Synopsis

A Lord Not Meant to Marry

Hamish MacRae, a changed man, returned to his beloved Scotland intending to turn his back on the world. The proud, brooding lord wants nothing more than to be left alone, but an unwanted visitor to his lonely castle has defied his wishes. While it is true that this healer, Mary Gilly, is a beauty beyond compare, it will take more than her miraculous potions to soothe his wounded spirit. But Mary’s tender heart is slowly melting Hamish’s frozen one… awakening a burning need to keep her with him—forever.

A Lady Who Dares Not Love

Never before has Mary felt such an attraction to a man! The mysterious Hamish MacRae is strong and commanding, with a face and form so handsome it makes Mary tremble with wanting him. Already shadowy forces are coming closer, heartless whispers and cruel rumors abound, and it will take a love more pure and powerful than any other to divine the truth—and promise a future neither had dreamed possible.

My Review

Mary Gilly, is a healer, and has been studying medicine most of her life. Mary is a widow, and she MacRae and help him with his injuries. Hamish MacRae has suffered torture and is scarred both inside and out, and enjoys his solitude. The last thing that he needs is a interfering brother and a healer, he just wants to be left alone. But Mary is more stubborn than he gave her credit for, and soon tensions rise, passions build and Hamish and Mary can’t deny the desire that they feel for each other. Both of them know that they are only together for a few weeks and to make the best of it, but both Mary and Hamish need each other, and not just to make passionate love to each other. And there is a enemy that could tear them apart forever…

What a fun and sexy highlander romance. I had so much fun with this one. I just adore Karen Ranney and she always delivers amazing stories, and To Love A Scottish Lord is no different. In this installment, we have the fourth book in the series, I have read other books in the series but it has been a long time since I have read a book involving the MacRae’s and boy I see I need to get back to this series. The brothers are just awesome together, and I just adored the closeness of the family. The story is mostly centered around Mary and Hamish, and the adventures they have together and them exploring the desire they share for each other. This pair was quite unique, and I loved the element of these two accepting each other and not feeling any reluctance to just enjoy the moment in each other. Most romances you see the whole courting dance before they get to the bedroom, but in this one, that doesn’t really happen, it definitely had a different feel to the story and I really liked how this author adds some unique elements that adds a flair to the tale we have here.

Overall I had fun with this one, and this author keeps me coming back for more. If you are looking for a fun romance, with sexy playful scenes, a hero to curl you toes, a heroine to delight in, and a tale of passion and a endearing story to keep you aching for more….a rich gem to take to your heart!!
