Image of Surrender To The Highlander

Brisbin's medieval is excellent. She's colorful and graphic when describing murder and violence, and the villain
is a nasty piece of work, but his dastardly plot moves this tale along. The quick-moving story contains several twists readers may not see coming.

Exiled for years, Lady Margriet is summoned home by her father. The warrior he sends to escort her is large, handsome and so sensual that he would make the bravest maiden's knees weak. The only problem is she's no longer a maiden. In fact, Margriet is with child. She pretends to be a nun to escape more male attention.

Rurik is smitten with Margriet. Even though he considers her off-limits, he can't get her out of his mind. The battle he wages against his heart and the love Margriet feels for Rurik are tested when the man who used Margriet tries to kill her in his plot to destroy Rurik. (Harlequin, Feb., 304 pp., $5.99)
