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.
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)
