Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Wine (To Conquer a Highlander) deftly constructs another well-rounded Scottish historical. The older Chattan sisters are destined for arranged marriages, but high-spirited Brina was raised to be a bride of Christ. Then handsome laird Connor Lindsey kidnaps Brina to be his wife after her sister Deirdre is disgraced. Even as the aptly described œhellcat  begins to fall for her captor, she refuses to betray either her father's wishes or her own high standards: œIf I fail to honor his word, how could ye ever accept any promise I made to you?  Gentle Connor, scarred by his difficult childhood, slowly introduces Brina to passion and love in a series of ardent encounters. Wine's fans will anticipate the final dramatic turn of events as much as the happy ending, where all loose ends are tied up and no hearts are left broken.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Readers first met the hero, Connor Lindsey, in To Conquer a Highlander where he was a charismatic rogue who was setting off to claim his rumored wayward betrothed bride. This book, Highland Hellcat, begins with Connor finding that his bride is no longer pure and in a dilemma of how to keep a critical clan alliance while satisfying the demands of the clan that relies on him to lead them during precarious times.

I was looking forward to this story because of the hero....to see him get his day in the sun so to speak...going from an intriguing secondary character to primary hero. Unfortunately, I felt that Connor took the backseat to his heroine Brina, and the book focused more on her and her motivations than Connor's. I was disappointed that so much of the focus of the book was on Brina....even though I did like her as a heroine.

Much of the story is dedicated to Brina, and her unwavering belief that she cannot marry Connor (even though she grows to love him) without her father's consent and be able to keep her honor. Honor is very important to Brina. Honor, honor, honor. By the end of the book I wanted her to throw her honor out the window. I was frustrated by the need to reiterate this again and again. Instead I wished the reader would have been given more moments where Brina realized the freedom that fate has gifted her with instead of being given to a convent. I wanted her to realize that her training to become a mother superior wasn't in vain, that she could employ that training as the laird's wife...and all of the power and good she could do in that role.

This is book 2 in a series of highlanders, but you can just jump right in here. The hero in this book is mentioned in book 1 since he is a friend of that hero, but the couple from book 1 is not mentioned here. Only the hero that will be in book 3. So, no OCD troubles, you all know I like to talk about that.

Connor Lindsay is planned to marry Deirdre Chattan, but she has been naught and he is upset but still need the alliance but without people doubting if his children are his. So he does what every good highlander would do, kidnaps her virtuous sister that is on her way to a convent. Sparks will fly.

Yay more bride stealing business, this one should be called the bride stealing series. I do like those rugged highlanders stealing brides, but only if they are nice to them. And Connor at once see that Brina is more than just a meek woman raised to be a nun, she can hunt, and she is a hellcat. But at the same time she has learnt nothing about men, and every touch makes her skittish. But who would not melt when a handsome man in a kilt sets out to seduce her, and he is so honourable too, he wants to marry her, but it's she who says no. She has promised her father to become a nun. I do like that it's he who wants her so much, and she who wants to keep that promise.

A lot of other things are happening too, her father is upset, a daughter of his must become a bride of Christ, one sister is not happy about her upcoming marriage, there is the Deirdre scandal (and she is the heroine of book 3, I wonder if her man will steal her away). A neighbouring clan has Connor's sister captive, and he fears they will attack his lands. But mostly it is a about a woman and a man, falling in love, finding passion, and trying to figure out how they can be together.

I purchased this book after reading "To conquer a highlander" which was offered to Kindle readers for free. I loved "To conquer a Highlander" and highly recommend it. For pure weekend escapism, I rate this book four stars. For a deeper story that pulls me in and makes me care (which I know Mary Wine is capable of) I give it three stars. I agree with the other reviewer about being excited to hear Connor's story and then dissapointed that he didn't get a fair chance to tell it. Yes, Highlanders are manly men, but who wants to read about only that? A compelling character is made by revealing the tough guy's secret desires and fears through backstory and inner dialogue and then ultimately, resolving those with his true love. The author did talk a little about Connor's abandonment as a youth early in the book but then it was completely subsumed by Brina's story. Yes, she was an interesting character, but not at Connor's expense. Was she a hellcat simply because she refused to be kidnapped and offered her captors a chase and bruised shins? Any 15th century virgin would have put up more of a fight and earned a less violent nickname. She's anxious of being touched by a maiden while bathing, yet she lies beside her high-octane highlander while he strokes her thigh and is content. What the hell? I felt her sheltered upbringing and his overpowering maleness had exciting potential for an explosive first consumation. Boy was I dissappointed. Later sex scenes could have been more sensitively written to include discovery and fears overcome, but they were swept in a storm of bliss and mutual climax. Hmm, boring.
