Overview

Passion sparks in USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Teresa Medeiros’s irresistibly tempting new romance after a sexy

Highlander kidnaps his rival’s spirited English bride Emmaline Marlowe is about to wed the extremely powerful laird of the Hepburn clan to save her father from debtor’s prison when ruffian Jamie Sinclair bursts into the abbey on a magnificent black horse and abducts her in one strong swoop. Though he is Hepburn’s sworn enemy, Emma’s mysterious captor is everything her bridegroom is not—handsome, virile, dangerous . . . and a perilous temptation for her yearning heart.

Jamie expects Emma to be some milksop English miss, not a fiery, defiant beauty whose irresistible charms will tempt him at every turn. But he cannot allow either one of them to forget he is her enemy and she his pawn in the deadly Highland feud between the clans. So why does he still want her so badly for himself? Stealing his enemy’s bride was simple, but can he claim her innocence without losing his heart?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Medeiros (Some Like It Wild) leaves Regency England for Scotland (exact time and place not specified) in this charming romance. About to speak wedding vows that will bind her to the elderly earl of Hepburn and save her family from poverty, Emmaline Marlowe finds herself abducted by Hepburn's sworn enemy, Jamie Sinclair. Trapped in the Scottish wilds with Jamie and his men, she tries to unravel a tangled mystery around the source of the feud: the unsolved murder of Jamie's parents. Readers will enjoy the appealing, self-reliant heroine and her efforts to avoid her marriage, find the man of her dreams, and take care of her parents and three younger sisters. Quick-paced, clever dialogue lightly sprinkled with Scottish slang moves things along almost too quickly toward a somewhat rushed conclusion. (Sept.)
Library Journal
Desperate to force the cruel, unscrupulous Earl of Hepburn to meet his demands, Jamie Sinclair snatches the Earl's would-be English bride from the altar steps, slings her across his saddle, and sweeps her off to the icy heights of Ben Nevis, fanning the flames of a centuries-long feud. While woefully innocent and dutiful to her family to a fault, Emmaline Marlowe is not the docile, helpless miss Jamie expects. As her bravery, indomitable spirit, and grit (and cooking skills) slowly win the respect of Jamie and his men, the attraction between the pair explodes into passion, threatening their goals and their hearts. VERDICT Old enmity and more recent tragedy lie at the heart of this funny, gently poignant historical that revitalizes the well-worn feuding-families plot with wit, sizzle, and twists that turn expectations on their heads. A delightful diversion that deserves a sequel. Medeiros (Some Like It Wild) lives in Kentucky. [Ebook ISBN 978-1-4391-7071-7.]
