Overview

To escape the ghosts of his past, warrior Lachann MacMillan will forge his place in the world through battle and cunning. What he doesn't count on is the passion of a lifetime . . .

For Lachann, safeguarding his clan comes before life, limb, and especially love. A political marriage in Kilgorra will ensure that MacMillan lands are protected; so much the better that his bride doesn't stir his blood. But what of the intriguing woman who arouses so much more . . . and lives in the very castle where Lachann is to wed?

A nna MacIver is content to serve in her stepfather's household despite the cruelty of her stepsister, Catriona. She has a sanctuary to which she can escape and no romantic notions to impede good sense . . . until Catriona's intended bridegroom arrives in Kilgorra and shows Anna the meaning of desire. Now, with a clan's future hanging in the balance, Anna and Lachann must decide if love is a risk worth taking . . .

I enjoyed this novel very much.  It is the second book about the MacMillan brothers.  I hope that there will be more.  Lachann MacMillan  sails to Kilgorra to become laird, by way of an arranged marriage.   Instead of marrying the current lairds daughter, he finds love with Anna MacIver, the step-sister..  It was quite exciting to read about how the couple overcome the odds against them, to be together.

I read The Highlander's Desire by Margo Maguire and found it an exciting Scottish Medieval historical romance. I loved her two main characters. It's fast-paced and filled with action, romance and intrigue. It is well written and fun to read. Her characters were nicely blended into the story, so much, that it kept me interested until the end. I recommend this Scottish romance! I could not put it down.

The first 100 pages was very slow but the action picked up in the rest of the book. I would recommend.

For Anna MacIver wishing was all she could do to get through the day.   She wished her mother had not perished and left her with this awful stepfamily making her wish for a way off the island.  When Lachann MacMIllan comes to take over the kingdom as its new Laird Anna has mixed feelings as this arrangement involves him marrying her awful stepsister.   However, if Catriona was under another’s control she might give Anna the freedom she longs for. Anna is Catriona equal in all ways but having a mother to defend her rights and a father that can  contain a clear thought.  With no boundaries, her stepsister spent every moment of the day treating  her like a servant and creating a hostile existence between them.  With Lachann in the picture, what becomes clear is the need for his leadership and in doing so he makes it clear he is not a man to be trifled.  Lachlann needs a wife that cares for his people and notices that Anna is the one who answers the call to all who are in need and will not back off from any fight.  Why he is drawn to a woman he cannot have is making life for him more than difficult.  Lacklann knows that he may lose the piece of land he must have if he  should choose Anna to be his wife but every day that passes he sees she is the perfect fit for him. With Lachlann’s nemesis dogging his heels, the present Laird incapacitated to help fix the mess his  domain is in Lachlann steps up and starts making decisions, barking out orders, and trying to control his raging desire for Anna.  Lachlann succeeds at the business but with Anna is what he longs for and will have regardless of the cost. Margo Maguire has written a story that touches you romantically and fires you up with a right will win passion

Book Two of the Highlander Brothers series. It can easily be read as a standalone book, though. Anna and Lachann are both determined to avoid love forever because of their pasts. Anna has seen what love can do to people, such as Kyla and her abusive husband. Lachann is set on becoming the Laird of Kilgorra, even if he must marry a woman he does not care for. However, they cannot seem to resist one another. If you're looking for a great Highland read with a brewery thrown in, this is definitely for you.

This book held my interest from the very beginning. I hated to put it down. I didn't see how the main characters could solve their problem. There are many twists I didn't see coming.
