Seduction of a Highland Lass is engaging, enjoyable, and just wonderful to read. This read is part of a trilogy I am thoroughly enjoying. I have not been able to put this book down. I read this one right after the first one. Keely is a little spitfire and Alaric is the hero we all search for in our own lives. You will hunger for the next portion of the trilogy as you are consuming this read. Thank you, Maya Banks. You have made reading sexy again.
