Setting: Scottish Highlands, early 1200s
Sensuality Rating: 7

Shortly before she is to take her nun's vows, Meredith Munro is kidnapped from the Connyridge Priory by a man who seems to hate her as much as he is determined to take her. Cameron MacKay, the last of a once powerful clan, burns with the need for revenge against the Clan Munro, whom he blames for the murder of his father and six brothers. As the beloved daughter of Red Angus Munro, Meredith is the perfect tool. Who better to provide the MacKays with an heir and a chance for their clan's survival but the only child of his worst enemy? But Cameron is surprised by the resistance he encounters in this one small woman, and reluctantly recognizes her incandescent beauty and plucky courage. The captor is soon captivated by his lovely prisoner. And together, Cameron and Meredith heal the wounds of memories too long suffered alone and reunite two clans wrapped in a blood feud for centuries. --Alison Trinkle

His Wicked Ways has a strong (but not obnoxious) heroine who is in no way ordinary, a back story which is compelling but doesn't get in the way of the love story, and of course a wonderful hero. Both the hero and the heroine have secrets of their own, which are slowly brought to light by the author, like layers being peeled from a (very good) onion. Meredith and Cameron were both wounded, intriguing, complex, wonderful characters. The action/suspense was fast-paced and thrilling. The setting was beautiful and exotic. The sex was HOT and perfect for the story. His Wicked Ways is a cut way above the typical historical romance. Wonderful love story, great characters with an emotionally scarred hero and strong but vulnerable heroine, unique setting, intriguing plot, edge-of-your-seat pacing, heart-tugging emotion, excellent writing, intense sensual love scenes, and a superb ending. This was just the kind of romance novel I love. Wonderful characters. Characters that seems real because they are not perfect-something most novels like this lack.

This book had everything you need to create a good romance: a dashing hero, a beautiful heroine and, most of all...PASSION! Samantha James developed Meredith and Cameron's personalities and motivations very convincingly, to the point where you feel as though you know them well enough to be friends by the time you finish the book. His Wicked Ways was an emotional roller coaster, and I felt all the pain and joy they did. I was so engrossed, I read it in a day. The love scenes are ample & steamy, and the plot is a good one. A fast paced book with an intricate plot that I cannot help but enjoy. His Wicked Ways is a cut way above the typical historical romance.

It's true that this books name is not very fitting. The hero is not wicked. But it still is a wonderful book. A sweet passionate love story. I wish my husband was more like Cameron.

Meredith was raped so she locks herself in a convent and is ready to take her vows. She has no idea who it was in her clan who did this to her. Cameron steals her and fakes her death because he believes her father killed his brothers and his dad. He can not bring himself to kill an innocent so takes her back to live with his clan as his prisoner. Mederith has a hard time adjusting because everyone blames her for what they believe her dad did. Especially knowing she will have to live there the rest of her life, since they never intend to let her father know she is alive. Cameron and Meredith struggle to find common ground as they fall in love. She wants him to let her dad know she is alive, because she knows her dad and that he would not do what Cameron said. Cameron is sure he saw her dad and will not give in as he wants her dad to suffer. The person who rapes Meredith before the book begins attempts to rape her again at the end. So those who are sensitive to this sort of thing should be aware of it. About halfway though the book she also descripts to Cameron what happened.

It's a great story. Good plot and great characters. Meredith and Cameron are both great, and of course Egan and Glenda are there, as this sets up for the next book. His Wicked Promise where they are the hero and heroine.

Sex content High.

Now she is kidnapped by three very virile men who also happen to be her clan's enemies who have made it appear that she has died to make her father suffer. Cameron is stunned by his attraction to his enemy's daughter and devises a scheme to ease his longing and give him the revenge he so desperately wants, force Meredith to give him a son.

As she starts seeing the gentle side of Cameron she starts falling in love with him and hopes for a peaceful conclusion to her situation. She knows that her father could never have done the things they claim he did.

When the truth finally comes out about what happened to her, Cameron vows to keep her safe and make her understand he will never hurt her. Meredith is shunned by the inhabitants of the keep because of her clan, until they start seeing the gentle spirit inside. Soon Cameron and Meredith are married and she pregnant, but they still do not trust one another enough to declare love. The pair will never be happy as long as the feud stands between them but can Cameron let go of the hatred of the murderers of his family.

This was a sensual, wonderful Scottish Romance. It had everything that makes a story great, romance, suspence, action and good characters.

I should have been enthralled with this story, the set up is good, would be nun is captured for revenge by bold Highlander. I think I had problems with this novel because it moved slowly in the beginning and both characters were not very communicative with each other.

The story opens with Meredith Munroe, an almost nun, being captured by feuding laird Cameron MacKay. He makes it appear as if she has committed suicide so that Meredith's father will mourn her death. Cameron has a real vendetta, his father and six brothers were killed by the MacKays.

Of course, Meredith does not believe her father had anything to do with this heinous act and vehemently states this to the angry Cameron. I think part of the problem I had with Meredith was she was not altogether very diplomatic with her tone or language with a deeply greiving Cameron. Obviously he is in mourning but there is very little condolences given by Meredith. She is also way stubborn, preferring to be physically in pain rather than ask for help or admit she is wrong.

Meredith was a rape victim and she is frightened and angry. Her desire to keep Cameron at a distance is certainly understandable but her sense of self righteousness got on my nerves when she would let him know his sins. I guess as an almost nun she felt she had the right to tell him what his sins were. Meredith constantly berates herself for being weak, but I never saw this with Cameron. She more than stands her own against him.

Cameron is hostile at first but when they arrive at his keep, he becomes more open and caring. He decides the best way to heal from his ordeal is for Meredith to give him a son and shockingly she agrees to bear him a child so that she can leave the keep.
