Review: The Trouble with Highlanders - Mary Wine


After a night of intense passion, beautiful heiress Daphne MacLeod left Norris Sutherland without so much as a backward glance. Norris, the son of a very powerful Earl, is used to getting what he wants — and right now, he wants Daphne back in his bed.

When Daphne is kidnapped by a rival clan leader who is intent on forcing her into marriage so that he can control her lands, Norris has a choice to make. Will he let go of the one woman he's ever desired for more than one night, or will he resolve himself to rescuing the woman who has captured his heart?

My thoughts:
The blurb is a bit misleading. This is what happens. 3 months ago Daphne had sex with the Earl of Sutherland so she did not have to marry her best friend who was in love with another woman. She is now ruined gods and tries to get her clan back on its feet. They are poor and without a clear leader. And Norris does think about her, as a certain part of him remembers her well. And that is where this story begins.

Daphne is believed to be an heiress, which is silly since she knows she is dirt poor. She wants to feel free, she says what she feels and she is a strong woman, something that is not always good back then.

Norris, the strong hero, the leader for his clan (and all that) is, well truth be told he kind of thinks with his favorite body part when it comes to the heroine.

I liked the book because it had the usual drama. A couple that can't be but is on each other like rabbits anyway. A bitchy person that shows up (I shall say no more). And getting what you want, or do not know you want.

But I did feel that Norris should have done more at times. There were some things and if I had been Daphne then I would just have told him to bugger off, but just like him she thought with her new favorite body part.

Yes there is passion in this book if you have not noticed ;)

Bahahaha that cover is funny. It looks like he stabbing himself

The Bookworm said...

I enjoyed your review and yes, he looks like he's stabbed his side on that sword.

Cherry said...

I have to agree with you about the sword in the cover. If that sword is as sharp as it is suppose to be, then that hero is a dead man.

Melliane said...

Oh a Highlander books! Yeah I think I only need to have something like that lol. One day I'll try more books like that, I think I only read three of them.

LOL! ..."he kind of thinks with his favorite body part when it comes to the heroine." and "...just like him she thought with her new favorite body part." I have a feeling I won't like the book as much as I liked your review.

I also loved your cover critique. You kill me! :D

Poor guy, he is torn apart by love and stabbed himself...but then it is told that he got a wound in a battle. But that sword, it's in him, he is dead

I read once a Mary Wine book. No more, troubles or no troubles, especially when the characters use the wrong body parts to do their thinking.
