    Is it a sin to want what you should not have?

    When three clans who have been fighting one another their entire life have to create a peace between them the question arises - is that possible? The peace would never happen if not for three very wily women who are from these warring clans but want lairds for husbands and make a pact to get that done. One woman has accomplished this already and now Lady Isobel Cameron is ready for the man of her dreams to become her partner for life and if Kendrew Mackintosh is ready or not, here she comes.

    Isobel fell in love with Kendrew the moment she saw him and realized that beneath the tough façade beat the heart of a kind man. Kendrew regarded all things outside his clan especially a gently breed lady as trouble and if he had known who Isobel was, he would never have engaged in any type of liaison. But your heart tends to rule when your true love is near and for Kendrew fight as he might against it Isobel is not only warming his heart she is keeping the entire winter chill away from him. It may seem that Kendrew can blame the fanciful tales and mysteries of the land on some of his choices but when it comes to Isobel, he knows he made the right decision and will never regret the change she brings to his life.

    Kendrew must come to terms with the peace agreement and providing the piece needed to do that is not an easy request. He always felt that his land and property were not to be shared and now he was going to be part of rewriting history. While other darker forces will do what they can stop the peace from happening, when the three clans join together no group of maundering rouges will take it away.

    This series fulfills all of my Scottish historical romance requirements. There are the fierce men with feisty women, magic everywhere, and the amazing landscape of Scotland. Ms. Welfonder is able to place the reader in Scotland with such accuracy you feel the mist upon your face and see the men in kilts standing on the hillside embracing the woman they love.

    A wonderful historical romance

    In 1396 King Robert Stewart of Scotland orders the lairds of clans MacDonald, Cameron and Mackintosh to end their bloody feud in the Glen of Many Legends with final combat. The clan of the last male survivor will own the Glen; those from the losing two clans will leave. The sisters of the three lairds form a secret pact between them in which each will marry the lord of one of the other two clans in order to bring a lasting peace.

    In 1397 Lady Isobel Cameron selects Kendrew Macintosh as she loves him and prays he reciprocates though he shows no indication. He and his clan prefer the harshness of the tradition of a berserker, but are unprepared to weather the storm of Lady Isobel. She decides to seduce her chosen one who begins to fall in love with his guest unaware she is sister to laird James Cameron (see Sins of a Highland Devil for his tale of love with Lady Catriona sister to Laird Alasdair MacDonald). However, enemies of the three clans have other ideas for this pair.

    The second Glen of Many Legends Highlander medieval romance stars a strong lead couple and a powerful support cast, especially the other prime duets. The story line contains the same general concept as the first tale in which the star-crossed protagonists struggle with conflicting love for their respective clan and each other. However, Sue-Ellen Welfonder shows her skills by making the path that Isabel and Kendrew take differ from that of Catriona and James. Historical romance fans will appreciate this entertaining late fourteenth century tale while looking forward to how the third sister wins her Laird.

    Best to read the books in order!

    Review by Jen:
    I think I may have enjoyed this book a little more if I had read the first book in the series, Sins of a Highland Devil (Highland Warriors 1). Ms Welfonder does a decent enough job of making this book stand alone, but there are enough references to the prior book, that I would have benefited to having read it first.

    Let's start with what I liked. I enjoyed the characters. Isobel is a strong woman and knows exactly what she wants--Kendrew--and she'll do anything to make him realize that they are fated to be together. Kendrew was a little harder for me to like, but he grew on me and I was rooting (ok, who are we kidding, it's a romance, we know how it's going to end) for them to get their HEA. I also liked the setting, as I'm a sucker for medieval romances. This one is set in a remote valley in the Scottish Highlands, with three warring clans. The three sisters of the chiefs take it upon themselves to try to make peace by marrying one of the rival chiefs. Solid series plot.

    What I didn't like so much... the paranormal elements woven into the story. I could have done with out the ghost story that was woven throughout the book. In fact, I don't think it really added anything and I found myself skimming past them to get back to the main plot.

    I can't say I'll be searching out the other books in the series, but this one wasn't bad. I'd suggest reading in order for a more enjoyable read.

    Temptation of a Highland Scoundrel

    Rating: 3.75/5 I love the premise of Sue-Ellen Welfonder's Highland Warriors series. To avoid being banished from The Glen of Many Legends by the king, the three lairds sharing the glen agree to a shaky truce ending hundreds of years of feuding. Their sisters, Catriona, Isobel and Marjory, make a pact of their own to secure the peace - each one will marry a laird from a rival clan. Temptation of a Highland Scoundrel is Lady Isobel Cameron and Laird Kendrew Macintosh's story. Isobel was smitten with Kendrew from the moment she laid eyes on him. Kendrew has resigned himself to bachelorhood, believing that no lady could survive life in the cold, treacherous part of the glen he calls home. Isobel believes otherwise, and she is determined to convince Kendrew they were meant to be together. The passion between Kendrew and Isobel ignites quickly. Isobel is a clever young woman. She knows how to get Kendrew's attention from the start. Kendrew was stubborn and determined to push her away, but she will not be swayed. She must get them together for the sake of the glen and for her own heart. Like the first book in the series (Sins of a Highland Devil), there is also a ghostly paranormal element to the story. The ghost also wanted peace in the glen, and he did some meddling to push Isobel and Kendrew together. While I enjoyed the mischievous ghost, there was also another storyline involving the ghost and the legendary dragons that live underneath the memorial stones surrounding Castle Nought. It was interesting to read about, but it just didn't fit in with Isobel and Kendrew's story. While the ghost wanted to see Isobel and Kendrew together, there were other dark forces - human ones - trying to keep them apart. I felt like the villains were too underdeveloped. After finishing the book, I'm still not sure who they are. I would have liked the villain's history explored more. Temptation of a Highland Scoundrel picks up where the first book Sins of a Highand Devil ends. I would recommend reading the books in order, because if not you'll be missing a lot of important backstory, both with the characters and events. Temptation is an enjoyable story that fans of sexy, brutish Highlanders and cunning, feisty heroines are sure to love.
