I enjoyed both these character's in book 1 and was even more taken with them in this novel. This could easily be 5 stars except for how many times the author got the name of the book in the story. It was vixen this and vixen that got old quickly. Plus how many times they got married got to be a joke! Not even counting the kidnappings. But, I did enjoy the story line and character's so gave it 4 stars.
There is rape, off page but talked about, not the act itself but wanted readers to be aware .
There is descriptive lovemaking (within marriage) but because I was rooting for this couple to finally come together , it was full of passion for me. The romance certainly built slowly and I enjoyed the banter back and forth.
It was nice to meet up with the characters in book 1 that also brought humor for our H . in this story he got paid back for how he treated his brother and bride in book 1 that had me smiling.
We do get HEA and no cliffhanger -yea. I know when there is a series, u must read the previous book. I am torn with stating that here because there is a small back story of our two main character's in this book that u will benefit in knowing, but the author does touch on it in this book. But, in book 1 you r treated with more of the banter which I enjoyed.
As usually, not repeating the premise just what u will discover reading it. I do recommend this story (ljb)
This book was a little different I think from how Mary Wine usually writes but there were a few sub plots that needed to be told so that the reader could have a full picture and background of the characters, and their relationships or interactions with each other. Granite the main focus was on Helen and Marcus, but there were a lot of people involved in their marriage happening, or not taking place, so the characters connection to the main couple really needed to be told and explained. It was also enjoyed and greatly appreciated when Wine took the time to tie up all the lose ends with other characters such as Katherine, Brenda, Braic and Ailis.
I loved the story and was happy to see Marcus receive a little get back from Braic after all the shenanigans he pulled when Braic and Ailis were courting and married.
Definitely check the book out for yourselves. It's a book you will enjoy and won't want to put it down.
If the first book was a funny play between two unwilling partners, the second book introduced us also to the cruelty towards women. Honestly, I don't read a romance book so I can feel upset. I know exactly how cruel men were and are to women, especially sexually. I don't need to read it in a book I bought to relax.
That is my reason for giving the book 2 stars but Mrs Wine's writings is good, the story still had a few good points although certain acts kept repeating (Helen keeps being stolen from he husband).

I enjoyed the back and forth between highlander and War Chief for the Macpherson clan, Marcus MacPherson (a man of few words) and feisty highland lass Helen Grant, the sizzle between the two was apparent, even as Helen resisted. I do wish Marcus had been more attentive (even indirectly) to Helen from the start, after all he’s the one who bloody kidnapped her.
The main villain in this is a power hunger despot, who I hope gets his just desserts soon, and if there is any justice it will be at, both, the hands of the women and highlander men he uses like pawns.
Things I had issues with in this book, to varying degrees:
1) Where was the description of the heroine, first I thought my brain had switched off but nope, we never get a real physical description of her (or did I really miss it)?
2) How many times can a person be kidnapped? I thought I was going to get mental whiplash.
3) Why did it feel like the heroine, hero and everyone else forgot about Brenda, who was still at court suffering?! This was one key thing that seriously irked me.
That being said despite the aforementioned issues, I didn’t find myself potently peeved or wanting to rant -why, why? Maybe it’s the mood I was in, I don’t know but this was a nice, easy, one time read through the weekend and start of the week. I think I’ll read book 1 and 3 in the series, but honestly, I’m in no rush. That being said I do enjoy the author’s writing style and the way in which the main characters banter, so I will be going to another book by the author, from a different series sometime in the coming week/weekend.
Triggers: Heroine is hit by one or more of her kidnappers (kidnappers have slightly blurred in my mind). Rape is eluded to/mentioned indirectly (what happens to Brenda at court is rape, as far as I’m concerned as she had no real choice).
