Overview

She must tame a Highland barbarian...before he steals her heart.

Rogue, Book 1

With the death of her elderly husband, the Marquess Newburn, Jillian Alton is relieved that she will never have to endure another forced marriage. Until his long-lost son reappears to claim his title and holdings.

Left penniless, Jillian reluctantly accepts a tidy sum from the Prince of Wales to "refine" a Scottish Highlander who has inherited an English title-a man who shakes her resolve to never again let a man close enough to snare her in unwanted wedlock.

Ian MacLeod never planned to set foot in England, but the breakup of the clan system has left him in need of claiming the profits of his inherited English lands to support his people. When he meets the very proper Lady Newburn, he is intrigued...and determined to melt her icy heart.

It shouldn't be much of a challenge. After all, he's never met a lass who didn't quite willingly succumb to him. But he quickly learns that the beautiful, auburn-haired Jillian is no mooning maiden.

And there's something about her stepson that raises the hair on the back of his neck-a clear signal of danger that has never proved him wrong...

Warning: This book contains a sexy Highlander who will make the most proper of ladies have very improper thoughts.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Breeding has successfully created appealing characters while merging elements of traditional Regencies, magic, and Scots brawn into an enjoyable read.”
—Library Journal on Rogue of the Highlands

“This book excels by combining a little bit of everything—romance, espionage, mystery and a touch of magic—into an emotional and exciting narrative.”
—RT Book Reviews on Rogue of the Highlands

“For those who thought they’d read everything about Camelot and its legendary threesome, this newest can’t be missed. This book will remain on the favorite shelf.”
—RT Book Reviews on Camelot’s Destiny

Library Journal
In this enjoyable Regency romance, the Prince of Wales tells Jillian Alton that if she can successfully domesticate and make presentable to the ton wild Highlander Ian MacLeod, Prinny will give her enough money to bring out her younger sister the following Season. Jillian’s late husband had beaten her, and his heir now wants her for the same nefarious purpose. Ian is the stereotypical Highlander—broad of accent and quick to heroics. Jillian is initially shocked by his impetuosity, flirtatiousness, and language. Yet once Ian discovers that Jillian’s stepson intends to marry and abuse her, he is determined to rescue her from that fate. A hint of magic enters the story when Jillian is given a faery stone to protect her from a murderer. Verdict The dialog sparkles, although there is some clunky phrasing here and there and several of the Scots phrases are not entirely authentic. Still, Breeding has successfully created appealing characters while merging elements of traditional Regencies, magic, and Scots brawn into an enjoyable read.—B. Allison Gray, Santa Barbara P.L.
