[ARC Review] - Highland Hellcat

Title: Highland Hellcat
Author: Mary Wine
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: October 5, 2010

I received this book from review from Sourcebooks.

Summary:  HE WANTS A WIFE HE CAN CONTROL...

Connor Lindsey is a Highland laird, but his clan's loyalty is hard won and he takes nothing for granted. He'll do whatever it takes to find a virtuous wife, even if he has to kidnap her...

SHE HAS A SPIRIT THAT CAN'T BE TAMED...

Brina Chattan has has defied convention. She sees no reason to be docile now that she's been captured by a powerful laird and taken to his storm-tossed castle in the Highlands, far from her home. When a rival laird's interference nearly tears them apart, Connor discovers that women with a wild streak suits him much better than he ever imagined...

Thoughts: Highland laird, Connor Lindsey is looking for a wife who is innocent and one that will comply to all he says.  But when he kidnaps Brina Chattan -- she isn't exactly what he was expecting.  A wild side that refuses to obey or be tamed.

Highland Hellcat is entertaining. A fascinating read. You can really tell how much research was put into this book. Full of romance and intrigue. Exactly what I hoped for when I seen the title and cover.  This was my first time reading anything by Mary Wine, and for me this was an enjoyable read.  I really liked Brina. She was such a free spirit and she was exactly what Connor need it.  If you love Highlander's... you'll love this one.

Score: 3 Stars

  4. The first book was "To Conquer a Highlander" and it came out in July 2010 I believe.
    Mary Wine writes some great Scottish romances in my opinion.

    :)

  6. You're welcome. I think they work fine as stand alones, so I don't think you were missing anything by reading "Highland Hellcat" first.
