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.

What the Critics Say

"Banks nicely balances bedroom and battlefield action as Rionnas tough swordsmanship and Caelens tender lust propel the couple and the clans toward harmony." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "My favorite"

    I disagree with the bad reviews. I think the hero showed a lot of care and love towards the heroine from the beginning. You just have to look at the subtle signs from the first scene and on in this book. He was a strong hero and had lost soo much, so I totally understood him and his pain. I loved our heroine too, she wasn't overly strong or overly weak. So had a good balance. I don't like the women to be to strong and out do the males, so this was a good balance I thought. I did want to here about Gannon more and see if he will find a mate.

    "warrior and his warrior princess !!"

    I love a great story where the woman is strong, but still feminine, were the man still loves her as she is above anything else.

    Story
    "Best of the three in series, great matchup"

    A good example of saving the best for last... the third and final installment following Calen and Rionna was by far the most satisfying of the series. It followed a predictable path (sudden marriage, he tries to change her, she is strong willed, they fall in love, their strength is tested against the antagonist of the series in a crescendo and final showdown), but it was no less enjoyable for that formula. Each of them were headstrong, and ultimately after the same thing, but their clashes of personality kept the sparks up and their ferocity kept things interesting.

    The only thing I think I noticed that I took issue with was how Calen repeatedly draws attention to the fact that he is not particularly well spoken (and that he expresses himself better on paper than aloud) and yet throughout their intimate scenes he is constantly spouting loving and poetic compliments - then in the epilogue when we finally hear a piece of his writing it is some of the Least eloquent narrative in the whole book. But maybe that's just me.

    In any case, I enjoyed it so much I finished it in a day. A great Scottish romance read, a perfect embodiment of its sub genre.
    Narration was good, the only trouble being discerning some of the various male voices, as has been the case with Potter's dialogue throughout the series.

    "Love these Highlanders!"

    I hate that the series seems to have ended, bittersweet. I hope she continues with the kids! The narrative was again awesome. I have some books I can't even finish because the reader is awful.

    Story
    "I need a Scot"
    What did you love best about Never Love a Highlander?

    Riona's fierceness, love for her clan, and loyalty, and Caelan's fierceness, love for his clan, and his loyalty. For some reason their story was my favorite out of all 3, or maybe it was just a great ending to an wonderful series. I think I loved this story the most because these two had the most internal conflicts out of the 6 main characters, and I think I identified with that most.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end! No spoilers from me


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! We want more, we want more!
