Image of Never Love a Highlander (The Highlanders)

Banks’ final volume in the McCabe brothers trilogy reinforces her reputation for writing sexy, emotionally moving Highland romances. This book provides a gut-wrenching, fast-paced story populated by highly sensual, wonderfully portrayed characters. Like vintage wine, Banks’ books just get better with age.

To seal an alliance between their clans, the lairds arrange for Rionna McDonald to marry a McCabe brother. Having previously rejected Alaric, she is to wed Caelen. Love has nothing to do with the marriage. Rionna is far more interested in gaining abilities as a “warrior princess” than being a genteel lady, much to Caelen’s dismay. When her father joins forces with Duncan Cameron, a bitter McCabe enemy, Caelen believes Rionna is not involved, but a pawn in her father’s schemes. While Caelen and Rionna have fallen in love, it is not until the startling climax that their true feelings are revealed. (BALLANTINE, Nov., 320 pp., $7.99)
