TEMPTING THE HIGHLANDER
Genre: Historical Romance, Medieval, Scotland
Reading like a delightful Shakespearean comedy, Sinclair’s latest has humor, passion and sexual tension, even if the basic plotline is a bit predictable. She brings two tales to readers as twins find unexpected love. Most interesting of all is how well and compassionately she handles a hero’s disability.
With their powerful father tied up in clan politics, the Schellden sisters are free to do as they please. Raelynd and Meriel are as different as night and day; one is a warrior princess and the other a fragile flower. Then the McTiernay brothers, quiet Crevan and his twin Craig, arrive and an experimental kiss in the stables gives their father an idea. A pretend betrothal between his daughters and McTiernay brothers would save the clan from usurpers.
Even though it is to be a false engagement, Raelynd bristles at the thought of marriage; at least she is paired with Craig, not quiet Crevan. As they journey to safety, however, it is the powerful, silent Crevan who fascinates Raelynd. She discovers that his silence stems from fear others will believe his stuttering makes him weak. Though bound to her sister, Crevan yearns for Raelynd. Soon the unlikely pair is tangled in a political masquerade that includes his twin, her sister, their clans and a fight to protect the Schelldens. (ZEBRA, Sep., 352 pp., $6.99)
