Peace in the glens means war in the bedchamber!
Scotland. 1699. In a time of heroes, the greatest hero of all is Callum Mackinnon, Laird of Achnasheen. Brave, reckless, canny, and handsome enough to turn any lassie weak at the knees, Callum is a legend in the wild corner of the Highlands where he rules. Now the young laird is determined to choose a new path for his clan and end the violent feud with the Drummonds, a conflict that has painted the glens red with blood for centuries. This means taking Bonny Mhairi Drummond, the Rose of Bruard, as his wife. When negotiations with her pig-headed father break down, Callum seizes matters into his own hands and kidnaps the fairest maiden in Scotland, swearing to make her his own.
Bonny Mhairi is the adored only child of Clan Drummond’s doughty chieftain and she’s inherited all her father’s courage and stubbornness. Not to mention his undying hatred for anyone called Mackinnon. When the Mackinnon chieftain steals her away from her home and vows to woo her into accepting him as her husband, she swears that she’ll never consent to be his bride. But trapped inside her foe’s castle, Mhairi finds it hard to cling to old certainties. She detests her arrogant jailer, even as he sparks a fierce, forbidden hunger in her soul.
Loving the enemy…
As Callum and Mhairi wage their passionate war of hearts, danger, treachery and desire circle closer and closer. When her father’s army masses at the gates of Achnasheen, will Mhairi prove herself a Drummond now and forever? Or will new allegiances trump ancient hatred, as the desperate laird battles to win the lass he loves more than his life?

Callum is determined to bring peace between the Mackinnons and the Drummonds. Thinking that a marriage between himself and the Drummond's daughter would settle things, he offered for her. When he is turned down, he takes matters into his own hands and kidnaps his would be bride. Thinking he was taking timid meek woman, he soon learns that he will have his hands full. Mhairi can't believe the the Mackinnon has kidnapped her. Considering all that she has heard of the clan while growing up, she does everything she can to get away from him before they reach his lands. Unfortunately, she doesn't have any luck. She soon learns that Callum wants to marry her to end the long feud, but she will never consent to the marriage and tries to convince Callum to let her go home and talk her father into a truce. While Callum and Mhairi continue their disagreement about how to bring peace to the two clans, they do start to know one another. Will Callum be able to get her to change her ind about marriage? I loved the latest addition to Campbell's The Lairds Most Likely series. I loved reading the interaction between Callum and Mhairi, most of which had me laughing out loud. I have absolutely adored this series and hope that Campbell will be writing more. Regardless, I'm excited to see what she come up with next!
