Highland Heat by Mary Wine
Ruined, betrayed and banished....As brave as she is impulsive, Deirdre Chattan’s tendency to follow her heart and not her head has finally tarnished her reputation beyond repair. But when powerful Highland Laird Quinton Cameron finds her, he could care less about her past -- it’s her future that he’s about to change....
But it’s never too late for redemption...From the moment Quinton sets eyes on Deirdre Chattan, rational thought vanishes, for in her eyes he sees a fiery spirit that matches his own and he’ll be damned if he’ll let such a wild Scottish rose wither under the weight of a nun’s habit. . .
With nothing to lose, Deirdre and Quinton band together to protect king and crown. But what they can accomplish alone is nothing compared to what they can build with their passion for each other.
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.
