A SCANDALOUS TEMPTATION

Andrew Lochlannach is famous for his conquests, on and off the battlefield. When a fellow warrior challenges him to a kissing contest, he wastes no time in planting his lips on ninety-nine lovely lasses—an impressive feat of seduction that gets him banished to the farmlands. Still, Andrew has no regrets about his exploits—especially his embrace with the most beguiling woman he’s ever met…

AN UNDENIABLE PASSION

With flaming red hair and a temper to match, Susana is not the kind of innocent farmgirl who gives herself over easily to a man, even one as ruggedly handsome as Andrew. The wicked Scot may have won a kiss from the headstrong beauty in a moment of mutual desire, but Susana refuses to be just another one of his conquests. Andrew must convince the fiery lass that even though he is not playing a game, losing her is not an option…

Review:

Another awesome Scottish highlander historical with an unexpected second chance romance. Andrew Lochlannach is sent to Dounreay Castle by his brother (Alex of Hannah and the Highlander) to protect Hannah’s father and sister Susana. It’s an instant attraction for Andrew. Susana on the hand, isn’t so willing to let go of her control of the castle or her feelings for Andrew. It’s a bit of rough start for the two of them, but with banter galore, it gets pretty darn cute pretty quickly!

“Working together. Do you no’ think, with our combined brilliance, we could outstrategize any villain?”

She tipped her chin to the side. “Are you saying I’m brilliant?”

“I’m saying you are verra brilliant. And clever and beautiful.”

“You’re not so bad yourself.”

He chuckled. “Doona overwhelm me with compliments.”

“I wouldna dare.”

I liked Andrew, he’s pretty different from his brother. Andrew is handsome and charming, and he knows it so it was fun to see him have to work a little harder to win over Susana. Also, I liked that he got grow as a character and be a man that his family can depend on. Susana is lovely. She’s strong and brave, super badass with a bow, and an awesome mom to a ridiculously sassy an hilarious 5 year old. Let me tell you about Isobel, the 5 year old wonder. She is fantastic and creates chaos wherever she goes. She’s easily  my favourite character of the series so far.

It was quite fun, so she bonked the other man, even though he was already asleep. Pleased with her work, she skipped over to Hamish.

“What are you doing?” he hissed.

She fluttered her lashes. “Saving you.” […]

He stepped out and started at her in bewilderment. “Are you certain you’re a child?”

The story is fairly fasted pace with unwanted suitors, bad guys trying to take over Dounreay Castle, scheming, kidnappings and some surprising and not-so surprising revelations.

Overall, the second book to York’s Untamed Highlanders is a cute and entertaining read. We get a quick visit from Alex and Hannah and a little sag-way into the third book (Lana and the Laird!), definitely can’t wait for more!
