Review and Giveaway: Seduced by a Highlander by Paula Quinn

 His kiss is her undoing...




SINS THAT CAN’T BE FORGIVEN

Tristan MacGregor is famed throughout the Highlands as a silver-tongued seducer and an unrepentant rogue. Bold and charming, he’s dallied with many women, yet none as beguiling and mysterious as the lass he steals a kiss from at the king’s court. Little does he know this beauty is one of his clan’s greatest enemies.

PASSION THAT CAN’T BE DENIED

Isobel Fergusson has despised the bloodthirsty MacGregors ever since they murdered her father. When she learns the handsome stranger who melted her resistance is a MacGregor, she vows to forget him. But Tristan means to possess her at any cost and Isobel’s body turns traitor at his touch. Can a man she’s sworn to hate be the only one she can ever love?  description taken from the back of the book.



Hachette sent me Seduced by a Highlander by Paula Quinn to review.  I have her other book, the first in The Children Of The Mist series, Ravished By A Highlander.  Seduced is the second book in the series, so if you have yet to read Ravished, then you haven't missed too many and can check up quickly!

This book reminds me of a classic Romeo and Juliet story.  Tristian's family and Isobel's family are in a fued (like most Scots seem to be way back when) because of a childhood misunderstanding.  Meeting, and not knowing who the other is, they fall for each other.  Yet, when learning Isobel's name, Tristian knows he needs to back off. 

Quinn wrote a wonderful second book to her Children Of The Mist series.  Seduced was so funny and just a great love story!  I really enjoed it and cannot wait to see what Quinn comes up with next.

I forgot to answer the question! I like Scottish romances simply because I feel they're a bit different than the ones that take place in England or Ireland but I'm not sure why I feel that way.

To find my very own Highlander, I would beg any handsome young man to be my tour guide. They'd have to help the poor, dumb young lady that gets easily lost (I'll give the impression of weakness) because they're so nice.

After getting to know me, they'll of course fall in love/lust with me and before you know it I'll have him in a kilt modeling only for me.

Bonus entry question from your feedburner email, "If you were going to go to Scotland in search of your prince charming, what type of approach would you use to find and win over your highlander?"

If I somehow met a highlander who caught my fancy and I wanted to marry him, I'd try to get a job as maid or something in his household so I could get close to him, if ya know what I mean.
