Publisher's Summary

Fiercely loyal to his older brother, Alaric McCabe leads his clan in the fight for their birthright. Now he is prepared to wed for duty, as well. But on his way to claim the hand of Rionna McDonald, daughter of a neighboring chieftain, he is ambushed and left for dead. Miraculously, his life is saved by the soft touch of a Highland angel, a courageous beauty who will put to the test his fealty to his clan, his honor, and his deepest desires.

An outcast from her own clan, Keeley McDonald was betrayed by those she loved and trusted. When the wounded warrior falls from his horse, she is drawn to his strong, lean body. The wicked glint in his green eyes ignites a passion that will follow them back to Alaric's keep, where their forbidden love draws them deeper into the pleasures of the flesh. But as conspiracy and danger circle closer, Alaric must make an impossible choice: Will he betray his blood ties for the woman he loves?

What the Critics Say

"The second book in Bank's trilogy shows her ability to write fast-paced, sexually charged, emotionally intense romances." (Romantic Times)

    "Wonderfull series, well worth it!"

    I’m always worried about historical novels…will they get the language right, will they hold true to the themes of the period….but since it was Maya Banks I had to take a shot, and was NOT disappointed! Wonderful story, and series, that made me laugh and made me cry. Couldn’t have asked for more!

    Story
    "Love this series"
    What did you love best about Seduction of a Highland Lass?

    I loved the story line, the sub plots, and the family dynamics of the McCabe's. There is a lot going on in this story it flows beautfully


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    always loved Calen, the youngest McCabe brother. He tries so hard to be cynical,about women and love, but you can feel deep down, he wants love more than anything.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    I was really sceptical l because she has an american accent,but that's only when she is reading a descriptive passage. But she was FANTASTIC, her Scots burr was bang on.for ALL the characters


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The most moving scene is the beginning of the wedding, When the heroine (Keeley) watches hero (Alaric) wed her childhood friend Rionna.
    It was beautiful, and so moving, this scene alone is worth the credit.


    Any additional comments?

    You will not regret downloading this book, or any book. I cannot wait until Caelen's story!!!

    "Better than the first book. Love those Highlanders"

    I was not expecting that much from this book, as I wasn't that engaged with the first novel. However, Banks has written a really lovely, sexy, heart-breaking and original highlander story. I thought the book was written and performed quite well.

    I recommend this to all the highland lovers out there! Great characters who are fleshed out and complex! A truly wonderful romance between two lovers who were never meant to be together. Full of love, honor, loyalty and strength, this book was a joy to read!

    I don't think you'll be disappointed! Can't wait for the next installment.

    Story
    "A sexy highlander treat!"

    The second installment in the McCabe series is even better than the first! The first book ended with Alaric McCabe agreeing to marry Rionna MacDonald in order to create an alliance against Duncan Cameron. On his way to the MacDonald land, Alaric is brutally attacked and left for dead. He barely escapes in his horse and is rescued by Keeley MacDonald. She is an outcast who lives alone. Keeley nurses Alaric back to health and in the process they fall madly in love. The problem is, the alliance between the McCabes and the MacDonalds is vital and urged by the King so Alaric cannot betray his clan and must marry Rionna MacDonald.

    I must say this second book is twice as steamy as the first one. There's even a highlander style bondage scene that was a-freaking-mazing! Oh I can't get enough of that highlander lovin. .. one of the things that I liked most about this story is that it kept me wondering how in the world Alaric and Keeley would be able to make their relationship work. Be warned: you will need a box of Kleenex towards the end. So emotional!

    Narration: Kirsten Potter once again did a wonderful job narrating this series. Great accent, great male voices and she added the emotion and intensity needed to take the story to the next level. This story was definitely a highlander treat and in the Top 5 historical romances I've listened to. A must listen for anyone who loves a Happily Ever After...

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Sweet Highland Series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, expecially if you liked the first book.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book in the series. I would advise you to try the first book then get this one. I have enjoyed this series very much. In fact I'm about to listen to the third one. If your a fan of highland romances then you really need to try these.

    Not to give anything away, but I was so invested in the characters; I cared about them. This is a testament to the author's storytelling abilities.

    Story
    "Oh, those Highlanders, they'll steal your heart!"

    I am afraid I am becoming a Highland stalker. This was a well written story, drawing me in from the beginning, filled with twists and turns, softened only by steamy scenes. This is not a book that is filled with sex and struggling to develop a story between the hotness. It would have been a good story without amping it up with the seduction and love elements. Happily, those elements are woven appropriately in the story, making it delicious. Yum. I want more.
