Book Description:
Surrender never tasted so sweet…

Highland warrior, Blane Sutherland, has one mission: disguise himself as an Englishman, cross the border and retrieve Lady Aliah de Mowbray. Always up for a challenge, he agrees, pursuing his conquest with vigor—and trying to deny the powerful desire that eclipses him each time he touches his charge. A rogue of the highest order and a younger son, he has nothing to offer a lady but a broken heart.

Aliah is skeptical of the English noble who has come to take her to her father and sister in Scotland, but she pushes her doubts aside. Without word in months, she must make certain her family is safe, then she can return to England to join the convent she has sworn to pledge her life. But then her escort reveals his true self—he’s a Highlander and his kisses are more seductive than the sweetest of wines.

What is a Highlander to do when he falls for the daughter of his enemy? And what is a lady to do when she cannot trust her heart?


My Thoughts About the Book:
I love a good historical romance novel and I'm especially partial to Scottish Highland novels. As this series progresses it is enjoyable. It isn't my favorite series. By for quick, easy and enjoyable reads this is a good series to go with.


As for Blane and Aliah, I enjoyed their little romance. I especially love that Aliah hunted and fought with Blane. She had the right sense of things being that killing is wrong but doing so to save yourself and other is a good thing. I tend to dislike books where the hero or heroine feels a tremendous about of guilt for killing someone hell bent on murdering them. So I enjoyed that Aliah thought about it and then moved on.

I am enjoying the connection of the characters, brothers, friends, sister, etc. This means we get to see a bit more of the past characters which I enjoy immensely.

A nice historical romance read.
