RETURN OF THE ROGUE
The wild Highlands, the clans, the political alliances and romance merge in Fletcher's latest. Starting out strong and intriguing, this novel becomes a battle-of-wills romance with all the standard situations, villains and repartee readers expect -- there's nothing new or fresh, but it's an entertaining read.
Honora would even wed a man who doesn't want her to be free of her ruthless stepfather. But she's not as timid as Cavan thinks, and she soon displays her courage and a passion that matches his own. Together they will stave off marauders and a treacherous scheme to destroy their clan. (Avon, Mar., 384 pp., $5.99)
