AN IRRESISTIBLE SCOUNDREL
Highlander Patrick MacGregor likes his life just the way it is. Fighting for his coin, enjoying a woman’s charms, and bearing no responsibility at all? Aye, that’s the life for him. That is, until Patrick sees her–a raven-haired beauty with eyes as dark as midnight. Patrick swore never to fall in love. Not even with a lass as wild as he…especially when she’s from a rival clan.
AN UNDENIABLE DESIRE
Charlotte Cunningham knows Patrick is trouble the moment she sets eyes on him. Her only goal is to escape the possibility of marriage. Any marriage. But as the summer days turn into sultry nights, enticing her beyond reason, Charlie is forced to choose between the freedom she craves and the reckless rogue she can’t forget.
In the New York Times bestselling tradition of Lynsay Sands, Hannah Howell, and Karen Hawkins comes a new book in Paula Quinn’s new sinfully sexy Scottish romance series.
My Thoughts: As the MacGregor/Grant Family Tree grows, so, too, does my interest in this Scottish family, with its myriad of personalities journeying through life’s ridiculous/dangerous moments.
Patrick MacGregor, considered to be the Devil of the Highlands, is solely about Patrick, uppermost, the number of women he can bed. But the chase isn’t in him anymore, hasn’t been for a long time, yet he continues. Women are unable to resist the lure of the Devil of the Highlands. He comes to realize that women are just trouble, when he’s gotten into one too many fights over a woman he could take or leave. After all, it appears he has his pick.
Charlotte Cunningham is present in the tavern when Patrick is attacked by a brother, protecting his sister, who had seduced Patrick, not that he wasn’t willing. What is SHE doing in a tavern? Charlotte, better known as Charlie had this thought.
“…the stranger was without doubt the most wickedly alluring man to ever cross her path.”
Patrick is a free spirit. Neither family or woman would restrict his movements. But that is before he met Charlotte, or actually saw her bathing in the river. She took care of him, not trusting a man, particularly one spying upon her bathing, she used the sling she was very good at using, knocking him out.
Patrick has a way with lasses. He smooth-talks his way out of almost anything. He tries to beguile Charlotte with his silver-tongue. Charlie gives a bold front to Patrick. She doesn’t want anything to do with him, and certainly not anyone her father suggests she marry. Her heart belongs to Kendrick Fergusson, dead for many years. Do life’s circumstances change what one is determined to maintain?
Not all appears as it seems. Quinn will entertain you with Patrick’s determined and charming way and Charlie’s denial that his charm even affects her.
