Susana and the Scot (Untamed Highlanders)
Andrew Lochlannach travels to Susana Dounreay’s estate to help her protect her lands from other clans intent on taking advantage of her aging father. Little did he know that he’d find his long-lost soul mate.
I’d be spoiling the story if I gave away how Susana and Andrew remember one another. It’s the cornerstone to most of the conflict in the story. Susana is feisty and abrasive. In many romance novels, a scorching, firebrand of a heroine is softened by the presence of a man. I was hoping Susana wouldn’t lose her edge, but she did.
By working with her to defend her father’s land, Andrew melded her into a sweet, marriageable, feminine woman. Susana’s precocious daughter, Isobel, filled in the void of female assertiveness, but also served to highlight how stubborn and childish Susana was being the whole time. Andrew was a decent hero. He was aggressive and masculine, as well as cunning and persuasive.
Susana and the Scot was full of intrigue, flying arrows, and clashing swords. The only thing missing was a female presence with a bit more bite. You won’t regret picking up this steamy page-turner.
