Bookcover: Seducing the Highlander

In Seducing the Highlander, Emma Wildes introduces three Scottish heroes who can't help but come to the rescue of three damsels in distress. The included stories are Seducing Ian, Seducing Robbie, and Seducing Adain, and although each story is a stand-alone novella, this anthology is actually made up of three connected stories that make this book hard to put down.

The center story, Seducing Robbie, has my favorite plot. Julia Cameron is an heiress who thinks the man she's supposed to marry is responsible for the deaths of her father and her brother. To escape his clutches, she approaches Robbie McCray with a marriage bargain. He agrees and it turns out he's handy at more than satisfying her body when he decides to help her discover the truth of her father's murder. Although the mystery was simple to solve, there were enough interesting twists to keep the story exciting, while Robbie and Julia's relationship grew nicely as the tale progressed.

Since the stories were linked by the characters, it was also easy to fall in love with the hero of not only the story I was reading at the time, but the hero of the next story.

Seducing Adain and Seducing Ian had the two heroines I enjoyed reading about the most. Leanna and Gillian were engaging characters with whom I had no trouble connecting. Gillian's ability to accept Adain, even though he still seems to be in love with the woman who rejected him, and Leanna's joy to be kidnapped, and therefore saved from a terrible marriage, each gave these heroines a unique quality that I immensely enjoyed.

If you enjoy historical romance with a little spice, these three stories are a great way to spend an afternoon...or morning...or night.

And if, like me, you've never read Emma Wildes before, it's probably time to change that, because this book was excellent reading.
