Never Love a Highlander

Caelen McCabe's young, reckless heart nearly destroyed his clan. Now, putting family loyalty above all else, he steps up to marry his older brother's jilted bride and salvage the uneasy alliance between two clans. While beautiful Rionna McDonald is a fit wife for any man, Caelen trusts no woman, especially not this sweet temptress who torments him with white-hot longing. As the sacrificial lamb in her father's power game, Rionna will do her duty but vows to protect her heart and her pride from humiliation.

Publisher's Summary

Caelen McCabe's young, reckless heart nearly destroyed his clan. Now, putting family loyalty above all else, he steps up to marry his older brother's jilted bride and salvage the uneasy alliance between two clans. While beautiful Rionna McDonald is a fit wife for any man, Caelen trusts no woman, especially not this sweet temptress who torments him with white-hot longing.

As the sacrificial lamb in her father's power game, Rionna will do her duty but vows to protect her heart and her pride from humiliation. Despite everything, though, the heat in Caelen's touch melts her defenses, and she craves the sensual delights of a husband who guards his emotions as fiercely as his clan. But when the ultimate battle for the McCabe legacy is upon them, Rionna's true warrior spirit emerges. She will risk the wrath of her father, the fury of her enemies, and her life to prove to Caelen that his wife's love is too precious to lose.

    "Leftovers can be the best"

    Two people who really don't want to do what they must do end up being really glad they did. Great end of a great series.

    "Obsessed with this book...LOVED IT!Last in series"

    I have a hard time writing reviews for books I adore and "Never Love a Highlander" is no exception. I come back to this book from time to time because it's such a beautiful romance. The love development between Caelen McCabe & Rionna McDonald is smoking hot and also tender and sweet!

    They are my favorite couple in the series and this book is so jam-packed with action, growth of characters, as well as sad and exhilarating moments that just leave you in awe...in awe...seriously!

    I LOVE...absolutely loved both the Hero and heroine.

    HERO: First of all, Caelen McCabe is just delicious. He is the youngest of the McCabe brothers and carries a lot of guilt over the near destruction of his clan years past. Caelen fell in love with a woman who was responsible for the near demise of his people, and family. For this reason, Caelen has sworn to never trust or love a woman again. In fact, he never planned to marry. That was before destiny put Rionna McDonald in his path.

    He steps up to marry Rionna since his brother Alaric fell in love with another woman and was the 2nd McCabe brother to reject marriage to her. Initially, it all about duty with Caelen, but love won out in the end. Caelen is very serious, grouchy, and strong-willed, but with love and patience his romance with Rionna blossoms into a steamy, scintillating napalm that is guaranteed to be an explosive combination.

    HEROINE: Rionna has been introduced in the first book and I was so excited to finally read her story. I love Rionna because she is fierce, has so much courage, and is willing to fight hard for love and clan. I felt bad for Rionna because she was rejected not ONCE but TWICE by the first two McCabe brothers. However, it all worked out the way it was meant to because Caelen was her true love match and ultimate soul mate. Rionna is the ultimate heroine because show knows what she wants and pursues it with great intensity. In regard to Caelen she wants all of his love and affection and will not give up until she melts his heart into submission. She also is a warrior...or should I say "warrior princess" who conquers the heart of her laird (love interest), her king and Scotland, as a whole.

    LOVE STORY: Since Caelen is so serious in everything in his life, you can imagine that he's serious and passionate about sex as well. Rionna is also so hungry for love that when the two come together it's HOT, HOT, HOT! The love scenes are let me see.....beautiful, powerful, amazing, touching....and just wow!!!! But this book is more than amazing sex scenes, the relationship that develops among the leads is just beautiful...very rich and deep. I was astounded with the ending when Caelen made his declaration of love before his clan, king and family....that was just tear jerking.

    ACTION: I loved the fight scene at the end. Seriously, your heart just leaps with the momentum and action. There could not have been a better ending for the villain...it was just awesome.

    NARRATOR: Kirsten Potter is talented and great at her craft. She does such a good job creating these masculine and feminine voices which are alluring and make the listen so enjoyable. It's like audible theater! Great narration!

    I'm sad it over.....
