Fiercely loyal to his elder brother, Alaric McCabe leads his clan in the fight for their birthright. Now he is prepared to wed for duty, as well. But on his way to claim the hand of Rionna McDonald, daughter of a neighboring chieftain, he is ambushed and left for dead. Miraculously, his life is saved by the soft touch of a Highland angel, a courageous beauty who will put to the test his fealty to his clan, his honor, and his deepest desires.

An outcast from her own clan, Keeley McDonald was betrayed by those she loved and trusted. When the wounded warrior falls from his horse, she is drawn to his strong, lean body. The wicked glint in his green eyes ignites a passion that will follow them back to Alaric’s keep, where their forbidden love draws them deeper into the pleasures of the flesh. But as conspiracy and danger circle closer, Alaric must make an impossible choice: Will he betray his blood ties for the woman he loves?

Banks can sure yank emotional strings.

Thoughts on Seduction of a Highland Lass

Sometimes you just need a book to escape in, and Maya Banks does escape books that will curl your toes and hit the spot. Hit all your spots, if you know what I mean. I was having one of those days where I was sick and tired and sick and tired of being sick and tired. Guys, I love books on those kinds of days. I may not have been any less sick and tired, but I sure as hell felt better with a book to get lost in.

I’m going to go ahead and admit that this is cheesy. Like, really. AND I AM OKAY WITH THAT. Listen. Escape books are all about the cheese. When you need something to dive into, you don’t want serious. You want mushy love with a side of extra hot lovin’. Maya Banks does that will skill. I liked Alaric. I liked Keeley. Their situation flayed me because SO MANY EMOTIONS AND WOE, WOE, WOE.

Highlanders are fun. I like this series for the historical setting, the sex, and the emotions. The brothers are tight and loyal and THEY LOVE THEIR WOMEN. I want to dive right into the next book so I can see what happens with Caelen and Rionna. Because, man. Alaric is awesome, but he left things pretty messy in his wake.

And I need more books to escape into.

  1. I keep hearing all kinds of awesome about these men and their lack-of-kilts. If I only could get a few more series piled up on my shelf in the record books, I could squeeze a little time travel in sooner than later.

    Yea! For the perfect escape.

  2. I love these kinds of books for those kinds of days, too. They’re perfect escapes, sending you back to a time when men were men and the sheep were afraid…ha. Kidding. Totally. But, really, I do so love these kinds of books and Maya Banks is one of the best!
