Description from Amazon.com:
First in a brand-new series from New York Times bestselling author Sabrina York about the bold, brawny men of the Highlands-and the lovely lasses who bring them to their knees…
Highlanders are her weakness. Hannah Dounreay has no time for suitors who only seem interested in her family’s land, which she manages as well as any man. If she marries, she wants to be loved for the educated, independent woman she is. But when a strong, silent-and spectacularly handsome-Highlander saves her from a violent attack, her heart is stirred. Who is this man? And if he asks for Hannah’s hand, will she be able to resist him?
Love is the most powerful weapon of all. Alexander Lochlannach, Laird of Dunnet, has no time to lose. The Highlands are in an uproar as clans battle for land-without mercy-and Alexander can’t afford to fall for the wildly attractive, strong-willed Hannah. What’s more, he has a desperate secret, one that could destroy them both. But as their attraction turns into an all-consuming passion, Alexander has no choice but to prove to Hannah that he’s the only man for her-body and soul…in Hannah and the Highlander.
Yes, if we’re going to have a highlander we especially like them bold and brawny and this book delivers him and his brother. Alexander is the strong silent type, literally, it is one characteristic that has Hannah baffled. He does not talk except in short sentences or single words. But the chemistry between them is electric and so she is willing to wait out the chance for conversation. Alexander is so overwhelmed with love at first sight that every time they are together he can hardly speak. Lana, Hannah’s sister, has a sixth sense and she communicates with the dead. Since they are in an ancient castle there are enough ghosts to keep her occupied and to give her hints on how to go about helping Hannah adjust to the problems that crop up.
I enjoyed this marriage of convenience that becomes true love. It is also about the adjustment of two people in a marriage. The side characters are well developed. We look forward to their story in this new series. This is a must read for all who love those highland Lairds and lasses, for there is a swoon worthy hero and a smart feisty heroine who saves the day.
