The highly-engaging plot involves Connor, who arranges to marry Diedre for the strong political alliance it will bring him. However, when he discovers Diedre has slept with the enemy, he steals her sister, Brina, instead. The only problem (aside from the fact that he steals a human being) is that Brina is promised to the church. She's been groomed for the life of a nun although it doesn't take too long for Connor to arouse some unholy feelings in her.
The interplay between the two is so much fun and they have that 'spark'. What I also enjoy about Mary's writing is the little historical tidbits she slips in along the way. I don't know about you, but I enjoy a strong historical component in my historical romances.
I highly recommend this memorable read. It's the most entertaining book I've read in a while.
And I'm not only saying that because Mary Wine is my mentor in Kensington Brava's Writing with the Stars contest. While that is the reason I first picked up one of her books, I bought Highland Hellcat because I was really excited to read it.
