Yes! For a tale that begins in a convent, Highland Heat sweeps along with fierce passions for land, clan, and kin, not to mention the fiery passion that flares up between Dierde Chattan and Quinton Cameron that is as elemental, raw, and beautiful as the Scottish Highlands. An irresistible wildness inside Dierde responds to the savageness, strength, and bluntness of Quinton, but staying with him will not bring honor to her father, which is something she feels she must do after dishonoring him by her past willful act. With her strong will, work ethic, guilt, determination, cunning, and capacity for love, Dierde is a powerful heroine that lures the reader into remarkable vicarious adventures-some scary, others rewarding, and some emotionally enlightening. But, best of all, the fierce, passionate love she brings to life scorches the pages of Highland Heat. It flares up and matches the onslaught of Quinton's lust that he refuses to call love. The powerful, wealthy Laird Quinton Cameron, Earl of Liddell, rides herd on the Scottish clans to keep them from fighting each other, hoping they can stand strong together against the English, but century-old habits of feuds and fighting among themselves just refuse to die. Even with demanding duties, Quinton thinks of the feisty hellion Dierde that matches him snarl for snarl and growl for growl by day then responds with unbridled passion as they make love in the dark Scottish night, only to wake up ready to stand her ground and do battle with him again. Mary Wine's description of Drumdeer, Quinton's fortified, magnificent castle with the exquisite eagle tower makes the reader see and feel the opulence inside the stronghold. Highland Heat is like a fine tapestry with Dierde and Quinton for the focus with muted patterns of political intrigues, cultural norms, religious beliefs, and the indomitable, beautiful Scottish Highlands making a spellbinding designs that lures the reader in and does not disappoint because it truly delivers the heat. The love scenes-hot and fierce-almost melt the pages together. Each book in this Scottish Highland Trilogy stands alone. Highland Heat, the final one, is awesome and one to keep to read again and again. Details that intrigue, excite, and pull the reader into this time in Scottish history with characters that are breathtaking make this one a keeper.

(Spoiler Alert) The only thing wrong with this is; How can this POSSIBLY be the last one of the series?! It seems like there should be another book to cover Deirdre's father finding out about his twin daughters when he comes to finally claim their mother as his bride. I mean in this book it references the fact that he needs to marry their mother and why but then it just ends! So frustrating!

Highland Heat is the third in Wine's Highlander series. Once again, Wine delivers romantic banter, excitement, and escape. Those that read her earlier novel To Conquer A Highlander are familiar with Deirdre Chattan, the eldest daughter who was manipulated and betrayed by her Douglas lover. But in Highland Heat, Deirdre has matured - she's had to live with the consequences of her seduction and she's determined not to bring dishonor to her family. Deirdre is willing to sacrifice a great deal - everything that she has - in order to live up to her father's expectations. Deirdre's sense of honor makes her an interesting and sympathetic romantic lead. As Deirdre and her lover face intrigue, plot twists, unfortunate encounters, and romantic interludes, fans of historical fiction will surely find Highland Heat a fun, satisfying read.
