Makenna is the wild child of the four daughters of the Dunstan Laird. She's also her father's favorite, so when her father asks her to marry her dead sister's husband, she's outraged. Colin is overbearing and arrogant...and he loved her dear dead sister Deirdr...more
After finishing this book there is only one thing for me to do and that is continue on with the next book in this series, Desiring The Highlander.
" Her mouth finally free, Makenna asked, "Colin, what's happening? I don't know what's wrong with me. My body feels to be on fire, and yet I crave more."
Snort! Please. The dude was also married to her sister first. That may be another huge no-no for me. No boinking of your...more
This was a very different book, at least to me. The premise is that these two people need to marry to save a Lowland clan. This is a common premise, that of the forced marriage at least on one person’s part, what is uncommon to me is the male protagonist was married to the female protagonist’s sister before she died. Colin loved her very much. And, it wasn't something that he kept quietly to himself. WE did hear a lot about his late wife, but you will soon...more
her husband initially forbids it, the clan doesn't think she will able to be a good "lady of the keep", the heroine rolls her sleeves up...more
At the insistence of his ailing father-in-law, Colin McTiernay is beseeched to wed the sister of his deceased wife to strengthen the Drustan clan and train the soldiers like only a Highlander could. Makenna Drustan wants no part in this arranged marriage because she's never liked her overbearing brother-in-law. However, an encounter by the loch takes both of them by surprise when desire between them flares. They reluctantly agree to marry to secure the clan from future attacks by the English. Ma...more
Connor feels about the same way towards Makenna. She’s a defiant little carper who doesn’t know a woman’s place.
What we have here is a mutual admiration society.
Makenna’s dad has invited all the lairds of all the clans hereabouts t...more
1. An interesting, intelligent heroine who is stubborn enough to maintain her sense of self but not so stubborn as to border or become petulant or stupid.
2. A hero with strength of body and sensitivity. Colin is wary of loving Makenna because he fears losi...more

Why, mostly because I was expecting to read about Makenna 'defying' Colin at first but then succumb to him eventually. But this book, their chemistry went a bit too fast. I mean, he hated her and vice versa but then snap, in the blink of an eye they're passionate. I was like really? Hmm.
But overall I enjoyed this book.
Doch Deidre starb und um den Schutz und den Fortbestand seines Clans zu sichern und Colin sicher zum nächsten Laird zu machen will Alexander, daß Colin Makenna, die jüngere Schwester von Deidre heiratet.
Weder Colin noch Makenna sind von dieser Idee besonders angetan. Makenna hält Colin für einen arroganten, kalt...more
McTiernay Kardeşler serisinin ikinci kitabı... Yazarın ilk kitabından daha güzel olduğunu düşünüyorum gerçi ilk kitabını da sevmiştim ama bunu daha çok sevdim. İskoç kitabı okumayalı bayağı olmuştu ve okuyunca işte kitap bu dedim resmen....
Yazarın kalemi çok akıcı, sade ve sürükleyici. Kitap olaylı, savaşlı, kardeş bağlılığı olan ve aşk dolu bir kitap...
Makenna, ev işlerinden anlamayan kadın olmanın ne demek olduğunu bilmeyen, leydiliğin yanından geçmemiş,...more
Now my only issue with this book is the fact that she tried (and failed) to utilize Scottish Gaelic phrases and terms of endearments in this book... Instead she butchered several words and 98% of what she...more

Colin meet his match in every way years before, but because he was married at the time he did not see it. His wife did. There is something to say for very smart wives.
Colin is the very strength and leadership her clan needs to survive He is also the man she needs to bring life's passion to her world. Mackenna has more than one seeing her for what she truly is beneath the facade. She has so much m...more
Unfortunately, the same reasons I had for downgrading the first book held true for this one. So much so that I have decided not to buy the third. This author has apparently done quite a bit of historical research - something I love - but I just can't get pa...more
What makes this stand-out from other Highlander books that I've read is that the author focused on the emotional aspects of the character/s. I should have been appalled since there was less action scenes & the sex was tedious but I connected with Collin and Mckenna that I really don't mind these flaws.
I guess I'll be putting the...more
