I could not put this book down. Great romance, sexy characters, and the beautiful scenery of Scotland. What more could a reader ask for? It was near perfect for me. The only downside was that it had to end. After I read this book I bought and read the first book in this series In Bed With a Stranger. Loved it! You don't have to read it before reading this one, but I highly recommend that you do. Mary Wine is now on my list of "auto buy" authors like Kleypas, Quinn, and Kinsale.

I always enjoy finding new authors that are writing in a favorite setting. However, every so often I find a dud and this is it. It was like the author wasn't sure whether she wanted to write a medieval or a reformation period book. The use of historical references seemed to distract rather than enhance the story (we didn't need to know every time they sat in "x" chair)

As to the depth of the actual story, at most times it was a lot of long drawn out sex scenes (not all that interesting) with a bit of story to break them up. The conflict was superficial most of the time and the story would have been better if the conflict had more sexual tension, not just sex. The conflict seemed way too one-sided making it only an average romance.

Also confusing to this reader was all the secondary characters, they seemed to have little purpose taking away from the spaced needed to tell the heroine/hero's story. Clearly this is a second book in a series and there appears to be some foreshadowing for future stories but this foreshadowing shouldn't take over the story at hand. I was waiting for more story to send the reader on to the next book in the series and yet nothing.

If I didn't know better I would have thought this a first book, and though I know the author has nothing to do with the cover I have to wonder if the publisher even read the description of the heroine. Find it used, if you must read it.

In The Warrior's Bed is the story of Cullen McJames and Bronwyn McQuade to warring clans. Laird McQuade has gone to the court of James of Scotland accusing Cullen of seducing an spoiling his daughter Bronwyn. Bronwyn and Cullen were spotted chatting on the line were there broaders met by her two older brothers Liam and Sadoc. The brothers reported this to there father who always desiped Bronwyn because she was born a girl her was cruel and treated worst then one of the servants.

After being mad aware of his name being sullied before the court and James of Scotland Cullen visits the court and tell James what happened. Jame believes him and not Laird McQuade and sanctions a marriage between Bronwyn and Cullen to stop the gossip and hopefully bring peace between the two clans.

I didn't like Bronwyn much at first but she later grew on me. The story is very erotic with little romance. I found Bronwyn's character not mature enough for a 23 yrs old women. Her character would have been better served as 18 or younger. Like I said by the end of the story I grew to like her. She grow with the story. I loved Cullen!1 So all's well that ends well. I just wanted more of a storyline rather then just so many sex scenes. Sex scenes are great when there is a good story to go along with it. This was not the case for In The Warrior's Bed!!

I just finished reading this book, and was pleasantly surprised. The book was a refreshing change. The heroine in it didn't feel the need to hide too much from her feelings. There was of course the internal struggle with falling for the hero, but it was not dragged on and on, we actually got to experience the relationship in various stages. Like I said it was a refreshing switch. I usually am a stickler for starting at the start of a series and reading in order but I am glad I gave this one a chance. (Really I didn't realize it was #2, lol) I am now going to read the others in this series.

Happy Reading!!!

It was a good book. I would rate it a 4.5 star. The one thing I would have liked to see more of is them get to know each other. They didn't really every talk to each other. However even with that said I liked it. It was a quick fast read as are most of her books. They are not in-depth books if you are looking for that thing. I like Bronwyn and I find the boyish side of Cullen charming.

On a side note, once again I find I am disappointed Bonnie's live is not resolved. She makes a point of stating that Alarik McKorey likes her, but her proxy marriage to the cruel Cameron Yeoman is still valid So he just get drunk to forget it. That is all there is on this subject. I have little hopes about in being resolved in the last book, as it is about Bronwyn's brother, and not the McJames. At most you would have hoped for another book about these two, but that is not the case. In stead like in The Highlander Series it seemed like she set you up for a fourth book, but only did three.

Sex content high.
