Ravished by a Highlander 

Here's mine from   Ravished by a Highlander by Paula Quinn.  It's a book that I've just started. It's a light, highlander romance - fun reading!
The blurb:
Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady.  For her own protection she's been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown's most closely guarded secret.  Until a shocking betrayal -- and a bold rescue -- land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.

As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he's not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress.  He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched.  Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire. . .  and desperate for more.  With Davina's secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can't live without.

Here's my Friday 56:
She needed to eat something besides berries, but there was no time to hunt.  He prayed they were not being followed.  "If we ride hard," he told them all, stepping out from behind the tree, "we can reach Ayrshire in a few hours."
