Munro MacLawry has always lived up to his nickname “Bear.” Strong and brawny, he’s known in his clan to be fiercely protective. Sadly for him, each of his siblings becomes “less highlander” as they get married, and Bear is left rowdy and alone with no one to protect. That is, until a routine hunt leads to the most alluring of creatures…

Catriona MacColl doesn’t care to amuse the brash, strong, and sexy highlander she stumbles upon in the woods. She’s too busy hiding with her sister from marriage into English society. Already well-equipped with a bull’s-eye shot, she doesn’t need a protector, no matter how badly her body burns for him. But as Cat’s boyish nature gives way to her more feminine desires, she’ll have to stop fighting the tide and listen to her heart…

Review:

Bear is definitely one hot Scot! This is the last MacLawry to fall in love and it definitely a fun ride. Munro (aka. Bear) has always chose rowdy fun over romance until he meets Catriona but it’s not your typical courtship, with hid-outs, secrets and two lovable but stubborn people who don’t want to fall in love.

I love the chemistry between Bear and Cat. It starts off with some bantering and snark (of the good variety).

“Aye. Come test me again, big man. I’ll nae be so polite next time.” If this was her being polite , seeing her rude would be quite the spectacle.”

&

“I’m nae a gentleman,” he returned from close behind her. “I am tired of being shot at, and I reckoned kissing ye might stopper the unladylike curses ye were spewing at me.”

Cat is kind of a tom-boy and doesn’t need a man in her life, but Bear keeps tries to insert himself into Cat’s life, while she’s trying to protect her sister. But as they spend more time together (and Bear busts out his charm), there’s lots of fun banter and cute moments.

“Ye smell like fresh pine.”

“Is that a compliment?” she queried, unable to keep a smile from touching her mouth.

“Aye. Give me a moment if you want a prettier one.”

I was actually really sad and disappointed that Bear’s family annoyed the heck out me. They kept pushing for Bear to settle down when he didn’t want to and really judged him all the time (except Winnie!). And that’s why I liked the way Cat and Bear’s relationship was developed because it wasn’t suddenly Bear was out of characters for finding someone to love. I liked that Cat was so supportive and was on the same page as Bear.

Overall, it was a fun romance in Highlands with an endearing couple and a little mystery, with a run-away brides, secrets, and more Highlanders!

  1. I like that Cat is a tomboy. I haven’t tried this author..but could fall for a Scot!

    1. Me too! I’ve been loving her Scottish Highlands series, haven’t gotten into her Regency ones yet! She’s definitely worth checking out!
