Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2015
I am giving Bedding the Enemy 4 stars instead of 5. I didn't like what poor Helena endured at the hands of her crazed brother Edmond Knyvett, future Earl of Kenton. Him beating and hitting on her and the attack on her by his crazed friend Lord Ronchford was a bit much. The bases of this story is Helena being munipulated by her brother to use at the Royal Court to obtain and advantage. He is a English Lord and he hate Scots. But this is the Royal Court of King James Stuart, who is a Scot. The English Lords look down on the Scots and think they are stupid and under them. So when Edmond loses his money and his sister Helena an her dowry to the newly minted Baron Hurst, Laird Keir McQuade in a card game he doesn't take it well. Edmond is always plotting. In this book his scheming has caught up with him.
We meet Keir in bk2 In The Warriors Bed. His father and older brothers raid and steal from the other clans. There evil ways catch up with them in bk 2and in bk3 Keir is the new Laird. Keir McQuade. Keir was always likable and he proves he is honorable and not like his father and brothers. Keir decides to bring respectability to the McQuade name and Clan. He an his retainers head for London to swear his fealty to King James and to find a respectable bride from a good noble family; that will help bring respectability to the McQuade Clan.
Keir meets Helena at court and immediately they are attracted to each other. Her brother plots an scheme not to honor his wager to Keir. This plot point results in a pager turner to find out how they get there HEA!! Keir and Helena are a wonderful couple and compliment each other. They have quite a few erotic scenes in the book. I really enjoyed reading Bedding the Enemy!!
