses of honor. The rapid pace, wonderful prose and deeply emotional scenes make this book a marvelous read.
Nareen Grant is as highly skilled with weaponry as she is educated. Betrayed by her family, Nareen escaped and made her way as a serving maid to the daughters of noblemen. Saer MacLeod, a highly feared warrior, meets Nareen at the king’s court. Her beauty and strength of character overwhelm him. Though Nareen rebuffs his advances, Saer vows to protect her when danger arises, and marry her if need be. Her respect for Saer develops along with desire. When Saer is severely wounded, Nareen calls on every healer she knows to help him. When he recovers, she must choose between personal freedom and being with her soul mate forever.
