Bound to a Highlander by Kerri M. Patterson
Rosin McPherson did not want to go into an arranged marriage with the laird of her clan’s enemy, but her family insisted it was the only way to save their clan from all of the fighting between the two. Rosen agrees to the union after her father was killed in a raid.
When Rosen’s husband is poisoned on their wedding night, Rosen is accused of his murder. To keep her safe until he finds out the truth behind the poisonings that were happening to different members of his clan, her husband’s brother, Gabhran McBray agrees to be handfasted to Rosen. Rosen is locked away in a drafty cell for a time, but manages to escape to a cabin not far from the keep. Gabhran finds her there and the two of them spend some time alone together. Gabhran tries to keep his distance because he misses his wife, who died several years before, but he is weak and can’t keep his hands off of Rosen.
Once they return to the keep, they find out more people have been poisoned. Gabhran works on finding out who the culprit is while Rosen figures out how to clear herself from suspicion. In the mean time, they are falling in love and can’t keep their hands off of each other.
This was a very good book. I really hope the author does sequels because some of the other characters need their stories told as well. Highlander romance books are my favorite and this one does not disappoint. There was just the right amount of steam in the sex scenes. There were a few typos, but nothing took away from the story. I give this one a 4.8 out of 5 stars!
