Defending Her Was His Duty

Skilled with a sword and quick with her wit, Scottish rebel Claire Stuart cannot be tamed. And nothing can deter her from rescuing her beloved sister and saving them both from arranged marriages—not even the handsome Highlander who vows to protect Claire. His scorching gaze and fiery kiss bring her to the brink of surrender, but she belongs to no man...

Seducing Her Would Be His Reward

Graham Grant has had his share of lasses. But he has never met one as headstrong or as bonnie as Claire—or one with such desperate, dnagerous plans. Helping her could betray his honor, his country, and more. Graham can't claim her. Yet everything in him says: Take her, make her yours, teach her pleasure, and never let her go.

WOW WOW WOW!!!! One of the best historical romance novels I have ever read. And I have read plenty by many different authors. I usually never write recommendations but I would be remiss if I did not help get this book into as many hands as I could if these types of book are your cup of tea. No I have no affiliation with Ms. Quinn as one might think given all this book boasting. I just simply was floored by her exceptional writing style and compelling story line all mixed with some actual history. This is not for the faint of heart as far as some of the steamy content, but heck let's fess up; that's partly why some of us read these books!!

Excellent reading¿
Paula Quinn knows how to write Historical romance. Her characters bring life to the pages. The story draws you in immediately and keeps you turning the pages. Nothing is predictable, and it kept me on the edge in an attempt to figure out who to trust. The relationship between Graham and Claire had just enough sizzle and lively exchange to make them believable and extremely likeable. The book flowed easily to a dramatic conclusion that did not make me feel cheated. I will definitely look for other books by this author and will set this book aside as a must-read-again.

In 1659 English General Monck captures Scotswoman Claire Stuart. He plans to use her as a negotiating pawn to force her brother Connor, leading an enemy fighting force using guerilla tactics, to end their rebellion by surrendering. While in captivity, Claire keeps in shape and improvs her fighting skills waiting for the opportune moment to escape and join her sibling.--------------- Graham Grant is a superb warrior, but refuses to join the fight. He joins his brother-in-law, a Royal Scottish Earl, Robert Campbell on a trip where he learns of Claire¿s captivity. Graham helps Claire escape and accompanies her as she heads to her brother. As they fall in love, neither has any hope of a future together as she supports the rebellion and he pushes for peace.-------------------- Using real historical figures and events to anchor time and place, Paula Quinn provides her fans with an engaging seventeenth century romance. Claire is a fabulous lead female who prefers to fight alongside her brother while the capable warrior Graham is sick of death, maiming, and blood chooses peace. Readers will relish their delightful match up as Ms. Quinn provides a strong war and peace historical.----------- Harriet Klausner

Liked Laird of the Mist better, but this is a still a great book too! Loved the character's so much, and how we have cross over character's from Laird of the Mist . Such a great story line, so different. Do yourself a favor and get lost in this story. (Ljb).

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this the second book after 'Laird Of The Mist'. Looking forward to going on to the 'Children of The Mist' series. Yes. Highly recommended and very entertaining.

This book did not disappoint. Graham and Robert are back, along with some familiar faces from Laird of the Mist. Romance and a nice whodunit. A real page turner, I couldn't put it down.

Claire Stuart is a feisty and fearless heroine, and I loved following her on her adventure to save her sister and later her brother. Graham Grant is the typical womanizing heart throb who thinks marriage and one woman is not for him. War and battle and variety are what he prefers. He is also controlling, and coming across the very independent and formidable Claire is too much of a challenge for him to resist, though it was fun watching him squirm and try. The conflict and plot were entertaining and well developed. The journey was fun, passionate, and enjoyable. Overall, it was a great story and I loved watching the two fall in love.

Mesmerizing and captivating! Graham Grant will steal your heart in an instant! The characters that Paula Quinn brings to life in her books are so powerful and lovable that you will wish you never had to put this book down and leave their world.

Sweet, protective alpha male. The heroine drives this poor hero crazy for the majority of the novel. Going so far as to throw rocks at him! The incredibly hot scenes are filled with longing and powerful sexual tension!
