Highland Heat (Hot Highlanders Book 3) Kindle Edition
Praise for To Conquer a Highlander:
"Not to be missed." -Lora Leigh, New York Times bestselling author of Lion's Heat
Ruined, Betrayed, and banished...
As brave as she is impulsive, Deirdre Chattan's tendency to follow her heart and not her head has finally tarnished her reputation beyond repair. But when powerful Highland Laird Quinton Cameron finds her, he doesn't care about her past-it's her future he's about to change...
But it's never too late for redemption...
From the moment Quinton sets eyes on Deirdre Chattan, rational thought vanishes. For in her eyes he sees a fiery spirit that matches his own, and he'll be damned if he'll let such a wild Scottish rose wither under the weight of a nun's habit...
With nothing to lose, Deirdre and Quinton band together to protect king and country. But what they can accomplish alone is nothing compared to what they can build with their passion for each other...
What readers say about Mary Wine's Scottish romance:
"Scottish Highlands, rugged and virile warriors-there is nothing like it."
"Plenty of romance, action, intrigue, and danger."

There is a storyline which starts out interesting. A young noblewoman in 1400's Scotland is placed in a convent by her disapproving father and faces a bleak future. This clever and intelligent woman helps the Queen escape her own problems and both women gain some freedom. Had this premise been the main focus of the book, it could have been very interesting. However, from then on it became sex at the expense of story. Sex sells so I assume the delighted reviewers like this emphasis. I look for story so I don't like this at all.
I would have liked there to be another book about Roan McLead getting Deirdre's half sister, and finding out what happens between Deirdre's father and the mother of her half sisters. Also I wanted to stated that part of the description for this book is not really true. "With nothing to lose, Deirdre and Quinton band together to protect king and country." This is the second description on one her books that is not really true. This one is a little more than the other one, but still not to the indent that they state it.
Sex content high.
Highland Heat takes place after Scotland's James I has been assassinated (within nine years ),a Douglas is guardian of the young King, and Joan Beaufort wants to remarry. A strong few Highlanders fear an invasion of Scotland by England due to in-fighting among the clans. In order to present a united front to England and greater aligned clans, four Lairds Lairds are to marry to form strong alliances among the clans. Laird Quinton Cameron ( the only nobleman, Earl of Liddell ) wishes a dalliance with Deirdre Chattan. Deirdre , Laird Chattan's eldest daughter has fallen from grace. Thinking herself in love with Melor Douglas, he seduces her and then casts her aside. Melor, the Douglas heir, just wanted to humiliate Connor Lindsey by despoilng his betrothed. Connor is furious after spending two years working out the marriage contract. Conner, now married to the youngest Chattan, is settled. Disgraced, Deirdre, goes to live at the Convent. With no dowery and her innocence gone, she is resigned to her future. She meets Queen Joan one night when the Queen requests sanctuary until she can meet up with her love. Noticing a similarity in appearance, the Queen talks Deirdre into masquerading as her. This would allow the Queen more time to escape her pursuers. Unfortunately, Lord Cameron's lead captain captures Deirdre ( thinking her the Queen ) and takes her to the Laird. Indignant at not being freed, Deirdre, does everything she can to anger Cameron enough that he might let her go. No way! The Laird wants the stubborn feisty woman and decides to keep her."Oh, bugger me!" No ! Wait ! That was the last book,"Highland Hellcat".Ok, right book now.
I find the H/h believable, passionate, and colorful ! The plot (aside from the romance) is engaging. A few of the secondary characters, Coalan, comes to mind, need their own book. Please ? I shall gladly continue to read my new best author. So y'all join me. You will not be displeased. Thank you, Mary Wine . BTW, Amazon and the publisher's free offers are a great way to discover other writers.
