Sins of the past haunt the innocent of the present

The Highlander's Dangerous Temptation (The MacLeries, #7)The Highlander’s Dangerous Temptation by Terri Brisbin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Athdar is a man scarred by tragedy and afraid to let his guard down to love once again. That is until he realises that the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed perky Isobel is now of a marrying age. Of course he is thinking more on the lines of her being bedable, doable and scrumptiously lovable. It is such a shame that her father doesn’t really like Athdar, which makes the lovely Isobel persona-non-toucha.
Fortunately for him this female has her own mind, game plan and strategy to get Athdar to notice her. She isn’t exactly ‘sin personified’ as described in the blurb though. More like innocent nymphet fumbling around in the dark.
The story had a good pace and I am glad to say it didn’t suffer from any hyped up steamy scenes or cheesy dialogue, which is often the case with these type of stories.
It also had the added bonus of a mystery on top of this historical romance. Overall it was good read that ticked all the boxes.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.
