    HOW TO HANDLE A HIGHLANDER by Mary Wine is an exciting Medieval

    HOW TO HANDLE A HIGHLANDER by Mary Wine is an exciting Medieval Highland Historical Romance set in 1489 Scotland. Book 3 of the Sutherlands/Hot Highlanders, but can be read as a stand alone. Follow, Moira Frazer and Gahan Sutherland as they fight passion, danger, and love. A most addictive story from beginning to end. You do not want to miss any of this Highland story. Filled with danger, passion, forbidden love, clan honor,trust, a fiery Highland lass and a honor bound Highlander. Ms. Wine as created another exciting,sexy tale that is not only action packed,suspense filled but also has sizzling love scenes that particularly sets the pages aflame. Another must read! Ms. Wine never disappoints her readers with her fiery Highland lasses and her hot-headed,powerful Highlanders. Well done!! I love this author's Highlanders and the Sutherlands are no exception, they are a most addictive clan to be sure. I can hardly wait for the next installment. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

    Another good one from Mary Wine

    I love Mary Wine's writing.
    No matter what I'm reading whether its sci-fi, mystery, southwestern, action/adventure, contemporary romance or comedy, i always find myself gong back for some good old Highland Lovin' . And Mary Wine knows how to write them soooo well!
    She gives you great love stories, with sexy characters, fun plots, a few laughs, and sweeps you away to places & times you'd like to escape to often.
    If that sounds good to you then i'm sure you can HANDLE this one & enjoy it too!

    How to Handle a Highlander is the 6th book in Mary Wine's Highla

    How to Handle a Highlander is the 6th book in Mary Wine's Highlander series. This is my first book by Wine, but I thought this worked well enough to read as a standalone. How to Handle a Highlander is a historical romance, as well as a Highlander story. Moira Fraser is our heroine, being considered a commoner by her family; she is forced by her evil half brother Bari, to marry an old laird, in a deal for help to destroy the Sutherland family. Moira is a sweet, likeable and pretty heroine, and despite her being treated beneath the rest of the family, she feels it is her responsibility to do what is necessary to help her clan.

    Gahan Sutherland is our hero, and a hot hunky Highlander he is. Gahan, who represents his clan, heads for the home of the Laird Achaius Matheson, to try and stop a clan war. The Laird, who will marry Moira, also has his own agenda. When Gahan sets his eyes on Moira, he is immediately attracted to her, and knows she is being forced to marry Achaius, who is a mean and scheming old man. Gahan at first feels sympathy for Moira, but over a short period, he becomes obsessive and protective of her, and even though she is now married to the Laird, they both respond to their sexual chemistry. What they do not know is that the Laird anticipates this, and secretly plans to destroy the Frasers, with the exception of Moira, enabling him to take over the Fraser land,

    Within that plot, Moira’s half brother is out for revenge against the Sutherlands for killing his sister, who had tried to poison Gahan’s father. This story is filled with plots, betrayals, scheming relatives, and a romance between two people who find true love.


    I liked both Moira and Gahan, as they made a nice couple. I did think that it was a bit unrealistic that the serious and dutiful Moira, who was promised to another man, would fall into bed with Gahan almost the first night she met him. The story moved back and forth, as Gahan was stopped just about at every move to free Moira from her half brother’s shenanigans, as well as from the clutches of her husband. A surprise twist happens half way through that creates more havoc, and the last third of the story is exciting and action packed. It was a nice historical romance, with a quite a few steamy scenes. Will Gahan be able to save Moira? Will they both have a life together? Will the Sutherlands survive the plotting of the other clans? You need to read this book to find out.
