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…
At A Glance
Loved the main characters.
Bear and Cat really made this book. They are lovable characters through and through. The magnetism between these two was off the charts.
Cat was raised like a boy so she swore, hunted, and wore trousers. Gotta love a historical tomboy. She is spirited as all get out and very protective of her little sister who is running from a potential bad marriage. She thinks she can control everything but Bear shows her how wrong she is. He inserts himself into her life for reasons even unbeknownst to him. He is the only single man left in his family and he likes it that way. But Cat makes him feel something foreign, something tingly.
These two have some fun times bickering and fighting each other the whole book. Secrets are kept and when revealed they change everything. I love that in the end it wasn’t just these two deciding to be together, it was them fighting other people to be together. It was a nice change up. But Cat and Bear knew they were meant for each other and they were willing to lose everything to keep their love going.
The Scottish brogue was hard to get use too. I usually don’t have a problem in this area but it was hard to understand in this book.
I really disliked Bear’s family. They all got their HEAs despite the trouble it brought the clan and family, but Bear wasn’t allowed the same privilege. I would have been done with them if it were me.
Who doesn’t love hist-rom sexing? Loved the curiosity and passion in each sex scene. So sexy.
A really good historical romance over all. The main characters were super likable and the story kept thinks interesting. I wish I could have liked Bear’s family more, but whatever. Recommended.
“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.”
“Taking her shoulder, he turned her to face him and gave her a soft, slow kiss. “Ye can call me yer mattress, lass, but dunnae ferget the poky bits.”
“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.”
