A fierce Englishwoman on the run
A Highland Laird who needs a proper wife
And a desire neither can resist
Athena Trappes thinks she's in love...until she discovers the scoundrel only wanted her as his bit on the side. Enraged, she does what any spirited Englishwoman would do: set fire to his belongings, incur his dangerous wrath, and flee—immediately. With nowhere else to turn, she seeks freedom in the wilds of Scotland.
Highland Laird Symon Grant lost his wife years ago, and it's his duty to find another. Athena is not exactly what the clan has in mind for him, but Symon's heart burns with unexpected passion for the woman who would risk everything to be free.
Between a Highlander and a Hard Place by Mary Wine
(Highland Weddings, #5)
Highland Laird Symon Grant lost his first wife in childbirth. To keep his bloodline alive he needs to marry again, but he wants a woman with spirit. Little did he know the dancing beauty he saw and craved was a feisty Englishwoman fleeing the wrath of the man whose home she destroyed after he destroyed her dreams.
Is Athena Trappe the perfect woman to bear Symon’s children? BETWEEN A HIGHLANDER AND A HARD PLACE by Mary Wine is a wonderful, easy to read historical romance featuring a strong-willed woman who will settle for nothing less than exactly who or what she wants and an brawny Scottish Laird with the heart of an alpha and eyes only for Athena.
You have to love when the heart knows what the heart wants, damn the consequences. A quick read with some heat, a whole lot of trouble and men in kilts!
