Highland Hellcat by Mary Wine
In Highland Hellcat, Mary Wine introduces the three Chattan daughters. The romantic lead is the third daughter of Laird Chattan - the daughter promised to the Church at birth and raised to be self-sufficient, independent and to do without praise. All her life, her family and clan have been careful not to spoil her - she's rarely complimented, always worn white and rarely given physical affection all to get her ready for the spartan existence expected of nuns.
But when her eldest sister elopes with a Douglas, her sister's betrothed retaliates by taking Laird Chattan's third daughter. Suddenly, Brina goes from the soon-to-be bride of Christ to the heavily guarded soon-to-be bride of Laird Lindsay.
Connor Lindsay is tall, well built, blond, and accustomed to hardship. His parents weren't wed when he was born and he had a difficult childhood. By the time he was finally recognized as Laird, his character was set. Much like Brina, he was raised not to complain and to look to the good of the clan before his own personal wants. The alliance with Laird Chattan brings him the backing of two strong clans and he can't afford to lose his Chattan bride. Connor admires Brina's filial devotion and her desire to obey her father's will. He also respects her honesty, integrity and commitment to the Church. But he's noticed that she's spirited and beautiful and would make him an ideal wife. He's not willing to give her up.
In Highland Hellcat Mary Wine delivers a delightful period adventure with romance, humor, and adventure. It's a fun, satisfying read!
