THE TROUBLE WITH HIGHLANDERS
Wine’s understanding of the Highlands is fantastic, and she skillfully shares this with readers through her well-developed characters, their dialogue and the descriptions that also propel the story. Her alpha hero is a man who is hard, yet gentle, tamed by a strong-willed heroine romance fans will love. Readers are drawn into their romance, as Wine weaves her wonderful tale around them.
Daphne MacLeod gave herself to Norris Sutherland so her betrothed would renounce her and wed another. When Norris shows up on her doorstep, Daphne doesn’t know whether to be happy or angry. Norris wants her back in his bed and will do whatever he can to convince her. Then, Daphne’s neighbor kidnaps her, attempting to force her into marriage. Norris comes to her rescue, finding her badly beaten. He brings her home, vowing to be her protector. Daphne leaves with Norris for his castle, where their relationship strengthens, but others are determined to ruin them and frame Daphne for Norris’ father’s sudden illness. Will he be able to find the evidence to clear Daphne? (SOURCEBOOKS, Oct., 320 pp., $6.99)
