Number three in her Highlander series; Julia London brings us the best yet.
Raised to hate the name Douglas, Mared Lockhart is forced to repay a debt owed to Payton Douglas by her family. Just because her brothers had failed to bring home the dratted beastie, which would have saved them from ruin, she must now make the ultimate sacrifice and become the bride to a Douglas!
Payton Doulgas has loved Mared since they were children. The only problem is that Mared despises everything Douglas and no matter how hard he tries to win her heart, her prejudice gets in the way. Well, now he has her where he wants her. Her family owes him a great sum of money and the only way to pay it off is for Mared to become his bride. The only thing stopping him is Mared herself. She refuses to being traded in for a debt, so Payton comes up with another plan, one that is sure to being Mared down a notch or two and hopefully he can melt her frozen heart in the meantime.
Mared is to become his housekeeper! She is to run his house, clean his floors, make his bed, wash his back…well you get the picture! For a proud Highlander like Mared, this is the lowest of the low for anyone of breeding.
When Mared falls from her ‘hi-horse’ she falls HARD and Payton is there to pick up the pieces and he sure knows how to put them back together!! When these two proud, fierce Highlanders finally make love..HOLY COW…the pages turn to flame. You can’t help but fall in love with Mared and Payton, no two more fun characters you will ever meet. Throw in a cast of secondary characters who keep things rolling right along, and you have your best pick for your summer reading.
Be sure to pick up a copy of Highlander In Love, take it to the beach and soak up some rays with Mared and Payton…you may want to keep a squirt bottle close at hand! LOL
